Guo Hongwei : Pareidolia
Mar 03, 2020 -- Apr 04, 2020
For the re-emergence of his investigation of watercolor after several years in which he concentrated on oil painting, Guo has gathered the individual works under the general heading of Pareidolia, a technical term that refers to the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern, for example seeing shapes in clouds, and seeing faces in inanimate objects or abstract patterns. A widely known example of this phenomenon is the Rorschach inkblot test. This tendency is often manifested in the composition of Guo Hongwei’s watercolors, as he intuitively arranges his subjects into rows and patterns. Opening Reception: Thu, Jun 7, 6pm.

Inspired by the history of Chinese landscape painting, Kantanen uses a digital paintbrush to record and layer images.

Melodie Provenzano : Seeing Oneself in Others
Feb 27, 2020 -- Apr 11, 2020
Inspired by ancient Buddhist principles of attaining liberation through acts of selflessness, still-life artist Melodie Provenzano devised an exhibition concept that honors this notion. Provenzano borrowed six sculptures by six different artists currently working in or around New York City, which she brought back to her studio, studied, and painted from direct observation.

THE BACK ROOM: Featuring AMERICA MARTIN, MARY FINLAYSON, ELLEN VON WIEGAND, ADRIANA OLIVER, GREG MILLER + ANNA KINCAIDE

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.

Tom McGlynn : At Present
Feb 27, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
Tom McGlynn presents paintings from 2018 – 2020 that continue his dedication to the transformation of the generic visual culture he finds so prevalent in contemporary life into a lexicon of shapes and colors which are the vehicle for his art. In this current iteration however, McGlynn advances his approach through even bolder dismissals of observational art making. The abstractions are no longer directly connected to the culturally loaded source materials he once looked to for inspiration. His appropriations of corporate logos of large multi-national Fortune 500 companies have taken on further dimension by being one step further removed from the source material. Opening Reception: Thu, Feb 27, 6-8pm.

Tim Youd : Black/Red/Ribbon
Mar 06, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
Black/Red/Ribbon is an exhibition of Tim Youd's new oil and typewriter ribbon paintings. Youd’s paintings are based on the typewriter ribbon, and draw from it as both an object and an idea. Formally, the paintings are hard-edged abstractions of rectangles within rectangles. They are comprised of used ribbons laid across the panel. Over this, Youd adds oil paint in hues of red, black, and blue to reference typewriter ribbons, and shades of peach, pink, and white to suggest the person typing on the machine. The nested rectangles echo the page of a book, the block of text inside the larger rectangle of the page. The typewriter ribbon doubles symbolically as a sentence, albeit an illegible one. Opening Reception: Fri, Mar 6, 6-8pm.

Kelly Akashi : Mood Organ
Feb 27, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
In this exhibition, Akashi challenges the ideological underpinnings of Western structures of knowledge, history, and time in a series of sculptures that formalize alternative models of genealogy and emotional connective currents. The title of the exhibition makes tangible the emotional being in all people, giving it a substance, or an organ, of its own. It also draws from a fictional device, the ‘Penfield Mood Organ’, which questions what we would do if we could control, direct, or utilize our feelings. Opening Reception: Thu, Feb 27, 6-8pm.

Liam Gillick : Redaction
Mar 03, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
The show brings together a selection of key texts, abstract structures and installations, spanning the early 90s to the late 2000s, and will coincide with the gallery’s 25th anniversary. Since the late 1980s, Gillick has employed a variety of methodologies to explore the semiotics of the built world. Writing has maintained a crucial role in his practice, culminating in an eclectic collection of fictional texts that resist linear narrative in favor of fragmented dialogue, stream of consciousness, and abrupt slips in time. In addition to these narrative devices, Gillick often uses historical revisioning as an exercise through which to imagine alternative parallel futures. Continually referenced, decontextualized, and reworked, the texts remain in a permanent state of development and transformation in order to examine shifting modes of production and the psychosocial implications of late capitalism. Opening Reception: Tue, Mar 3, 6-8pm.

Mar 24, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
The images of these collages and paintings have been seized from disparate and cumulative memories. The personages and places are culled from diverse sequences and moments in time. Likewise, the spaces within the canvas traverse multiple time frames merging the past and present almost as a cinematic reel that can go backward and forward. Many of the paintings and collages can take years to finish thus adding the sediment of earlier depictions to a continual present that is both erased and preserved. The sources of my work come from both my subjective experiences and affinity with poetry, literature, philosophy and the history of art. Wendy Gittler has a Masters Degree in both Painting and Art History. She has been in numerous solo and group shows. She has taught at Hunter College, The School of Visual Arts, The New York Studio School and Stony Brook University in New York City as well as having moderated many panels on themes in contemporary and modern art. She has written articles for Art Critical, Art News, Provincetown Arts and artists catalogues. She has also traveled extensively in the Mediterranean and the Tropics.

