Martina Nehrling, “Saudade” at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Martina Nehrling, “Saudade” 

On View February 15th – March 24th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Saudade, Martina Nehrling’s second solo show with the gallery. Saudade is a Portuguese term that defies direct translation, but Martina Nehrling thinks the elusiveness of the word is best wrangled by Jasmine Garsd. She describes it as “a melancholy nostalgia for something that perhaps has not even happened. It often carries an assurance that this thing you feel nostalgic for will never happen again.” It’s an unexpected concept to associate with Nehrling’s unabashedly optimistic work characterized by highly saturated color, but in her latest work on view in Saudade she concentrates on the presence of absence.

Joanne Freeman’s My Generation at Katheryn Markel Fine Arts

Joanne Freeman, “My Generation”

On View February 15th – March 24th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present My Generation, Joanne Freeman’s second solo show with the gallery.

Joanne Freeman has been feeling nostalgic. Noticing the parallels between the current political climate and the nature of the 1960s and ‘70s when she grew up, she has been interrogating the aesthetics and societal attitudes of that era in her latest work. When protest and rebellion dominated the culture and traditional institutions were under attack, music and art signaled your identity more than ever before. However, as Freeman began her education, the notions of important art were limited to the male and Western perspectives. As her own artistic identity formed, it developed as a reaction against that lineage. Female attributes and aesthetics became a choice, rather than a burden. 

Freeman’s paintings incorporate elements found in architecture, design, popular culture, and art history. Her reductive compositions and pure color mimic the low-tech graphics utilized in mid-century media, and allude to color field paintings of the 1960s. Masking her forms out beforehand gives her paintings a stencil-like feel, a nod to the printmaking techniques that were also popular at the time, as well as Matisse’s cut outs. As seen in the above painting –Space _18_1, 2018, oil on linen.
