ODETTA’s FOUND OBJECT

Friday, January 18th, 2019
ODETTA is opening the new year with FOUND OBJECT.
The best found objects hold within them the thrill of discovery and instill wonder at their quirky beauty. Glimmering in a ditch or nearly obliterated on pounded pavement, these artists keep their cast-offs, raise them up and present them, for all to see what they would call beautiful. Through the dynamics of opposites: low, unwanted to exalted, transformed, artists Jo Confino, Diane Englander, Deanna Lee, Jane Sangerman, and Sylvia Schwartz see, a little more carefully, what shimmers and shines in world all around us, freely given.
Found Object is the fourth in a series of color-focused exhibitions held in 2018 – 19. ODETTA invited several artists, who would define themselves as colorists, to submit current portfolios for these shows. The exhibitions created from this call were Hot Stuff, January 2018, Mesmerize, September 2018, Las Gravitas, November/Dec 2018, and now Found Object. While color drives the artists to create, the subjects that emerge as narrative in their abstractions have a breadth that is breathtaking.
The Exhibition closes January 27, 2019.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky

Sunday, May 14th, 2017

 Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present STACK, a group exhibition curated by artist Deborah Zlotsky in conjunction with her exhibition of new paintings, BTW also at the gallery.

 The word “stack” has many meanings, like voluptuousness (stacked), worthiness (stack up), and exploding in anger (blow your stack). With today’s political divisions, the connotations lead quickly to “stacked against,” using power in a partisan way to force someone to do something or to tip the scales in favor of one side. We say: “The deck is stacked against me.” “The odds are stacked against you.” “The numbers are stacked against us.” Yet a position of insight and resistance can be reached by knowing how things are stacked up.

 Artists Joe Amrhein, Susan D’Amato, Torkwase Dyson, Ginny Casey, Deborah Dancy, James Esber, Valerie Hegarty, Nina Katchadourian (“What Did I Do?” image above), Joan Linder, Mary Lum, Thomas McArdle, Susan Meyer, Gina Occhiogrosso, Crit Streed, Craig Taylor and Heeseop Yoon combine and order things, and thereby acknowledge that no one element can tell the whole truth. The visibility of the parts within the whole identifies the importance of these smaller, multiple truths, offering us a glimpse of what was lost and gained in the process of assembling and condensing. The sum of the parts is both the sum and the parts, and the poignancy of that equation is beautifully realized in these works.

Show is ongoing and closes June 17.,

Karin Weber Gallery announces a special site installation by Zhu Jingyi on 2nd December (Hong Kong)

Friday, November 21st, 2014

Karin Weber Gallery announces a special site installation by gallery artist Zhu Jingyi as part of Hong Kong Art Gallery Week. Between 7 and 8pm on Tuesday, 2nd December 2014, Zhu will demonstrate his unique three dimensional interpretation of traditional Chinese ink painting by using resin and a heat gun to create a special artwork on the gallery premises.

.
About the Artist
Zhu Jingyi (China, b. 1975) reimagines classic shanshui landscapes in a three-dimensional format through the application of resin onto canvas and wire to create textured structures that enliven otherwise flat, ink painted works.  ‘My works are very three dimensional.  Thereby they are subject to different interpretations based on the environment.  The semi-transparent nature of resin allows the work to fuse and connect with the space,’ comments Zhu.
