LAST DAYS OF SUMMER
solo show with STEVEN MAXWELL
February 11th – March 22nd 2024
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTSY & KUNSTMATRIX
Worldwide


galerie bruno massa is pleased to introduce to an international audience MAXWELL STEVENS with LAST DAYS OF SUMMER a powerful collection of new oil paintings. Taking on the grand tradition of gestural abstraction inspired by the North Atlantic coast and especially along Long Island with de Kooning and Pollock, the artist superposes explosively energetic abstractions directly atop intimate beach scenes rendered with meticulous precision. Overpainted in jewel-like blues, aquas, and teal, they are a celebration of leisure, friendship, and family, as well as the mutually voyeuristic nature of public beaches where everyone is wilfully exposed.

Focusing on the populated shorelines and delving into a personal trove of beach photos taken over many summers spent at Long Beach, one of the most popular beaches near NYC and a summertime destination for many New Yorkers.

As an avid beachgoer, Maxwell Stevens spent his adolescence on the Atlantic coast. “Some of my most
memorable experiences have been at the beach, it’s a place of uninhibited leisure and of letting go of everything. At the same time, it is a place for reflection, a site for us to readjust through life’s journey. I want these paintings to convey that same positive effect on the viewer.” The artist’s visual language of sinuous contours and smears has given way to a burst of highly energetic expressions of scattered brushstrokes, sweeping gestures, drips, and plops of paint that fly across the paintings’ surfaces, immersing each scene into his own signature approach to abstraction. The looser and playful compositions skidding into and over the top of beachgoers, sunbathers, and surfers alike.In the large paintings filling the gallery, bright abstractions and figural compositions shift ceaselessly from image to image.

“Beach Scene, Siblings” presents a group of leisurely young sunbathers. The enticing position of the woman fixing her hair is counterbalanced with the innocence of her companions in the scene, as her sisters laugh and relax under their colorful beach umbrella. Hundreds of other beachgoers disappear onto the horizon. In “Beach Scene, In Repose” a young man sits in contemplation as friends chat under the hot sunlight. And in “Bikini Girl” the over-life-size figure turns powerfully away, her athletic physique and dominating scale displaying a sense of self-empowerment and grandeur balanced with classical beauty. In other works, figures, sand, and surf all dissolve entirely into luminous soft focus. In a final set of smaller panels entitled “Last Days of Summer” figures are seen at a distance conversing under stormy skies, as summertime draws to a close. There are many magical moments at play throughout the series, now on view.

LA ART SHOW
February 14th – February 18th 2024
Los Angeles (USA)

with SCOTT TROXEL

MODERN + CONTEMPORARY

The Most Comprehensive International Contemporary Art Show in America !

galerie bruno massa is delighted for its 5th participation to introduce the sculptor Scott Troxel with his series SMALL POPS at LA ART SHOW for a solo show in booth 1349 at Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.

From an early age, Scott has been obsessed with modern art, color and design. He is a painter, sculptor and wall sculptor. Recently, a majority of his work has been in the form of wood mixed media wall sculpture because of the three dimensionnel medium process he does. He is always exploring materials and processes. Sometimes he uses repurposed and found materials and other times he purchases materials new.

Scott Troxel predominately works with wood as my base medium, due to its strength, dimension and organic nature. The inherent texture of wood combined with paint and other man made materials allow me to explore the concepts of old and young, worn versus new, organic versus man-made and the past versus the present and future. He looks to capture a sense of time in my work and often combine the feeling of different eras within a single piece. He sees this as a direct parallel with human life, as we too grow older and interact with other generations, both younger and older.

He is also particularly interested in items that were considered technologically or aesthetically advanced, only to be passed on by the consistency and tenacity of time. For example, an airplane boneyard where cutting edge fighter jets from the 60’s sit in forgotten decay. They are still beautiful to look at from a design standpoint, even though these are no longer modern in the sense that time and technology has passed them by. He is particularly inspired by mid-century modernism, where wood and organic shapes were combined with other materials to suggest a type of futurism, though now they are considered vintage. Time has passed on but these pieces remain in that context of when they were designed. He wants his works feel this way, somewhat nostalgic, aged and organic with the feeling that it could also be from a future time.

PRISMATIC INTERPRETATIONS
solo show with SUMIT MEHNDIRATTA
December 14th 2023 – February 10th 2024
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTSY & KUNSTMATRIX
Worldwide


galerie bruno massa is thrilled to introduce to the worldwide audience some new artworks from Sumit Mehndiratta & his prominent series PRISMATIC INTERPRETATIONS.

The artist explores still life images, mostly with nature and plantation in his images while keeping in mind how he can invert them with his digital technique that he has experimented with over the years to manipulate hues of images that inspired him to take this journey.

His inspiration began through his fascination towards the colours found in plain sunlight. He uses the prism effect of sunlight as an analogy for seeing and interpreting things differently. The world being the plain sunlight and his process as a prism which results in manipulating these images washed in hues and colours of the rainbow. He captures the simplest, sometimes mundane images of landscapes/ and plants during travel or on a daily basis and edit them in patterns that best echo the way he wants to see them or bring it out. He manipulates images to bring out the extraordinary out of the ordinary which feels intuitive and personal to him.

Sumit Mehndiratta is an Indian artist born in 1986 who lives & works in New Delhi, India. He has pursued Master of Science in International Fashion Marketing from Manchester Metropolitan University in UK. The artist enjoys making artworks from different mediums that please the mind and soul of the individual. Sumit works aren't restricted to one style or medium of work. His works range from generic mediums such as canvas and paper to experimental mediums like digital art, mixed media and wall sculptures. Sumit claims to have been experimental since childhood. Be it drawing, sketching, painting or photography, he always liked to do something no one has ever thought of, by adding his signature element to the task. To achieve this, Sumit creates his own painting tools to go with the techniques he thinks of. He also believes in impulsive acts of making art and its surprising results.

