Camilo Godoy: En Vivo y En Directo
Feb 28, 2019 -- Mar 27, 2019
CUE Art Foundation is pleased to present En Vivo y En Directo, a solo exhibition by Camilo Godoy, curated by Tania Bruguera. The artist employs video, photography, performance, and installation to call into question political moments, their corresponding media coverage, and the production of history. Rather than adhering to established narratives, Godoy re-presents such occurrences in a way that allows for alternative views of history, meaning, and the impact of political events on the lived experience and the human body. By subverting contemporary and historical narratives of past and present moments, Godoy’s work interrogates how history is recorded and presented, archived and interpreted, and by whom. Opening reception: Thursday, February 28, 6-8PM

Medvedev: Master of Intarsia
Jan 01, 2019 -- Mar 30, 2019
Stuart and Donna Wilensky, internationally renowned fine mineral collectors and dealers, launch their first gallery exhibition. Located in Chelsea, Wilensky Fine Minerals features rare natural art within the breadth of stunning neighborhood galleries. A celebration of stones, the Wilensky gallery has dedicated its first show to intarsia, or pietre dure, the art of stone inlay. Intarsia involves the cutting and fitting together of semi-precious and decorative stones, alongside marble, and has a centuries-long history of decorating objects such as tabletops, facades, and furniture. Medvedev: Master of Intarsia, explores the work of award-winning master craftsman, Nicolai Medvedev. Born and raised in the Republic of Turkmenistan, Medvedev was influenced by a cross-section of eastern and western art, beginning his career as a painter. After a trip to St. Petersburg in the 1970’s, Nicolai was inspired by examples of intarsia seen in great collections, and dedicated his studies to excelling in the technical skills and tools needed to create stone inlay art objects. Beginning with pendants, Medvedev juxtaposed contrasting materials, such as lapis lazuli, jasper, and malachite, graduating to a signature look of developing intricate boxes with unusual materials, such as rare malachite stalactite cross sections, dinosaur bone, precious opal, and gold-in-quartz. The “Garden Box,” featured in the show, took 2.5 years to finish, and is assembled from over 3,600 decorative stones. As much attention is paid to the inside of boxes, with elaborate intarsia designs showcased from all angles. The Master of Intarsia exhibition features works by Nicolai Medvedev, including a picture frame, sixteen intarsia boxes, and a malachite stalactite specimen.

Dalia Ramanauskas : Ink Drawings
Feb 21, 2019 -- Mar 30, 2019
Created in the 1970's, Dalia Ramanauskas' still lifes offer a sensibility that sets her apart from her contemporaries. With an approach bordering on the scientific, the artist carefully renders each of her subjects like an anthropological specimen. Distortions in shadow and perspective create subtle unrealities within these compositions, imbuing them with a formal tension and poetic atmosphere akin to a Morandi still life. The result of Ramanauskas’ endeavor is a recycling of the precious memorabilia of everyday life and an exaltation of the ordinary.

Each One All
Feb 28, 2019 -- Mar 30, 2019
SKY KIM EACH ONE ALL FEBRUARY 28 – MARCH 30, 2019 OPENING RECEPTION: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28TH, 6 – 8 PM. In Each One All, Thomas Jaeckel gallery showcases breathtakingly intricate and powerful watercolors by Korean artist Sky Kim that challenge traditional assumptions about what can be achieved in the medium. Gravid with a sense of calm but profound mystery, the forms in this exhibition have have the quiet presence and gentle self-assertion of a flower in bloom or a luminous star field in a clear desert sky. Their complex weave of undulating strands and vortexes consisting of tiny pearlescent spheres, soft teardrop-shaped organelles, and sinuous looping tendrils evokes the ever-present beauties of nature while retaining a mildly eerie alienness that animates them with a mildly otherworldly aura. We are pleased to represent Sky Kim. Kim is a Korean-born artist living and working in the New York City area. She has an M.F.A in Painting from Pratt Institute, and is a recipient of the National Museum of Contemporary Art’s National Korean Art Competition Awards and a Pratt Institute Art Grant. Her works have been exhibited in major venues around the world, and are in many private collections. She has lectured as guest artist at universities, including University of Nevada, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and St. Joseph’s University.

“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.

