In un cielo di liquido azzurro

le nuvole sospinte dal vento

trasvolano questo incrocio

 di ondulate campagne riarse.


Trema il mare in lontananza

schiume danzanti

sfumano in diafana vibrazione.

Ore abbagliate dal sole

ci avvolgono.

Sempre più ostinato è il canto delle cicale.


E noi lentamente ci perdiamo

nella insistente luce

del pomeriggio estivo

così lungo

così irreale

Lidia Chiarelli


“Nel viaggio delle emozioni” poesia di Sergio Camellini


Nell’ultimo cassetto
di quel vecchio comò
rovisto la mia vita:

quella foto ingiallita,
quella cartolina ammuffita,
quel biglietto di teatro;

quel disco in vinile,
quel soldo bucato,
quel pennino spuntato;

quella medaglia ossidata,
quella lettera mai inviata,
quel libro di canzoni,

creano tuttora il batticuore
nel viaggio fantastico
delle mie emozioni.

di Sergio Camellini

“Night Affair”, poem by 蔡澤民 Tzemin Ition Tsai, Taiwan

Night-Affair 2


總是來得濛濛 春之

總是來得遲遲 夏之

總是來得姍姍 秋之

總是來得早早 冬之





Night affair

Always comes misty, Is not that spring?

Always goes slowly, Is not that summer?

Always brings a touch of cool, Is not that autumn?

Always falling so early, Is not that winter?

And that night

Never lets the cats on the wall

wait in vain


Un affare notturno

Sempre viene nella nebbia, non è la primavera?

Sempre se ne va lentamente, non è l’ estate?

Sempre porta un tocco di fresco, non è l’autunno?

Sempre giunge così presto, non è l’inverno?

E la notte

Mai lascia i gatti sul muro

Ad aspettare in vano

(Translated by Lidia Chiarelli)

“Crossing Lines”

Recent work by Adel Gorgy, Robert C. Morgan and Yun-Woo Choi

January 15th – February 4th, 2015

Opening Reception – Thursday, January 15th 6-8 pm

We live in a world where truly original voices are hard to find. It’s rare and exciting to encounter art that defies boundaries and labels. Able Fine Art NY has invited three artists whose work crosses lines—conceptually, materially, spatially, and experientially—to present their work in Crossing Lines, on view from January 15th through February 4th, 2015.

Each artist uses his medium, imagination and inner voice to create works that seek to contain the limitless and touch the unattainable. Choi speaks of the multi-dimensionality of the universe and how his three-dimensional works respond to it. In Gorgy’s Permutation series, where the subject is art, itself, he offers glimpses of infinite possibilities. Morgan’s paintings refer to mental states and energies, concepts that surpass the possibilities of language.

Yun-Woo Choi takes a revered, ancient practice of working with folded and reconfigured paper and updates it for a new century, with new visions and new concerns. Sustainability and re-use, long held in high regard in Asian societies, suggest the possibility of renewal, while advertising and magazine pages bring up the idea of how to co-opt the deluge of media surrounding us and remake it to our own vision.

In a series of stunning abstractions inspired by earlier works of art, Adel Gorgy offers new ways of seeing. His work transcends issues of authorship, ownership, and appropriation, and, instead, addresses consciousness and how we experience art. Can we see in works of art other than what the artist intended? Gorgy answers yes, in work that merges elements found in that of Warhol, Kelly, Albers and Gilbert and George. His large format photographs based on works by Matisse, Twombly and Warhol, intentionally blur the boundaries between painting and photography and redefine the medium.

Renowned art critic and artist Robert C. Morgan’s paintings are at once reflective and absorbing of light. They contain contradictions which challenge the static nature of works of art, and, at the same time, seem to refer to an ageless history in which the artist grapples with light and dark and all they represent. In Morgan’s work they may represent states of mind, energy or imaginable or unimaginable alternate realities.

The presentation of painting, photography and sculpture in an intimate gallery setting offers an extraordinary opportunity to experience a wide ranging and eclectic vision of new work by three highly accomplished artists. Each has exhibited widely in museums and galleries worldwide. Able Fine Art NY is proud to bring Adel Gorgy, Robert C. Morgan and Yun-Woo Choi together in Crossing Lines.

“Abstracting Abstraction” exhibition by ADEL GORGY at BAFFA Gallery, Sayville NY


Abstracting Abstraction – Traces of Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol

October 12th through October 27th, 2013 

Opening Reception: October 12th 1-4 pm

From October 12th through the 27th, BAFFA Gallery in Sayville will present Abstracting Abstraction – Traces of Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol, a solo exhibition of large scale, abstract photographic work by Long Island artist, Adel Gorgy.

Merging the conceptual with the visual into complex, multifaceted images, Adel Gorgy’s work extends the boundaries and redefines the possibilities of photography. In his work, the camera is a vital tool, but, unlike traditional photography, where the artist merely records a moment, in these works, Gorgy’s hand and vision are always present, directing, decoding, deciding and defining to arrive at an image that may bear echoes of the original, but in an entirely distinct voice.

In this recent series, Abstracting Abstraction – Traces of Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol, traces of these three artists can be perceived. But, just as they morphed and reinterpreted the realities presented to them, Gorgy reconstructs, recontextualizes and recomposes what he sees in their work into complex, intricately detailed photographs rich with imagery and meaning.

Gorgy states that he chose these three artists, Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol, not only because he loves their work, but also for what their work means to him in context of his own.

In his previous work, he took the palette and the brushstrokes of painters like Monet, Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso, recomposed them to create new compositions free of the recognizable representational components, and offered viewers a method for “Seeing Art Anew.”

So, Gorgy considers this a natural continuation of his previous work where the subject of his art is art, itself. In these pieces, Gorgy poses the question of whether abstract work can be further abstracted.  Can a conceptual work be abstracted?  Can a vision encompass art, nature and self?  The answer, Adel Gorgy says, is a resounding yes, and it is happening in Abstracting Abstraction.

Adel Gorgy’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, but he has chosen Long Island as the first venue for this group of photographs.

The genesis of this portfolio was a visit to the Pollock-Krasner house in East Hampton.  On the floor of Pollock’s studio were innumerable drips of paint, never seen before as anything more than what was left after his paintings were done.  Gorgy photographed and recomposed these remnants into completely new compositions. 

The resulting works of art in Abstracting Abstraction still retain traces of the color and line of Pollock, de Kooning and Warhol but the beauty, strength and vision are those of Adel Gorgy. Long, looping lines of bold colors dance across washes of softer tones. Passages of Pollock peek out from a field of de Kooning, all mingled seamlessly with Gorgy’s own photographs. The alchemical mixtures are surprising, thought-provoking and visually stunning.

Adel Gorgy is a New York area artist who photographic artwork has been the subject of three previous solo exhibitions. It has been included in numerous group shows, and published widely in books and magazines.

BAFFA Gallery, sponsored by the Bay Area Friends of the Fine Arts, is located in the historic Gillette House in Sayville at 47 Gillette Avenue. It has a long history of presenting exhibitions of local and regional artists, and offering the public a chance to view important contemporary works of art in an intimate, local setting.
