Flyer: Illustrated Press Release _ A Present Abstract

A Present Abstract features two works by each artist that originate from the same or a related series. Works act as points of study within the artists’ greater practice that employ abstraction as a tool for reconciling contemporary art’s relationship with the past. By addressing the legacy of art-historical abstraction and its continued influence on art-production today, these artists create new and aptly self-assured forms of abstract representation. The works display a convergence between representation and abstraction that operate between perception and the physical object.

Níall McClelland’s practice has long involved unpredictable and unconventional approaches to reproduction. With his latest ink-on-paper drawings, McClelland methodically crops, enlarges, and simplifies self-sourced imagery themed around machismo, the genius and hero figures, utopia, and their inevitable collapse. Although removed from their original context and transformed into contemporary, benign versions of historical Op Art, the imagery maintains the aura of its original source. In these works, the line between cool and cringe-worthy is blurred, the anti-climax is fetishized, and the apocalypse is romanticized.

 

Other works explore the relationship between reality and representation though challenging the space between the pictorial, the illusionistic, and the actual. Jade Rude uses perception-shifting tactics to explore formal elements of space and form. Her two works Dürer Solid, Form and Flat and Dürer Solid Unfolded and Flattened are formalist explorations of the ‘Dürer Solid,’ which was modeled after the truncated rhombohedron depicted in the iconic engraving Melencolia I (1514) by Albrecht Dürer. Rude’s work destabilizes the viewer’s perception of two and three- dimensionality.

Jon Sasaki’s series of charcoal rubbings are crude reproductions of famous works on paper. By employing a method of transfer meant for obtaining surface detail to a one-dimensional piece, Sasaki performs both an homage and an erasure of the original. The resulting monochromatic charcoal squares contain nuances that are mostly the result of Sasaki’s hand and maintain a precarious connection to the content and concept of the original works.

In his Mirror Drawing series, Derek Sullivan probes the reflective surface of a standard everyday bathroom mirror. Resulting drawings are both abstract and representational at once, capturing the optical effects of reflected light and shadow through a technique that prioritizes pattern and surface. Sullivan’s multi-disciplinary practice combines the visual aesthetic of modernist design and geometric abstraction with the forms and strategies of conceptual art to create a cacophony of messages and inter-work refractions.

Jim Verburg represents light and shadow through a complex and emotional approach to minimalism. His works both echo and reimagine the historical canon of abstract expressionism, presenting delicate portraits of depth, focus, and texture that emit infinitely subtle visual noise. By mimicking the characteristics of reflection, absorption, opacity, and translucence, Verburg treats light as both material and subject, in order to push the boundaries of the physical by prioritizing the intangibilities of form.

A Present Abstract encourages viewers identify with the characteristics of contemporary abstraction. Each artist employs abstraction as part of their conceptual framework as well as their formal approach. In these infinitely nuanced works, viewers witness the juxtaposition between the pure pleasure of looking and a habitual self- reflexivity that is often present in contemporary art. What was once a revolutionary turn of events in the history of art has become a normalized formal technique of artistic expression. Viewers have long understood and accepted abstract art as ‘Art.’ As such, contemporary artists employing abstraction today must do what contemporary artists do best: grapple with their inheritance through acts of apotheosis, appropriation, reconfiguration, and disregard.

Alex Bowron is an art-writer and curator based in Toronto. She holds an MA in Critical Cultural Theory from the University of Leeds, UK and a BFA in Sculpture/Installation from OCAD University. Bowron’s writing has appeared in publications, galleries, and artist projects in Canada and abroad. She is Manager of Operations at MKG127 and current acting Coordinator for the Canadian Art Foundation’s annual fundraising auction.

Níall McClelland grew up in Toronto, spent many of his summers in Northern Ireland, and studied in Vancouver. His work has been published in Adbusters, Arkitip, Color, Design Anarchy, Hunter and Cook, I-Live-Here, Lowdown, Made, and The Walrus, among others. Recent exhibitions include In The Dark at Eleanor Harwood (San Francisco); Resurrection at Cinders Gallery (Brooklyn). The artist was also included along with Jeremy Jansen, Ellsworth Kelly and Richard Serra in the group show Black To Back And Light at CR in 2009. Níall McClelland is based in Toronto where he is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery.

