Come Closer and the View Gets Wider” is a monument to collective consciousness and an invitation for viewers to look, touch, feel, and perhaps shift perspectives. The sculpture is composed of thousands of bone-like ceramic pieces, each hand-made and uniquely glazed. From a distance, the large textured globe evokes unity and delicacy. Up close, the sculpture mimics the sensation of peeking through a hole in a wall and catching a glimpse of an intimate moment.

REBECCA MANSON’s work stretches the limits of ceramics, challenging preconceived notions regarding fragility. “My work uses ceramics as a metaphor for the individual and societal body,” says Manson. “This sculpture was informed by the process of working with clay, a nature that wants to collapse. For me, ceramics is tied to personal resilience and rebuilding in the face of adversity.”

Joseph Rossano “School” at The Bellevue Arts Museum Is Breathtaking!

20190411-School (12)

School

The Joseph Rossano Salmon Project

School, an exhibition spearheaded and conceptualized by artist Joseph Rossano, casts light on the diminished state of global salmon and steelhead populations. The installation features a life-size school of mirrored salmon, sculpted from molten glass by concerned glassmakers from around the world. Participating makers send their contributions to a central location where the glass fish are silvered by Joseph Rossano and then sent to join the exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum.

Rossano’s project is inspired by the Skagit River, the fourth largest outflow to the Pacific Ocean in the continental United States, and its dwindling run of salmon and steelhead. Once numbering in the millions, the Skagit’s salmon stocks now number barely in the tens of thousands. Whereas the river’s steelhead population, which historically numbered in the tens of thousands, now numbers only in the hundreds. Because the steelhead return to the Skagit in the late winter when cupboards were bare, they once served as an important food supply to indigenous peoples. The stories of the region’s people and their use of its land over thousands of years offers captivating and actionable insights that Rossano hopes will bring disparate groups together for the benefit of these fish and those dependent on them.

20190411-School (15)

To kick off the project, the Museum of Glass will host a makers event on October 12, 13, and 14. During that long weekend, the MOG team will work with Rossano and a range of other glass artists to create fish for the exhibition. Trout Unlimited, an organization dedicated to the preservation and restoration of wild fish populations will co-host the event, making it a celebration of the fish with refreshments, films and talks from scientists, indigenous peoples, and sportsman.

Must See: Allison Schulnik in SAN DIEGO SURREAL at the Oceanside Museum of Art

IMG_6510.125723

Allison Schulnik, Centaurette, 2017; cast bronze on unique stone base; Unique work from a series of eight 29″ H x 8″ x 20″ overall (19″ H  x 20″ x 5″ bronze, attached to base 10″ H x 13″ x 8″)

San Diego Surreal reveals the ways in which Surrealism’s range of artistic strategies and visual vocabulary have seeped into our culture while probing the impact the movement has had on artists in San Diego County. Featuring over 50 works of art in a variety of media created over several decades, the exhibition focuses on the work of contemporary artists including Hugo Crosthwaite, Marianela de la Hoz, Einar and Jamex de la Torre, Charles Glaubitz, Jeff Irwin, Cliff McReynolds, Lynn Schuette, Allison Schulnik, Walter Sutin, Jen Trute, and Perry Vasquez, and also includes earlier 20th-century Modernists who drew upon Surrealism such as Dorr Bothwell, Ethel Greene, Harry Sternberg, and Jean Swiggett. Organized by guest curator Susan M. Anderson, San Diego Surreal goes beyond making overt comparisons between the work of the historical Surrealists and these artists, to explore broader more idiosyncratic connections.

Expanding on her language that traditionally highlights misfits, outcasts, and the misunderstood – Schulnik introduces a wild new cast of mythological creatures replete with centaurettes, unicorns, and otherworldly outsiders in various stages of liberation. Continuing her exploration of selfhood through diverse and rich allegories, her new subjects radiate gracefulness that is both vulnerable and stoic—a type of synthesis that is a hallmark in Schulnik’s work.

IMG_6767

Not contented by cut and dry narratives that portray notions of empowerment, her characters are complex. Delving into the intricate web of sexuality, Schulnik takes a Henry Darger approach to Disney’s “Fantasia”- with centaurettes reimagining strength and femininity, as well as humanity. In order to create an honest portrait of contemporary liberation, she provides her mythic beings with fear, angst, sadness, and even weakness. Glorious unicorns of questionable gender are imbued with an aura of disheveled majesty — and a new type of hero emerges. Each protagonist is granted their individual physicality, strength, baggage, and personhood – as they also reflect the bewildering concepts of ego and identity. As fictional as these creatures may be, their personification of the untamed make us long for the best, unapologetic versions of our true selves.

Daniel Canogar “The Amalgama Series Multiples” – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

Goya

Mark Moore Fine Art is proud to present the first exhibition of “The Amalgama Series Multiples” by New Media artist DANIEL CANOGAR on view through June 16, 2019. This is Canogar’s debut of this new series of prints based on his acclaimed video works and his first works on paper.

The “Amalgama” series is composed of prints created with images of significant visual artists, both from the present and the past. These images have been downloaded from the Internet, and transformed through an algorithm created by the artist’s studio. The algorithm liquefies these images into a mercurial blend that partially abstracts the original images.

“Amalgama” is an attempt to understand how digital media is filtering our experience of art, perhaps updating Malraux’s musée imaginaire to the electronic age. The swirling effects that have transformed the original artworks evoke the ceaseless flow of information that courses through the Internet, transforming how artworks are consumed, processed and circulated online. “Amalgama” above all addresses the challenge of making, viewing and circulating art in our liquid modernity.

Zemer Peled Amazes With Her New Commissioned Work In The Maldives

Mark Moore Fine Art is pleased to share the images of a major work commissioned sculpture recently completed in the Maldives Islands by artist Zemer Peled.

IMG_0779

Zemer Peled, Untitled, Porcelein 66 x 36 x 36 inches

Zemer Peled’s labor-intensive process that bridges narrative and formalist elements. 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.

 

IMG_0460

Zemer Peled, Untitled, Porcelein 66 x 36 x 36 inches

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).
Using white and colored porcelains, Peled transforms sharp slivers of porcelain into feathers, petals, leaves, and spines that describe objects of unknowable origins: seductive but untrustworthy. The forms are complexly ordered from the inside out, often bulging or spilling over with textures 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. The forms are never static; the visual dance of sharp ceramic parts conveys a sense of constant movement. Like a murmuration of starlings, the sculptures appear to shift shapes as you move around them, an identity becoming and unbecoming in front of you.
The act of making for Peled is a feat of endurance, improvisation, and adaptation with the aim to embody a fleeting but fundamental feeling of mystery. The construction of her sculpture parallels negotiations any outsider makes in encountering a new world as they delicately construct a self that is both adaptable and resilient.

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.
