Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition at Susan Eley Fine Art

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition, opening with a reception on Thursday, November 15, 6-8 pm. The exhibition, comprised of 17 encaustics and oil paintings by New Jersey-based artist Lisa Pressman, and 17 acrylic paintings on canvas, acrylite and mixed media studies on paper by Korean-born artist Soonae Tark, will remain on view through December 27, 2018.

This is Soonae Tark’s first major exhibition with SEFA, having participated in the group show “Korean Art Now ” (2015). We are delighted to once again collaborate with curator Heekyoung Song, whose gallery Artflow focuses on contemporary Korean artists, to feature Tark’s paintings.

Soonae Tark’s studio in Sunnyside, Queens is awash in color. Canvases in bright orange, blue, hot pink and red line the walls. Tark’s signature painting is made up of a bright colored background furnished with towers of geometric forms, each a different size, shape and color. Tark’s repertory of shapes includes oblongs, rectangles, squares, wedge-shaped triangles and circles. Each shape is lovingly hand drawn, never perfectly symmetrical and always imperfect, reflecting the realities of an imperfect world.

Lisa Pressman exhibited with SEFA in the group show “Making Their Mark” (2011), the two-person show “Mapping a Place” (2014) and most recently at Art Toronto 2018. In some ways this exhibition represents a retrospective for Lisa Pressman. While the paintings on view are recent, they reflect and refer to 30 years of her content and mark making. Recurring themes of hash marks, vertical mark making, and symbols of vessels and containers are present.

 

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present, Perry Burns, Flower Galaxies

Thursday, August 30th, 2018
Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present, Perry Burns, Flower Galaxies. The exhibition runs through September 22 and consists of new and recent work from Burns’ ongoing Flower Tapestry series.

 The Flower Tapestry paintings merge elements of Islamic design and European tapestries, expressed through the visual language of abstraction. Design and its connection to human history and spirit are central concerns for Burns. He has long been inspired by pattern and rhythmic repetition, which he views as the representation of a spiritual realm, a “visual mantra”. 

For this exhibition, Burns reflects specifically on The Blue Mosque in Istanbul, which he visited in 2010. Standing in awe, looking up at the facade, Burns realized the mosque was covered in an “impossible” pattern of over two hundred thousand hand-painted tiles, each one unique. Together they formed a geometry of flowers and climbing vines, over and throughout the mosque, that visually reinforced the spiritual nature of the “massive earthbound” structure. 

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 Artman Gallery, Presents: 
“THE NEW FIGURATIVE” Featuring America Martin

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

America Martin’s compositions of poetic juxtapositions conjure a story, with the figure as a central focal point for much of the framework. Strikingly bold, the expressive lines of Martin’s work are an assimilation of light, color, movement and form with a unique emphasis on the narrative. The imagery is familiar and transportive, steeped in personal mythology and deeply allegorical. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present a new body of work rooted in Martin’s unique approach in exploring the human form and its context.

The exhibition is the Gallery’s Winter/Spring Show. The artist’s reception is on February 8th from 6pm – 8pm.

JoAnne Artman Gallery presents Deconstructing Allusion II

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

JoAnne Artman Gallery  is pleased to present Deconstructing Allusion II: Featuring Greg Miller ongoing through January 28th, 2018.

The passage of time as well as the impermanence and transitory nature of collective memory are both felt in the work of Greg Miller, who constructs as well as deconstructs our perception of social history through the ephemera of the golden age of the print media. Deconstructing Allusion II is an exhibition of recent work in which Miller layers and reconstructs this imagery of mid-century American consciousness in clever, incongruous juxtapositions that are a life-like, contemporary approach to Pop.

Greg Miller’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you’re sure to find the right artistic expression!
