Introjection is a series of new sculptures by Gehard Demetz. The exhibitions title is taken from the psychoanalytic term for when a person unconsciously takes on behaviors or attributes of other people or of the surrounding world. Demetz's precisely handcrafted figures of children stand confidently on plinths--elevated above their natural stature, they confront adults at eye level with an introspective gaze.

Portal to Dreams, Elemental Realms, and Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
May 19, 2017 -- Jun 08, 2017
Agora Gallery ventures deep into the imagination this May with three group exhibitions of extraordinary range. Portal to Dreams collects six daring artists, several of whom are painters playing with the limits of colors and shape in abstraction. There is also a digital artist who creates uniquely slow-paced animations and another who riddles traditional narrative scenes with intriguing gaps. Elemental Realms brings together a select group of artists with the objective of interrogating texture, both within and on top of the painted surface. A few different participants put the medium of paint through its paces: dabbing it, tossing it, cracking it, and layering it. One artist combines acrylic with gold leaf to create a new kind of physical texture that enters the viewers space in a subtle way. In both of these shows, traditions are overturned and expectations are defied. Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography is an examination of the storytelling qualities of photography. Whether theyre using surreal compositions, extreme close-up, unnaturally saturated colors, or pointed symbolism, these artists take digital photography to new heights. All three exhibitions open May 19, 2017 and run through June 8, 2017 with a joint opening reception on May 25 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: May 19, 2017 June 8, 2017 Reception: Thursday, May 25, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_5_19_2017.aspx Featured Artists: The Portal to Dreams Ricardo Vivanco Stan Adard Carlos Puig Julio Lopez Vietri Alagir Mali Lasker Elemental Realms Donna Broder Bulsby Buzz Duncan Wojciech Tut Chechliski Iftah Geva Marlene Kurland Isabella S.

Endurance: New Works by Xie Xiaoze
Apr 06, 2017 -- Jun 17, 2017
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening on April 6th of Endurance: New Works by Xie Xiaoze. Born in Guangdong, China in 1966, Xie Xiaoze graduated from Tsinghua University and the Central Academy of Arts and Design, Beijing before moving to the United States and settling in Texas where he continued his studies in a very different environment. He is currently the Paul & Phyllis Wattis Professor in Art, Department of Art & Art History, Stanford University, California, USA. As a realist painter by vocation, early in his career Xie found a way to combine his passionate interest in Chinese history and current world events with more formal concerns by focusing on the materials stored in archives and library stacks as the subject matter of his paintings. During his career he has approached this subject matter in many different ways but it is paintings of libraries with which he is most closely associated. The first painting in the Library Western Books Series dates from 1993 but the theme has still not been exhausted. In late 1994 when he returned to China for the first time since moving to the United States, he began working on the Chinese Library Series which is also still ongoing. Ten years later in 2005 a change of emphasis began with the Museum Library Series in which the treatment of the photographic sources is generally more specific. The current exhibition includes paintings based on photographs that Xie took in libraries in Beijing, Kathmandu, New York, Oxford, New Haven, and Toronto. Unlike the German photographer Candida Hfer whose photographs of famous libraries concentrate on the splendid architectural surroundings created to house collections of books, Xie focuses on telling details, only rarely revealing the name of an author or title of a volume. A great deal is revealed, however, as he lingers on decaying bindings or more serious damage caused by historical events. In the 20th century Chinese libraries have suffered more than most, a fact treated with particular poignance in Xies Chinese Library series. Dramatic new additions to this theme are the works titled Through Fire Books that Survived the Anti-Japanese War of Resistance at Tsinghua University Nos. I, 2 and 3. After the Japanese invasion of China in 1937, Tsinghua University moved to the south of China and many books were gravely damaged. The partially burnt, scorched pages of these Chinese books and manuscripts attest equally to the long history of suffering caused by global conflicts in the twentieth century and to the constant risk of the effacement of historical memory whether caused by accident or deliberately. The ancient leather and vellum bound volumes depicted in paintings of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, University of Toronto and the Beinecke Rare Books & Manuscript Library are have also endured many centuries of turmoil and are often in a precarious state of preservation but they are now treasured and preserved in scholarly libraries. The prominence given to the metal shelving in The Morgan Library and Museum f 318 emphasizes the fragility of the books with their decaying bindings. As a painter, Xie is also a cultural historian, deeply aware of what he refers to as the vulnerability of culture, memory, and history and the seeming decline of printed matter today. The somber tonality and large scale of his paintings endows the volumes with a singular gravitas. He achieves a remarkable balance between detailed recording of the appearance of his inanimate subject matter books and manuscripts and an increasing delight in fluid brushwork and painterly effects that often verge on abstraction.

