ARTSY Featured Show of the Week: AMY MYERS”Ultraviolet Underground”

Mark Moore Fine Art is very pleased to present an Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition by artist AMY MYERS titled “Ultraviolet Underground”.

VIEW THIS SHOW AT: https://bit.ly/3EMd4Ec

Amy Myers is best known for her large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings, which depict complicated worlds reminiscent of scientific patterns. Her father was a physicist, a fact often noted as an influence on the aesthetics and structure of her work.

Myers’ compositions, always balanced but never exactly symmetrical, seamlessly integrate layers of matter radiating from a central, often labial core. Some elements are comprised of soft, biomorphic forms, at times fleshy and pulsating, at other times wispy and iridescent. Other structures appear as webs of severe, geometric forms slicing through the multi-layered composition, reminiscent of cyborgian hybrids, industrial machinery, and the bio-mechanical art of H. R. Giger. Many elements of Myers’ works are reminiscent of human organs, particularly the vulva, a symbol of creation that relates to the cyclical recreation and renewal inherent to the mechanics of the universe. Myers’ art has clear ties to Feminist art, with notable visual similarities to Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings of flowers, buildings, and landscapes, and Judy Chicago’s series of vulvic plates for “The Dinner Party.”

Lisa Stefanelli Featured In FLORA: THE IMPERMANENCE OF BEAUTY

Lisa Stefanelli is an artist living and working in New York City and Easton, Pennsylvania. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and received her degree in 1989. She has been a practicing artist for the last three decades.

“The underlying pursuit of my studio practice is to examine the possibility of being simultaneously involved and uninvolved in the complexity of all of our relationships, both animate and inanimate. Elements of the environments we inhabit—signage, sound/music, advertising, and popular culture (basically the cultural clutter of our lives)—are primary in informing the paths and trajectories of the works’ visual language. The work is elaborate and complicated while concurrently yearning to avoid the entanglements it embodies. And yet there is a joy in the confusion we live in. My practice chases that joy.”

-Lisa Stefanelli (2019)

Most recent solo exhibitions include Robischon Gallery, Denver, Colorado, Pentimenti Gallery, Philadelphia, Penn, Pierogi Gallery, NYC, Robischon Gallery, and Mark Moore Gallery, Los Angeles, California.

She has work in the collections of the United States Department of State, Washington DC, The West Collection, Oaks, PA, The Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, MA, The Mondstudio Collection at the Kunstmuseum, Berne, Switzerland, The Albright Knox Gallery, Buffalo, NY and The Wynn Collection, Las Vegas, NV.

Closing Sunday: DIRK STASCHKE “Recent Work” – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

Dirk Staschke: Recent Work

An Exclusive Online ARTSY Exhibition

View this show now at: https://bit.ly/3SioB1X

Dirk Staschke is best known for his exploration of Dutch Vanitas still life themes in the medium of ceramics. His current body of work explores the space in between sculpture and painting. His work often uses meticulous representation as foil for examining skill and craft.

As he recently stated:

Occasionally, Art allows for the manipulation of materials into something greater than the sum of its parts. I look to the still life as a window into the transcendent, an attempt to conjure the metaphysical from the mundane. This transformation through processes is analogous to a search for some deeper meaning or truth.

Dutch still life paintings, sometimes called Vanitas, are concerned with the futility of pleasure and the certainty of death. Religious in nature, the paintings also confer the belief that this world is somehow less real than the one that awaits. It is this modulation between the real and illusionistic that most interests me and ultimately makes my work about our perceptions.

I endeavor to explore the space in between sculpture and painting that neither medium can occupy alone. Look behind a painting and the illusion of space is lost. My work seeks to give that space a tangible form. Like a movie set, the knowable gives way to a backdrop of structures that exist in support and in reaction to its creation. Representation becomes a departure point and a foil for examining skill and craft.

My work is viewpoint dependent, at times making complete sense to the viewer as an organized painting yet completely discordant from other angles. Notions of front and back become subjective. The act of how something was formed imbues meaning. The relation of what is fully formed to what is left unfinished expresses that meaning. It contrasts perceptions of taste, ability, and worth.

He received his BFA from the University of Montevallo followed by an MFA from Alfred University and has maintained an ongoing studio practice and extensive exhibition record for the last twenty years. During this time, he has taught at many notable universities, including Alfred University and New York University. His work has been shown internationally and resides in the permanent collections of several museums including the Smithsonian Museum in Washington (DC), Icheon Museum, World Ceramic Center (Gwango-dong) South Korea, Portland Art Museum (OR). He has received various artist’s grants including grants from The Virginia Groot Foundation and the Canada Council on the Arts.

On View Now: Todd Hebert “This Way, That Way, Up, and Down” | Artsy

Todd Hebert: This Way, That Way, Up, and Down  

An Exclusive Artsy Online Exhibition Closing February 12th

VIEW THIS WORK NOW AT: https://bit.ly/3h3z43w

Todd Hebert is known for his playful use of scale and focus in paintings and works on paper that depict objects within distilled outdoor settings. “This Way, That Way, Up, and Down” finds Hebert continuing his unique synthesis of still life and landscape traditions, as well as ushering in a new material direction for his work.

