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

 

Endolllentions at Ivy Brown Gallery

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery continues this years programing with ‘Endollenations’ a playful yet poignant body of work by Thedra Cullar-Ledford.

For this series Thedra Cullar-Ledford paints the bodies of models to look like a doll of their choice, photographs them in poses accentuating their objectness, and then paints onto the prints to further enhance the “doll-ness” of the image. In these deceptively straightforward works, she uses the visual vocabulary of dolls to blur the line between an actual living-and-breathing person and the socially-or commercially-distorted representations of how a person should present themselves to us as viewers.

Opening reception

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.

Brian Neish’s Deepest Harmony at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

Ivy Brown Gallery proudly presents Brian Neish’s first solo New York exhibition:  ‘Deepest Harmony’. ‘Deepest Harmony’ is a series created specifically for this exhibition and further develops Neish’s exploration of time and experience through the layering of paint, color and texture. Recently, Neish has invented a fresh approach using loose painted panels before manipulating them to create finished paintings. For this exhibition there are, among other works, 10 pieces, each one having 9 panels giving a possible 95,126,814,720 permutations. It would take the viewer over 3,000 years to explore all the available combinations in just one piece.

Neish’s interest is unswerving in expressing something of the actual properties inherent to oil paint as a material in its own right. Paint is dragged and spread across its support revealing and concealing older layers underneath: at times spilling over the edge to add an element of chaos within the imposed formality of the depicted shapes, celebrating the paint’s subliminal qualities, and allowing the marks to take you where they will.

Opening Reception Monday, September 11th, 6-8pm

Exhibition dates September 12th-October 18th

Jorge Joubert’s “Empty Hole’ opens at the Ivy Brown Gallery

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

  The Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Jorge Joubert’s New York City exhibition “Empty Hole’. The exhibition runs  May 9th, through May 30th 2017. Joubert is searching for his path, his place in the world, his reason to exist, a question we often ask ourselves, “Why are we here?”.

His camera is the medium he uses to express his emotions, he takes a painstaking amount of time to plan and create each image. They reflect his search for an answer he may never get. It is his chosen route to self-knowledge and exploration.
