‘Whispers’ by Angelica Bergamini at the Ivy Brown Gallery through June 21st

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Ivy Brown Gallery presents ‘Whispers’ by Angelica Bergamini, this is her second solo exhibit at the gallery.

“Our present existence is just a cosmic blink. I am trying to hear the beat of the cosmos within myself, the primordial force, to sense the interconnectedness with nature, with all the powers and energies of the universe. To go beyond a sense of separation and to be able to cherish the universality that is implied by our interdependence. Inspired by the times in which the Great Mother was the Great Cosmic Soul (“At the very dawn of religion, God was a woman. Do you remember?- Merlin Stone), I contemplate on the origins of being which connect us across borders, cultures, ethnicities, and religions. Meditating on the original place of origin, reaching for our roots within the cosmos allows me to rediscover and worship our oneness while reconnecting myself to a sense of the infinite. Because beyond the roots of earthly life, we are all immersed in a living universe, in a cosmic placenta.” -Angelica Bergamini

 

“One of the functions of mythology is to present an image of the cosmos in such a way that it becomes the carrier of the mystical realization, so every time you look at it, the walls of space and time open out into the deep dimension of mystery, which is a dimension within ourselves, as well out there” – Joseph Campbell.

Ivy Brown Gallery presents Normaltown by Carol John

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Normaltown by artist Carol John. The artist’s work been widely exhibited in Georgia and New York City. Venues have included The High Museum of Art, MOCA GA, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and Ms. John’s work is in the permanent collection at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta .

Carol John’s art reflects her encounters with mainstream modern artists-showing the obvious influence of Guston and other individualists like Marsden Hartley and Alfred Julio Jensen-it also suggests an appreciation of certain ‘outsider’ artists, as with her improvisational approach to composition. Like quilters of Gee Bend, John often begins a work with little idea of where it will take her pictorially. She might find a composition’s repeating pattern needs to be squeezed to fit within a pictures margins or detoured around a corner for completion as if the papers edge were merely a slight obstacle. In their unrestricted manner, the paintings have much more in common with childhood doodles, mindless of convention and heedless of expectations. That is not to say they are directionless. Guided by insight, they recall the paintings of visionary artists like Howard Finster or J.B Murray, both from Georgia.

— Dennis Harper, Curator and Artist

The opening reception is on February 13th from 5:00 – 8:00. The exhibit is ongoing until March 13th.

Ivy Brown Gallery presents So do I

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to share ‘So do I’, artist Kenjiro Kitade’s search for the universal common ground in life, even in conflict. ‘Conflict is part of human nature, there is always a Side A and Side B in life and in this show it is the spectators point of view that I looking for, the place where we all can say “So Do I’ to each other and to ourselves.’

The main theme of Kitade’s artwork is focused on questioning.  The sources of the ideas are picked up from his own life experiences, starting from personal experiences and expanding into what’s happening in the world, including history, current event and future issues.  Based on these themes, He questions why it’s happening, what’s the real meaning, Kitade wants to point out these issues to people. “I would be very happy if my pieces triggered discussions with those who see my artwork.  Each piece of artwork has a theme and its own point of view, a sarcastic nuance, and I want to plant a seed in the viewers’ hearts and minds.”

The exhibition opens December 6th and runs January 6th. The artists reception is December 6th doors open at 6:00pm.

Lorene Anderson’s Swirl and Roil at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Monday, April 17th, 2017
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present Swirl and Roil, Lorene Anderson’s first solo show with the gallery.
Lorene Anderson‘s paintings have a kinetic energy perfectly fitting her exploration of turbulence, gesture, and the movement and folds of space. Her undulating stripes, dimensional layers, and selective use of reflective paint transforms a two-dimensional surface into a churning, vibrating composition. The dynamic nature of her pieces even suggest environments beyond the picture plane itself, her marks seemingly extending around and beyond the edges of her paintings.
Anderson’s work is a playful investigation of figure-ground and the relationship between positive and negative space. Her paintings, an example Spatial Redux, featured above, are hypnotizing, shifting from meditative tranquility to roiling chaos and back again. Exhibition runs through May 6th.
