While the gallery remains closed due to the NY Pause Act, we are pleased to announce weekly online exhibitions. We hope these presentations will help us to stay connected with our clients and the arts community as a whole.
Our first presentation is VIRTUAL SPRING. During this time of anxiety, isolation and hardship, it may help to remember that the seasons continue to change. Spring is here. The trees and flowers are blooming, the birds are nesting, the days lengthening and the reminders of renewal and rebirth are all around us. Somehow, the world continues to turn.
In VIRTUAL SPRING, we feature the work of Elise Ansel, Andy Harper and Nate Ethier.
Elise Ansel’s work references historical masterpieces, transforming their visual language into a fresh iteration of Abstract Expressionist sensibility. In the four works on display, she is drawing from the floral still life paintings of Rachel Ruysch (1664-1750).
Andy Harper’s paintings from his Sol series are titled after the months of the International Fixed Calendar, a calculus in which each month amounts to 28 days, and includes the additional month, Sol, at mid-summer. The works follow the natural progression from January to December, the character shifting from month to month – light to dark, warm to cold, lush to spare.
Drawing on traditions of formal and pop abstraction, Nate Ethier’s flamboyant geometric abstractions celebrate both the bucolic and the post-industrial world. The exchange of interchangeable modular structures through synchronicity and symmetry is the bedrock of the work, while rock and roll, the rolling surf, and poetry whisper in the background.
