Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Recent Paintings

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Lisa Breslow, “Recent Paintings” on view October 14th – November 25th, 2017.

Lisa Breslow’s landscapes and cityscapes are an exercise in contrasts. Both the natural world and architectural grit have a place in her work, highlighting the pull of New York City created by these opposing forces existing side-by-side. Breslow distills her depictions of our surroundings down to their essence, creating atmospheric scenes activated by mood, energy, and light rather than a literal portrayal. Her streets and parks feel familiar, but not quite your own.

Marcelyn McNeil’s show Revising Making-Nice at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Friday, September 1st, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Revising Making Nice, Marcelyn McNeil’s second solo show at the gallery.

Marcelyn McNeil’s latest large-scale abstract oil paintings react against the tendency to overly manicure work. While her strong sense of color remains, McNeil strives to loosen up and broaden her vocabulary. She combines poured paint, fades, and drawing to create new relationships between softer forms.
 
High-pitched color amplifies the energy that has always existed in McNeil’s work, but now there is a greater sense of playfulness, sensuality, and risk. The interplay of competing elements activates the paintings so that they nearly feel animated. They are exuberant yet quietly confident, fueled by off-kilter humor and anthropomorphism.
 
Yet McNeil is steadfastly a modernist in that she remains faithful to the flatness of the surface, eschewing modeling or linear perspective to create the illusion of depth through color and shape. Formalism moves freely in and out of her work. Her compositions appear both carefully considered and the result of intuitive exploration.  

On View September 7th – October 14th, 2017

Following the Thread – a group show at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts”Following the Thread”

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents “Following the Thread”

The distinct divide between the worlds of art and craft has been rapidly shrinking. Artists who work with textiles are being welcomed into the contemporary art world like never before. Following the Thread celebrates a selection of these artists who are experimenting with and being inspired by textiles and the techniques used to work with them in a modern way. Drawn to the aesthetics or the cultural and political connotations of textiles, their work looks to the tenets of painting, applying notions of space, form, and color to their manipulation of fabric and thread.

Ongoing and closes September 2nd.

Liaisons at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Thursday, July 6th, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Liaisons, Nancy Cohen’s first solo show at the gallery.

Nancy Cohen is interested in the juxtaposition of fragility and strength, both in our personal lives and the environment. Her work investigates the journey of the individual navigating a perilous world, all while exploring the fragility of that world itself. Through personal study of waterways and collaborations with scientists and environmentalists, Cohen imbues her work with academic references to a natural world that is fighting back while constantly under threat.

Another Liquid Sentence at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Another Liquid Sentence, Daniel Brice’s second solo show at the gallery. Daniel Brice’s paintings are influenced by the minimalist environments of coastal California. They reference the hazy atmosphere above and in front of the earth, ocean, and sky. Their blurred boundaries translate to moody color fields with a simmering quietude, often grounded by abstract geometric form. Show is up until July 29
