Kiyoshi Nakagami
Dec 14, 2017 -- Jan 27, 2018
Kiyoshi Nakagami creates fantastical works that burst with a tension between light and dark. His billowing cloud-like forms seem faintly familiar, reminiscent of moonlight streaming through the clouds on a dark and stormy evening.

Roadside Picnic - The Zone
Dec 14, 2017 -- Jan 27, 2018
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to present ROADSIDE PICNIC, a group exhibition of Chinese artists living in New York, curated by Hiroshi Sunairi and Yixin Sam Gong. The title of the exhibition is taken from a short science fiction novel written by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky in 1971. The 1979 art film Stalker, directed by Andrei Tarkovsky, is loosely based on the novel, with a screenplay written by the Strugatsky brothers. Set in the indefinite future, the Stalker works as a guide who leads people through the Zone, an area in which the normal laws of reality do not apply. Touching upon themes of displacement and changing realities, the curators will present the work of 10 artists: Chang Yuchen, Lang Zhang, Miranda Fengyuan Zhang, Tan Tian, Tiger Chengliang Cai, Tingying Ma in collaboration with Tina Wang and Kang Kang, Wang Tuo, Yi Xin Tong, Wei Xiaoguang, and Weigang Song. Compared to the practices of Chinese artists represented in much of the current Western art scene, these artists, educated in the United States, create works that defy the exoticization of their Chinese-ness. Their use of diverse art mediums, including painting, video, film, installation, performance, dance, drawing, and sculpture are fused with personal, idiosyncratic, theoretical, formal, satirical, poetic and ineffable contents. As the title implies, ROADSIDE PICNIC is the food meant to be eaten on an excursion by the side of a road. Where does this road lead to within the New York art world, to a maturity of style and content back in China, or toward becoming the leading voices of contemporary discourse? ROADSIDE PICNIC is a celebration of the state in flux as our global world rattles anxiously and attentively. - Hiroshi Sunairi, Stalkert and Yixin Sam Gong, Bubble B. About the curators: Hiroshi Sunairi was born in Hiroshima in 1972. Dealing with issues of collective memory and the public sphere, he creates sculpture/installation and cinema on various contents. Sunairi has exhibited internationally, and he teaches in the Art Department at New York University. Yixin Sam Gong was born and raised in Xiamen, China, and is a curator and researcher based in New York City. He has worked on several non-profit institutions in China and Southeast Asia. Gong studies Art History at Rutgers University.

JOSEPH YOAKUM ROBYN ONEIL
Dec 14, 2017 -- Jan 27, 2018
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of drawings by Joseph Yoakum 1890-1972 and gallery artist Robyn ONeil. The exhibition will be on view 14 December 2017 to 27 January 2018. Please join us for a book signing with Robyn ONeil Saturday 13 January from 4-6 PM celebrating her new monograph Twenty Years of Drawing. Mystical imaginings of far away lands inspired the drawings of Joseph Yoakum. Stylized symbols of the natural world formed their own ancestral connections by way of the artists unique vision. While Yoakum likely visited many of the sites depicted, first with the circus and later the army and merchant marines, it is the surreal quality of his renderings that suggests these drawings are more than meets the eye. Yoakums work has held sway over artists from the time it was first exhibited in Chicago in the late 60s, championed by the likes of Leon Golub, Ray Yoshida, Gladys Nilsson and more recently by a younger generation rediscovering these Midwestern pioneers, Robyn ONeil among them. ONeil was born in Nebraska and lived throughout the Mid-West. Introduced to Yoakums work at an early age, her bond extended beyond the drawings to the terrain that inspired them. Parallels in the work are striking though perhaps not surprising for those familiar with this bleak unpopulated countryside. Freighted with a pervasive sense of unrest, tension, the empty landscape lies in waiting. Both Yoakum and ONeil operate within the void to create a space of spirituality and humanity. Joseph Yoakum 1890-1972 a self-taught Black and Native American artist travelled the world in various occupations for the early part of his life. He did not start drawing until 1962, at age 76. His work is included in numerous museum collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago Fine Arts Museum, San Francisco The Menil, Houston Museum of American Folk Art, NYC National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C. Philadelphia Museum of Art among others. Robyn ONeil Omaha, Nebraska, 1977 lives and works in Los Angeles, California. ONeil has been honored with major solo exhibitions at the Des Moines Art Center the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art Winston-Salem, as well as numerous group exhibitions including the Whitney Biennial the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and Dargerism at The American Folk Art Museum. Her work can be found in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art Philadelphia Museum of Fine Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art among others. Gallery II will feature new work from sculptor Eric Fertman. Working in wood, Fertmans stylized creatures share a disturbing sense of the uncanny with both Yoakum and ONeil. Born in Boston, MA in 1974, Fertman lives and works in Brooklyn. He received a BFA from Cooper Union and has exhibited nationally, with solo shows at Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem The Kemper Museum in Kansas City, and a two-person presentation at Time Equities, Inc., NYC for The Art-in-Buildings Program as well as numerous group exhibitions. The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM. For additional information please contact Susan Inglett Gallery at info@Inglettgallery.com or 212 647 9111. The Gallery will be closed for the holiday beginning 23 December 2017 reopening 2 January 2018.

