Marc Yankus | New York Unseen
Oct 03, 2019 -- Nov 16, 2019
ClampArt is pleased to announce “New York Unseen”—an exhibition of photographs by artist Marc Yankus. This is the artist’s sixth solo show at the gallery. Marc Yankus’s newest photographs continue his investigation of bustling New York City, but without the noise, traffic, and people—an unseen New York. The artist expertly eliminates extraneous movement and distractions, and distills his images down to an essence—the majesty of more than a century of architecture. The work from the past few years still includes a selection of lesser-known, more nondescript buildings, but Yankus now incorporates many of the city’s iconic structures as well, including a handful of the world’s most celebrated museums (several in panoramic format). Another departure from previous work is dramatic, oblique, aerial perspectives, providing views of famous buildings and familiar city streets from a decidedly unfamiliar vantage point. The exhibition at ClampArt coincides with a solo show of Marc Yankus’s work at Grand Central Terminal. Organized by MTA Arts and Design, the exhibition is titled "Landmark City," and will be on display in the Dining Concourse through July 2020. | Opening reception: Thursday, October 3, 2019 – 6:00-8:00 p.m. – ClampArt, 247 West 29th Street, Ground Floor, New York, NY 10001

Robert C. Jackson : Offbeat
Oct 24, 2019 -- Nov 16, 2019
In a series of neatly arranged paintings, Robert C. Jackson appropriates American advertising culture to explore how objects, many known for their brand identity, contribute to the creation of new associations. In numerous paintings a set of branded domestic items, such as Oreo cookies, Tonka trucks, or rubber figurines like the Trix Rabbit, are placed in unusual or “offbeat” compositions. These lighthearted tableaus coalesce with Jackson’s subtly painted environments that play on nostalgia and current topics. Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 24, 6-8pm.

Sep 12, 2019 -- Nov 16, 2019
Juliao Sarmento’s work utilizes a variety of media, including film, video, sound, painting, sculpture and installations. His subject matter, often influenced by film and literature, circulates around issues of interpersonal relationships and tackles themes such as psychological interaction, sensuality, voyeurism and transgression.

Vik Muniz : Pictures of Paint
Oct 10, 2019 -- Nov 16, 2019
Vik Muniz subtracts the material element that differentiates a painting from a photograph and re-presents it, objectified by a layered image. Though these works utilize painting in both their process and concept, they are not paintings—yet as photographic images of works that exist in an autonomous, physical form, they are not abstractions either.

Oct 17, 2019 -- Nov 16, 2019

Betwixt and Between
Sep 12, 2019 -- Nov 16, 2019
Brexit. Global Warming. Immigration. Identity. Fake News …These are among the controversial issues today that exemplify the idea of being betwixt and between - for many, liberating concepts; for others, deeply troubling, perhaps life threatening concepts. Betwixt and Between featurES over 40 photographs by forty artists, reflects on how comfortable photography has been with the notion of capturing a moment when results are not certain, intentions not clearly established, and reality subverted.

John Lee: Arm's Length Intimacy
Oct 29, 2019 -- Nov 23, 2019
The paintings in this show represent a range of work that I have created since moving into my current studio in the summer of 2014. The work is comprised of Still Life Paintings, Interior Landscapes, and Self Portraits. What ties these various, yet interrelated, sorts of paintings together for me is the fact that they all build upon my organic painterly impulses. I am instinctively drawn to certain visual movements and moments. For one, I love neutral colors that have an ambiguous undercurrent of saturation: The color of an old file cabinet, the warm and cool patina in the pages of aged paperbacks, the specific color fluctuations that I see in bricks, candles, sponges, cardboard, flesh, stainless steel, dulI white objects, or matte wooden surfaces. Each of my paintings stands as an ‘engagement’ with each particular subject or observed viewpoint. I strive to make a painting that feels sincere and complete. Given the open-ended nature of color perception, I am constantly repainting the paintings, all in an attempt to make each passage coherent in regards to the range and relationships of the colors. This attention to coherency relates to not only the color relationships but also to the edges that connect and separate each individual mark. There is an anxiety behind this working process that I believe is part of the expressive quality of the work. The title of the show, “Arm’s Length Intimacy”, relates to certain visual tensions that involve such distinctions as color, space, gravity, or weight. My intimate appreciation of a mood or color involves the need, for me, of placing or pushing that color-moment back into a particular space. While it is my desire to express the feeling of this or that perceived color, however, I need to push and place that perceived color into a felt space. Additionally, I have also recently realized that my work is, I believe, best appreciated at ‘arm’s length’. That is, one should stand about two or three feet from the painting in order to see the, as I see them, intimate moments that I strive to compose in the paintings.

