Ivy Brown Gallery presents Normaltown by Carol John

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Normaltown by artist Carol John. The artist’s work been widely exhibited in Georgia and New York City. Venues have included The High Museum of Art, MOCA GA, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and Ms. John’s work is in the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta .

Carol John’s art reflects her encounters with mainstream modern artists-showing the obvious influence of Guston and other individualists like Marsden Hartley and Alfred Julio Jensen-it also suggests an appreciation of certain ‘outsider’ artists, as with her improvisational approach to composition. Like quilters of Gee Bend, John often begins a work with little idea of where it will take her pictorially. She might find a composition’s repeating pattern needs to be squeezed to fit within a pictures margins or detoured around a corner for completion as if the papers edge were merely a slight obstacle. In their unrestricted manner, the paintings have much more in common with childhood doodles, mindless of convention and heedless of expectations. That is not to say they are directionless. Guided by insight, they recall the paintings of visionary artists like Howard Finster or J.B Murray, both from Georgia.

— Dennis Harper, Curator and Artist

The opening reception is on February 13th from 5:00 – 8:00. The exhibit is ongoing until March 13th.

Ground Floor Gallery presents Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean

Friday, February 9th, 2018

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And . . . we haven’t forgotten you!

On Tuesday February 13th, from 6 – 9 at Brooklyn’s NU Hotel, come to Ground Floor Gallery’s winter pop-up Sugar is Sweet: A Valentine’s Art Pop-up for the Caribbean.

The gallery will be selling original, small art works – conceived as Valentines – by dozens of local, emerging artists. Each will be priced at $75 with $25 from each sale supporting hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and St. John: two Caribbean-American territories that share a fraught history in the sugar industry and are oft synonymous with sunny escapes. The day-to-day reality doesn’t necessarily reflect that vision – especially now, mere months after Hurricanes Irma + Maria devastated these cherished islands.

This show is a follow-up to the Gallery’s successful 2017 show “Marked Urgent,” that raised $1,000 for the Committee to Protect Journalists from dozens of your $25 donations!  This year, they’re hoping to repeat history with a new partner and location: Brooklyn’s NU Hotel at 85 Smith St. Brooklyn, NY .

Reflections in a Blue Lake: Reduction Woodblock Prints by Chen Li at the Coningsby Gallery (19-24/Feb)

Monday, February 5th, 2018

In February, Katrine Levin Galleries present Reflections in a Blue Lake: Reduction Woodblock Prints by Chen Li at the Coningsby Gallery in Fitzrovia from the 19th to the 24th of February.

Chen Li lives and works in Kunming, the capital of China’s spectacular Yunnan Province. Born into an artistic family in 1971, he grew up surrounded by the avant-garde artists of the post-Cultural Revolution, equally inspired by the works of Bruegel and de Kooning as of Guan Xiu and Zhao Wu-ji.

Last year, Katrine Levin Galleries  introduced Chen Li’s lyrical paintings in his first London exhibition, “Paintings from the Heart”. This time, we shine the spotlight on Chen Li’s extraordinary woodblock prints, made using a rare reduction woodblock technique developed in Yunnan.

The “reduction” woodblock printing technique involves stamping all of the colours from a single woodblock. Each step along the way destroys the previous one until the woodblock itself is destroyed.
