EXHIBITION DATES

June 24th – August 26th, 2017

OPENING RECEPTION  Saturday, June 24th from 5 – 8pm

1845 LEVEE STREET, SUITE 110 | DALLAS, TX 75207

Cris Worley Fine Arts is pleased to introduce four new artists in this Summer’s upcoming exhibition, Introductions. Marc Dennis, Adrian Esparza, Sherry Owens, and Robert Sagerman display radical and unique talents in sculpture and painting. A reception will be held Sat., June 24, from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibit continues through August 26.

Marc Dennis (Brooklyn): Hyper-realist artist Marc Dennis brings levity, humor and virtuosity to his sumptuous oil paintings. The artist cites Southern European figurative masters such as Caravaggio, Velasquez, and Manet, and Northern European still-life masters, such as Bosschaert, Davidsz de Heem, and Rachel Ruysch as influences. Dennis’ paintings often depict subjects from the art historical canon infused with contemporary themes to form a critical perspective. The juxtaposition of pop-cultural iconography and artistic masterpieces subverts our sanctified views of art history’s most noble subjects.

Dennis received his BFA from The Tyler School of Art of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and his MFA from The University of Texas at Austin. Over a dozen high profile private and public collections across the U.S. possess works by Marc Dennis. These include the collections of Larry Gagosian, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Bill and Maria Bell, and Glenn and Amanda Fuhrman. Public collections include The Rockwell Museum of Western Art, The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, and the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University.

Adrian Esparza (El Paso): Adrian Esparza explores material culture by “re-instilling lost value in found objects.” Esparza has inspired international attention through his deconstruction of the Mexican sarape. The artist reconstructs geometric forms using colorful thread from the sarape. Drawing inspiration from modern architecture, physical landscapes, and mid-century minimalist artists, Esparza depicts dramatic one and two-point perspectives to form striking dimensionality and volume.

Adrian Esparza received his BFA from the University of Texas at El Paso and his MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1998. Artist residencies include ArtPace in San Antonio and the Border Art Residency in La Union. Esparza’s creative reinvention draws international appreciation from Mexico City to Berlin as well as in the U.S. Most recently, the Dallas Museum of Art featured Esparza’s pieces through the Center for Creative Connections Visiting Artists Project. Esparza’s works reside in the permanent collections of multiple museums including the Dallas Museum of Art, the El Paso Museum of Art, and the Perez Miami Art Museum.

Sherry Owens (Dallas): Sherry Owens is a prominent sculptor in the continuum of contemporary artists in Texas. Owens is known for her exquisite sculptures made from repurposed crepe myrtle branches. She constructs dense and often chaotic forms through a labor-intensive process of carving and composing. Entwined branches transform light to expand and shift perspective. This interlacing technique mimics the delicate intricacy found in nature.

Sherry Owens received her BFA from Southern Methodist University. Owens won the Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award in 1999, the Artist/Craftsman Award from the AIA Dallas in 2014, and was chosen as the West Texas Triangle Artist in 2010 with a comprehensive survey at five West Texas museums. She co-founded the Emergency Artists’ Support League and served as president of the Texas Sculpture Association. Owens recently completed a large public art project for the Love Field Modernization Program at Love Field Airport in Dallas. Her work has been shown throughout Texas and the southwest and internationally in Peru, Germany, Greece, Turkey, and India.

Robert Sagerman (Jersey City): Informed by his academic studies in art history and Kabbalist Mysticism, Robert Sagerman creates pieces that awe and impress. The artist mills his own oil paint to build layer upon layer on canvas with a palette knife. The title of each piece then corresponds to the number of strokes made by the artist. Repetition as a form of meditation gives way to a mystical experience.

The artist received his BFA (1990) and MFA (1998) from Pratt Institute. A published scholar, he also holds an MS in Art History from Pratt Institute as well as an MA in Religious Studies and a PhD in Hebrew and Judaic Studies from New York University. During this time, he recieved two fellowships, one grant, and a certificate of excellence from NYU and the Pratt Institute. Sagerman’s work has been reviewed by Art in America, NY Arts Magazine, Kunstforum International, Art News and the Atlanta Journal Constitution among many others. He is in the public collections of the Portland Art Museum, The Karl Ernst Osthaus-Museum, and the Museum Für Konkrete Kunst.

