Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery presents Rob Atkins ON THE ROAD

Rob Atkins is a Vancouver-based photographer specializing in architecture, interior and fine art. Since beginning his career in New York in the 1980s, his work has been used by an international array of clients.

In the fall of 2019 Glitterati Editions will release Rob’s second book, Earth River Sky – a collection of a decade of photography made in northern New Mexico.

Exhibition Statement                     

Diving along the endless highways and roads of the American southwest, I feel at times as if the car’s windshield has transformed into a large screen in a movie theater. An endless montage of signage, many from a long-gone, less homogenized, and nationally-branded era stream past, guideposts to an America that now exists mostly as a memory.

I always traveled alone, which made these trips a spiritual experience, much like my own private Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage. In that sense, the “journey” of creating these images was as much one across the physical landscape as it was an interior transit.

In the words of John Steinbeck: “We do not take a trip, a trip takes us.”

Susan Eley Fine Art presents A Sense of Place: New Works by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present A Sense of Place: New Work by Rachel Burgess & James Isherwood, opening on Thursday, February 28, with a reception from 6-8 pm, and remaining on view through April 11. The exhibition features monotypes by Rachel Burgess and paintings on wood panel and paper by James Isherwood. This exhibition is Burgess’s second one at SEFA, and Isherwood, a Gallery Artist since 2008, has been featured in many group and two person exhibitions at SEFA. 

The coastal landscapes of Maine have been the main source of inspiration for Rachel Burgess for many years. Burgess’s ongoing fascination with how land meets water— along rivers, lakes and the seaside—fuels the creation of her stunning, expressive painterly monotypes. Burgess’s landscapes are spare, punctuated by an occasional house or lighthouse. Trees and bushes sometimes line the coastal edges, but they are not the main attraction, which is always where the water meets the uninterrupted horizon line, where grassy green melts seamlessly into watery edges.

In James Isherwood’s recent landscapes, elements are rarely as expected. Skies are bright pink or yellow, the grass is not always green and the mountain ranges can be neon orange. In these enigmatic paintings Isherwood has found a place where fantasy and reality merge to create a third zone, led by imagination and memory. An Isherwood landscape might evoke the memory of a real place, tickle the feeling of a hillside or a pool of water. Yet, these are impossible, surreal scenes, built up with fragmented, architectural structures, set in otherworldly landscapes; yet compositions are utterly harmonious with elements, man made and natural, all in synch. Painter Rene Magritte comes to mind in the clean edges of fantastic tree lines, silhouetted against night skies, populated with a density of tiny stars.

ODETTA presents – Bebop

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present Bebop, an inaugural exhibition in the gallery’s new location, in Chelsea!

Bebop brings together the work of two of ODETTA’s best artists, Nancy Baker and Richard Bottwin.

Their works are at once in contrast to one another, angular Bauhaus forms in wood play against organic, Baroque collages on paper. Color is a main ingredient for both artists, who are at the top of their game.

From white box to black box, come visit ODETTA in the newly opened 1st Dibs Gallery in the iconic Tunnel Building

Exhibition is ongoing until March 11th, 2019

Truth and Beauty present Spellbound by photographer Ken Lorenz

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Gallery is pleased to present Spellbound. The show opens on February 23rd and runs to March 9th. The artist Ken Lorenz will be in attendance for the opening from 1 – 4pm.

 

EXHIBITION STATEMENT
“Inspiration for my image-making comes primarily from Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
a Latin American author who developed the novel literary genre, Magic Realism, as a basis for storytelling.
‘Magic Realism’ is defined as “making use of magic elements in order to create an alternative  to accepted reality.
Time exists in a kind of timeless fluidity.”
While each series is different, this is the overarching concept weaving them together.
The images in this exhibition have no distinct psychological relationship;  yet the distortion –
obscurity and ambiguity evident in each photograph —  establishes the artistic intention. ”

Images from three portfolios are featured in this exhibition:
In The Shadow of Puppets
Words in Search of a Photograph
