REALM OF OSIRIS: Art of the Egyptian Mummy
Oct 26, 2017 -- Nov 18, 2017
We are pleased to introduce our current exhibition, Realm of Osiris: Art of the Egyptian Mummy. A great deal of artwork from ancient Egypt has come down to us by virtue of the fact that it was carefully placed in a tomb for use in the Afterlife. The great volume of Egyptian funerary art has often led modern observers to conclude that the ancient Egyptians were obsessed with death. In fact, the opposite was true. The Egyptians had grown accustomed to comfortable lives in a time when most of humanity was scratching out a short and difficult stone age existence. The Egyptians were among the first humans to live long and well. They quite literally wanted to take it with them when they passed away and entered the western realm of Osiris, lord of the Dead. To this end they developed over the course of more than two millennia, burial practices that were meant to ensure that their eternal afterlife would be filled with the familiar necessities and pleasures of their brief time in the realm of the mortals.

UNMASKED
Oct 26, 2017 -- Nov 18, 2017
Theo Eshetu / Jebila Okongwu / Graeme Williams / Sue Williamson / Herv Youmbi Image: Theo Eshetu. Atlas, 2017 Unmasked probes the underbelly beneath surface appearances and projections. The five artists in this exhibition engage ideas about the American dream, flush out the obscured truths behind political crimes, and examine distorted Western notions about non-Western art, as well as the dynamics of power. Theo Eshetus Atlas Fractured, a multimedia installation shown at documenta14, layers images from diverse cultures and periods to destabilize cultural hegemony. A key strategy in Atlas Fractured is the projection of portraits of living people over ethnographic masks or other artworks, creating a lived relationship to past and or foreign cultures. This creates a play with history and a quest for enduring values. Theo Eshetu remarks, The now is grotesque, uncertain, and burdened by the ghosts of the past. Yet there is also beauty in the present, a vitality for new justices, a search for new harmonies, and, contrary to facile political tendencies, acceptance and desire for hybrid states hitherto unknown. Jebila Okongwu constructs collages from fragments of the boxes used to transport bananas on well-worn commodity routes between the Third World and the First World. Okongwus masks suggest that the banal contemporary reality of banana trade masks underlying power dynamics, which overlay the bloody histories of slavery and colonization, and even permeate personal relationships. His mask images are constructed through the act of cutting, they embody violence, and some also reference constraint and the complex intertwining of sadism and masochism. Graeme Williams unmasks the American Dream by turning his lens on contrasting neighborhoods in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, bleak suburban subdivisions for the upwardly mobile, and gritty urban environments for the working poor and the unemployed. He centers triptychs of these environments with collaged posters that reference idealizations of America that were spread around the world in the mid 20th century, through comics, movies, and other forms of popular culture. Sue Williamson reveals how the truths of murders and other atrocities were unmasked during South Africas Truth & Reconciliation hearings, where perpetrators could appeal for amnesty after facing their victims or victims surviving families. The two Truth Games works on exhibition relate to the court appearances of Winnie Mandela and the killers of American student Amy Biehl. Viewers can shuttle fragments of statements within these works, reordering truth and shifting appearance and interpretation. Herv Youmbis multi-media installations entitled Visages des Masques/Faces of Masks undermine Western ideas about African Art, old and new. Questioning the notion of tribal styles, his masks combine diverse cultural sources, including even the Halloween Ghostface mask from Wes Cravens movie Scream. Yet, Youmbis masks often are ritually empowered, and he documents them being ceremonially performed, which qualifies them as authentic although they are contemporary. Youmbi collaborates with traditional carvers, beaders, and coiffure makers, nuancing the idea of his authorship, and blurring the categories of traditional African art and contemporary art.

Sue Collier: Recollections and Reflections
Oct 31, 2017 -- Nov 25, 2017
The Painting Center is pleased to present Sue Collier: Recollections and Reflections in the Main Gallery. Sue Colliers exhibition, Recollections and Reflections, her first at The Painting Center includes a group of small plein air oils on canvas painted in Central Park, paralleling a more introspective body of work going on in her studio. Both are intuitively painted with an emphasis on color and shape relation. Although they are painted and inspired from life, the images are orchestrated instinctively pulling color and shape from across the plane, working directly, letting her eye and brush dictate. Collier loves the real, palpable qualities of paint, the radiance of color and brushwork. The hope is to preserve the life and vitality of the picture and experience of the place or memory.

