Eric Fischl – Pinned Mylars opens June 2 at William Campbell

E r i c   F i s c h l
Pinned Mylars

ERIC FISCHL AT WILLIAM CAMPBELL CONTEMPORARY ART
Opening Reception
Saturday, June 2, 2018
6:00 to 8:00 pm
William Campbell Contemporary Art, in collaboration with Hexton Contemporary, opens a new exhibition by American artist Eric Fischl on June 2, 2018. The exhibition spans the last five years of Fischl’s work, with a particular focus on the artist’s exploration of new materials to reinterpret his iconic imagery.
Beginning in 2011, Eric Fischl began a collection of work that further explored his collage practice from the late 70’s and early 80’s. Fischl first began developing this new body of work in layers of clear acrylic resin, with figures painted and/or printed onto clear acetates and then embedded within poured layers of clear acrylic resin.Very few works were made utilizing this technique. This exhibition at William Campbell Contemporary Art has brought together some of the most important and rare works from this project.
More recently, Fischl began experimenting with figures painted and/or printed onto loose mylars that are then pinned over a watercolor or oil painted background. While both the resin worksand pinned mylar concepts emanate from the same desire to reimagine his early collage process, each accomplishes very different results.
The resin works were created around the time Fischl began exploring cast glass sculpture. The resin works became a way to create collaged images in modern materials that capture light in a similar way to glass, whereby light comes into the work and projects back out of the work.
In the pinned mylars, Fischl was still interested in exploring how light passes through translucent surfaces but wanted to break free from the rigid dimensions of the resin processto create works which extend beyond the image plane. This allowed the artist to let the images expand and overlap in a compositional style similar to that of his iconic assembled canvases from the late 80’s and early 90’s (an important example of such is featured in the Dallas Contemporary’s current Eric Fischl solo exhibition).
The William Campbell Contemporary Art exhibition marks both the first full-scale gallery presentation of these new mylar works and the first time the complete collection has been exhibited.
The exhibition also includes a recent large-format oil on chromecoat painting from the artist’s studio. Rarely exhibited, this work offers a singular and defining look into Fischl’s long-standing practice of figurative exploration. “The relationship between the body and the person is riveting to watch,” states Fischl. “You can tell through body language how comfortable or insecure a person is with themselves and others. Body language is like a window to the soul. That is what I try to capture in my work.”
Eric Fischl at William Campbell Contemporary Art will be up from June 2 through July 28, 2018. For more information please contact William Campbell Contemporary Art.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
 
Eric Fischl is an internationally acclaimed American painter and sculptor. His artwork is represented in many distinguished museums throughout the world and has been featured in over one thousand publications. His extraordinary achievements throughout his career have made him one of the most influential figurative painters of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
Fischl was born in 1948 in New York City and grew up in the suburbs of Long Island. He began his art education in Phoenix, Arizona where his parents had moved in 1967. He attended Phoenix College and earned his B.F.A. from the California Institute for the Arts in 1972. He then spent some time in Chicago, where he worked as a guard at the Museum of Contemporary Art. In 1974, he moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to teach painting at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Fischl had his first solo show, curated by Bruce W. Ferguson, at Dalhousie Art Gallery in Nova Scotia in 1975 before relocating to New York City in 1978.
Fischl’s suburban upbringing provided him with a backdrop of alcoholism and a country club culture obsessed with image over content. His early work thus became focused on the rift between what was experienced and what could not be said. His first New York City solo show was at Edward Thorp Gallery in 1979, during a time when suburbia was not considered a legitimate genre for art. He first received critical attention for depicting the dark, disturbing undercurrents of mainstream American life.
Fischl’s paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints have been the subject of numerous solo and major group exhibitions and his work is represented in many museums, as well as prestigious private and corporate collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Modem Art in New York City, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, St. Louis Art Museum, Louisiana Museum of Art in Denmark, MusÈe Beaubourg in Paris, The Paine Weber Collection, and many others. Fischl has collaborated with other artists and authors, including E.L. Doctorow, Allen Ginsberg, Jamaica Kincaid, Jerry Saltz and Frederic Tuten.
Eric Fischl is also the founder, President and lead curator for America: Now and Here. This multi-disciplinary exhibition of 150 of some of America’s most celebrated visual artists, musicians, poets, playwrights, and filmmakers is designed to spark a national conversation about American identity through the arts. The project launched on May 5th, 2011 in Kansas City before traveling to Detroit and Chicago.
Eric Fischl is a Fellow at both the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the American Academy of Arts and Science. He lives and works in Sag Harbor, NY with his wife, the painter April Gornik.

