Burn-Fire-Flow
Sep 06, 2018 -- Sep 29, 2018
After losing her artwork due to a building fire earlier this year, internationally exhibited visual artist, Zuzanna Kozlowska, is showing, for the first time, new work that explores the tension and variance within natural flow states such as the dichotomy between calm and rapid water, fire and light. The title, Burn-Fire-Flow, describes the exhibition’s visual theme of rebuilding after loss from initial cause, to the conflagration itself to the final healing process while being true to her mastery of line work. For this exhibition and her first solos show with Paul Calendrillo gallery, Zuzanna selected works on fabric which demonstrate her ability to capture ebb and flow while enhancing the conceptual integrity of the exhibition theme in the elegance that belies it. However, it is the emotion and sensation that each piece engenders, the feeling of internal conflict coupled with forward-looking optimism that distinguishes this remarkable body of work. This is a must-see exhibition for collectors, critics and writers concerned with the mundane conflicts life unexpectedly imposes, the positive human response and innovation in the fine art subcategory of fabric art.

Anthony Adcock: Foundation
Sep 06, 2018 -- Sep 29, 2018
Series of hyper real paintings and sculptures that resemble building materials from a construction site. Every Anthony Adcock exhibition is mounted with the disclaimer, There is no wood or metal in this exhibition.   In todays bustling world, this disclaimer works two-fold one, as a speed bump to slow the view down, and two, as a compass to point the viewer into the realm of painting. Adcocks paintings and sculptures literally resemble the objects found on a job-site pieces of worn plywood, rusty I-beams, scrap rebar, work tools, etc., and are often dismissed as debris and not actual artwork.  Anthony Adcock is a superb example of a Conceptual Realist. A Conceptual Realist is one who utilizes realism as a point of departure focusing on the essence of the subject matter rather than verisimilitude. Adcock creates his artwork by synthesizing the knowledge gleaned from three generations of builders, his comprehensive understanding of the trade, and an uncompromising studio practice dedicated to the advancement of realism. By combining his expert understanding of construction with the intellectual rigor of abstract painting via realism, Adcocks artwork oscillates between amazement and absurdity.   Opening Reception: Thurs, Sep 6, 6-8pm.

Artists & Mentors
Sep 04, 2018 -- Sep 29, 2018
‘Artists & Mentors’ 2018 Exhibition Celebrating Artists Who Teach, Inspire and Enrich Students’ Lives The Painting Center, Chelsea September 4-29, 2018 Opening Reception September 6 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Artists & Mentors is a group exhibition on view at The Painting Center in New York City featuring twelve painters who also teach and inspire students in the classroom. Golden Artist Colors began working with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers nearly five years ago with an objective to recognize and showcase the talent of artists across the US who have also been recognized as mentors of their students–youth who recently received awards through Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Annually since 2015, GOLDEN has supported the opportunity for three visual arts educators– chosen in conjunction with the Alliance and the National Art Education Association–to take part in a two-week residency at the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation Residency Program, located just down the road from Golden Artist Colors in upstate New York. These twelve artists recognized in Artists & Mentors are some of the best of the best amongst art teachers in the US. Artists featured in the exhibition are Isaac Alarid Pease, NM Rebecca Buchanan, OR Jessica Clark, NC Geeta Dave, LA Cristina Gonzalez, NM Jeffrey Deane Hall, VA Lucy Harackiewicz, MA Kevin Kelly, KS Claire Lerner, CA Brian Payne, OK Elizabeth Stainton, NY and Bryan Wilson, NC. “What is exceptionally clear is that art teachers with a continuing artistic practice inspire students to achieve well beyond what the typical art students is able to accomplish,” said GOLDEN CEO, Mark Golden. “These teachers who have been honored with a Residency all have teaching credentials that would be the envy of any school. Artists & Mentors seeks to honor these teaching artists with the recognition that their work deserves. It is no small feat to both teach a full-time schedule in our schools and to carry on a studio practice. The show, curated by Jim Walsh, and with support from The Painting Center, allows us to share the talent of these amazing artists and educators.” The show will be on view from September 4 through September 29, 2018 at The Painting Center, 547 West 27th Street, Suite 500, New York, N.Y. An opening reception will be held on September 6 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the public is invited to attend. A full color catalog of the paintings in Artists & Mentors will be available.

Still
Sep 04, 2018 -- Sep 29, 2018
FIRST STREET GALLERY is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Edmond Praybe. Still, a collection of recent paintings and drawings, will run from September, 4–29. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, September 8 from 3-5 pm. The works in Still, comprised mostly of still-life and interior paintings, investigate the visual intricacies of cluttered spaces and complex groupings of objects and attempt to find unity within the disarray. The balance between openness and inevitability within the image is the defining current that runs through Praybe’s new works. The spaces, objects and figures manifest throughout different paintings in the exhibition, seen from new angles and combined in ever evolving stagings. As the paintings morph and develop so too do the actual set-ups objects and figures are moved around, some added some taken out and different viewpoints are employed. All of these fluctuations, the process of looking, reacting and revising, serve to keep the paintings from closing in on themselves before a unified expression is brought to resolution. In these new works objects are recast in multiple paintings, providing the artist with a visual history and vocabulary. Many objects have a personal connection to the artist while some are chosen purely for their aesthetic appeal. Some objects were gifts, some inherited, some found in thrift stores, yard sales, in the woods or abandoned houses, all chosen for their qualities of visual interest: color, shape, texture, narrative implications and evocations. Flowers, figures, glassware, mugs, tv tables, bones, beehives, furniture, insects, easels, paintings, plates, bowls, fruit, bird nests, sea shells, pitchers, vases, plants, turtle shells, patterned fabric, frames and laptop computers bring together elements of the natural world and the manufactured man-made world existing in some kind of designed equilibrium. Praybe’s curiosity about nature, collecting remnants of plants, trees, bones and other found objects from walks in the woods, combines with his day to day suburban existence in these paintings. The mix of found, collected and bought objects unite visually as the tactility of the observed forms translates into the tactile quality of the paint ultimately relaying the feeling of an integrated world. Praybe is honing in on the quiet act of contemplation that occurs during the process of observing then synthesizing and recording the visually perceived world into paint. Still is Edmond Praybe’s second solo exhibition at First Street Gallery. His work has been shown in galleries across the U.S. including Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, OH, Stephen F. Austin State University Gallery in TX, Ridderhof Martin Gallery in VA, Prince Street and Bowery Galleries in New York City, The Mitchell Gallery at St. John’s College and The Maryland Federation of Art’s Circle Gallery in Annapolis, MD. Y Art Gallery in Baltimore, MD and Benfield Gallery in Severna Park, MD also regularly show his work. Praybe has works in many private collections as well as the collection of the National Parks Service. Notable art critics Jed Pearl and David Cohen have included Praybe’s work in juried exhibitions. In 2012 he was the recipient of the Hohenberg Travel Grant for the study of art in Europe. Praybe currently teaches painting at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, MD. He received his BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art in 2004 and his MFA from the New York Studio School in 2012.