“Abstract Perspective: The Art of Kathy Metcalf” June 24

Kathy Metcalf2

Frisco Fine Art welcomes multimedia artist Kathy Metcalf in the exhibit “Abstract Perspective”, on display from June 24 until July 8.  A reception to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, June 24, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

A native of Dallas, Metcalf says that at the turn of the 21st century, she found herself in fervent need of self-expression. Completely self-taught, she views painting as a “catharsis for the soul”, giving her a sense of creativity, peace and joy. Her work is bold in color and texture and reflects the mood of the moment.

Caroline Mousseau: Surrounding Isolations opens June 16 at CYDONIA

FORT WORTH – CYDONIA is pleased to announce the return of Caroline Mousseau in her second solo exhibition Surrounding Isolations. The exhibition opens onFriday, June 16, 2017 and runs until Saturday, July 29, 2017. A reception will take place on June 16, from 6 to 8 in the evening at 2955 Crockett Street, Fort Worth, 76107.

CYDONIA concludes its 2016-17 exhibition year with Caroline Mousseau, the last in our all-female year of programing. The artist’s style is immediately recognizable: repetitive, thick, impasto-like brushstrokes of manipulated oil paints are painstakingly applied in repetitive strokes. The merit of her paintings is not determined by the optical experience for the viewer alone, but Mousseau also incorporates a dialogue about textures and possibilities of paint itself. Powdered pigments mixed with linseed oil are manipulated to stand on her will. Squeezed out of tube, paint is amorphous, but the artist molds, sculpts, and controls the medium to her exacting vision. Tiny, dried ridges of stacked paint lean towards the viewer in a masterful display of uniformity.

The artist describes her latest series: “These works do not strive to capture the landscape, as painting often has attempted to throughout history, but rather to exist within it.” Mousseau’s inspiration comes from the ambiguity that can be found when one cannot fully comprehend her surroundings. For her, this is the point at which representation and abstraction intersect, and the viewer can begin to “deconstruct the process of observation.” Viewing landscape, like abstraction, is an exercise in perception, noting that repetition is a recurring feature within nature.

Painting, in and of itself, is not only a medium, it is the monolithic genre within art. By choosing to work in painting, Mousseau implicitly negotiates the long history between painting, landscape, and abstraction. Applying derivative elements of these sub genres, she is able to create hybrid works. Her works are as stylistically lyrical in composition as they are Greenberg-ian in application. The Vancouverite carefully composes a large mass of undulating, ribbon-like trails on an exposed underpainting. The plane of the canvas where a viewer enters and exits is clearly demarcated. Paint doesn’t strive to be something other than itself. Weaving in and out of its own properties, each painting represents two types of the medium’s viscosity. The underpainting is flat, the material gliding on the canvas with ease; the dominant abstraction represents the second less-fluid state of paint’s materiality. Her attention to the materiality of paint demonstrates self-evident process and resulting interconnectedness to the optical experience. Her use of color is autonomous from propelling these gestures towards any true sense of representation, with palates stemming from the environs of her hometown, Winnipeg, as well as Vancouver. Titles add a playful and evocative overtone that summons imagination.

This exhibition is supported by the Fort Worth Arts Council.

Caroline Mousseau graduated as the valedictorian of Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2012. She studied at l’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 2010. Mousseau has exhibited throughout Canada, and in 2014, she was curated in the exhibition 100 Painters of Tomorrow, with an eponymous book launch, in London and New York. In March 2015, CYDONIA mounted Mousseau’s first solo exhibition. The artist was met with strong Canadian support for her solo presentation at Art Toronto 2016. In February 2017, she was curated in a two-person presentation at Zona Maco in Mexico City entitled Another Chance to Do Right: Emerging Aesthetics Featuring Repetition, Pattern, and Rhythm. In April 2017, Mousseau was curated in her first museum appearance, abNext: Contemporary Abstraction by Emerging Canadian Artists, at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario.