Claire McConaughy: Not So Far Away
Oct 29, 2019 -- Nov 23, 2019
The Painting Center is very excited for the first solo exhibition at the gallery by Claire McConaughy entitled Not So Far Away: Paintings by Claire McConaughy, October 29 to November 23, 2019. McConaughy will be present for the reception on Friday, November 1, from 6 to 8pm. Catalogue available with an essay by Barbara O’Brien, independent curator and critic, and former Executive Director of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art. McConaughy’s exhibit features 10 paintings of trees within a landscape that evoke a mood of timelessness, while the ephemeral light captured by McConaughy infuses the paintings with a sense of observed reality to a time of day or season. Barbara O’Brien, in her catalog essay, Feeling Tone: Claire McConaughy’s Landscapes, writes “The memory of the experience—place, stance, time of day, combined with the natural phenomena of the shifting light on the surface of the water and even the temperature of the air suggested by the quality of light—is described in the paintings without being reproduced, replicated, or illustrated. McConaughy’s paintings offer the opportunity to stand where she stood, see what she saw, and to understand that the translation of her experience—into paintings of great formal command and emotional depth—becomes our own.” Painting in her studio while referencing photographs she has taken, McConaughy’s subtle sense of space is a delicate construction of multiple distances within the painting itself, and also without. There is a delineation of foreground, midground and background that provides the viewer a specific location either directly adjacent to the landscape or just outside the frame where you can easily wander into the scene. The size of the paintings from small and intimate to referencing a human scale and drama, also invites one into over an open-ended conversation with painting, and by extension the artist, leaving the narrative to be discovered McConaughy’s striking visual form of intensely gestural blunt brushstrokes loaded with pigments of striking yellows, hot pinks and lush greens, are juxtaposed by gentle languid swaths of cool blues, creamy grays, and earthy browns. Claire McConaughy lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. McConaughy has had over 50 solo and group exhibitions at distinguished galleries such as The Drawing Center, Art Resources Transfer, Boston Center for the Arts, Lichtunfire, Jay Grimm Gallery, TZ Art & Company, and Drawing Rooms, in addition to being on the staff of the influential art journal, New Observations. Her work is in the collections of JP Morgan and Sony Music with media coverage including Artnet and the Boston Herald. She is the recipient of fellowships and residencies at the Santa Fe Art Institute, Ucross Foundation and a Mid-Atlantic/NEA Visual Arts Fellowship finalist. McConaughy received her MFA from Columbia University, NYC, and BFA from Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh.

Mona Brody: Distancing
Oct 29, 2019 -- Nov 23, 2019
The Painting Center is pleased to present, Distancing, a solo exhibition of paintings by Mona Brody in the Project Room. Shazzi Thomas, Director of the Painting Center curated the work from Brody’s most recent paintings. Distancing is about the unseen workings of middle space and time. The intentional quality of the sublime emerges at the heart of Brody’s work. Metaphoric possibilities that result from Brody’s collection and observation of evocative objects, the space of the canvas, and the interaction of materials and application reveal the strange and uncanny place within the familiar. Her personal experience, writings, and biography shape the nature of the work, encouraging viewers to think about their own associations with themes of memory, personal histories, and time. Tom Wachunas, art critic and contributor to ARTWACH writes about Brody’s work, “In considering alchemy as it might be applied to making abstract imagery, think of it as the practice of reconciling dualities or opposites: temporality and timelessness; permanence and ephemerality; the apparent and the implied; the literal and the metaphorical. Brody’s paintings are on one level really about the paint and, paradoxically enough, the paint transcending its paint-ness in the same way poetry employs words.” Mona Brody has exhibited both in the United States and internationally. Her solo exhibitions include The Painting Center, New York, NY, The President’s Gallery, Pratt Institute of Art, Brooklyn, NY, Utica College, Utica, NY, Kent State University, North Canton, Ohio, the Montclair Art Museum Montclair, NJ, Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Newark, NJ. Nanjing College of Art, Nanjing, China, and Boleslawiec Art Museum, Boleslawiec, Poland. Public collections that own her work include The Museum of Modern Art Library, New York, The Montclair Art Museum, Montclair, NJ, The New Jersey State Museum, Trenton, NJ, Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper, Rutgers State University, New Brunswick, NJ. Boleslawiec Art Museum, Boleslawiec, Poland, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Sweet Briar, VA and the Zimmerli Art Museum, New Brunswick, NJ. Brody is a Professor of Art at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. Days/Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm Contact: Shazzi Thomas, Director: 212-343-1060 director@thepaintingcenter.org

