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.

Susan English’s Polymer Colorfield Paintings at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

 

Kathryn Markel Fine Art presents Susan English, “Intervals” on view October 14th – November 25th, 2017.

An interval can signify the transition between places, events, or time. It is in these spaces that Susan English thrives. Her works are specifically calibrated sequences of intervals, activated by those particular moments of passage between color and surface. These narrative relationships can either evoke a sense of vastness or of intimacy.

An interval can also signify a pause, a moment to stop and take a breath between bouts of activity. With its tranquil palette and ability to draw you into a meditative space as you get lost in its layers, English’s work represents an opportunity to take this breath. She creates a catalyst for the immersive experience she makes room for when finding inspiration; a chance to solely get lost in observation.

 

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.

Susan Eley Fine Art presents Found in Translation

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present their spring show FOUND IN TRANSLATION a two-person exhibition featuring new paintings by Franco-British artist Sarah Picon, and paintings by Los Angeles based artist Chase Langford.

This is Sarah Picon’s second solo show at the gallery. Her intimate still lifes, portraits and landscapes evoke European Modernism in its many artistic styles and movements, glimpsed through a contemporary lens. In the South Gallery, the grouping of more than a dozen paintings include small works in acrylic of fruit or flowers resting on tables, portraits of women in profile or in contemplation and seated at a table.

Chase Langford has been featured in two group exhibitions at SEFA and one solo exhibition. The selected abstract paintings in the North Gallery are drawn from his Morphic series of biomorphic and organic forms, and his Del Mar series, featuring a more linear style, suggesting striations or waterways.  As we look at Langford’s paintings, a funny thing happens to the mind. We recall birds eye views of landscapes glimpsed from airplanes. But seen from a different vantage point, we could be looking into a cross section of a magnificent rock or gemstone.

The exhibition is from April 20-June 1, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 20, 6-8 PM.