Kevin Grass: Ordinary People
Mar 07, 2019 -- Apr 06, 2019
Paul Calendrillo New York is proud to announce our second solo exhibition for extraordinary figurative painter, Kevin Grass. This is a must-see New York show. Our opening reception will take place the evening of March 7 from 6pm to 8pm. Artist Statement Being an artist is my life and painting is my chosen medium. It would be great to come home and relax after teaching my college classes all day, but I don’t -- I paint. I paint during the week, I paint on the weekends, and I paint during the holidays. It is rare that I go for more than two or three days without painting and, even then, I usually work on examples for the students in my college drawing and painting classes. It is as essential to my existence as breathing. Ever since I first picked up a pencil I have been fascinated with realism. It does not seem possible that acrylic paint can create the illusion of space, light, and form, and when it happens it seems like magic. Even after my many years of painting I am still amazed when the transformation occurs. With each new piece I attempt to improve upon my brand of realism, which combines Flemish painting and contemporary Photorealism, ultimately making it hard to distinguish between the actual subject and the image. There is no way to rush or fake the techniques that I use to create the highly detailed subjects and rich, naturalistic colors in my paintings, with many pieces taking between 200 and 400 hours. My brand of realism sets me apart from most other artists and it is what initially draws viewers to the work. Working with traditional subjects can be very satisfying, and I have completed numerous landscape and portrait paintings which I enjoyed, but I am much more interested in working with images that have narrative content. Designing narrative work is challenging and exciting. From the models and supporting elements to the setting, each piece is important to the narrative and must be carefully incorporated into the image for proper visual balance, emphasis, and clarity of message. My favorite topic is contemporary life in America. Fashions are reflective of our culture and the models are real people, which makes the narrative more relatable to the contemporary viewer. Each piece is carefully crafted to evoke emotions in the viewer, transforming the acrylic painting into a majestic mirror that reflects a tarnished reality. I want to give contemporary viewers a new perspective on their world and I want future generations to see what it is like to live in turn-of-the-century America. My paintings are not artwork that just hangs on a wall to serve a decorative purpose – they demand attention and promote lively discussion. Ultimately, I want to get people to think and talk to one another about important issues.

Working in collage, painting, and sculpture, several of Hawkins' series emerge from a process of studying, internalizing, and regenerating the ideas of historical artists and thinkers, inflected by the specificity of Hawkins' own visual lexicon and biography.

Mar 21, 2019 -- Apr 20, 2019
Portraits of Philip Akkerman in collaboration with graphic designer Dennis Koot. Koot has designed a series of framing elements in reaction to Akkerman’s paintings. The frame is often thought of as a delimiting device. But in the hands of Koot/Akkerman, the frame behaves like a portal extending the image into a new environmental surreal realm. Opening Reception with the artists: Thu, Mar 21, 6-8pm.

"John McLaughlin: Ascetic Approach," curated by David Platzker
Mar 21, 2019 -- Apr 20, 2019
Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present John McLaughlin: Ascetic Approach, curated by David Platzker. The exhibition will run from 21 March through 20 April 2019. John McLaughlin has long been characterized as the preeminent classical West Coast, minimalist hard-edge painter. His heralded paintings, produced from the mid-1940s forward, would prefigure the cool, anodyne aesthetic assumed by younger Southern California light and space, finish fetish, artists, including Larry Bell, Judy Chicago, Mary Course, Craig Kauffman, Robert Irwin, John McCracken, and James Turrell. McLaughlin’s artistic origins and intellectual curiosity, however, were grounded in a deep interest in Japan, where he lived from 1935 to 1938 before moving to Boston to open a gallery dedicated to Japanese prints and Asian decorative arts. His earliest paintings, starting in the 1930s, reflect paired down still lifes and biomorphic abstractions that contained muted colors which, in a short span of years, distilled into deeply-considered geometric abstractions that harmonized the interplay of color-block geometric forms with white grounded scale. John McLaughlin: Ascetic Approach takes root in a simple, forgotten, black, three-ring binder that contains over one hundred and twenty 8 x 10-inch black-and-white photographs of paintings by McLaughlin, clinically documenting in sequence works he produced from the 1940s until 1968. While not formally a catalogue raisonne of John McLaughlin’s paintings, this binder is perhaps the most complete representation of his oeuvre produced contemporaneously with his production. Assumed to have been compiled by his long-time dealer, Felix Landau, the album bares evidence of McLaughlin’s transition from abstract classicism to an art he referenced as possessing his “ascetic approach.” As the artist wrote in March 1970, this phrase denotes the “position accommodated by my conviction that the viewer becomes central to the neutrality of the non-expressive structure. Thus, the absence of perceptible entity becomes the function of the viewer as opposed to the work itself. This is to say, his unmixed thought is content.” Paradoxically, these black-and-white photographs provide only the most basic reflection of McLaughlin’s work. Devoid of true color and scale, they are ghostly renderings in gray to black monochrome of the artist’s systematic trajectory. These reproductions will be punctuated by a select group of McLaughlin’s paintings, yielding a vibrant intersection between the representation and the reality of his craft.