Paul Wackers: Early Settlers
May 11, 2017 -- Jun 17, 2017
Morgan Lehman Gallery is pleased to present Early Settlers, Paul Wackers third solo show with the gallery. Paul Wackers work provides a glimpse into an intimate world, where objects and abstractions coalesce into personal and historical narratives. Through the juxtaposition of natural and synthetic textures and objects both mundane and iconic, Wackers work acts as both a record of his own domestic routine and surroundings, and as a lens into collective human experience and historical change. Here the everyday and the universal find equal footing in their distillation into singular, evocative artifacts.

Apr 28, 2017 -- Jun 17, 2017
Massage the History records amateur dancers, whom Jamie found accidentally online, who freely engage the quotidian domestic scene with their own sexually suggestive movements. BB captures the semi-choreographed brawls of Southern Californian teens who mimic the movements seen on popular TV wrestling shows. Kranky Klaus documents the pagan Christmas celebration of the Krampus--a menacing devil/monster character--in the Alpine villages of Austria's Bad Gastein Valley where St. Nicolas leads participants costumed in horns and fur in a sanctioned ritual of harassment.

Jack McWhorter
May 23, 2017 -- Jun 17, 2017
The Painting Center is pleased to present Jack McWhorter: Slow Formations in the Main Gallery and Project Room. Jack McWhorters paintings in Slow Formations are snapshots of structures in flux or becoming. The central narrative is color coming into its own in response to other colors. The paintings start with the stratification of color and paint and then forms are organized through movement and repetition. Tom Wachunas writes that McWhorter establishes sets of marks, lines, and washes, often layered zigzags, diamond shapes, or lozenge units amid ghostly grids all separate yet inseparable. And essential to the impact of these images is the exhilarating expressivity of color. Call it chromatic drama. These integrated systems of gestural and chromatic configurations can allow all manner of associations. They might indicate tangible, scientific phenomena and structures in the natural world, or signal the subtler workings of life on less visible planes. Jack McWhorter received an M.F.A. from Kent State University in 1983. McWhorter was awarded fellowships to attend the Blossom Studio Art Program to study with Elmer Bischoff, Lynda Benglis, Adja Yunkers, Janet Fish, Walter Darby Bannard and Alex Katz. He has been a visiting artist at St. Luca School of Art & Architecture, Brussels, Belgium, The Walworth Barbour American International School in Tel Aviv, and for the Ohio Arts Council. His paintings and works on paper have been exhibited widely including solo and group exhibitions in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Columbus, Chicago, Flagstaff, New York, Ventura, New Orleans, Beijing, Chengdu, Shijiazhuang, St. Louis, Brussels, Leuven, Overijse, Paris, Glasgow, Tel Aviv and Siena. Since 2000, McWhorter has been Associate Professor of Painting and Coordinator of the Art Department at Kent State University at Stark. He lives and works in Akron with his wife and 2 sons. www.jackmcwhorter.com