HOPE GANGLOFF
Oct 24, 2019 -- Nov 30, 2019
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by HOPE GANGLOFF, from 24 October to 30 November 2019. Over the course of her two-decades-long practice, Gangloff has become closely identified with her bold-colored, graphic portraits of friends, family members, and the occasional stranger. Her eighth solo exhibition at the Gallery marks the artist’s first concentrated presentation of landscape painting. Begun during her eight-week residency at the MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire, earlier this year, the show will provide audiences with the opportunity to experience, in depth, yet another aspect of Gangloff’s practice. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday evening, 24 October from 6 to 8 PM. Gangloff will paint a mural on the Gallery’s street-facing wall Friday and Saturday, 25 and 26 October. A black and indigo Montana landscape, punctuated by neon pink and red stars and city lights; the weaving pink and green tentacles of fauna on the shores of Monterey, California; and, the lavender-hued Mount Monadnock, New Hampshire, at sunset. Operating as compositional vehicles for explorations of color theory, form and scale, these scenes proffer fragmented personal narratives, detailing the locations of some of Gangloff’s most poignant career and private moments. Birchwood trees, the snow-capped peak of Mount Monadnock and the century-old cabin in which the artist stayed for the duration of her residency at the MacDowell Colony populate several works from early 2019. Pastel, oceanic studies narrate the time Gangloff spent on the California coastline, painting the portrait of ocean conservationist Julie Packard for the National Portrait Gallery in 2018. While these works depict moments from the recent past, the ten-foot canvas of a twinkling Montana town at night, forged from an ink study created in 1998, marks her longstanding fascination with nature and place. Flora and fauna meanwhile abound in interior scenes of rural cabin and urban apartment life, projecting the viewer into a domestic world whose individual elements are surreally intimate while also familiar. What emerges is a new body of work that reveals Gangloff’s command of subject matter and her skill as a keen observer of both people and nature alike. Hope Gangloff was born in 1974 in Amityville, NY, and attended The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. There have been solo exhibitions of her work at the Cantor Arts Center, CA; the Broad Art Museum, MI; and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, CT. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.; the Broad Art Museum, MI; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, MO; the Cantor Arts Center, CA; and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Reviews of her work have appeared in Art in America, Last Magazine, Modern Painters, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Paris Review, Vice, and The Village Voice among others. Gangloff was awarded a MacDowell Colony Fellowship in 2019. The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

Ky Anderson : Careful Foresters
Oct 24, 2019 -- Nov 30, 2019
Ky Anderson’s paintings on canvas and paper are composed of layers of bold, linear forms. Channeling the primitive origins of drawing with a serene palette and simple shapes, she constructs compositions that are not quite symmetric, but beautifully balanced. Floating layers of color and texture evoke a sense of intuition and unplanned, instinctual mark making.

Karen Woods
Nov 05, 2019 -- Dec 07, 2019
For some time now I have chronicled my journey by painting what I experience while driving around the city. I paint—in the realist tradition—from photographs taken at intersections and on the road, when I’ve been struck by the beauty in the ordinariness of my commute. These images are the “lyrical suggestions” that compel me to paint, to communicate these transcendent experiences so clearly that others might in turn recognize this beauty in the course of their day. Opening Reception: Thu, Nov 7, 6-8pm.

Oct 30, 2019 -- Dec 14, 2019
Japan Is America is an exhibition exploring the complex artistic networks that informed avant-garde art in Japan and America between 1952 and 1985. Starting with the well-documented emergence of “American-Style Painting” that ran parallel to the Americanization of Japan in the 1950s, Japan Is America endeavors to illustrate the path and conditions from Japanese surrender in 1945 to that country's putative cultural take-over of the United States some forty years later. Artists: Yuji Agematsu, Ruth Asawa, James Lee Byars, John Cage, Joe Goode, Marcia Hafif, Noriyuki Haraguchi, Tatsuo Ikeda, Shigeo Ishii, Ishiuchi Miyako, Jasper Johns, Alison Knowles, Nobuaki Kojima, Tomio Miki, Sadamasa Motonaga, Hiroshi Nakamura, Natsuyuki Nakanishi, Senga Nengudi, Yoko Ono, Ken Price, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Richard Serra, Ushio Shinohara, Fujiko Shiraga, Kazuo Shiraga, Jiro Takamatsu, Anne Truitt, and Toshio Yoshida.

International Print Center New York is pleased to announce its first two-person exhibition, Paper Borders, which brings into dialogue the works of Emma Nishimura (b. 1982, Toronto) and Tahir Carl Karmali (b. 1987, Nairobi), artists who share a commitment to unearthing historical and ongoing stories of migration, trans-generational memory, and xenophobia. Using the materiality of print and handmade paper, the two- and three-dimensional works in this exhibition speak to cross-cultural and deeply embedded global struggles. Here, the precarity of paper becomes a metaphor for the precarity of place.

Space Poetry: The Action Paintings of Michael West
Nov 07, 2019 -- Dec 21, 2019
On November 7, Hollis Taggart will open a survey of Abstract Expressionist painter Michael West (1908-1991), marking the first solo presentation of the artist’s work since the gallery took on exclusive representation of her estate earlier this year. Michael West—born Corinne Michelle West—is recognized by art historians as a vocal and active participant in the development of Abstract Expressionism, bringing a highly developed personal philosophy and vision to her work. Despite her substantive participation in the dialogues and artistic innovations that shaped the movement, West is best remembered for her intense personal relationship with artist Arshile Gorky—her own narrative obscured by the sexism of the period and subsequent passage of time. Opening Reception: Nov 7, 6-8pm.