Body Lines
Mar 21, 2019 -- Apr 20, 2019
BODY LINES?(March 21 - April 20, 2019) ?Guest curators Caroline Casey and Sophie Friedman-Pappas have combined forces to create an exhibition formed from the Cavin-Morris Gallery roster of artists:??Body Lines is a group exhibition featuring an international selection of artists, each with a transformative vision of the human body and spirit. The long history of drawing the figure has created an inextricable link between line and the body, a practice which continues to reflect our ever evolving relationship with the human form and consciousness. The drawings in the exhibition use line to push beyond representational depictions of physicality into the realm of abstract notions of presence and spirit. ??The exhibition will include the work of Dwight Mackintosh from Creative Growth, whose loose, repetitive lines result in x-ray like visions, as if to show the interior structures of the human form. Also from Creative Growth, the prolific artist Donald Mitchell uses obsessive crosshatching to reveal faces and figures within the surface of the page. Caroline Demangel also works in the practice of uncovering the intangible with her dynamic and energetic lines. She once described her work as “the hatching of something buried I am still exploring.” ?The intricate and anatomical work of Lubos Plny speaks to the relationship between the internal and the external, his annotations ask us to think about the micro worlds churning inside all of us. Plny was diagnosed with schizophrenia simplex, a non-hallucinatory manifestation of the disease, and processes his condition by creating complex and layered images of the body. ?Working to explore the depths of the spirit is Japanese artist M’onma who is guided by an ‘entity’ to create elaborate drawings that result in a woven, tapestry-like vision. He outlines intersecting swatches of space and color to form a tooth, fingernail or an eye, and ultimately carves out a world on paper. Belgian artist Solange Knopf also taps into the psyche to transmute archetypes and transmit dreamscapes of the soul. Additionally, Indonesian artist Angkasapura’s ferocious marks create an esoteric gravity within his heavy figures and their habitats. It is the varying density he gives each appendage and the intense detail that gives the viewer a clue into the force that moves him. ?The exhibition will also include pieces by Miguel Ramon Morales Diaz and Ilya Natarevich who transform the ostensibly mundane to communicate a rich interior vision. The work of self-taught masters Bill Traylor and Martin Ramirez will be included in the exhibition. Both artists use seemingly simplistic, flattened representations of the human form with recurring motifs to explore a vivid yet complex world. ??Each artist harnesses the quality of line to convey the ever evolving vision of the body in relation to the external world. The selection for the exhibition explores the continuous dialogue between inward and outward selfhood.  ? For additional information please contact info@cavinmorris.com or call us at 212-226-3768.

Angel Otero, Milagros
Mar 07, 2019 -- Apr 20, 2019
Lehmann Maupin is pleased to announce Angel Otero’s Milagros. The New York-based artist will debut a series of recent, large-scale tapestry-like oil paintings that hang entirely free from a stretcher bar. Over the last decade, Otero has developed physically rigorous and experimental techniques to push the boundaries of painting. Drawing much of his inspiration from the inherent qualities of oil paint, Otero uses collage and materiality as he explores the potential for abstraction to engage issues of identity as well as form, color, and line. The gallery will host a reception for the artist on Thursday, March 7, from 6 to 8 PM at 501 West 24th Street.