Symbiotic: Form & Color
Sep 06, 2018 -- Oct 06, 2018
DENISE BIBRO FINE ART is pleased to announce an exhibition of Danny Morgan’s paintings in its Gallery II space, September 6 – October 6, 2018. Morgan, originally from Kentucky, has spent most of his life in Cincinnati and Florida as a successful artist and musician. Prior to becoming a professional at both he received a degree for art at Kentucky University and subsequently taught art. His calling for music and art beckoned him to create his own unique and individual path. After having his own successful band and playing with the infamous Beach Boys he settled his roots in Sanibel, Florida. Danny Morgan’s work is full of cords of color, like the music he loves and plays. He is inspired by the beat and temper of music as well as the nature that surrounds him. His palette is primarily light and airy. His compositions are often comprised of juxtapositioned areas of color. The nuances and trajectory of his compositions are refined by various stylized brush strokes. All of his works resonate a fine sense of place, time and experience. Morgan’s mission is not to dictate the meaning of the chords in his compositions, but is to create a colorful, visceral scored experience for the viewer. His paintings depict transitional space between music and color coming together into visual form. The viewer interprets his or her own intellectual, emotional, and visceral response to each work. There will be a reception for the artist, Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm. The artist will be present. This will be Danny Morgan’s third solo exhibition at Denise Bibro Fine Art. He has shown in several galleries in Florida and most recently had a solo show at the Indian Hill Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. He has also taught Fine Arts in Ohio. For information and/or images please contact Denise Bibro Fine Art, 212-647-7030 or at info@denisebibrofineart.com

Me Too: Recent Paintings
Sep 06, 2018 -- Oct 06, 2018
DENISE BIBRO FINE ART is pleased to announce the sixth solo exhibition of the 2018-9 season with Don Perlis: ME TOO, Recent Paintings, September 6th – October 6th, 2018. In many crossroads in our history, artists have played an important, integral role in provoking audiences to review, discuss and act on current state of affairs our government and our social mores. This exhibition is Perlis’ pictorial commentary on today’s political and social environment and its pundits. As in the past there have been times that require thought and action. These are one of those times. Don Perlis’ recent paintings of super heroes both from the ordinary to the sublime, trump antics and common everyday buffoons provoke the viewer to ponder our current state of affairs. Including what some people idealize and what is daunted in Social Media. Scenes reflect disparate worlds of have and have nots, the sublime vs. the vulgar, the fantastical to the ordinary. The area of Time Square is one of its’ stages which is recognized as “so New York, so American.” These beautifully rendered paintings depict vignettes that reflect a world that is colorful, bombastic, full of both promise and despair. Perlis pushes the dialogue button. It’s arts way to preserve the right for the democratic values of discourse. Perlis has had numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has exhibited at the Lancaster Museum of Art, PA, the Heckscher Museum of Art, NY, and the Hoyt Center for the Arts, Newcastle, PA. Among the many institutions he has exhibited are the Whitney Museum of American Art and National Academy of Design in New York, where he is a member and others. His works are in numerous private and public collections including the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the Kingsborough Community College, NY, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, MN, and the Colby Museum of Art, ME to name a few. He has had received various fellowships and honors, and has been published in The New York Times, Art in America, the New York Magazine, and others. There will be a reception for the artist, Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm. The artist will be present.

Rubens Ghenov : Aft Key
Sep 06, 2018 -- Oct 06, 2018
Morgan Lehman is delighted to present recent paintings by Rubens Ghenov in the artist’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. This show, entitled Aft Key, includes three bodies of work made between 2017 and 2018, which take as their subject the late Spanish poet Angelico Moranda’s interests in ideas of time, ontology, sound, and mantras. Here, Aft is to be read as a shortened version of the preposition, after, which, for Moranda, denotes the middle stage of descent (or diagonal time). Diagonal time can be thought of as the line that links the metaphysical world of the vertical (concerning the intellectual, conscious, cosmic) with the horizontal (considering the terrestrial, pausal, dreamlike), within the right triangle structure that informs Moranda’s poetry and meditative practice. Aft is thus both between space but also beyond, converging backward in time to the present in a cyclical triangular motion. In this way, form leads to concept and concept back into form, as Ghenov mines the rich philosophy of the poet to create his own lyrical, mystical paintings. Opening reception will take place September 6th from 6-8pm.

Carlos Rodriguez Cardenas: Geographical Mind in the Architecture of Landscape
Sep 13, 2018 -- Oct 13, 2018
OPENING RECEPTION: September 13th, 6:30 - 8:30 Carlos Rodriguez Cardenas Geographical Mind in the Architecture of Landscape September 13 – October 13, 2018 In his native Cuba during the 1980s, Carlos Rodriguez Cardenas developed an influential style of painting that deployed irony, sly humor, and a shrewd parody of High-Modernist sophistication to mock the conceits of official state-sponsored imagery and utopian sloganeering. In Geographical Mind in the Architecture of Landscape Cardenas turns a discerning eye toward the United States, delivering a body of work that seems at first glance like a love letter to the American landscape and to New York City—his adopted home of many years now—yet gradually reveals an undercurrent of wariness and disquiet about our national myths and pretensions. Alongside this is an extended meditation on his own migrations, and on the endless tension between the fundamental human desire for stability and the inevitability of flux in our lives. References to monumental constructions, modern technology, and utopian aspirations have always been a cornerstone of Cardenas’s visual language. In these works, he uses such imagery to powerful effect, juxtaposing bold, semi-abstracted renditions of cityscapes and sea vessels with picturesque antique views of landmark buildings and collaged insets from U.S. maps the combination evokes the grand narratives of progress and power that have always informed this country’s collective self-image, yet also makes these stories seem quaint, or even wistfully naive. The centerpiece of the show (The Journey, 2007-2018) is a frieze-like row of paintings with a squarely frontal view of tiny stylized skyscrapers and ships perched atop a massive wall of gargantuan bricks and gloomily featureless towers. The effect is something like the monotonous terrain of an old-school side-scrolling video game, suggesting perpetual travel with neither rest nor peace. Yet the varied light-blue shades of the bricks suggest expanses of open sky and sea, hinting at the possibility of freedom and escape from the strictures of law and dogma. The Bunker (2015) hints at similar notions via a pentaptych depicting a gargantuan seaborne ark/metropolis, while Geographical Mind (2018) combines a clock face, compass points, and small circular insets from road maps of the U.S., Cuba, and Mexico, referencing the age-old human drive to dominate nature’s unruliness (and our own) with artificially imposed systems and structures. Cardenas understands classic visual metaphors for our cities and landscapes well, and he quotes them to great effect. His minimal, stylized buildings are strongly reminiscent of works by other artists we associate with New York in its modernist heyday, ranging from the Precisionist Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth to Georgia O’Keefe and even Joseph Cornell. Small rectangular patches in the diptych American Landscape (2015) recall the vast, clear skies in Ed Ruscha’s Hollywood and Standard Station paintings and the grand-scale mythologizing of the American landscape of the Hudson River School painters. The evocation of these great Modernist chroniclers of the American myth adds a poignant twinge to Cardenas’s status as the perpetual outsider looking in.