Jade Rude works in a variety of media including sculpture, installation, photography, and video. Her work addresses surface aesthetics and employs perception-shifting tactics to playfully examine the relationship between reality and representation. Rude has studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, the Norwich University of the Arts in Norwich, U.K., and the University of Oslo in Oslo, Norway. Recent exhibitions and projects include Unfixed at Zalucky Contemporary, Toronto, The Golden Solid at YYZ Artist’s Outlet, Toronto, Surface and Strategem at Division Gallery, Toronto, The Gaze, part of the 10 x 10 photography exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel, Toronto, W: at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, Toronto and Instant Messaging and Other Texts, a project for the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU) Vitrines, Toronto. In addition to exhibiting in Canada, Rude has also participated in group exhibitions in the US, England, Japan, Australia, Argentina, and Columbia. Her work appears in numerous public and private collections in Canada and beyond. Jade Rude is based in Toronto.

Jon Sasaki is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes performance, video, objects, and installation. He has had solo exhibitions at the Ottawa Art Gallery, the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as a 2015 performance project at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Sasaki has participated in recent group exhibitions at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, (Seoul, South Korea), Platform Art Spaces (Melbourne, Australia); Nihonbashi Institute of Contemporary Art, (Tokyo, Japan); and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (Toronto). He has completed various recent public art commissions, and his video work has screened at numerous locations in Canada and abroad. He was the recipient of the 2015 Canadian Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Prize (Dufftown, Scotland.). He holds a BFA from Mount Allison University (Sackville, NB). Jon Sasaki is based in Toronto where he is represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery.

Derek Sullivan employs drawing, painting, sculpture, book works, and installation to question familiar forms and genres, often to examine the links between one discipline and the next. Sullivan holds a BFA from York University and an MFA from the University of Guelph. He has exhibited throughout Canada and internationally, including solo shows the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, the University of Waterloo Art Gallery, Optica, Mercer Union, Kiosk, White Columns, and Librairie Florence Loewy. In 2012, Sullivan was shortlisted for the Sobey Art Award. Derek Sullivan is based in Toronto and is represented by Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran in Montreal, Galerie Emmanuel Hervé in Paris, Susan Hobbes Gallery in Toronto, and Galerie Tatjana Pieters in Ghent.

Jim Verburg’s practice stems from photography and is inspired by the subtle, nuanced, and fleeting affects of light. Solo exhibitions include Afterimage at Galerie Nicolas Robert, Montréal (2014), What is Missing / What is Seen for widmertheodoridis, Zurich at VOLTA NY, New York City (2015), Light Becomes Form, The Horizon Rests Into View at Texas Contemporary, Houston (2015), and Impermanent Horizon at Galerie Nicolas Robert, Montréal (2016).

Made for T.V. opens Nov. 2 at the Kettle

Made for T.V. – Opens Thursday, 11/ 2
“A group exhibition curated by Raymond Butler”

https://www.facebook.com/events/121672301856698

November 2 – November 18
Kettle Art

2650 Main St, Dallas, Texas 75226
Kettle Art is proud to host ‘”Made for TV” a group exhibition featuring the work of Christopher Machorro, Franco Fazio, Max Quest, and guest curator Raymond Butler. Together these artists explore pop culture, street art, cartoons, video games, etc. reflecting sentimental values from their personal perspectives.. All works use vibrant colors and playful imagery to entertain, challenge, and guide the viewer.

Made for T.V – About the Artists.

Christopher Machorro : I specialize in illustration with a background in Graphic Design and Street Art. My art style comes from a combination of Pop Surrealism, Graffiti, and Low Brow Art where I emphasize the combination of different colors as my focus when producing works. Some of my inspiration come from adult swim animations, pop culture, and music which influence the imagery produce.

Max Quest : I go by the name Max Quest, originally born in Mexico I grew up watching anime and Saturday morning cartoons on Cartoon Network. What stood out to me the most about those shows were the bright vivid colors. No matter what the mood being fed by the images portrayed the colors mellowed the tone by masking it with this fun spectrum of color. Which sometimes hid in plain sight violence, tragedy, or sadness. These shows along with my passion for drawing inspired me to explore my interest in color. Today my work uses the same techniques to represent metaphors of my own personal experiences. It’s a way for me to cope with adulthood and make sense of the world around me. The images in my work spawn from graffiti, cartoons and pop culture.

