Ayzart is an independent, nonprofit art space.

Ayzart is an independent, nonprofit art space. Ayza is reserving its windows for artists on a busy street in the heart of West Village, intending to interrogate the relationship between artistic creativity & limited space.

http://goo.gl/23fKr In today’s cities, bars and restaurants are more than an eating and drinking place, especially in metropolitan areas such as New York City. Gathering environments supplant traditional family dinners to meet the needs of the city culture. This tradition appears in a dynamic way as a ritual, where we meet and have dialogue to associate with the surroundings we live in. In regards to this, Ayza strives to be a part of the dynamic change in this cosmopolitan city by bringing art to its surroundings. Ayza is reserving its windows for artists on a busy street in the heart of West Village. The concept in itself plays a role between the private sphere and the public area. By bringing art in the street, AyzART breaks the conventions of gallery space in an attempt to offer a demotic approach of art, expanding the audience and the possibilities of interactions. It brings the interior out, and the exterior in rather then using art as a decorative piece. The area allocated intends to bring the question of the relationship between artistic creativity and limited space. Thus, it enhances the creativity of both emerging and established artists to curate and develop their own exhibition. Ayza Wine and Chocolate Bar
Ayza is a perfect combination of romantic restaurant & elegant wine bar, providing an impeccable, first-class dining experience. The unique menu, coupled with a selection of over 90 fine wines and champagnes from all over the world, creates a truly remarkable experience. Ayza café, wine and chocolate bar, offers its patrons first-rate food and wines in an elegant, yet comfortable atmosphere, in which to dine, meet friends, or have drinks after work. www.ayzanyc.com

Press Release

Through the use of found and readymade materials, the sculptor Donna Cleary expresses the tension between organic and inorganic forms, these opposing but interdependent elements intertwine in her art like the two inseparable halves of a strand of DNA.

In her newest work Helix (2014), industrial yellow tubing protrudes from the body of an antique mannequin. The entire installation is lit from within by an unnatural glow, as if the rubber tubing were connected to an infernal machine designed to suck the light force out of the anthropomorphic figure. This theme of suction is further reinforced by the artificial feeding ni**le for a baby cow that adorns the figure’s left breast.

On closer inspection however, it appears that there can be no extraction taking place, since the tubing leads at points, back to the source from whence it came. What’s more, the feedback loop is broken: harsh white light gushes from a hole in the mannequin’s pelvis and leaks out around the edges of the ni**le like ever so much spilt milk.

It is only once we have fully processed the technical inefficiency of this arrangement that its true meaning and purpose come into focus: Helix is both a cry of protest against the heartless ethos of the industrialist, and an impassioned confirmation of the ethos of the artist. This is art for arts sake, a valiant gesture in a world ruled by utility and profit.
AyzART, a wine and chocolate bar with a dedicated art space in the heart of the West Village, aims to connect with street art and its audience, while opening up a creative dialogue between the two. The mission of AyzART is to break the convention of a gallery space by making its large street-level windows available for emerging and established artists to develop their own exhibitions. We seek to bring together artists of different generations and backgrounds as we celebrate gifted visual artists whose practice ties in with AyzART’s vision: making art visible in the community’s landscape, open to the eyes of the street.

NOIR AGE – Richard Vergez
On view June 16th through July 18th, 2014
Opening Reception: June 16th, 6-9 PM
AyzART, One 7th Avenue South, West Village


PRESS RELEASE

AyzART, an independent, non-profit art space, is pleased to present the site-specific mixed media installation Noir Age by Richard Vergez who is a Cuban-American visual artist. Vergez was born in Philadelphia, PA, and currently works and resides in Brooklyn, NY. His background in graphic design and audio/visual collaboration is reflected though his hand-made collaged works on paper and mixed media. Imagery that combines both human and technological elements relates to ideas surrounding an ever-evolving modern identity. His work has been featured at No Romance Galleries in TriBeCa, Chicago Urban Arts Society and Kids of Dada in London; as well as numerous blogs and international publications such as PluzUltra in Argentina, Mekanik Copulaire from France, Upper Playground and Stylesight in the US. His work is will be published this Summer in a new book by Barcelona- based publishing house Index Book, called under the name of CUT OUT FOR COLLAGE.

Angelica Vergel, in her review of Vergez work, relates the following: “It’s easy to point out Richard Vergez’s influences: Dada, Surrealism, and any movement deemed avant-garde. However, unlike his predecessors, Vergez’s collages are neither chance arrangements or nonsensical, but rather these mass-produced images are carefully composed constructions that are minimalistic and aesthetically clean. Vergez manages to reflect on his influences, but takes their photomontage technique and edits down to the essentials: shapes affecting objects, landscapes and the people who inhibit in these spaces. His use of negative space creates a focal point on a narrative that is both abstract and concrete. What is presented are isolated environments in which humans become architecture becoming objects, or is it the other way around? These cut-and-paste collages are whimsical, funny, sensual, and at times violent. These themes, also found in Vergez's graphic design and sound work, are a reflection of each practice. This multi-disciplinary approach experiments with elements of space, form, and time, and are in dialogue with each other. There is so much mystery within Vergez’s work, but personally they are the type of mystery that I rather keep as indefinite; instead I want to be immersed by the unknown in his creations.”