Anthony Cuneo: Traces
Oct 31, 2017 -- Nov 25, 2017
The Painting Center is pleased to present: Traces, an exhibition of recent work by Anthony Cuneo in the Main Gallery. All of the work in Traces developed slowly, layer by layer, playing with textures, and opaque and translucent fields of color. Sometimes marks are scratched through, or laid on top of a surface in graphite or paint. All kinds of mark-making tools have been used, from brushes, to fingers, to repurposed packaging forms. Shapes derived from decorative traditions, and images linked to personal memories come and go throughout the series. Cuneo remains interested in the charged tensions between apparent opposites -- chaos and order, emotion and intellect, creation and decay, and even the impulse to beauty wrestling with the desire for truth. The paintings as we see them cover other, earlier states they both extinguish and very much rely on the attempts that came before them. In this sense, they are visual documents, tracing and illustrating the process of their own creation.

Philip Gerstein: Sacred Asymmetry
Oct 31, 2017 -- Nov 25, 2017
The Painting Center is pleased to present Phillip Gerstein: Sacred Geometry in the Project Room. For his second solo show in Chelsea, Gerstein presents a new series of near-minimal abstract paintings. With the compositions pared down, his emphasis on rich color and texture is the main conduit to generating an emotional response, akin to the vibrational impact of music. Several of the paintings utilize an experimental textural material, glass bead gel -- tiny glass beads suspended in a gel solution -- which dries to a faintly reflective, deep, mysterious, almost spiritual effect they change subtly with ambient light and angle of viewing. Sacred Asymmetry as the title of this show aims to bring attention both to the spiritual legacy of Abstract Art, and to the frequently utilized compositional and emotive device of asymmetrical placement. The use of asymmetry, particularly in a minimalist composition, allows for a greater sense of movement, a freshness of surprise.

Lisa Breslow: Recent Paintings
Oct 19, 2017 -- Nov 25, 2017
Lisa Breslows landscapes and cityscapes are an exercise in contrasts. Both the natural world and architectural grit have a place in her work, highlighting the pull of New York City created by these opposing forces existing side-by-side. Breslow distills her depictions of our surroundings down to their essence, creating atmospheric scenes activated by mood, energy, and light rather than a literal portrayal. Her streets and parks feel familiar, but not quite your own. Attentive to subtle moments of harmony, Breslows cityscapes are snapshots of fleeting beauty. We know these roads are busy, these sidewalks are bustling, these blocks are loud, yet in Breslows world they are quiet and meditative. The tranquility of Central Park is a natural fit for this instinct, and is a regular star of her landscapes. Sensitive to the subtle changes throughout the day and intrigued by the aesthetic overhauls from season to season, Breslow makes each return to the park feel new. The excitement she has while building the lush reflections in the lake is evident. In her latest work, Breslow expands on her tonalist sensibilities and emboldens her compositions with a more heightened and varied color palette. Her scenes revel in the interplay of light, color, and form, and capturing these elements with looser, broader brushstrokes has her work inching ever closer to abstraction. To resist being caught up in specificity, Breslow often turns her panels as she works to keep it fresh and less confined. Striving for a pared down simplicity, her paintings appear mirage-like. They do not represent the city as you see it day-to-day, but the city you imagine in your fondest memories. Lisa Breslow has exhibited extensively in the United States, including recently at the Heritage Museum and the Heckscher Museum. She has been awarded two Pollock-Krasner Foundation awards, as well as an award from the National Academy Museum in New York, and was an Invited Artist at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking. She lives and works in New York City.

Susan English: Intervals
Oct 19, 2017 -- Nov 25, 2017
An interval can signify the transition between places, events, or time. It is in these spaces that Susan English thrives. Her works are specifically calibrated sequences of intervals, activated by those particular moments of passage between color and surface. These narrative relationships can either evoke a sense of vastness or of intimacy. English begins with small watercolor studies inspired by the symbiosis of color and light. They are essentially landscapes reduced to their simplest forms, coastal horizons pared down to bands of land, ocean, and sky. Then, she proceeds to pour transparent layers of tinted polymer onto panels, tilting and shifting the surfaces as they spread and pool across the plane. These panels are assembled into a narrative sequence that resonates with English, and left to dry. Ultimately, this process is left up to fate. As those layers harden, English can barely predict how the colors may change, or where cracks, coagulations, or pools of paint appear. Sometimes, English will pour again, rearrange the panels, or cut them down until shes satisfied. Her final surfaces capture a delicate relationship between control and accident. An interval can also signify a pause, a moment to stop and take a breath between bouts of activity. With its tranquil palette and ability to draw you into a meditative space as you get lost in its layers, Englishs work represents an opportunity to take this breath. She creates a catalyst for the immersive experience she makes room for when finding inspiration a chance to solely get lost in observation. Susan English has exhibited widely throughout the United States. She has been a Saltenstall Foundation Fellow, and a Teaching Artist at Dia:Beacon. She has an MFA from Hunter College, and studied at the New York Studio School. She lives and works in Cold Spring, NY.