Claire McConaughy: Still Air
May 23, 2017 -- Jun 17, 2017
The Painting Center is pleased to present Claire McConaughy: Still Air in the Main Gallery and Project Room. In the exhibition Still Air, Claire McConaughy describes her paintings as translations of scenes that have been shifted, the way a poet recalls an event and reconstructs it into words, metaphors and impressions. The paintings originate from actual places, but the images, colors, brush strokes and compositions are adjusted until they are new moments. Coming from a small town surrounded by wooded areas that she has been painting since childhood, McConaughy brings those places to her current home in Brooklyn to paint from. The source images become part of the present while filled with memories. Claire McConaughy lives and works in New York. She earned her MFA in painting from Columbia University and her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University. She has exhibited in galleries including Selections 45 at The Drawing Center, Variations in Paint at The Painting Center, Persona at the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery, College of St. Elizabeth, Reductive, at Jeffrey Leder Gallery, Portraits at Storefront Gallery and others. She received a Ucross Foundation Residency and Santa Fe Art Institute Artists Residency. For over a decade she was on the staff of New Observations Magazine, a non-profit art journal. http://clairemcconaughy.com/

Cobalt Blue
May 18, 2017 -- Jun 24, 2017
Annie Morris MAY 18 - JUNE 24, 2017 Opening Reception: May 18, from 6-8PM Artist in attendance Winston Wchter Fine Art, New York is excited to announce Cobalt Blue, the gallerys third solo exhibition with Annie Morris. Working across mediums including sculpture, painting and thread works, Morris is well known for her large-scale emotionally charged use of color. Morriss practice is born out of an obsessive collection of figurative and abstract techniques in which she merges materials such as raw pigment, colored thread and more recently moving into bronze, aluminum and steel, in her ongoing quest to capture the essence of joy. For this exhibition, Morris has produced her most ambitious sculpture to date. Stack 10 Cobalt Blue is a 3.5 meter cast bronze sculpture made at a foundry on the outskirts of London, working with technicians famous for fabricating Barbara Hepworths sculpture. Over the past two years, she has been investigating techniques to transform her pigment stack sculptures into the solidity of bronze. Morris layers the bronze with pigments, as well as oxides and nitrates, to allow the build up of color. These colors are burned into the surface of the sculpture, unifying the materiality of the bronze and capturing the color deep in its surface. The result is a work that seems to glow from the core. This sculpture is engineered to live outside so that it can interact with landscapes beyond the gallery walls. Morris also continues her intrigue with the use of thread as viewed in the work, Colour and Steel 2017. In Colour and Steel 2017, lines of colour are sewn freehand and appear more sculptural than painterly. Here, the softness of the thread and the solidity of the metal combine so it is a continuous piece of line and structure. The lines within the piece take on more lines when they are embroidered. Morriss interest is to change something as spontaneous as the act of drawing, and slow down the act of looking. The exhibition also features new pigment stack sculptures including the intriguing, Black Stack 10, a slight departure for Morris. In this stack sculpture, Morris uses black pigment, chalk and watercolor on its surface. For the last 10 years, Annie Morris has continued to experiment with abstraction and the separation of color, obsessively deconstructing and assembling fragments in order to form a harmonious whole. Morris captures the inherent energy and life that can be found in something as simple as a line, stacked or drawn. Annie Morris was born in London, United Kingdom and currently lives and works in London. In 2002, she received her degree from cole des Beaux-Arts Paris. Since then, she has received international acclaim for her considered approach to drawing, sculpture and painting. Selected exhibitions include those at The Royal Academy, London Baku MoMA, Azerbaijan The New Art Gallery, Walsall and Tate Gallery, St Ives.

