JOAN GRUBIN: The Detritus Series at Garvey|Simon

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Garvey|Simon is pleased to present JOAN GRUBIN: The Detritus Series, an exhibition featuring compact and complex collages created with colorful ephemera from the artist’s studio. Grubin’s one rule in the creation of these works is that no intentional marks be added. These intimate structures are a collaboration between intention and chance. The pieces stay true to what Grubin explores with her larger paper works and installations, creating “optical experiences which raise questions about the discrepancy between what we see and what we know.”

This is Grubin’s first solo show with Garvey|Simon. The exhibition is ongoing through December 23, 2017.

Take One Shape – Laura Jane Scott at the Foundry Gallery from November 23rd

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

Take One Shape by Laura Jane Scott is presented at The Foundry Gallery from November 23rd to January 12.

Laura Jane Scott’s vividly abstract compositions embrace not only the two essential elements of Abstract Hard Edge Painting, colour and structure, but also principles of Conceptual Art. All the works in ‘TAKE ONE SHAPE’ are derived from one simple shape – the rhomboid. They echo paintings by Ellsworth Kelly, with Scott’s use of precise geometric abstractions all having the same core structure but subject to infinitely subtle variations. ‘TAKE ONE SHAPE’ showcases a hybrid of painting and sculpture, a refined visual vocabulary of form and colour.

Scott’s studio is full of rulers, piles of graph paper, scalpels, pens and painted paper. Working in series, she explores the idea of ‘possibilities from limitations.’ Using just one geometric shape as the starting point and drawing on principles from Minimalist Architecture, Hard Edge Abstraction and Conceptual Art she takes this basic geometric form and draws out all the possible arrangements that can be made by laying one shape on top of another. The drawings are small-scale diagrams which are always made on the same style of graph paper. This strict approach hints at both mathematical and architectural practices. What would seem an austere procedural way of making art is precisely what makes it interesting. With her systematic rigour, Scott has successfully dissected the fundamental elements of painting by not only looking at the surface of the painting but seeing it as a way of creating a visual index in which to document the interaction of form, colour and the space they inhabit.

JoAnne Artman Gallery, presents: “Saddle Up” New Works by Billy Schenck

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Galloping horses, blood orange sunsets, dusty cowboys – you can almost feel the rising heat from the sun-warmed earth. Billy Schenck has a definitive flair for highlighting the drama, and evoking the action of classic Westerns along with their corresponding mythology. The American Frontier holds a special place in our nation’s history, as well as in our imaginations. JoAnne Artman Gallery, is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Billy Schenck, capturing the persevering nature of the myths and dreams of the Old West.

In subject, Schenck goes for the iconic imagery of the Wild, Wild West – cowboys and Indians, sunsets and gunfire. Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work.

Fall/Winter 2017 Artist’s Reception: Thursday, November 16th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm. Show runs from November 16th, 2017 – January 2018