Edgewalkers and Worldbuilders: New Artists at Cavin-Morris Gallery
Oct 12, 2017 -- Nov 25, 2017
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: EDGEWALKERS AND WORLDBUILDERS: New Artists at Cavin-Morris Gallery October 12 - November 25, 2017 The last two years have been rich and rewarding in our gallerys collaborations with art brut and non-mainstream artists from around the world. We designed this exhibition to introduce and showcase some of those artists and estates weve begun working with recently. We are pleased to be working with Gallery St. Etienne and the family of Serbian old master Ilija Bosilj, in presenting his paintings in this exhibition, and at the Paris and New York Outsider Art Fairs. Along with Bosilij, our exhibition will include works by Herman Bossert from the Netherlands, Kashinath Chawan from India, Caroline Demangel and Izabella Ortiz from France, ric Derkenne and ric Derochette from Belgium, John Devlin from Canada, Frantisek Dymek and Ota Prouza from the Czech Republic, Davood Koochaki from Iran, and Ryuhei Shibata, Katsuo Tokunaga and Kyoko Arita from Japan. These artists align with our gallery because each has created a personal universe in their art. The work is not made for an art world agenda, but rather created by private motivations. These artists represent a compelling international presence of creators content to work out of the spotlight. The excellence of their oeuvre insists that they come forward.

Yusuke Ochiai POI: The Messenger of Love
Nov 02, 2017 -- Dec 09, 2017
Yusuke Ochiai / POI: A Messenger of Love November 2 December 9, 2017 Opening Reception: Thursday, November 2, 6-8pm Onishi Gallery: 521 W 26th Street, New York, NY 10001 Onishi Gallery is proud to present Poi: A Messenger of Love, the first U.S.-based solo exhibition of Japanese artist Yusuke Ochiai. Working as a street artist in New York City for several years already, Ochiai has gained attention through his public installations, foremost among which is poieverywhere, a project in which Ochiai placed miniature anime-style figurines in hidden corners of the cityon traffic lights, in building nooks, on sidewalk crevices. The small, sweet, monochromatic creatures search for belonging in their stillness amidst the towering urban landscape. Building on this playful engagement with New York Citys public, Poi: A Messenger of Love features Poi-related creationsartworks that variously represent Ochiais muse named Poi, short for Path Of Imagination. As Ochiai explains this character, Thats exactly how I found him, through my own imagination but now Poi manifests himself in countless forms, on canvas, in concrete, and with paint immersing himself in the colors I absorb. Poi gives me the happiness that I hope to bring to the world. A fantastical anime figure, Poi has long rabbit-like ears and a round head, and two long arms and legs often extended confidently in a mid-air jump or an expression of happiness. Poi came to Ochiai in a dream in 2012 and conveyed a clear message to the artist: Just do it. Believe in yourself. Do not give up. I love you. Ochiai now gives form, color, and opportunity to Poi in order to teach love, and this exhibition offers viewers a glimpse of his creative vision. Colorful, large paintings fill the gallery like bursts of energy, all centered on depictions of Poi. Borders of creeping flowers, concentric circles of color evoking the mandala, and bright, otherworldly orbs of light frame the unique figure. While his images appear playful and innocent to the eye, titles such as Sunrise 121 and Super Head Banging reveal deeper layers of meaning. As Ochiai notes, these visual expressions represent my emotions and experiences at that particular moment of my life whether stemming from reality or my own imagined dreamscapes. They are colorful swirls of love and lust, earthly experience and otherworldly possibility. The paintings pull in viewers to share a moment of connection with Poi, this messenger of love, and envision a dream of another reality. Yusuke Ochiai was born in Tokyo in 1977 and became entranced with the vibrant colors of his surrounding Japanese landscape at five years old, mixing and matching materials ever since. Today, he lives and works in Bushwick, Brooklyn and has been participating in Bushwick Open Studios in Brooklyn since 2012. This exhibition is curated by Nana Onishi, the Director of Onishi Gallery, and Kyoko Sato, a New York-based independent curator. For more information, please contact Nana Onishi at 212-695-8035 or nana@onishigallery.com. Or, please visit the gallery website at www.onishigallery.com.