Sam Messenger - Verso
Nov 07, 2019 -- Dec 21, 2019
Davidson Gallery proudly presents Verso, a solo exhibition of new work by Sam Messenger. In this, Messenger’s seventh one-man show with Davidson, the artist eschews the predominately greyscale pen-and-ink drawings for which he is renowned in favor of acrylic paint and pigment on paper and fabric. In place of his usual generative mark-making, Messenger creates this new body of work in a wholly new method. He lays polythene sheeting down, manipulating it with creases and wrinkles before adding a layer of paint. He then places the paper face down on the pigment he has just added, allowing it to dry before peeling away the paper and laying it aside. This process is repeated, one color at a time, until the work is finished. In each case, Messenger can affect only a limited number of factors: the manipulation of the sheet, the color of the paint on it, and the drying time. After that, the only hand that he can have in the work is from the verso side. This back-to-front methodology draws on art historical styles and means of production, including Byzantine glass painting, European paper making, Tachisme, decollage, and even printmaking. Presented on both floors of Davidson Gallery, this new work is a definite departure for Messenger, but it is also clearly extant along the arc of his oeuvre, allowing elements of chance, nature, and randomness to help drive – or perhaps contend with – the artist’s intent. Verso is accompanied by a full catalogue of the exhibition with an introductory essay by Frances Jacobus-Parker

Meleko Mokgosi : Pan-African Pulp
Nov 01, 2019 -- Dec 21, 2019
Pan-African Pulp uses popular southern African pulp magazines or photo-novels to examine, broadly, the history of Pan-Africanism. Mokgosi has appropriated this trope and created new dialogue and plots within the existing imagery. By specifically focusing on Pan-Africanism, Meleko Mokgosi hopes to find meaningful ways of reconceptualizing the importance of a movement that sought to build alliances towards Black consciousness and foregrounding the rights and aspirations of Africans to self-determination and self-governance. Opening Reception: Fri, Nov 1, 6-8pm.

Gray Matters
Nov 14, 2019 -- Dec 21, 2019
Brian Cirmo Gray Matters November 14 – December 21, 2019. Opening Reception: Thursday, November 14th, 6 – 8 PM Artist will be in attendance Chelsea, New York: 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to announce Gray Matters, an exhibition of new paintings by Brian Cirmo. This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery and his first New York solo exhibition. Like a novelist working in paint, Brian Cirmo invites the viewer to witness his characters’ moments of tenderness and turmoil. Reading books or looking at photographs, or sitting with eyes closed, perhaps thinking or dreaming, the people in his interiors can be miles apart emotionally, but we still sense their need to be near each other. These large-scale paintings envelop the viewer in the visceral worlds Cirmo creates, while smaller scale portraits in the exhibition, set in snowy landscapes or on moon-lit beaches, offer moments of reflection. In Gray Matters, the color gray figures in many of the works, even those ablaze with luminous color, but Cirmo also asks viewers to think about the gray areas that we navigate in our relationships or in solitude. Brian Cirmo (b. 1977, Utica, NY) received his MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University at Albany, and his work has been exhibited in Boston, Sonoma, New Orleans, and Washington DC. His residencies include the Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency, Granville, NY; and Salem Art Works Residency, Salem, NY. Cirmo lives and works in Albany, NY, and is Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing at SUNY Onondaga, Syracuse, NY. For further information or to schedule an interview with the artist, please contact us at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel by e-mail at info@532gallery.com

Meleko Mokgosi : The social revolution of our time cannot take its poetry from the past but only from the poetry of the future.
Nov 01, 2019 -- Dec 21, 2019
The title of Mokgosi’s 20th Street installation, The social revolution of our time cannot take its poetry from the past but only from the poetry of the future., is taken from Karl Marx's The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte. This text points to the limits of revolutionary discourses and proposes that it is only through disavowing the past that revolutionary action can occur. Similar to this argument, this body of work argues both for a disavowal of past grand narratives as well as the recuperation of non-Western forms of knowledge that were not privileged to coexist with conventional or established discursive frameworks. Opening Reception: Fri, Nov 1, 6-8pm.

