ARTful exhibiting works by Furrah Syed

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

ARTful is delighted to be exhibiting four pieces of artwork by  Furrah Syed and hope you enjoy the new selection of work now on display on the ground floor reception.

Furrah Syed is a London-based abstract artist who specialises in painting heavily-textured canvases using acrylics, oils and mixed-media.  She studied Fine Art and Textile Design along with Art History in London.

Furrah’s works show a strong commitment to colour, texture and movement. Focusing primarily on ‘pure’ colour, Furrah uses the canvas as a vehicle to promote the energy created by the interaction of pigment with brushes and various other tools. Her bold experimentation using mixed media have been well received within the art community. Her paintings have a very strong visual effect and compel the viewer to delve into the world of a purely abstract expression of vivid emotion and raw energy.

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Timeshapers

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present Timeshapers, recent work by Paul O’Connor, Mimi Saltzman and Johnny Wong, opening Saturday, Dec.1 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The exhibition runs through Dec. 28.

Timeshapers brings together three friends who met five years ago in the art community of Taos, NM. One of them, Mimi Saltzman, was given an antique hourglass, which became her “shape muse”. The other two, Paul O’Connor and Johnny Wong, subvert the traditional rectangular form of painting by employing hexagons and quadrilaterals or rotating the square to a diamond shape. While Saltzman and Wong specifically address time as a subject of their work, O’Connor’s wall pieces, with their “meditation holes”, encourage the viewer to experience mindful expansion, which can temporarily alter a viewer’s perception of time. The three friends, based in Taos, Sag Harbor and New York, bridge time-zones and geographies with their artistic relationship. When Johnny Wong stacks two diamond shaped paintings, one on top of the other, the resulting shape nods to the hourglass in Saltzman’s work. Similarly, O’Connor’s geometric shapes include diamonds which echo Wong’s.

Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition at Susan Eley Fine Art

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Lisa Pressman & Soonae Tark: A Two-Person Exhibition, opening with a reception on Thursday, November 15, 6-8 pm. The exhibition, comprised of 17 encaustics and oil paintings by New Jersey-based artist Lisa Pressman, and 17 acrylic paintings on canvas, acrylite and mixed media studies on paper by Korean-born artist Soonae Tark, will remain on view through December 27, 2018.

This is Soonae Tark’s first major exhibition with SEFA, having participated in the group show “Korean Art Now ” (2015). We are delighted to once again collaborate with curator Heekyoung Song, whose gallery Artflow focuses on contemporary Korean artists, to feature Tark’s paintings.

Soonae Tark’s studio in Sunnyside, Queens is awash in color. Canvases in bright orange, blue, hot pink and red line the walls. Tark’s signature painting is made up of a bright colored background furnished with towers of geometric forms, each a different size, shape and color. Tark’s repertory of shapes includes oblongs, rectangles, squares, wedge-shaped triangles and circles. Each shape is lovingly hand drawn, never perfectly symmetrical and always imperfect, reflecting the realities of an imperfect world.

Lisa Pressman exhibited with SEFA in the group show “Making Their Mark” (2011), the two-person show “Mapping a Place” (2014) and most recently at Art Toronto 2018. In some ways this exhibition represents a retrospective for Lisa Pressman. While the paintings on view are recent, they reflect and refer to 30 years of her content and mark making. Recurring themes of hash marks, vertical mark making, and symbols of vessels and containers are present.

 

Nature of Non-Existence @ Gazelli Art House

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Opening on the 29th of November

Gazelli Art House presents Nature of Non-Existence, a new solo exhibition by Recycle Group, the award- winning artist duo known for their pioneering use of technologies from Virtual Reality (VR) to Augmented Reality (AR) throughout their practice. In their new exhibition, the artists unlock a hidden world via the use of an AR app available on the viewer’s mobile devices.

In the words of Recycle Group, “The main idea behind Nature of Non-Existence is that the visitor can change their perspective to a machine’s eyes and feel how the world is inside the brains of a machine. There are two points of view in the world: a human’s and a machine’s, a perspective that we do not see and doesn’t exist for us. The experience gives the viewer a chance to feel like a machine; not just to see it, but to feel it.

DAVID MORRISON: NATURE’S EPHEMERA at Garvey|Simon

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present David Morrison: Nature’s Ephemera, an exhibition featuring the artist’s realist colored pencil drawings of the specters of the natural world.  Morrison toggles seamlessly between realism and abstraction, creating highly complex compositions from his observation of branches, leaves, and abandoned animal habitats. This is Morrison’s third solo show in New York, and his fourth solo show with Garvey|Simon.  The opening reception will take place on Thursday November 15, 6-8pm. The artist will be present. 

“My drawings capture the degeneration cycle of plant materials and how they echo the living conditions of man and nature. I am interested in capturing the reality of their existence, with all the imperfections, echoing their fragile existence in nature.”
