Rough Stuff: A Celebration of Wild Surface
Apr 25, 2019 -- May 25, 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: ROUGH STUFF: A CELEBRATION OF WILD SURFACE April 25 - May 25, 2019 The title, “ROUGH STUFF” is a deliberately ambiguous play on words.  The viewer might immediately expect an exhibition of wood-fired ceramics with great accumulations of ash, imbuing the surfaces with chthonic primordial landscapes.   And yes, viewers will find some of that rich technique in this exhibition, but in fact, we had something else in mind.   We live in cynical times.  In cynical times the first concept to be sacrificed to the beasts of dogma is most often ‘beauty’ or ‘grace’. To us, beauty makes rough and exquisite demands that the onlookers slow down and, however briefly, give themselves up to its call.  Beauty becomes a warrior in a performance reaching back to archaic times.   We want the clay to live in this exhibition.  It is common to link sculpted clay to landscape, but landscape is changing all the time right in front of us, especially now.  Landscape is umbilically linked to Place, and the art that Cavin-Morris Gallery shows, from Art Brut to ceramics (sculptural as well as tea and sake), to ethnographic, has always been closely tied to the myriad ideas Place awakens in the artists’ mind.  That vision of place runs the gamut from untouched and euphoric to dystopian.   That is really mean by ROUGH STUFF: a celebration of wild surface.  It is an exploration of the idea that never has earth, air, fire and water been more interactive with our daily lives than now.  Like the tensed horse head in Picasso’s Guernica, our earth in all its beauty and ugliness is screaming to be heard.  Through the translations of visionary artists, we can always hear its real voice.   Sculptors who use clay work with the raw essence of the planet that most of us take for granted.  We wanted special work for this exhibition, and we found them, created by the remarkable artists we have shown for years, and welcoming some amazing sculptors we felt would augment the vision.   We deliberately chose to emphasize the non-utilitarian aspects of their creations, with very few exceptions. The artists experiment with local clays, they display edgy aesthetics, obsessively working surfaces both in naked clay and glazed, without losing their basic respect for the clay body. For additional information please contact info@cavinmorris.com or call us at 212-226-3768.

Setting out to mark a boundary that was never physically defined in its entirety, that original demarcation was eliminated following the Mexican-American War in 1848 and cost Mexico more than half its land--500,000 square miles worth.

Diana Copperwhite: The Clock Struck Between Time
Apr 30, 2019 -- Jun 01, 2019
Chelsea, New York: 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is very honored to present Diana Copperwhite’s, The Clock Struck between Time, from April 30 to June 1, 2019. The opening reception is on Tuesday, April 30 from 6pm to 8pm, with the artist in attendance. Copperwhite, who is based in Dublin, in these new paintings expands upon her concerns of figuration, abstraction, and representation with references both to time as it is observed and counted and to the temporality of music and memory. Her arresting critical approach to abstraction by way of a “computer-inflected visuality,” as suggested by Stephen Maine in his Hyperallergic 2017 review, suggests reality is a pliant screen and evokes the instability of images and the fragility of memories as metaphors for the precariousness of our present realities.

Robyn O'Neil: An Unkindness
Apr 25, 2019 -- Jun 01, 2019
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present Robyn O’Neil: An Unkindness. The exhibition will run from 25 April to 1 June 2019 with a reception for the artist Thursday evening, 25 April from 6 to 8 PM. Robyn O’Neil’s fourth exhibition with the Gallery marks a departure in process, a deconstruction of the visual and material, and an aesthetic genesis for the artist. Named for “an unkindness,” the term used to reference a flock of ravens, the exhibition impresses upon the viewer a sense of foreboding and threat that is reinforced by the centerpiece triptych, An Unkindness. The ominous, swirling unkindness in the middle panel of the triptych and the pack of wolves, jaws wide in preparation for attack, in the adjacent, confer a theme that has become central to O’Neil’s oeuvre: life on Earth is arduous and fraught with challenge. The collage drawings, A Lot of Things Contributed and The Nemesis Hypothesis, further embody these sentiments in their monochromatic and haphazard construction. A reprieve is found in the heavenly scene of the right panel of the triptych. Reminiscent of the pastel Impressionist paintings of Claude Monet and Georges Seurat, the ethereal landscape is a paradoxical bookend, one that offers hope and optimism, to austere darkness. Underlining An Unkindness is the sense of eruptive evolution, as the works featured in the exhibition showcase Robyn O’Neil’s plunge into a new phase of artistic process and development. Well-known for her monochromatic, black-and-white, all-graphite drawings, the artist injects a rare dose of color through the use of colored pencils, oil pastels and acrylic paint. Once cautious with the handling of her drawings, she has sadistically poured boiling water on the paper, scraped it with sandpaper, and written on and sliced the drawings with razor blades. These experiments in deconstruction result in a newfound technical precariousness and a palpable emotionality in which the works oscillate between the tool and the paper, the dark and the light, and the monochromatic and the colorful. Robyn O’Neil lives and works in Los Angeles, California. She will be honored with a major solo exhibition at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth opening October of this year. O’Neil has previously had solo museum exhibitions with the Des Moines Art Center; the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston; and the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem. She has been included in the Whitney Biennial and in exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; the Kemper Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and “Dargerism" at The American Folk Art Museum. Her work can be found in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art; the Menil Drawing Institute; Philadelphia Museum of Fine Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art among others. Additionally, Robyn O’Neil hosts one of the highest-rated poetry & literature podcasts, “ME READING STUFF.” The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