Just Beneath The Surface
Sep 13, 2018 -- Oct 19, 2018
There is a narrative undercurrent to Stephanie London’s still life paintings that give a sense that her arranged objects are like actors on a stage. Sourcing her objects from thrift stores, eBay, or flea markets, they have an inherent nostalgic history to them, and as they are used again and again in her paintings, they become a familiar cast of characters. London’s prolonged study of these objects is apparent in their composition, for there is not only evidence of a finely attuned observation to how they work with one another in light, color, shape, and mood, but the space around and between them bristles with a mysterious energy over how they may relate in their uncanny juxtaposition. This intuitive process lends a sense of London’s hand and subconscious, giving the scene a touch of surrealism. The paintings are quietly expressive, with a somber palette contrasted with an emphasis on light. A minimalist by nature, London is pushing herself with this latest body of work to imbue more complexity into her scenes with more objects and greater atmospheric details. Rather than placing these objects in an ambiguous ground, she is creating a specific place. With some of the paintings on view in Just Below the Surface, she uses segments of Picasso’s “Guernica” as a background. A favorite painting of London’s, this enables her to further understand and pay tribute to the painting, as well as to create a contrast between the bold, intense, and active imagery with the more tranquil scene and delicate objects.

Josette Urso’s paintings are driven by a sense of urgency. Working from her observations of her surrounding environment, her inspiration is in a constant state of flux as the light, weather, and elements of any given scene changes as she works. Whether working in plein air during her travels or looking out over her sweeping view of Brooklyn from her studio, Urso responds to the shapes, forms, light, and experience of place and seeks to capture that in heavily worked, frenetic abstraction.

Richard Finkelstein: New, Used, Rare and Out of Print
Sep 13, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
Robert Mann Gallery presents a new body of work by Richard Finkelstein in his third solo show with the gallery, New, Used, Rare and Out of Print. Known for his cinematic world of miniature dioramas, Finkelstein explores a new direction in his work that focuses on the manipulation and transformation of books. He investigates the materiality of the books as he documents their reactions against water, paint, folding and cutting. The photographs in this series were both intended and unintended. While working with the texts related to the myth by Ovid, Joyce and others, Finkelstein initially immersed them in coffee to age them and have them appear as ancient texts. But as the first books dried, the pages curled and molded themselves into new forms, assumed other shapes and then hardened, causing Come Wander With Me to emerged. The books transformed into a sculptural medium. They had lost their specific identity as the words became distorted or even hidden therefore erasing the past message of the books. The stories and titles which caused the artist to select them were no longer identifiable.  The books were defiant to the techniques. A Fine Balance shows the artist’s intent to merge two books harmoniously together, but the yellow peeks through with dominance, pushing against the artist’s configuration. Finkelstein found books, new, used, rare and out of print, Bibles and encyclopedias, books of pornography, marbled antiquarian texts, childrens books, graphic novels and literary classics and turned them into something uncanny, something the viewer discovers used to be a familiar object, but is now morphed into a new story created by the books themselves. Prior to devoting himself to his artistic practice, Finkelstein maintained a successful career as a trial lawyer, an experience that can be seen as to have influenced his art. His photographs, paintings, drawings, animations and video installations have been shown in various venues. Born in Philadelphia in 1950, Finkelstein lives and works in New York City. Opening Reception: Thu, Sept 13, 6-8pm.

Sep 13, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
Required Reading is a collection of classic photographs, featuring works by artists including Diane Arbus, Louis Faurer, Lee Friedlander, Marcia Resnick and Weegee, that capture the wonder of reading. Within the written page are adventures, mysteries, love and loss, where people can become engrossed with experience created by the author’s captivating world. Just as the books of Finkelstein’s work reacted back to him, as readers, we have emotional responses to stories. In those moments of reaction, these artists capture the laughter or quite reflection of a reader immersing themselves in a good book. Opening Reception: Thu, Sept 13, 6-8pm.

Two Artists, Two Exhibitions: Eric Fertman and Erika Rothenberg
Sep 13, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present the work of Eric Fertman in his sixth solo exhibition with the Gallery from 13 September to 20 October 2018. Concurrently, in an unabashed attempt to sway the Midterm Elections, we will install Erika Rothenbergs seminal House of Cards in Gallery II. A reception, rally (?), for the artists will be held Thursday evening 13 September from 6 to 8 PM. Doppelgangers clad in Freudian slips line the walls of the Gallery like a tiny wooden army of the psyche. These are the creatures that populate our waking dreams each conjectured to reflect some aspect of the dreamer. Blocked feet tether surreal bodies to terra firma, wisps of smoke and tufts of hair sprout from misplaced appendages. Like a modern day Geppetto, Eric Fertman skillfully imparts a humanity and emotional range to a simple block of wood. There is a familiarity to these strange apparitions, we experience both a horror and a comfort in that flash of recognition as the dream fades and the aspect of the dreamer is revealed, warts and all. Eric Fertman was born in 1974 in Boston, MA. He received a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art and Science and has exhibited nationally, with solo shows at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem, NC The Kemper Museum in Kansas City, MO and in a two-person presentation at Time Equities, Inc., NYC for The Art-in-Buildings Program. Reviews of his work have appeared in Artforum, Harpers Bazaar, The New York Times and Sculpture Magazine among others. Erika Rothenberg makes satirical and political art dedicated to exposing American exceptionalism and its hubris, corruption, privilege, and prejudice. Her work pushes the envelope of acceptability and taste. In 1992, the Museum of Modern Art invited Rothenberg to have a one-person exhibition for which she created House of Cards, a series of hand-painted greeting cards. Arranged in sections such as Politics, The Economy, Racism, Religion, etc., the cards are an anthology of abominations, a compendium of ignorant slights and slurs, and a hilarious spin on the Hallmark card and its ilk. Eerily prescient today, and in light of the upcoming Midterm Elections, the cards reveal a brilliantly skewed take on the absurdity of life in America. The Gallery is pleased to bring House of Cards back to New York. Also included in the exhibition are Freedom of Expression Drugs, recently shown in Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s at the Hirshhorn Museum Misogynist/Feminist, a recent greeting card piece and America, A Shining Beacon to the World, a new church signboard edition. A native New Yorker, Erika Rothenberg lives and works in Los Angeles. Before becoming a full-time artist, she was the first woman art director at McCann-Erickson advertising agency in NYC. Her work has been exhibited at major art institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, New York Los Angeles County Museum of Art Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago Hirshhorn Museum, DC Documenta IX, Kassel, Germany and is in private and public collections. Rothenberg is also recognized for her public art installations, including Freedom of Expression National Monument, commissioned by Creative Time, and The Road to Hollywood in Los Angeles. The exhibition will be on view at the gallery located at 522 West 24 Street Tuesday to Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM.