PANELISTS:

BANG DANG, Architect

Bang has called Dallas his home since he was five years old, and having a Chinese background, he has a unique, Eastern/Western take on architecture.  The natural inclination to be rational, subtle, and minimal is countered by the urge to be instinctive, brave, and free.  Bang’s focus is making architecture that is abstract in its homage to Texas regionalism and subtle in its attempt to be inventive.  Bang’s experience in the field is broad and varied, covering architecture of all types and scales.  Bang holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Architecture from the University of Texas at Arlington, where he was an Adjunct Professor for six years.  Bang taught a variety of design studios including a two semester design/build studio where students design and construct prototype micro houses. Bang is a founding partner, with Rizi Faruqui, of the award winning, modern practice FAR + DANG.  A rigorous and proactive research agenda and a passion for exploring ideas of space and lifestyle are the foundations of the firm’s design process.

Artist Statement – Lucy Tolkunova
I always loved drawing; from a simple line drawing to the most detailed photorealistic one. There is something in holding a pencil or charcoal and hearing the sound it makes as I move it on paper… something calming, relaxing… sound of an artwork being created. Each one of my artworks has a part me, it reflect me at the moment in time when I worked on that piece, it tells a story through stokes of a pencil on paper.

About the Artist
Lucy Tolkunova is a self-taught artist with a passion for drawing. Her artworks from the Origami drawing series won several awards in local art exhibits and have been included in Stokes of Genius. The Best of Drawing books.

Humanizing the Digital submissions due Dec. 15

The North Texas Digital Fabrication Group 2018 Symposium

Texas Woman’s University Dept. of Visual Arts

Logo for North Texas Digital Fabrication

Humanizing the Digital

The 3rd annual North Texas Digital Fabrication Symposium (NTDFS) highlights the creative potential for digital fabrication tools and techniques to reconnect us to our humanity. Contrary to society’s worst fear of the dystopian impact of technology, innovative and creative uses of digital fabrication open up possibilities for reconsidering the way humans learn, make and connect through the creative arts. The NTDFS is intended to be a forum for considering the hybrid, interdisciplinary and creative futures that lead us back to the complex imperfection of our humanity.

Symposium Poster

Call for Proposals

The NTDFS seeks interdisciplinary proposals that connect and expand an art and design perspective into other areas of research and practice. As an extension of our mission to highlight the relationship between technology and humanity, we emphasize a spectrum of digital makers representing diverse perspectives including gender, race and ethnic identity. Particularly in a time when the tech world is under serious scrutiny for a lack of commitment to diversity and access, we hope to represent perspectives that the general public less frequently associates with these new technologies.

This Saturday! 500x Openings include Valerie Powell and Tabatha Trolli, Project Spaces, reception 7-10pm

500x Gallery Exhibitions

November 11 – December 3, 2017

Reception – November 11, 7pm-10pm

 

On Water 
solo exhibition by Valerie Powell
Downstairs / Main Gallery

Valerie Powell’s solo exhibition, On Water, features new drawings and sculptures as well as a site specific wall installation, informed by the rising water of hurricane Harvey on the Houston area, where she lives. Inspired by both the devastation caused by Harvey as well as the resilience of the human condition witnessed by the kindness and generosity felt by many after the storm, this exhibition of new work explores the tension of being under/on water. Continuing to investigate the complexities of being human, Powell’s new work reflects upon memories of floating and the sensation of being carried by a force greater then yourself.  On Water maps both physical and psychological journeys navigating the space between disaster and hope.

Pass Trough Me 
solo exhibition by Tabatha Trolli
Upstairs / Main Gallery

Tabatha Trolli’s solo exhibition, Pass Through Me, invites the viewer to inhabit a tunnel-like space as one might if shrunken and placed inside of a whale…a tomb…an underwater cave.

The space itself is a passage, momentarily transfixed by its current place in time. Connections can be made between the physical body and the sculptural object. Objects are imbued with their own unique appeal and have no shame in their boldness. The sculptures are layered, worn and seem to have lived once before, an alternate existence with different meanings. The artist is inviting her viewer to a place, vulnerable yet unafraid, to stay true to oneself. Further, she aims to provoke them to consider their own relationship between the objects and themselves.

Plausible Structures?
Scotty Hensler
Downstairs / Project Space

“A pool of ambient information encompasses us; I unconsciously and consciously filter and sample from that expanse. There is a magnetic accumulation of notions and material that impress upon me about place and person.” This new work from Scotty Hensler is that amassing of materials, both physical and in thought, that spawn from the artist’s relationships with art, art history, people, structures. The exhibition will be all new paint and sculptural work with an installation art component. The materials are wood, oil and acrylic paint, foam, nylon, plastics, found objects.

seawiid
Nat Olmo
Upstairs / Project Space

seawiid is “an installation by Nat Olmo using remnants of sludgy trash water environments to explore accumulation as adornment and attempt to discover connections between artificiality and a traditional sense of ‘real’ or ‘natural’.”

