Robin Glassman’s Lifelines at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Robin Glassman. Inspired and influenced by her illness, travels, and an obsession with collecting, her playful and, sometimes, spiritual art pieces evolve organically through spontaneous mark making and meditation.  Glassman’s works are layered and tactile, eclectic and exploratory, metaphoric and poetic.  By combining biomorphic shapes with intricate details, she plays with the blurry lines that divide the natural world from the more abstract and surreal one.

 

‘My recent body of work is directly connected to cardiopulmonary issues, based on my own extensive hospitalization, and its aftermath. As resource material for this series, I studied images and diagrams of upper body physiology.  By exploring how our organs and skeletal system coexist in the same space, I developed a better understanding of the delicate balance necessary for wellness.  Some of the pieces were made while in the hospital. I experienced the pain in bright primary colors.  Striking the page with the brush, jabbing into it and scratching out helped ease my discomfort.  Sometimes I was so tired my hand just wandered across the page.” Robin Glassman

The exhibition runs from June 6th – June 27th. Opening reception on June 6th – 6:00 – 8:00

 

Anderson Contemporary & The Villa America Fine Art – present Anthony Haden-Guest – The Further Chronicles of the Now

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Anderson Contemporary and The Villa America Fine Art are thrilled to share The Further Chronicles of Now, a show of the ground-breaking cartoon work that Anthony Haden-Guest has been making over the last several years.  His targets are as various as the art world, our social disorders  (new & old) and the state/fate of the planet, so the work is content-driven but such formal elements as color and design are very much part of that content.

 Haden-Guest mostly works in pen and ink on paper, but he likes to extend the possibilities of cartoon language through works in neon, collaborating with animators and with other media.

The exhibit runs from May 10th – June 10th.

The Foundry Gallery presents Katherine Jones’ Looking In, Looking Out (14/Jan-28/Feb)

Monday, December 14th, 2015

From the 14th of January 2016, The Foundry Gallery will present a new exhibition featuring works by Katherine Jones, ‘LOOKING IN, LOOKING OUT’  (one of the works by Jones, Frame, a 2015 collograph is shown here courtesy of The Foundry Gallery) Bridging the divide between motherhood and the art-world has proved to be a catalyst for an exciting new body of work. Partly auto-biographical, acclaimed artist Katherine Jones has taken the archetypal children’s playground and the objects and things a child uses on a daily basis and employed these as a starting point for the works in ‘LOOKING IN, LOOKING OUT’

The fascination of the familiar objects of childhood playgrounds; roundabouts, climbing frames, and the apparatus which form secure considered places for children’s play have become Katherine’s means of expression for describing her personal experiences of witnessing her own children’s development as they begin to learn about the world around them.