Franco Fazio :As an artist, my work often represents a transition of states, and heavy juxtaposition as a mean of challenging and subverting the perceived merit of traditional imagery within art. My work pulls heavily, and sometimes directly from ideas associated with pop-culture and street art. I often try to sample small aspects of established works within fine art and submerge them into heavily pop-culture influenced pieces as a means of asking questions; namely, is the incorporation of a pre-established and successful work cheapened in a contemporary context? And are the two worlds mutually exclusive? I like to think that the contrast of imagery and different cultural contexts persuades viewers to analyze the contrasting elements as a cohesive idea. Another consistency in my work is the implementation of vague and abstracted figures, often intertwined by a gloved hand attached to a seemingly endless arm. I use this as a physical representation of my love of pop-culture and its hold on me, and what I believe to be its hold on society to a greater extent. The reach of pop-culture is powerful, and I think it’s often discredited. Whether viewed as cynical or endearing, It’s my perspective that contemporary artists should be encouraged to borrow and recycle ideas from established work in an effort to shift preconceived perceptions of originality—allowing for alternative methods to describe the work in a new context, this redefines the appropriated imagery and allows for the juxtaposition of elements to suggest new meaning in ideas.

Raymond Butler: I’m a Dallas based artist and curator. Currently, I am the Gallery Director of the H. Paxton Moore Gallery at El Centro College. In the past, my work has consisted of painting, drawing, sculpture, and collage. My most recent work revolves around my experiences growing up in a rough part of Dallas in the ’90s. There weren’t a lot of children in my neighborhood to play with, so I spent a lot of time watching television, eating sandwiches, drawing and hanging out with family.

The Importance of Sandwiches and Cartoon houses:
It seems like a random thing to mention in the grand scheme of my childhood, but I found creative inspiration in the remembrance of sandwiches, the food of champions for most kids growing up poor in America. For some time, I’ve been creating handmade wooden versions of sandwiches I call “Sammys.” They are a nostalgic, tongue-in-cheek representation of the ups and downs of my upbringing. They are all different in some ways; anthropomorphised cartoonishly, sometimes missing details of what one might expect to be on a sandwich. This could be interpreted a number of ways, but I’m focusing on how the contents of the sandwiches depended on the availability of resources from my childhood.

Like the cartoons I adored so much, these pieces are not only an expression of the time and environment of my youth but also an escape: the Sammys make absurdly funny faces, almost in reaction to those cartoons, which in turn offered humor, violence, and endless entertainment away from the realities of my world. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom. Buried within the systemic and social otherization experienced, was a sense of community, of belonging; we worked together and helped each other out despite our own personal barrier.

The End and The Beginning opens Sept. 2 at TWU East | West Galleries

The End and The Beginning

East | West Galleries, Texas Woman’s University, 9/2/17 – 10/15/17

Opening Reception, 9/2/17, 5-7pm

Curated by Danielle Avram, TWU Gallery Director

The End and The Beginning is part of an ongoing dialogue about the intersections of humanity, technology, spirituality, and the possibility of magic and mythos amidst chaos. This iteration explores the cyclicality of ecosystemic adaptations that derive from responding to continual shifts in physical, emotional, mental, and technological landscapes. At an ever-increasing rate our pasts and presents are written, forgotten, and rewritten in an effort to rectify who we have been and who we are, with who we should be, and what we could become. Yet who we are at any given point in time may simply be the result of adjusting to the aftermath of our predecessors – a point along a continual loop of creation and destruction, a point of no end and no beginning, or a point that is both the end and the beginning. Are we working towards something imperceptibly larger or merely evolving/devolving as dictated by circumstance?

Featuring work by Morehshin Allahyari, Martin Back, Sean Miller, and Jenny Vogel.

EIGHT: Curated by Art Room opens Sept. 9

Artwork:
Tiger Hunting in Korea, Oil on panel, 16 x 20 inches, 2016

“EIGHT” 
On exhibit September 9 – 27, 2017 
With reception from 6 – 9 pm on Saturday, September 9th

Exhibited at the
Fort Worth Community Arts Center
1300 Gendy St
Fort Worth, TX 76107

http://fwcac.com


Art Room is pleased to announce its upcoming group exhibition “EIGHT” in conjunction with the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association’s Fall Gallery Night 2017. Exhibited at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, “EIGHT” represents the work of local, regional, and national artists, including Charis Ammon, Lauren Hana Chai, Alicia Eggert, Nathaniel Evans, Mariell Guzman, Jessica McClendon, and Melissa Mohammadi.