Featuring: Christopher COLVILLE, Elisabeth CONDON, Lynn DUNHAM, Norma MARKLEY, Tom McGLYNN, Kristin McIVER, Maureen McQUILLAN, Ray RAPP, Alyse ROSNER, Aaron ROTHMAN Rick Wester Fine Art is pleased to present a group exhibition, Tremolo, featuring works by ten artists employing widely varied mediums, including painting, photography, video and neon. Curated by the New York based painter Carolanna Parlato, the shows concept centers on the tremulous effects found in each artists work. The term tremolo refers to the vibrating effect produced on musical instruments when there is a rapid alternation of one or two musical tones. It can also refer to a nervous or involuntary quiver or trill in the human voice. Through their visual experiments with vibration and movement, open interval and colored note, each artist has constructed hybrid forms that respond to the technological world we live in, echoing todays anxiety-ridden zeitgeist. The artworks chosen stem from divergent impulses and methods, welcoming an open-ended process of looking and relating.

DALE LEWIS Full English
May 11, 2017 -- Jun 30, 2017
Anna Zorina Gallery is pleased to announce Full English, the first U.S. solo exhibition of London-based artist Dale Lewis. This will be the artists first exhibition with the gallery. The show features his latest mural-sized oil paintings that depict scenes from his own life. The artist unleashes the personal stories with stream-of-conscious immediacy as a means of preserving the vivid impressions that have been engrained in his memory. By not retouching and refining the work over time, Lewis captures a more honest portrayal of his subconscious as well as documenting the disorienting effects of time on recollection.

DIL HILDEBRAND LOREM IPSUM
May 02, 2017 -- Jun 30, 2017
Opening Reception: May 2nd 6-8pm C24 Gallery is pleased to present Lorem Ipsum, an exhibition of new paintings by Canadian artist Dil Hildebrand. This will be Dil Hildebrands first solo exhibition in New York. Lorem Ipsum presents a new series of paintings and collage that highlight the artists distinctive working process in which he examines space and surface. The exhibition will be on view May 2 - June 30, 2017 with an Opening Reception on Tuesday, May 2 from 6 - 8pm. Dil Hildebrands new body of work focuses on spatial concepts of design, the construction of image, and the mechanics of representation in art. His work is informed and influenced by a diversity of references and methods, including modernist strategies of fragmentation and re-composition, pictorial tropes of Western art and theatre, and post modernist architecture. Layered panels follow a consistent color palette throughout the work, playing with distortion, and depth of field. In Lorem Ipsum, Hildebrands paintings deliberately move away from the austerity of the Cartesian aesthetic to create broader, stylistic movement in space, transcending two-dimensionality and blurring the lines between spatial representation and abstraction. Drawing from experience in scenic painting in theatre, Hildebrand employs the techniques of illusion used in set design. In Lorem Ipsum, his highly stylized brush strokes mixed with collage and layering of acrylic panels, produce the experience of post-modern architectural form. The artist uses several materials in this work: nylon flocking, commonly found in wallpaper, sand, resin and acrylic paint, all layered on clear acrylic panels. The highly physical surfaces create a sense of deep pictorial space. The resulting images frame the body of the viewer in life-sized patterns that imitate the grandeur of structural design. Frameworks and passageways are important motifs to Hildebrands work. Windows are leitmotifs of architectural patterning, ordering the way we think and move through the world they represent the intersections of movement between states of being. Charged with neurosis and rich with history, the architectural image acts as both a map and a record of physical and psychological experience. In this way, the actual frame of Hildebrands paintings act as a window or portal. As if looking through a doorway, the eye rises and falls traveling through the bold shapes and colors of the panels. The result is a transcendent experience that both architectonic spaces and Hildebrands paintings share: a compulsory recognition of the present. Dil Hildebrands work has been shown internationally in such venues as The National Art Museum of China, Beijing 2010 the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa 2012 Herron Galleries at University of Indiana, Indianapolis 2013 Choi & Lager Gallery, Cologne 2013 Union Gallery, London UK 2012&13 University of Manitoba School of Art.

