Lisa Stefanelli Featured In FLORA: THE IMPERMANENCE OF BEAUTY

Lisa Stefanelli is an artist living and working in New York City and Easton, Pennsylvania. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and received her degree in 1989. She has been a practicing artist for the last three decades.

“The underlying pursuit of my studio practice is to examine the possibility of being simultaneously involved and uninvolved in the complexity of all of our relationships, both animate and inanimate. Elements of the environments we inhabit—signage, sound/music, advertising, and popular culture (basically the cultural clutter of our lives)—are primary in informing the paths and trajectories of the works’ visual language. The work is elaborate and complicated while concurrently yearning to avoid the entanglements it embodies. And yet there is a joy in the confusion we live in. My practice chases that joy.”

-Lisa Stefanelli (2019)

Most recent solo exhibitions include Robischon Gallery, Denver, Colorado, Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia, Penn, Pierogi Gallery, NYC, Robischon Gallery, and Mark Moore Gallery, Los Angeles, California.

She has work in the collections of the United States Department of State, Washington DC, The West Collection, Oaks, PA, The Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, MA, The Mondstudio Collection at the Kunstmuseum, Berne, Switzerland, The Albright Knox Gallery, Buffalo, NY and The Wynn Collection, Las Vegas, NV.

LOOK TO THE SKIES: An Exclusive ARTSY Exhibition

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an Exclusive ARTSY Online Group Exhibition titled LOOK TO THE SKIES featuring artists Lita Albuquerque; Josh Azzarella; Mark Bennett; Dennis Ekstedt; Penelope Umbrico; Cassandra C. Jones; and Lisa Stefanelli.

Painting the sky, the stars, and the planets is a skill as old as time itself. Long before we as a species knew anything about the universe and our place within it, artists were looking upwards to the skies for inspiration. Artists like Van Gogh, Durer, Trouvelot, and Rudaux, all created art inspired by outer space over the centuries.

Our collective fascination with the skies have inspired artists, astronomers, and visionaries dating as far back as 16,500 B.C., when the earliest representations of constellations appeared in cave paintings in Lascaux, France and Cueva del Castillo, Spain. The book is notable for its use of juxtaposition; rather than being organized chronologically or thematically, LOOK TO THE SKIES presents disparate works side-by-side, highlighting fluctuations in humanity’s understanding of space across vast lengths of time.

Throughout history, artists have contemplated and reflected on the human condition. And what greater human condition is there than our position on this singular planet amidst an ever-expanding celestial unknown? We’ve highlighted seven contemporary artists featured in LOOK TO THE SKIES who’ve grappled with the subject; evaluating humanity’s intimate relationship with the cosmos in thought-provoking visual and sculptural renderings.

LOOK TO THE SKIES features the work of Lita Albuquerque; Josh Azzarella; Mark Bennett; Dennis Ekstedt; Penelope Umbrico; Cassandra C. Jones; and Lisa Stefanelli who each, in their own way, explore their own obsession and attraction to the magic of the last frontier.

Ending Sunday: BETH LIPMAN Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition by artist BETH LIPMAN featuring selections available for the first time from her recent exhibition at the Wichita Art Museum, “All in Time”, a mid-career retrospective of the artist featuring her work from the mid-2000s through today.

VIEW THIS SHOW NOW AT: https://bit.ly/3UY3VOG

Beth Lipman is an American artist whose sculptural practice explores aspects of material culture and deep time through still lives, site-specific installations, and photographs. Ephemeral and intricate, the work addresses mortality, materiality, and temporality. Lipman is also known for site responsive installations that activate the specific history of objects, individuals, and institutions. ReGift, a site-specific installation investigating Florence Scott Libbey, will be on view at the Toledo Museum of Art in the summer of 2023.

The work generates from the “Still Life” genre, symbolizing the splendor and excess of the Anthropocene and the stratigraphic layer humanity will leave on earth. Assemblages of inanimate objects and domestic interiors, inspired by private spaces and public collections, propose portraits of individuals, institutions, and societies. The collision of sacred and profane artifacts with aspects of the natural world focuses attention on the evolving set of beliefs stemming from the narrative power of objects. Referencing both tangible and digital archives further unravel socially constructed hierarchies as the installations invite the viewers to step into uncanny webs of association.

She has received numerous awards including a USA Berman Bloch Fellowship, Pollock Krasner Grant, Virginia Groot Foundation Grant, and a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant. Recent works include Living History, a large-scale site-specific sculpture that explores the dual concepts of deep maps and deep time and Belonging(s) a sculptural response to the life of Abigail Levy Franks for the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (AR)

Lipman has exhibited her work internationally at such institutions as the Ringling Museum of Art (FL), ICA/MECA (ME), RISD Museum (RI), Milwaukee Art Museum (WI), Gustavsbergs Konsthall (Sweden) and the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum (DC). Her work has been acquired by numerous museums including the North Carolina Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art (NY), Kemper Museum for Contemporary Art (MO), Smithsonian American Art Museum (DC), Jewish Museum (NY), Norton Museum of Art, (FL), and the Corning Museum of Glass (NY).

ARTSY Featured Show of the Week: VERNON FISHER “Prints and Drawings” – An Exclusive Online Exhibition

VERNON FISHER: PRINTS AND DRAWINGS – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

On View Through January 22, 2023

Vernon Fisher is an American artist working in a wide range of media, best known for his skillful combinations and juxtapositions of image and language. In this exclusive ARTSY online exhibition we present seven important works from the artist’s personal collection available now.