Magnificent Emeralds: Fura’s Tears
Sep 26, 2019 -- Dec 30, 2019
If art is an expression of beauty, then the exquisite minerals at the Wilensky gallery are the highest form of aesthetic that nature has to offer. This fall, set in their Chelsea gallery, Wilensky will exhibit the greatest collection of emerald mineral specimens ever assembled. This breathtaking exhibition will embrace the undeniable transformative power that emeralds hold on the human imagination. “Magnificent Emeralds: Fura’s Tears” will open on Thursday, September 26th and run through Monday, December 30th, 2019. “This exhibition is focused on natural emeralds, as found and preserved in specimen and crystal form. By bringing together many of the world’s finest known examples of natural emerald specimens, we can better understand all emerald specimens. Important emerald stones and jewelry can be found in every gem collection around the world. The same cannot be said about exceptional natural emerald specimens. We estimate that there are less than twenty-five in the world that would qualify. Of those twenty-five, half of them are here on exhibit,” says Stuart Wilensky, President of Wilensky. The significance of having half of the world’s finest known emerald specimens all in one place cannot be overstated. This has never happened in the history of mineral collecting. Wilensky invites the viewer to experience wonder and emotionally connect to the profoundly exquisite qualities of emerald specimens. Internationally renowned for building one-of-a-kind collections for many of the world’s most influential collectors, Wilensky is uniquely able to curate and elevate an emerald show of this caliber. Connecting to the mythological tale of Fura and Tena, from the now extinct Muzos indigenous people of the Colombian Andes, the exhibition narrates emeralds through their creation story, where the tears of Fura’s infidelity begot the beloved green rocks. The seductive connection between nature, beauty, legend and art are explored through the mesmerizing green of the specimens.

LINEAGE: Featuring MATT DEVINE, ANTHONY HUNTER, ADRIANA OLIVER
Nov 14, 2019 -- Dec 31, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: LINEAGE: Featuring MATT DEVINE, ANTHONY HUNTER, ADRIANA OLIVER WINTER 2019 Artists’ Reception: Thursday, November 14th, 2019 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by November 8th, 2019 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd Street | New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com LINEAGE JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, LINEAGE, an exhibition that focuses attention on the intersection of decorative and functional elements of contour and linear stylization. Addressing the fundamental component of the line within artistic composition, LINEAGE explores the possibilities of perspective, volume, and interaction of planes. Suggesting the line as both a fluid material and conceptual device, these artists highlight their ability to create works that uniquely define the space around them. Using divergent forms of display, artists Matt Devine, Anthony Hunter, and Adriana Oliver’s works compliment one another in color, form, and in their parallel explorations of linear gesture. Merging form and content, their linear constructions exemplify the expressive potential of line. Matt Devine’s sculptures explore lines as a pliable medium and point of departure. Emphasizing the use of line as multidimensional, Devine takes dissected pieces of sheet metal and transforms the industrial materials into organic patterns and shapes. As Devine works with aluminum, steel, and paint, he saves leftover pieces from earlier sculptures to generate the next step in his process, recycling and seamlessly transitioning to the next piece. His minimalist aesthetic and color palette serve to reinforce the strength of the forms, highlighting the inner balance and order within the works. Focusing on line to guide the compositions, Devine investigates the tensions of visual and psychological boundaries, as well the continuation of line through his fluid process. Anthony Hunter’s direct and physical engagement with his materials allows line and color to stand-alone and to function independently of form. Replete with lively and flickering lines, blobs, drips, and drizzles, Hunter creates a defined sense of movement and action. Infusing velocity and improvisation into the artistic process, the resulting linear marks tease the viewers’ eyes with their abrupt punctuations. Creating focal points, the line stylization reflects a tight rein, as he manages the flow with a practiced hand in his chosen, glossy oil-based medium. The contours of these areas, vividly contrasted against his other bold colors, look as much drawn as do the narrow, cursively shaped lines of paint. The resulting abstractions not only generate visual complexity, but the lilt of Hunter’s color and thrust of his line achieve pure graphic energy. With a sharp eye for shape and form, Adriana Oliver transforms familiar shapes into neutral forms open to interpretation. Challenging a traditional flat and rectangular format, Oliver blurs the lines between sculpture and painting. Pushing lines into a new, spatial realm, the cut-out shapes of her panels promote dimensionality while showcasing her beguiling use of color relationships. Working in a reductive palette, as well as simplified line-work, her imagery stands out with her minimalist approach to figuration. In her use of line, hue, intensity and value, the works attain depth and resonance, striking a perfect balance between message and form. These artists will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression.

