Blossoms – Magic Mirror by Joel Handorff at Ivy Brown Gallery

Ivy Brown Gallery is pleased to present Blossoms – Magic Mirror by Joel Handorff. The exhibit is comprised of new works that explore transparency, surface, and layering, reimagining the idea of a “flower painting.” The flowers in these paintings melt and fold into a mysterious space. Blossoms emerges out of a spirit of experimentation. Conventions are discarded, producing a new vernacular.

Neel / Picasso at the Sara Kay Gallery

Sara Kay Gallery is pleased to present Neel / Picasso, on view through July 20. The exhibition features significant portraits from private collections by the artists Alice Neel (1900-1984) and Pablo Picasso (1881-1973).

Neel and Picasso were contemporaries who transformed and revitalized portraiture in the 20th century. For the first time, their works will be shown exclusively side-by-side. The exhibition explores the artists’ internal landscapes, the relationships with their subjects, and exemplifies the development of modern portraiture.  Through select paintings by both artists, this exhibition offers a revealing parallel view of two key 20th century painters.

Picasso said that his work acted as a “sort of a diary.” Neel claimed she was “a collector of souls…” capturing “what the world has done [to her sitters] and their retaliation.” Linked in time, differing in approach, the parallel viewing of these two innovative 20th century painters offers insights into both their artistic achievements and the radicalization of portraiture.

A needless life, it seemed to me

Until a little Bird

As to a Hospitality

Advanced and breakfasted.

This excerpt from Emily Dickinson’s deceptively charming poem “Our Little Kindsman After Rain,” suppositions that the bird—and its ecosystem—is actually a necessary part of God’s world and more important even than her own. Deceptively charming has also been used to describe the work of artists Francine Fleischer, Erica-Lynn Huberty and Lucy Winton.  The aesthetic and practical architecture of flight and nest-building, and the psychological architecture of the deep, dark woods, are themes universal to humans as well as birds, and they are themes that run deep in the work of Fleischer, Huberty and Winton.  “Until A Little Bird” brings together for the first time these three mid-career artists as they explore a common obsession each has held: that of the world of birds.

Suzanne Unrein, Slip at Sara Nightingale Gallery

Sara Nightingale Gallery is pleased to present,  opening Saturday, May 11th, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through June 3rd.

Suzanne Unrein grew up among swamps, alligators, mossy oaks and hundreds of varieties of birds in the coastal towns of Florida.  Her travels and encounters with animals in Mexico, South Africa, Borneo and Bali have contributed to her vibrant worlds where the animality of humans plays within a world of beasts. The drawings for Slip began at Unrein’s art residency in Can Serrat, El Bruc, Barcelona, Spain, in August of 2018 and have continued with her return to New York City.  In the drawings, Unrein moves away from the exuberant brushstrokes and vibrant color of the paintings. She calms down the motion and simplifies the palette to concentrate on the more psychological aspects of the work. Two large paintings inspired by the drawings will also be exhibited.
