Bernd Mechler’s COLOURlust now at Lisa Norris Gallery

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

COLOURlust the new exhibition at the Lisa Norris Gallery is Bernd Mechler‘s first London solo exhibition.

Bernd Mechler is known for his abstract, potent color plays of monumental size.  From early on he had little interest in the representation of reality.  At college he was encouraged to explore his own subjective impressions of reality through painting.

This is painting about painting in the tradition of Gerhard Richter ‘s grey paintings and the white paintings by Robert Ryman.  Mechler almost empties out the canvas of any objects in order to focus entirely on what he describes as a psychological confrontation with painting.  Much of what feeds his work is extracted from life around him, be it a social event, his teaching, visiting an exhibition or simply taking a walk.  His work is spontaneous and relies on the energy of his senses, emotions, intuition and thoughts as well as his perception of the world around him, all of which filters into his compositions.

Laura Korman Gallery is pleased to exhibit artists Cara Barer, Heather Carisch, James Lecce, Katherine Tzu-Lan Mann, Maureen McQuillan, Kristina Quinones, and Randall Stoltzfus in the group exhibition, SPECTRUM. The exhibition will be on view through October 29, 2016, with a public reception on Saturday, July 30th, from 5-8 p.m.

SPECTRUM brings together seven artists from across the country with vastly different practices, who are united by their intrepid handling of color as an evocative agent of expression.

In James Lecce’s psychedelic paintings, color and form fluidly intertwine in elegant, swirling compositions that simultaneously recall Art Nouveau patterning, Op Art, action painting, rock formations and pools of water. These works are a marriage of intuitive painting and methodical planning, achieved by pouring acrylic pigments one-by-one onto the canvas, building up multiple layers, some of which he manipulates with his brush, some of which he allows to move freely across the surface, creating a constant play between control and chance.

Maureen McQuillan adopts a similarly labor-intensive method – slowly and repetitively laying ink lines in layers of polychromatic acrylic. By manipulating these materials to fold and bend into ribbon-like spirals, the colorful optic patterns seem to suggest the infinitely small structures that underlie all living things. One can’t help but think of the double helix of DNA or a flower petal beneath a microscope when looking at McQuillan’s poetic images.

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.