Aaron Nagel Cover
Jan 04, 2018 -- Jan 27, 2018
Lyons Wier Gallery is pleased to announce our latest exhibition, Cover, by Aaron Nagel. The show introduces us to the artists newest direction of combining figures with folds of fabric. Nagel states, As a figurative artist, I have always had a fractious relationship with clothing. My concern is with the body, with creating mood. Clothes always seemed like a needless complication - and I know nothing about fashion. Somewhere along the way, though, I discovered that clothing, or more simply fabric, can have its own body and mood. It can cover, and it can interact.

Surface & Substance
Jan 02, 2018 -- Jan 27, 2018
The Painting Center is pleased to present Surface & Substance curated by Hester Simpson in the Main Gallery and Project Room. At once ordinary and intimate, the relationship that accrues between artists and their respective mediums evinces practical considerations relating to material properties, as well as the embodiment of distinct aesthetic purviews. With Surface & Substance, curator and painter Hester Simpson highlights this dynamic by focusing on ten artists for whom surfaces are responses to a world of shifting values and chaotic changes. Paul Behnke, Elisa DArrigo, Shane Drinkwater, Daniel G. Hill, Elizabeth Knowles, Mario Naves, Carol Salmanson, Mary Schiliro, Jane Schiowitz and Simpson herself alternately emphasize the rough-hewn and the seamless, the casual and the resolute. In doing so, they channel currents of the broader culture even as they hone their own peculiar visions. Simpson cites cultural observers who have linked changes in the surfaces of artworks to socio-political currents and cultural upheaval. The artist and historian Jonathan Janson writes of how a rough manner exposes the working processes to the spectator making him party to the artifice to which the illusion is achieved. More refined approaches to paint-handling endow illusion with an overriding clarity and precision. Both approaches can exist simultaneously and, as such, offer different interpretations of the world in which they were created. And so it is with the artists featured in Surface & Substance. They give body to the extraordinary and extraordinarily swift changes taking place in contemporary life.

Opening - Metallic Sparks: Special Group Show feat. JewelryArt
Dec 12, 2017 -- Jan 31, 2018
Metallic Sparks Exhibition Dates: December 12, 2017 January 31, 2018 Opening Reception: Thursday, December 14, 2017, 6-8pm Location: Onishi Gallery, 521 W. 26th Street, New York City Gallery Hours: Tuesday Saturday, 11am 6pm Onishi Gallery is proud to present Metallic Sparks, a special group show featuring metalwork, paintings, sculpture, and fine art jewelry, all uniquely enhanced with precious metals in their concept and design. This sparkling winter show highlights the work of Onishi Gallerys represented artists, Japanese talents across art media and time periods. Among the exhibiting artists are Shun Sudo, Yusuke Ochiai, Nagai Megumi, and NAOYA, each of whom incorporates metallic sparks into the concept as well as into the material of their pieces. Shun Sudo creates gold butterfly paintings using gold ink, a color that he associates with energy, and his many gold butterflies, in turn, create a kaleidoscope of positive energy. Yusuke Ochiai paints images of a fantastical figure name POI who spreads sparks of love throughout the world. Nagai Megumi masters the art of makie, a traditional Japanese lacquer painting technique that requires the sprinkling of gold and silver powder to decorate wood. And NAOYA sculpts small figurines who live in POLYKANTEN, an imaginary universe, blanketed by shining stars. In addition to these innovative artists, the exhibition showcases the metalwork art of Osumi Yukie, currently the only female Japanese Living National Treasure, among other groundbreaking metal artists working in silver, gold, and more. Further, on display will be cutting-edge examples of jewelry artwork, a creative genre of wearable metalwork. Japanese ceramic artist Tomoko Konno and French artist Tzuri Gueta collaborate to create a silicon necklace chain with a colored porcelain pendant that resembles an exotic plant or sea creature. Iconic silversmith Michael Izrael Galmer designs a silver purse that pushes the boundaries of form and function. Whether crafted for profound, playful, or practical purposes, the artworks in this exhibition sparkle with creativity. Each piece illustrates how strong yet elusive fine metals can be, enduring and beautiful, special and rare.

