      Gallery House is "Breaking Boundaries in New Art Show

      In “Breaking Boundaries,” mixed media artist Magdalena Bogart and photographer Michael Endicott agreed to push each other to knock down any barriers, preconceptions and comfort zones that might possibly define the art they produce and the ruling paradigms that govern their media. To seal the deal they are creating art TOGETHER for the show. They test the nature of using paint versus photographs, the qualities of abstraction versus realism, and the dynamics of producing art with two brains instead of one. In fact, for the length of the show they will also be “creating” art with input from the public who visit the gallery during the show. Come watch and even help them compose. Their abstract roots will certainly let you create your own stories in their work.

      The show runs at Gallery House, 320 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA from September 17 through October 19, 2019. The public is invited to a reception with the artists on Friday, September 20 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. It is free to the public and a great time to share your impressions with the artists and help them make art.

      Magdalena Bogart, up until now, has been a mixed media artist with lively colors and dynamic shapes. For her: “This show is an incredible opportunity for me to explore, where my artistic drive will lead me, when I allow myself to feel FREE to do what I feel like doing with all media and tools. And to trust that it will turn out ok! It has led to different branches of art-making, not to a cohesive body of art – as usually expected. That is for me one aspect of breaking boundaries. To paint or create something which has NOT YET been done is incredibly hard. I want the assurance/safety of what other artists I admire have done already. Feeling the ground under my artistic feet instead of flying into a vacuum and the fear of falling is constantly present. Until now.”

      Michael Endicott, up until now, has been a photographer with works that range from realism to surrealism. For him, “This show reflects the dynamics of being immersed for almost two years in the culture and artistic influences of my fellow artists at Gallery House. There is no doubt that the composition, colors, light and lines in the works of my fellow artists have created a big changes in direction of my work subconsciously. As a highly reactive artist, I am excited to be teamed with Magdalena, who will challenge me to work with some “intention” as we create a work together.”