The artists featured in “EIGHT” transform their blank canvases – whether that be linen, paper, yupo, or the landscape – into rhythmic, gestural works that express a curiosity of self, time, and place. Through a narrative exploration of the personification of inanimate objects, Charis Ammon’s paintings consider the way in which borders and portals affect proprietorship. Her window blinds, fences, and walls bring about questions regarding one’s relationship with the “inside and outside world.” Lauren Hana Chai creates work using unconventional methodologies that include mixed media and oil on a variety of matrixes that reference her multicultural Eastern / Western upbringing. Her work reflects her own identity, as well as addresses taboo, feminism, sexuality, violation, and oppression. While using time and language as artistic materials, Alicia Eggert investigates the notion of absence and presence through an exploration of cycles, time, and weather. Her work questions the way one understands the past, present, and future in combination with the way one relates her or himself to time and experience.

“EIGHT” will run through September 27, 2017, at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. Gallery hours are MondayFriday, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm. For additional information please contact Nathan Madrid, Katie Murray, or Deedra Baker at artroomfw@gmail.com, and visit our website www.artroom.space for more information about upcoming shows and to join our mailing list. An exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.

HINTERLAND

Prince Zaar – Dan Phillips – Rich Cali – Anthony Dominguez

upstairs gallery – Robert Ryan

            June 11 – August 6, 2017

opening celebration party:  Sunday, June 11th, 4-7pm 

 sponsored by Chango Loco Mezcal

  with Peruvian Chica music by Los Mosaics

at Webb Gallery in downtown Waxahachie, Texas – 209 W. Franklin – 75165 – (972)938-8085webbartgallery.com

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.

Contextual Assembly opening Feb. 23 at Kettle Art

Contextual_Assembly_square

Kettle Art proudly presents ‘Contextual Assembly’ a group exhibit featuring new works by Corey Godfrey, Hilda Lafleur, Roberta Masciarelli, and Amy Seymour.

From Corey’s soft, yarn focus on stones, to Hilda’s psychedelic imagery, to Roberta’s recycled constructions, to Amy’s imaginative world of clay, these four artists are united in whimsical, dream-like realities. This exhibit opens on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 7:00-10:00pm, and runs through Saturday, March 18.

Kettle Art Gallery Deep in the Art of Ellum
2650-B Main Street  Dallas, TX 75226 www.kettleart.com

Roberta_Masciarelli_Animal_Condo

Corey Godfrey is a Texas-based artist whose past works have focused primarily on women as subject matter, utilizing yarn as her medium, a material traditionally associated with them. In her current series, Corey is inspired by stones found in nature that exemplify beauty, strength, and a profound sense of femininity. Corey holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from North Texas State University.

Roberta Masciarelli  is a Brazilian-born visual artist based in Dallas for the past eighteen years. Her art consists of sculptures, or constructions, created from found objects and materials, such as metal hardware. Having been a full-time artist for approximately ten years, Roberta has participated in art events within the US including Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona, and New York. Internationally, she has exhibited in collective exhibits in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Bosnia, Japan, Italy, and India. She earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

HIlda Lafleur is a self-taught, Texas-born-and-bred artist. Hilda’s unique eye for color produces upbeat paintings inspired by frequent trips throughout Europe, further influenced by a life spent in Dallas during the turbulent sixties, seventies, and beyond. Her works are created on hand made canvas and painted with a unique concoction of acrylic paint and secret ingredients.

Amy Seymour is a Dallas native who has been creating art, sculpture, and photography for approximately twenty years. Amy’s work depicts a playful and mischievous vision from a dreamy realm within her subconscious view of the world around us.

The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery Presents “We Appreciate Your Business”

Hflores

Dallas, TX – The H. Paxton Moore Fine Art Gallery at El Centro College presents “We Appreciate Your Business,” a group exhibition running from January 23- February 15, featuring work by Favio Moreno, Kat Freedman, Hatziel Flores, Christopher Bingham, Antolin Pineda, Brennen Bechtol, Fransisco Javier and Arturo Donjuan. An Artist Reception will be held February 9 from 2-6 p.m.

This exhibition focuses on a group of local artists whose work displays expressive use of color, text, and iconic imagery to explore Lowrider culture, nostalgia, self-exploration, Latin American culture and Pop Surrealism.

Hatziel Flores is a Dallas-based artist who finds himself just as comfortable in street art as in a gallery setting with his unique, new, contemporary portrait style. Hatziel has shown work in different galleries around the United States and has done commission work for big businesses such as NBC, Red Bull, Nike, and MTV.

Favio Moreno likes to explore painting, printmaking, and design in his work. Moreno has cultivated a visual language, drawing from an array of influences including Latin and American Culture as well as iconography and contemporary design. His signature style utilizes hard-edge painting with an extremely refined sense of color.

