Ivy Brown Gallery presents So do I

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to share ‘So do I’, artist Kenjiro Kitade’s search for the universal common ground in life, even in conflict. ‘Conflict is part of human nature, there is always a Side A and Side B in life and in this show it is the spectators point of view that I looking for, the place where we all can say “So Do I’ to each other and to ourselves.’

The main theme of Kitade’s artwork is focused on questioning.  The sources of the ideas are picked up from his own life experiences, starting from personal experiences and expanding into what’s happening in the world, including history, current event and future issues.  Based on these themes, He questions why it’s happening, what’s the real meaning, Kitade wants to point out these issues to people. “I would be very happy if my pieces triggered discussions with those who see my artwork.  Each piece of artwork has a theme and its own point of view, a sarcastic nuance, and I want to plant a seed in the viewers’ hearts and minds.”

The exhibition opens December 6th and runs January 6th. The artists reception is December 6th doors open at 6:00pm.

Brian Neish’s Deepest Harmony at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Ivy Brown Gallery proudly presents Brian Neish’s first solo New York exhibition:  ‘Deepest Harmony’. ‘Deepest Harmony’ is a series created specifically for this exhibition and further develops Neish’s exploration of time and experience through the layering of paint, color and texture. Recently, Neish has invented a fresh approach using loose painted panels before manipulating them to create finished paintings. For this exhibition there are, among other works, 10 pieces, each one having 9 panels giving a possible 95,126,814,720 permutations. It would take the viewer over 3,000 years to explore all the available combinations in just one piece.

Neish’s interest is unswerving in expressing something of the actual properties inherent to oil paint as a material in its own right. Paint is dragged and spread across its support revealing and concealing older layers underneath: at times spilling over the edge to add an element of chaos within the imposed formality of the depicted shapes, celebrating the paint’s subliminal qualities, and allowing the marks to take you where they will.

Opening Reception Monday, September 11th, 6-8pm

Exhibition dates September 12th-October 18th

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

  The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Jorge Joubert’s New York City exhibition “Empty Hole’. The exhibition runs  May 9th, through May 30th 2017. Joubert is searching for his path, his place in the world, his reason to exist, a question we often ask ourselves, “Why are we here?”.

His camera is the medium he uses to express his emotions, he takes a painstaking amount of time to plan and create each image. They reflect his search for an answer he may never get. It is his chosen route to self-knowledge and exploration.

The Art of Dance at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, November 7th, 2016

Ivy Brown Gallery and Liss Gallery are pleased to present “The Art of Dance” by Rachel Isadora, twenty-five oil paintings inspired by dance.

Isadora’s work is inspired by both modern dance and classical ballet. It is Isadora’s tangibility to the work that draws in the viewer from a student’s perspective of training with some of the greatest teachers and choreographers such as Alexandra Danilova, Martha Graham, Jerome Robbins, Alvin Ailey and George Balanchine. This melding of the contemporary and classical dance repertoire gave her the tools to study and be inspired by the perfection of the human form telling a story. These works take the classical mediums of painting and dance and present them with the inner emotion and knowledge of a dancer as well as a fresh contemporary eye of an artist.

The opening reception will be held Wednesday, November 9th from 6:00pm – 8:00 pm.  The show runs through November 30th with in-gallery happenings inspired by dance and Isadora’s artwork.