George Miyasaki | Abstract Expressionist California: Paintings and Lithographs, 1955-61
May 16, 2019 -- Jun 15, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce George Miyasaki (1935-2013), Abstract Expressionist California: Paintings and Lithographs, 1955-1961. This is RYAN LEE’s first presentation of Miyasaki’s work since announcing the representation of his estate last December. The exhibition will feature a selection of Miyasaki’s acclaimed early abstractions, many of which have never before been shown. Miyasaki was born in rural Hawaii to Japanese parents and grew up under martial law during World War II. In 1953 he moved to Oakland, California to study with Richard Diebenkorn and Nathan Oliveira at the California College of Arts & Crafts. Working in both painting and printmaking, Miyasaki cultivated a Bay Area-inflected brand of abstract expressionism. Drawing inspiration from nature, particularly the western landscape, paintings like Coastline (1960) use a pale palette of gray-blues, sea green, rose, and a few dabs of yellow to convey a foggy seascape with subdued hues that are tempered by its thickly painted surface. This balanced execution of harmony and dissonance is also characteristic of Terrain #2 (1961) and Horizon #2 (1958), both of which demonstrate Miyasaki’s gestural application of controlled color.

Fei Li: Chaos, In An Almost Classical Mode
May 21, 2019 -- Jun 15, 2019
"In the studio, childhood memories in a small ancient city, observations of contemporary cultural and social forces, mythological and historical references, the desire to breach the language decorum... countless sources come and go during the process, but it is the intimate sensation that gives the work its plot." - Fei Li First Street Gallery is pleased to announce Chaos, In An Almost Classical Mode , a solo exhibition of mixed media paintings and drawings by Fei Li, the gallery's first presentation of her work. The exhibition will be on view from May 21st through June 15th with an opening reception on Thursday, May 23rd, 6-8pm. Fei Li's latest work is a painter's attempt to create an encyclopedia which visualizes the absurdity and tragedy of man facing irresistible forces in the tide of time, and which examines the capacity for chaos inside a rigorous and coherent structure. Li purposefully uses small oil pastel sticks on large surfaces as a metaphor for the artist taking her arms against the destiny, so to speak, confronting the impossibility. An immense network of relationships is woven into a labyrinth. Her approach, is oblique, like walking a tightrope between visual dynamics and pandemonium. Inspired by underlying correspondences between James Joyce's Ulysses and Homer's Odyssey , the paintings in this exhibition take the structure of historical artworks as their point of departure. For example, in the diptych painting Anomie , the left panel is based on Persian miniature paintings from The Shah-nameh of Shah Tahmasp while the right panel is based on Bellini's Saint Jerome Reading. And in the painting Past Continuous, the artist use the ancient Chinese calligrapher Huaisu's cursive script of an Indian Buddhist Sutra ( Sutra of Forty-two Chapters) to fabricate a pictorial landscape space. Born in China, Fei Li lives and works in Brooklyn. The artist's reality has been chaotic and shifting since she was a young perceiver, living inside a huge traditional Minnan House yet crowded with seven other families, growing up with an acute sense of disorientation and divided identity. Thereafter Li has constantly moved and traveled. She studied with Lon Clark at the San Francisco Studio School and in 2012 moved to New York City, a vortex where the seething metropolitan life and the artist's solitude converge. Her works have been shown internationally in museums and galleries, including Spartanburg Museum and Whatcom Museum in the United States, Museum of Abbaye de Lehon in France, Asian Culture Center in South Korea and Chinese European Art Center in China. Li is also the awardee of numerous funded artist's residencies, fellowships and grants including Dumfries House in Scotland; Drake Arts Centre in Kokkola, Finland; The Alfred & Trafford Klots International Program in Lehon, France; Kunstnarhuset Messen International A.I.R Program in Alvik; Jon Imber Painting Fellowship in Vermont Studio Center, and Queens Arts Fund New Works Grant.