Winter Group Show II with Onishi Project
Jan 18, 2018 -- Jan 31, 2018
WINTER GROUP SHOW II Date: January 18 January 31, 2018 Opening: Thursday, January 18, 6-8pm Location: Onishi Gallery, 521 W 26th Street, New York, NY 10001 Gallery Hours: TuesdaySaturday, 11am-6pm The second show, Group II, will be hosted from January 18th 31st, 2018. This group features: Adama Coulibaly, Chris Namaizawa, Barbie Stattman, Hiroshi Aoki, James Watts, Silke Natschke and Hisato Fukumoto. Hiroshi Aoki born in 1976, grew up in Tottori, Japan. In 2002, he started as a freelance photographer. Aoki captures elements of human despair, dignity, suffering, hope, as well as subjects defining human rights and conflicts of recent history. He believes it is a necessity to tell the stories of those who think they are powerless and cannot. He believes that his work can change the world. His photos have been exhibited in various venues including museums, galleries and photo festivals. He continues to capture the stories that touch him. Chris Namaizawa lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. He graduated from Chuo University and earned his BA in Business Administration in 2006. He then launched his apparel brand Theater8 in the same year. He went on to exhibit Theater8 in Paris Collection in France in 2008 and started his career as an artist in 2012. Hisato Fukumoto was born in 1962 in Osaka, Japan. Hisato is an MFA graduate from Osaka University of Arts in 1985. Much of my inspiration for this expressive body of work comes from the beauty of nature. I continue to create abstract expressions based on my memories of impressive colors found in our living world. The pictures display geometric composition, and the presence of colors is emphasized more than that of shapes. The technique used to create these pictures involves drawing with Japanese ink and pastels on an acrylic undercoating. This method generates a sense of placing colors rather than merely painting them on. Adama Coulibaly born in 1995 in Katiola city, Cote DIvoire, now lives and works in New York City. The path out of darkness is light, and mine is lit with color. I find comfort in vibrancy, and I crave the control found in geometric order. The contrast within my art is representative of a split in my life difficult childhood years are the base layer of support for my more recent, positive experiences. The positive experiences only manifested after I found an outlet through creativity. My art is an autobiography. I hope it tells my story, but more importantly, that it brings a sense of calm to the viewer, like the process of creating it does for me. Barbie Stattman is an illustrator based in Seattle, Washington. Considerably inspired by animation, Stattman uses her line work and color to suggest movement in still images. She expresses her love of visual storytelling by marrying her fascination of folklore and surrealism into organic, decorative compositions. James Watts is a San Francisco-based sculptor, painter and photographer. Inspired by the mysteries of the internal and external landscapes within and around us. His award-winning work has been shown in over fifty solo and group shows nationally and abroad. Silke Natschke was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1971. She graduated from Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University in Frankfurt with a master in American Literature and Culture, Philosophy and Political Science. That still provides the inexhaustible source of her inspiration as an artist. Philosophical and literary themes are constantly to be found in her work and feed her curiosity needed to venture into experimenting with different materials.

Josepha Gasch-Muche: Shattered Matter
Jan 12, 2018 -- Feb 10, 2018
Informed by the Bauhaus and philosophically aligned with the German postwar avant-garde Zero Group, Josepha Gasch-Muche is an artist whose work embraces dichotomies: light is reflection, soft is hard, and immaterial is material. Irresistibly attractive yet undeniably threatening, her sculptures of shattered liquid crystal display glass transform what might have become a protective screen for a digital device into fractured razor-sharp elements of dizzyingly complex works.

''Solid Lattice'' encapsulates Jackie Winsor's ability to imbue raw materials such as wood, rope, and nails with willpower and elegance. Linnea Kniaz's ''Framework'' series, made of rounded wire cage-like forms, construction mesh, and paint, read more like line drawings or mechanisms for garnering sensation than traditional sculpture. Skeletal and serial, the structures illuminate the kind of playful inversions, repetitions, and rephrasings that lend Kniaz's vision its singular agility. Opening reception: Thu, Jan 11, 6-8pm.

Racers: Larry Poons and Frank Stella
Jan 11, 2018 -- Feb 10, 2018
We say that the worlds magnificence has been enriched by a new beauty the beauty of speed. A racing car whose hood is adorned with great pipes, like serpents of explosive breath is more beautiful than the Victory of Samothrace. - The Futurist Manifesto 1909 Loretta Howard Gallery is pleased to present Racers: Larry Poons and Frank Stella, opening January 11th 6:00-8:00 pm and running through February 10th, 2017. Long time friends, Larry Poons and Frank Stella met when they were both showing at the Leo Castelli gallery in the 1960s. Their close relationship is built on mutual respect and a shared sensibility that includes risk taking and intuition. This exhibition pairs the two artists for the first time and investigates their shared passions. For Larry Poons, motorcycle racing has been a serious avocation for decades. At 80 years old, he is still on the circuit and tinkering with his single cylinder Ducati Mark 3 bike. Frank Stella toured F1 Grand Prix races and owns a beautiful Indy racecar that is parked in his studio. Stella was inspired to create his Circuit paintings as a result of all the racetracks he has visited. Stellas red F1 racecar and Poons vintage Italian motorcycle are indeed beautiful objects but more significantly involve speed and risk. To race is to be a daredevil and push the boundaries of the ordinary it also relies on intuitionqualities that these two artists have employed in their painting practice many times over. Their shared interest in nonconformity also runs deep. Both artists thrill in breaking the limits of speed as well as conventions in painting. The characterological impulse to race is more than an interest in the craft of driving it is also experiential and intense.