William Villalongo Keep on Pushing
Oct 26, 2017 -- Dec 09, 2017
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Keep on Pushing, an exhibition of new cut-paper work and paintings on panel by gallery artist William Villalongo from 26 October through 9 December 2017. Known for irreverent riffs on the art historical muse, William Villalongo has made episodic paintings and works on paper, which underscore historical erasure and master narratives of desire. In his fifth solo exhibition at Susan Inglett Gallery, the artist turns his attention to the black male figure, while returning to his signature cut velvet paper works. This new body of work suggests a re-imagining of the black male figure at a time when current events and statistics reflect a social reality of limited expectations, contingency, and disproportionate fear. Within the dark tones of these meditations on physiology, the artist uses metaphors of invisibility, nature, and reformation as necessary conditions of being. Much like fallen autumn leaves, Villalongos men navigate their world, subject to an unpredictable wind - piling, spinning, and re-collecting. The work conjures spaces of sensuality, humor, and history. Titled after Curtis Mayfields 1970 Keep on Pushing, Villalongos recent body of work speaks to the inherent human spirits will to persevere and to find a way. WILLIAM VILLALONGO was born in 1975 and raised in Bridgeton, NJ. He received his B.F.A. from The Cooper Union School of Art and his M.F.A. from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. Villalongo has exhibited extensively with recent appearances in Woke! William Villalongo and Mark Thomas Gibson at the USF Contemporary Art Museum in Tampa, and is the co-curator with Gibson of the highly acclaimed traveling exhibition Black Pulp. His work has been included in recent shows at the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, MoMA PS1, the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts, and the Studio Museum in Harlem. Reviews have appeared in Artforum, ARTnews, The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, and The Village Voice among others. The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. The Gallery will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday 23 through 27 November 2017. For additional information please contact Susan Inglett Gallery at 212 647 9111, fax 212 647 9333 or info@inglettgallery.com.

Guo Hongwei: Plastic Heaven
Nov 16, 2017 -- Dec 09, 2017
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening on November 16 , 2017 of Guo Hongwei: Plastic Heaven. Since Things, his first exhibition at Chambers Fine Art in 2009, Guo Hongwei has continued to focus on painting although in The Great Metaphorist in 2014 he adopted a multi-media approach for a metaphorical exploration of the daily commute between his home and studio. In spite of this temporary diversion, in the last decade he has produced a remarkably varied group of paintings and water colors in which manmade objects and materials from the natural world are transformed by his innovative handling of watercolor and unusual combinations of different pigments and media in his oil paintings. Plastic Heaven follows immediately after the closing of The Pre-existent Painting at Chambers Fine Art in which he developed ideas first explored in Painting is Collecting of 2012. In these exhibitions his great love for and extensive knowledge of the way in which specimens from the natural and mineral worlds have been collected, depicted and classified since the Renaissance i provided the thematic material for the display of his remarkable virtuosity as a watercolorist. In The Pre-existent Painting he explored analogies between the growth patterns of minerals and the behavior of watercolor with waste materials from industrial painting processes that grow organically through the accumulation of dust and other materials. Simultaneously with the production of the seventy or more small watercolors and the other components of this exhibition, Guo Hongwei was working on a new series of oil paintings which focus on the anonymous, manmade subject matter which he has always favored for the challenges it presents to his painterly skills. Mixing his oil paints with a variety of different varnishes and experimenting with traditional materials such as megilp, a mixture of mastic resin and linseed oil widely used in the 19th century, Guo Hongwei is able to create confined brushstrokes which can be manipulated separately in order to create different textures and forms. He carefully lays down each brushstroke in response to the appearance of the objects he depicts a piece of fruit wrapped in plastic and enlarged until it is recognizable, or a blanket thrown over an unrecognizable object as in Transformed by the Setting Sun and adds a metaphorical layer through the choice of poetic and allusive titles. Even although Guo Hongweis paintings have become more colorful and painterly since Things, they are painstakingly constructed and subject to numerous drastic revisions during the process of execution. In a discussion of his approach to painting, he has spoken of the way in which each brushstroke can change the entire composition, however strong the methodology of the artist. Rather than attempting to replicate the three dimensional qualities of objects through the fusion of multiple brush-strokes, closely related in tonality, he constructs them through an accumulation of painterly inventions, each one highly distinctive. Depending on whether he uses white or a black ground, his paintings vary greatly in visual impact. There is a distinct contrast between works in which single objects are depicted in isolation on a monochromatic ground and others in which the surface of the canvas is covered with pigment although the images that result are generally enigmatic and hard to identify. At first glance the brilliantly colored The Gate appears to be an eccentric abstraction although the artist has confirmed that the imagery is based on a plastic walker used by Guos young son while learning to walk. In contrast the Chinese characters in Plastic Heaven are based on a photographic image that caught his attention although they are deprived of definite meaning during the process of painterly transformation into a taught composition bristling with energy. Opposed to the notion of painting in series, Guo seeks the perfect match between of thematic content, whatever its source, and the multitude of brushstrokes, each one unique and carefully considered as it relates to the whole. This approach leads to the remarkable diversity of the new body of work.