“Flow”: Fluid Abstracts by Mary Galbraith opens June 17 at Frisco Fine Art

Mary Galbraith

Frisco Fine Art welcomes local abstract artist Mary Galbraith in the exhibit “Flow”, from June 17 to July 1. A reception to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

The exhibit will showcase her most recent work: stunning, fluid acrylic paintings that evoke both calm and movement. Galbraith has a solid foundation in nearly every medium. As early as high school, she was participating in painting workshops throughout Texas and became an accomplished photorealistic artist. Now an advocate for experimentation, she broke from the tight constraints of photorealism to explore the looseness and abandon of fluid acrylics.  “Now that I’ve finally stepped out of my self-imposed box, I’ve never felt more free.”

untitled_princezaar

Prince Zaar chose not to stay in the Royalty lineup in Camaroon, but to continue his work in sacred geometry and criminal justice in the US.  He uses ink to execute large scrolls he refers to as trianglerism which are intense, beautiful, and psychedelic.

Rich Cali works with ink on vintage paper recording images from his soul and subconscience with direct subjects transformed to read as elegant autobiographic imagery.

Dan Phillips works with gouache on paper which express his talent as a furniture maker. Simplistic graceful femininity subjects float on his paper.

Anthony Dominguez worked on the streets of NY with dark fabrics and simple uncommon materials such as white-out.  He worked on pieces he could roll and transport for a mobile work space.  His work is allegories from his thoughts about the timeless and repeated state of man and the world.

Robert Ryan is a tattoo artist from New Jersey who when not tattooing is working to maintain clarity and an enlightened state of the mind with his teacher in India.  His work in ink describes this journey.

All five artists are working or have worked within what we would call “the HINTERLAND” – an area lying beyond what is visible or known.

Jorge Alegria: Supernova at Kirk Hopper

supernovaalegrialeft: Jorge Alegría. Nemotids, 2017. 11 x 14 inches. Graphite on paper.

SUPERNOVA | JORGE ALEGRÍA

May 13 – June 24, 2017

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to welcome our first solo exhibition for artist Jorge Alegría, entitled SUPERNOVA.  This exhibit will feature Alegría’s most recent drawings and opens Saturday, May 13th, with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at 3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment. Phone: 214-760-9230, Email: giovanni@kirkhopperfineart.com, Website: www.kirkhopperfineart.com

Supernova is a further exploration into the visual imagination of Jorge Alegría’s series, Heaven: The War of the Angels. Heaven is a series of works based on a personal fictional narrative of the same name, originating from the Bible, spanning the cosmos and centuries into the future. The new drawings represent scenes of environments, creatures, and civilizations found in events from that narrative.

Alegría’s seductively detailed drawings tap into his stream of consciousness and pull from his boyhood interests of dinosaurs, bible stories, bird watching, and ant farms to create a dark and dystopian world. The War of the Angels begins during the story of Noah, with people and animals being gathered and relocated throughout the cosmos, while a distant angel seeks revenge by inflicting catastrophe. Alegría’s drawings reveal the fragility of our own reality and how disconnected we have become from grace and redemption. His drawings reflect a life of complex moods for complex times.

 

Biography

Jorge Alegría is a native of Corpus Christi, Texas. He studied at Del Mar College and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Alegría has been exhibiting his work regionally for nearly two decades. Recent group exhibitions include the contemporary drawing biennial Texas Draws III at Southwest School of Art in 2014 and Slipstream, curated by Susie Kalil at Kirk Hopper Fine Art in 2016. In 2004, he and a friend started the independent art space Residence, hosting critiques, curating exhibits, and posting art reviews. The space was revived in 2013, renamed The Living Room, which featured one-night shows of selected artists. Alegría is represented in several collections, including the Art Museum of South Texas.

Katherine Bernhardt at the Modern

kbernhardt-2-web

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents
FOCUS: Katherine Bernhardt      
April 8-July 9, 2017
For a review of the show, see Nancy Zastudil’s article at Arts + Culture Texas: Funny (But Not Too Funny): Katherine Bernhardt at The Modern http://artsandculturetx.com/funny-but-not-too-funny-katherine-bernhardt-at-the-modern/

The FOCUS series is organized by the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for the Director’s Council, a group that supports acquisitions at the Museum. The series features three solo exhibitions annually, organized by Assistant Curator Alison Hearst. FOCUS exhibitions are open to the public and are included in general museum admission: $10 for adults; $4 for seniors (60+) and students with identification; free for children 12 and under; free for Modern members.