TRAIT D'UNION
group show
April 22nd – June 21st 2023
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTSY & KUNSTMATRIX
Worldwide


curated by Arin Frut


with Pepe Hidalgo & Maxwell Stevens


TRAIT D'UNION draws a line between two very different universes from North America, one is based on Spanish culture & dissipated folklore inherited by PABLO PICASSO, Cubism or JUAN GRIS, the other one is more constructed and sophisticated with MAXWELL STEVENS's detailed oil, quasi-architectural, even for his abstracts.

PEPE HIDALGO is a Canadian artist with Spanish origins born in 1953 who lives and works in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. An important purpose in his work is that it can speak for itself. When we sit, look, and listen, we often find meaning and understanding in what is in front of us. Imagery, symbolism, color, texture, shape, and volume are used to express his thoughts and feelings. Many of his paintings narrate a story, experience, or thought he wants to share with the audience. Just as each individual has their interpretation of events, viewers have their own interpretation depending on their life experiences. Pepe's work is abstract and figurative narrative. For a painting to be narrative the artist needs to incorporate elements the viewer can identify, this allows them to participate in the narrative of the painting. The paintings are open so the viewer can penetrate the artwork and feel as if they are the creator themselves. This allows people to have different interpretations and give their own meaning to his painting. His objective is finally for people to have a personal and unique experience with his marvelous art.

MAXWELL STEVENS is an American artist born in 1971 who lives and works in New York, USA. He received an MFA in Painting from the School of Art at Washington University in Saint Louis in 1995, and a BFA in Painting from The Atlanta College of Art, now SCAD Atlanta in 1993. He is best known for his multi-layered paintings and drawings that overlay photorealistic images with vivid, energized abstractions. Shortly after moving to New York City, after many years of working exclusively in non-representational abstraction, Maxwell Stevens embarked on a significant stylistic shift in his approach to his art. He began composing his canvases with recognizable imagery, incorporating photorealist figures and lifelike scenes into his works, and then abruptly superposing these paintings directly with tumultuous abstractions. This new period is clearly identifiable by large abstract painted gestures superimposed directly on top of photorealist paintings that have become increasingly descriptive, with each series correlating the seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter, around a deeply personal and often autobiographical theme. In an essay entitled Maxwell Stevens: Thesis, Antithesis & Synthesis, NYArts Magazine observed “These vivid gestures of thick impasto grow invariably in an upwards motion as abrupt expressions that reach the viewer with immediate emotional charge and the space far beyond the canvas.” By dramatically increasing the surface tension of the canvases, from the chaotic clouds of brushstrokes that remain individually visible underneath, to the bowlike tension of a unified flat and hard mirror surface, the artist makes them most accessible to the viewer. Writing for Meer Magazine, Art Critic Alejandro Pardo described the paintings this way, “The surface you see becomes both the frontier that separates and the gate that opens and integrates the outer and inner spaces.” The possibilities with his newly invented approach has allowed him to introduce a wide variety of content and narrative situations into what at first glance often appears as a purely abstract picture, opening up to new subject matter while raising important questions about the very nature of representation, perception, and pattern recognition, constantly questioning and pushing the limits of painting as a form. Often working with everyday scenes drawn directly from life, the artist has said “I’m interested in the domestic arena as the primary site for our psychological and emotional experiences, and in how we exist differently, historically, within each passing moment. I try to use abstraction and the fragmentation of representational imagery to evoke this.” Exploring an array of subjects over the years, his pictures address many of the shared aspects of the human condition. Maxwell Stevens has exhibited extensively and internationally in contemporary venues from Tokyo to Dallas to New York, alongside major artists such as Cy Twombly, Joseph Beuys, and Dorothea Rockburne. His paintings and projects have been featured in numerous publications including Art in America, NY Arts Magazine, Meer Magazine, The Museum of Modern Art Contemporary Drawing and Print Associates Bulletin, Fine Art Connoisseur, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and Art Papers, among many others.

MICHAEL K. YAMAOKA
Singularities
April 12th – June 30th 2022
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTNET


In a career of many years in any creative field, themes emerge, flourish, peak, and subside; ideas resurface, burnished and enhanced by experience and the passage of time. And artists create with new tools that expand their vision and broaden their creative reach.

Singularities, in the original sense of the word, have always fascinated Michael Yamaoka, and he has trained his camera lens on them since his student days in California in the 60s. With an eye shaped by the aesthetics of his native Japan, Michael has sought the unusual and ‘singular’ all over the world, with an affinity for crumbling walls and ruins marred by years and weather. Early in his career he explored on film the beauty of the female form, and experimented with double and triple exposures to create composites with added context.

With the arrival of the digital age, Michael has returned to some of those earlier themes, and has been re-exploring with new technology the juxtaposition of the perfect human form with the ravaged settings and exotic backgrounds from his extensive travels to create a heightened narrative contrast. In other images, he has added elements to a simple background to suggest a story or a theme that paints a more complex or nuanced picture. In a sense, these new images composed of pixels can be also thought of as ‘singularities’ as defined by the concept of the Technological Singularity—the idea that there comes a point of such extraordinary growth in the sophistication of technology that there’s a transformation. As, indeed, there has been here…

Disparate elements brought together into images that tell stories that are more than the sum of their parts, comprise the ‘singular’ vision that Michael brings to the recent images in this collection of works. Yet the visual impact of certain of the earlier images, whose subjects are themselves simply extraordinary, remarkable, exceptional, or striking marks these, too as ‘singularities’.

As Michael states: “What I hope people take away from my images is a sense of the beauty of this world made poignant by transience, but I also hope they see harmony and gentleness. I want people to open their eyes to the sublime—it will change their outlook. That’s what I strive to capture with my camera and reflect in my work.”