The Timeless Place
Oct 31, 2019 -- Jan 04, 2020
The Timeless Place (October 31, 2019 - January 4, 2020) The three artists in this exhibition are travelers. Part of the power and joy of traveling is that it can be formless and depends on the creativity and resourcefulness of the traveler to mark whatever the journey’s boundaries may be. This exhibition presents three kind of travelers. None of them are tourists. One kind of travel manifests as personal observation of history as it is shaped by the passing of encountering local customs. This is a natural form of travel, a narrative lived by the traveler.  It can be limited to the place one is born.  In the case of Mohammed Babahoum (b. 1933) we get an insiders’ vision of a mystical people’s,  Babahoums’ people’s,  daily traditions, the Gnawa of Morocco, who are in transition between old and new.  Babahoum is the elder who is so part of his landscape that his drawings shimmer in their timelessness like dust specks in bright sun.  He travels through his own memories and sees and remembers everything in a narrative that is dreamlike and very real at the same time.  One can hear the silence of the desert broken by Gnawa trance music and camels grunting and the cries of the market women, or the desolate buzz of a single voracious fly. Another kind of travel is to go within oneself and abandon or abstract all references to the mundane world. Davood Koochaki (b. 1939) seems to draw almost Neolithic creatures from the cave walls of his imagination. His work begins and ends with each sensual gestural form created from thousands of pencil marks. The making of the drawing itself is an incantation. After a while one sees that in some of the drawings, as with Babahoum, he has managed to record not only visionary beings but also, with a deep dark humor, the human warmth and restless energy of the eternal family. His work is now represented in the Collection de L’Art Brut in Lausanne. Novadi Angkasapura’s travel is a complex one. Born in politically troubled Jayapura, Irian Jaya, in 1979, he migrated to Jakarta, Indonesia from the rich and deep cultural amalgam of his birthplace to a turbulent and varied mixture of faiths and acculturations and political struggles in his new home. His work is a powerful mix of observation, visions, dreams, and ethnic and spiritual references that come together in a mysterious poetic universality. His drawings are represented in the Collection de L’Art Brut in Lausanne. These artists all make work stemming from diverse motivations. While they sell their work to the public, they do not shape it to public tastes. The intentionality is, for each, singular and the styles are hard won and developed over time. “Outsider Art” and Art Brut are being expanded from within by the artmaking visionaries of the Non-Western world. Cavin-Morris has always been an advocate for this beautiful, intense, and real diversity. For additional information please contact info@cavinmorris.com or call us at 212-226-3768.

ON VIEW: November 19 - 23, 2019 FIRST LOOK & OPENING RECEPTION: November 19 at 5:30pm ANCIENT ROOTS, MODERN BRANCHES is a boutique gallery exhibit of artisanal jewelry in partnership with NYC Jewelry Week, which welcomes arts and culture enthusiasts who come together to explore the multifaceted jewelry industry. ANCIENT ROOTS, MODERN BRANCHES presents the work of three independent goldsmiths: Tess Sholom, Jorge Alva, and Aviva Shapiro. These artists design and create jewelry by heating, forging, and transforming ingots of high-karat gold. By using the ancient art and techniques of goldsmithing, their work explores, manifests, juxtaposes, and reconciles both ancient and contemporary aesthetics which has led them to experiment with textured gold surfaces and granulation, fused with organic forms and modernist motifs.

In anticipation of New York Jewelry Week, Wilensky brings the marvel of sinuous gemstones to Chelsea. Evocative and ethereal, Naomi Sarna debuts original works at the gallery from November 20th- December 20th, 2019. The award-winning designer will showcase hand carved jewels, inspired by the drapery of fabric and flow of water—a homage to motion in precious gem material. Sculptural and wearable, Sarna’s work complements Wilensky, where breathtaking aesthetic meets exquisite minerals. During “Naomi Sarna: Stone in Motion,” the emotive power of colored gemstones is unleashed. Viewers follow meticulous curves throughout the cases, enraptured by each complex carving. With twenty-three American Gem Trade Association Spectrum Award wins, and pieces in the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection, Naomi Sarna is internationally renowned for her carving, setting, and design. Her journey involves impassioned activism for the Maasai of Tanzania, promoting female entrepreneurship, and giving back proceeds from select pieces to support eye health in the local mining community.

Simurg
Nov 20, 2019 -- Jan 04, 2020
Can a 12th century Sufi poem coexist with a group of contemporary artworks and heighten the perception of Western artforms? The experiment attempted here is an overlay of literary references, traditional techniques, various media and technologies. Four bodies of works —by Hope Atherton, Nicolas Baier, Gonzalo Lebrija, and Anne Lindberg—resonate with Farid-ud-Din Attar’s epic allegory of Islamic Sufi mysticism, The Conference of the Birds. Each body of work forms a unique cosmography that chimes with aspects of this allegorical tale. An auditory experience, conceived by Frank Dufour of the collective Agence 5970, compels the visitor to delve into their mysteries. Curator: Muriel Quancard.

Nov 21, 2019 -- Jan 11, 2020
Renowned American photographer Eve Sonneman instills a powerful vibrancy in her new series Navigation With Dreams. Using her signature style of pairing stills taken seconds apart, she skillfully captures the intrigue of everyday happenings among iconic locations around the world. From hip hop dancing in Coney Island to musical instruments in Cannes, Sonneman couples two images from a fleeting moment, revealing only the slightest change between them. The artist’s astute observations present a humanistic narrative to her work, making normally mundane moments fantastically special. Whether it’s a prequel to a laugh or the aftermath of exploding fireworks, the photographs dance with one another. Sonneman invites us to get lost in the rich backdrops of twinkling city lights, serene cloud-filled skies and dancers pulsating with energy. Each image is meticulously chosen to propel you to the next, revealing a masterful insight into a world otherwise missed. Eve Sonneman was born in Chicago. She has exhibited widely throughout the world and has received numerous grants. She participated in the 1977 Documenta and in the biennales of Venice, Paris, Strasbourg and Australia. Her work is represented in forty-three museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, the Centre George Pompidou, Paris, and the National Gallery of Australia, among others. She has published seven books, the most recent being “La Ville Ecrite,” by Editions of Centre Pompidou, Paris. Sonneman currently lives and works in New York City.

