Elisa Contemporary Art – “Through her Eyes: A Southern California Perspective of our World”.

Friday, February 24th, 2017

Elisa Contemporary Art is pleased to present “Through her Eyes:  A Southern California Perspective of our World“. This two-woman show features Southern California Abstract artists Kimber Berry and Stephanie Cate. The show runs through May 25th.

The artists interpret the universe in art – revealing their impressions of our environment on earth both naturally created and impacted by our human interactions, as well as our surrounding planets.

The exhibit will include two series by Kimber Berry  – Liquid Landscapes and Plastic Gardens. (Thank You for the Magic Carpet Ride 2014- featured above) Berry’s work represents the intersection of technology, nature and humanity.  Her paintings are boldly colorful, in constant motion and multi-dimensional.  She masterfully integrates cut and layered digital elements imposed on paper and vinyl with pure paint creating a dance between the virtual world and the organic universe.

Emerging Los Angeles artist, Stephanie Cate, takes  traveling far into space…approximately 390 million miles…and more precisely to the planet Jupiter.  The exhibit will feature the Europa series, both paintings on Wood Panel, and studies on paper.  This series is based on the moon, Europa and Cate’s fascination with this planet, it’s structure and the potential for life.

Time / Frame – Sharon Katz and Véronique Sunatori at Studio Sixty Six (23/Feb – 25/Mar)

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

Studio Sixty Six presents Time / Frame –  Sharon Katz and Véronique Sunatori an exhibition running from 23rd February to 25th March.

“Staging in the sense we are talking about is a kind of framing; in theatre, the stage is the frame that allows us to make sense of what is to follow – that the execution wasn’t really an execution, that the newlyweds aren’t really married. While not a part of the performance itself, the frame is what allows us to see it as a performance.”

Chris Fleming & John O’Carroll, The Art of the Hoax, 47

Sharon Katz and Véronique Sunatori, two artists at disparate points in their lives and careers, explore the themes of temporality and materiality through their contrastive but complementary works.

An accomplished animator and filmmaker, Sharon Katz brings her mixed media work incorporating pages of encyclopedias, ink, paint and found objects to the exhibition. Katz’s works depict movement and action, merging the stasis of her painted frames with the vitality in her work, notable in String Theory, where the tennis player yearns to engage below the glass with the ball, finding itself in a “perpetual state of suspended animation.” Katz has only recently begun working with paint and its role in her work varies within each piece – from background to foreground, from heavy touches to light. Also recently designing sets for theatrical production, Katz is cognizant of the ways in which each work becomes a storyboard, a natural extension from animation.

Véronique Sunatori, currently working towards her MFA at York University, creates works that offer alternative perspectives, as can easily be seen in her series of severed and modified frames, effectively reintroducing the “staging” of artwork as the art itself, albeit disjointed from its original purpose and appearance. Sunatori also incorporates her identity, born to a Japanese father and Québécoise mother, to her Portraits series, wherein she has drawn over the glass covering photographic portraits of the artist, and her Skillfully series, which references traditional Japanese wood and paper screens. For Sunatori, invoking sculptural forms allows for her work to breathe conceptually and both asks for and offers up alternative points of view.

Staged together in the juxtaposing space of the gallery, the performativity accomplished through the two artists’ works is present, provoking debate on the functionality of staging and framing and, indeed, of a suspension of disbelief.

Bloom: Charlotte Hardy and Sally Stafford at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery (4 – 25 Feb)

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Sarah Wiseman Gallery is pleased to announce ‘Bloom’ with Charlotte Hardy and Sally Stafford, a joyous, beautiful exhibition exploring colour and pattern interpreting floral forms.

Painter and illustrator Charlotte Hardy finds inspiration in decoration and pattern found in the everyday. Exploring arrangements of pleasing design such as flowers in vases, a still life of a dining table or a shop window display, Charlotte’s work is both loosely expressive and closely observed. Her brushwork is often simple and straightforward but also contain studies of wallpaper design, textile pattern or decoration of ceramics. Take a look at available works here.

Sally Stafford is well known for her expressive landscape painting, using mixed media. Colours and textures develop through application of multiple layers of paint, ink, wax and pigment. There is an element of impressionism in her painting in the way she approaches her work, the intuitive feel of her brushwork, however the mix of different media keeps it resolutely contemporary.

Karin Weber Gallery presents ‘Yangon Made My Heart Beat Fast” New Contemporary Art from Myanmar from 17 February to 30 March, 2017, a show which explores the blossoming of individual expression, creativity, and the emergence of new voices and viewpoints in an evolving Myanmar. As newfound freedom engulfs the Burmese capital, change occurs at a breathtaking pace.
The exhibition features work by eight of Myanmar’s most compelling experimental artists working across a range of media, including painting, performance, and photography. The artists – Htein Lin, Aung Khaing, Chan Aye, Phyu Mon, Zun Ei Phyu, Thynn Lei Nwe, Myint San Myint, and Khin Thethtar Latt (Nora) – represent multiple generations of artists who share a common interest in working on subject matter and formats outside the realist schools of art favored by the previous military governments. These artists operated on the perimeter of the traditional gallery scene where they carved out a space for themselves as modern artists amid cultural preferences for the traditional.

About Vaughn Horsman

Vaughn is an artist who thinks a lot about the big patterns we live inside. Most of the time he makes sculptures out of wood, and acrylic. He also considers himself a painter because he sometimes puts paint onto things, before cutting them up with Power Tools.

About Venetia Norris

Venetia enjoys the spontaneity of drawing from life and communicating a sense of place. She only feel’s she fully understands something if it is drawn. Venetia love’s the sound of a pencil leaving a mark, varying its pressure, looking carefully at what she is drawing while the work evolves upon the paper. Venetia uses a variety of materials including graphite, pen & ink, paint, charcoal, gold/silver leaf upon paper and board.