SANDRA KOPONEN / Transmogrified Weather
Nov 10, 2017 -- Dec 09, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 6 - 9PM GALLERY HOURS: WED - SAT, 12PM - 6PM CLOSED NOVEMBER 23 Sla307 Art Space is pleased to announce a painting exhibition by Sandra Koponen entitled /Transmogrified Weather/. This is Koponens first solo exhibition in New York City. The opening reception is Friday, November 10 from 6-9pm. Sandra Koponen states: I start paintings haphazardly and come back to them in stages, applying the paint thickly and quickly. Similar to an ink blot, the forms are suggested, not readily apparent. They inspire a scene, painterly, not figurative. Weathered barns, old trucks and worn objects have always intrigued me, and the paintings look as though they too are worn over time, gaining the solidity and heft of an artifact. I want to stimulate a synesthetic reaction, triggering aural and tactile hallucinations. Ideally a painting serves as a talisman into a dream world. /sla307.com/ /sandra-koponen.com/

Expanding Space
Nov 02, 2017 -- Dec 21, 2017
Loretta Howard Gallery is pleased to present Expanding Space: Ronald Bladen, Al Held, Yvonne Rainer and George Sugarman, November 2nd through December 21st, 2017. This exhibition examines four closely-knit friends and artists who shared a complex personal, intellectual, and artistic history. Convening in New York in the late 1950s, their passionate debates and give- and-take of ideas lent intensity and rigor to their creative endeavors. Carving out new artistic ground, they adopted a mode of minimal art making that was reductive, powerful, and playful. In 1965, Irving Sandler grouped these visual artists together in his exhibition Concrete Expressionism because they were close in attitude to each other. This attitude extended to Rainers choreography, which rejected the emotion of Martha Grahams dance just as the visual artists were disenchanted with the drama of Abstract Expressionism. As Robert Mattison states in his essay, all four opted instead for clear compositions that occupy their own space. A fully illustrated catalogue with essay by Robert S. Mattison will be published during the exhibition. For additional information, please contact Christiana Ine-Kimba Boyle at 212.695.0164 or christiana@lorettahoward.com.

Tomoo Gokita: Beauty
Nov 02, 2017 -- Dec 22, 2017
Tomoo Gokita's gift of observation is apparent in a surprising new series of Fake Cezanne paintings. At once Realist homage and Conceptual card trick, these would seem to be faithful renditions of Cezanne still-lifes, yet by rendering the images in lush halftones, Gokita evokes grainy, nostalgic reproductions in vintage art journals rather than original masterpieces.