Martine Gutierrez: Indigenous Woman
Sep 06, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
Martine Gutierrez Indigenous Woman September 6 – October 20, 2018 Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6–8pm Letter From The Editor: This is not a magazine about fashion, lifestyle, or celebrity. Indigenous Woman is an independent art publication dedicated to the celebration of Mayan Indian heritage, the navigation of contemporary indigeneity, and the ever-evolving self-image. It is a vision, an overture, a provocation. The word “indigenous” here is used to refer to native cultures from a particular region, but also as a synonym for the natural and innate. It signifies a real, authentic, native-born woman. There was a time when I believed there was no such title for me to claim. I was driven to question how identity is formed, expressed, valued, and weighed as a woman, as a transwoman, as a latinx woman, as a woman of indigenous descent, as a femme artist and maker? It is nearly impossible to arrive at any finite answers, but for me, this process of exploration is exquisitely life-affirming. In working to convey my own fluid identity—an identity that brides the binaries of gender and ethnicity—I aim in part to subvert cis, white, Western standards of beauty and raise questions about inclusivity, appropriation, and consumerism. From behind long lashes and lacquered lips, I use the fashion magazine’s glossy framework to play with perception. I employ mannequins, advertorials, and indigenous textiles to reassert control over my own image. Mine is a practice of full autonomy—all photography, modeling, styling, makeup, hair, lighting, graphic design, and product design I have executed myself. Indigenous Woman marries the traditional to the contemporary, the native to the post-colonial, and the marginalized to the mainstream in the pursuit of genuine selfhood, revealing cultural inequities along the way. This is a quest for identity. Of my own specifically, yes, but by digging my pretty, painted nails deeply into the dirt of my own image I am also probing the depths for some understanding of identity as a social construction. It is also my ambition to forge a connection between the art world and my community. While it is my desire for Indigenous Woman to provide some sustenance for my fellow millennial nonbinary transwomen of color, I sincerely hope that all audiences will find the work compelling and captivating. I believe it is possible to create an empathetic and supportive society, but it requires that we all educate ourselves, that we learn to be allies and activists who understand our own privilege. Mutual understanding has the power to change the world. Editor-in-Chief Martine Gutierrez Martine Gutierrez (b. 1989 Berkeley, CA) received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012. She draws from eclectic media, acting as subject, artist and muse. Through performance, photography and film, Gutierrez documents her personal transformations by embodying various imagined personas. Gutierrez has been included in exhibitions at Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY Lowe Gallery at Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY MOCA GA, Atlanta, GA and Vincent Price Art Museum, Monterey Park, CA.

David Row: Counter Clockwise
Sep 06, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
Loretta Howard Gallery is pleased to present David Row: Counter Clockwise opening Thursday, September 6th, 6:00-8:00 PM, through Saturday, October 20th, 2018. Within his new series of work, Row continues to investigate the dynamic of the irregularly shaped panel with architectural precision, heavily worked surfaces of oil paint and complex internal structures. The predominant energy and motion is countered by an underlining geometric logic. The dynamic ellipse or x shapes are completed by the viewer’s eye outside of the picture plane thus pushing boundaries by activating the surrounding space. These paintings are primarily frontal but can also be read as spatial and as such once again activate perception. Row’s color and paint are luxurious– rich deep blues and dense blacks are contrasted by thin lines of vivid bright lines demarcating junctures. David Row was born 1949 in Portland, Maine. He studied at Yale University from 1968-1974 receiving both a BA and an MFA. There he met the painter Al Held who would become a lifelong friend and mentor. Immediately following his studies he moved to New York City where he became a prominent member of a new young generation of artists including Peter Halley, Mary Heilmann, and David Reed. His works are in the permanent collections of museums worldwide including: The Ackland Art Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, the JP Morgan Chase Collection and the Portland Museum of Art. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Grant in Painting (1987) and the Isaac N. Maynard Prize for Painting from the National Academy Museum, in New York, (2008). A fully illustrated catalogue will be published as well as video conversation with John Zinzer.

Tracy Rocca: Public Lands
Sep 06, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
Opening Reception with the artist Thursday, September 6th, 6-8 pm Winston Wachter Fine Art, New York is excited to announce Public Lands, its third solo exhibition by painter Tracy Rocca. The ethereal, abstract works are based on landscapes, and are composed of blended moments around a central point of misty white light. Through these dreamy, large-scale paintings, Rocca draws the viewer in to a meditative focus on nature. Rocca bases her most recent work on family visits to National Parks with her husband and children. Each painting is based on photographic source images, from which Rocca pulls color themes and basic composition. She reflects on a specific time and place over a period of several months in her studio in New Mexico, bathed in natural sunlight. Employing slow-drying natural pigments and materials, Rocca constructs her paintings through many thin glazes of color. These layers create a sense of depth, and an impressionistic, glowing light. Even as the works blur toward abstraction, they often maintain a clear horizon line, and convey meditative memories of nature. Public Lands explores National Parks as the incredible, planned spaces that they are. Created to preserve and portray the beauty in nature, every hike at a National Park is designed to lead someplace incredible. They are wildly popular destinations, yet Rocca’s work strips away the human involvement. In these paintings, Rocca reflects not just on majestic places in nature, but on personal moments with family. She encourages mindfulness, and hopes that these works inspire preservation and care for these spaces for future generations. At its core, Public Lands is about presence, and invites viewers to reflect on their own quiet moments in beautiful places. Tracy Rocca currently lives and works in Albuquerque, NM. Rocca received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Washington and her Post Baccalaureate from the California College of the Arts Extended Education. She has shown her work internationally and is represented in many private and public collections. For further information, please contact Amanda Snyder at asnyder@winstonwachter.com or 212-255-2718