Hildebrand is an MFA graduate of Concordia University, Montreal and has been awarded a number of distinguished grants and awards including the International Residency at Acme Studios, London UK 2013 the Canada Council for the Arts 2010 the Banff Centre Thematic Residency 2009 Conseil des arts et des lettres du Qubec 2009 and was winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition 2006. Major public institutions throughout Canada, including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Muse dart contemporain De Montral, the National Gallery of Canada and the Art Bank of the Canada Council, have collected Hildbrands work.

Contemporary Consciousness Featuring JAMES WOLANIN and JANE MAXWELL
Jun 01, 2017 -- Aug 31, 2017
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: Contemporary Consciousness Featuring JAMES WOLANIN and JANE MAXWELL Summer 2017 Artists Reception: Thursday, June 1st, 2017 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by May 26th, 2017 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 Contemporary Consciousness The female body has long served as a muse in the arts, a lens through which the themes, issues and ongoing dialogue of the contemporary collective consciousness can be reflected. The work of James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell addresses this discourse through reflective interpretations of the feminine ideal through context, material and approach. In Wolanins work an idealized snapshot image is filtered through memories of the artists own personal history. Maxwells imagery on the other hand, while also addressing the legacy of print advertisement in the digital age, looks at its ephemerality through aggregation and accumulation. Biting into societal and personal constructs of femininity both artists commit to an encompassing approach, resulting in work that both entices and provokes. James Wolanin elevates the subject of Americana through a vivid re-imagining of the type imagery depicted in popular American advertisements from his childhood, rendered in a precise, hard-edged style, using surfboard resin as a finish. Unlike the idealized dream-girl stereotypes prevalent in contemporary media, Wolanins women lean towards the wholesome. These captured moments are full of a winking charm simultaneously nostalgic and fresh. The flat planes of color, soft palette, and nod to vintage and minimalist tonal transitions help the works read on an abstract level, creating a deeper resonance between the compositional elements. Wolanin continuously plays with the imagery, working between the ambiguous and beguiling, redefining the narrative. Jane Maxwell explores the complexities of the feminine ideal through the paper medium of current advertisements, brochures and original billboard papers. The work has a feel of the sculptural through the sheer physicality of this material, which is layered, cut and peeled into distinctive female silhouettes. Exploring the ubiquitous and inundating nature of the advertisements, as well as our perception of them, the work presents a complex commentary. Completely deconstructing the original intent of the source material, the artist clothes and forms the female body out of this aggregated ephemera, synthesizing the idealized imagery of the advertisements into something with entirely new meaning. These artists 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!

Margaret Thatcher Projects is proud to present the group exhibition Hybrid Form, which includes works by seven artists Frank Badur, Omar Chacon, Freddy Chandra, Kevin Finklea, Ted Larsen, Joanne Mattera, and Richard Roth. Each artists work challenges the strictures of what defines a painting. Utilizing the medium of paint through varying modalities, the artists are able to stretch an audiences definition as to what constitutes a painting. This stretching of the definition of painting follows the tradition of earlier artists such as Rauschenberg who focused on pushing the boundaries of essentialism in art, bridging the gulf between painting, subject, and object. Reception to be held Thursday, June 8th, 6 -8 pm.

Unbound Perspectives and The Elixir of Color: Contemporary Conversations
Jun 10, 2017 -- Jun 30, 2017
This June Agora Gallery presents a pair of exhibitions that generate a unique and essential dialogue between them. Unbound Perspectives, a group exhibit featuring thirteen artists from all over the world, presents a holistic look at the current state of contemporary art. From ink to photography to wood inlay, Unbound Perspectives examines the way image making has changed just in the last few years - perhaps even in the last few minutes. It is an exhibition on the cutting edge. The Elixir of Color is a solo showcase for the remarkable body of work of painter Sherry Rinderer. Though Rinderers pieces tend to share some characteristics, including a degree of abstraction and an outsized scale, her approach varies as widely as the thirteen styles on display in Unbound Perspectives. She is interested in the interplay of textures with one painting, and in the directionality of line in another. In one she layers colors with the softness of an Impressionist in another she color-blocks her canvas as jarringly as any De Stijl painter. Rinderer is both a chameleon and an auteur. Both exhibitions open June 10 and run through June 30, 2017 with a joint opening reception on Thursday, June 15 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free. Exhibition Dates: June 10 June 30, 2017 Reception: Thursday, June 15,2017, 6:00pm - 8:00pm Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat 11:00am 6:00pm Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York Event URL: http://www.agora-gallery.com/collectivecatalog/Collective_6_10_2017.aspx Featured Artists: Unbound Perspectives Stephen Najda Johanna Wray Maribel Matthews Saskia Weishut-Snapper Ken Wada Vinod More Gita Levy Alexander Adam Shifra Jolanta Talaikiene Josefina Wendel Carlsson Claudia C Forero Carmen Flix The Elixir of Color Sherry Rinderer About Agora Gallery Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Chelseas fine art district in New York.

