Susan English’s Polymer Colorfield Paintings at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

 

Kathryn Markel Fine Art presents Susan English, “Intervals” on view October 14th – November 25th, 2017.

An interval can signify the transition between places, events, or time. It is in these spaces that Susan English thrives. Her works are specifically calibrated sequences of intervals, activated by those particular moments of passage between color and surface. These narrative relationships can either evoke a sense of vastness or of intimacy.

An interval can also signify a pause, a moment to stop and take a breath between bouts of activity. With its tranquil palette and ability to draw you into a meditative space as you get lost in its layers, English’s work represents an opportunity to take this breath. She creates a catalyst for the immersive experience she makes room for when finding inspiration; a chance to solely get lost in observation.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Recent Paintings

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Lisa Breslow, “Recent Paintings” on view October 14th – November 25th, 2017.

Lisa Breslow’s landscapes and cityscapes are an exercise in contrasts. Both the natural world and architectural grit have a place in her work, highlighting the pull of New York City created by these opposing forces existing side-by-side. Breslow distills her depictions of our surroundings down to their essence, creating atmospheric scenes activated by mood, energy, and light rather than a literal portrayal. Her streets and parks feel familiar, but not quite your own.

Susan Nelly curates Blooming Emotions at Rafael Gallery

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

Beatriz Elorza’s “Blooming Emotions” at the Rafael Gallery, is curated by Susan Nelly, and features two bodies of work by the Spanish artist. The abstract paintings are infused with the atmosphere and spirit of the two cities, New York and London, where the artist has lived and worked, and reflect, in vivid color and motion, her experience of their energies.

Elorza’s larger than life works present a wonderful conundrum, walking a tightrope between abstract and representational art, with the latter serving as a point of entry, inviting us to a deeper exploration of the emotional content. These compositions reference naturalist illustration in their focus on the subject and lack of fear of negative space, but the artist’s mark is pure New York School. Her works especially bring to mind the brightness and stripped-down clarity of the late paintings of Willem de Kooning. It is a wholly new synthesis of aesthetics that evokes an atmosphere of the wonder, infused with a sense of “deja vu.”

The exhibition is  is on view throughout the month of October. Opening reception with the artist October 3rd, 6pm – 8pm.