Paul Henry Ramirez: Fun in the Color
Jan 06, 2018 -- Feb 10, 2018
Paul Henry Ramirez Fun in the Color January 6 - February 10, 2018 Reception: Saturday, January 6, 4-6pm RYAN LEE is pleased to present Fun in the Color, an exhibition of new paintings, drawings and sculpture by Paul Henry Ramirez. Fun in the Color continues Ramirezs exploration of corporeal forms and processes via biogeomorphic abstractiona term he coined to describe his particular mix of hard-edged and figurative abstraction. Ramirez composes his immersive installations as he would a painting, using architecture and color to guide the viewer through space. The exhibition begins with an explosion of color produced by Ramirezs ebullient clusters of nearly 100 PaintPour paintings. Ranging in size from 8 to 40 inches in diameter, these convex round canvases present slick rings of saturated color that appear to be poured one into the next. While each is a discrete object, recalling the cellular, ocular or mammary, together they form radiating constellations that suggest the full range of infinitude from the microscopic to the galactic. The PaintPour has been an essential component of Ramirezs installations since it was introduced as part of the solo exhibition Space Addiction at the Whitney Museum at Phillip Morris in 2002. In his first site-specific installation at RYAN LEE, Ramirez combines his PaintPours with a 24-by-10-foot black and green mural. The bold, minimal wall painting evokes playful figural forms that seem to simultaneously caress and disperse the circular paintings. A second gallery space is dedicated to a dialogic installation of black and white drawings and sculpture. Ramirezs rich, velvety, black line drawings present linear looping shapes punctuated by round nodules, mimicking the formal vocabulary of the ceramic sculptures they are paired with. Though hard and solid, Ramirezs unglazed bisque-fired clay sculptures provide a soft, fleshy counterpart to the meandering yet graphic works on paper. Both series emerge organically, through a process of automatic drawing or sculpting each is a direct product of the artists hand realized without prior planning or sketching. Like the biological systems they reference, Ramirezs work across media remains interconnected through its fluidity and dynamism. Each component offers a complementary exploration of dimensionality, sensuality, form and space, while maintaining a spirit of playful provocation. Fun in the Color provides a respite from the cold uncertainty of both the current seasonal and political climates, offering a pulsating escape into exuberance, sensation and hue.

The Wasp in the Garden
Jan 04, 2018 -- Feb 10, 2018
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Wasp in the Garden, Marilla Palmers third solo show with the gallery. There is an inextricable connection between nature and the work of Marilla Palmer in inspiration, process, and concept. Her mixed media pieces blur the distinction between the organic and artifice, using dried foliage and scavenged detritus alongside synthetic materials to enrich rendered paintings of branches and flowers. In Palmers studio, leaves and petals that have been gathered from her garden are pressed, wings are collected from dead insects, and mushrooms are gathered to make spore prints. These elements sneak into the work among drawn shadows of branches and watercolor florals, often nearly undetectable until after careful inspection. Then, Palmer brings a touch of glamour with lush fabrics, sequins, and glitter, adding a celebratory level of additional beauty. This juxtaposition is inspired by the nature paintings of the Rinpa school of the Edo period in Japan, particularly Sakai Hoitsus byobu paintings that combine botanical renderings with stylized abstracted rivers. Palmers latest work shows even more of an homage to the tradition, with pieces that show her plants grounded by their surroundings like a sparkling river, or on display in a vase. These vase paintings are also a nod to ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement that favors minimal shapes, lines, and forms and emphasizes a delicate balance of the elements. Also included in the show are sculptures created from wasp nests, mirroring Palmers belief that wasps are the artists of the insect world. Considering their nests site specific architectural sculptures with chiaroscuro swirling patterns, she uses their abandoned creations as raw material to mold around mannequins, resulting in surreal human forms. Marilla Palmer lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and has shown extensively throughout the United States. Her work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Carlsbad Museum and Art Center, and MoMA PS1, among other galleries and institutions. She received her B.F.A from the Philadelphia College of Art.

