No RUSH for relaxation, August 22-24, 2019

Opening reception: August 22 from 6pm to 9pm


Tony Saborio is a multi-disciplinary artist that thrives by working in diverse mediums and materials including lighting, sculpture, drawing, painting, and photography. And in this exhibition we get to view and appreciate his journey and the destination without needing to know the final end point. Through the process at time is frenetic, uncomfortable, beautiful, unexpected, and relentless. A mind that never rests.

To fully understand the road map of his complexity we have to go back to his upbringing and surroundings. As a military “brat” born in the Republic of Panama on an American Air Force Base. He is the son of Costa Rican immigrants. He was never really suited for the rigidity of school, but a keen interest in watching masters work on their craft aided in nurturing a love of learning art in a variety of mediums. Self-taught, hard work, dedication, and continued support from family, friends, and peers, have provided Tony with a reason to create.

His debut exhibition, 20 of the 22 pieces on display have been created in the last 11 months in the tight confide of his studio apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

All works are intended to cause deep thought and self-reflection, to contemplate our time, our interactions, our relationships, and the positivity we enjoy within those moments. As you dedicate your heart to an existence, anything you truly love is a part of a great mystery that you will never really comprehend. We have a tacit understanding that the negative is the only constant in the pursuance of maintaining positivity to move forward. Bringing others together and forgetting about everything else for a long breath with “No RUSH for Relaxation”…
