Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents BTW

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present BTW, Deborah Zlotsky’s third solo show at the gallery. BTW, Zlotsky’s new series of abstract paintings, arose from an unexpected muse: a garage sale purchase of striped bed sheets from the 1970s.  The vintage sheets’ rich colors and repetitive patterns trigger a synesthetic response in Zlotsky, recalling her earliest memories of space, light and movement, and a childhood when sleep came easily, long before the all-consuming pull of electronic media. The stripes convey order and beauty, and a depth of references including the history of geometric abstract painting, the measurements of and fluctuations within human and geological time, and the way people stack and pile to process the everyday glut of items in their lives.

“I’m interested in how responsive actions eventually reveal structures and how a cycle of accumulation, rupture, and shift opens up a new syntax,” Zlotsky says. That language consists of flat areas of varying colors and sizes; the interruptions of paint drips, stains and abrasions; moments where the stripes transmute into volumetric planes and forms; and the addition of trompe l’oeil supports and prosthetics to prop up or balance the whole. The paintings materialize out of a friction between intention and coincidence, much like the daily processing and deciphering required to be in the world.

 Show is ongoing and closes June 17, 2017.

Adah Rose Gallery Presents – In this Moment

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

The Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington, MD is pleased to present the two person show, In This Moment, featuring the works of artists Anne C. Smith and Christina Tenaglia. The show runs through June 4th, 2017.

Night holds a special fascination for Anne Smith.  She combines the intense black of charcoal with delicate lines of graphite in her drawings inspired by memory and landscape.  Her art is beautifully deliberate; a glimpse into another world.  With elegant lines, Anne creates an awareness of spatial relationships.  Her work suggests a vastness with the quietude and stillness of night. Hints of form or space inspire questions and observations about the visual language of minimalism and abstraction.

Christina Tenaglia’s sculptures are in a continual state of doing and undoing, arriving at a perfect moment of repose.  Using mostly wood and paint, each sculpture is carefully constructed and inspires a playful exploration of its parts.  They are fragments, passing thoughts, rigorous, but also full of wonder. Christina’s works on paper are simple gestures and expansive thoughts, suggestive of architecture and landscape.  Using pen and ink and bits of collage, she creates compositions that are both abstract and recognizable, full of whimsical and curious details.

Susan Eley Fine Art presents Found in Translation

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present their spring show FOUND IN TRANSLATION a two-person exhibition featuring new paintings by Franco-British artist Sarah Picon, and paintings by Los Angeles based artist Chase Langford.

This is Sarah Picon’s second solo show at the gallery. Her intimate still lifes, portraits and landscapes evoke European Modernism in its many artistic styles and movements, glimpsed through a contemporary lens. In the South Gallery, the grouping of more than a dozen paintings include small works in acrylic of fruit or flowers resting on tables, portraits of women in profile or in contemplation and seated at a table.

Chase Langford has been featured in two group exhibitions at SEFA and one solo exhibition. The selected abstract paintings in the North Gallery are drawn from his Morphic series of biomorphic and organic forms, and his Del Mar series, featuring a more linear style, suggesting striations or waterways.  As we look at Langford’s paintings, a funny thing happens to the mind. We recall birds eye views of landscapes glimpsed from airplanes. But seen from a different vantage point, we could be looking into a cross section of a magnificent rock or gemstone.

The exhibition is from April 20-June 1, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 20, 6-8 PM.