Side Effects
Nov 27, 2019 -- Feb 06, 2020
SACI New York Gallery's winter exhibition is filled with vibrant visuals, showcasing mixed media and digital imagery by alumna Sam Heydt. Previously exhibited at the 2019 Miami Art Basel, Side Effects, debuts in NYC for the winter. On View: November 27, 2019 - February 6, 2020 Employing a complex narrative assemblage of movie imagery, war photography and vintage advertisement, this exhibition takes the self-deception of the post-war American middle class – i.e., the narrative created by tabloids, television, and cinema – as a leading motive, and sidesteps into iconographically related themes. Through adding and subtracting meaning by combining images of destruction with portrayals of the virtues born from the American Dream, Heydt confronts the disillusionment of our time with the ecological and existential nightmare it is responsible for. Please join us for the Artist Reception: Thursday, December 19th @ 6:00pm Location: 454 W 19th Street, New York, NY 10011 Hours: Mon - Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm

2019 Annual Affiliates Exhibition
Dec 03, 2019 -- Dec 21, 2019
The fourth in a series of yearly exhibitions featuring sculpture by Gilles Giuntini, paintings by Kathy A. Moore, ceramics culture by John Rohlfing, mixed media by Carolyn Sheehan, and paintings by Jane Shoenfeld. Gilles Giuntini is exhibiting work directly influenced and inspired by a six-month residency in Italy, deeply immersed in the culture and landscape of the region. The bronzes were completed at a foundry in the town of Pietrasanta, in western Tuscany; while the larger work, Ex Familia, comprising of charred wood and lead, was subsequently executed in his Brooklyn studio. Kathy A. Moore paints and draws from intense visual observation based on the still life motif. Her intent is to place the viewer within her immediate visual perspective, as if the viewer is present, stepping out of a spectator role. Within each still life, she aspires to convey a luminous, quiet, and intimate order. John Rohlfing’s ceramic vessels evoke visual references to the figure, human sexuality and landscape. This interpretation of the complex interrelationships between art and nature, surface and form and man's relationship to his environment are significant and for me an attempt to draw a personal understanding of the balances in life. Making pots is the art and craft that celebrates the human spirit; it captures the maker’s touch in a material that like humanity is part of a process of transformation and change. Carolyn Sheehan creates art works that are best described by color and images. She combines creativity and imagination with emotions in every piece with the sole purpose of not only creating an aesthetic that impacts the feelings but causes pleasure as well. Every piece is worked like a sculpture which is three dimensional and they take shape in a style in which the icon is always the focal point. Jane Shoenfeld’s recent series of pastel abstractions and small acrylic paintings on Yupo is based on W.B. Yeat’s 1919 prophetic poem, The Second Coming. Each painting is titled with a phrase from the poem. Shoenfeld invites the collective and personal unconscious into her creative process by reciting Yeat’s lines to herself as she paints. The emotional impact of color is a major visual tool. Within the abstraction; lively figure-ground relationships, subtle transitions and edges, and shifting references to representation create powerfully suggestive relationships between abstract forms.

Neela Pushparj M.D.
Dec 04, 2019 -- Dec 30, 2019
Neela Pushparj M.D. : My favorite way of painting is to add colors to wet or damp paper and allowing shapes to emerge from them by picking them out with negative painting. I like and use a lot of color in my work; I use a veritable feast of colors in my florals which are semi-abstract to sometimes totally abstract. I am more restrained in my landscapes and still life work. Opening Reception: Thu, Dec 5, 6-8pm.

Nicholas Krushenick : Collage
Dec 12, 2019 -- Jan 25, 2020
A formative medium for the artist, collage enabled Nicholas Krushenick to establish a visual vocabulary that formed the basis for his most iconic works. The bright processed colors, broad black lines, and overlapping, quasi-organicforms that define his later works first appear in these bold, layered, and loosely stapled abstract collages.

