Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Josette Urso’s Moon Palace,

Monday, September 10th, 2018

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Moon Palace, Josette Urso’s fourth solo show with the gallery. Josette Urso’s paintings are driven by a sense of urgency. Working from her observations of her surrounding environment, her inspiration is in a constant state of flux as the light, weather, and elements of any given scene changes as she works. Whether working in plein air during her travels or looking out over her sweeping view of Brooklyn from her studio, Urso responds to the shapes, forms, light, and experience of place and seeks to capture that in heavily worked, frenetic abstraction. Urso begins with broad sweeps of color, paralleling the flow

The show runs from September 13th – October 20th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts Presents Just Beneath The Surface – Stephanie London

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Just Beneath the Surface – Stephanie London. There is a narrative undercurrent to Stephanie London’s still life paintings that give a sense that her arranged objects are like actors on a stage. Sourcing her objects from thrift stores, eBay, or flea markets, they have an inherent nostalgic history to them, and as they are used again and again in her paintings, they become a familiar cast of characters. London’s prolonged study of these objects is apparent in their composition, for there is not only evidence of a finely attuned observation to how they work with one another in light, color, shape, and mood, but the space around and between them bristles with a mysterious energy over how they may relate in their uncanny juxtaposition. This intuitive process lends a sense of London’s hand and subconscious, giving the scene a touch of surrealism.

The exhibition runs from September 13th to October 20th.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents The Built Environment

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts  is pleased to present The Built Environment, a group show curated by Alyssa Alexander and Celeste Kaufman.

The relationship between artists and nature has been celebrated throughout history, with landscape painting and honoring the sublime often being at the forefront of respected art. Even with abstraction, references to the natural world are common. The urban landscape, however, has not been as extensively explored. The Built Environment is a collection of artists who are inspired by the manmade world. While working in abstraction, they incorporate elements of urban architecture, industrialization, and technology that occupy these spaces. Their use of line, color, and form are reminiscent of the geometry of the city, and their materials may be sourced from the city itself.

This show features the work of Luke Achterberg, Mary Didoardo, Joanne Freeman, Gudrun Mertes-Frady, Robert Walden and Noah Loesberg. It is ongoing through September 8, 2018.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Four Degrees of Abstraction

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Four Degrees of Abstraction, a group show curated by Anne-Brigitte Sirois. 

Four Degrees of Abstraction brings together paintings by four artists, Xiaofu Wang, Suzanne Olivier, Cora Cohen, and Morgan Everhart, working in various degrees of abstraction and investigates each artist’s iconographic relation with nature. The exhibition aims to consider the hierarchical distinctions first positioned by art critic and champion of abstract painting, Clement Greenberg, who wrote in his essay On Abstract Art(1944), “Let painting confine itself to the disposition pure and simple of color and line, and not intrigue us by associations with things we can experience more authentically elsewhere… art that is representational too easily suggests narrative and thus panders to literature.” Nearly seventy-five years and many waves of Clem-bashing later, the formalist perspective occupies a position at the zenith of the established culture, yet it remains a subject of controversy.

The show will run June 21st – July 28th.