Marianne Barcellona: What’s Left: Tenuous Survivals
Mar 24, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
“What’s Left: Tenuous Survival” is a collection of ink drawings and collages that reflect on the ravages increasingly caused by both nature and man. Rocks, lava wastelands, denuded trees, stumps, desecrated fields and detritus are the witnesses of this unfolding drama as well as metaphors for an accelerated unraveling of the world as we’ve known it. These often quirky narrative landscapes contain an underlying sense of foreboding and dark alarm for the tenuous survival of life. Marianne Barcellona’s early years were spent a as a professional editorial photographer, travelling the globe on assignments. In the 1990’s she began to use her years of travel as reference sources for a more personal expression through fine arts oil painting. In recent years she has been progressively attracted to working with ink, acrylic wash and paper to create dense collages. Barcellona has been the recipient of 13 Fellowships at internationally renowned Artist Residencies and been included in over 70 exhibitions. She has given 8 Visiting Artist Master Classes as part of Harvard’s Freshmen Arts Program, and in 2019 she led a professional workshop on Landscape-based Ink Drawing/Collage at the Baer Art Center in Iceland. Currently Barcellona lives and works in New York City. Contact information: mb@mariannebarcellona.com | 917-916-2080 See more work at http://www.barcellonaart.com

Benjamin Degen: In Waves
Mar 14, 2020 -- Apr 18, 2020
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present In Waves, featuring new work by BENJAMIN DEGEN, from 14 March through 18 April 2020. An opening reception will be held the evening of 14 March from 6 to 8 PM. The artist’s fourth solo exhibition at the Gallery, In Waves presents paintings and drawings that continue his exploration of landscape, movement, and observation. Degen’s works employ extensive mark-making and fluid touches to describe a human presence. As the paint darts across the canvas or the ink is actively applied on paper, we move through the landscape while the landscape moves through us. Degen’s act of looking becomes a way for us to see ourselves, within a moment, connected to this world.

Transcendental
Feb 16, 2020 -- Apr 19, 2020
By developing a geometry between line and the spaces in between in their work, the four abstractionists featured in Transcendental create a point of departure for the mind into a spiritual consciousness. The beauty of repeated geometric form is a motif that has played a central role in Havens’ work. Dynamic and colorful compositions play with line and shape to suggest larger spaces, both natural and manmade. Tayo Heuser's aspiration has always been to merge line and color in such a way that does not end in representational imagery but rather opens the door for the poetics of the imagination. Her abstractions hover between the need to meticulously render geometric shapes and intuitively express her feelings. Tom Martinelli works with simple rounded shapes, fields of color and the character of a painted edge. Using stencils, paint rollers and spray paint he minimize the hands presence while covering large areas with a few attentive motions and materializing preferred a ‘imperfection.’ Non-measured placement of form creates unexpected asymmetries suggesting a universe of gravitational repulsion and attraction, compression and expansion. Andra Samelson’s work explores the relationship of microcosm and macrocosm, emptiness and form. The imagery in her paintings is often associated with molecular and galactic systems. Meet the Artists: Sun, Mar 8, 2-4pm.

Carol Diehl : Flat File Feature Artist
Feb 16, 2020 -- Apr 19, 2020
Carol Diehl : This series of pastel drawings, begun in 2011, was inspired by the work of early female spiritual artists Hilma af Klint and Emma Kunz. The idea was to “transcend” the everyday world, and to do so while neither inventing nor adopting any special symbolism. Instead Diehl aims for that elevated plane one might call “spiritual” through the use of generic motifs—and nothing could be more generic than the drafting stencils available in any art supply store. Therefore, the drawings represent an attempt to transcend the mundane through the mundane, yet she is hoping because the imagery is so mundane, so ordinary, it may also come across as a bit humorous.

Sarah Charlesworth : Image Language
Feb 27, 2020 -- Apr 19, 2020
Image Language examines the work of New York artist Sarah Charlesworth (1947–2013), tracing elements of her creative output over the course of forty years, across her formative involvement in art publications to her later camera-based projects. Charlesworth worked serially throughout her career—in the sequenced format of magazines, in her production of photographs, and in her methodical and thematic organization of reference images. Bringing together publications, ephemeral materials, and photographic works from the artist’s archive, the exhibition focuses on Charlesworth’s early formal and conceptual strategies, exploring how she utilized photography and appropriation to investigate the cultural influence of images. Organizer: Christine Robinson. Opening Reception: Thu, Feb 27, 6-8pm.

Mercer Street
Feb 06, 2020 -- Apr 25, 2020
The exhibition brings together a selection of work spanning five decades, by four pioneering artists, created in and around a shared space in Lower Manhattan. Residents and neighbors of Mercer Street from the mid-1970s, the women featured here, among a larger group of neighborhood innovative thinkers and initiators, were then and remain now, crucial to capturing the history and creative development of New York’s downtown community. Marcia Hafif, Joan Jonas, Shigeko Kubota and Jackie Winsor offer a critical cross section of painting, sculpture, performance, photography and film, that marks each artist’s singular artistic approach and process; initially linked by common physical space, ultimately realized by a rigorous feminist ethic that stands apart, in its proficiency and innovative resiliency.