Kat Freedman is a calligrapher and graphic designer based out of Dallas. She has been utilizing her artistic skill for over three years and works as a full time calligrapher for Halo Calligraphy, crafting hand addressed envelopes and cards, to more personal and unconventional items such as wedding china, sea shells, decorative agate and even urns. From traditional flourished calligraphy to modern and free hand design, Kat works with a variety of mediums for event and wedding planners as well as other artists and brands.

Christopher Bingham was born and raised in Dallas. Art has always been his passion. He began college as a graphic design major but quickly turned his focus to studio arts. Since graduating in 2006 from The University of Texas at Arlington with a bachelor’s degree in Drawing, he has devoted his time to creating art and staying passionate about his craft. When not painting, Chris works on keeping his students motivated to do the same as a high school art teacher. Chris has been a creative force in the North Texas art scene since 2006, displaying his work in the DFW area and all across Texas. Along with having works in numerous private collections, he was also a two-time finalist for the Hunting Art Prize in 2011 and 2015.

Brennen Bechtol is a local DFW sign painter by trade whose work primarily focuses on design and self-exploration. He gets most of his inspiration from other local sign painters and hand painted signs around the city.  Brennen has a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of North Texas College of Visual Arts and Design.

Antolin Pineda is a local airbrush artist who specializes in custom lowrider paint jobs. His work features early native Mexican imagery combined with street art and graffiti culture. Antolin is most known for his work that was featured in a 2013 issue of Lowrider Magazine.

Francisco Javier is mostly a self-taught artist whose inspiration comes from early 20th century surrealist painters, the Romantic era, and the Classical era. Francisco has been an active member of the Dallas art scene since 2011. His current focus is portraiture in acrylic, but he also creates work in oil, pastel, charcoal, and pencil.

“Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade” at CentralTrak

UTDcentraltrak

“Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade”

Saturday, January 21st from 8pm-10pm
CentralTrak presents
Through the Lens: Found Object/Readymade curated by UT Dallas photography and aesthetic studies professor Marilyn Waligore and will feature artists
Susi Brister, Francesca Brunetti, Rachel Cox, Shannon Duncan, Paho Mann, and Kristy Peet.
Guided by Surrealist and Dada practices of the 20th century, contemporary artists use photography and video to document two categories of objects: the found object and the readymade. The designation of the readymade upsets the mass-produced object’s functionality: engaging in play while disrupting work; incorporating humor; challenging the definition of art by presenting works that are ready-to-go — chosen and then recontextualized. Meanwhile, the identification of the found object connects to the unconscious, often tapping the historical context of a previous era, the supposed recollections of a previous owner, which informs the current viewer’s awareness. These actions address the concept of authorship, the definition of art, and the place of the object in commodity culture. The use of photography and video in contemporary art to re-present the object frames it a second time, echoing the relationship between selection and presentation of the object and image.


Events during the run of the exhibition will include two panel discussions with the artists.

Thursday, February 2 at 7pm
will include Rachel Cox, Paho Mann, and Kristy Peet.
Thursday, February 9 at 7pm
will have Susi Brister, Francesca Brunetti, and Shannon Duncan.

Opening Reception for VANGUARD: Anniversary Exhibition Feb. 18

LAUBE_55-16_Dimensions variable (1MB)

Celebrating its fourth year in the Dallas Design District, Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA), presents ‘VANGUARD,’ a group anniversary exhibition featuring distinctive new works by various gallery artists, with an opening reception on Saturday, February 18th from 5-8pm.

Since opening its doors at its second location in February 2013, LRFA has experienced remarkable growth and continued success on Dragon Street. This is due in large part to the gallery’s continually expanding and remarkably diverse roster of contemporary artists. ‘VANGUARD’ will highlight this diversity and present works in a variety of media by midcareer and emerging artists from both Texas and abroad. Though they come from different backgrounds, each artist is producing work at the height of their careers.

LRFA has recently broadened its international focus. ‘VANGUARD’ will present new works by recent additions to the gallery roster including, German artist Michael Laube, South African Artist Gavin Rain, and Chinese Artist Zhuang Hong Yi. This year also marks the addition of nationally and internationally known artists, Hunt Slonem and Cassandria Blackmore.

The success of LRFA’s Dallas location is also owed to the continued support of the gallery’s enthusiastic and continually expanding collector base, whose passion for contemporary art mirrors the growth and success of the Dallas art market and the city’s art scene more broadly. LRFA is extremely grateful to the community for its continued support and looks forward to serving its patrons in the New Year!

VANGUARD’ will be on view through March 25, 2017.
