Deborah Zlotsky’s Now and Later at Kathryn Markel Fine Arts

Sunday, September 29th, 2019
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to announce Now and later, an exhibition of new work by Deborah Zlotsky. The show marks the artist’s fourth solo show with the gallery, and the first since she was awarded a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship.

Zlotsky’s abstract paintings are at once vivid and hard to categorize. They reference 1960s psychedelia and the graphic boldness of Pop painting, and pay homage to Surrealist and Renaissance traditions through playful trompe-l’œil,disruptions. Her use of color, shape, form, and perspectival shifts create vibrant paintings that are both timeless and contemporary.  The title Now and later refers to what Zlotsky calls the logical illogic of decision-making that over time leads to unforeseen results. She “connects visual fragments, accumulating and connecting parts that don’t necessarily go together. A lopsided system eventually develops in each work that refers more broadly to the way systems might evolve through the accumulation of actions and reactions—in the way complexities of power are built over time through accidents that get baked in.” The drips, abrasions, and stains reveal the months, and sometimes years, the process takes.

Now and later also marks the first public exhibition of Zlotsky’s explorations of vintage scarves from the 1960s and 1970s, which embody their aging, wear, and the passage of time. She creates her scarf tapestries through a process of combining and connecting that, similar to her painting, contain surprising synchronicities. (more…)

Katheryn Market Fine Arts presents Fran Shalom, “The Pause that Refreshes”

Friday, May 24th, 2019

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present The Pause that Refreshes, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Fran Shalom ongoing through June 15th.

In this new body of work, Shalom’s quirky, abstract paintings strike a balance between formality and playful exuberance. Shapes are pared to their basic elemental forms and animated in vibrant, cartoony color with clearly defined edges, representing a quest for order and simplicity. The forms reference the human body but are open to interpretation. They become characters that inhabit her studio, keeping her company and engaging in silent conversations.

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

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.
