Garvey|Simon is pleased to present Daisy Craddock: Summer Produce, an exhibition of oil pastel diptychs fresh from the studio, by Daisy Craddock. Her subjects’ flavors and fragrances can be sensed right away, and though these works appear to be minimalist squares of color from a distance, they are decidedly realist in nature. With skin on the left and flesh on the right, the diptychs display a subtle yet detailed complexity that is created from layers of scumbled and polished oil pastels and oil sticks. Whether from a farmstand upstate or a neighboring city deli, the fleeting nature of each edible specimen is palpable in Craddock’s delicate surfaces.

JoAnne Artman Gallery NEW YORK presents Contemporary Consiousness

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

The JoAnne Artman Gallery in New York is pleased to share “Contemporary Consciousness” featuring artists James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell. The female body has long served as a muse in the arts, a lens through which the themes, issues and ongoing dialogue of the contemporary collective consciousness can be reflected. The work of James Wolanin and Jane Maxwell addresses this discourse through reflective interpretations of the feminine ideal through context, material and approach. In Wolanin’s work an idealized “snapshot” image is filtered through memories of the artist’s own personal history as in Mona Lisa of the Motorway Acrylic and Resin on Panel – featured above. Maxwell’s imagery on the other hand, while also addressing the legacy of print advertisement in the digital age, looks at its ephemerality through aggregation and accumulation. Biting into societal and personal constructs of femininity both artists commit to an encompassing approach, resulting in work that both entices and provokes.

Robin Glassman’s Lifelines at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Robin Glassman. Inspired and influenced by her illness, travels, and an obsession with collecting, her playful and, sometimes, spiritual art pieces evolve organically through spontaneous mark making and meditation.  Glassman’s works are layered and tactile, eclectic and exploratory, metaphoric and poetic.  By combining biomorphic shapes with intricate details, she plays with the blurry lines that divide the natural world from the more abstract and surreal one.

 

‘My recent body of work is directly connected to cardiopulmonary issues, based on my own extensive hospitalization, and its aftermath. As resource material for this series, I studied images and diagrams of upper body physiology.  By exploring how our organs and skeletal system coexist in the same space, I developed a better understanding of the delicate balance necessary for wellness.  Some of the pieces were made while in the hospital. I experienced the pain in bright primary colors.  Striking the page with the brush, jabbing into it and scratching out helped ease my discomfort.  Sometimes I was so tired my hand just wandered across the page.” Robin Glassman

The exhibition runs from June 6th – June 27th. Opening reception on June 6th – 6:00 – 8:00

 

Bernd Mechler’s COLOURlust now at Lisa Norris Gallery

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

COLOURlust the new exhibition at the Lisa Norris Gallery is Bernd Mechler‘s first London solo exhibition.

Bernd Mechler is known for his abstract, potent color plays of monumental size.  From early on he had little interest in the representation of reality.  At college he was encouraged to explore his own subjective impressions of reality through painting.

This is painting about painting in the tradition of Gerhard Richter ‘s grey paintings and the white paintings by Robert Ryman.  Mechler almost empties out the canvas of any objects in order to focus entirely on what he describes as a psychological confrontation with painting.  Much of what feeds his work is extracted from life around him, be it a social event, his teaching, visiting an exhibition or simply taking a walk.  His work is spontaneous and relies on the energy of his senses, emotions, intuition and thoughts as well as his perception of the world around him, all of which filters into his compositions.