October 10
Margaret Meehan was a Texas-based artist until her recent move to Richmond, Virginia, where she now lives, makes art, and teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University. Meehan, known for her research-heavy and figure-based multimedia work, has always been interested in the body – not necessarily how it physically works or even the figure as a genre, but how bodily difference has been perceived throughout time.
For Tuesday Evenings, Meehan presents “Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde,” a talk on how her work addresses monstrosity as a kind of otherness that goes beyond dualities and instead exists in shades of gray, a slippage between the categories that society defines us by and an acknowledgement of the monster that lives within us. In this clear-eyed and nuanced consideration of the intersections of myths, monsters, and miracles, Meehan examines how we decide whom we protect and whom we should be protected from by looking at notions of gender, vintage horror, and our own blood-stained American history.

Your Private Collection Presents Impressionist, Roberta Mallard August 26

Your Private Collection Art Gallery Presents

Roberta Mallard, Impressionist

Last Saturday Gallery Night

Saturday, August 26, 5-8 pm

Roberta Mallard will be the featured artist at Your Private Collection Art Gallery as part of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night. Mallard’s works of landscapes, portraits and animals painted in oil and acrylic have often been selected for national, juried art shows.

I paint light and the color it creates,” said Mallard. “I am greatly influenced by the Impressionists.  The greatest joy of painting is seeing the look on the faces of clients when they see their portrait or have just purchased a painting and hearing the words, “I love it.””

Mallard’s work can be found in Southwest Art in the current August issue, “Women in Art” and in the upcoming September issue “National Emerging Artists.”

Galleries of Granbury

All the seven Galleries of Granbury venues are open until 8 pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music. A narrated “gallery” tram will be running between the gazebo in the courthouse parking lot and the surrounding galleries. You don’t want to miss this wonderful evening of art.

Come Celebrate Roberta Mallard’s Art at Your Private Collection Art Gallery—Guitar music by Granbury’s Mayor, Nin Hulett and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and wine.

The last two decades have seen a monumental shift in historic preservation both in Dallas and across the country. This is reflective of a broader renewed interest in the built environment – old and new – specifically how buildings, landscapes and places impact our lives. Twenty years ago, there was very little research on the physical and mental impact of buildings and landscapes. Today there are many more studies available on the subject, as well as a greater general interest in how our surroundings affect our bodies and minds. 
 
It has been said that historic preservation efforts are like a town’s autobiography. The decision to keep or demolish something for the future is based on the values of a particular time and place and attitude. Dallas’s citizens are increasingly interested in the decision-making process that determines what their surroundings look like and how it will affect them. The Demolition Delay ordinance as one example of the citizenry’s growing focus on the preservation decisions being made in their city. The quality and quantity of the city preservation staff has grown to a complete office, and many team members hold degrees in historic preservation related fields. Many internal changes such as increased training, education, and public outreach are happening as a result of the Downtown Preservation Solutions Committee.
 
While there is clearly an increased interest in the historic built environment from both the public and local government, the decisions that impact citizens are still largely unguided.  With no city planning department, there is a lack of vision and coordination in how the city develops and re-develops. We are working off a Preservation Plan from 1987 and our surveys are decades old. These tools need to be updated to guide future development and preservation efforts.

Sharon Serrago: Going from Realism to Abstraction; IAA Meeting May 23

Purple Valley

Guest artist at the Tuesday, May 23rd meeting of the Irving Art Association will be Sharon Serrago. Her presentation will be on going from Realism to Abstraction, a subject many artists find fascinating. In the demo she will begin with a realistic drawing of the subject and an abstract drawing, then show step by step how to move a realistic picture into an abstraction of that subject.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and the Meeting starts at 7:00 pm at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts in Irving.  Directions. Guests are welcome.

About the Artist: 

Sharon Serrago is a local area artist, teaching weekly watercolor and acrylic classes at her studio in Richardson, TX, a suburb of Dallas). As her teaching strength lies in design and color theory, her classes always focus on strong fundamentals. Sharon’s ability to quickly spot problem areas in paintings and her adeptness at offering solutions has caught the eye of many art clubs and organizations who have subsequently invited her to present demonstrations, offer critiques of members’ works, and judge competitions.

An entrepreneur with her hand in several businesses, Sharon’s first love is her art. While she frequently paints realistically, she is most at home when painting abstracts. Her styles are as diverse as her talents, all of which goes into making her one of Dallas’ interesting artists.

Dream Juice
Lindsey Larsen
 
Dream Juice is a contemplation of things in nature, like humans and all the other physical things… but also things that aren’t physical, like an experience, maybe? I mean experience with a capital E.
Abyss
Ashley Whitt
 
Abyss explores the dichotomy between order and chaos within the universe and within the self. Photographic collages and sculptural artist books are fabricated to illustrate the physical manifestations of anxiety and depression through the deconstruction of the photographic image.
Collages are made using a combination of alternative processes; lumen prints, chemigrams, and solvent transfers. To create the images, photographic prints are cut apart and sewn back together. Geometric and organic shapes mimic the patterns and phenomenons found within the universe. Abyss considers the correlation between the inner self and outer space as well as our desires to control and make sense of life and death.