Born in Japan in 1940 and educated at The Art Center College of Design in California, Michael K. Yamaoka honed his eye as an award-winning advertising and editorial photographer of the Fortune 500 before devoting himself to fine art. Traveling worldwide, he seeks majesty and beauty in both nature and man's creations, often incorporating a Goddess figure in a modern interpretation of mythology. In addition to exhibitions in Germany, Japan, the United States and Great Britain, he was honored in 2017 with a solo exhibition at the United Nations in New York. His work is included in corporate and private collections worldwide, including the personal collection of I.M. Pei. He is presently a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club in NY, where he has been honored with numerous awards for photography.

SCOTT TROXEL
Looking Forward through the Past
January 25th – March 31st 2022
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTNET


galerie bruno massa is thrilled for its first time to show recent artworks from Scott Troxel. He draws on the aesthetics of bygone technology and the forward-looking designs of the Atomic Age and mid-century modernism to make dynamic, retrofuturist wooden wall sculptures that evoke nostalgia for the past as much as they look to the future. Fascinated by the way pieces of technology, culture, and design reveal their age, Scott aims to make works that cannot be pinned to a specific era.

The artist is inspired by design and technology throughout the twentieth century, such as mid-century modernism, the Atomic Age, and art deco. He tends to expand upon Frank Stella’s famous quote “What you see is what you see.” While the viewer tends to bring his or her experiences to Scott’s work and “find” something familiar in it, his goal is to create art that features strong composition, balance, color, form and movement. His work relies heavily on these pillars. He then incorporates themes of aging, organic versus man-made, and new versus old in the sense of how we engage with technology, design, and aesthetics across generations. Specifically, he uses the example of midcentury modern design.

According to Scott “It has the rare ability to be timeless yet dated, modern but retro, organic and grounded but still futurist and otherworldly. I find this concept fascinating, and it is the foundation of what I try to achieve in my work. I want it to feel both modern and bold but perhaps from another era—when it was cutting edge, before time passed it by and changed the definition of “new or modern.” An example of his work that demonstrates this idea would be “Achtung VI.” The piece is bold, graphic and nods to both hard-edge abstraction and post-painterly abstraction. But it’s also modern and slightly distressed and grungy. The color palette was taken from a 1950’s book cover that has amazing design and color in the golden age of graphic design and color theory.

Scott’s works have been shown at The Other Art Fair, SCOPE Miami, Art Wynwood, Texas Contemporary, and SOFA Chicago. Scott’s work is in private and corporate collections worldwide including: The Shard Building-London, The Hotel Del Coronado, Westin Hotels, Wyndham Hotels, Embassy Suites, Hotels, Marriot Hotels Hilton Hotels, The View II at Temple University Purdue University, Four Seasons Hotel Group, Capitol One Corporate Headquarters, Price Waterhouse Cooper Headquarters in Manhattan, NY & The Hadle, Philadelphia, PA

The Most Comprehensive International Contemporary Art Show in America !

galerie bruno massa is thrilled to participate with Harry James Moody in a solo show (booth #200) for its fourth time to LA Art Show. The artist received his formal training as an artist at the Frankfurt Stadel Fine Art Academy, Frankfurt, Germany. He majored in Free Painting under the Professors Johannes Schreiter, Thomas Bayrle and Josef Beuys. In 1986, also at the Stadel Academy, he was introduced to the works and philosophies of the then residing Professor Gerhard Richter who eventually profoundly influenced the artistic direction that Moody was to embark on. His career in the arts includes Membership in CINOA, Appraiser, Conserver/Restorer, participant in numerous Art Fairs in Maastricht, Koln, Munchen, Frankfurt, author and art critic for Art-i-fact, freelance curator for the Bellevue Art Museum in Seattle, Ukai Museum in Tokyo and for privately owned collections, and was on the Board of Trustees at the Seattle Fine Art Academy. Throughout his professional life, Harry Moody has pursued a dialogue concerning art ideals and the necessity to express oneself artistically. He has exhibited at the Stadel Museum Frankfurt and the Landes Museum Wiesbaden.

Los Angeles has emerged as a global epicenter of art & culture, with a distinct, interwoven multi-cultural influence unique to the city. Diversity is our strength and art is most impactful when it includes or transcends all borders. As LA rises as the world-class destination for art, the LA Art Show continues to lead the way with innovative programming and one-of-a-kind experiences for an expanding collecting audience. LA Art Show is the unparalleled international art experience with over 80 galleries, museums, and non-profit arts organizations from around the world exhibiting painting, sculpture, works on paper, installation, photography, design, video and performance.

