Allison Schulnik choreographs her subjects in compositions that embody a spirit of the macabre, a Shakespearian comedy/tragedy of love, death and farce. The subjects often stare back at the audience and study them as they are in turn studied, aware of their ancestors from the Grand Theme works of the past, the genre paintings that inform them. Although a haunting sense of foreboding, discomfort and unease is palpable, a sense of understanding, compassion and hopefulness for her cast of characters is still evident in the heavy impasto paintings. Her sculptural use of oil paint references her clay-animation background, as a motion-like sensibility affords her paintings unparalleled depth and energy.

Born in 1978 (San Diego, CA), Schulnik earned her BFA in Experimental Animation from the California Institute of the Arts, Valencia (CA). She has had solo exhibitions at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (CT), Laguna Art Museum (CA), Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OK), Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (KS), ZieherSmith Gallery (NY), Rokeby Gallery (London), Unosunove Arte Contemporanea (Rome), and Division Gallery (Montreal). In addition to her inclusion in prestigious film festivals around the world, her films have garnered multiple awards, including Best Experimental Animation at Ottawa International Animation Festival in 2014. Her work has also been shown at the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture (Scotland), Garage Center for Contemporary Culture (Moscow), Hammer Museum (CA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Santa Barbara Museum of Art (CA), San Diego Museum of Art (CA), Contemporary Arts Museum (LA), German Institute for Animated Film (Germany), Canada (NY), Lehman Maupin (NY), The Hole (NY), Acme (CA), and Hangar-7 (Salzburg), among many others. Allison Schulnik’s work is in the public collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (KS), Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), Santa Barbara Art Museum (CA), Museé de Beaux Arts (Montreal), Farnsworth Art Museum (ME), Laguna Art Museum (CA), Montreal Contemporary Art Museum (Canada), Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (CT), and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Canada). The artist lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

Mark Bennett “Blueprint” Works Highlighted in Wall Street International

Bennett_brady

Lithograph on Rives BFK paper / 24 × 36 in; 61 × 91.4 cm / Edition of 10

Please find below the link to artist Mark Bennett’s exhibition published on WSI Magazine currently featured as on exclusive online show on ARTSY:

https://wsimag.com/art/34523-mark-bennett

Mark Bennett’s (b. 1956, Tennessee) whimsical works engage with pop culture and celebrity to an extreme degree. His blueprint lithographs of Baby Boom era sitcoms and popular television series depict the ultimate pairing of flight of fancy and stoical logic; the purely imaginary floor plans grounded by the dry format of an architect’s design. His works are both pleasingly nostalgic and vaguely disconcerting in their premonition of a society obsessed by television and celebrity culture.

Lithograph on Rives BFK / 24 1/4 × 9 in; 61.6 × 22.9 cm / Edition of 10

Since his induction into the gallery in 1995, Bennett has been included in over three dozen significant museum and group exhibitions, including those at the Corcoran Gallery of Art (D.C.), Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art (CT), Walker Art Center (MN) and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA). His work has been acquired for the permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art (NY), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Orange County Museum of Art (CA), Corcoran Gallery of Art (DC), West Collection (PA), and the Portland Art Museum (OR), among others. Earning reverence from both critics and collectors alike, Bennett has been coined a master of nostalgia and social evaluation, acting as “the most earnest of his generation of West Coast artists drawing on popular culture” (Grady T. Turner, Art in America).

Version 2
Meghan Smythe, New work in the studio 2018

In addition, “Meghan Smythe: Recent Work” has been selcted as the Featured Exhibition of the Week by WSI Magazine. You can view the article at the following link on the Wall Street International website:

https://wsimag.com/art/41068-meghan-smythe-praxis
Using a traditional sculptural format (the monument), Meghan Smythe captures contradicting extremes within human gesture: intimacy and brutality, beauty and ugliness, or the lewd and tender. In her attempt to achieve an “elegant vulgarity,” she encapsulates moments that define our mortality in unanticipated ways; oftentimes toeing the delicate line between erotic and macabre tendencies that give way to life, and ultimately death. Glass, ceramic, and concrete are woven together in an elaborate, orgy-like web of body parts and organic artifacts, as if suddenly cast with Pompeii-like circumstances. Like excavated antiquities or fossils, Smythe’s ceramic compositions allude to the cyclical nature of civilization – a dramedy in which all of the players are subject to conquest and demise.

Artist Kim Rugg Featured in Wall Street International

1ed50a92a2800d999460ed0a3000bb49

 

Please find the link below to Kim Rugg’s exhibition published on WSI Magazine today:

https://wsimag.com/art/30801-kim-rugg

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an exclusive online exhibition of the recent “Map Series” works by British Artist Kim Rugg titled “Physical Graffiti” opening today and continuing through October 29th.

For this newest incarnation of her practice, Rugg has recently re-envisioned maps of countries, states, and cities around the world – all without borders, featuring a staggeringly precise hand-drawn layout with only city names and the names of regions and the missing topographic features as reference points.

This special presentation of these amazing works can be previewed now at the following link: 

https://www.artsy.net/mark-moore-gallery/shows

In her “Maps”, Kim 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 her 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.

Through this visual ruse in the “Maps” Series of works, Rugg critiques the media’s tendency to seduce its viewership through sensation and illusion rather than verisimilitude. A consistent theme throughout all of her work, patterns within the tactics of journalists, broadcasters, historians, and reporters alike are given clarity through Rugg’s purposeful distortion. At first glance, Rugg’s work appears disconnected from our regular lines of communication, but upon closer inspection, her visual subterfuge astutely mimics that of the everyday propagandist.

I have taken the liberty of placing all available works currently available by Kim Rugg for you the artist page of our ARTSY website for you to view there. To view this work, go to the following special link I have set up for you by clicking here.

Rugg received her MFA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art (London). Her work can be seen in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art (D.C.) and the Frederick R. Weisman Foundation (CA), the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), and the Norton Museum (FL), among others. She has been included in exhibitions at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (CA), Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts (NY), Galerie Schmidt Maczollek (Cologne), and Nettie Horn Gallery (Manchester), and was the recipient of the Thames and Hudson Prize from the Royal College of Art Society in 2004. She lives and works in London (UK).

Don’t miss “Ecological Consciousness: Artist as Instigator” featuring JEAN SHIN at Wave Hill in Bronx, NY

Ecological Consciousness: Artist as Instigator at Wave Hill in Bronx, NY

As communities’ concerns about persistent environmental issues have escalated, artists have been uniquely positioned to actively respond, collaborating with engineers, designers, landscape architects, ecologists, historians and other professionals to bridge the gap between science, art and activism. Wave Hill stands at the center of this shift, providing the impetus for Wave Hill’s summer exhibition that features projects by artists, collectives, and organizations that have initiated environmental projects.

Born in South Korea and raised in the United States, Jean Shin currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her works have been shown at more than 150 museums and cultural institutions, including in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC. In 2016 she completed a landmark commission, Elevated, for New York City’s Second Avenue subway.
