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.

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Normaltown by Carol John

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Normaltown by artist Carol John. The artist’s work been widely exhibited in Georgia and New York City. Venues have included The High Museum of Art, MOCA GA, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and Ms. John’s work is in the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta .

Carol John’s art reflects her encounters with mainstream modern artists-showing the obvious influence of Guston and other individualists like Marsden Hartley and Alfred Julio Jensen-it also suggests an appreciation of certain ‘outsider’ artists, as with her improvisational approach to composition. Like quilters of Gee Bend, John often begins a work with little idea of where it will take her pictorially. She might find a composition’s repeating pattern needs to be squeezed to fit within a pictures margins or detoured around a corner for completion as if the papers edge were merely a slight obstacle. In their unrestricted manner, the paintings have much more in common with childhood doodles, mindless of convention and heedless of expectations. That is not to say they are directionless. Guided by insight, they recall the paintings of visionary artists like Howard Finster or J.B Murray, both from Georgia.

— Dennis Harper, Curator and Artist

The opening reception is on February 13th from 5:00 – 8:00. The exhibit is ongoing until March 13th.

Susan Eley Fine Art announces winter exhibition – All Her Number’d Stars

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to announce the opening of All Her Number’d Stars: Paintings, Drawings and Sculptures by Jason Noushin. This is the first solo exhibition for the artist in New York City, following the success of his participation in SEFA’s group exhibition: Beyond the Ban: Contemporary Iranian Art. Noushin was born in England and raised in Iran. He lived in London before moving to the US in 1997, where he has since lived in Connecticut. Living a life seeped in multicultures informs his work, which reflects a play between the Middle East and the West and explores the intersection of seemingly disparate elements. Returning to the language of his childhood home, Noushin incorporates Persian calligraphy in many of his paintings and sculptures. Farsi transliterations of poetry written by British literary greats such as Keats, Hawthorne and Shelley, are drawn across his canvases and reflect a reconciliation of the cultures that have shaped him.