아시아 미술 시장의 허브를 꿈꾸며 출발한 “광주국제아트페어(아트:광주:19)”가 눈부신 성장과 발전을 거듭하여 올해로 열 번째를 맞게 되었습니다. 올해도 ‘김대중컨벤션센터’에서 4일 동안 열리는 ‘아트광주19’는 해외 18개 갤러리, 국내 73개 갤러리, 개인 작가 84명이 참여하는 국내 최대 규모의 국제 아트페어입니다. 이번 ‘제10회 광주국제아트페어’는 시민과 문화예술인들의 축제의 장이자 소통의 공간이 되어 지역적 한계를 극복하고 아시아 이웃 국가들과의 연대를 이룰 것입니다. 우리는 이를 통해 국제적 규모의 미술 시장을 활성화하고 시민들이 함께 만드는 미술축제로 거듭나기 위해 최선을 다할 것입니다. 새로운 미술 시장을 개척하고 미술계를 다양하게 확장시키고 있는 ‘광주국제아트페어’는 과거로부터 이어오는 전통과 예향 광주의 정체성, 그리고 각 지역민들과의 소통을 통해 광주만의 독창성과 경쟁력을 만들 수 있는 글로컬한 컨셉을 선보이고 있습니다. 광주는 문화적 상상력이 뛰어나고 각 예술 분야에서 창조적 인력이 풍부한 도시입니다. 우리는 광주가 이번 아트페어를 통해 세계적인 문화예술 도시로 한 단계 더 성장할 수 있도록 문화 산업의 무한한 잠재력을 키우는데 적극 노력하겠습니다. 또한 광주의 자긍심을 높이고 시민과 함께 즐기는 아트페어로서 지역 경제 발전에 기여하는 문화 현장으로 만들어 가고자 합니다. 더불어 이번 행사가 세계 미술 애호가들의 관심을 끌 수 있는 미술 행사로 관람객과 미술 애호가 및 예술 조직 간의 유기적인 참여를 이끌어 낼 수 있도록 하겠습니다. 광주의 뿌리 깊은 예술적 전통을 토대로 ‘광주국제아트페어’가 문화 산업 발전의 초석이 되어 국내뿐만 아니라 해외에서도 인정받는 미술 시장으로 도약해 지역 경제 활성화에 큰 영향을 미치는 미술 전람회가 되도록 온 힘을 기울이겠습니다. ‘아트:광주:19’를 주관한 ‘(사)한국예총 광주광역시연합회’는 지역 메세나 운동을 조직화하여 지역 경제의 핵심 동력이 되고 나아가 아시아문화중심도시로써 견인차 역할을 하도록 최선을 다할 것입니다. 이번 행사의 성공적인 개최를 위해 깊은 관심과 애정을 보내주신 광주광역시 이용섭 시장님과 국내외 갤러리와 작가들, 각 후원 기관, 미술 관계자 여러분께 감사의 말씀을 드립니다. 아름다운 도시 광주에서 열리는 ‘아트:광주:19’에 오시면 누구나 문화대중화 실현을 위한 새로운 가능성과 감동을 만나실 수 있을 것입니다. 감사합니다.

ART MOMENTS JAKARTA
June 1st – June 30th 2021
ONLINE VIEWING
Jakarta, Indonesia


with Wedad Alnasser, Karine Bartoli, Philip Hearsey, Kusbudiyanto, Liu Guoyi
& Benjamin Duke with CLAMOUR


​The organizers of Art Moments Jakarta are proud to announce the first Art Moments Jakarta Online (AMJO) through a virtual platform. Participated by over 50 exhibitors from Indonesia and International, from June 1 to June 30, Art Moments Jakarta Online can be accessed through AMJO. This is the first Hybrid Art Fair in Indonesia, accompanied by offline exhibitions at leading art galleries in Jakarta.

Art Moments Jakarta is a premium art fair owned by Indonesian art collectors and is managed by a team of experienced art fair organizers based in Jakarta and Singapore. The event is a platform for local and international art galleries to network, educate, exhibit, and engage. “During the pandemic, we were looking for avenues where our patrons and partners could still engage. Virtual platform is the answer to accommodate the gap, to bridge the gallery owners and art enthusiasts and actively promote Indonesian artists and their artworks,” said Leo Silitonga, Founder and Fair Director of Art Moments Jakarta.

Kicking off on May 20, 2021 at Art:1 in Kemayoran, Jakarta, Art Moments Jakarta Online will organize an intimate offline event, featuring permanent collections selected by professional curators, and an exhibition program focused on selected young artists. Art:1 prioritizes works of art that carry creativity, conceptual maturity, and high artistic value. Art:1 represents Yawara Oky Rahmawati and her work with the theme of stories about children's drawings and adult human memory. Yawara uses the appropriation method to borrow the work method and visual images of children to be reinterpreted by today's problems.

Among the leading art galleries participating in Art Moments Jakarta Online is Chan+Hori Contemporary, a Singaporean contemporary art curatorial specialist. Since March 2020, Chan+Hori has evolved into a curatorial, art management and art advisory service covering artists from around Asia. At Art Moments Jakarta Online, Chan+Hori Contemporary represents Jay Ho. The Singaporean artist works with abstract patterns inspired by the splendor of nature as opposed to human mortality. Jay Ho's artwork proposes an exploration of space, color, and light to communicate a desire to find answers to questions that can be answered through personal exploration within each of his audiences.

Lawangwangi Creative Space under ArtSociates, will feature works by the renowned Indonesian artist, Eddy Susanto. The Bandung-based creative space will display the works of Eddy Susanto, which are rooted in research on various historical elements which then display Javanese cultural identity. Inspired by various Javanese epics, Eddy Susanto explores historical narratives and the development of identity in his art.

Galeri Zen1, a Bali based contemporary art gallery will show a special presentation of important artworks that have never been shown to the public before from a Balinese contemporary Artist who just passed away, I Made Wianta.

Art Moments Jakarta will also be organizing Art Conversations discussing topics related to : Art and Mental Health, Art and Investment and also the recent actively discussed topic : Crypto Art.

With the support from Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, Bank BCA, Clamour Apps, Art Moments Jakarta Online strive to support the Art Industry and Community in regions particularly in Indonesia.

MICHAEL ALAN
Survival Things: Works of a Native New Yorker
February 12th – April 30th 2021
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTNET


In a time where America questions power and systems American artist, Michael Alan stands in the forefront, asking the questions that challenge, loudly and boldly, over and over. A painter for the people, he creates works that address racism, corruption, poverty, greed, and control. Michael Alan sees and paints the world his own way, with an alternative vision of the ongoing, overall human feeling. Alan, inspired by his surroundings, growing up and living in NYC, paints the fast paced menacing life of his city. A physically disabled son of an immigrant family, he has seen a lot, been through a lot, and puts it all into the work. The way he sees and interprets life is unlike other visions in art. The work defies a type or a group or a style. This work leads us into a new ocean that invites us all, looking to redefine who we are as Americans.

Alan works around the clock, creating a visual language and a modern day commentary, trying to understand the absurd world we live in. The artist is attracted to mediums that traditionally don't mix, but collide to create their own worlds. Using a broad range of tools, handmade brushes, his hands and fingers, split tips of pens, and repurposed drawings, he is constantly exploring mark making techniques to make odd lines and marks with obscure color combinations. His work is a mixture of high-end art on fire that is burned down to the ground, waiting for we the people to touch and grab.