“Anything that is resolved is either delusional or dishonest. We live far more arbitrary and capricious lives than we’re ready to admit. I think if we admitted it, we’d be scared all the time. Nothing in life is ever truly neat.” – Vernon Fisher

The mid-1970s was the period when Vernon Fisher started his artistic career, in the era marked by the legacies of Pop and Conceptual art. This mixture of styles created a unique fusion between painting and installation, in that way shaping new inspiring compositions derived from juxtapositions of language and imagery. Influenced by this period in contemporary art, but also by artists such as Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari, Fisher began creating his multilayered visual narratives. Resulting works – paintings, installations and collages – represent Vernon Fisher’s view on pop culture and contemporary society, enriched with art-historical and literary references. Often contextualized within a postmodernism, his works shares an influential practice of self-appraisal with Cy Twombly and Robert Rauschenberg.

Vernon Fisher was born in 1943 in Fort Worth, Texas. He studied English literature at the Hardin-Simmons University, where he received a BA in 1967. Vernon got his MFA in 1969, from the University of Illinois. As a true Fort Worth child, Fisher was raised and is still living in his hometown, where he enjoys appreciation as one of the Texas’s most internationally recognized artists.

The art of Vernon Fisher is included in the collections of more than 40 museums across the globe, such as the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C., Art Institute of Chicago, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Phoenix Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The most important museum installation is in the collection of the famous Museum of Modern Art in New York.

ENDING SOON: Mark Moore Fine Art Presents BEN WEINER titled “Colors Of You” – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

PREVIEWED: Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition of new work by artist BEN WEINER titled “Colors Of You” on view now through February 5, 2023.

VIEW THIS SHOW NOW AT: https://bit.ly/3sqflxq

Weiner’s large-scale paintings combine elements of process-abstraction and still life painting to create a material history of his own existence.

By photographing paint and luxurious ephemera at close range, then using the resulting image as his subject, Ben Weiner creates works that pose a confusion of object, subject and medium. Weiner’s paintings harness the idolatrous fetishistic desire of consumer culture, the fashion industry, and the art world. Thus, his paintings self-critically describe the duality of their own identity as both transcendent creation and commercial item. Likewise, all of the themes and references in the paintings reinforce their status as consumer/art objects. Roland Bathes’ application of Freud’s concept of “the uncanny” to landscape photography is the pertinent reference.

Art Critic David Shapiro writes of the work: “Meditating on the rapturous designs of the ephemera of our time, Ben Weiner transforms prosaic objects such as aluminum foil, paint, and hair gel into ambiguous, often erotic landscapes of the mind. Weiner’s images are enlarged to the point of near unrecognizability, making the paintings hover on the brink of extreme representation and abstract sublimity. The altered scale combined with dramatic lighting and subtle photographic distortions produces an uncanny effect characteristic of the digital age.”

“Weiner’s large paintings are technically flawless and strikingly realistic, living up to still life’s reputation for naturalistic realism set by Parrhasios in ancient Greece. His involvement in the genre of still life is, however, not based merely in its ability as an effective vehicle for delivering realism but also for the power of objects to communicate metaphorically. In Weiner’s visions, styrofoam can be the ruins of commodity culture, while gold covered mannequins conjure fantasy narratives of transcendence through the decadence of love. The abstract method of communication inherent in still life painting reflects Weiner’s strongly felt belief in the power of implication.”

“While Weiner’s paintings are contemporary, particularly in his interest in the experience of visual disorientation, his techniques reflect an interest in preserving the most effective and archival artistic methods of the Old Masters. He uses Dutch paint and clove oil over Belgian linen to ensure images of great permanence. But, just as Weiner updates the ancient art of still life with photographic distortion, he also adds to his nearly scientifically-mixed palettes a number of prismatic synthetic hues.”

Ben Weiner (b. 1980, Burlington, VT) received his BA from Wesleyan University (CT). He also studied under Mexican muralist José Lazcarro at Universidad de las Americas (Mexico) and has worked closely with artists Jeff Koons, Kim Sooja and Amy Yoes as an assistant. He has exhibited his work widely across the United States and in Mexico with solo shows in Los Angeles, New York and Puebla, and group exhibitions in Chicago, New York, Miami, New Haven, Ridgefield, Los Angeles and Riverside. His paintings can be found in the Sammlung/Collection (Germany), the Progressive Collection (OH), and the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation Collection (CA). The artist lives and works in New York City.

EXTENDED: Amy Myers “Ultraviolet Underground”- An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition On View Now Through March 31, 2023

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition by artist AMY MYERS titled “Ultraviolet Underground”.

VIEW THIS SHOW AT: https://bit.ly/3EMd4Ec

Amy Myers is best known for her large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings, which depict complicated worlds reminiscent of scientific patterns. Her father was a physicist, a fact often noted as an influence on the aesthetics and structure of her work.

Myers’ compositions, always balanced but never exactly symmetrical, seamlessly integrate layers of matter radiating from a central, often labial core. Some elements are comprised of soft, biomorphic forms, at times fleshy and pulsating, at other times wispy and iridescent. Other structures appear as webs of severe, geometric forms slicing through the multi-layered composition, reminiscent of cyborgian hybrids, industrial machinery, and the bio-mechanical art of H. R. Giger. Many elements of Myers’ works are reminiscent of human organs, particularly the vulva, a symbol of creation that relates to the cyclical recreation and renewal inherent to the mechanics of the universe. Myers’ art has clear ties to Feminist art, with notable visual similarities to Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings of flowers, buildings, and landscapes, and Judy Chicago’s series of vulvic plates for “The Dinner Party.”

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Amy Myers (b. 1965, Austin, TX) is a New York-based artist whose large-scale abstract drawings and paintings simultaneously reference particle physics, biology, philosophy, the human mind, and the mechanics of the universe.

Myers has received numerous grants and fellowships, including The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant; Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts; Ellen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation Studio Residency and Award at MANA Contemporary; and The Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Studio Grant.