The Hot House
Jan 04, 2018 -- Feb 10, 2018
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Hot House, a group show curated by Marilla Palmer. Marilla Palmer has curated The Hot House in conjunction with her show, The Wasp in the Garden. Complementing her exhibition of mixed media botanical works, this group of artists represents a range of ways art is used to study, celebrate, and engage with nature. Not only are they inspired by nature as a whole, specific elements of nature are brought into their studios to be photographed, rendered, or used as raw materials. This intimacy, admiration, and protectiveness of these pieces of nature is reflected in the work, whether through traditional drawings or contemporary abstraction. These works are exemplary of the shift in focus from the paintings of the Hudson River School that revered nature as sublime to humankinds modern combative relationship with it. We are a threat, and nature as we know it is unsustainable. Botanical art has always recognized the ephemerality of the natural world, but now it has the emotional weight of investigating our role in that risk, and our responsibility to the natural world of protecting it. Representing nature in art may be the only way to save it. LC Armstrong paints imaginary landscapes with brilliant colors and shifts of scale, giving them a Surrealist atmosphere. Flowers in the foreground loom over magical realist scenes, glowing with an inherent luminosity built up with her layers of paint. Susanna Bauer works with found natural objects and embellishes them with crochet. There is a tension of fragility and strength in her sculptural pieces the piercing of a brittle leaf threatens it, yet it becomes both strengthened by the final construction and elevated beyond its initial state of overlooked decay. Blond Jenny explores an intimate, even erotic, relationship to nature in her decoupage using organic materials. While florals have long been a stand-in for sexuality, her work is more explicit in its imagery. Katie DeGroot strives to represent trees as they are how they grow to survive and adapt to their given environment, producing contorted abstract limbs rather than how they are typically depicted in their idealized symmetrical forms. While her paintings are grounded by observation, she lends her own interpretation of their personality by imbuing them with abstracted details. Beverley Duncan s traditional, nearly scientific, botanical drawings represent her observations of the flora and fauna in her immediate surroundings. Each piece is rooted in a specific time and place and celebrates the interconnectedness of the natural world. Alexis Rockman paints future landscapes that depict the threat of climate change and genetic engineering, should they be allowed to continue unimpeded. He considers his work to be Pop Art, but with natural history as his iconography. Katia Santibanezs geometric abstraction is inspired by the fundamental elements of nature, as well as its connections to the complementary worlds of architecture and cityscapes. Organized by grids, her paintings incorporate ideas of order and power, structure and balance, chaos and control. Fred Tomaselli creates mesmerizing patterns meticulously crafted from organic matter, pharmaceuticals, street drugs, printed materials, and hand-painted elements suspended in layers of resin. While calling to mind ancient natural artifacts trapped in amber, the hallucinatory aspect of his imagery grounds his pieces in a contemporary world. Esther Traugot calls her hand-crocheted coverings of natural objects bandages or cozies because, while they obscure the object itself, they are also an attempt to preserve nature and prevent its decay. They add a sense of humanity to the objects, and bridges the gap between nature and artifice. Denise Walser-Kolars watercolor paintings savor the minute details of each botanical specimen they portray. Attention paid to the subtle nuance of color relishes in the natural beauty around us. Natalie Colette Woods piece from her installation, Swallowed By Nature, examines the relationships between home, nature, and urban environments. The foundation of her sculptures are found objects that are then overcome by natural materials like moss, succulents, and air plants to show nature reclaiming the manmade world.

Nicole Charbonnet: Paint it Black
Jan 11, 2018 -- Feb 17, 2018
Winston Wachter Fine Art, New York, is delighted to announce its seventh solo exhibition with New Orleans-based artist Nicole Charbonnet. Paint it Black features a series of largely monochromatic paintings in which Charbonnet layers collage, paint, paste, plaster, and other materials in her paintings that can take years to construct. Charbonnet continues to explore themes of memory and history through layered paintings based on familiar images. These layers both obscure and highlight the forms in her work, evoking a sense of mystery and discovery, like exploring an archaeological ruin. Previous series have focused on iconic imagery in art and pop culture. In Paint it Black, Charbonnet often uses decorative designs floral motifs and geometric patterns that might be found in old wallpapers or home dcor. Others appear more automatic in nature, capturing the frenetic energy of abstract expressionism within the layers of paint. The central concept to Charbonnets work is the way in which memory and familiar images shape what we see, so that each individual sees and interprets the world differently. These black and gray works reflect on a recent discovery revealing text beneath the layers of paint in Kazimir Malevichs Black Square. In one work, written text appears, almost illegible. In others, a layer of black paint appears to be cracking, revealing a lighter, fresher color below. The limited, dark palette, and the obscuring of language and truth also reflect Charbonnets views on the current political climate in America. Ultimately, however, the works in Paint it Black are a materialization of the silent experiences of perception, cognition and memory.

Meta-smith: Trends in 3D Printed Jewelry
Jan 18, 2018 -- Feb 18, 2018
The jewelry presented in Meta-smith aims to show that digital processes have become another, and equally important, tool on the jewelers bench. Each piece is a product of many hours of thoughtful design and production, which often involves careful hand manipulation as it does the click of the mouse. Works on view will be made from a combination of technologies such as additive Rapid Prototyping processes and the subtractive processes of Computer-Aided Machining including 3D color printing, Fused Deposition Modelling, laser cutting and engraving, and the use of a 3D doodle pen. The exhibition will feature the work of Emily Cobb, Joshua DeMonte, Arthur Hash, Matthew Hollern, Nicole Jacquard, Svenja John, Phil Renato, Caitlin Skelcey, and Rebecca Strzelec. Meta-smith is co-curated by Bella Neyman, Director, Gallery of ReinsteinRoss, and designer Douglas Bucci.

