Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Four Degrees of Abstraction

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Four Degrees of Abstraction, a group show curated by Anne-Brigitte Sirois. 

Four Degrees of Abstraction brings together paintings by four artists, Xiaofu Wang, Suzanne Olivier, Cora Cohen, and Morgan Everhart, working in various degrees of abstraction and investigates each artist’s iconographic relation with nature. The exhibition aims to consider the hierarchical distinctions first positioned by art critic and champion of abstract painting, Clement Greenberg, who wrote in his essay On Abstract Art(1944), “Let painting confine itself to the disposition pure and simple of color and line, and not intrigue us by associations with things we can experience more authentically elsewhere… art that is representational too easily suggests narrative and thus panders to literature.” Nearly seventy-five years and many waves of Clem-bashing later, the formalist perspective occupies a position at the zenith of the established culture, yet it remains a subject of controversy.

The show will run June 21st – July 28th.

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.