Regina Scully Mindscapes
Nov 02, 2017 -- Dec 23, 2017
C24 Gallery proudly presents Mindscapes, a solo exhibition of new paintings and works on paper by New Orleans based artist Regina Scully. Mindscapes will be on view November 2 December 23, 2017 with an Opening Reception on Thursday, November 2 from 6pm- 8pm. This new collection of immersive works invites the viewer to enter, explore, and travel through Scullys imagined worlds of gesture and color. Her artworks recall experiences and memories unique to each viewer, and encourage the onlooker to escape the barriers of the physical world. The paintings embolden the viewer to let go of the rational mind that governs perception and engage oneself in inner exploration through a unique visual experience. Scullys paintings exist in the realm of both playful and contemplative discovery. Incorporating elements of abstraction with hints of figurations, her works are dynamic aggregations of an entangled atmosphere filled with familiar symbols, shapes and environments. Patterns of delicate brushwork, poured paint, and a unique use of space and palette create a complex pathway made from vivid colors and rhythmic movement, inherent to the artists work. Painting from an intuitive and open mindset, Scully experiments with new combinations of colors and creating space and form while also challenging ideas about sight and perception. By continually changing her working environment with lighting, mood, and orientation of the canvas while painting, Scully pushes the boundaries of not only her practice, but of physical and psychological space. Regina Scully lives and works in New Orleans, Louisiana. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, Scully received her B.F.A. in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design and her M.F.A. in Painting from University of New Orleans. She has exhibited throughout the United States, including most recently at The New Orleans Museum of Art. Scullys paintings are in private and public collections including the New Orleans Museum of Art, Microsoft Art Collection, the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation Collection, the Capital One Art Collection, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. A catalog of recent paintings and works on paper with an accompanying essay by Dan Cameron was published in Summer, 2015.

Ed Cohen: Contemplating Destiny
Oct 26, 2017 -- Dec 23, 2017
Ed Cohen Contemplating Destiny October 26th December 23rd , 2017 Opening Reception with the artist Thursday, October 26th, 6-8pm Winston Wachter Fine Art, New York, is excited to announce Contemplating Destiny, an exhibition of new paintings by Ed Cohen. These fluid acrylic paintings on canvas and wood panel combine the colorful energy of abstract expressionism with the rich stillness of spiritual art. Through earthy and minimal works, Cohen explores human nature and the universal search for serenity. In these paintings, Cohen continues to draw inspiration from literature and poetry. This series began with the Aeneid Book 6, which follows Aeneass journey from the sea to Troy, and into the underworld. Like Virgil, Cohen focuses on the transitory nature of being human. Through richly colored circles and expressive shapes, these works explore the cycle of life, death and rebirth. The universal experience of searching for peace and the sanctuary of homeland is at the heart of this body of work. Cohen explores an expanded palette including deep blues and greens, which evoke the vitality of the earth, as well as gold and silver, which symbolize the practice of alchemy and the eternal quest to understand the mysteries of the universe. An Idea is better than writing it down places a gold circle on a fluid silver background that evokes the texture of marble. In I was happy there in legend, an organic silver circle rests on a deep red background, pristine and polished. The circle is a key element of Cohens work, as a meditative symbol of prayer and intention in these lush and vibrant paintings. In The momentous present folding over the future like a wave overtaking a grain of sand, multicolored paint drips fall on a sensuous gold ground, embracing both meditative control and instinctive playfulness. This combination of restraint and spontaneity is common throughout Cohens work. The works in Contemplating Destiny are minimal yet possess a deep chromatic depth and connection with the earth, allowing the viewer to meditate and reflect on their own.

Saddle Up New Works by Billy Schenck
Nov 16, 2017 -- Jan 20, 2018
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: Saddle Up New Works by Billy Schenck Nov 16th, 2017 January 20th, 2018 Artists Reception: Thursday, November 16th, 2017 from 6-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by November 13th, 2017 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com Saddle Up Galloping horses, blood orange sunsets, dusty cowboys - you can almost feel the rising heat from the sun-warmed earth. Billy Schenck has a definitive flair for highlighting the drama, and evoking the action of classic Westerns along with their corresponding mythology. The American Frontier holds a special place in our nations history, as well as in our imaginations. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Billy Schenck, capturing the persevering nature of the myths and dreams of the Old West. Schencks work is not only cinematic in scope it is also grounded in technique and style. His iconic, reductive approach is reminiscent of the color planes used in early computer graphics, establishing a visual dialogue between the straightforward subject matter and the more nuanced space of the rendering. The textual element of the comic book-inspired word bubbles is of equal importance to the meaning of each piece, often serving to either undermine or establish the guiding ambitions of the characters psyche. In subject, Schenck goes for the iconic imagery of the Wild, Wild West - cowboys and Indians, sunsets and gunfire. Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work. BILLY SCHENCK b. 1947, Rural America works and lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Schencks artwork is in over 48 museum collections, including Smithsonian Institution, Denver Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Albuquerque Fine Arts Museum and the New Mexico Museum of Art. Billy Schencks work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and youre sure to find the right artistic expression!