Transitions: Dong Yuan, Lam Tung-pang and Lao Tongli
Jun 22, 2017 -- Sep 02, 2017
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to present Transitions, an exhibition featuring three young artists whose works illustrate the way in which transitional periods within their lives have informed their art practice. The gallery will present the work of Dong Yuan, Lam Tung-pang and Lao Tongli, with each artist submitting works that correspond with significant changes in their personal and professional lives. For Dong Yuan, the accelerated pace of change in contemporary China causes her to retreat from time to into periods of self-reflection. The last year for example has marked an artistic departure from her previous oil paintings of household objects, and she has instead been creating works that are spiritually connected with the automatic paintings of the surrealists, painting whatever comes into my mind, in a subconscious manner. The resulting compositions are devoid of space and filled with a sea of overlapping shapes and colors. Upon closer inspection, it is in fact creatures and characters of all kinds that populate her canvases, some in human form, others resembling animals or monsters, and all of them with cartoonish sets of eyes staring every which way. Although her paintings are small in scale, their abundance of detail sets up an immersive experience. In one of her less subconscious compositions, Dong Yuans creatures coalesce into an image of Chairman Mao on the 100 renminbi note. The painting is meant as a critique on an ugly by-product of Chinas fast-paced modernization, the writhing mass of creatures representing the greed-obsessed, awful side of human nature. Lam Tungpang employs similar currency-related imagery in his recent works. Two Hong Kong currency notes, printed onto Xuan paper and then mounted on canvas, have been methodically erased, leaving the faded images of a 10 HK dollar note from the British colonial era and a contemporary 100 HK dollar note issued by the Bank of China. In a 2012 article in the Yishu Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, Lam mused that Administratively, much of Hong Kong has returned to the way it was mandated by China, but its culture and lifestyle wont return for at least fifty years... We are exactly in the moment of the shift... After one hundred years, there may no longer be a Hong Kong dollar bill, and our identity will not be found anywhere. Perhaps thats why so many possibilities could happen at this moment. The two recent works are related to one of his best known pieces, Selling My Soul, which is also presented as part of this exhibition. Selling My Soul was first presented at the Tate Modern in the 2010 exhibition No Soul For Sale, which brought together various independent art organizations around the globe to participate in a large-scale group exhibition. In an piece presented by the Hong Kong-based Para:Site art space, Lam printed avatars of himself on small erasers, which he then used in an attempt to erase four large charcoal drawings. It was presented as a time-based performance piece that for Lam represented the all-consuming act of creating or doing art, illustrated by the erasers that were consumed one by one. Turning the title of the exhibition on its head, Lam argued that the artists soul was in fact constantly being put up for sale, no matter the venue, going so far as to question whether the independent art space is as independent as it always claims to be. Lao Tonglis series of ink paintings began as a way to cope with his fathers long battle with heart disease, to which he succumbed after several surgeries and numerous hospital stays. Constantly conversing with doctors, and poring over charts and illustrations of human arteries and veins, Tongli began to incorporate the imagery of blood vessels into his artwork, where they evolved into a dense, layered labyrinth of interweaving colored lines. Painting with a traditional Chinese brush, his webs of overlapping lines become evocative of landscapes, natural root systems, or coral formations that seem to extend infinitely. Extremely labor-intensive, the artist views his work as an exercise in patience, and actively tries to enjoy the physical labor involved with his creation process. Mindful of the spiritual connotations in his meditative approach to painting, Lao Tongli tries to find freedom and nirvana through his work.

