Robin Glassman’s Lifelines at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Ivy Brown Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Robin Glassman. Inspired and influenced by her illness, travels, and an obsession with collecting, her playful and, sometimes, spiritual art pieces evolve organically through spontaneous mark making and meditation.  Glassman’s works are layered and tactile, eclectic and exploratory, metaphoric and poetic.  By combining biomorphic shapes with intricate details, she plays with the blurry lines that divide the natural world from the more abstract and surreal one.

 

‘My recent body of work is directly connected to cardiopulmonary issues, based on my own extensive hospitalization, and its aftermath. As resource material for this series, I studied images and diagrams of upper body physiology.  By exploring how our organs and skeletal system coexist in the same space, I developed a better understanding of the delicate balance necessary for wellness.  Some of the pieces were made while in the hospital. I experienced the pain in bright primary colors.  Striking the page with the brush, jabbing into it and scratching out helped ease my discomfort.  Sometimes I was so tired my hand just wandered across the page.” Robin Glassman

The exhibition runs from June 6th – June 27th. Opening reception on June 6th – 6:00 – 8:00

 

Liu Feng’s ‘Stalker’, a new exhibition at Karin Weber Gallery in June

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Liu Feng’s latest solo exhibition, Stalker, will open at the Karin Weber Gallery, Hong Kong, on June 7, 2017. Highlights of the show will be recent paintings and sculptural works.

Liu Feng’s new works show a world of prowlers and chance meetings. His pleasure at mingling the mundane and the dream in early works is no longer as prominent, fate is now an existence that is heavy, yet has to be viewed with a sense of lightness. The flashing appearance of evocative sceneries and objects (horizon, fields, rivers, horses, valleys, trees, fruits, flowers, confinements and flying fish) results in a changing montage of sceneries that entails a reversal of time and the essence of fantasy in its wildest form. This is an extremely personal, visual, natural and poetic confluence, fusing the subjects and their thoughts in stills with their realities, memories and dreams.

Bernd Mechler’s COLOURlust now at Lisa Norris Gallery

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

COLOURlust the new exhibition at the Lisa Norris Gallery is Bernd Mechler‘s first London solo exhibition.

Bernd Mechler is known for his abstract, potent color plays of monumental size.  From early on he had little interest in the representation of reality.  At college he was encouraged to explore his own subjective impressions of reality through painting.

This is painting about painting in the tradition of Gerhard Richter ‘s grey paintings and the white paintings by Robert Ryman.  Mechler almost empties out the canvas of any objects in order to focus entirely on what he describes as a psychological confrontation with painting.  Much of what feeds his work is extracted from life around him, be it a social event, his teaching, visiting an exhibition or simply taking a walk.  His work is spontaneous and relies on the energy of his senses, emotions, intuition and thoughts as well as his perception of the world around him, all of which filters into his compositions.

Ottawa-based Studio Sixty Six presents In·habit (8 – 30/June)

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

From the interior of our homes to the expanses of the planet, the spaces humans inhabit shape much of our lives, and, in turn, have been massively affected by our presence. In·habit (June 8 – June 30) at Studio Sixty Six in Ottawa explores the broad range of this topic from the dichotomy between industrialization and nature, to the various items we discard into the world, and those we can’t seem to release from our personal collections.

.

The layered photographic images of Farihah Shah (whose work is shown here courtesy of the artist and Studio Sixty Six) juxtapose urban and natural landscapes. From the series Cityscape III, Shah combines scenes of varying locations, calling to mind the intervention and destruction of nature for our urban environments, while also recognizing the statuesque beauty of man made city structures. Shah’s work is subtle – the overlapping of images invites the viewer in to discover layer under layer.

.

Joyce Crago‘s work continues along the theme of the Flotsam series, wherein the artist shaped discarded refuse into elaborate and intricate still-life photographs. For In·habit Crago visited Washington, D.C. and collected discarded items from both the inauguration of President Trump and the subsequent Women’s March on Washington. While Crago’s works tell a narrative of the historical events they reference (and the current political climate in North America), they also reveal the intriguing stories that are left behind in our waste.

.
Marisa Gallemit tackles this theme with mixed-media sculptural work created from objects accumulated over decades of life. As the artist finds their life undergoing a massive shift, Gallemit transforms accrued and often unneeded objects (such as cowhide from family in the Philippines and old bike tube valves) into concise and measured works of art.
