Previewed: KIM RUGG “Stitches” – Opening May 13, 2021

Mark Moore Fine Art is proud to announce the exclusive ARTSY online exhibition of new work by artist KIM RUGG on view now titled, “Stitches.

With surgical blades and a meticulous hand for nearly two decades Kim Rugg (b. 1963, Canada) dissected and reassembled newspapers, stamps, comic books, cereal boxes and postage stamps in order to render them conventionally illegible. In her early work, 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) 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.

In this new series of embroidered work and woven fabric, Rugg explores contemporary social themes using a most traditional European medium, embroidery, and woven fabrics.

Moral or religious texts continued to be a frequent choice in the first half of the 19th century. These “Samplers”, first popular in England in the mid-17th century, that focused on improving or pious statements are central to the often unsophisticated pieces we now recognize as a ‘classic’ Victorian sampler. This type of piece was also important in the embroidery traditions of European settlers in America, whose strongly felt sense of religious purpose helped to sustain them in an unfamiliar and often unforgiving landscape.

As The artist put it, “These works were inspired by the tradition of embroidering or cross-stitching a favorite passage of the Bible or other religious book and displaying it on the wall. I have used this language to interpret the words of D Trump, in particular his tweets whom some people follow with an almost religious devotion.”

“The tweets are hand embroidered onto traditional, soft furnishing backgrounds using an elegant typeface. I have transposed them without editing or correction. I have included the time and date of the tweet in reference to the attribution of a scripture quote to its author. They are mounted on board with some upholstery foam and trims to give them a “Lush feel”.

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), Honolulu Museum of Art, the Norton Museum (FL), and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (TX) 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), P.P.O.W. Gallery (NYC), 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).

Zemer Peled Featured In THE CONVERSATION on BBC

Focus: Women Making Art From Clay

The Conversation

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3cszj4q

Pottery is one of the oldest and most widespread decorative arts and has enjoyed rising popularity in recent years. At the same time, ceramics are increasingly significant as contemporary art. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two ceramicists about sprigging, drying, firing and smashing; commercial collaborations; and getting their pieces in museums. 

Hitomi Hosono is a Japanese ceramicist whose delicate work sits in the British Museum and V&A. She’s also collaborated with the world-famous Wedgewood pottery manufacturer to make jasperware vases. Her ceramics, with a chalk-like finish and gold embellishments, are rooted in both Japanese and European traditions. Inspired by the intricacy of plants, leaves and flowers her pots seem to sway in the breeze and grow.

Israeli ceramicist Zemer Peled took up pottery as part of therapy after a break-up in her 20s and now exhibits at galleries and museums around the world. Her work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. She makes large and small-scale sculptures and installations from thousands of porcelain shards – and has a growing collection of hammers!

Getty Research institute Adds Eric Orr Archive

The Eric Orr documentary archive and papers are now part of Getty Special Collections

ERIC ORR
Without Red, 1983
Oil, blood, and chinese hair on canvas with lead frame and gold leaf
29 × 24 × 1 1/2 in / 73.7 × 61 × 3.8 cm

The photographs, slides, and negatives of paintings, sculptures, and fountains by contemporary artist Eric Orr have recently been acquired by the Getty Research Institute (GRI). The archive also includes schematic drawings and plans for Orr’s public works, as well as ephemera, clippings, and administrative files that detail his life and practice.

Eric Orr (1939-1998) is a key figure of the Light and Space movement in Southern California. Born in 1939 in Covington, Kentucky, Orr graduated from the Kentucky Military Institute in 1958 and spent his early years traveling across the United States and Cuba. He briefly attended the University of Cincinnati in the early 1960s, where he produced his first sculpture, Colt .45, a work later known as Saturday Night Special. The work featured a mounted pistol facing a chair; viewers could sit and control the pistol via a foot pedal. Orr participated in civil rights protests in Mississippi in 1964 before relocating to Los Angeles in 1965, where he began to produce performances, sound art, and perceptual installations, using the elemental qualities of silence, sound, darkness, and light as material. Among these works was Zero Mass (1972-1973), an immersive 38-foot-long installation made of paper, where up to five people could enter a dark oval chamber and, after 10 to 12 minutes, experience altered vision from the lack of spatial perception. Developing alongside both Southern California conceptual art and the perceptual-based installations commonly associated with Light and Space art, Orr’s work spanned a variety of artistic practices that challenged the definition of artmaking while also incorporating a broad range of cultural references, including space icons found in ancient religions and cultures, Egyptian symbolism, and Buddhist spiritualism. From the 1970s onward, Orr created a diverse body of atmospheric monochrome paintings using airbrushing and oil paint, wall-mounted sculptures, and public artworks which incorporated a variety of elements including fire, water, gold, volcanic ash, meteorite dust, and his own blood.Orr participated in a number of international exhibitions during his life, including documenta VII (1982), the Sydney Biennale (1986), and the Venice Biennale (1986). His work can be found in many public and private collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Orr died in Venice, California, in 1998.

The archive will be open to researchers and is among numerous archives at the GRI related to the Light and Space movement and Southern California artists and curators, making it the ideal home for his legacy.

Jay McCafferty 1948-2021

Jay McCafferty, When I Shave (1973-2021)

March 21, 2021 a good friend of the gallery Jay McCafferty, one of Los Angeles’s most important and convention-defying artists, died March 21 at his home north of Santa Barbara. He was 73.

Although commonly known as a Minimalist, he was also grouped with the Post-Minimalist tendencies of Conceptual and Process art. His working method remained constant-focusing rays of sunlight through a magnifying glass to achieve perforated surfaces of great variety; from early works resembling transgressive, cigarette -sized burns on various grounds and later to delicate, complex compositions on pigmented papers.

McCafferty was born and raised in San Pedro, California where he lived and worked for his entire life-with sojourns to his ranch north of Santa Barbara. As a young artist, McCafferty won the LACMA  New Talent Award and received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship grant. His art has been exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally, in well over one hundred exhibitions between 1971 and 2019. McCafferty’s work is held in numerous public collections including The Getty Museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art.

Jay McCafferty

After graduating San Pedro High School, McCafferty studied for a brief time at Los Angeles Harbor College, in Wilmington. Subsequently, he attended Chapman College where he also studied on the World Campus Afloat before attending California State University, Los Angeles. There he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art. In 1973 he received an MFA degree from the University of California, Irvine(UCI). At UCI, McCafferty studied with such artists as Craig Kauffman, Ed Moses and Tony Delap. His classmates included Charles Christopher Hill, John Knight, Richard Newton, Chris Burden and Alexis Smith. McCafferty presented his first video exhibition, solo, in 1974 at the Long Beach Museum of Art. It was described by the Getty’s Glenn Phillips as a “suite of truly humorous and poetic single-channel videos”.
