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.

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
