In his work from “Little Infinities” Series – of which this series is a part – Jason Salavon’s continues pioneering a multi-decade use of data and algorithms in the creation of visual art. Throughout this time, his work has unearthed unseen pattern, habit, and structure within our culture and daily life. The works in this exhibition broaden this exploration, critically probing the proliferation of image data, the historical structures of narrative, and the creative potential of the current Artificial Intelligence revival.

Salavon_2019_Narrative Frame (Illuminated Manuscripts 5)_17x13_framed_cropped

In this series of suites of prints, real-time videos, and wallpapers, collectively titled “Narrative Frame”, Salavon addresses three primary historical structures used for the propagation of narrative: illuminated manuscripts, newspapers, and websites. Produced using self-authored neural network software, the works provide insight into the literal shapes and structure we’ve used to tell one another stories through time. In this particular piece from this body of work, we are focused on Salavon’s Illuminated Manuscript works.

Jason Salavon (born 1970, Indianapolis, IN) received a BA in Art and Computer Science from the University of Texas at Austin (1993) and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (1997). Salavon has exhibited his work extensively for the last twenty years, including recent solo exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, OH (2017), Mark Moore Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2016); the Haggerty Museum of Art, Milwaukee, WI (2016); TAI Modern, Santa Fe, NM (2016); and the Public Trust, Dallas, TX (2016). In collaboration with Microsoft Research, where he was a Visiting Artist in 2014, he exhibited at the Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA (2015). He has completed numerous large-scale commissions including for the Merchandise Mart, Chicago, IL (2018) and the United States Census Bureau, Washington, D.C. (2013).

Stefanelli A Season of Litanies Red for MMFA

Lisa Stefanelli: Post Millennial – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition Opening Today

Mark Moore Fine Art its pleased to announce an exclusive ARTSY online Exhibition of the new work by artist LISA STEFANELLI titled “The Post Millennial Series” comprised of three bodies of work from her “Crowd Pleaser”; “Forager”; and, “A Season of Litanies” digital compositions.

VIEW THIS EXHIBITION NOW AT THE FOLLOWING LINK: http://bit.ly/36fogpd

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)

Stefanelli Crowd Pleaser Series Oculus Grand for MMFA

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.

Zemer Peled and Dirk Staschke in “Cool Clay” at the Crocker Art Museum Reviewed

Zemer Peled utilizes a process of creation and destruction to make sculptures consisting of thousands of handcrafted porcelain shards resulting in works that can be read in relation to art historical tradition, outsider art, and natural phenomena.

The sculpture’s narrative impulses lean to encounters with the otherworldly—like complex topiaries marking a not-so-distant land–yet they remain distinctly tied to earth’s patterns. This conflation of the foreign and familiar creates a frenzied dislocation in the work. Inspired by migratory habits of birds, a sweep of feathers, and cycles of change, the works spiral outwardly in rhythmic patterns, interpreting not only the dynamism of nature, but also the startling strangeness of a life lived in transition.

Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, and engages with themes of memories, identity, and place. Her sculptures and installations consist of thousands of hand-crafted porcelain shards; a technique that yields a texture both delicate and severe. In some works, large scale-like ceramic pieces appear airy, delicate, and fluffy, as if one’s breath might break it. In others, Peled’s fragments are geometric barbs that mysteriously take on an alluring form – offering a sense of softness despite a sharp actuality. She has recently been featured in Hi-Fructose Magazine, Colossal, National Public Radio, MIND Magazine, O Magazine, and Ceramics Monthly (which featured her on the cover of the May 2015 issue).

Zemer Peled (b. 1983) was born and raised in a Kibbutz in the northern part of Israel. After completing her BFA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (Jerusalem), she earned her MA at the Royal College of Art (UK). In recent years, her work has been exhibited internationally, including such venues as Sotheby’s and Saatchi Gallery (London), Eretz Israel Museum (Tel Aviv), the Henry Moore Gallery at the Royal College of Art (London), and the Orangerie du Senate (Paris), among others. The artist currently lives and works at the Archie Bray Foundation Residency (Helena, MT). Additional information on this incredible artist can be found on our website at: www.markmoorefineart.com

Dirk Staschke is best known for his exploration of Dutch Vanitas still life themes in the medium of ceramics. His current body of work explores the space in between sculpture and painting. His work often uses meticulous representation as foil for examining skill and craft.

He received his BFA from the University of Montevallo followed by an MFA from Alfred University and has maintained an ongoing studio practice and extensive exhibition record for the last twenty years. During this time, he has taught at many notable universities, including Alfred University and New York University. His work has been shown internationally and resides in the permanent collections of several museums including the Smithsonian Museum in Washington (DC), Icheon Museum, World Ceramic Center (Gwango-dong) South Korea, Portland Art Museum (OR). He has received various artist’s grants including grants from The Virginia Groot Foundation and the Canada Council on the Arts.

Major Yoram Wolberger Sculpture Acquired By The McNay Art Museum

Wolberger_Bride_Groom_2001

Yoram Wolberger, Bride and Groom, 2001/ 3d digital scanning, cnc digital sculpting, polyester foam, and pigmented resin / 74 x 38 x 41 in / Collection of the McNay Art Museum

Mark Moore Fine Art is pleased to announce the McNay Art Museum’s acquisition of a major work by Yoram Wolberger, “Bride and Groom” from 2001 for it’s permanent collection.

The McNay Art Museum, founded in 1954 in San Antonio, is the first modern art museum in the U.S. State of Texas. The museum was created by Marion Koogler McNay’s original bequest of most of her fortune, her important art collection and her 24-room Spanish Colonial Revival-style mansion that sits on 23 acres (9.3 ha) that are landscaped with fountains, broad lawns and a Japanese-inspired garden and fishpond.

The museum focuses primarily on 19th- and 20th-century European and American art by such artists as Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Paul Gauguin, Henri Matisse, Georgia O’Keeffe, Diego Rivera, Mary Cassatt, and Edward Hopper. The collection today consists of over 20,000 objects and is one of the finest collections of Contemporary Art and Sculpture in the Southwestern United States. The museum also is home to the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts, which is one of the premiere collections of its kind in the U.S., and a research library with over 30,000 volumes. More recently, the McNay Art Museum recently added the Stieren Center, built by internationally renowned architect Jean-Paul Viguier, to display their Modern collection.