He sees his visual works as puzzles that can be broken down and reconstructed by the eye. They are meant to be looked at, and reevaluated over time. Speaking on many popular and unpopular topics, he paints all sorts of people, places, and things, with a range of commentary in his work as a work within itself. He is known for street art activism, punk performance, standing for individuality, equality, positivity, freedom, wackiness and acceptance and questioning and challenging the systems that have all the power and control.

Alan is a strong believer in the constitutional right of freedom of speech, and his work portrays this. Alan is known for his masked performances around NYC, long before Covid-19 and the mask mandate. He created the performance art project The Living Installation. It is a staple icon of the city, which he runs with his wife and partner Jadda Cat. Together they stand for living in the moment, the power of the body as living sculptures, the power of being alive, appreciation of life, and comment on the absurdity we go through as humans. You can see in Michael’s paintings and drawings that he is inspired by the performances and costumes. The performances inform the drawings and drawings inform the performances. They are worlds inside worlds. Alan creates like an unbreakable renaissance artist working on a painting with a broken sewing machine, looking through a window filled with war.

PHILIP HEARSEY
Eternity
November 9th 2020 – January 29th 2021
ONLINE VIEWING with ARTNET


Philip Hearsey born in 1946 is an experienced British sculptor who has exhibited his work throughout the UK. He specializes in sand casting to make sculptures that engage the quality of bronze as a noble material in its own right. Casting in sand moulds is a simple and ancient method far removed from the sophisticated lost wax operation used by most art foundries. The sand casting process is relentless and unforgiving – the foundry is no place for a delicate original. It denies a complexity of form that imposes a disciplinary and enriching simplicity. Color is achieved in many ways. The most common and widely used method is to oxidize (patinate) the bronze by employing the same chemical reaction that occurs in nature, but using a combination of mild heat and stronger solutions to achieve a faster result. Patination can be enhanced by the application of a transparent colorwash that maintains the inimitable variegated effects that are possible with oxidization, whilst producing a more vivid finish. The most usual colorwash is acrylic, but oil-bound washes or colored waxes are sometimes used. Coloring can also be achieved by painting alone and often this technique is utilized on part of a sculpture in combination with patination. Painting allows a greater range of colors than patination alone. All coloring is finished and protected by a marine grade lacquer and/or wax.

Philip lives and works on the Welsh borders of Herefordshire – a beautiful place, still remote and largely unaltered, landlocked and very slow in change. This is in sharp contrast to the coast that he also loves, where everything changes twice a day with the rise and fall of each tide.

我试着不用过去的经验和艺术的喜好去看年轻画家的作品,说实话是不容易做到的,一来所建立起来的价值判断没有理由推翻,二来经验所证明的判断确有说服力,从这个角度看,我非常喜欢苏宇!是我非常得意的学生。
苏宇具有独立的思考和判断能力,艺术的思维敏锐具有韧性,在艺术的价值观上清晰明确,具有非常自我的构建意识,艺术的表达方式上尊重传统的精神和语言价值,在精神和情感的诉诸和表达上具有现实的批判性和温暖的悲悯感。他所有作品的灵感来自现实的世界,具有可信的情感基础,但又不是廉价和世侩的粉饰和图解现实。他尊重他自己感知到的现实,把这一切当做他艺术生成和表达的基础,不拔高,不曲解,不做作,以和生活的平行态度驾驭他自己艺术的基调,在平凡的生活中寻找艺术动人的基因,在世俗的世界里超越世侩,他仰望星空,却坚实的行走在现实的地面上。他从现实和内心出发,用他生命的信念,对绘画的热爱,不妥协的意志,勤勉不缀的艺术劳作,为自己赢得尊严!
看一个年轻艺术家的未来,首先看他艺术追求的目标,二看他艺术思辩和判断能力,三看他艺术价值观念的取向,四是看他持守和抗压的意志品格。当然最重要的是他必须有支撑起这些因素的才华做基础。在一个天才面前你只有叹气。看苏宇画画有两种生理反应:一是眼发直,二是手出汗。以他的学画经历算不得体面,他绘画基础除去不专业的基本教育外,来自少年对涂抹的热爱,少年的他把青春的荷尔蒙都发泄在对形与色的兴致和对大师作品的摹习追慕上,看他画画的本事和水准,我就不能用受教育的程度去衡量他绘画的水平了。都说勤能补拙,我相信。可我更相信天才是挡不住的!你看他行笔有形有趣,色彩沉稳辉煌。画面潇洒自如。最重要的是已经开始用他的才华讲自己的故事。没错!我说的就是你,有天份的苏宇。
此前曾赞苏宇天才。有一种人是勤能补拙,有一种人伸手唾得。他是二者合一,在青年时期有这种气象的有当年同窗的刘小东和赵半狄。多年后,我看到了另一个有类似才华的青年人苏宇也具不费吹灰之力便烟飞灰灭之能。陈丹青老师曾赞苏宇是大手笔。前两年拆迁现场写生,一气呵成,神情兼备,张驰有度,松紧有节。大散手、活赶趟,行笔憨畅、色彩张扬。已登堂入室,俨然有样。近几年随着他生活的不断的积累,艺术思考的维度和深度得到了极大的提升,作品的力度和对现实意义表现更加有力明确,作品内涵愈发深刻,内容涵盖生活的方方面面,绘画的语言能力在艺术思考和形成自我的驱使下自然的提升,呈现出勃勃生机,散发着生命的力量和孜孜以求的盎然活力。苏宇有信仰、有情怀、有理想、有担当,深知艺途中的陷阱和诱惑,面对一切他有勇气舍弃眼下的世俗利益。这在当下社会艺术生态里是一种积极的力量,是不可多得的活性因子。
艺术的问题首先是人的问题,哪里有生活,哪里就有问题,艺术家就是用自己的感知找到痛点,发现问题,提出问题,用自己最自然和独特的艺术本体语言,提供有视觉性和思想空间的艺术创造。从这个意义上来说苏宇是一个有未来的青年艺术家,符合当代具象的艺术理念,中国当代具象艺术中心非常乐于推出这样有未来的艺术家 ! 預祝展览能引起广泛的思考和 注!