Pixy Liao: Open Kimono
Mar 07, 2019 -- Apr 27, 2019
Chambers Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening on March 7 of Pixy Liao: Open Kimono. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Born and raised in Shanghai, China, Pixy Liao received her MFA in photography from the University of Memphis in 2008. It was within this completely new and foreign environment that she first began working as an artist, exploring everyday life in Memphis through a series of ‘American landscapes’. It was also in Memphis that she met her boyfriend-turned-muse Moro – inspiring the body of work that she has become best known for, called Experimental Relationship. The ongoing project is a staged documentation of their relationship, now spanning over 12 years, in which Liao creates various intimate, playful, and witty tableaux that often place her in a position of power over Moro, in a subtle reversal of gender roles. The artist states, “As a woman brought up in China, I used to think I could only love someone who is older and more mature than me, who can be my protector and mentor. Then I met my current boyfriend, Moro. Since he is 5 years younger than me, I felt that whole concept of relationships changed, all the way around. I became the person who has more authority & power.” Open Kimono presents a selection from the latest iteration of Experimental Relationship, with most of the photographs on view taken in 2018 while the couple were traveling through their home countries China and Japan. As the title of the exhibition suggests, several of the images portray both artist and muse in traditional Japanese dress, although the intimate settings and sensual imagery take their inspiration from Japanese female Yakuza films rather than feudal Japan. Alongside her photographs, Liao presents a new series of Risographs that were created during a recent residency at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York. Risographs take their name from the Riso Kagaku Corporation, which manufactured a digital duplicator that automated a printing process similar to silk screen printing. It was released in Japan in 1986. Liao embraced the unpredictable method of printing, deconstructing the imagery from her existing photos into simple lines of color, experimenting with offset printing and a simplified color palette. Located at one end of the gallery is a golden ladder on which visitors can climb to view Liao’s installation Temple for Her. The piece is a part of the artist’s larger conceptual series "Evil Women Cult", an imaginary cult that worships all of the “evil female leaders” in history. This particular piece is dedicated to Wu Zetian (624-705 CE), the only female emperor in the history of China. Within Liao’s miniature ‘temple’ is a pool of blood within the shape of a woman, a red staircase, a phallic throne, a pair of golden rolling eyes and a Chinese character Wu created for herself as her name, Zhao, which is a combination of two characters: "clear" and "sky." The temple is inspired by the lonely path the Empress took on her way to the pinnacle of power. The miniature format for this installation was created in conjunction with Flyweight, a bookshelf-sized project space located within the home of artists Clare Torina and Jesse Cesario, and has been re-staged for this exhibition. Pixy Liao is a recipient of NYFA Fellowship in photography, Santo Foundation Individual Artist Award, Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival Madame Figaro Women Photographers Award, En Foco's New Works Fellowship and LensCulture Exposure Awards. She has been a resident at University of Arts London, Pioneer Works, Light Work, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Center for Photography at Woodstock, and Camera Club of New York. Liao’s photographs have been exhibited internationally, including He Xiangning Art Museum (China), Museum of Sex (NY), and Asia Society (Houston). She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Mar 14, 2019 -- Apr 27, 2019
For ''Hotel Window,'' Nguyen-duy rented the same sixty-four square-foot room in Ho Chi Minh City, District 1, over the course of several trips to Vietnam from 2015 to 2017. For close to six months he photographed obsessively from dawn until deep into the night, breaking only for food and sleep. The alley below the hotel serves as a shortcut between a congested street where it begins and a crowded market where it terminates on the other end. The artist's lens sat witness to all of the human traffic and adventures that unfolded before its steady gaze. Opening Reception: Thu, Mar 14, 6-8pm.

AMERICA TO ME: A Retrospective Featuring AMERICA MARTIN
Feb 07, 2019 -- Apr 30, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery 326 N Coast Highway | Laguna Beach, CA 92651 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com AMERICA TO ME Bursting with life, form, and color, America Martin’s compositions pioneer a reaffirmation of life and the human experience. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, America to Me, an exhibition featuring both new and retrospective work rooted in Martin’s investigation of the human form and its context. Exploring the identity of both her namesake and country, LA-based America Martin draws inspiration from her Colombian heritage and the human figure to represent a diverse portrayal of what and who America is. With resounding vulnerability, Martin showcases a reflection of self and of country while simultaneously addressing her individualism and nationality. Refusing to universalize the American dream or experience, she instead meditates on the importance of individual narration and on her own ability to navigate these ideas through artistic outlet. Replete with biographical anecdotes and self-reflections, Martin integrates her strong personality and story telling as she cogitates upon the opportunities and challenges that America, the country, has afforded America, the artist. Sparking conversations about what has and has not succeeded in both her personal experience and in the quest for freedom and eradication of bias, each work is created both to question and to express gratitude. Remaining true to her heritage and integrity as an artist, this retrospective serves as a nostalgic memoir infused with tales of opportunity and Martin’s raw talent. Adhering to her signature style, Martin seamlessly introduces allegory through radical forms and an unmistakable aesthetic sensibility. Strikingly bold in composition and narrative, Martin’s works investigate the framework of humanity as she continues the ubiquitous theme of identity. Offering a hopeful look towards a future of inclusivity and acceptance, Martin’s artwork alludes to the America we hope to be. AMERICA MARTIN (b. 1980, Los Angeles, CA) is a Colombian American fine artist based in Los Angeles, CA. America Martin’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression.

