“Passage to Israel” explores the layered, soulful beauty of the land of Israel. Through the work of twenty renowned photographers, “Passage to Israel” reveals how the people of Israel transformed a desert land of ancient ruins into a breathtaking composition of the natural and man-made, a gorgeous montage of cobblestone streets and wineries, sculpture gardens and Bauhaus architecture, innovative interiors and verdant olive plantations.
Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to announce New York Under Glass, a solo exhibition of East Village artist Joseph Cavalieri. The fifteen new works on display have the theme of expressing New York City landmarks in atypical settings. Personalities seen in the art include San Gennaro, Jackie O, Helen Hayes (above), and a young Ulysses S. Grant. Buildings depicted in the works include the Flat Iron building and the Dakota. Cavalieri places these images in unexpected, curious settings. He describes the pieces as “collages in glass.”
In his work, Cavalieri updates techniques and the storytelling tradition created by medieval stained glass artisans. Each of his works incorporates a detailed narrative, often with humor. Cavalieri’s aim is to merge contemporary imagery with the time-honored processes of painted stained glass, a material with a powerful spiritual history.
Exhibition Dates: Tuesday, December 6th, 2016-December 31st
Silk Screening on Glass Demo: December 10th, 2016 1pm-3pm
‘No Promised Land’ Ed Saye‘s exhibition at The Foundry Gallery in London runs until 12th January 2017 and showcases a new series of paintings focusing on the architecture of idealism. These highly complex and detailed paintings originate from found photographic images of modernist houses falling into disrepair and the makeshift homes of hippie communities. While these two styles of architecture seem to lie at the furthermost points from each other, both implied that utopian idylls could be fabricated through architecture. Each of Saye’s paintings is a different version of these fading idylls, a lament for the utopian ideals of either living through Modernist values – buildings as machines for living – or in hippie communes, living off the land – simply off-grid.