In 2019, SIAF will stick to its “Art For Home” concept and art consuming direction, improving the quality both in exhibitors and the fair service. The fair will divide into four sections: Galleries, Art Crossover, Public Art and Theme Exhibitions. In Galleries, contemporary art and classic art will be two main parts, gathering domestic and oversea galleries, which showcase artworks with diversified international features and higher art value. In Art Crossover, Public Art and Theme Exhibitions, curators will be invited to each section, creating an independent and high-qualified outlook, yet make up and enrich the whole temperament of the fair. The cultivation of art consuming buyers, the invitation of collectors, and the cooperation of commercial brands will be the key points throughout 2019. SIAF established Asia Collection Club in 2015 and in 2018, our membership has grown to 100+ people and 500+followers. With the lead of two sponsors, Shenzhen Enterprise Confederation and Shenzhen Cultural and Creative Industry Association, there are more than 10 thousand entrepreneurs and cultural practitioners participating SIAF every year. What’s more, the SIAF committee has planned up to ten annual BAC (Be A Collector) activities to serve ACC members, sponsors and art fans. With the wide spread cooperation with art media and public broadcasting, we keep the high enthusiasm that will never end in 2019.

Into the Light by John K. Grande

A great contemplative, an artist who fuses light with colour, Fusako Ekuni has taken on the challenge of projecting our soul’s eternal perceptual connectivity to something very simple – light. Colours are treated with an instinct, the ritual inherent to Fusako Ekuni’s paintings involve the physics of the process itself. The slow process, the seeming point of emergence or disappearance these perpetual, eternal, changeable colour flows embody are less like paintings than beatific slow motion reifications of the physics of life…

These paintings are homages to the pre-verbal universe, where the invisible forces of life - colour and light – interact magically, seemingly invisibly. The artist is the medium. Like the Spanish Surrealist Juan Miro, Fusako Ekuni is producing several paintings simultaneously. At different stages of completion, each painting can take months until the colours complete their harmonic journey into completion. The artist is an eternal seeker.

For 18 years, Fusako Ekuni has moved from a traditional Japanese art style to explore a more fluid process that involves layering pure dry pigment and glue, placing these elements intuitively onto board to produce works that embody a feeling of slow flow… The colours relate as people do, one to the other, in a perpetual slow flow. A particular particularized, sub-atomic beingness associated with light is what results. This interest in the physics of light is ever present in Fusako Ekuni’s Into the Light series. Like James Turrell’s Roden Crater project in the Arizona Desert, the content in Fusako Ekuni’s art is ultimately this existential interaction between our eye’s perception and colour light compositions that always seem to be at a point of change.

Fusako’s sense of light and colours as elements in and for themselves an artist works with recall the American painter Richard Pousette-Dart’s painterly explorations. Art becomes a source where the ideas are simply phenomena, visual and colourful. Light is the binding medium the colours interact with. The sense of simple presence and absence, of feelings and emotions likewise recalls Mark Rothko’s contemplative colour compositions. One colour next to another colour, overlapping or meeting, becomes a topography of feelings, of placement… it is all in these words, Fusako Ekuni’s sense of immediacy, of the moment, of how colour is perceived before we read its forms – as colour - in light.

아시아 미술 시장의 허브를 꿈꾸며 출발한 “광주국제아트페어(아트:광주:19)”가 눈부신 성장과 발전을 거듭하여 올해로 열 번째를 맞게 되었습니다. 올해도 ‘김대중컨벤션센터’에서 4일 동안 열리는 ‘아트광주19’는 해외 18개 갤러리, 국내 73개 갤러리, 개인 작가 84명이 참여하는 국내 최대 규모의 국제 아트페어입니다. 이번 ‘제10회 광주국제아트페어’는 시민과 문화예술인들의 축제의 장이자 소통의 공간이 되어 지역적 한계를 극복하고 아시아 이웃 국가들과의 연대를 이룰 것입니다. 우리는 이를 통해 국제적 규모의 미술 시장을 활성화하고 시민들이 함께 만드는 미술축제로 거듭나기 위해 최선을 다할 것입니다. 새로운 미술 시장을 개척하고 미술계를 다양하게 확장시키고 있는 ‘광주국제아트페어’는 과거로부터 이어오는 전통과 예향 광주의 정체성, 그리고 각 지역민들과의 소통을 통해 광주만의 독창성과 경쟁력을 만들 수 있는 글로컬한 컨셉을 선보이고 있습니다. 광주는 문화적 상상력이 뛰어나고 각 예술 분야에서 창조적 인력이 풍부한 도시입니다. 우리는 광주가 이번 아트페어를 통해 세계적인 문화예술 도시로 한 단계 더 성장할 수 있도록 문화 산업의 무한한 잠재력을 키우는데 적극 노력하겠습니다. 또한 광주의 자긍심을 높이고 시민과 함께 즐기는 아트페어로서 지역 경제 발전에 기여하는 문화 현장으로 만들어 가고자 합니다. 더불어 이번 행사가 세계 미술 애호가들의 관심을 끌 수 있는 미술 행사로 관람객과 미술 애호가 및 예술 조직 간의 유기적인 참여를 이끌어 낼 수 있도록 하겠습니다. 광주의 뿌리 깊은 예술적 전통을 토대로 ‘광주국제아트페어’가 문화 산업 발전의 초석이 되어 국내뿐만 아니라 해외에서도 인정받는 미술 시장으로 도약해 지역 경제 활성화에 큰 영향을 미치는 미술 전람회가 되도록 온 힘을 기울이겠습니다. ‘아트:광주:19’를 주관한 ‘(사)한국예총 광주광역시연합회’는 지역 메세나 운동을 조직화하여 지역 경제의 핵심 동력이 되고 나아가 아시아문화중심도시로써 견인차 역할을 하도록 최선을 다할 것입니다. 이번 행사의 성공적인 개최를 위해 깊은 관심과 애정을 보내주신 광주광역시 이용섭 시장님과 국내외 갤러리와 작가들, 각 후원 기관, 미술 관계자 여러분께 감사의 말씀을 드립니다. 아름다운 도시 광주에서 열리는 ‘아트:광주:19’에 오시면 누구나 문화대중화 실현을 위한 새로운 가능성과 감동을 만나실 수 있을 것입니다. 감사합니다.