While Hebert has always employed a variety of materials in his works on paper, the illusionistic effects in his paintings have been achieved largely through the use of an airbrush. In recent years, he has turned to a more traditional method for developing the indistinctness and depth associated with his work: he applies brushy layers of paint over rough surfaces of hemp, jute, or linen canvas. The resulting interplay of color, shape, and texture characterizes the work in the show. 

Those acquainted with Hebert’s work will notice familiar imagery throughout the exhibition. But instead of finding his subjects displayed before identifiable scenery, viewers will discover them set within monochromatic fields that seem at once vast, and very close. 

The icebergs, snowmen, and plastic water bottles that populate the works are realistically rendered, yet they attain an abstract quality due to disparities in their scale and spatial position. In one work, an out-sized water bottle appears leaden, anchored to the bottom of a blue expanse. In another, a diminished iceberg hovers weightless atop a white plane. In compositions such as these, Hebert presents a world where figurative distinctions like heaviness and lightness; surface and depth; mundanity and monumentality; are suspended, primed for reconsideration.

Final Day: KIM RUGG “YOU’VE GOT MAIL” – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

OPENING TODAY: @markmooregallery presents a KIM RUGG Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition of The Postage Stamp Series works from 2007-2020 titled “You’ve Got Mail”.

VIEW NOW AT: https://bit.ly/3oAiuJ8

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 New York 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. 

“Some people like taking their time,” says Kim Rugg, whose artistic achievements are measured in millimeters, spent X-ACTO blades and picas. We spent the afternoon with Rugg in her London home and studio talking about her work re-imagining newspapers, comics, stamps and cereal boxes using their existing form while rearranging their content. Kim finds inspiration from the mundane and common objects around us. Her wicked knife skills and tenacious attention to detail have create a body of work that is as impressive as it is curious.

Matter is neither created nor destroyed in Kim Rugg’s work, but surgically, strategically repurposed. Rugg reconfigures familiar printed materials: here newspapers, magazines and maps; previously also postage stamps, comic books and cereal boxes. By altering their forms and tweaking or altogether eliminating their legibility, she slams on the visual brakes, forcing a closer, slower inspection of objects we typically look through rather than at. The raw materials of her enterprise give up their transparency and functionality as information delivery systems to become instead sculptural interpretations of those same systems. They sacrifice one type of authority, but assume another.

Rugg is renowned for her meticulous and labor-intensive work which involves deconstructing and slicing an object into minute shards to then re-organise and reconstruct it according to arbitrary codes. The original meaning is removed in order to reveal new ones, and to corrupt or destroy the object’s function. This act of mischievous “sabotage” is applied to ephemeral and iconic objects such as newspapers, comic books, product boxes, sweaters and stamps, and more recently to larger formats such as wallpaper – and, by doing so, she turns a neutral vehicle for a message into an object to be considered.
 
By giving value to something which would normally be disposed of, Rugg transgresses conventional systems by obliterating what is conceived to be the important element, “the content”, and retaining everything else, the material, the shapes, the typography, the colour palettes and the layout. Through the new works presented in the exhibition, she continues her investigation into the relationship between images and their signifier. She questions the way in which the information we process daily is preconceived and prompts the viewer to consider the familiar from an entirely new perspective.

A Major New Work by YORAM WOLBERGER Released

NEW WORK BY YORAM WOLBERGER

Image: YORAM WOLBERGER, Thank You (Poppy), 2023, Fiberglass Composite and Ink, 60 x 63 x 5 inches / Edition: 5/5 plus 2 Aps

FOR MORE INFO: bit.ly/3glhxEf

Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to announce the release of a new major wall sculpture work by gallery artist YORAM WOLBERGER. The first of this series is now available for presale at this time.

Of this work, Wolberger writes:

“A commonly used, mass-produced shopping bag, stamped with the iconic graphic of a red Poppy and “Thank You”, escaped an overloaded trash bin near a Mall’s food court. It has been lifted high up into the air, following us on our way back home, floating over the city’s buildings, highways, and bridges. We watch it struggling to transform its beaten and wrinkled form, as if it is trying to elevate its existence, from a utilitarian by-product of consumerism to a featherlike, translucent spectacle with a new destiny.”

“My art strives to manipulate and challenge perceptions of the familiar through a variety of sculptural interventions. I often choose to work with everyday, culturally familiar iconic objects to which we attach deep-seated and often unconscious meanings.  Transformed beyond their original context, these objects suggest new associations and provoke fresh insights into their larger societal relevance and influence.”

Wolberger’s (b. 1963, Tel Aviv, Israel)  works have been acquired for the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art (NY), Frederick R. Weisman Foundation (CA), the Orange County Museum of Art (CA), Sweeney Art Gallery, University of California Riverside (CA) and the McNay Art Museum (TX). The artist lives and works in San Francisco, CA.