 
In Katherine Bernhardt’s recent “pattern” paintings, various objects from everyday life repeat within a single composition. The combinations are often humorous, such as in the frankly titled Windex cigarettes basketball, 2016, where the three items repeat and float flatly atop a solid ground of cobalt blue. Emojis, Aquafresh toothpaste, cigarettes, Duracell batteries, and Sharpies are among the subjects Bernhardt paints using simplified, gestural forms. Drawn to these objects for their visual qualities more than for their thematic connections to one another, Bernhardt’s compositions, or “patterns,” are primarily driven by her interest in color and form.
Bernhardt combines opposing styles and methods within any given canvas. For example, her backgrounds are abstract, thin pools of acrylic paint, while her figurative foregrounds are executed with spray paint, forming sketchy, drippy silhouettes. By combining lush washes of color with spray-painted illustrations, her works have diverse passages that simultaneously resemble color field painting and graffiti.
West African, Moroccan, and Caribbean textiles are strong influences, as Bernhardt states: “My interest is in Dutch wax printing on African fabrics, so that’s what I’ve been influenced by. They have all these funny combinations of things that wouldn’t necessarily go together — sunglasses and birds, or whatever it might be.” Her paintings are also inspired by travel; in the large-scale Untitled, 2017, included in the exhibition, brightly hued pink and black toucans, bunches of yellow bananas, and neon pink papayas suggest a tropical scene and are subjects the artist introduced after visiting Puerto Rico. The birds and fruits are set against a swirling neon green, orange, and brown field and are surrounded by Doritos and cigarettes, another example of Bernhardt’s intermingling of incongruent items in a manner similar to the textiles that inspire her.
Bernhardt’s paintings also echo the hand-painted signs at bodegas and markets across the globe, which advertise everything from fresh produce to laundry detergent. Her works reflect on the images and goods we are surrounded by on a daily basis. The artist’s FOCUS exhibition at the Modern will feature eleven new paintings and a series of works on paper, each relating to her exploration of pattern and shape, which is rooted in ordinary subject matter but invigorated by Bernhardt’s cartoonish style and bold use of color. This is her first solo exhibition in Texas and her second museum exhibition to date.
Katherine Bernhardt was born in Saint Louis and currently lives in New York. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited widely across the globe, including recent solo exhibitions at the Contemporary Art Museum, Saint Louis; Carl Freedman Gallery, London; Venus over Manhattan, New York; CANADA, New York; Roberto Paradise, San Juan, Puerto Rico; and Gallery Loyal, Stockholm. Bernhardt has participated in many group shows at such venues as the Atlanta Contemporary; Kunstforeningen GL Strand, Copenhagen; Saatchi Gallery, London; Foundation Salomon, Annecy, France; Macro Future, Rome; and the Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp.

TVAA’s 2017 Abstract Redacted Reception May 7

May-TVAAA-Gallery-Poster1-471x600

May 1 – 31, 2017
Reception Sunday, May 7, 2-4 pm

The website for the TATE informs us that abstract ” means to separate or withdraw something from something else. Abstract art is art which is not representational, it could be based on a subject or may have no source at all in the external world.”

When sensitive information is removed or obscured from a document before it is published, it is said to have been redacted. In writing, this is a form of editing.

In this exhibit, we hope to show your abstract work with some redaction. You are the creator and must decide how that occurs. Will you use text which you conceal? Will you have an area in your piece that has had some content removed? Will a sculpture obviously show us a missing part? Perhaps the way you portray this idea will be more subjective. Perhaps it will be very literal. Subtle or not, you decide! All media welcome.

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.

