Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition at Susan Eley Fine Art

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition, opening with a reception on Thursday, November 15, 6-8 pm. The exhibition, comprised of 17 encaustics and oil paintings by New Jersey-based artist Lisa Pressman, and 17 acrylic paintings on canvas, acrylite and mixed media studies on paper by Korean-born artist Soonae Tark, will remain on view through December 27, 2018.

This is Soonae Tark’s first major exhibition with SEFA, having participated in the group show “Korean Art Now ” (2015). We are delighted to once again collaborate with curator Heekyoung Song, whose gallery Artflow focuses on contemporary Korean artists, to feature Tark’s paintings.

Soonae Tark’s studio in Sunnyside, Queens is awash in color. Canvases in bright orange, blue, hot pink and red line the walls. Tark’s signature painting is made up of a bright colored background furnished with towers of geometric forms, each a different size, shape and color. Tark’s repertory of shapes includes oblongs, rectangles, squares, wedge-shaped triangles and circles. Each shape is lovingly hand drawn, never perfectly symmetrical and always imperfect, reflecting the realities of an imperfect world.

Lisa Pressman exhibited with SEFA in the group show “Making Their Mark” (2011), the two-person show “Mapping a Place” (2014) and most recently at Art Toronto 2018. In some ways this exhibition represents a retrospective for Lisa Pressman. While the paintings on view are recent, they reflect and refer to 30 years of her content and mark making. Recurring themes of hash marks, vertical mark making, and symbols of vessels and containers are present.

 

Susan Eley Fine Art presents “The Night Garden”

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Arts is pleased to present Allison Green’s in “The Night Garden” from April 19th to May 31st. Green’s paintings celebrate plant forms enveloped in darkness, but illuminated by starry skies; migrating butterflies driven by their near mythic celestial navigation systems; and African Weaver Birds displaying their spectacular nest-making skills in surreal and allegorical settings. With each exhibition the artist has expanded the botanical content from single trees, bushes and weeds to now entire gardens–teeming with growth and rich with animal and plant life. Depicting plants blooming and thriving during the night, her cast of anthropomorphic characters includes Starlings, Stargazer Lilies, King and Queen Proteas, Peace Lilies, Royal Mushrooms and Monarch Butterflies. Enveloped in darkness yet illuminated by the starry sky, Green’s lush and mystical environments invite viewers to sit amidst the gardens of metaphors and uncover the stories within. 

Artist’s reception April 19th – 6:00 – 9:00.

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