Mar 14, 2019 -- May 04, 2019
David Taylor and Marcos Ramirez Erre conceived of DeLIMITations as a survey of the border between their respective countries as it existed in 1821. Setting out to mark a boundary that was never physically defined in its entirety, that original demarcation was eliminated following the Mexican-American War in 1848 and cost Mexico more than half its land--500,000 square miles worth.

Formula 1: A Loud, Low Hum curated by Mira Dayal and Simon Wu
Apr 04, 2019 -- May 08, 2019
CUE Art Foundation is pleased to present Formula 1: A Loud, Low Hum, a group exhibition featuring Nikita Gale, Laurie Kang, and Amanda Turner Pohan, organized by Mira Dayal and Simon Wu. Formula 1 is an expanded exhibition project exploring alternative potentials for data-collection. What does it mean to make a formula? Is a formula a guarantee, a container, an act of “capturing” the means of producing something? Probing the networked nature of formula- and exhibition-making processes, the curatorial premise began with a public invitation to submit formulas for “successful” works of contemporary art. For Formula 1, each artist produced new work partially in response to selected formulas from the call and partially as continuations of their past investigations. Opening reception: Thursday, April 4, 6-8PM

Donald Sultan: Mimosa, PAINTINGS & DRAWINGS
Apr 04, 2019 -- May 11, 2019
RYAN LEE is pleased to announce Donald Sultan: Mimosa, PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS, an exhibition of new work by the acclaimed artist. Inspired by a gift of mimosa blossoms he received from a friend in the South of France, Sultan began using the structure of the mimosa plant to continue his interrogation of the space between abstraction and representation, the organic and the industrial, as well as the history of modern art. The exhibition includes largescale drawings and monumental paintings, ranging from four to eight feet wide, respectively. This is the first exhibition of Sultan’s Mimosa paintings and the show will be accompanied by a catalogue. Sultan executed the paintings and drawings simultaneously, and as a result they inform each other. Working out the density of charcoal and conte in the drawings first led Sultan to the paintings in which he uses roofing tar and enamel to create a richly textured surface. He continues his use of industrial materials, such as Masonite and vinyl along with the tar and enamel, to construct his paintings, which in their scale, heft, and dimensionality, are sculptural as well as architectural. Their exposed sides and edges reveal the process of their creation. Unlike prior series in which Sultan carved directly into the surface of the painting to generate his imagery, in the Mimosas he builds up the surface through a series of layering techniques applied directly to the Masonite. In Mimosa Jan 16 2019, a cascade of black and brown leaves washes across the eight-by- eightfoot Masonite surface. The range in depth and luminosity of the dark palette is the result of washing the tar with turpentine after its application—a technique Sultan borrowed from his groundbreaking Disaster paintings of the 1980s. Combining fluid gestural brushwork with the precision of stencils and decals, Sultan creates a composition that is at once explosive and contained. Color plays an especially prominent role in these new works as exemplified by the lush green foliage in Mimosa With Orange and Green Oct 3 2018. In other paintings, passages of light blue suggest the sundrenched skies of Southern France, and Sultan’s mimosa blossoms range in color from dark blue, to orange, deep green, and indigo. The circular forms that Sultan makes use of visualize the interconnectedness across the organic and artificial realms, and link this new body of work to prior series, such as the Morning Glories, Buttons, and Dominoes of the 1990s. The flattened discs have served as the center of a flower, the holes in a button, or in the case of the Mimosas, an entire blossom. Sultan has said, “the closer you work from reality the more abstract things can get.” In distilling the mimosa plant into the fundamental geometry of its leaves and blossoms, it becomes something conceptual. It functions as a vehicle for the exploration of visual ideas— the “armature,” as Sultan has called it, for a “gestural thought of leaves in general.”

