Chris E. King’s No Opportunity for Regret at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Wednesday, December 12th, 2018

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition No Opportunity for Regret by British photographer Chris E. King. The exhibition and the photographer’s book of the same name, takes the viewer on a personal journey through the South and South West of the United States from the passenger seat of his fiancee’s American car. From this perspective, King captures split-second vistas from the window of a car traveling at more than 70mph as well as images that are the results of walking or driving for miles. His photographic strategy is solitary in nature, combin­ing rapid responses that allow him to record the act of traveling with slower methods which visualize rural and urban landscapes. In this habitat, subjectivity is key and photographic criteria are malleable. After all, King is a foreigner and his visual encounters in unfamiliar spaces, many of which are connected to his partner’s homeland and family history, are driven by emotion.

The Exhibition is ongoing through December 19th. There will be an artist’s meet and greet

 

 

Transcendence – Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence – Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen. The artist’s cutwork series is an evolving examination of emotion experienced through the inspired meeting of blade and paper. Beginning with the featureless plane of a blank paper canvas and a surgeon’s scalpel, Gregory-Gruen finds direction spontaneously, or as she says, “I cut from the gut.”

Though seemingly perfect and symmetrical at first glance, the original images are cut with no guide, defined by the authentic energy of the free hand cutting. The reverse-relief effect is achieved by first cutting what will become the top layer of paper, with each subsequent sheet layered and cut individually. About her process, Gregory-Gruen says, “It is visceral. A meditation. Imperfection is perfection.”

Artist’s talk on September 25th 6 – 8 with Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen and Gary Gary Lichtenstein,

Exhibition on View through October 17th

 

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Transcendence by artist Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Transcendence a new series to open the imagination and provide an intermission from the ordeals of life. This series combines the spontaneous nature of Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s free hand Cut Work technique with the unique color blends of master silkscreen artist Gary Lichtenstein. The cut work and silkscreen processes share a relationship of unconscious energy resulting in unexpected visual dynamic.

Elizabeth Gregory-Gruen’s Cut Work series is an evolving exploration of emotion and movement using free hand scalpel cut multilayered imagery. The layers make space for shadows to fall and move with the vibration of life where the imperfection is the perfection. There are no expectations, only discovery.

The image is determined in the top layer of paper. There are no guides or planned drawings. An adhesive is added under the top layer followed by another layer of paper, this layer is cut…the process continues creating multiple layers while folding in the color blend to accelerate the velocity of the image.

Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 6-8

Artist Q&A: Tuesday, September 25, 6-8pm

Exhibition is from September 12th – October 17th.

Prism at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery proudly presents Prism, New York-based artists Kelly Bugden and Van Wifvat’s first collaborative show.

The artistic collaboration has produced a thought-provoking body of sculptures, paintings, and constructions. Nature, childhood memories, and everyday archetypes take shape in unexpected combinations of materials. The works emerged as the tactile and visual senses channeled the ritualistic power and materiality of selected artifacts.

The resulting objects exist in a space between what they were originally and what they could become. A wheel, for example, is distorted as if seen through a prism. Their collaboration grew out of years of shaping materials into one-of-a-kind objects. Intuitively, the process of creating with their hands took an inward turn. Prism is a travelogue through memories and dreams, yielding abstract forms that capture moments of transformation.

Exhibition runs from July 10th-August 15th.