Barbara Laube: A Breath Away
May 21, 2019 -- Jun 15, 2019
The Painting Center is pleased to present A Breath Away by Barbara Laube in the Main Gallery. This is Laube’s solo exhibition at The Painting Center. The title alludes to an inner prompting, “I am a breath away.” These paintings were all done in the past year. While some may see this second exhibition as a departure from her earlier work, it represents more of a evolution of the themes in Laube’s work that has been consistent for decades. The built up texture of the oil paint from her previous work has been replaced by the scraped textures of gold and silver leaf. Thick viscous impasto has given way to an ethereal lightness and touch. Gravity is surrendered to, and the fluid veils, drips, and accidental marks portray shifts in energy and consciousness. Imperfection, awkwardness, vulnerability, and a tentative quality are all present. New connections are constantly being forged and associations drawn. The view outside the studio windows of the Palisades and Hudson River has emerged recently. This is where Laube has lived for thirty years. She has always painted. Her decades long painting practice has taken her to Italy, France, Spain, Germany and South America. Barbara Laube has shown widely in New York and will have a solo show this Fall at M.David and Co.

Victoria Pacimeo: Lunar Rhythms
May 21, 2019 -- Jun 15, 2019
The Painting Center presents Lunar Rhythms, a selection of paintings by Victoria Pacimeo in the Project Room. Since childhood she has been fascinated with lunation cycles and their sensory effect. Strokes swirl reflecting sea, land and sky, the tides of waxing and waning. Colors, shapes, themes and work schedules are attuned to the phases of the moon. Paintings dance the edge, the tension of opposites, in the between - simple/fancy, figurative/abstract, delicate/coarse. Intrigued by the associations attributed to right and left brain, she will switch hands while painting. Her art process is grounded by her studies in ancient and modern women’s traditions at the Women’s Rites Center in NYC. In 2003 on International Women’s Day, she was invited by Union Theological Seminary to present “Seeing Each Other Into Beauty”, an art workshop using the artist/model relationship as experiential setting. This venture engages the interface of body image and creative power.

Nontsikelelo Mutiti : Everything is where is it expected
May 10, 2019 -- Jun 21, 2019
For Everything is where it is expected, Mutiti looks to the Hair Braiding Salon of the African diaspora as a communal space and meeting point - a place for discussion, hearsay, experimentation and visual spectacle, and one that can open up new paths for thinking about black histories and futures. Through prints, publications, artwork and objects, Mutiti adapts these spaces of beauty and knowledge production into a bookstore/gallery setting, investigating braiding technique as a process analogous to language-making and as a broader metaphor for identity, migration and global culture. Opening Reception: Fri, May 10, 6-8pm.

Constantin Brancusi : Brancusi's Flowers
May 16, 2019 -- Jun 29, 2019
Brancusi's Flowers offers an unprecedented opportunity to view eight of the sixteen known images on the subject matter. Each photographed and printed by the artist in his darkroom during the 1920s and 1930s, these still lifes, or ''nature's readymades'', served dual purposes for the artist. Firstly, they were created as gifts for friends and lovers serving as lasting objects of his affection, in contrast with the flowers themselves destined for decay. Secondly, they were a further extension of Brancusi's explorations into photography, fixing flora and fauna at the pinnacle of their sculptural beauty. Brancusi's Flowers highlights a chapter within his concise oeuvre that is singular in its focus on a subject matter outside of the artist's own making. The exhibition is presented concurrently with Brancusi : The Photographer at Kasmin Gallery (293 Tenth Ave).

