Fox Gallery presents – FOX GALLERY NYC+ Eozen Agopian – Persistent Dichotomies / Beverly Miller Orthwein – Beyond Botancials

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Fox Gallery NYC is proud to present their current exhibit of work by Eozen Agopian and Beverly Miller Orthwein. Passionate about their subjects and scrupulous about execution, both artists offer us a feast of engaging provocative and sensory images.

Multimedia artist Agopian offers us a full menu of mixed media art from which to taste recent history, philosophy, emotions, connection and loss.

The beauty and power of the natural world and the accomplishments of highly literate and civilized cultures are celebrated in Beverly Miller Orthwein’s sophisticated watercolors. Her blend of vintage woodblock prints, antique texts and vintage sutras provide us with a rich and delightful viewing experience – Golden Poppy Acrylic, ink and watercolor on mixed media collage on paper – pictured above.

Fox Gallery POP UP EXHIBIT Atara Baker Assemblages: The persistent power of the primal – March 29th and March 30 6-8PM

While walking through MoMA’s recent historic Picasso sculpture exhibit, Annette Benda Fox, Fox Gallery’s Salon Director, was once again struck by the impact non-western (African, Oceanic) art exerted upon modern art in the 20th century. From Picasso’s revolutionary Les Demoiselles d’Avignon through Brancusi, Paul Klee, Giacometti, David Smith, Henry Moore,  John Michel-Basquiat, and others, primal energy has imbued the artist’s vision and work. Fox first observed this while cataloging African and Oceanic art for Sotheby’s and was deeply affected by the works’ emotional power, beauty and symbolism.

With this POP UP exhibit of assemblages by Atara Baker, Fox Gallery shares an artist whose work personifies this power. Baker’s work is inspired by her 10 year stay in South Africa studying the art and  culture of the Bushman (San) people of the Kalahari Desert. In her work, Baker integrates the primal, the spiritual and the symbolic.  Her assemblages are hand built layers of paint, found objects, post industrial hardware and burlap. Her colors are earthy, rich and sensual.  Baker credits her mentor Bill Ainslie who taught her to be faithful to what she saw and to respond in a sensorial, rather than intellectual way.

ELIZABETH GOURLAY ~ TEMPOS

Fox Gallery NYC  presents a solo exhibition of Elizabeth Gourlay’s  artwork created over the two-year period between 2013 – 2015.  Travels to Spoleto and Berlin during this time influenced  her ideas of color and form .

Gourlay presents us with deceptively simple and strong compositions.  If one carefully looks at her work, the reward is in the revealing of complex structures at once playful and serious.  From within paint, collage, ink and graphite emerge her love of music, architecture and nature.   Rich in emotional content,  these elements drive her compositions,  color combinations, layering of line and form filtered through a broad range of cultural influences and art making techniques.