What is the Color of Scent? will be on view September 6 - October 27, 2018 with an opening reception on Thursday, September 6 from 6 – 8 pm. What is the Color of Scent? transforms the gallery space into an ethereal world in which the viewer journeys through an enchanted universe altered by vision, sound, and scent. On view will be Loher’s signature Videosculptures, Videoportals, Videoplanets, Videonests and Videotables. Expanding on the artist’s exploration into the delicate relationship we have with our ecological environment, Loher’s Videosculptures are inspired by nature and its self-organizing systems. Whimsical videos are embedded in physical objects that mimic organic forms, such as pollen and corals, without hiding the artifice of the technical process. Hand blown glass holds microcosms of beauty and complexity that capture entire alternate worlds and realities. Reminiscent of bubbles and eggs embedded in hand woven abstracted bird’s nests, the organic glass shapes are a poetic commentary on the fleeting nature of time, impermanence, and the natural elements and processes of the world. The deconstruction of the rectangular format of traditional video plays a central role in the intention of Loher’s fantastic environments. The artist breaks away from the canon of video art by liberating video from the constraints of its standard or traditional form. Video is not limited by its medium - it instead becomes a portal into a magical world. Loher’s videos reveal movements of magical beings that create hypnotic mind and eye-bending Mandalas exploring the elements Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Love. The creatures of her videos act in harmony to evoke awareness of nature’s beauty and fragility, and reveal the secret lives of flora and fauna. The dancers assemble into provocative questions on screen, engaging the viewer in a rhetorical conversation that urges them to explore the complex balance between humans, nature and the consequences of contemporary environmental issues. The visual collages are generated using a combination of elaborate, choreographed dance pieces overlaid with footage taken from the artist’s international travels to the Peruvian Amazon and India. Inspired by cultural traditions, each element represents a mandala, and forms a blueprint of the exhibition. Unique scent combinations accompany each element, engendering a subtle yet powerful scentscape that complement Loner’s fully immersive, sensorial experience. At the apex of the exhibition, all five elements and Mandalas come together to form a miniature universe consisting of Videoplanets of various sizes floating in the two-story atrium of the gallery. Videos representing the five Mandalas form a spiritual representation of the universe and are projected onto the Videoplanets, animating the perfectly round spheres and unifying the elemental themes of the exhibition. Loher’s work is conceived in a collaborative process with her team. For the present exhibition, artist Tansy Kaschak creates unique aroma combinations to accompany each element, engendering a subtle ‘scentscape’ that complements Loher’s fully immersive sensorial experience. Born in Zurich, Switzerland, Loher studied art in Geneva and Basel. Since 2004, she has lived in New York City. Her unique video objects have won her numerous awards, and now form part of several significant collections. Loher’s work has appeared internationally in many solo and group exhibitions including: Core Club, New York, USA (2017) Bruce Museum, Greenwich, CT, USA (2016) C24 Gallery, New York, NY, USA (since 2013), Anya Tish Gallery, Houston, TX (since 2009) Gallery Andres Thalmann, Zurich, Switzerland (since 2010) NBMAA, New Britain, CT, USA (2015) TelFair Museum, Savannah, Georgia, USA (2015) World Expo Museum, Shanghai, China (2014) Figge Art Museum, Davenport, Iowa (2014) MuBE, Museu Brasileiro da Escultura, Sao Paulo, Brazil (2012) Venice Architecture Biennale, Venice, Italy (2010) MAXXI Museum, Rome, Italy (2010) United Nations Pavilion, Shanghai Expo, China (2010) (Biennale Chongqing, China (2009) Siggraph Asia, Yokohama, Japan (2009) Art Digital, Moscow, Russia (2005) and the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2005).

HALF NAKED: Featuring RAY TURNER

JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: HALF NAKED: Featuring RAY TURNER FALL 2018 Artist’s Reception: Thursday, September 13th, 2018 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by September 1st, 2018 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. | New York, NY 10011 Contact:  JoAnne Artman Telephone:  949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com HALF NAKED Half-Naked adjective | half·na·ked  1. being without clothing or covering nude: 2. bare of any covering, overlying matter, vegetation, foliage, or the like: naked fields. 3. bare, stripped, or destitute: The trees were suddenly naked of leaves. 4. without the customary covering, container, or protection: a naked sword a naked flame. 5. without carpets, hangings, or furnishings, as rooms or walls. 6. unassisted by a microscope, telescope, or other instrument: visible to the naked eye. Origin of Naked: Middle English Old English before 900 Middle English naked(e), old English nacod cognate with Dutch naakt, German nackt, Gothic naqths akin to Old Norse nakinn, Latin nudus, Greek gymnos, Sanskrit nagnas Ray Turner’s work presents a duality between a forceful primality in his treatment of material, and a more cerebral retrospection of the range of human emotion that the work holds within. In Turner’s earlier series, the concept of identity was explored through the act of transformation through active participation, in the space between observer and observed as the work became an active channel. In his new work, Turner has put his emphasis on the physicality of the mark making process itself as a means of representation, further breaching the boundaries of the traditional modes of portraiture. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Half Naked, a showing of Turner’s most recent paintings and prints focused on exploring the dichotomies behind the idiom “half-naked” that powerfully echoes our own discomfort when confronted with the illusions of safety behind all social constructs through the viscerality of the painting medium. In Half Naked, Turner takes his explorations into the emotive potential of the portrait to the next level, as he presents a group of works that refuse to be categorized by exclusion. From work to work, Turner presents a didactic deconstruction of the visual semantics behind recognizability of form through a parsing of the gray space of the half-formed, half-naked. The representational qualities of the works rely on Turner’s mastery of form and the vast range of human facial expression. Through slightest suggestions, Turner is able to utilize the properties of his medium to create images that capture and attune to emotional states. Created as an organic process of fluid, painterly malleability, the paintings are reminiscent of the dextrous exaggerations of Francis Bacon, the mastery of form and the grotesque of Francisco Goya, and the wide, luscious strokes of John Singer Sargent. The new body of work further explores the concept of identity through materiality and the idea of formation by utilizing materials that emphasize the painting process such as translucent mylar, acetate, vellum, and duralene. Chance, discovery, and intentionality are an integral part of Turner’s working process as he experiments with new elements such as the semi-opaqueness of mylar and duralene - materials he was initially inspired to use through the study of old anatomy illustrations. Assembly and display as part of the presentation process are another important step in Turner’s methodology as a point of visual guidance via juxtaposition. RAY TURNER (b. 1958, Stockton, California) lives and works in Pasadena, California where he earned his BFA from Art Center College of Design. His work has been showcased in exhibits throughout the country as well as in museums and galleries in San Francisco, New York, Miami, Chicago, Boston, and Berlin. Ray Turner’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!

J.B. Murray: Eagle Crossed the Sun: Visionary Works
Sep 13, 2018 -- Nov 03, 2018
J.B. (John Bunion) Murray was born in 1908 in Glascock County, Georgia. In the history of African American non-mainstream artists Murray falls into the second generation, born after the 19th century and before 1950. His important graphic abstractions come from a unique place in the annals of this art. His generation dealt with a harsh variation of survival for black Americans in the South. Many of the problems of that time, like Jim Crow laws that were not struck from the books until 1965, continued into the present despite institutional and popular denial. It was an era of poverty and racism exacerbated by the disillusionment of black Americans who fought as victorious heroes in the World Wars only to return to the same ugly visage of the Jim Crow years as when they left. The church attended by black Americans at that time was not the same as the white church. Black Pentecostalists were possessed by the Holy Spirit and moved in ways closer to the Old Religion than to the mainstream church. The banning of drums in the 19th century had moved rhythms into the body itself as manifested in the ring shouts, expressed by clapping, tambourines, cymbals, guitars and the rhythmic breaking up of language. J.B. Murray was always spiritual. He was a church-going Pentecostalist who ultimately became more and more involved in a cosmic battle between good and evil. He believed some people were saved and some were not, and the battle to save those who were tormented by evil became the subject of his Spirit-inspired drawings. His beliefs were too radical even for the local parishioners. He was asked to leave his community church. Soon after he was institutionalized because of his fervid praying and blessing, but was released within a short period of time having been diagnosed not insane. Now validated, he was allowed back in church again, even delivering a sermon or two. Illiterate, he handed out scraps of paper covered in his spirit writing given to him by an ecstatic experience that changed his life forever. In the late 1970’s he received this vision in his garden while hosing his plants, in a flood of buttery yellow and rainbow light refracted by the waters that coated the world around him and covered his skin in gold. He looked up and saw a visionary eagle cross the hot yellow sun. Clearly the intensity of these colors was an integral part of his vision and subsequent art making. Events led to his being given access to better artistic materials than he could find previously. He developed a unique style in which, through color and line, he drew the intense language given to him by the Spirit, which he read by looking through a bottle of well water. On paper and board he fought the battle for the Soul of Man. He drew with both hands. His process was not only the mechanical act of drawing, he fought for the salvation of souls with each mark . The drawings are living records of this visionary struggle. The natural abstraction comes from Murray’s burning need to communicate a moral standing in his own cohesive language. Murray died in 1988. His work is in major museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Harlem Studio Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the High Museum of Art, The Menil Collection, and the American Folk Art Museum. Cavin-Morris Gallery is honored to represent the family estate with these rich dynamic evocations of man’s ancient spirit. Our exhibition will present three phases of Murray’s work, including three early pieces on cash register scroll.