RLWindow - ONTOPO : ?Hablas Turista?
May 15, 2019 -- Aug 15, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce ONTOPO : ?Hablas Turista? organized by Jon Santos with sitespecific photographic window installations by Priscilla Jeong, Kamau Patton, and Amy Yao from May 15 to August 15. Performances by Keetin Mayakara, Juri Onuki, and Kamau Patton will take place during the opening reception and in the gallery space. The project is site responsive to RLWindow designed to engage High Line visitors and tourists through architecture, performance, and participation. The RLWindow can be viewed on the High Line at 26th Street overlooking the gallery. ONTOPO is an on-going series of performative and participatory projects based on collective creative exchange. The project reimagines the relationship between creating and consuming, author and audience, with a multi-faceted embrace of visual art, cuisine, design, sound, architecture, and performance. The project’s core is the willingness to experiment and the collective energy of contributing artists from different regions. Each site creates freedom from familiar constraints allowing for more present participation among artists and audience. ONTOPO : ?Hablas Turista? meaning “Do You Speak Tourist?” references a project Priscilla Jeong and Amy Yao created in Tulum, Mexico. They spontaneously assembled for recreation, contemplation, rest, artistic production, and performance. In this context, the artists’ surroundings and their temporary community informed the works. The artists reconsider their voices and modes of production outside their studio within the dynamic context of localism and tourism. Juri Onuki and Kamau Patton participated in the Magick City and Catskills Zen Do ONTOPO projects respectively. Collectively the artists’ experiences and works fold into the RLWindow site and project series.

James Nares : Monuments
May 23, 2019 -- Jun 29, 2019
James Nares : New York City's downtown sidewalks were laid almost 200 years ago by immigrant masons. These monolithic granite slabs were elaborately chiseled with improvised marks and designs to help prevent pedestrians from slipping. These carvings have withstood the erosion of time and human traffic, leaving a wonderful record of free thought and whimsical, personal markings from the hands and minds of uncelebrated workmen. Single-stone wax rubbings were made on site, gilded in 22K gold, and hung vertically as shining ''monuments'' to those unknown souls whose touch still lingers on the city's sidewalks.

Valentin Carron
May 31, 2019 -- Jul 12, 2019
For all its promise of liberation from the gilded structures of exaltation surrounding the objet d'art, the readymade has become deflated by its own pressure. Found objects, assemblage and appropriation have been cunningly adopted and integrated into the mechanisms of taste, robbed of their subversive function and aestheticized into a polite paradigm. In a series of nine new collages upending these platitudes, Valentin Carron locates within his own psychology the entry points for the subconscious material of identity and freezes them, allowing for unexpected and arbitrary recombination that short-circuits accepted modes of explication. Opening Reception: Fri, May 31, 6-8pm.

New York Postcards: Return to Sender
Jun 06, 2019 -- Jun 29, 2019
Paul Calendrillo New York proudly announces the first solo exhibition with our gallery of award-winning artist, Marco Luccio, at our Chelsea gallery from 4 - 29 June 2019 with his latest exhibition and book launch—NEW YORK POSTCARDS—featuring works in varying mediums including ink, acrylic, and drypoint, composed on original postcards collected in New York. An exhibition over ten years in the making, Luccio began collecting used postcards from New York’s flea markets, antique and second-hand shops on his first trip to the city. In the artist’s words, he was drawn to their “beautiful, tactile and fragile beauty” and the stories they conveyed as “precious intimate artifacts and remnants of the past”. While Luccio confesses that working over the hand-written messages often felt like “vandalism”, the final result is ultimately both a preservation and elevation of ephemera into enduring art, creating a monumental mosaic representing aspects of civilization and art history through striking and memorable imagery. A kind of reverse archaeology, the small, penned stories excavated by Luccio from New York’s dusty boxes are layered over with sketches, paintings and prints of which many created during the artist’s frequent drawing excursions to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Renditions, interpretations and juxtapositions of famous artworks by Picasso, Modigliani and classic Greco-Roman sculptors adorn the cards, often leaving tantalizing glimpses of the hand-written messages, stamps and postmarks underneath. While the style and use of serendipity is unmistakably Luccio’s, there is often a delicacy to this small-form work that is a delightful addition to the artist’s metier In place of the large-scale pieces that have characterized Luccio’s recent exhibitions, the audience is invited into the expansiveness of the daily drawing practice—the constant searching, exploring, playing and discovering—that underpins Luccio’s continued artistic evolution. A highlight of NEW YORK POSTCARDS is that Luccio’s original sense of the postcards, as precious and intimate, has been preserved and expanded for the viewing audience. The multiple layers of story found on each work invite both close, detailed inspection and an invigoration of the imagination—they draw viewers in and entice us to take up the role of the ultimate story-weaver. What do these layers of meaning mean to us? What can they tell us of what is lost in our information technology-dominated, throwaway culture? Can we know what will ultimately become of our own small attempts at communication and connection? There are depths to be plumbed here, depths that complement and enrich the aesthetic beauty and impact that is a defining feature of Luccio’s work. Marco Luccio is represented in over 40 public and corporate collections internationally, including several museums such as the New York Public Library, the Museum of the City of New York, the National Gallery of Australia, and more. Luccio has held 49 solo exhibitions, including 3 major solo shows in New York, including 2 at the invitation of the Australian Consul General New York. He has exhibited in 150 group, curated and award shows, and has received several commissions. Luccio’s work has been shortlisted for many major awards including twice for both the Dobell Prize for Drawing, Australia’s most prestigious prize for drawing.