Le Bateau Ivre
Apr 04, 2019 -- May 11, 2019
JanKossen Contemporary is pleased to present Le Bateau Ivre (“The Drunken Ship”), the second solo exhibition featuring works by German artist Ju?rgen Jansen in the United States. Le Bateau Ivre features mixed media works on panel. Using anything but a brush, Jansen applies the mixture of oil, mineral spirits, and resin. Through 30-40 layers, Jansen creates a glass like surface with depths of colour and brightness. Titled after a verse-poem by Arthur Rimbaud about a sinking ship drifting at sea and is known for its vivid imagery and symbolism, which is mirrored in the vibrant and contrasting colours used by Jansen. Furthermore, it is a surreal poem written from the perspective of the ship itself, wherein it describes its many transcendent sensory experiences. The artists’ pieces exuded a joie de vivre through the vibrancy and emotion expressed in the marks and gestures. While listening to 80s pop music (which often inspire the titles of his artworks), the artist attacks the canvas from all angle; He moves around the canvas which he has placed flat on the floor, and even climbing ladders to achieve the desired effects of chance which permeate through his work. The artist lives and works in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Ana Garces Kiley: Nothing is Itself All the Way Through
Apr 11, 2019 -- May 04, 2019
This exhibition engulfs the viewer – A horned figure of sculptured cloth hovers in the corner, double-sided paintings suspend like portals from the ceiling, lovers morph and bleed one into the other across a wall of six paintings of red-mirrored acrylite, while in a rear room works on vellum drift in a sea of blue. There’s a strange intimacy to the way these pieces blur images of origin, death, and desire. A man-of-war floats on an organza river of life, a radiolaria of cut mirrored plexiglass glows red, on the floor at the viewer’s feet a delicately sewn skeleton of a creature crawls as if out of a dream. I am interested in using paint and transparent materials to create multi-layered compositions that, through a play with light, reflection, and shadow, explore simultaneity of image and emptiness. I have also taken some work off the wall and foregone the opacity of the traditional canvas. They now suspend or sit in the center of the room like a portal. I stretch both sides with transparent voile and add an acrylic insert to create three layers on which I paint, print and etch. Each layer interacts with the others, weaving a complex composition of images, shadows, moire and reflections. My work transforms the human body into a magical realist vessel for embodying archetypes of death, desire and our collective unconscious –those very things that make us most human and most enigmatic. In response to a predominantly male depiction of sexuality throughout art history, as a woman I want to depict sexuality and sensuality from a feminine perspective. Rejecting the traditional opacity of the canvas, I employ voile to unveil the complexity of our ephemeral nature. Ana earned her MFA from Columbia University and has shown around the world.

Jessica McGarry Bartlet: Trace of Man
Apr 23, 2019 -- May 19, 2019
First Street Gallery is pleased to announce Jessica McGarry Bartlet’s fourth solo show with the gallery. McGarry Bartlet has been a member since 2010. Trace of Man marks the debut of her sketchbook practice, playful, energetic drawings of “raggies” the artist “creeps”. They have a distinct voyeuristic quality that turns the characture-esque pictures into something darker and unsettling. According to the artist, the entire show, regardless of subject, medium, or scale, can be discussed in terms of “restraint, restriction, and the spectrum of suggestion” McGarry Bartlet’s drawings are varied but all show a confident, gestural line quality. “I occupy a place where the vectors of observation, narration, and emotional perspective converge through line, color, form, shape and texture. Trace of Man is about the work made through that occupancy using the formal language of line and color.” In Highland Ave Swamp, a classic orange and blue complimentary composition creates an eye punch that both energizes and agitates. The linear aspect of the composition is created using negative space and color is quickly and confidently brushed in to create spacial perspective and awareness. Like value to the drawings, color is handled confidently and with calculated restraint and tangible physical energy.

