Driven to Abstraction at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of Driven To Abstraction, an all-women exhibition featuring paintings and works on paper by Caroline Blum (Window on Haight Street 2017 above),  Lori Ellison, Dana James, Melanie Parke and Lizzie Scott. The exhibition has been guest curated by Caroline Blum, a New York based abstract artist, and her husband David Reisman, a writer with Frieze Magazine.

The idea took shape for Caroline after reading recent criticism of mainstream museums and galleries for exhibiting more men than women. In response, Caroline chose to make a curatorial statement and feature five strong women painters. Making connections through social media and in galleries, Caroline identified a group of artists, leaders and innovators in contemporary abstraction, who would shine both individually and as a group.

Driven to Abstraction will be on view March 1 – April 13, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday, March 1, 6-8pm

‘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.

Her compositions speak of Gourlay’s love of music, architecture and nature filtered through a broad range of cultural influences and accomplished art making techniques.

She is the recipient of several grants and fellowships, including two Individual Artist State Grants from the DECD/Connecticut Office of the Arts.

Prismatic by Lars Rylander at Lisa Norris Gallery (4/Jun-4/Jul)

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

Lisa Norris Gallery is pleased to present PRISMATIC the first solo exhibition in London of Swedish painter, Lars Rylander.

About the artist

A couple of canvases lying on the floor in the studio.  In no particular order and without any specific up or down.  So that I can walk around them. Unpainted, quite white and precisely cut from the roll of canvas. I walk around and paint on them with long brushes in. In the beginning quite unplanned, a little here and a little there. Mixing new colours and continuing  while the paintings are emerging. I pick up one of them  and nail it to the wall. Concentrating  on that particular canvas. Slowly approaching what I want to express. Eventually, they are both on the wall. Finished!
