JOAN GRUBIN: The Detritus Series at Garvey|Simon

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present JOAN GRUBIN: The Detritus Series, an exhibition featuring compact and complex collages created with colorful ephemera from the artist’s studio. Grubin’s one rule in the creation of these works is that no intentional marks be added. These intimate structures are a collaboration between intention and chance. The pieces stay true to what Grubin explores with her larger paper works and installations, creating “optical experiences which raise questions about the discrepancy between what we see and what we know.”

This is Grubin’s first solo show with Garvey|Simon. The exhibition is ongoing through December 23, 2017.

Deconstructing Allusion: Featuring Greg Miller at the JoAnne Artman Gallery

Friday, September 1st, 2017

 

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. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present 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. Known for his cheekily playful and vividly rendered visual collages, Miller draws on his urban Californian roots, engaging with the ambiguity in the American landscape. In the works presented Miller explores the connection between advertising, urban environment, and our social history.

Exhibition runs from September 7th – November 11th 2017

Artists Reception Thursday, September 7th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm

‘Once Upon A Tomorrow’ a solo exhibition by Steve Quinn at the Curious Duke Gallery

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Curious Duke Gallery is proud to announce the apocalyptic new exhibition of collage artist, Steven Quinn, runs until April 1st 2017. ‘Once Upon A Tomorrow’ is one of the most politically and culturally relevant exhibitions you can visit in London at the moment. Combining cut-outs from old magazines and historic imagery, Quinn creates ominous collage narratives in which the threat of nuclear destruction and intergalactic conflict loom large.

Against these expansive, portentous backdrops are juxtaposed scenes of mundane domesticity taken from vintage magazines: a figure sunbathing in front of an ominous, expanding sun; a 50’s housewife preparing dinner as a mushroom cloud blooms in the distance.

The result is a beguiling melting pot of ideas, that’s at once thought-provoking, visually arresting, and seeped in dark humour.

“Recently, immigration, Trump, and privacy have been themes which have influenced me a lot. Most of the time I buy old books and magazines, then spend time breaking and cutting them up roughly, sorting them into subject matter. For me the paper quality is better with old magazines. If you’re lucky, you can score some really old 40’s magazines that have been screen printed.”

Monday, August 8th, 2016

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts Gallery in Chelsea, is pleased to share their summer 2016 invitational show. The gallery invited three new, emerging artists to exhibit their work in a group show, curated by Kathryn Markel Fine Arts’ staff. The group show features pieces by Xochi Solis, (pictured image “The still sea is darker than before”), Anna Buckner, and Lorene Anderson. The artists’ work comprises mixed media paintings, collage, and pieced fabric on stretchers. The exhibition runs from August 4th – September 3rd, 2016.

On exhibit at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts Gallery in Bridgehampton,  YOLANDA SANCHEZ  – Recent Works.  In ancient China, there was a tradition of the Three Perfections where a poet, a painter, and a calligrapher would collaborate to create one unique and harmonious piece of art. Yolanda Sanchez manages to incorporate all three disciplines herself into her work. Using color as a vehicle for experience heightened by gesture, composition, and texture, Sanchez’s paintings provide a poetic refuge from the day to day.  August 4th – August 21st, 2016
