Markel Fine Arts Downstairs: Deborah Dancy & Deborah Zlotsky – Paintings Upstairs: Paintings by Victor Pesce curated by Miles Manning

Markel Fine Arts is please to share the third exhibition in a series of four by invited curators who will take over the upstairs space at the Bridgehampton gallery over the summer. Miles Manning has curated the exhibition Paintings by Victor Pesce. Pesce – 1938-2010 – was known for still life paintings that feature novel color and spatial relationships in tightly organized compositions, always painted with a tender intensity often associated with the Metaphysical paintings of Morandi. The exhibition is ongoing through August 9, 2021.

In the downstairs space, Deborah Zlotsky and Deborah Dancy, long-time friends, each show five
abstract oil paintings that create ambiguous spaces but in radically different ways. Zlotsky’s palette is
bold and surprising, Dancy’s earthy and subtle. Dancy’s compositions consist of the emotionally
charged collision of marks and shapes, while Zlotsky’s are taut and slightly surreal. But both artists
incorporate accident and constant reinvention, and chance becomes a method of creating new
relationships through responses to unexpected decisions.