Музей искусства Санкт-Петербурга ХХ-ХХI веков (МИСП) – это хранилище уникальной коллекции, представляющей жемчужину изобразительного искусства города на Неве. Музей учрежден в январе 2016 года как филиал Центрального выставочного зала «Манеж», хотя свою художественную деятельность он ведет с момента основания коллекции. История ее начинается в 1990 году, когда постановлением Коллегии Главного управления культуры исполкома Ленсовета Центральному выставочному залу «Манеж» было поручено начать формирование фонда произведений ленинградских художников с целью создания в Санкт-Петербурге Музея современного искусства. В структуре ЦВЗ «Манеж» был образован отдел современного искусства, который с первого дня своего возникновения осуществлял серьезный комплекс задач по комплектованию, учету, хранению и публичному представлению предметов искусства.

with Delphine Lacroix, Marina Ho, Lee K., Olivier Lavorel, Ryohei Matsumoto, Harry James Moody & Shin Seung-Hun


(사)부산화랑협회가 주최•주관하는 BAMA(부산국제화랑아트페어)는 2012년 지역미술의 활성화 및 국내외 미술인 간 네트워크 확대를 목표하며 첫 발걸음을 내딛었습니다. 이후 세미나, 아트투어, 아트페어 등 다양한 사업들을 통하여 시민과 예술이 함께 소통할 수 있는 기회를 만들기 위해 노력하고 있습니다. BAMA는 국내외 화랑들이 한 장소에 모여 대중과 소통하는 아트페어로, 2018BAMA에는 100여 개의 국내외 화랑들이 참가하여 동시대 미술의 다양한 모습들을 선보일 예정입니다. 본전시와 함께 부산만의 에너지가 녹아 있는 특별전들을 통해 참여화랑, 작가, 관람객, 컬렉터들에게는 작품 정보교환의 기회를 제공하고, 작가소개 및 작품판매를 통해 현대미술 시장에서 아트페어가 갖는 본질적인 역할에 집중하고자 합니다. 지난 2018BAMA는 국내미술시장의 침체된 분위기에도 불구하고 전년 대비 40% 증가한 3만5천여 명의 관람객과 60% 성장한 50억원의 매출을 기록하며 역대 최고의 성과를 거두었으며, 국내미술시장의 새로운 가능성을 열었다는 평가를 받았습니다. 2019BAMA는 최근 국내 미술시장의 흐름을 확인하며 함께 성장하는 방향을 모색하는 장이 될 것입니다.

BAMA, organized and hosted by The Galleries Association of Busan, was launched in 2012 to promote local art and expand network of artists at home and abroad. Since then, BAMA has strived to provide more chances to citizens to learn and enjoy more about art through seminars as well as a variety of programs of art tour, art fair and so on. BAMA is an international art fair where not only galleries but artists from home and abroad come together and engage more closely with the general public. This year, around 100 domestic and foreign art galleries will participate and display various aspects and beauty of contemporary art. BAMA strives to focus on the essential role of art fair in the contemporary art market through introducing artists and selling works. To this end, it organizes a variety of special and satellite exhibitions, which display unique energy and vitality of Busan. Those exhibitions will provide opportunities for participating galleries, artists, collectors, and visitors to exchange information on artworks. Last year, 2018 BAMA achieved remarkable success in its history, despite depressed atmosphere of the domestic art market. It attracted more than 35,000 visitors, increase of 40% and recorded 5 billion Korean won in sales, up 60% compared with the previous year. BAMA received high praise that it opened up new possibilities for the domestic art market. 2019 BAMA will be a venue to explore current trends in the domestic art market and to find ways to grow together.

with special guest Greta Chapin McGill


Notre exposition s’affirme avant tout comme un assemblage singulier d’artistes, dans un lieu demeurant assez inclassable ; l’idée qui les réunit pose la question de notre relation à l’espace, compris au sens large : celui avec lequel nous pensons et celui que nous habitons. Les pratiques de nos artistes, diverses dans les formes qu’elles mettent en jeu, peuvent donc se rejoindre à l’endroit ou la question de l’espace rencontre celle de l’imaginaire. Croyances, fantasmes, artifices, existence, fiction : chez la plupart, le constat de la modification de notre relation « naturelle » aux lieux que nous fréquentons, et la perte d’une certaine idée du réel s’affirme paradoxalement dans la recherche d’une présence, d’une matière, ou du sentiment du vivant.

Los Angeles has emerged as a global epicenter of art & culture, with a distinct, interwoven multi-cultural influence unique to the city. Diversity is our strength and art is most impactful when it includes or transcends all borders. As LA rises as the world-class destination for art, the LA Art Show continues to lead the way with innovative programming and one-of-a-kind experiences for an expanding collecting audience.






ARTIST'S APPROACH:

In his latest series, Gilles Teboul continues to keep a distance from the painter’s gesture. In his previous series, he proceeded by retreat, by subtraction, by what he called the « non gesture », erasing part of the matter which covered his canvases and thus causing the undercoat of paint to rise to the surface.