RACHEL LIBESKIND, THE DAY THE FATHER DIED, Curated by Mitra Khorasheh
Nov 29, 2017 -- Dec 03, 2017
Opening reception / Performance: Wednesday November 29 6:30-8:30pm KHORASHEH GRUNERT is pleased to present The Day The Father Died, an installation and performance by artist Rachel Libeskind. The exhibition features video works, sound, poetry, sculptural elements, works on paper and paintings, all made in conjunction for the world premiere of The Day The Father Died, Libeskinds most recent performance piece. The opening reception will take place on Wednesday, November 29th at 524 West 19th Street, from 6:30-8:30pm. The performance will begin promptly at 7:30pm. The exhibition will be on view through December 3rd. This marks Libeskinds first exhibition at KHORASHEH GRUNERT. Rachel Libeskinds The Day the Father Died dissects the death of the murderous Dictator and enigmatic 20th century Icon, Stalin. The trajectory of the performance is focused on the day that Stalin died in 1953 and the subsequent funereal ritual that engulfed the entire USSR however, in essence, Libeskind comments on the infantilization of society under an authoritarian father-leader paradigm as seen with Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Tito, and others. Part re-enactment, part homage, at times critical yet humorous, the work is foremost autobiographical in nature. Libeskind owes her own existence to Stalin her grandparents met in 1941 at a Gulag in what is now Kyzyl-Kiya. Both Polish Jews who escaped to Russia after the Nazi invasion of 1939, the artists ancestors were individually arrested and thrown into work camps. As the war progressed, they were moved further and further east. Years later, in Soviet Poland, Libeskinds father recalled the confusing day of Stalins death mired in loud sobs and whispered jubilations that the Vozdh had finally died.And you have sent a black snowstorm over Moscow. The myth of my Grandmothers rebellion against tyranny Russian, Autocratic, Male is a golden seed planted inside my mind that has grown branches which now extend how into the world.Jewish Whores make good agitators. Rachel Libeskind This confusion lasts until today, where factories that once printed hundreds of millions ofStalins state portrait until 1990, have now resurrected the old printing machines, refilled their ink, and rigorously return to the deification of JosefVissarionovichStalin aka Zoso, the poet, the revolutionary, the killer, the father, the obsessive doodler, bornIoseb Jughashvili. Not only is Russia experiencing their own Stalin revival amid a total revision of the facts that frame their history, but in light of the greater socio-political climate of our time, these issues resurface once more. Conceived in dialogue, the exhibition features a series of large format paintings that expands the artists unique combination of historicist appropriation and improvisational re-arranging. Using a variety of methods to work on canvas, Libeskind combines imagery and poetry, while utilizing a direct performative action and playful irreverence in process and application of image, text, paint, and ink on canvas. The two accompanying video works in the exhibition are whimsical narratives that combine the familiar with the unfamiliar, as Libeskind assembles, discovers, recycles, and re-invents various found footage together with her own sound collage. The Day the Father Died explores the ambivalent and ambiguous relationship between authority and social reality. It frames this moment in history from a femme perspective, from the soul of children who have been conditioned to see Stalin as their father, creator the man who keeps their mother Russia contented. Together, Libeskinds performance and new body of work navigate the problem of sustaining a critical moment of aesthetic experience without legitimizing dictatorship, mass culture, mass production or its supposed opposite. The common medium throughout is ambivalence.