JoAnne Artman Gallery at CONTEXT NEW YORK
May 02, 2019 -- May 05, 2019
We are pleased to announce our participation in CONTEXT New York, taking place May 2 - 5, 2019 in Manhattan. The fair will join Art New York at Pier 94, located on the Hudson River at 12th Avenue at 55th Street. JoAnne Artman Gallery will be showcasing the work of America Martin, John “Crash” Matos, Anna Kincaide, and Audra Weaser: artists with distinctive sensibilities in subject matter and concept, yet linked through an expressive formal approach. In a collaborative effort in bringing the abstract and figurative arts together, the featured artists showcase the visual influences of pop culture. Colombian-American artist America Martin continues her exploration of humanist themes through figurative abstraction and powerful, raw elements of color and line. Scenes of everyday life that link the body to the continuity of nature permeate her work, portrayed through both the human form as well as the classic still life. Crash’s recent work takes his iconic visual language of the New York graffiti underground to fresh considerations of abstraction utilizing the spray paint medium. A pioneer not only in technique and style, Crash has played a pivotal role in bringing international attention to graffiti and redirecting the dialogue around it as a legitimate art form. Incorporating elements of fashion photography and contemporary socio-cultural emblems of status and identity, Anna Kincaide’s figures define the separation between body and mind. Headless and bursting forth with florals, her figures showcase the idea of ambiguity between our bodies, identities, and thoughts. Through her process of building up and sanding down layers of color, Audra Weaser’s abstracted scenes evoke images such as bayous, forests, and skyscapes. Rhythmically manipulating her materials as she navigates back into the surface of her wood panels, Weaser’s organic forms are an essence of what is unseen in a reverie of visual and poetic expression. We invite you to join us at CONTEXT New York as we celebrate universal themes in art through a dynamic visual dialogue with the work of America Martin, John “CRASH” Matos, Anna Kincaide, and Audra Weaser.

“BEGIN AGAIN” FEATURING BROOKE SHADEN
Jun 13, 2019 -- Aug 31, 2019
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: “BEGIN AGAIN” FEATURING BROOKE SHADEN June 13-August 31, 2019 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. | New York, NY 10011 Contact:  JoAnne Artman Telephone:  949-510-5481 | E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com BEGIN AGAIN Imaginative, versatile, and a master of concept, Brooke Shaden is a fine art photographer specializing in staged photography that combines allegorical symbolism with personal narrative. Utilizing props as well as commonplace objects, Shaden transforms the world around her into compelling, intricate dreamscapes that combine the strange with the familiar. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by the artist at the gallery’s NYC location, focusing on a new body of work that explores notions of permanence, survival, as well as the classic theme of man versus nature. In her new series, Shaden portrays a dystopian future, emphasizing the improbable odds of humankind in the face of the vastness of nature. Yet despite some of the darker elements, the tone of Shaden’s new body of work maintains a sense of optimism and a playful lightness. Aptly titled, Begin Again depicts a rebirth of self. Alluding to a reimagined future, reevaluated preconceptions, and a reinvention of the artistic process, Shaden thoroughly explores the idea of renewal. Culminating in an expressive awakening, her photographs embody an alternate reality of surrealism and fantasy where the disturbing is made beautiful. Shaden’s definition of her medium is both candid and pragmatic. According to her, “fine art is simply defined as personal work, something you do for yourself.” This directness is evident in her approach, and enables her to fully immerse herself in her practice, creating stunningly surreal, compelling images rooted in personal investigation. Shaden’s surrealism is based in reality and filtered through personal experience. Tonally and thematically, the work is evocative of the drama, palette, and representations of the sublime in nature of late 18th century Romanticism. The impactful, alluringly disconcerting compositions are created through fundamental changes to everyday objects resulting in uncanny, extraordinary images and stories. Shaden shapes the world to her vision utilizing only natural, practical lighting, and builds the final image via a layering process. In past explorations, Shaden’s work has posed probing questions of our collective anxieties, dreams, and nightmares. The imagery is often allegorical as well as visceral, seductive, and instantly relatable. One of the main themes is the eternal struggle of survival, of human nature versus mother nature, of the fragility human life and endurance of the human spirit. Allusions to this classic theme abound throughout the work, evoking ancient stories, myths, and records on the subject of the human condition. In a famous quote from As You Like It by Shakespeare the state of the human condition is presented: “All the world’s a stage And all the men and women merely players.” In the same spirit, Shaden’s dreamscapes can be seen as fashioning of a new reality, a means of taking control of life’s uncertainties and anxieties. Brooke Shaden’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and youre sure to find the right artistic expression.

LINEAGE: Featuring MATT DEVINE, ANTHONY HUNTER, ADRIANA OLIVER

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