EXHIBITION DATES

OPENING RECEPTION 

Saturday, May 13th

from 5 – 8pm

Kelli Vance
We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe
2017, oil on canvas, 60 x 36 inches

Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Sappers and Miners, our second solo exhibition with Kelli Vance, opening with an artist’s reception on Saturday, May 13th from 5 – 8 pm.
Sappers and Miners will include a series of large-scale paintings produced in oil on canvas. The exhibition will be on view through June 17, 2017.
Kelli Vance is known for her photorealistic paintings, which explore psychologically thrilling themes from voyeurism to assumed identity. Her work is primarily driven by complex narratives surrounding socially constructed notions of femininity that romanticize alternative forms of beauty.
Working from staged photographs, Vance enhances tension in the subjects of her chosen models through her painterly play with light and textures including hair, rope, cake icing, and wet skin. She muffles provocative shouts existing within her compositions by depicting only portions of their narratives, keeping actions hinted by the titles relegated outside the frame.
In the recent work of Sappers and Miners, Vance suspends her depictions of female figures in tantalizing situations, in favor of subdued rituals. An arsenal of occult magic follows her figures in We Provide Our Best Offering to the Universe (2016) and Sun Eaters (2016) as they attempt to locate their locus of control in preparation for psychological battle. This sublime search for power is echoed by a palette of black and white, erasing any evidence of opulence from Vance’s earlier cinematic scenes. These new works summon viewers to seek serenity when reality becomes chaotic.
Kelli Vance was born in Garland, Texas receiving her BFA from the University of North Texas in 2005 and her MFA from the University of Houston in 2008. She was included in the 2009 Texas Biennale, in 2014 she was a finalist for the Hunting Art Prize, and in 2017 she received a Houston Arts Alliance Individual Artist Grant. Vance’s work has been shown widely across Texas as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Mexico.

Cris Worley Fine Arts is located at: 1845 Levee Street # 110, Dallas, TX 75207
Gallery Hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 5pm and by appointment.

Many Hats/One Head – The Accidental Curator

Robert Storr is a painter who supported himself by sheetrocking, carpentry, and house painting, along with occasional art writing, when in 1990, with only an MFA in studio art, Storr was picked out of the chorus line by the newly appointed Kirk Varnedoe, Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, to be a curator in that same department. What followed was an eventful twelve-year run at MoMA, with his tenure ending as Senior Curator. Then there was a stint as the first Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, as well as the overall directorship of the 2007 Venice Biennale, making Storr the first and, thus far, only US-born curator chosen for this role in the 112-year-old exhibition. All of this was followed by the deanship of the Yale University School of Art.
Still a professor of painting at Yale, for this Tuesday Evenings presentation Storr talks about learning on the job as a way of life during a period of extraordinarily complex, rapid, and far-flung changes in the “art world” — now a polycentric, culturally diverse, and ever-morphing economic and politic alternate reality — as well as the abiding values that draw people to art and into an “art community” primarily inhabited by makers of various kinds.
Robert Storr lives and works in New York. In addition to his posts at The Museum of Modern Art, New York University, Yale University School of Art, and his role as director of the 52nd Venice Biennale, Storr has curated and published catalogues for numerous exhibitions, including monographic shows on Elizabeth Murray, Gerhard Richter, Tony Smith, and Robert Ryman. In April 2016, Storr was awarded the insignia of Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ambassador to the US. As a renowned author and critic, he has been a contributing editor at
Art in America since 1981 and regularly contributes to exhibition catalogues and art publications such as ArtForum, Frieze, Parkett, Corriere della Sera (Milan), and Art Press.His most recent publication, Intimate Geometries: The Work and Life of Louise Bourgeois, was released on February 15, 2017.

Ambreen Butt, Pia Camil and Keer Tanchak Exhibits at the Dallas Contemporary

DallasContemporaryButtCamilTanchak

8 APRIL – 20 AUGUST 2017

AMBREEN BUTT

What is left me

Ambreen Butt’s What is left of me addresses current political oppression and violence globally through large-scale resin installations and collage-based works. The creation of each piece is labor intensive and built upon meditative repetitive forms. Butt studied traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting at the National College of Art in Lahore and has built a unique visual language based upon that training.

PIA CAMIL

Bara, Bara, Bara

Through a wide variety of media ranging from installation to performance and ceramics, Pia Camil explores themes of art history, consumerism and the Mexican urban landscape. Investigating urban ruin through interpretations of abandoned billboards, dollar stores, and iconic works of art, Camil addresses the aesthetic language of modernism and its relationship to retail and advertising.

