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

 

Jorge Joubert’s “Empty Hole’ opens at the Ivy Brown Gallery

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.

Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to present the magical  ‘Origin of Myth’ by Joshe Goode.

Inspired by amateur archaeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Joshua travels the world performing staged archaeological excavations exposing the malleability of our history.  During these performances he discovers his own versions of historical artifacts, crafted from objects from his youth–such as baseball cards, G.I. Joe action figures, POGS, and various other toys and items. His discoveries and claims, while false and absurdly comical, are based on real research. This exhibit highlights some of his most significant recent discoveries.

 The exhibition runs from March 7th-April 12th

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.