Brian Tolle: Bent
Jan 11, 2018 -- Feb 24, 2018
C24 Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of sculptures by Brian Tolle marking his inaugural exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition brings together Tolles iconic public work, Eureka, on view for the first time in the United States and in a gallery setting, paired with his Levittown sculptures. Bent will be on view from January 11 through February 24, 2018 at 560 West 24th Street, with an opening reception on Thursday, January 11 from 6 8 pm. A highlight of the exhibition is the monumental installation Eureka. At approximately 36 feet high, when standing, the sculpture is a 3D rendering of the faade of a 17th-century Flemish canal house as it might exist in wave form. Thus, it becomes an uncanny reflection of the kinetic water below it. Originally commissioned by curator Jan Hoet for his landmark exhibition Over the Edges 2000, as a site-specific public installation in Ghent, Belgium, the sculpture is re-contextualized in the gallery space. Lying flat on the gallerys atrium floor Eureka confronts notions of place and process thereby questioning the function of art in public spaces versus art in specific institutions. Drawing ideas from a broad-based conceptual analysis, Tolle creates a dialogue between the contemporary and the historical and blurs the border between architecture and its evolving environment. A keen observer of domestic life and identity, Tolle furthers his interest of politics of place in his Levittown sculptures. The sculptures are inspired by the planned housing community, Levittown: the historic town in Long Island, NY, which became the archetype of American suburban life in the early 1950s. Each of Tolles eleven sculptures is a precise scaled model of an original Levittown home -- cast from the same mold varying only in color and displaying the architectural details of the original structures. The sculptural houses themselves resemble deflated or melting membranes, and are supported by various appropriated mementos of suburban life - found toys, tire swing, shopping cart, a plastic nativity set, and a recliner. These iconographic items rest underneath and inside silicone rubber skins of the houses, emphasizing a dialogue between sites and domestic artifacts. As the title of the exhibition suggests, the artworks presented in Bent provoke a re-reading, or discord between reality and fiction. The formal play that Tolle visually articulates between shapes and textures, private and public spaces presents a challenge to standard architectural, as well as behavioral conventions and norms. Brian Tolles work has been exhibited in the Whitney Biennial, Liverpool Biennial at the Tate Modern, Kunsthalle Bern, Switzerland, the S.M.A.K. in Ghent, Belgium, Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati the Queens Museum of Art, New York, Havana Biennial, Cuba, the Invitational Exhibition at the American Academy of Arts and numerous other institutions. His public works include Irish Hunger Memorial 2002, Battery Park City, NYC, NY a one-half acre sculpture on the Hudson River, reshaping the landscape with a full-scale replica of a hillside Irish farm desiccated by the potato famine. Most recently he completed a public artwork in Brooklyn, NY titled Pageant, 2017 and Outflow 2015, Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Other notable public works are Simnai Dirdro Twisted Chimney 2010, Caerphilly, Wales, UK, Remembering Walter H. Dubner 2010, Los Angeles, CA., and Stronghold 2007, University of Washington, Seattle, WA. He is the recipient of awards from the Irish American Historical Society, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, and the Design Commission of the City of New York.

Gil Batle: Re-Formed
Jan 19, 2018 -- Feb 24, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION AND ANNUAL WINTER PARTY: January 19, 6:30-9pm Gil Batles ostrich egg, bas-relief carvings are striking visual chronicles of the American penal system from the inmates perspective. Born and raised in San Francisco to Filipino parents, Batle spent over 20 years in and out of California prisons for fraud and forgery. To rebuild his life as a free man, he moved to a small island in the Philippines, where he honed his innate drawing abilities through the unlikely medium of carved ostrich egg shellseach with an architecture of pictorial panels supported and separated by a fine lattice of chain-link fencing, razor-wire, or hand-cuffs. The artists new hyper-detailed, surreal playing card drawings open up new territory in an already remarkable oeuvre. Batles work and story have been featured in CBS News, The New York Times, The Paris Review, and Slate, among many others. Re-Formed is the artists second one-person show at Ricco/ Maresca Gallery.