KEER TANCHAK

Soft Orbit

Keer Tanchak’s site-specific exhibition embodies the idea of time travel through art history and focuses on the last two years of the artist’s studio practice. Tanchak’s approach to painting demonstrates how the medium is always operating in a web of tradition and cultural references. The exhibition serves as a metaphorical X-ray machine that exposes the building block of the language of painting: brushwork, color, and light.

Curated by Kalee Appleton
Tammy Mercure’s project, Blue Library Vol 2: Conversations, consists of collaborative, visual exchanges between coupled photographers in the form of photobooks.  Each book, a result of a photographer’s responses to the imagery of another photographer, is a compilation of visual narrative that creates connections between work and gives a new life to the original photographs.
Participating photographers:

Courtney Asztalos & Nydia Blas, Jessica Dean Camp & Cole Don Kelley, Angela Deane & Alisson Bittiker, Lee Deigaard & Elizabeth Stone, Hobbes Ginsberg & Andi Icaza, Michelle Groskopf & Alexander Coggin, Janna Ireland & Morgan Rachel Levy, Natalie Krick & Lissa Rivera, Ian Lewandowski & Caiti Borruso, Juan Madrid & Maggie Stockman, Ross Mantle & Chris Maggio, Noelle McCleaf & Michael McCraw, Zora Murff & Rana Young, Amy Lynn Powell & Maddie McGarvey, Tamara Reynolds & Matthew Genitempo, David Soffa & Liz Calvi, Sasha Tivetsky & Melissa Spitz, and Tara Wray & Carrie Elizabeth Thompson.

object/non-object
Kelsey Heimerman and Sammy Rat Rios
Curated by Seth Lorenz
 
Two women, lots of color and two ways of seeing the world.
Kelsey Heimerman is an objective painter that mainly paints “figures (that) are her metaphorical haystacks and they reflect our contemporary world. Using distortion, engorged layers of firm, deliberate and bleeding paint become objectified as they describe flesh, spaces, animals and a codex of modern iconography.As a seeker of knowledge and a person people are drawn to, Heimerman strives to become a part of the American female narrative. Influenced by Frida Kahlo, Keith Haring, Henry Darger, Hemonous Boch, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Rosson Crow she continues diligently Project people projecting visions of a dreamlike futuristic world where all people are accepted.”
Sammy Rat Rios is a multifaceted Dallas artist, she is a musician, actress, and painter to name a few. Although her main focus is her music, her paintings are wonderful non-objective examples of her personal aesthetic. Everything she does, whether it be painting, singing, acting, or walking down the street, she does with a grace and style quite unique to herself. She is drawn to color, design, and clean simple aesthetics and she expresses these magnetisms boldly in her paintings.

Amélie Ducommun is a French-Swiss artist who lives and works in Barcelona. She was born in 1983 and graduated from Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris (ENSAD) and the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. Ducommun’s striking paintings attempt to harness both the beauty and energy of natural landscapes. A seasoned traveler, the artist draws her creative inspiration from discovering new panoramas and exploring unfamiliar geographies. Much of her work focuses on the temporality and subjectivity of memory, foregrounding questions of perception and emotion,as well as the interrelation between natural elements. For Ducommun, truth can be found in first impressions, the fleeting moment when unfamiliarity compels a focus on emotional candor and unbiased observation.

Ducommun has participated in more than 60 exhibitions internationally, including Dak’art, and the Beijing Contemporary Art Biennale, and was silver medalist at the 9th painting games of the Francophonie in Nice.  We are honored to represent Amelie Ducommun at WALL Gallery and invite you to this solo exhibition on view through May 12, 2017.

SHIFTING FANCY OF THE CROWD // WORKS BY HOWARD SHERMAN
ARTIST RECEPTION 01 APRIL 2017 | 6-9 PM

Howard Sherman received his Masters of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas in 2006. During his tenure at UNT, Sherman was fortunate enough to work with esteemed professor Vernon Fisher before Fisher’s retirement. It was during this time that the artist discovered and defined a visual language that has continued to evolve.

