ENDS SUNDAY: An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition Of Recent Work BY Artist DENNIS EKSTEDT

Closing This Sunday: @MarkMooreGallery presents an exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition of twelve recent paintings by artist DENNIS EKSTEDT. View this show now at: https://bit.ly/3ITPGCY

In Ekstedt’s latest paintings he depicts human populations as web-like networks of light particles spun over the landscape. In these paintings, clusters of undulating lights populate vast and dramatic terrains that are literally electrified by human habitation. Ekstedt is interested in depicting populations in movement that represent the uncontrolled growth of human habitation on the global landscape. In some of his paintings he depicts masses of people, represented by particles of light, that are engaged in spectacle, celebration, and ritual. Ekstedt has long been intrigued by how networks of lights can physically mark a landscape while at the same time ethereally transcending it, resembling a schematic plan that depicts a kind of celestial order. 

Dennis Ekstedt is an artist who lives and works in Montreal, Canada. He received his Diploma in Fine Arts in 1986 from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver B.C and his M.F.A in 1993 from Concordia University in Montreal. He was the Eastern Canada winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition in 2002 and his paintings are included in many international public, corporate and private collections. He has exhibited in Canada, France, and the U.S.

A Special Preview Of VERNON FISHER “Seven From The Vault” – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

VERNON FISHER: SEVEN FROM THE VAULT – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

July 7 – September 11, 2022

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.

Daniel Canogar OCULUS Unveiled At The Novartis Pavillion Basel, Switzerland

OCULUS

Generative Animation on LEDs embedded in solar panels (zero-energy media façade)
42.8m ø, 13.9m h
Total area, 1‘439.0m2

Oculus is a generative animation that features the Novartis Pavillon zero-energy media facade in Basel, Switzerland. The Pavillon, built with a unique solar panel technology developed by iart studio, presents an artistic program curated by Martin Furler and Sabine Himmelsbach.

Oculus is a generative abstract animation that responds in real-time to data related to climate change. An algorithm, custom-designed by Studio Daniel Canogar, accesses a number of webpages that monitor different phenomena, including polar ice caps melting, carbon dioxide levels, active fire data and global temperature anomalies. Oculus’ animation references this data through four different versions of color-coded graphics, with a visual vocabulary that artistically reinterprets traditional climate change visualizations.


Thanks to the internet we have a more complete understanding of climate change. The data culled from myriads of data entry points around the planet is giving us a bigger and more detailed picture of what is happening to our global ecosystem; however, the vast amount of information creates representational challenges. Oculus’ algorithmic animation moves beyond the hard numbers and structured graphics of climate-change data, and instead creates a more emotional and sensorial experience of this climate information.

Closing Soon: ROBERT STANDISH: Now and Zen – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

ROBERT STANDISH: Now and Zen – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

Ending July 17, 2022

VIEW THIS SHOW NOW AT: https://bit.ly/3vc8Kc6

For twenty years, Los Angeles painter Robert Standish had been abstracting reality by altering his own powerful and moving photorealistic paintings of daily life. Seven years ago, Standish shifted away from constructing lifelike replicas of the world, and into an investigation of the unconscious unknown through abstraction. His move into an Abstract Expressionist “wet-on-wet” technique developed in tandem with his interests in cosmology and topography, in addition to psychological theory – namely, Dr. Carl Jung’s notion and analysis of the human psyche.

In his newest work, Standish revisits the essential element of his early style of photorealistic painting, namely, a photo reference, but through his more recent lens of abstraction. Fed up with biased news reporting, Standish sources his imagery from top U.S. and world news stories; often selecting photos from the Internet and various social media platforms associated with polarizing content. By unifying his disparate techniques, he gradually manipulates the palette and texture of the original image to change the representation of its featured subject – and subsequently, the viewer’s interpretation of it. Transcendence being a consistent theme of his practice, Standish’s newest work is true to his rejection of the finite, and his proclivity for the universal.

