October 2015- Paradigm Shift

Shade Projects is proud to present Paradigm Shift, the solo exhibition of Robert Gentile in Shade Gallery, marking his much anticipated return to the monOrchid after winning the Thermal Phx art competition last summer. A skilled artist who has over the last five years rediscovered his passion for art after taking a long hiatus creating riveting works in a variety of mediums including spray paint, acrylic, markers, and pastels. Paradigm Shift explores his continued growth as an artist and his love of graffiti culture, showcasing a diverse and stunning body of mixed media work that the artist has created exclusively for his solo exhibition, says Shade Projects Curator, Nicole Royse. His work is a hybrid of classical and urban, with early roots in graffiti he has explored and adapted finding his voice through the years resulting in what he calls “visually stimulating, high contrast imagery that the audience can connect with emotionally on some level.”
