Brian Neish’s Deepest Harmony at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Ivy Brown Gallery proudly presents Brian Neish’s first solo New York exhibition:  ‘Deepest Harmony’. ‘Deepest Harmony’ is a series created specifically for this exhibition and further develops Neish’s exploration of time and experience through the layering of paint, color and texture. Recently, Neish has invented a fresh approach using loose painted panels before manipulating them to create finished paintings. For this exhibition there are, among other works, 10 pieces, each one having 9 panels giving a possible 95,126,814,720 permutations. It would take the viewer over 3,000 years to explore all the available combinations in just one piece.

Neish’s interest is unswerving in expressing something of the actual properties inherent to oil paint as a material in its own right. Paint is dragged and spread across its support revealing and concealing older layers underneath: at times spilling over the edge to add an element of chaos within the imposed formality of the depicted shapes, celebrating the paint’s subliminal qualities, and allowing the marks to take you where they will.

Opening Reception Monday, September 11th, 6-8pm

Exhibition dates September 12th-October 18th

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

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

Vera Schuhmacher Fine Art is pleased to present a series of major oil paintings by French artist Michel Maly. The exhibition takes place at Wimbledon Fine Art 41 Church Road, Wimbledon Village, London SW19 5DQ  from Sunday 1st November when a reception will be held. For more information and to attend, contact Vera Schuhmacher.

This summer I had the great pleasure to drive to Montélimar in the South of France and meet Michel Maly and his wife Jacqueline at their lovely country house, explore his paint imbued studio and choose a selection of wonderful paintings to bring back to Wimbledon for this exciting exhibition. The artist was born in Blois, France in 1936, started painting in 1955 and exhibiting in 1959. Since then he has shown regularly throughout Europe, America and the Far East. In 1968 he was awarded the Prix Fénéon by the University of Paris and in 2009 he was presented ‘La Médaille de la ville de Montélimar’. During his long career Michel has painted almost on a daily basis, “I paint because I love people”, has published four books and has had a film dedicated to his work. Although we have enjoyed a few of the artist’s works over the years we are now privileged to present this major solo UK exhibition of his recent oeuvres. This will include delightful views in New York, Tuscany, Venice and France, seascapes and still lifes and Michel’s unique and amusing café scenes in Paris. His paintings are to be found in numerous private and corporate collections and in various museums in France.

A special thanks to Vera Schuhmacher, representative and friend of the Malys, for her kind cooperation in organising this exhibition. Do come and soak up the ‘joie de vivre’ in Michel’s paintings with us at the private view.
