Susan Eley Fine Art presents Found in Translation

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present their spring show FOUND IN TRANSLATION a two-person exhibition featuring new paintings by Franco-British artist Sarah Picon, and paintings by Los Angeles based artist Chase Langford.

This is Sarah Picon’s second solo show at the gallery. Her intimate still lifes, portraits and landscapes evoke European Modernism in its many artistic styles and movements, glimpsed through a contemporary lens. In the South Gallery, the grouping of more than a dozen paintings include small works in acrylic of fruit or flowers resting on tables, portraits of women in profile or in contemplation and seated at a table.

Chase Langford has been featured in two group exhibitions at SEFA and one solo exhibition. The selected abstract paintings in the North Gallery are drawn from his Morphic series of biomorphic and organic forms, and his Del Mar series, featuring a more linear style, suggesting striations or waterways.  As we look at Langford’s paintings, a funny thing happens to the mind. We recall birds eye views of landscapes glimpsed from airplanes. But seen from a different vantage point, we could be looking into a cross section of a magnificent rock or gemstone.

The exhibition is from April 20-June 1, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 20, 6-8 PM.

Lorene Anderson’s Swirl and Roil at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Monday, April 17th, 2017
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Swirl and Roil, Lorene Anderson’s first solo show with the gallery.
Lorene Anderson‘s paintings have a kinetic energy perfectly fitting her exploration of turbulence, gesture, and the movement and folds of space. Her undulating stripes, dimensional layers, and selective use of reflective paint transforms a two-dimensional surface into a churning, vibrating composition. The dynamic nature of her pieces even suggest environments beyond the picture plane itself, her marks seemingly extending around and beyond the edges of her paintings.
Anderson’s work is a playful investigation of figure-ground and the relationship between positive and negative space. Her paintings, an example Spatial Redux, featured above, are hypnotizing, shifting from meditative tranquility to roiling chaos and back again. Exhibition runs through May 6th.

‘Concealed Spaces: New Works by Tina Buchholtz’ at Karin Weber Gallery, Hong Kong

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Karin Weber Gallery is excited to kick off the Christmas season with ‘Concealed Spaces: New Works by Tina Buchholtz’, a German artist whose subject matter is contemporary society, its stresses, and its coping mechanisms. Buchholtz brings to the canvas tremendous depth, color and texture and suggests a world in constant motion. This chaos, however, is met in equal measure with what the artist refers to as ‘hiding places,’ or refuges for renewal.

“We are in a constant state of advance and retreat,” says Buchholtz. “Exploration is in our nature, and we are firmly focused on the future. And yet, this state of being requires a counter balance; a place to withdraw, rest and begin anew. Balancing extremes is the ultimate challenge for humankind in a contemporary world.” Concealed Spaces offers visualizations of Buchholtz’s own retreats and personal inner sanctums, including the work shown here ‘Liberation’, courtesy of Karin Weber Gallery.

Susan Eley Fine Art presents a solo show of Rachelle Krieger’s new work (10-Sep/22-Oct)

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Susan Eley Fine Art presents a solo show of Rachelle Krieger‘s  new work from 10 September to 22 October. For Krieger (one of whose works is shown above courtesy of Susan Eley), nature is a source of visual, emotional, and spiritual inspiration. Krieger’s large, abstract compositions are often painted en plein-air and reflect the experience of the “rambling, unplanned, chaotic nature of the landscape.” Other pieces are completed in the studio, using smaller oil and watercolor sketches as inspiration.

Krieger received a BFA from The Pratt Institute in 1989. She has also studied at the New York Studio School and the Art Students League in New York City. She lives and works in Port Washington, NY.

Nicola Staglich – Light Space at the Lisa Norris Gallery (12-Mar/18-Apr)

Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

Light Space, a solo exhibition by German artist Nicola Stäglich opens at the Lisa Norris Gallery in Fulham on 12th March and runs until 18th April.

About Nicola Stäglich

Stäglich’s abstract works are based on her examination of colour painting as well as her interest in the expansion of the pictorial space into the real space.

In her paintings colour is poured, sprayed and painted with brushes on the surface in very thin washes. Her process resembles that of erosion and modification in nature. Transparent layers of colour open up the image space within the frame. Geometric forms like circles, ellipses and triangles lay out the possibility for colour and the appearance of light. Together with the veils of colours they build a delicate composition that hovers between solidity and dissolution.