Shang Yang: New Works
Sep 15, 2018 -- Nov 10, 2018
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening on September 13, 2018 of Shang Yang: New Works (September 13 – November 10, 2018). The exhibition will be held in two locations, in Chelsea and at ArtFarm, Salt Point, NY. Born in 1942 in Hubei province, China, Shang Yang was nearly forty years old when he first won wide acclaim with the painting Boatmen of the Yellow River that he submitted for his postgraduate degree at the Hubei Academy of Fine Arts, Wuhan. As with so many of his countrymen, the tumultuous political history of China that coincided with the leadership of Mao Zedong, not least the chaos of the Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1976, led to a belated start for his professional career. With this painting he abandoned the Socialist Realist style that prevailed in China at the time and embarked on a career of restless experimentation that continues until the present day. Shang Yang was less affected than artists of a younger generation by the stylistic experimentation associated with the ‘85 New Wave, the wide-spread proliferation of artist associations that occurred in China in response to the influx of information regarding contemporary art, literature and philosophy in the West during the 1980s. However, in the late 1980s and early 1990s he entered a brief period of stylistic polymorphism. The most important of these phases occurred in 1988-1989 when he executed a group of abstract paintings titled States in which the focus was on the nature of the materials. In 1992 he painted Great Landscape, a stylistically hybrid commentary on the way in which the environment in China was being affected by rapid urbanization and the unbridled development of capitalism. During a four year stay in Guangzhou from 1993 to 1997 where this social transformation was particularly evident, he developed health problems that he felt offered parallels to the sickness increasingly affecting the both the social and natural environment. Shang Yang’s landscapes became increasingly tormented, the omnipresence of volcanoes welling up inside seemingly stable outer forms representing the powerful forces. An important development occurred in 2002 when Shang Yang painted Dong Qichang Project - 2, a large horizontal triptych that reflects on the degradation of the environment. The name “Dong Qichang” refers to a celebrated Ming dynasty painter and theoretician who played an important role in codifying the history of Chinese painting from its beginnings. Progressing from left to right, a mountainous landscape in the style of Dong Qichang contrasts with a bleaker landscape in the central panel and an artificially generated landscape on the right. This was to be the first of a series of thirty-eight remarkably diverse large-scale paintings in which Shang continued his exploration of painterly effects and found materials. As the preface to an exhibition of smaller painting in 2012, Shang Yang wrote that “Over the years, I have recorded the weathered and collapsing scenery of our time through diaries and manuscripts.” Another turning point that is the immediate precursor of the works in the current exhibition occurred in 2012 when Shang Yang decided that Dong Qichang Project –33 was lacking in the tension that was a crucial aspect of his sprawling compositions. Over a period of two years, he dismantled it, retaining some elements in different locations in the composition and adding others, resulting in the eight-panel work Remaining Mountain. This was the precursor to further variations on this theme and the related series Remaining Water. Shang Yang’s deep concern with the deterioration of the physical environment – “Yes,” he has remarked, “I am absolutely pessimistic. There is a wide-spread recognition that global warming is undeniable” – is accompanied by restless innovation in his approach to the creation of works of art. Earlier in his career his major paintings were preceded by careful studies but as he gained confidence, he would allow the markings on the blank canvas to suggest which way he should go. “One has to be very self-confident to work like this. When you stand in front of a canvas without aby ideas, you must be very self-confident. For me it is not difficult because it is more about technical problems.” Although the two parts of Shang Yang’s first exhibition in New York and Salt Point are united thematically, they differ markedly in style and visual approach. As has always been the case, landscape and everything it stands for is the essential subject although now in the second decade of the twentieth century it is a landscape that has been hollowed out, debased by human greed and pride. “Why am I so angry?” he asked rhetorically, “Because in its preference for everything that is flashy and superficial, China is the most extreme example.” While Decayed Landscape - 2 and Decayed Landscape - 3 are somber reflections on the state of the environment, virtuoso displays of painterly virtuosity which contrast with strategically placed collaged elements, Decayed Books 1-4 testify to the decline of culture and political civility in these troubled times. At ArtFarm Shang Yang leaves behind not only the rudimentary forms of mountains and books but also easel painting and the application of pigment and other materials to a flat surface. Here the unifying concept is the cataract, the clouding of the vision that affects many people as they age. In the vertical Cataracts the film comprised of many different synthetic materials is ripped off the canvas and presented as an ineffective relic in a Plexiglas box. The cataracts have been peeled off, but this operation has not resulted in clarification of our vision. Cross-sections of cataracts as in Cataract – Large Section composed of impossible-to-identify mixtures of synthetic and organic materials, hang in front of the wall. Cataract –Unknown Object, fabricated from resin and cellphone, sits on the floor emitting a feeble light at unpredictable intervals. While the atmosphere in the New York section is agitated, in Salt Point it is calm and serene. After 1981 Shang Yang’s career followed an unusual course as his commitment to teaching and a professional career marked by numerous awards was distinguished by the development of a highly individual artistic practice that continues to surprise. Another unusual aspect of his career is that although he has participated in numerous international group exhibitions, he has largely resisted solo exhibitions with the exception of three held since 2009 in Beijing (2009 and 2012) and Suzhou (2013). Consequently, this will be his fourth. As a result, he is well known and highly respected in China by his peers and by a much younger generation of artists although he is not recognized to the extent that he should be in an international context. The current exhibition of Shang Yang’s most recent paintings and installations will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog with essays by John Tancock and Wang Min’an providing essential background for an understanding of these works and interviews with Shang Yang conducted by John Tancock and Christophe Mao. For more information, please contact the gallery at 212-414-1169 or cfa@chambersfineart.com. Please note that the Artfarm exhibition in Salt Point, NY is by appointment only.