Echoes
Nov 30, 2017 -- Dec 23, 2017
ECHOES A Group Show November 30th December 23rd, 2017 NEW YORK, NYOctober 3rd, 2017 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Echoes, a group show of works that are manifestations of loss curated by Alyssa Alexander and Celeste Kaufman. An echo, at its core, is a distant version of what it once was. A sound reverberates, then fades. It can be a haunting memory, or instill a sense of wonder. An echo can also be a reminiscence, a nod to something that came before it. The present echoes the past. It is not a perfect replication of it, but an acknowledgement of its heritage. The works collected in this group show are echoes both in process and in concept. Their origins are transformed and concealed. The resulting piece appears to be its own entity, but still contains whispers of how it began. There is a loss of form, color, or imagery, but that does not detract from what remains. These artists are also investigating the loss of places, time, objects, and concepts as they create so that the work itself becomes an homage, an echo, to these distant sources. Peter Hoffers landscapes at first appear to be traditional serene and glossy representations of the world around us. However, upon stepping closer you discover that the paintings have drips and inconsistent marks, and the surfaces are scratched, cracked, and seared. He has manipulated them into different states of retrograde, as if they are antiquated works that have been abandoned and then uncovered. They carry a sense of nostalgia for both bygone times and the places that collect these kinds of memories, the attics and antique stores where you might stumble across an artifact akin to the one he has created. Sarah Irvins ink series reflects the shifting nature of memory, the evolution of language on an individual and societal level, and how the dependability of both can be lost over time. The series was initially inspired by her grandfathers loss of language due to Alzheimers disease, but developed further as she began to use the limited language skills of her baby daughter as a starting point, shifting her focus from the end of our relationship with words to the beginning. She begins with ink and non-absorbent Yupo paper, writing words in expressive cursive, then destroys those marks with squeegees, pulling the ink across the paper to form rich, dynamic new images. Remnants of the words sometimes remain visible, but their meaning cant be deciphered. Jeffrey Cortland Jones work is deceptively minimalist. A depth is revealed beyond the initial perception of monochromatic surfaces thats built up through layers of rich color. Jones is not creating white paintings he is pushing colors to their very limits, to the moment just before they become white. The under-painting peeks through here and there, giving a glimpse to the shades and textures that construct the final work. Its because of these hidden features that Jones considers himself something of a landscape painter, inspired by the grit and entropy of his urban surroundings. He draws qualities from the peeling layers of paint on concrete walls, the scratches left behind by skateboards on handrails, the flecks of metal that shine through as surfaces are eroded over time. The surfaces of his paintings are then not only the ghosts of the colors underneath, but of the largely abandoned industrial landscape. Ryan Sarah Murphy constructs reliefs from discarded cardboard. Finding her materials out on the street or in the remnants of her own consumerism, she removes any identifying branding, text, or images and uses whats left without painting or treating them. Murphy allows whats left to guide her, using its energy and unknown history to shape her decisions as she assembles them into forms that meet at the intersection of abstraction and architectural elements, suggesting a strange terrain seen from an aerial view. The gritty remnants of an urban landscape are revived as bold structures with a bright, limited palette and an alluring tactile nature an unexpected iteration of our societys odds and ends. Dana Oldfather begins her paintings by blocking in a scene from her Midwestern domestic life the discomfort she feels when caught in traditional roles for women and notions of femininity, the isolation and loneliness of motherhood, the fragility of comfort and happiness. Then, she obliterates that imagery through layers of ink, spray paint, acrylic, and oil paints. The narrative is masked by frenetic mark making that possesses a pulsing energy and bittersweet beauty. However, Oldfather does not seek to hide her interior life. She considers the chaos of her abstraction to be an honest addition to it.

THE NEW FIGURATIVE Featuring America Martin

JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: THE NEW FIGURATIVE Featuring America Martin Winter/Spring 2018 Artists Reception: Thursday, February 8th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by February 3rd, 2018 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com THE NEW FIGURATIVE America Martins compositions of poetic juxtapositions conjure a story, with the figure as a central focal point for much of the framework. Strikingly bold, the expressive lines of Martins work are an assimilation of light, color, movement and form with a unique emphasis on the narrative. The imagery is familiar and transportive, steeped in personal mythology and deeply allegorical. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present a new body of work rooted in Martins unique approach in exploring the human form and its context. New York Figurative Expressionism of the 1950s laid much of the groundwork for the re-introduction of figurative painting as a predominant mode of expression. On the heels of the pure abstraction school of thought headed by Hans Hoffman, as well as the process of gestural abstraction, came a re-emergence of figurative painters. Like the still life genre in early modernism, the figure proved to be fertile ground for exploring the teachings of expressionism through color relationships, pictorial structure and spatial illusion. Martins work speaks to this legacy of utilizing the bodys formal qualities as attuned elements of precision and control, in other words a vehicle, for more visceral aspects of her artistic practice. By turns exhilaratingly fluid and densely rich, the works explore the framework of figuration, portraiture, as well as the bodys environments. New modes of expression emerge from continued internal and formal investigations, informed as well as characterized by Martins Colombian heritage with a focus on form, narrative and the symbolic. AMERICA MARTIN b. 1980, Los Angeles, CA is a Colombian American fine artist based in Los Angeles, CA. America Martins work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and youre sure to find the right artistic expression!