Sophie Bouvier Auslnder
Jan 18, 2018 -- Mar 10, 2018
Davidson Contemporary is pleased to present Avalanche, an exhibition by Swiss artist Sophie Bouvier Auslnder. In this recent series, Bouvier Auslnder paintings use roadmaps opened and unfolded as surfaces which are then covered in bees wax and monochrome gouache in turn that medium is etched into and scratched away to create a polychrome finished work. Here paper maps are pointed to as fixed worldviews and the series reflect on the construction of the world. The folds of the map are visible through the gouache, but the maps themselves offer up only a hint of their original purpose their usefulness is covered up and only partially revealed, leaving the viewer to yearn for more information. That obfuscation of information is a key to Bouvier Auslnders Avalanche series. The avalanche is a violent and destructive force that erases the relief and its landscape by blanketing it fully as it both covers and tears away. The covering of the roads and landmarks renders the map useless, except as a foundation. Specific details become irrelevant, just as the artists handmade details become paramount. Fragments and peeks of the original intent are partially visible but, once isolated, increase in importance as a way to reference a bygone world, providing building blocks and raw materials for a new universe. Sophie Bouvier Auslnder has studied at the Ecole cantonale dart de Lausanne, Switzerland, the Ecole nationale suprieure darts visuels de la Cambre, Belgium, University of Arts, London, and is currently working towards her Ph.D from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. This is her first show with Davidson Contemporary, and her first show in the US. She lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Gamelatron: Sonic Kinetic Sculptures
Jan 19, 2018 -- Apr 08, 2018
Crossing Collective is pleased to announce an exhibition by renowned American artist Aaron Taylor Kuffner. New York based conceptual artist Aaron Taylor Kuffner studied and submerged himself into the art of traditional Indonesian gamelan musical instruments during his time living in Java and Bali. Kuffner preserves and reinterprets this ancient instrument by fabricating the gamelans, and then retrofitting them with mechanical mallets that are connected to a self-built computer network that transcribe his compositions. His site-specific sonic kinetic sculptures are hand fabricated using ancient Indonesian forging techniques, and finished with traditional bronze, brass, iron instruments and robotic technology. Kuffner is a trained painter and metal sculptor, a former street artist, theatre director, international DJ and music producer. Kuffner lived and studied at the Institut Seni Inodenesia Yogyakarta, where he embraced the traditions of both the gamelan and village life. Dedicated to expanding the legacy and creative cultural power of gamelan through innovation, Kuffners viscerally powerful installation, site-specific performances have stood alone both as art works and mechanisms that tell us a story of globalization and modernization. The exhibition Gamelatron: Sonic Kinetic Sculptures, curated by Crossing Collective Executive Director Elise M. Saab, is Kuffners first at Crossing Collective, and explores a dialogue with the emerging field of robotics in which these sonic sculptures expose us to the nature of resonance and its effect on the psyche. Each Gamelatron is its own orchestra, and draws upon Indonesias thousand-year-old tradition of gamelan ensembles. These handcrafted, masterfully-tuned orchestras of vibraphones, drums, chimes, bells, and resonating bronze gongs played by robotic mallets are installed to immerse the observer in living kinetic sculptures. Compositions range from solitary reverberations of massive gongs and singing chimes to full ritual or storytelling orchestrations. The exhibition includes over thirteen different types of Gamelatrons, including six new works by Kuffner that have never been seen before. Of these new works is a selection of sculptures from Kuffners Single Tone Mindfulness series including his newest, 83hz 10 times to the heart. In this piece, the artwork focuses on a single resonance from an acoustic source and is named for the size of the wave lengths the source produces recorded in Hertz. Additional new works such as Cakrawala Horizon and Body Phones focus on a multiple resonance from an acoustic source. Body Phones reflects two life size gongs which Kuffner states, were created to experience the physical power of being inside a base bin and being able to feel the wave forms to remind people that sound is a physical force. Cakrawala uses six small horizontal kettle gongs and one large gong to play two notes in three different pitch registers. The artwork includes LED pucks under each gong that glow as the notes in each composition are played. The exhibition will run through April 8th, 2018 with several events including artist talks and sound and meditation workshops. Users around the world will have the opportunity to view the exhibition and meditate through Virtual Reality VR technology sponsored by Google and StoryUp, a media company specializing in data-driven VR escapes for areas of acute stress. Aaron Taylor Kuffner was born 1974 in New York, New York, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Kuffner has performed and exhibited work more than 400 times in 22 countries in the last eighteen years. His recent installations have been exhibited by the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, California 2017 the Drawing Center, New York 2016 56th Venice Biennale at the Palazzo Grimani Museum Venice 2015 The Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C. 2013 and The Clocktower Gallery, New York 2012. He also has received grants, in-kind supports and awards from various institutions including the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts The New York Council for the Arts Scope Arts Artist Wanted Techshop The Indonesian Foreign Ministry The Dharmasiswa Scholarship The Berlin Arts Council The European Commission I-D Media Berlin The Black Rocks Arts Foundation The James F. Robison Foundation The Soros Foundation Swiss Air The Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Kuffner has also been commissioned by the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian Institute to install a new artwork opening to the public in March 2018.

Mari Lyons: Memorial Exhibition
Jan 30, 2018 -- Feb 24, 2018
What I want most for my paintings, Mari said, is vitality--and she found in the electric, ever-changing scene below her studio the perfect cognate for her vision. For forty years she worked in a third-floor space on the corner of Broadway and 80th Street, above the old H&H Bagel Shop, across from Zabars. She painted the still life, studio interior, figure, and much else, but remained captivated by and regularly drew from the vital street below--the endless swarm of vehicles and people, the changing shops and architecture, the passing seasons. She found the remarkable richness of the scene inexhaustible. She first exhibited her cityscapes in the late 1980s, and then several times later, and in a two-person exhibition with John Dubrow at Rider University, curated by Deborah Rosenthal. The series was praised in Forbes FYI, and by Lance Esplund, David Cohen, John Seed, and Jed Perl. The Museum of the City of New York acquired a large street scene and recently the New York State Museum in Albany acquired six other cities. These sprawling, brushy compositions are perhaps Maris most exciting and successful series--and register the full force of her exuberant love of color and motion and her intrepid commitment to a painterly figuration counter to so much recent conceptual painting.

