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.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Josette Urso’s Moon Palace,

Monday, September 10th, 2018

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Moon Palace, Josette Urso’s fourth solo show with the gallery. Josette Urso’s paintings are driven by a sense of urgency. Working from her observations of her surrounding environment, her inspiration is in a constant state of flux as the light, weather, and elements of any given scene changes as she works. Whether working in plein air during her travels or looking out over her sweeping view of Brooklyn from her studio, Urso responds to the shapes, forms, light, and experience of place and seeks to capture that in heavily worked, frenetic abstraction. Urso begins with broad sweeps of color, paralleling the flow

The show runs from September 13th – October 20th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts Presents Just Beneath The Surface – Stephanie London

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Just Beneath the Surface – Stephanie London. There is a narrative undercurrent to Stephanie London’s still life paintings that give a sense that her arranged objects are like actors on a stage. Sourcing her objects from thrift stores, eBay, or flea markets, they have an inherent nostalgic history to them, and as they are used again and again in her paintings, they become a familiar cast of characters. London’s prolonged study of these objects is apparent in their composition, for there is not only evidence of a finely attuned observation to how they work with one another in light, color, shape, and mood, but the space around and between them bristles with a mysterious energy over how they may relate in their uncanny juxtaposition. This intuitive process lends a sense of London’s hand and subconscious, giving the scene a touch of surrealism.

The exhibition runs from September 13th to October 20th.
