Tuesday’s Gallery Picks

gallerypicks_patternpulp161

Our artists are focusing on adventure and leisure time in this week’s gallery picks.

*            *            *

1. Focusing on informal moments shared by friends and lovers,Nicole Eisenman’s paintings concentrate on interior spaces and those casual situations that occur only behind closed doors, be that of the studio, a New York apartment or a train compartment at Anton Kern Gallery
2. Marcel Dzama presents new film works, sculpture, and large format drawings alongside a walk-in installation at Sies + Höke
3. As a member of a generation of artists noted for their “return” to figurative painting, Jocelyn Hobbie has honed a formal inventiveness in which neoclassical figures with pensive expressions are depicted amid bold and striking patterns. Her heightened naturalism and enhanced degree of saturated color reveal an uneasy relationship to realism and firmly root these unusually psychological paintings in the age of post abstraction at Fredericks & Freiser
4. As life in America continues to distance itself from the countryside, vacations and travel are a time to reintroduce the self to nature. As summer approaches in America, this idolized time of year brings thoughts of travel, escape, and road trips. With individual freeways that stretch over 3,000 miles, taking the car across country reveals America’s boundless diverse landscapes, as travelers immerse themselves in America’s ever changing personality at Joshua Liner Gallery
5. In the party game Who’s Coming to Dinner? participants are asked to choose any number of dinner guests, famous or not, from any period in time, and imagine what the party would be like. Annelie McKenzie’s exhibition is her personal variation of that game, except that she has imagined a museum exhibition, choosing artists—famous or not, from any period in time–and they become her “Old Masters” at CB1 Gallery
6. When we think of Science Fiction and Fantasy Art, it is often the names like Frazetta and Hildebrandt that come first to mind. However, all along through the art history of the genre you have women such as Kinuko Craft, Mary Blair, Julie Bell, and many more who have been creating their own visual worlds and illustrating the worlds of authors, filmmakers, and game designers. For the first time, the work of women in this genre will be exhibited together in Point of Vision: Celebrating Women Artists in Fantasy and Science Fiction at Society of Illustrators

gallerypicks_patternpulp158

This week’s artists examine the narrative and cycle of change.

*            *            *

1. In Minoan Girls, Elaine Reichek focuses on the ways in which the Greek myths are continually retold and reenacted over the centuries, in the same way that sewing doubles a thread back upon itself repeatedly at Shoshana Wayne Gallery
2. Peter Linde Busk’s work is sincerely concerned with detritus: the literal, cultural and societal. He channels ancient Spolia architecture, where unneeded buildings or monuments were demolished and repurposed for the construction of new patchwork structures at Derek Eller Gallery
3. Inside Out, Home and Place will bring together a series of van Dalen’s works, providing a meditation on his longstanding interest in the clash between nature and technology, capitalism and humanity, and the way in which one’s sense of home and place in the world can be an ever-shifting construction due to external and often uncontrollable circumstances at Sargent’s Daughter’s
4. Sara Jimenez excavates personal and historical narratives as part of her artistic process. This search has led her to the image of casting wide nets into the deepest parts of the ocean, which symbolically connect here (NY) and there (the Philippines), two spaces that connote  “home” for the artist. In the attempt to capture and contain lost information, she weaves fabric nets which are suspended from the ceiling of the gallery and fill the space at Five Myles
5. Ayline Olukman, Stephane Joannes, and Amanda Scuglia come together to present present NATURE/MADE at Massey Lyuben Gallery
6. Michel Huelin imagines a universe of mutations giving rise to both fascination and discomfort, manifestations of a techno-kind expansion according to a principle of proliferation, as nature itself without control or limit except that of the perception of detail, this notion itself becoming imperceptible and blurred at galerie zürcher

This week’s artists contemplate nature and cycles of change.

*            *            *

1. An exhibition deriving inspiration from the seasons themed paintings in the Frick Collection by François Boucher; artists are invited to create four paintings of the same size to commemorate each one of the seasons at Haven Art Gallery
2. Multiplicity examines our individual and cultural environments through the use of archetypal and reflective imagery. The artists create multiples as a way to reflect on our psychological, natural and societal predicaments.  The use of archetypal imagery varies widely in this show from cultural constructs to the mythological, and the symbolic, encompassing individual as well as collective psychological landscapes at Dacia Gallery
3. Highlights features portraits of individuals from the Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s past, who, through various means, were able to make it out of the notorious Robert Taylor Homes public housing project. These compositions give shape to Quinn’s memories, the figures from his past finding their way from the subconscious to the paper. In their abstracted bodies and faces, Quinn’s personal narrative transforms into a wider exploration on the resiliency of human nature at M + B Art
4. Nina Yuen’s two new films and a series of photographs poetically and intimately explore universal themes of time, death, and beauty at Jane Lombard Gallery
5. Amandalynn intends to capture the beauty of nature’s cyclical change within this newest series of work at Distinction Art
6. For Mountain Full, Andrew Hem was inspired by the action of leaping, depicting many of his stylized subjects hovering or plummeting over expressionistic landscapes. Like snapshots taken from a dream, his surreal figures and environments retain familiar elements but are otherworldly, existing one step outside of everyday life at Jonathan LeVine Gallery

This week’s gallery picks feature bursting color, pattern and unique perspectives.

*            *            *

1. A selection of paintings, collages, drawings and prints by Dado from the 1970’s. His phantasmagorical dramaturgy draws its inspiration from a sort of redemption, through painting or drawing, of adolescent memories of tragedies and human cruelties that occurred in his native Montenegro at Jeanne Bucher Jaeger
2. A group show featuring six contemporary photographers from Africa and its diaspora. The exhibition explores multiple themes that challenge accepted notions of belonging and identity; the everyday and the fantastical; the past and the future; the public and the private at Red Hook Labs
3. Anne-Sophie Cochevelou offers a reflection on the cultural appropriation within an “unplanned obsolescence” – through a maximalism that is dear to her, thus celebrating the richness and variety of different cultures through reclaimed material. The artist questions the female body within the post-modern society and particularly the paradoxes of feminism through a costume-based performance at Isabelle Gounod Gallery
4. Presented on yellow walls, Natalie Frank’s new paintings in paper and on wood portray women who have created worlds of their own liking–full of voyeurism, performance, pets and the hot colors and exuberance of horror films at ACME
5. Mike Davis renders complex paintings embedded with symbols of mortality, folly, and hubris in the style of the Netherlandish Flemish Primitives such as Bosch, Bruegel and van Eyck. His oil paintings create an alternate world where anything is possible, combining arcane personal symbols with social commentary. His work depicts a world of myth and colliding timeframes, a land “on the other side of the bridge,” but one that resonates with our own—not as memory but as a dream at Copro Gallery
6. Collin van der Sluijs’ work is marked by the various artistic techniques he blends together to render his unusual subjects. He has created his own intricate, colorful, odd world with the subjects of his pieces. He takes inspiration for these subjects from the personal pleasures and the struggles of daily life. This world when expressed through the various techniques Collin has mastered, creates beautiful, multi-dimensional pieces of art work, that draw the eye in and keep it there at Vertical Gallery