With his recent paintings, he goes as far as abolishing any gestural implication of the artist in the production. The paintings are placed flat on shims in equilibrium. Teboul lets the paint pour onto and spread out over the canvas without intervening in its movement.

Thus, the creator’s role in the fabrication is extremely limited and the work assumes its definitive form in the very instant of its conception. The artist is, indeed, dispossessed of his actions and is kept at a distance from his realizations. In other words, the physical act of painting yields to a procedure where the color, in the purest ‘acheiropoïetic’ tradition, distributes itself onto the canvas. This Greek term means "not made by the hand of man, miraculously".

It is a miracle, because usually, any work is an artefact whose genesis can be studied through the various intermediate stages, the sketches, the preparatory drawings, from a large body of actions, stroke by stroke, which designate it as the work of a human creator.

Here however, it is only when the opaque acrylic binder used by Teboul is definitively fixed that the image appears and reveals itself, without unveiling the secrets of its production.
Monochromes ? Only in appearance, because the eye, captivated, discovers all the richness of the tones which vibrate uder its surfaces. Translucid, the paintings function like an aquatic mirror in which the spectator sees his own image.

Let us be assured, Teboul is neither a magician nor a mystic.

At the same time, for over 15 years, he has developed a photographic series in reference to painting.

He questions the « institutional » discourse which has often announced the theoretical death of painting. By photographing his worn and dried painting material, the bottoms of pots, canvases, crusts, opercula, palettes, etc... accumulated and archived, he recycles them and gives them a new life.

Artist and writer from Washington DC, Educated at Howard University and the Corcoran School of Art…Color is my passion, I want to see and be influenced by every thing from cave paintings to Picasso…I love Jazz and I Paint Jazz Musicians from a love of the music….


We Can Control Space s’affirme avant tout comme un assemblage singulier d’artistes, dans un lieu demeurant assez inclassable ; l’idée qui les réunit pose la question de notre relation à l’espace, compris au sens large : celui avec lequel nous pensons et celui que nous habitons.
Les pratiques de nos artistes, diverses dans les formes qu’elles mettent en jeu, peuvent donc se rejoindre à l’endroit ou la question de l’espace rencontre celle de l’imaginaire. Croyances, fantasmes, artifices, existence, fiction : chez la plupart, le constat de la modification de notre relation « naturelle » aux lieux que nous fréquentons, et la perte d’une certaine idée du réel s’affirme paradoxalement dans la recherche d’une présence, d’une matière, ou du sentiment du vivant.

VOLTA, Basel's art fair for new international positions, debuted in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA's inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair.

VOCA賞受賞者 幸田千依さんのコメント
このような賞を頂き、予想を超えてこれまで様々な土地で出会った皆様の喜びの声を聴くことができ、大変驚くとともに心から嬉しく思っています。
かれこれ7年ほど、絵を描くことと様々な土地で暮らすことの両方を一つの歯車のように行ってきましたが、そこには常にズレがあり、そのズレを次へ次へ進みながら新しく調整をしてきました。
その中で徐々に浮かび上がってきたことはやはり、自分のもつこの眼の存在をなしにして、ものを感じたり考えたりすることはできず、自らが今立っている足場の感触とそこから見えているものを起点にその裏側や対極や真下をも見ていこうという、至ってシンプルな強い自覚でした。その自覚により、私の中から緊張した謎の観念(なぜか思い込んでいたこと)のようなものは徐々に消え、あるのは実感される相対関係との調和です。黄昏の光が街に広がって自分の顔に跳ね返ってくる、その熱を受ける眼と皮膚と足場を意識しながら、誰が見てもただ「絵」となって照り返すような作品を今はもっと描きたい。誰もが自分の持つ感覚で確かめることのできる、確かなものとしての絵を描きたいです。
この数年加速度を増してかみ合ってきた制作と暮らし、眼と手、によって今回の作品を描くことができ自分にとってもひとつの節目となりそうです。
これからも、時間をかけてノビノビとやっていきたいです。

THE SIDEWAYS - BENJAMIN DUKE

In partnership with ATLANTIC GALLERY

547 West 27th Street, suite #540
February 27th – March 6th 2017
New York City (USA)


Benjamin Duke's current area of research is in painting, He is primarily interested in creating narratives that are disjunctive, which means that his works utilize seemingly opposite or disjoined elements. His main strategy for this is to create moments of fissure in a painting.

How much monster, Duke’s Paintings ask us, are we willing to feel in ourselves, to accept, to affirm? What are the limits to which our egos restrict us, and what attractions and sensations liberate us from the cage of self? What aspirations and endeavors, Ben Duke’s paintings keep asking, lead beyond all compromises and reveal to us, finally what a body can think and do and feel.

From Brian Kubarycz’s introductory essay to: Benjamin Duke 2001-2010: Ten years of Work with essays by Brian Kubarycz, and Su YuAnn, published by Garden City Publishing. Duke received his MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Hoffberger School of Painting in 2006. He has been teaching at Michigan State University since 2006 and has had numerous Solo, and Group shows at the national and international level including exhibitions at Ann Nathan Gallery in Chicago, the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, “Weak Painting Group,” exhibitions at The Kuandu Museum of Fine Art in Taipei and Da Xiang Art Space in Taichung City, Taiwan. Duke has also been awarded international residencies at Bamboo Curtain Studios, The Kuandu Museum of Fine Art at Taipei National University of the Arts, and the Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program in Brittany. Duke says:

In my paintings I ask myself “Is this the way the world is?’ I reshape and retool my painting experience to answer that question. But while the question begins with the world, it ends with the work itself: “Is this the way the world is in this work?”
The search is for the world in painting and painting in the world (painting worlds/ paintings world). Am I in the world or is the world in me? I allude to my life, to writers works, to imagery and it is my hope that this record of allusion conjures and creates the same. I am referring to text, theory, idea but I am also finding myself already there, looking out to see in.
