PENELOPE UMBRICO offers a radical reinterpretation of everyday consumer and vernacular images. Umbrico works “within the virtual world of consumer marketing and social media, traveling through the relentless flow of seductive images, objects, and information that surrounds us, searching for decisive moments—but in these worlds, decisive moments are cultural absurdities.”

She finds these moments in the pages of consumer product mail-order catalogs, travel and leisure brochures; and websites like Craigslist, EBay, and Flickr. Identifying image typologies—candy-colored horizons and sunsets, books used as props—brings the farcical, surreal nature of consumerism to new light.

Penelope Umbrico (born in Philadelphia, 1957) graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, and received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York. She has participated extensively in solo and group exhibitions, including at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and PS1 Contemporary Art Center, New York. Umbrico is core faculty in the School of Visual Arts MFA Photography, Video, and Related Media Program. Selected public collections include the Guggenheim Museum (NY), International Center of Photography (NY), McNay Museum of Art (TX), Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), Museum of Contemporary Photography (IL), Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), Museum of Modern Art (NY), and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), among others. She lives in New York City.

Webster’s dictionary not only defines “Bloom” to refer to “the period of flowering”, but also “the state or period of greatest beauty, freshness, or vigor” or, “(of fire, color, or light) become radiant and glowing”. Bloom – as it turns out – for such a simple word, has many different meanings an interpretations.

As the current “blooming” nature of art and commerce has facilitated industry-wide conversations about the evolving role of artists, galleries, museums, art fairs, and the Internet, Andy Warhol’s philosophies appear more topical and relevant than ever before. Using his iconic “Flowers” painting from 1964 as the foundation for this show, we assembled twenty artists we have worked with over the last 35 years to present “In Bloom (Again)”.

“In Bloom (Again)” uncovers a through-line between artists with disparate practices and preoccupations, prompting a larger “art world” dialogue that is truly Warholian and is blossoming with possibilities.

ROBERT STANDISH Painting Acquired by The Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation

COLLECTION OF THE WEISMAN ART FOUNDATION

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an exclusive online exhibition of the recent “Rhythmic Series” works by acclaimed emerging Los Angeles Artist ROBERT STANDISH titled “Aspect Dawning“.

Please find the link to this exhibition published on WSI Magazine:

https://wsimag.com/art/47591-robert-standish

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.

This exhibition is available for you to view now at:

DETAIL IMAGE: Acrylic on Canvas / 36 × 24 in; 91.4 × 61 cm

Now in “Aspect Dawning,” 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.

Robert Standish is an American painter living and working in Los Angeles whose organic process reveals the emotive effects of color, shape, and texture. Inspired by the color-field painters and Abstract Expressionism, Standish’s  free-flowing use of paint is his way of exploring abstraction and transcendence. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, JP MORGAN CHASE, The Weisman Foundation, 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 two recent group shows at the Carnegie Art Museum.

Final Day: Amy Elkins in “Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women in Louisiana” at Newcomb Museum / Tulane University

5e3a6eed-6977-448d-b457-52fb0e798507

I am thrilled to share that several commissioned pieces that artist AMY ELKINS so quietly and intensely worked on during the latter half of 2018 continue to be on display as part of the group exhibition Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women in Louisiana through July 6th!  While it is hard to see in these small images, each portrait was constructed meticulously out of hundreds (if not thousands) of catalog images of prison uniforms.  If you are in New Orleans make sure to go check it out to see it in person.

Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women in Louisiana
January 19th, 2019 – July 6th, 2019
Newcomb Museum
Tulane University
New Orleans, Louisiana

Curated by Monica Ramirez-Montagut and Laura Blereau
In partnership with Syrita Steib-Martin and Dolfinette Martin

eb16a859-bc7e-449f-a7c3-b7f4c472d40f
 

Works by Kira Akerman, Ron Bechet, Allison Beondé, Lee Deigaard, Lynn Drury, Keith Duncan, Amy Elkins, The Graduates, Glenn Ford, Butch Frosch, L. Kasimu Harris, Cherice Harrison-Nelson, Ana Hernandez, Maria Hinds, Epaul Julien, MaPó Kinnord, Kimberly Rivers Roberts (Queen Koldmadina), Henrietta Mantooth, Tammy Mercure, Anastasia Pelias, Shelia Phipp, Sarah Quintana, Rontherin Ratliff, Devin Reynolds, Jackie Sumell, Nubian Sun, Taslim van Hattum, Carl Joe Williams, Ryn Wilson.

Until last year Louisiana was known as the “Incarceration Capital of the World.” With the exception of Oklahoma, our state tops every other state in its incarceration rate and even outpaces many other nations, with about one in 75 adults in prison or jail at any given moment in Louisiana.  Per the Sentencing Project, the number of incarcerated women in the United States increased more than 700 percent between 1980 and 2014. According to the ACLU  only 18 percent of our female inmates have committed violent crimes and, today, about 80 percent of female inmates are mothers, 86 percent are survivors of sexual violence (according to a report by the Vera Institute of Justice).

Newcomb Art Museum has partnered with formerly incarcerated women, community organizations, stakeholders, and those directly impacted by the prison system to create the exhibition Per(Sister), which is intended to share the stories of currently and formerly incarcerated women in Louisiana, and shine a light on the myriad issues as identified and expressed by the women themselves.