About Faces, Places, Movers and Shakers
Sep 20, 2018 -- Nov 10, 2018
Using an algorithm which he calls 'synthese,' Paul Kolker transforms POTUS photographs from the news media and overlays them with the artist’s abstract halftone dot paintings. This exhibition serves as an experiment in the psychology of perception - studying how feelings of either adoration or animus about a painting’s subject matter may bias, either positively or negatively, the beholder's visual perception.

INSIDE by Adrien Broom
Sep 06, 2018 -- Nov 14, 2018
Adrien Broom is an image-maker and visual storyteller. As a photographer, fine artist and set designer, Adrien infuses a sense of magic and wonder into the images she creates. Broom uses the medium of photography to enact her artistic vision however she approaches it from a cinematic point of view, finding a location, sourcing material and building an environment for her actor to inhabit. Her artistic practice resembles the working methodology of Gregory Crewdson to a degree, but from a more sculptural and surreal direction. Her imagery has echoes of Tim Walker’s photography, with the fantastical compositions she creates. Whether she is building elaborate sets or relying on the beauty of the natural world, Broom creates images that are familiar, otherworldly and fantastical with a touch of foreboding. Stop by our Exhibition Opening! When: Thursday, September 6 Time: 6:00-8:00pm Come to our Artist Talk! When: Thursday, November 8 Time: 6:00-8:00pm Born in New Haven, Connecticut, Broom spent her childhood in Lyme, before moving to Boston in 1998 where she attended Northeastern University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Animation in 2002. Adrien continued her exploration of the fine arts at the SACI College of Art and Design in Florence in 2003, followed by studies of Fine and Decorative Art History at Christie’s, London lasting until 2006. Although she has taken some art classes at Rhode Island School of art and design, Broom prides her self on being a self-taught photographer. She now resides and works in Brooklyn, New York. Adrien’s work has been exhibited internationally and has been covered in publications such as the New York Times, Huffington Post and Smithsonian Magazine, among others.

Living Up to the Ideal of Democracy: Special Preview of Homeless Childrens Art Exhibition
Jul 26, 2018 -- Nov 28, 2018
The Actors Theatre Workshop (ATW) presents Living Up to the Ideal of Democracy, a special exhibition featuring artwork by students of its renowned Builders of the New World (BNW) extracurricular program for homeless children ages eight through 12. A special preview and reception will take place at the theatre on July 26, 2018 from 5:00 - 9:00 PM. The exhibit will officially open on October 11, 2018. Over 50 drawings and associated stories capture unlimited imagination through the children’s interpretations of BNW’s yearly theme - the ideals of American democracy. The welcoming exhibition provides respite from contentious social and digital landscapes through dynamic and colorful imagery symbolizing hope and freedom in “a more perfect Union.” In these illustrations, bald eagles swoop from the sky to fight crimes, American flags break chains representing racism and smiling Statues of Liberty exhibit trademark regal bearing. RSVP at https://www.actorstheatreworkshop.com/art-exhibit-2018/ Founder and Artistic Director Thurman Scott conceives BNW’s signature curriculum using theatre principles, as the students explore not only the effects of politics in their daily lives, but their honest and open desire to create a better world for all. These pieces of artwork also serve a larger purpose in developing the children’s self-esteem in overcoming various challenges within their familial, educational and social environments to become successful leaders and achievers in their communities. Additionally, ATW will hold a two-session BNW program in July as a precursor to their signature BNW holiday classes. The highlight of the July program is an exclusive field trip to Nickelodeon, where the students will present their original artwork and stories, as well as learn about careers in the media industry. Interested volunteer mentors may apply at https://www.actorstheatreworkshop.com/bnw-spring-2018/.

Shun Sudo: Innocent Forest
Sep 27, 2018 -- Oct 20, 2018
SHUN SUDO INNOCENT FOREST Exhibition dates: September 27 – October 20, 2018 Opening Reception: Thursday, September 27, 6-8pm Onishi Gallery, 521 W 26th Street, New York, NY 10001 Onishi Gallery is honored to present Innocent Forest, a stunning solo exhibition of pop paintings by artist Shun Sudo. Vividly depicting the fantastical animals and plants of an imaginary realm, Sudo creates images that explode off the canvas, reaching out to the viewer from an alternate reality of color and possibility. Based in Tokyo, Japan, Sudo has been deeply influenced by American pop culture throughout his career. After travels across the United States in his 20s, he returned to Japan in his 30s to begin work on paintings that allude to both his creative roots in traditional Japanese culture and contemporary street cultures of Western societies. Integrating both of these influences into his aesthetic sensibilities, Sudo created classic Japanese sumi-e brush stroke paintings covered by graffiti pop art to produce innovatively animated artwork that awakens the eye, mind, and spirit. In the series featured in this exhibition, Innocent Forest, Sudo references specific inspiration sources: Ito Jakuchu, a famous Japanese painter of the 18th century, and Akira Toriyama, a contemporary popular Japanese animation artist. Jakuchu illustrated scenes with imaginary birds, animals, flower and plants, merging this world with make-believe through bright colors and modern design. Toriyama draws influences from Disney animation to Chinese novels to Jackie Chan films, creating cartoonish characters, animals, and deities. Sudo’s current series pays particular homage to Jakuchu’s rooster and Toriyama’s animation worlds. Visit the Innocent Forest and you encounter a bright yellow rabbit covered with black vegetal designs and a pointed tail, a proud rooster figure wearing royal red booties and a decorative cape, puffed up petals jumping out from their flower centers, dripping ice cream cones and stuffed hamburgers floating off the corners of pages, and birds in flight, flowers, trees, and majestic mountains filling the backgrounds of these fantastical worlds. With spirited strokes and dynamic characters, Sudo guides you through his imaginary kingdom, parallel to our own reality, connecting both through tradition, passion, and creativity. For more information on the exhibition, please contact Nana Onishi at 212-695-8035, or by email at nana@onishigallery.com.

