FLOWER POWER at Garvey|Simon until April 28th

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

Flower Power, featuring works by six contemporary artists exploring flora in a wide range of media, is the first-ever show co-curated by Ellen Hackl Fagan, of ODETTA Gallery and Elizabeth Garvey, of Garvey|Simon.The two gallerists share a common aesthetic and the exhibition combines artists from their respective programs. Artists include: Christopher Adams, Jackie Battenfield, Daisy Craddock, Sally Gil, Mel Prest, and Sung Won Yun. 

Flowers, gently seductive in their ability to indelibly imprint upon us memories of first meetings, euphoria, and romance, inspire wonder. Flower Power explores both the materiality of flowers through different artistic media, and the entanglement of biological and emotional phenomena they represent. The six artists shown represent a variety of artistic practices, including ceramic, works on paper, and acrylic, and demonstrate the full spectrum from abstraction to realism. Each artist attends to the duality of their subject, offering up an array of technical innovations with which to capture the physicality of flora, and a diverse perspective on flora’s symbolic charge. Flower Power at once enhances and unravels the romance of its muse.

The Gallerists, both members of AWAD who had previously met at Art on Paper, were delighted to co-curate this exhibition. “We were able to connect and re-connect over time because of AWAD, which has been great. We realize that through community we stand a much better chance of growth and strength.”

Daisy Craddock: Summer Produce at Garvey|Simon Gallery until July 22nd

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Daisy Craddock: Summer Produce, an exhibition of oil pastel diptychs fresh from the studio, by Daisy Craddock. Her subjects’ flavors and fragrances can be sensed right away, and though these works appear to be minimalist squares of color from a distance, they are decidedly realist in nature. With skin on the left and flesh on the right, the diptychs display a subtle yet detailed complexity that is created from layers of scumbled and polished oil pastels and oil sticks. Whether from a farmstand upstate or a neighboring city deli, the fleeting nature of each edible specimen is palpable in Craddock’s delicate surfaces.