Sherman has been leading a new generation of bombastic contemporary painters in the Texas art world. His typically human-scale canvases carry traces of his background in cartooning, offsetting the loud, raw power of his aggressive paint strokes with a playful sense of humor. In contrast, the artist’s smaller works on paper reveal his intuitive use of material in a distilled, yet still assertive manner.
The large paintings facilitate the immense physicality within Sherman’s work, while leaving space for his keen sense of formal resolution. The frenetic and muscular heft of his work is balanced with a measured precision and a thoughtful integration of a number of historical art history influences. Sherman’s cartoonish figuration complements his bold use of abstract mark making which can be construed as portraits, punch lines or poems. He is constantly refining his visual and conceptual vocabulary, recently experimenting with sculptural surfaces and collage.

Only two years after completing his M.F.A., Sherman was featured in a solo traveling exhibition originating at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. His work is in several museum collections and is on permanent display at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas. The artist has been profiled numerous times in New American Paintings, appears in the 2010 book Texas Artists Today and was chosen for the cover of the recently released art history book Texas Abstract: Modern/Contemporary by Michael Paglia and Jim Edwards. Rice University is now collecting his personal artifacts for its research center.
In addition to his many accomplishments, Sherman continues to further his craft and studies. He has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, School of Visual Arts, the McColl Center for Visual Art, Vermont Studio Center, Jentel Artist Residency Program and the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation.
Sherman has been in a number of solo exhibitions across the United States, and his work has been featured in group exhibitions in Texas, California, New York, Florida, Spain, India and Peru.
Sherman lives and works in Houston and New York City.

A Priori Painting Exhibition: Jim Lively opening April 22 at Martsolf Lively

A Fresh Start

presents

A Priori Series of Paintings

by Jim Lively

April 22, 2017 – July 22, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 22, 2017, 6 to 9pm

Fashion designer, Paulette Martsolf and artist, Jim Lively brought their creative talents together to create an innovative concept of merging unique and original fashion with contemporary visual art. The concept gave birth to the endeavor known as “Allie – Coosh Lifestyle” and “Martsolf Lively Contemporary” where fashion gracefully and seamlessly collides with fine art. Previously, Paulette owned Allie-Coosh which featured her own creative fashion for twenty-four years located in Snider Plaza. Due to escalating rent, she decided to renovate the building she owned near downtown Richardson which housed her manufacturing. The renovations resulted in an industrial chic venue which now houses both her manufacturing, a fashion boutique, art gallery and artist studio.

Customed TailoredAs the renovations began to unfold, Jim contemplated as to what might be an appropriate theme for a series of paintings to christen the new venue. After some thought, he kept being drawn back to his days in college where he had the luxury of studying philosophy. Jim was always intrigued by the concept of a priori which may be defined as relating to or denoting reasoning or knowledge that proceeds from theoretical deduction rather than from observation or experience.

The first painting in this series is entitled “Fresh Start” which is an abstract piece that incorporates imaginary asymmetrical shapes into what appear to be wood grain slats. By its title, the painting is not dependent upon past experience but instead is forward looking and intended to be somewhat unique. Several of the pieces in the series such as the whimsically titled “Little Black Dress” embraces the theme of the Allie – Coosh Lifestyle and Martsolf Lively Contemporary of where fashion collides with art.

Jack Whitten: Earlier Works at Bivins Gallery

Jack Whitten

Bivins Gallery is pleased to present Jack Whitten: Earlier Works from April 1-May 6, 2017.

Created during a five-year period in the late 1960s, the paintings and works on paper featured in Jack Whitten: Earlier Works reference race, cosmology, music, and politics. Influenced by personal relationships with Willem de Kooning, Martin Luther King, Jr., Miles Davis, Philip Guston, and Franz Kline, the abstractions reflect the social and political turmoil of the era. The conversation will be joined by Dallas’s own local artist Spencer Evans, whose work references issues of identity and image in the black community. Please join us at the opening reception on April 1 from 5 pm – 8pm, at the gallery’s Uptown location, to continue the dialogue. Bivins Gallery is located at 300 Crescent Court, Suite 100,Dallas, TX 75201. http://www.bivinsgallery.com/ Please contact anna@bivinsgallery.com for more details.