Detail Image

Robert Standish is an American painter living and working in Los Angeles whose organic process reveals the emotive effects of color, line, and texture. Inspired by the color-field painters, Abstract Expressionism, and Abstract Spritualism, Standish’s free-flowing use of paint is his way of exploring abstraction, composition and transcendence. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, JP MORGAN CHASE,  Weisman Foundation, Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Crocker Art Museum, Louis K. Meisel, Larry and Marilyn Fields, Patricia Arquette, Norwest Venture Partners, and BRYANT/ STIBEL, along with numerous other acclaimed collections. Standish’s paintings have been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums, including group shows at the Carnegie Art Museum, Frederick R Weisman Museum of Art, a duo show with Sam Francis at Martin Lawrence Gallery, and a solo show at the Museum of Art and History, Lancaster.

Kim Rugg: In Retrospect – An ARTSY Exclusive Online Exhibition On View Now

@MarkMooreGallery presents an exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition of twenty benchmark works by artist KIM RUGG on view through August 7, 2022. View KIM RUGG: IN RETROSPECT at: https://bit.ly/3LoLgFC
 
With surgical blades and a meticulous hand, Kim Rugg (b. 1963, Canada) dissects and reassembles newspapers, stamps, comic books, cereal boxes and postage stamps in order to render them conventionally illegible. The front page of the LA Times becomes neatly alphabetized jargon, debunking the illusion of its producers’ authority as much as the message itself. Through her re-appropriation of medium and meaning, she effectively highlights the innately slanted nature of the distribution of information as well as its messengers. Rugg has also created hand-drawn works alongside wallpaper installations, both of which toy with authenticity and falsehood through subtle trompe l’oeil. In her maps, Rugg re-envisions the topography of various states, countries, continents, and even the world without borders, featuring a staggeringly precise hand-drawn layout with only city names and regions as reference points. In own sense of abstracted cartography, Rugg redistributes traditional map colors (or eliminates them entirely) in order to nullify the social preeminence given to constructed territories, and highlight the idea that our attention is manipulated to focus on the powerful few instead of the physical many.

Must See: Eric Orr Film Documentary “Crazy Wisdom”

Eric Orr Film Documentary

I hold these works of Eric Orr very dear to my heart as I had the honor and the pleasure of representing and exhibiting the artist from 1984 until 1994, when I moved my gallery to Santa Monica. Eric Orr was an incredible artist and his works are vastly underappreciated in the context of both Light and Space works from the West Coast and his painting and sculpture of the Eighties and Nineties. I would highly recommend that you view the excellent film on his life and work recently released by his daughter, Elizabeth Orr. 

The film is called “Crazy Wisdom,” in honor of the kind of holy madness that Orr admired in Buddhist thought, and that he lived every moment of his life. Peggy Orr says that her husband was “a showman, a personality, a genius…” His friends, interviewed by Elizabeth for her film, concur, and have a few more comments on top of that. For your reference, you can view a two-minute trailer for this film online at the following link:

In both his installations, sculpture and paintings, Eric Orr worked with elemental qualities of natural materials; stone, metal, water, and fire, gold leaf, lead, blood, human skull, and AM/FM radio parts. Orr worked with the phenomenological exploration of perception. His body of work also includes monochromatic paintings, and large-scale fountains (with water & fire). His work was influenced by a religio-philosophical conceptualization of space icons found in ancient religions and cultures, such as Egyptian symbolism and Buddhist Spiritualism. Orr is associated with Light and Space, a group of mostly West Coast artists whose work is primarily concerned with perceptual experience stemming from the viewer’s interaction with their work. “The space itself changes you, instead of an object.”

He was “an outlaw,” says Kent Hodgetts, “a raconteur,” says Larry Bell, “terrifically literate,” says Maurice Tuchman. Susan Kaiser Vogel remembers his “unconditional friendship,” and that he provided “adventures in the crazy zone.” Orr was, in fact, California’s version of Yves Klein, a metaphysical adventurer who was unafraid of limits and who saw potential where others saw impediments and voids.

By his death in 1998, Eric Orr had fearlessly taken his experiential art in an astonishing range of directions, while at the same time remaining interested in essential experiences and elements. He might have been surprised to find that his work has had a kind of reincarnation through the efforts of his children. “I also relate to early Buddhism in that I have no sense of the afterlife,” he once told me. “I think we’re like television sets, and when we die, the off button is pushed and the show is over.”
