“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.

Woodturning Art Exhibit in June at The Artists Showplace Gallery: Reception June 17

woodturnersjune

The Artists Showplace Gallery is pleased to present the stunning work of nationally recognized woodturners Kevin Bassett and Gary Sanders from Saturday, June 3, to Friday, June 30. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Kevin Bassett’s interest in the art of woodturning evolved from his extensive study of plant pathology in his home state of Colorado, followed by a distinguished 40-plus-year career as a certified arborist. He describes his work as a collaboration with nature. “Even though I choose the shape, form and utility of a piece of a tree, ultimately the tree has its own voice. I am only a conduit through which the tree is able to speak.”

Gary Sanders, a retired firefighter from Greenville, Texas, began woodturning professionally in 1993. His artwork has been accepted into national juried woodturning exhibitions, and he has work in private collections and museums. Gary teaches locally and has conducted woodturning demonstrations across the country and in Australia. He is known for his finishing techniques and his eye for detail.

Caroline Mousseau: Surrounding Isolations opens June 16 at CYDONIA

Caroline Mousseau, bloom, 2017, oil on canvas, 24x20in, Image courtesy of the Artist, CYDONIA, Fort Worth. 4MB

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.

###  FLYER: CYDONIA Caroline Mousseau Surrounding Isolations Press Release

Caroline Mousseau’s Surrounding Isolations opens on Friday, June 16, 2017 and runs until Saturday, July 29, 2017.

Patrick Turk: The Demiurge Exhibition opens June 17 at Mystic Lyon

Exhibition Title: Patrick Turk: The Demiurge Exhibition Dates: June 17 – October 17, 2017 Opening Reception: Saturday, June 17th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Please join us in celebration of artist Patrick Turk’s new public art installation, The Demiurge, made possible by an Individual Artist Grant Award, funded by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. An opening reception will be held, Saturday, June 17th, from 6-9pm. The installation will be on view through Saturday, October 17th at Mystic Lyon in Houston, TX.

The Demiurge is the builder of the Universe and all things material. It is the force through which Everything is conceived and created. It is atomic and molecular. It is liquid, gas, and solid. It is bacteria, amoeba, and fungi. It is plants, animals and all of us.

Quasi-scientist and self-taught artist, Patrick Turk explores the mysteries of the universe in his highly detailed and imaginative hand-cut paper assemblages. Images taken from any number of resources including: science- fiction novels, encyclopedias, history and scientific diagrams, are cut and assembled in oftentimes multidimensional surfaces to create a curious and dark narrative. Says Turk, “The intense levels of detail become a microcosm, forming a reflection of the human relationship to the plasticity of time and space, and to the process of self-unfolding.”

Patrick Turk was born in Galveston, Texas and lives and works in Houston. His assemblages have been exhibited throughout Houston in galleries including Art Storm, Lawndale Art Center and Rudolph/Projects/Art Scan as well as galleries in Galveston, Texas and Los Angeles, California. In 2013, he was an Artist in Residence at the Lawndale Art Center. His works have been published several times in Mung Being Magazine and include high profile commissions for the 2009 Houston Art Car Parade Poster as well as the Philokalia album cover by Golden Cities. Patrick Turk is one of 60 artists included in the 2016 book, The Art of Found Objects: Interviews with Texas Artists (Texas A&M Press), authored Robert Craig Bunch.

“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.”

Artist Statement

I am always conscious of my place in the landscape and my impact on the environment. In my work I respond to visual influences that reflect time through cyclical natural processes. My work has been influenced by information gathered at various “sites”, places in the natural environment that I have responded to visually. The connection of the natural in conjunction with mechanized systems that we as humans are a part of, influence my work.  I am interested in how we as human beings in the 21st century interact with the landscape. We often have the best intentions in mind but in actuality we cause more harm than good. Through the tangible experiences that shape our lives we see life, death, decay, and rebirth. These extremes in life and nature make me aware of my own impermanence and just like the highest mountains whither to sand so will my body turn to dust. I make objects that represent these natural processes of time and life and show a depleted barren depiction of the future of our fragile landscape.

The idea of time in my work is activated on two levels, one of actual time that I occupy and also geological time that has come before me and will continue long after I’m gone. I am interested in the current time in history in regards to the human interaction and neglect of stewardship to the land that we all share. Whether that is the depletion of natural resources or the over excavated landscape in search of these finite materials. The landscape in which we are currently observing is being transformed by human interactions rather than geological time. Through this process our civilization is altering and shaping the vary planet that we all inhabit and re writing our own geological history in the dirt.

My work has a sense of artifact with a raw natural appearance. I respond to artifactual quality of my work on a visceral and conceptual level. I see the artifact as being able to speak not just about change but also about context and content of a civilization.  I use hand built and mold processes to create an environment for the clay to react naturally to the elements of the firing. To allow the clay to do what in nature it would without my interaction. I incorporate my hand through use of tooling of the surface to create faults and tears to insinuate the infiltration of the man and machine. I see this way of working as cyclical and returning to the bare essentials of art-making and finding the essence of the material and its structure. The violence in volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are what shape this earth and create the beautiful structures that I directly respond to. I incorporate these observations into my work but in conjuncture the land is also being changed through mining, drilling, and excavation.  I see this accumulation of processes as a way to show the honest of our landscape.

Kettle Art Presents: “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” 

Opening Reception: Friday, June 16, 5-8pm

Kettle Art proudly presents “Sacred: New Works By Justin Clumpner” featuring current illustrations and paintings by the artist, as well as an exclusive, immersive installation, in the artist’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Clumpner’s work continues to explore the implications of America as a “Christian nation.” Working primarily in paint and collage, he depicts symbolic narratives built around portraiture. Using newspaper and advertisements as source material, Clumpner looks to our contemporary existence to find the maddening, the ironic, and the absurd. He uses this imagery to create secular icons of morality inspired by the stained glass windows and illuminated manuscripts that were ever-present in his upbringing. Using these same symbolic elements mixed with contemporary imagery, he creates something both new and familiar.

As Clumpner explains:

We have declared ourselves a Christian nation, but problematically the generosity, sacrifice, and love of our Christian saints do not align with the needs of contemporary America. We will need new saints. Saints of greed and division. Saints that tear apart man and nature, looking for every lucrative resource, and then building walls to protect that wealth. With that in mind, I have created this monument.

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.

Darlia Hobbs Experimental Painting Exhibit opens June 2 in Fort Worth

DarliaPaint can Fly

“Paint Can Fly – VII” by Darlia Hobbs

June 2 – June 29, 2017

Reception: June 2, 2017; 6 – 9pm

Fort Worth Community Arts Center

Darlia Hobbs has traveled to more than 14 countries and 10 oceans/ seas finding eclectic influences for her mixed-media, experimental, and abstract art. Since I began painting, the world of art has been like a rushing river as I stand on the shore and watch it flow by. It’s difficult to take my eyes off of the beautiful, ever-changing flow of ideas, art, and inspirations I see at different depths in the water. The temptation to touch and plunge into the water is irresistible. Once in the water, the feeling is so soothing and satisfying – yet does not quench my thirst for more.

Instinct and experimentation guide me through the process of each piece of art. Often, I dream of new ideas and variations of techniques I’ve seen or tried. What’s truly amazing and rewarding is the friendships of other artists and their willingness to share ideas and techniques. This allows each of us to choose many bright stars from across the art universe to create and evolve our own evergrowing and changing galaxy.

I like to remember some wisdom from artist Ellen J. Langer: “…rules often blind us.” And, “Once we learn how to do something, too often we stop experimenting, learning, and having fun.” NOT ME!

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.
