LAYERED AND ON EDGE: Cut Paper Artwork by Lauren Schwartz, curated by Kristin J. DeAngelis.

Kristin J. DeAngelis is pleased to share that she is the curator for LAYERED AND ON EDGE: Cut Paper Artwork by Lauren Schwartz, presented by SILVERMAN and The Hamilton Square Condominiums Association. The exhibition is on going through August 31st.

Lauren’s work aims to take the tools of childhood – paper, scissors, glue – and the shapes of childhood – lines, scribbles, blocks – and create vibrant, three-dimensional artwork. Her compositions are often patterns of light and dark, shape and form, color and contrast that intrigue her, and working in paper allows her to explore those visual components without regard to the accuracy of representing a specific subject or object.

“Reckless in the Lab” by Mary Didoardo at Kathryn Markel Fine Art

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Mary Didoardo – Reckless in the Lab.

In this most recent body of work, Didoardo continues her exploration of dynamic line and color. Scrutiny of her paintings reveals the marks of fracture and surfaces worked. She begins her paintings by adding layer upon layer of paint to wood panels. The surface is then covered in tape, upon which Didoardo draws her signature expressive lines. In contrast to the freedom of this gesture, she then painstakingly cuts along these markings with an exacto-knife, and applies yet another layer of paint to the revealed surface. Finally, she removes the remaining packaging tape, which causes flakes of paint to peel off and reveal hidden colors. This process of building and revealing is captured in layers of paint and looping, swirling compositions. The manic dance of line across the canvas is chaos made visible, reaching sudden resolution. In their gestural eloquence, the paintings are simultaneously serious and celebratory. Read more

Garvey|Simon, in collaboration with McKenzie Fine Art, is pleased to present Ann Aspinwall: Spirit of Place, an exhibition of the artist’s recent work in silkscreen, etching, linocut, and collagraph. Limiting herself to the minimal elements of undulating parallel lines and a few carefully selected colors, Aspinwall creates luminous expanses that are suggestive of landscape, water, and sky. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with Garvey|Simon.  The show runs through July 13th 2019. Read more
