Susan Eley Fine Art presents A Sense of Place: New Works by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present A Sense of Place: New Work by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood, opening on Thursday, February 28, with a reception from 6-8 pm, and remaining on view through April 11. The exhibition features monotypes by Rachel Burgess and paintings on wood panel and paper by James Isherwood. This exhibition is Burgess’s second one at SEFA, and Isherwood, a Gallery Artist since 2008, has been featured in many group and two person exhibitions at SEFA. 

The coastal landscapes of Maine have been the main source of inspiration for Rachel Burgess for many years. Burgess’s ongoing fascination with how land meets water— along rivers, lakes and the seaside—fuels the creation of her stunning, expressive painterly monotypes. Burgess’s landscapes are spare, punctuated by an occasional house or lighthouse. Trees and bushes sometimes line the coastal edges, but they are not the main attraction, which is always where the water meets the uninterrupted horizon line, where grassy green melts seamlessly into watery edges.

In James Isherwood’s recent landscapes, elements are rarely as expected. Skies are bright pink or yellow, the grass is not always green and the mountain ranges can be neon orange. In these enigmatic paintings Isherwood has found a place where fantasy and reality merge to create a third zone, led by imagination and memory. An Isherwood landscape might evoke the memory of a real place, tickle the feeling of a hillside or a pool of water. Yet, these are impossible, surreal scenes, built up with fragmented, architectural structures, set in otherworldly landscapes; yet compositions are utterly harmonious with elements, man made and natural, all in synch. Painter Rene Magritte comes to mind in the clean edges of fantastic tree lines, silhouetted against night skies, populated with a density of tiny stars.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts present Landscapes, by Sara MacCulloch

Friday, September 16th, 2016

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Landscapes, Sara MacCulloch’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery. “Beach Fog,” by the artist is pictured above.

 Taking in Sara MacCulloch’s landscapes can evoke an uncanny sense of familiarity. The scenes may resonate with the viewer, whether or not they have ever stepped foot in those surroundings.

 Typically completed in one studio session, her works have a sense of immediacy with fresh brushstrokes and compositions teetering on the edge of being resolved and being overworked. Her paintings capture the essence of a place and her emotional connection of experiencing it, rather than portraying minute details of representation. The overall impression of a MacColloch landscape is one of muted serenity, but they have a lingering impact rooted in subtle shifts of color, painterly abstraction, and a lush organic palette. Their hazy portrayal depicts, it seems, more a sense of nostalgia than the specificity of place.

The exhibit will be up until October 15th, 2016

Sandy Litchfield: Deciduous Cities on exhibit at Garvey|Simon

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

Sandy Litchfield, Over and Under Growth, 2016, oil and acrylic on canvas, 60 x 72 in.

Garvey|Simon is pleased to announce the exhibition, Sandy Litchfield: Deciduous Cities, featuring new work from three recent series: Around Town, Forest/City and Rome (Eternal Cities). This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at Garvey|Simon and her first solo show in Manhattan. In these recent paintings, Sandy Litchfield investigates the formal and conceptual relationship between the urban built environment, the countryside, and the forest. Her interest in these composite landscapes derives from her childhood. Litchfield, who grew up as an architect’s daughter, lived between the grit of New York City, the rolling hills of Westchester and the Adirondack Mountains. Her ease amid highly vertical spaces of trees, mountains and tall buildings is projected onto these elevated perspectives of contemporary landscape.

Exhibition runs until October 8th, 2016

Fox Gallery NYC is pleased to exhibit two artists whose observed world is transformed by internal vision and perception. In the Alaska paintings 2015 – 2016 of David Pettibone, trees share the position of subject with the actual paint. Citing Lucien Freud and John Constable as powerful influences, he reworks his paintings according to the changing light and conditions, building up the surface to a highly tactile and breathing presence.

An intimate world of monkeys, birds, reptiles, and insects, aggressively guarding their turf in the tropics reign supreme in this exhibit of Owen Gray’s paintings titled – Observed, Perceived, Dreamed  selected painitngs. The works are teaming with nature trying to survive. This particular cross section of wildlife juxtaposes mussels blackening water with snakes, frogs and musical instrument-like symbolic creatures. Other paintings include dug out boats colliding with each other.

Opening Reception is on Saturday April 16th – 4:00 – 7:00.