Daniel Brice: Another Liquid Sequence
Jun 22, 2017 -- Jul 29, 2017
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Another Liquid Sequence, Daniel Brices second solo show at the gallery. Daniel Brices paintings are influenced by the minimalist environments of coastal California. They reference the hazy atmosphere above and in front of the earth, ocean, and sky. Their blurred boundaries translate to moody color fields with a simmering quietude, often grounded by abstract geometric form. Returning to oil after a stretch of working with watercolor, Brice can invigorate his layering technique with a more tactile quality. The layers are built up on the paper so that his process is evident, with the finished surfaces acquiring a sleek sheen. All of his pieces begin with choosing a color and then, through intuition and color theory, Brice introduces each additional color to create supporting harmony or dissonance. The choices are poetic, even musical, and he ultimately strives to solve the puzzle each decision unlocks. When viewing the finished piece, what first appears to be a minimal or monochromatic palette is then revealed to be built upon under-painting with a vast spectrum. Several works on view in Another Liquid Sequence are particularly reminiscent of the subtle complexity of the horizon line, mirroring the thin wide expanse where colors meet and blend. Others are darker, seemingly more internal, offering suggestions of formality. From brilliant blues to exploring shades of black, Brices paintings strive to be a reflection of the internal conversations one has while in a meditative state. Daniel Brice has exhibited widely throughout the United States, including at Chiaroscuro Contemporary Art, Western Project, and Riverside Museum of Art. His work is featured in many public and private collections. He lives and works in California.

Nancy Cohen: Liaisons
Jun 22, 2017 -- Jul 29, 2017
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Liaisons, Nancy Cohens first solo show at the gallery. Nancy Cohen is interested in the juxtaposition of fragility and strength, both in our personal lives and the environment. Her work investigates the journey of the individual navigating a perilous world, all while exploring the fragility of that world itself. Through personal study of waterways and collaborations with scientists and environmentalists, Cohen imbues her work with academic references to a natural world that is fighting back while constantly under threat. Cohen shares these dualities in her choice of materials. She has been working with glass and handmade paper for over twenty years, drawn to how they transform along the way to the pieces finished form. These materials allow for an implication of the body in the work, the necessary touch and adaptation to their malleability is evident in their construction. Their elements hang in the balance, each one necessary, vulnerable, and interdependent. The pieces on view in Liaisons show the evolution of a body of work. Earlier pieces are constructed with a variety of found glasses that have been melted and reformed in a kiln over molds of clay, while newer works use glass made by Cohen. They are connected by ideas of form, experimentation with materials, and a balance of intuition and intention. Heavily inspired by water, Cohens sculptures have an undulating, ethereal quality to them. They bring to mind images of eddies, seafoam, crashing waves, and the topography of waterways. They are inspired by the tension between industrial development and nature thats abundant on the coast of New Jersey, intuitively responding to the forms, colors, and sounds that emerge as the coastline transforms over time. Nancy Cohen has exhibited widely throughout the United States including at UrbanGlass, the Quark Park Sculpture Garden, The Sculpture Center, and the Staten Island Botanical Garden. She has been and Artist in Residence at Bullseye Glass, WheatonArts, and Pilchuck Glass School and done residencies at Yaddo, MacDowell Colony, and Millay Colony. She is the recipient of several grants, including a Pollack Krasner Foundation Grant. Nancy Cohen has an MFA from Columbia University, and lives and works in Jersey City, New Jersey.
