Susan Nelly curates Blooming Emotions at Rafael Gallery

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

Beatriz Elorza’s “Blooming Emotions” at the Rafael Gallery, is curated by Susan Nelly, and features two bodies of work by the Spanish artist. The abstract paintings are infused with the atmosphere and spirit of the two cities, New York and London, where the artist has lived and worked, and reflect, in vivid color and motion, her experience of their energies.

Elorza’s larger than life works present a wonderful conundrum, walking a tightrope between abstract and representational art, with the latter serving as a point of entry, inviting us to a deeper exploration of the emotional content. These compositions reference naturalist illustration in their focus on the subject and lack of fear of negative space, but the artist’s mark is pure New York School. Her works especially bring to mind the brightness and stripped-down clarity of the late paintings of Willem de Kooning. It is a wholly new synthesis of aesthetics that evokes an atmosphere of the wonder, infused with a sense of “deja vu.”

The exhibition is  is on view throughout the month of October. Opening reception with the artist October 3rd, 6pm – 8pm.

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
