PANEPINTO GALLERIES, in collaboration with SPEAR STREET CAPITAL, presents REFLECTIONS by Candy Le Sueur

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

PANEPINTO GALLERIES, in collaboration with SPEAR STREET CAPITAL, presents REFLECTIONS, highlighting artwork by Jersey City based artist Candy Le Sueur.

Candy Le Sueur is known for her large-scale expressive abstracted paintings and her intimate mixed media on paper, which includes monotypes. Her imagery offers spontaneous expressions of her perception of the land, sea and sky, seeking to remind us of the eternal beauty beyond a specific space or time.

 The concept behind this exhibition entitled “Reflections” presents a collection of Le Sueur’s work created over the past four years. Her work addresses her continued fascination with the beauty of the natural world. 

The expressive motion of the brushstroke, free floating colors and subtle tonal shifts in Le Sueur’s oil paintings allows one not to look for a particular landscape, but to enjoy the sheer effervescence of the paint itself. Twilight Time, a series of watercolor ink and silver leaf is a new choice of medium for Le Sueur to present her ideas. These small works on paper reflect a larger unpredictable drama of the early night sky at Twilight. Using an etching printing press, she also creates monotypes in a single process on fine Japanese paper. This versatile medium also enables her to construct the entire work from layered printed papers. (more…)

OFF THE GRID at Susan Eley Fine Art

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019
 Susan Eley Fine Art is pleased to present Off The Grid, on view through October 24. This group show explores art inspired by the mathematics of rows and column and features ten artists: PAMELA ALLEN, DOUG ASHFORD, CAROLINE BLUM, LORI ELLISON (COURTESY OF MCKENZIE FINE ART), MAHMOUD HAMADANI, EUN VIVIAN LEE, DAVID REISMAN, AURA ROSENBERG, ANNE SAINT-PIERRE and KATE SNOW. Off The Grid was guest curated by Caroline Blum, an independent curator and artist.

Notes on Off The Grid by David Reisman:

From Excel spreadsheets to Google maps; from the tiles on the subway floor to the electrical systems that make the subway possible, grids are so much a part of our daily experience that they are sometimes ignored or taken for granted. Historically, artists have used grids as tools and as source material; for their practical applications for working out compositions and proportions; and as a means for enlarging and manipulating images in the pre-Photoshop era. Modernist abstract artists like Piet Mondrian, Agnes Martin, and Sol Lewitt were attracted to grids for their own sake, for their austere, no-nonsense quality that could simultaneously suggest modernity, mathematical thought and an aesthetic idealism reflecting a desire for human progress. More recent artists use grids in a more self-conscious, humorous, introspective or ironic way, showing some of the limits and possibilities of progressive ideas in current art. (more…)

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…)
