Cole Sternberg at David B Smith GalleryJuxtapoz // Friday, 18 Mar 2011
David B. Smith Gallery will be opening Cole Sternberg new solo works, I was here for just a moment, in Denver tonight, Friday, March 19th. The layered text pieces that David B. Smith calls "socio-political art," with each piece containing "underlying statement on human rights, ecology, personal relationships or other subjects of emotional relevance."
Further, "Political statement and strong visuals are what make this work unique. For the last ten years, Sternberg has been challenging his viewers on subjects as varied as pop culture to human rights to the environment. Schooled in the law, and a published author on international law issues, Sternberg's insights into his subject matter give these works a unique twist rarely seen in the arts. The layers upon layers of text and scrawled graffiti are like collaged sound bites - one on top of another - yet every line and stroke with a purpose. Whatever emotional subject initiated the work, the painterly expressionism of the words and broad swaths of strong color make this exhibition one you must see."
