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.

Figuratively Speaking: A Group Exhibition at Susan Eley Fine Art

Monday, September 24th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is delighted to share “Figuratively Speaking: A Group Show.” The some two-dozen paintings by Carole Eisner, Ana Garcés Kiley, Emily LaCour, Jongwang Lee, Kathy Osborn, Betsy Podlach, Ruth Shively, Corran Shrimpton and Bradley Wood explore the many reasons why artists paint the human figure. Painters paint people to tell a story about the human condition; to explore relationships, romantic or platonic; to document an experience, often travel related; to reveal cultural behaviors or traditions often outside of the artist’s personal experience; or to work through a fantasy, a yearning. In an effort to explore the many ways in which a figure can occupy a space, physically or emotionally, the gallery has selected a range of figurative art, from the languid abstractions of people lounging on beds by Emily LaCour, to the highly defined depictions of doll house figures, set in detailed interiors, as conjured by former illustrator-turned painter Kathy Osborn.

The exhibition is on view until October 25th.

James Moore – All That I’ve Seen at Susan Eley Fine Art

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of “All That I’ve Seen: Paintings, Sculpture and Works on Paper by JAMES MOORE (1938-2013)”, on view from June 27-August 30, 2018. This is the first exhibition of James Moore’s artwork since he passed away in 2013 at the age of 75. The exhibition celebrates the artist’s life, which was rich in art, steeped in color and full of the love of family and friends, with a reception on Wednesday, June 27, 6-8 pm.  All That I’ve Seen is the first exhibition of Moore’s art at SEFA. The gallery is honored to host this retrospective showing, the most comprehensive exhibition to date of the artist’s oeuvre. The exhibition includes 12 large acrylic paintings on canvas, dozens of works on paper in Cray-Pas, colored pencil and paint, and a selection of bronze table-top sculptures.

“I don’t see shapes as much as I see the energy of elements interacting to move, stop, support or explode. I mostly use clean bright color to keep my world hot and alive. My paintings are like a snap-shot record – trapping the moments of an event where something beautiful happened.”

– James Moore (1938 – 2013)
