Stephen Maine- Press Play – at ODETTA

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present their second solo exhibition in our new Chelsea location – Stephen Maine- Press Play with supporting artworks by Ryan Sarah Murphy as our Flat File Feature Artist.

Through humble materials, and an exploration into gravity and printmaking, Stephen Maine, in Press Play offers an updated approach to gestural abstraction. On a monumental scale, Maine creates a playful system of applying paint to canvas that is simultaneously performance, Rube Goldbergian engineering, and “blind painting.” Employing traditional printmaking skills, like developing a registration system for applying multiple layers of color, but on a gigantic scale, the plates obscure his view of what is actually happening on the canvas. The resulting color-rich abstractions offer surprising nuances and associations with landscape and science, while toggling between macro and micro perspectives. In contrast, Ryan Sarah Murphy’s abstractions, featured in our Flat Files, decidedly coax the found packaging materials to interact with one another in unexpected, yet lucid ways. The mass produced, tossed out, eye-candy-colored shards and planes move Murphy to develop a grammar that presents bridges, overpasses, subway lines… the urban landscape.

ODETTA presents Mesmerize – a group show

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018
Color is a catalyst. Emotion, communication, and pleasure are but a few of the ways we map human characteristics onto color. Mesmerize is about the escape into color through playful, yet deeply considered means. ODETTA is pleased to offer the second of four color-focused exhibitions for 2018. The exhibition brings together four artists, Elizabeth Gourlay, Stephen Maine, Carol Salmanson, Audrey Stone whose paintings and LED light installations are both formally constructed and experimental. Color is their teacher. Communicating to us on multiple levels, the gallery invites you to enjoy their newest works, fresh out of the studio.
ODETTA’s featured flat file artists for this exhibition are Nancy Baker, Rob de Oude, Audrey Stone

The show runs from September 7th – 30th. The opening reception is on Friday September 7th 6 – 8pm.
