Joanne Freeman’s My Generation at Katheryn Markel Fine Arts

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Joanne Freeman, “My Generation”

On View February 15th – March 24th, 2018

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present My Generation, Joanne Freeman’s second solo show with the gallery.

Joanne Freeman has been feeling nostalgic. Noticing the parallels between the current political climate and the nature of the 1960s and ‘70s when she grew up, she has been interrogating the aesthetics and societal attitudes of that era in her latest work. When protest and rebellion dominated the culture and traditional institutions were under attack, music and art signaled your identity more than ever before. However, as Freeman began her education, the notions of important art were limited to the male and Western perspectives. As her own artistic identity formed, it developed as a reaction against that lineage. Female attributes and aesthetics became a choice, rather than a burden. 

Freeman’s paintings incorporate elements found in architecture, design, popular culture, and art history. Her reductive compositions and pure color mimic the low-tech graphics utilized in mid-century media, and allude to color field paintings of the 1960s. Masking her forms out beforehand gives her paintings a stencil-like feel, a nod to the printmaking techniques that were also popular at the time, as well as Matisse’s cut outs. As seen in the above painting –Space _18_1, 2018, oil on linen.

JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: 
“THE NEW FIGURATIVE” Featuring America Martin

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

America Martin’s compositions of poetic juxtapositions conjure a story, with the figure as a central focal point for much of the framework. Strikingly bold, the expressive lines of Martin’s work are an assimilation of light, color, movement and form with a unique emphasis on the narrative. The imagery is familiar and transportive, steeped in personal mythology and deeply allegorical. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present a new body of work rooted in Martin’s unique approach in exploring the human form and its context.

The exhibition is the Gallery’s Winter/Spring Show. The artist’s reception is on February 8th from 6pm – 8pm.

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Danielle Riede: Wingspan,

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Danielle Riede: Wingspan, an exhibition featuring the artist’s recent abstract oil paintings. This will be the first solo show in New York and at Garvey|Simon for the Indiana-based artist. The exhibition is ongoing through December 23, 2017.

Danielle Riede imbues her abstractions with lyricism and sensitivity, using dance, gesture, and movement patterns as the basis for her new paintings. A painter as well as a lifelong dancer, Riede translates movement through space to the surface of the canvas, and allows the nuance of her gesture to inform the inflection of her brushstroke. Riede captures the ephemerality of dance in her work and transforms her canvases into portraits of performance. Riede most recently collaborated with choreographer, Stephanie Nugent and performed her own work, “Mad River Echo,” at the premiere of BIG TENT at the Indianapolis Museum of Art

JoAnne Artman Gallery, presents: “Saddle Up” New Works by Billy Schenck

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Galloping horses, blood orange sunsets, dusty cowboys – you can almost feel the rising heat from the sun-warmed earth. Billy Schenck has a definitive flair for highlighting the drama, and evoking the action of classic Westerns along with their corresponding mythology. The American Frontier holds a special place in our nation’s history, as well as in our imaginations. JoAnne Artman Gallery, is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Billy Schenck, capturing the persevering nature of the myths and dreams of the Old West.

In subject, Schenck goes for the iconic imagery of the Wild, Wild West – cowboys and Indians, sunsets and gunfire. Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work.

Fall/Winter 2017 Artist’s Reception: Thursday, November 16th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm. Show runs from November 16th, 2017 – January 2018
