Ground Floor Gallery presents Act 5: Mie Yim | Sfumato

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery is pleased to conclude their 5th anniversary exhibition, ” . . .  in 5 Acts,” with “Sfumato,” Mie Yim’s first solo show in over 10 years!  The artist explains her title, “Sfumato,” in this excerpt from her letter addressed to Leonardo Da Vinci – the brilliant mind who perfected this visual device: 

 Dear Mr. Da Vinci,

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me use the term, “Sfumato” for my painting show.

Yes, you are the master at blending colors and shapes to the softest edges, where the lines disappear. I’m not sure if you invented the technique, but you certainly perfected it. I love the meaning of the word, “to evaporate like smoke”.

. . .  as a young adult, I went to your country to study art for a year. I saw a lot of paintings, yours, of course, and tons of other artists that were your peers and others who followed in your footsteps.   

I was so inspired.  . .  . I started out making figurative paintings. There were made up characters like bears and bunnies in fantasy narrative situations. I guess harking back to my early years. The story telling is great, but there’s this whole other thing called abstraction that you missed out on that’s pretty awesome. So I had to try that too. I literally started to break down the images. For this show at Ground Floor Gallery, I choose recent paintings.  Some veer toward  abstraction, almost minimalist, others are figurative and a bit surrealist. 

The show is ongoing to September 16th.

Ground Floor Gallery presents The Spaces In-Between: Subway Drawings by Patrick Jewell, 2016-18

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Ground Floor Gallery hosts Act 4 in their 5th anniversary exhibition, “. . . in 5 Acts,”. The fourth act features artist and master portraitist, Patrick Jewell. This will be the artist’s exhibition debut of his resonant subway drawings which capture his fellow straphangers in moments of contemplation and self-reflection. A nomadic art practice which emerged from time and space constraints in his daily life, the subway drawings are also a testament to the strength of observation and relentless dedication to one’s craft.

Exhibition closes on August 12th.