Hank Feeley: Recent Concoctions
Oct 02, 2018 -- Oct 27, 2018
“Baller blockin’ ain’t an option, that ain’t the purpose of my concoction. “ - “Hittin’ Curves” by Grits Hank Feeley returns to First Street Gallery with an exhibition of new work titled Recent Concoctions. This is Feeley in his classic non-sequitur mode. Paintings and mixed media concocted out of the grab bag of our lives, enhanced by the beauty of random musings. The works are lively and bright, and have a collage based visual approach involving multiple elements playing off one and other. For this exhibition Feeley has added the occasional fabric grace note to certain of the works. For example: “So? #2” features a contemporary grocery store take on the still life paintings of seventeenth century Dutch masters, but with a mysterious hand intruding from under the table and the Socratic question “So?” inscribed on a party balloon. The colorfully draped splash of an actual Dutch fabric on the otherwise unadorned right side completes the composition. Feeley has said “My compositions are aesthetically pleasing, at least to me.” A few quotes about Feeley’s work: “If Hank Feeley were not so strikingly original, I would say that he stands at the intersection of Magritte and Marvel Comics, but as it is, he has his own way of disorienting the viewer so we can see again, now with our perception refreshed.” - Billy Collins “The intensity of his style, combining imagery from popular culture, art history and advertising, with heady color, has something in common with surrealist Max Ernst’s description of his own work in collage: ‘A linking of two realities that by all appearances have nothing to link them, in a setting that by all appearances does not fit them.” - Ellen Fischer “ Hank Feeley’s work is batting 1000% with me. “ - Ed Paschke

ITOMARISM : Kaleidoscope
Oct 18, 2018 -- Dec 01, 2018
Mari Ito (Japan/Spain) first solo show in the United States. Japanese artist Mari Ito (Tokyo, 1980), who has been living in Barcelona since 2006, studied traditional Japanese painting at Joshibi University of Art and Design in Tokyo. In conceptual terms, her oeuvre is based on animism, which finds its expression in long standing Japanese techniques. Ito invites us to reflect on the origins of desire, on our most irrational and personal impulses. The Id or das Es (as Sigmund Freud would say) split off from the ego and the superego is the psychic —therefore the purest and most primitive— expression of our drives and aspirations. Itos delicately formed creations come to life as they unfold into themselves, permanently striving to make their way towards awareness in their on-going search for the root of desire, whatever its nature. Completely opposed forces that actually complement and react to one another are interpreted by Ito in the same way, for they have the same value and form a duality that exists in natural harmony. Tokyos Zeit-Foto Salon gallery represents Ito in Japan, alongside other artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Yuki Onodera and Daido Moriyama, while in Spain she has been working with Tatiana Kourochkina Galeria dArt since 2012.

Still Life
Oct 25, 2018 -- Dec 01, 2018
The minimalist lines in Daniel Brices paintings weave elegantly and awkwardly in and out of the geometric spaces that hes created by subtracting paint more than adding it. Vaguely white surfaces have been burnished with Brillo pads, sandpaper, whatever comes to hand, and are rich with incidence and history. Organic, soft lines start and disappear. They wander between old walls, around an ancient architectural space as the solidity of the line disappears into dreamy pentimenti. Brices paintings are subtle and intricate and are the result of a painstaking attention to detail. Although the paintings seem monochromatic, he uses color sparingly. Often a small band of rich color anchors a floating world. . Where the dark lines converge, as they sometimes do, they become blurred or they end abruptly as they hit the wall of a rectangular plane or the outer edge of the work itself. In any case, the lines need the viewer to complete them or connect them, to see beyond what is there to what is not there.

Throughout his almost four decade career, CRASH’s work has engaged with environments on a huge scale - ranging from his early murals on the sides of NYC subway trains in the 70’s, to more recent projects such as a large mural commission at Miami’s Hard Rock Football Stadium. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present the artist’s new body of work that continues this conversation around scope, scale, and environment, through a continued exploration of the spray paint medium. CRASH’s radiant, fluorescent palette cements his work firmly in the present as the artist works within a dialogue culled from classic pop culture, comic book and print references. A frequent collaborator, CRASH’s process is rooted within his identity as a Bronx-born graffiti artist, having come of age in the hip-hop fueled Bronx of the late 1970s. His distinct style made him an iconic part of the NYC visual landscape, while also pioneering a new age for graffiti in 1980 when he curated the pivotal “Graffiti Art Success for America” exhibition at Fashion MODA. In his new work he widens the scope in a gestural exploration of form and shape, with a continuously unfolding narrative that plays out over each surface, barely contained to the planes of the canvas. Whether on city streets or gallery walls, concrete or canvas, CRASH’s works are instantly recognizable. Continuously engaged in various projects and commissions his work is also part of numerous museum shows, with works in many permanent museum collections such as the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Brooklyn Museum (New York), Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (Scottsdale), and Stedeljik Museum (Amsterdam). CRASH’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!

“THE ART OF FASHION” Featuring JANE MAXWELL in the Main Gallery and PEDRO BONNIN in the Projects Space
Feb 14, 2019 -- Mar 31, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: “THE ART OF FASHION” Featuring JANE MAXWELL in the Main Gallery and PEDRO BONNIN in the Projects Space Winter/Spring 2019 Artists Reception: Thursday, February 14th, 2019 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by February 3rd, 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 THE ART OF FASHION In conjunction with New York Fashion Week, JoAnne Artman Gallery is proud to announce the opening of The Art of Fashion, featuring recent works by Jane Maxwell at the gallery’s New York location. Assorted works by artist Pedro Bonnin will also be on display in the gallery’s Projects Space. NYFW is a semi-annual, week-long, celebration of fashion and style where international fashion collections are shown to buyers, press, and the general public. Mixed Media artist Jane Maxwell and Photorealist painter Pedro Bonnin create work that emphasizes the movement of the human figure through space, including defining elements of fashion, style and design. Though Maxwell and Bonnin work in vastly different stylistic approaches and mediums, both artists find inspiration in the human form touching on universal themes of identity and perception through the lens of fashion. For Jane Maxwell, it is the suggestion of the figure and the space that it occupies which is the primary focus in many of her compositions. The ideas of personal agency, the feminine ideal, and body image are explored through Maxwell’s study of the body in motion. The silhouette is the primary mode of portrayal as the figures stride through undefined space, emphasizing line and movement. Maxwell utilizes found paper ephemera such as posters, prints, and other printed materials in her compositions, collaging on wood panels in an organic accumulation of color and texture. Remnants of particular phrases, letters, and dates are left intentionally whole, allowing for interpretation through juxtapositio n of image and text. In several instances, Maxwell utilizes the found printed matter in ways which imitate the hard-edged graphic look of branded apparel featuring logos or other signifying insignia, navigating the politics of identity, fast fashion, and advertising. Pedro Bonnin’s twisting figures appear suspended in animation as they are captured in the stillness of a vacuum, their features arrested in mid-action. The captured moment allows for uninterrupted, uninhibited study as the figures float, jump, and turn through the air in physical mimicry of the dynamic complexities of human relationships. Bonnin favors portraying real people, and his work explores a full range of both motion and emotion, playing on the reserved ideals of classical portraiture. Through a meticulous portrayal of clothing and accessories, Bonnin dissects the narratives of perception showing articles of status and fashion statements as markers of identity. Such details give a vivid sense of individuality and physical presence while the drama of each scene is emphasized by Bonnin’s use of a monotone background and a tight cropping of the picture plane. JANE MAXWELL (b. 1964) is a mixed media artist based in Boston, Massachusetts. Maxwell graduated with a BA in Literature from Middlebury College, studied mixed media at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston as well as at the deCordova Museum School in Lincoln, Massachusetts. PEDRO BONNIN (b. 1967, Cuernavaca, Mexico) lives and works in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Focusing on the figure, Bonnin takes inspiration from his study of Italian Masters in his handling of shadow and light, modeling of paint, and emphasis on individual character and personality.