“BEGIN AGAIN” FEATURING BROOKE SHADEN
Jun 13, 2019 -- Aug 31, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: “BEGIN AGAIN” FEATURING BROOKE SHADEN June 13-August 31, 2019 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 BEGIN AGAIN Imaginative, versatile, and a master of concept, Brooke Shaden is a fine art photographer specializing in staged photography that combines allegorical symbolism with personal narrative. Utilizing props as well as commonplace objects, Shaden transforms the world around her into compelling, intricate dreamscapes that combine the strange with the familiar. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by the artist at the gallery’s NYC location, focusing on a new body of work that explores notions of permanence, survival, as well as the classic theme of man versus nature. In her new series, Shaden portrays a dystopian future, emphasizing the improbable odds of humankind in the face of the vastness of nature. Yet despite some of the darker elements, the tone of Shaden’s new body of work maintains a sense of optimism and a playful lightness. Aptly titled, Begin Again depicts a rebirth of self. Alluding to a reimagined future, reevaluated preconceptions, and a reinvention of the artistic process, Shaden thoroughly explores the idea of renewal. Culminating in an expressive awakening, her photographs embody an alternate reality of surrealism and fantasy where the disturbing is made beautiful. Shaden’s definition of her medium is both candid and pragmatic. According to her, “fine art is simply defined as personal work, something you do for yourself.” This directness is evident in her approach, and enables her to fully immerse herself in her practice, creating stunningly surreal, compelling images rooted in personal investigation. Shaden’s surrealism is based in reality and filtered through personal experience. Tonally and thematically, the work is evocative of the drama, palette, and representations of the sublime in nature of late 18th century Romanticism. The impactful, alluringly disconcerting compositions are created through fundamental changes to everyday objects resulting in uncanny, extraordinary images and stories. Shaden shapes the world to her vision utilizing only natural, practical lighting, and builds the final image via a layering process. In past explorations, Shaden’s work has posed probing questions of our collective anxieties, dreams, and nightmares. The imagery is often allegorical as well as visceral, seductive, and instantly relatable. One of the main themes is the eternal struggle of survival, of human nature versus mother nature, of the fragility human life and endurance of the human spirit. Allusions to this classic theme abound throughout the work, evoking ancient stories, myths, and records on the subject of the human condition. In a famous quote from As You Like It by Shakespeare the state of the human condition is presented: “All the world’s a stage And all the men and women merely players.” In the same spirit, Shaden’s dreamscapes can be seen as fashioning of a new reality, a means of taking control of life’s uncertainties and anxieties. Brooke Shaden’s 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.

Anne-Karin Furunes : Together but Apart
Jun 19, 2019 -- Aug 09, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce Together but Apart, an exhibition of new work by Anne-Karin Furunes. The exhibition will shed light on the increasingly urgent threat of climate change, particularly as the inhabitants of Fennoscandia, the Sapmi people, experience it. Together but Apart includes a selection of portraits, landscapes, and monumental paintings rendered in Furunes’s signature technique of perforated painted canvas. Furunes’ imagery is drawn from photographs housed at the Polar Archive at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromso as well as the Sophus Tromholt Collection at the University of Bergen Library—a world-famous archive of nineteenth-century images of the Sapmi people taken during the first scientific expedition to study the Northern Lights. Though her paintings appear photographic, they are created entirely by hand through a process of meticulous perforation that mimics the looks of halftone printing. Furunes begins with a monochrome canvas. She then translates the photographic image to canvas by creating a constellation of perforated holes in varying sizes that allow for the passage of variable amounts of light. She alters each image to suit her vision, sometimes modifying the tone, perspective, and framing. Like photography, Furunes generates permanent images via the effects of light on a surface, though here the light remains unfixed and in constant dialogue with the surrounding environment.

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.