BENJAMIN DEGEN: Last Refuge
Feb 02, 2018 -- Mar 10, 2018
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Last Refuge, an exhibition of new paintings by gallery artist Benjamin Degen from 2 February to 10 March 2018. A reception for the artist will be held on Friday 2 February from 6 to 8 PM. Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel -Samuel Johnson, 1775 Brothers a hundred thousand perils you have passed and reached the West. For us, so little time remains to keep the vigil of our living sense. Do not deny your will to win experience, behind the sun, of worlds where no man dwells. Hold clear in thought your seed and origin. You were not made to live as mindless brutes, but go in search of virtue and true knowledge -Ulysses in Dantes Inferno Canto XXVI The master of a ship at sea which is in a position to be able to provide assistance on receiving a signal from any source that persons are in distress at sea, is bound to proceed with all speed to their assistance. -International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea SOLAS Chapter V, regulation 33 1 I take refuge in the buddha. I take refuge in the dharma. I take refuge in the sangha. -The Three Refuges of Buddhist faith We are all immigrants. To be human is to move. We had to move to get here. We have to move to keep going. We must move to become who we will be. We are all moving from here to there. We are a sea of humanity that flows as a contiguous mass in waves and tides. We flow across the entire earth: up to the tops of mountains we fill the valleys we wash onto the shores of the most remote islands. The salty blood within us, and our life itself, flows as a current in one unending ocean that cannot be confined by geography or boundary. My story of movement is not my own, and it is not only the story of my family moving before me, but it is also the story of all of the people who moved with them. It is a story of the refuge that was given to us and the refuge that we gave. Each of our lives is a story of compassion and bravery- a story of the people who worked to rescue and refuge and to free each other. Freedom cannot be experienced individually it must be achieved and experienced collectively. We must move together. I painted these paintings in celebration of human movement. I painted these paintings in a moment of great division. But this is also a moment where we are empowered to make a choice: As a species, we can move together toward collective liberation, or move against each other on a path towards self-annihilation. Little bit from you / And a little bit from me / Simple as it gets / We set each other free. -Jeff Tweedy/Mavis Staples Little Bit Anti Records 2017 The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

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!

Destroyed House by Marjan Teeuwen
Feb 08, 2018 -- Apr 14, 2018
Bruce Silverstein is delighted to announce the representation of Dutch contemporary artist, Marjan Teeuwen. Her first gallery exhibition outside of Europe, Destroyed House will open in February 2018. In her aptly titled body of work, Destroyed House, Teeuwen reclaims the wreckage of abandoned buildings assembling each fragment in painstakingly detailed installations, set within the original structures. These temporary living artworks are present for their surrounding community to experience, but they ultimately exist only through the carefully composed photographic images which Teeuwen captures for posterity with her large-format camera. Her images illuminate the precarious balance of the power of destruction with the constructive implications of order and function.

Martina Nehrling, Saudade
Feb 15, 2018 -- Mar 24, 2018
Martina Nehrlings paintings are built with individual staccato brushstrokes of lush, bright colors in a palette that feels simultaneously logical and discordant. She creates a rhythm to her work with this palette that so closely suggests but does not complete a full spectrum, each stroke creating a vibrational tension with the one next to it. She explores the formal complexity of color, and reflects its emotional depths and limitless potential with the tactile physicality of her paint.

Joanne Freeman, My Generation
Feb 15, 2018 -- Mar 24, 2018
Joanne Freeman has been feeling nostalgic. Noticing the parallels between the current political climate and the nature of the 1960s and 70s when she grew up, she has been interrogating the aesthetics and societal attitudes of that era in her latest work. Her reductive compositions and pure color mimic the low-tech graphics utilized in mid-century media, and allude to color field paintings of the 1960s. Masking her forms out beforehand gives her paintings a stencil-like feel, a nod to the printmaking techniques that were also popular at the time, as well as Matisses cut outs.

Tim Kennedy/ S.R.A.
Feb 27, 2018 -- Mar 24, 2018
S.R.A. is the abbreviation for State Recreation Area and is also the title of a solo exhibition of paintings by Tim Kennedy that will be held at First Street Gallery from February 27 to March 24, 2018. This is Mr. Kennedys eighth solo exhibition at First Street Gallery. In this exhibition, Mr. Kennedy finds inspiration in common public settings and the people that inhabit them in and around Bloomington, Indiana, a Midwestern college town. Since Manets Luncheon on the Grass, representations of people and their pursuit of leisure activities have held up a mirror to contemporary notions of identity, class and the human relationship to nature. Seen through Mr. Kennedys eyes, a volleyball game in a city park, a couple canoeing and a fisherman beside a boat are all fodder for large scale figure compositions. Kennedy has also continued to explore portraiture by focusing on neighbors and colleagues in romantic pairs or family groups. Painted from life, these portraits emphasize the psychology of the sitters by recording their interaction with their surroundings and, more subtly, with one another. These are time-intensive, reciprocal works that demand the artists and sitters continual collaboration. We may not know the subjects personally, but they are people we immediately recognize. Part of the pleasure afforded by the portraits is recognition of physical resemblances between family members, emotional connection between romantic partners and hints of character and psychology as revealed through posture and body language. Tim Kennedys paintings fall solidly into the tradition of painterly American realism that prizes the particular and the empirical. The paintings allow the viewer to examine a sharply experienced, yet ordinary event. The unspoken subject at the center of the paintings is the connection between people and the connection of people to their surroundings, whether people are the primary subject or whether the subject consists of landscape views, objects or interiors. The paintings celebrate life as it is experienced through the senses. Mr. Kennedys use of oil paint favors visceral color and the undisguised presence of the artists hand. It is work on a human scale that manifests a direct encounter with perceptual experience, and conveys an atmosphere filled with light and air. Examples of Mr. Kennedys work may be found at timkennedypaintings.com.
