Katheryn Market Fine Arts presents Fran Shalom, “The Pause that Refreshes”

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Pause that Refreshes, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Fran Shalom ongoing through June 15th.

In this new body of work, Shalom’s quirky, abstract paintings strike a balance between formality and playful exuberance. Shapes are pared to their basic elemental forms and animated in vibrant, cartoony color with clearly defined edges, representing a quest for order and simplicity. The forms reference the human body but are open to interpretation. They become characters that inhabit her studio, keeping her company and engaging in silent conversations.

qUiRk curated by Fran Shalom at Markel Fine Arts

Markel Fine Arts is please present, “!qUiRk”  a group show curated by Fran Shalom. The origin of the word “quirk” is unknown, but when it first appeared in the 16th century it referred particularly to a sudden twist, turn or curve, particularly in writing or drawing, later acquiring the specific sense of a “flourish” in writing or drawing. Using a variety of media – knitted yarn, clay, old photographs, ceramics & paint – the works of many of the seventeen artists represented in !qUiRk materially involve turns, curves, three-dimensional twists, sudden deviations, swirls and flourishes.

The exhibit features  work by Laylah Ali, Tom Butler, Mary Carlson, Jennifer Coates, Elisa D’Arrigo, Barbara Friedman, Teri Hackett, Catherine Harggerty, Judith Linares, Dennis Kardon, Andrew Masullo, Nat Meade, Marcy Rosenblatt, Caroline Wells Chandler, Daniel Wiener, Mie Yim, and Charles Yuen.

Radiant at ODETTA Gallery

ODETTA is pleased to present Radiant featuring artists Elizabeth Gourlay, Anne Russinof, and Audrey Stone. The exhibition runs May 23 – June 21st.

Slowly but surely, the repetitive nature of the three artists’ paintings in Radiant marries color and luminosity, resulting in a satisfying meander through subtle experimental shifts and lines of thought. As the colors employed find their voice, our eyes become alert to a disciplined form of playfulness, resulting in pleasure.

Original works of art 2D and 3D, artists books, and limited edition prints are available. Collect works from the very best artists in NYC. Flat File Artist will feature works by Jon Cowan

Why do we love abstract art? Is it that sexy rebellious undertone leftover from abstract mavericks like Kandinsky and Pollock? or Is it because it lets us get lost in a colorful world we can’t control? Read more

Katrine Levin Galleries : The Magical Worlds of Mamuka Dideba | 31 May – 6 June 2019

RUSSIAN … AND GEORGIAN … ART WEEK LONDON 2019

One of the oldest cultures in Europe and Central Asia, Georgia is a land of inspiration, diversity, and artistic mastery. It is the home of Mamuka Dideba.

The art of Dideba, who is dubbed “Georgia’s Bruegel”, brings joy through a unique expression of the wonder, the subtle humour, and the warm and often surreal philosophical outlook that is quintessentially Georgian.

A master of figurative and abstract, Dideba paints in exquisite Renaissance-era imprimatura technique that lights up the paintings from within – a process that requires enormous skill.

Inspired by the Old Masters and Georgia’s rich history, Dideba explores beauty through vivid characters whose unconventional forms and faces convey their essence with gentle humour.  The whimsical background and clothing of the figures incorporate elements of Dideba’s abstracted works, acting as an unconscious bridge between the genres.

His abstracted paintings lure deep inside their magical and irresistibly contemplative worlds through an ingenious interplay of light and colour. It is possible to “walk” for hours through their imperceptibly changing shades.

Born in 1968 in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, Dideba studied at the prestigious Nikoladze School of Art and the Tbilisi State Art Academy. Dideba is known as “Georgia’s Bruegel” because of his deviation from realistic proportions and interest in human behaviour.
