Quintessence by Eric Robitaille at Decorazon

Monday, July 8th, 2019

Quintessence is referred to as the fifth sense, and is the title of Eric Robitaille’s exhibition at DECORAZON NYC.  Celebrating the idea of beauty in its purest form, Robitaille demonstrates a unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract.

ERIC ROBITAILLE demonstrates a unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract. Building each painting using a very complex construction of high quality detailing and layers, the artist allows a large space for abstract process and flow. Eric Robitaille is a self-taught contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec. He has shown works in several exhibitions across Canada, and is currently represented by galleries in Quebec and Ontario. He also enjoys meeting art buyers personally through independent fairs.

A contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec, Eric Robitaille has a graphic design and illustration background.
Diverse animal and plant life play a large role in his recent series, primarily to symbolize human behavior and life mechanics. His animal subjects display human characteristics and virtues, while carrying messages of “being your best self”.

Through many years of experimentation, Eric Robitaille’s style has evolved from hyper-realism to a unique mixture of abstraction and surrealism. The distinctive integration of contrasting elements, graphic text, colours and layers result in creations that are visually intriguing and dynamic, but above all communicate to perfection the story and significance of each piece.

Exhibition on View: June 27 – August 24, 2019

Susan English Periphery at Kathryn Markel Fine Art

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present its latest solo exhibition of recent paintings by Susan English. At the core of this new body of work are the ideas of space, boundaries, and perception. The periphery is defined as the outer limit or the edge of a place or an object – a dropping off point. English is drawn to the expansive spaces where the horizon is seen as an edge, one that might be perceived only indirectly or unconsciously. The works range of color represents an intersection of the inside and the outside, as well as the limits of color. How far can green be pushed before it becomes blue? How many infinite directions can you push a brown or a gray or a white? A vibrancy and subtle hum of energy is created in the peripheral area between hues, and in the moments where the color is it’s most concentrated. The exploration of space both conscious and subconscious, where the known meets the unknown is a driving force behind the work in Periphery.

Exhibition ongoing through May 4th, 2019

A Circle of Friends by Paul Wirhun at Ivy Brown Gallery

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery celebrates the Easter season with the opening of ‘A Circle of Friends’ by Paul Wirhun. Wirhun explores the emotional roller coaster of loss and the changes it brings. “Death is the ultimate change; we leave behind all we knew and experienced and enter the Unknown.  For those left behind, the death of a loved one can reveal a host of emotions linked to the memories of the dearly departed. To explore this range of experience, I discovered these “skullys” – images based in Tibetan iconography – to be a perfect vehicle. Found in the crowns of protective (demonic) deities, these crazed-looking skulls force us to face the unimaginable with irrational delight. How DO we handle the complex emotions elicited by our experiences of mortality and loss of dear ones seemingly gone forever? How do we keep alive strong bonds of caring and support, when a beloved has died?” This show intends to explore these feelings through a series of drawings, eggshell collages, and objets d’ouef.
PAUL WIRHUN has been working on and with eggshells most of his life, using these organic spherical surfaces to produce innovative objets d’ouef, and broken shells to create collages and eggshell encrusted sculptures. His mastery of these materials comes from a life-long interest in exploring the range of possible expressions in this unique media.
Exhibition runs April 2nd – April 27th

 

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents Nancy Cohen’s Force: Observations from the Interior

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to share Nancy Cohen – Force: Observations from the Interior March 28th – May 4th, 2019. In this most recent body of work, Nancy Cohen continues her exploration of waterways and their human like existence – persevering under constant adversity from outside forces. The imagery derives from memories of particular landscapes Cohen has encountered. Of them, the Samana Bay in the Dominican Republic and the tides of Eastport, Maine, have left a lasting impression on Cohen and are the driving force behind this series. Samana Bay, and a good portion of the Dominican Republic’s natural landscape, has seen the devastating effects of pollution and industry, devastation Cohen witnessed first hand.

ODETTA is Moving from Bushwick to Chelsea

Thursday, March 14th, 2019

ODETTA Gallery after calling Bushwick home for many years is moving their gallery to Chelsea. Currently they are have exhibitions in both locations, one serving as a bridge to the other – collectively the exhibitions are called Femmes Fatales.

Bushwick:
Ann Chernow, dubbed the Queen of Noir, is also one of owner Ellen Hackl Fagen’s mentors. She is honored to bring the artist’s newest works to ODETTA for their final exhibition in the Bushwick gallery. ODETTA is also pleased to feature Susan Bee’s newest paintings and artist’s books as the flat file feature in the Bushwick gallery. The three paintings on the main wall of the studio are focused on mythical goddess figures in the act of smiting their transgressors and saving their people. The exhibition’s run is March 15 – April 14, 2019 with an opening reception Friday, March 15, 6-8 pm. There will also be an artist’s talk, Sunday, March 31, 3:00 pm

Chelsea:
Gelah Penn will install a single, monumental work in ODETTA’s new location in the 1st Dibs Gallery in the Terminal Markets in Chelsea. Like Chernow’s, Penn’s work is significantly informed by film noir. Her site-specific piece, Ebb Tide, embodies noir-esque  light and shadow, and female anxiety and resilience through layers of fabrics and plastics, both translucent and opaque. The exhibition runs from March 15 – April 11, 2019. Meet the artist reception on Friday, March 22, 4-6 pm and Wednesday, March 27, 12-2 pm.