THE BACK ROOM: Featuring AMERICA MARTIN, MARY FINLAYSON, ELLEN VON WIEGAND, ADRIANA OLIVER, GREG MILLER + ANNA KINCAIDE
Jan 01, 2020 -- Apr 17, 2020
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: THE BACK ROOM: Featuring AMERICA MARTIN, MARY FINLAYSON, ELLEN VON WIEGAND, ADRIANA OLIVER, GREG MILLER + ANNA KINCAIDE WINTER/SPRING 2020 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd Street | New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com Jan. 17 – Apr. 1 THE BACK ROOM JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, The Back Room, a group exhibition that celebrates the seduction and drama of entering a gallery’s private, back room. An exploration into past and upcoming shows, the works in The Back Room celebrates the art world’s unique ritual of inviting preferred patrons to view the gallery’s exclusive inventory. Including works by America Martin, Mary Finlayson, Ellen Von Wiegand, Adriana Oliver, Greg Miller, and Anna Kincaide, all artists hold distinctive sensibilities in subject matter and concept, yet are linked through an expressive formal approach. In a collaborative effort in bringing the abstract and figurative arts together, the featured artists showcase the extensive visual influences of pop culture. Colombian-American artist America Martin continues her examination of humanist themes through figurative abstraction and powerful, raw elements of color and line. Scenes of everyday life that link the body to the continuity of nature permeate her work, captured through her depictions of the human form, animals, and florals. Martin continually redefines her oeuvre through new material considerations, continuing the ubiquitous theme of human nature and our relationships with the physical world. Mary Finlayson’s interest in painting interior spaces portrays how environments reveal identity. Navigating the themes of intimacy, memory, and self, Finlayson’s gouache paintings reflect the vulnerable narratives unveiled through ownership of possessions. Flattening the perspective of each scene, her still lifes provide a voyeuristic glimpse in to each curated space. Ellen Von Wiegand’s linocuts reverberate with a quest for self-assurance and serenity as she uses her own nude body within her stylized prints. Featuring a distinctive use of line to establish composition, her silhouettes and their environments are incised with delicate contours that reinforce dimensionality. Highlighting structural and decorative elements with patterned line, texture, and opaque blocks of color, Von Wiegand’s intent and approach renders the works poetic, vulnerable, and highly personal. With a sharp eye for shape and form, Adriana Oliver transforms familiar shapes into neutral forms open to interpretation. Working in a reductive palette, as well as simplified line-work, her imagery stands out with her minimalist approach to figuration. In her use of line, hue, intensity and value, the works attain depth and resonance, striking a perfect balance between message and form. Greg Miller’s mixed media works are instantly recognizable, drawing on his specific cultural lens and Californian roots. Fragility, nostalgia, as well as the fleeting nature of cultural ephemera and collective memory are explored in works that effortlessly blend familiar imagery of the golden age of print media into new narratives. Miller’s visual collages are an amalgamation of grit and texture, the layers a visual representation of the destruction rendered by the passage of time. Incorporating elements of fashion photography and contemporary socio-cultural emblems of status and identity, Anna Kincaide’s figures define the separation between body and mind. Headless and bursting forth with florals, her figures showcase the idea of ambiguity between our bodies, identities, and thoughts. These artists will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression.

Beyond the Stars
Feb 13, 2020 -- Mar 28, 2020
BEYOND THE STARS JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Beyond The Stars, an exhibition of new work by artist collective Cascione & Lusciov at the gallery’s New York location. Comprised of Silvia Cascione and Roman Lusciov, the duo’s new body of sculptural work explores both hardwired and au courant notions of form, line, and the romantic associations tied to outer space. The exhibition title, Beyond The Stars, invites multi-faceted connections between the origin of life and futuristic dimension, while visually translating the immateriality of space and time into streamlined, biomorphic forms. Conceptually focused on objects in motion, their installations, which often involve kinetic sculptures, draw parallels between the sensation of forward propulsion and an unknown, abstract future. Conflating the solidity of their materials with the appearance of a fluid, liquid state, the relationship between volume and space is explored in each sculpture. Channeling the transformations of a star’s shape and color throughout its lifetime, Cascione & Lusciov demonstrate an understanding of how sculpture can serve as a tool of expression for different realities of life. Each work made entirely by hand and unique, the successful manipulation of physical materials such as bronze, steel, and acrylic mirror show an unprecedented sensitivity to the qualities of each medium. Combining clean lines of modernist aesthetics, highly reflective, metallic surfaces paired with organic forms amplify a sense of emotion and dynamicity. Heavily influenced by minimalist and neo-futurist movements, Cascione & Lusciov appropriate techniques from sculpture, design, and goldsmithing within their practice. Modernizing a traditional lost-wax process of bronze casting that can be traced back 6,000 years, the methodology produces poetic juxtaposition between the ancient process and the completed futuristic forms. Stripped of all unnecessary elements, soft curves create a succession of roundness, yielding slick, aerodynamic sculptures. Inspired by the words of Italian astrophysicist Margherita Hack, “All the matter we are made of was built by the stars… So we are truly children of the stars,” Cascione & Lusciov’s sculptures exhibit a belief that with the help of the arts, science and technology can achieve rapid advancement. In that sense, their art is a vision of the future; a vision represented through pure shape, innovative technique, and interdisciplinary collaboration. SILVIA CASCIONE (b. 1979, Milan, Italy) received a BA in Sculpture from Brera Academy of Fine Arts, Italy in 2004, after which she studied Fashion Design at Politecnico di Milano and worked as a designer for several Italian fashion houses. Silvia is also trained in goldsmith’s art and wax modeling. ROMAN LUSCIOV (b. 1983, Izhevsk, Russia) studied at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania, and graduated from the European Institute of Design in 2006. He subsequently worked in the fields of architecture, industrial and interior design.