Richard Rezac
Mar 14, 2020 -- Apr 25, 2020
Richard Rezac’s abstract sculptures are rooted in a studious consideration of the history of art, architecture, and design. Originally trained as a painter, Rezac has said that his work “behaves like a painting”, the sculptures hovering in a place between representation and direct presentation, existing simultaneously as both images and objects. His background in painting is also apparent in his masterful use of color, which is a touchstone of his oeuvre – the palette he chooses for each work is at times bold and vibrant, at others subtle and natural in tone. Opening Reception: Fri, Mar 13, 6-8pm.

Joseph Desler Costa : Dream Date
Mar 05, 2020 -- Apr 25, 2020
Dream Date is as much about dreams as it is about dates. Joseph Desler Costa’s highly constructed photographs picture his anxieties and desires as he reconciles a longing for symbols from his youth with the more pervasive images that now occupy his field of view. The resulting works—part autobiographical, part fiction—are a materialization of memories and fantasies warped not only by the passage of time but also by a steady consumption of media imagery. Opening Reception: Thu, Mar 5, 6-8pm.

James Luna : Take a Picture with a Real Indian
Mar 19, 2020 -- May 16, 2020
In many of his works, James Luna used humor as a tool to simultaneously disarm and confront. Luna’s initial performance of Take a Picture with a Real Indian took place on the steps outside Union Station in Washington, D.C,. on October 14, 1991. Presenting himself as a tourist attraction, the artist invited onlookers with the eponymous line, “Take a picture with a real Indian.” As the crowd gathered, he continued: “Take a picture here, in Washington, D.C,. on this beautiful Monday morning, on this holiday called Columbus Day.” Like many of his works, the performance deconstructed America’s selective romanticization and shameless commodification of Native Americans. “America loves to say ‘her Indians,’” Luna added. “America loves to see us dance for them. America likes our arts and crafts. America likes to name cars and trucks after our tribes.”

The artist moved quickly from cars to storefronts to shelves filled with glassware and toys.

If you plan to attend the Opening Reception, please RSVP, as we are expecting a full house! Light food and refreshments will be provided. • Andrew Gatti was born in Denver, Colorado. After relocating and spending most of his childhood in Akron, Ohio, he returned to Denver for college and graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Art Degree in Studio Art and Italian Language & Literature from the University of Denver.

Kenny Harris
Apr 21, 2020 -- May 16, 2020
Kenny Harris’ new paintings evoke the light and mood of architectural spaces from his travels around the world. He is fascinated with subtle light effects and expressive painterly surfaces, focusing on interiors or cityscapes. His dynamic paint application describes the way light pours through a space, with scrapes and impasto embodying the texture of the surfaces depicted. The paint itself becomes plaster and wood, or a glint of light reflecting off a dull surface worn smooth with age. Opening Reception: Thu, Apr 23, 6-8pm.

JB Blunk
Apr 30, 2020 -- Jun 06, 2020
Working primarily in wood and ceramic, JB Blunk developed a distinct style that drew upon the Japanese principle of directness as well as an unfaltering reverence for the natural world, particularly his interest in ecology and primordial landscapes. Taking forms from antiquity and mysticism and translating them instinctively through raw, salvaged materials, Blunk produced a body of work that represents an innate expression of, and conversation with, nature. Opening Reception: Thu, Apr 30, 6-8pm.

Shirazeh Houshiary : A Thousand Folds
Apr 30, 2020 -- Jun 13, 2020
A Thousand Folds is an exhibition of new works by London-based Iranian artist Shirazeh Houshiary. Known for her painting, sculpture, and animation that seek to challenge viewers’ perceptions of time, space, and materiality, Houshiary’s works often engage opposing ideas and states of being, including transparency and opacity, sound and silence, surface and depth, presence and absence. The title of this exhibition is inspired from the word thousandfold to suggest an experience that is a conduit for understanding the world around us. Each work unveils fissures or folds as spaces that inhabit our dreams, imaginations, and perceptions. Houshiary approaches the intangible and evanescent, articulating a metaphysical reality that lies beyond mere form and surface.

Paul Smith
May 07, 2020 -- Jun 27, 2020
Paul Smith’s first one-man show at ABC No Rio in 1983, about the civil war in Guatemala, was reviewed by Walter Robinson, with works subsequently included in museum shows curated by Lucy Lippard, Leon Golub and Lowery Sims. This was followed in the ‘80's by three solo shows at the East Village’s Greathouse Gallery, and innumerable group shows. He was included in surveys of the East Village scene curated by Henry Geldzahler, Sur Rodney Sur, Phyllis Plous, John Caldwell, Tom Solomon, etc. He also participated in many projects with Group Material, from “Subculture” on NYC subways in 1983, to “MASS” at MOMA, 1988 (in “Committed to Print”), and “The Decade Show” in 1990 at the New Museum, MOCHA & the Studio Museum in Harlem.

Their index-like titles and typically symmetrical or balanced compositions intend to hint at something of the monumental, appropriate to a classifying program. Opening Reception: Thu, May 21, 6-8pm.
