Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening at Ivy Brown Gallery

Sunday, September 1st, 2019

Ivy Brown Gallery invites you to explore the mystery and intrigue behind Joshua Goode’s ‘Rhoman Ruins’ opening Tuesday, September 10, 6-8pm.

Few know that the origins of the Bermuda Triangle myth began in New York City on a triangular piece of land that eventually became the foundation of the Triangle Building in the Meatpacking District.

Mystery and intrigue has long surrounded the Triangle Building, but the truly fantastical stories pre-date the building by thousands of years to the time of the ancient Aurora-Rhomans. Joshua Goode is currently excavating the ruins of a pre-historic zoo deep below the foundations of the Triangle Building that held creatures believed to live solely in the imagination. Majestic bronze sculptures of these mythical creatures and ornate altarpieces were left as prayer offerings which also included ritual human sacrifice.  (more…)

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
Tuesday, February 5, 6-8pm Exhibition dates February 5-March 5
