OPENING TODAY: An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition Of Recent Work BY Artist DENNIS EKSTEDT

OPENING MAY 5th: @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.

Getty Research institute Adds Eric Orr Archive

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.

DANIEL CANOGAR Debuts “Bifurcation” at the Noor Riyadh Light & Art Festival

Daniel Canogar new work, “Bifurcation” consists in electric-like bolts of light that zigzag up and down the Zebra Building. Connected to the internet, Bifurcation reacts in real time to thunderstorms happening around the globe. The algorithm created by the artist’s studio uses real-time data from a storm- tracking webpage. Some of the data that is interpreted includes the location of the storm, if the lightning bolts are vertical or horizontal, positive or negative, and the amperes of the lightning strike. All this information is processed to create a generative animation that constantly changes and never repeats itself.

The artwork metaphorically becomes a conduit for the planet’s energy, as well as a translator of human versus natural forms of power.

ENDS SUNDAY: Michael Batty “Then and Now – A Survey Of Recent Cut Line Abstraction Works”

Michael Batty: Then and Now – A Survey Of Recent Cut Line Abstraction Works

An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition February 17 – May 8, 2022

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

Michael Batty is a painter and a printmaker that operates with a formal language arising from a microcosm of the particle world. The minimalist pieces speak with geometry and line, and explores the balance between order and chaos by introducing random elements to the tightly rendered surfaces.

The artists builds up a webbed network of intersecting lines by cutting into the surface of the painting with a knife; creating thin ridges and minute grooves. The incised lines catch and divert the paint, creating a random ground of pigment with a shifting depth of colour to create quantum imagery. 

In these works, the artistic creation is an open-ended play of traces in which the work gives up to a new kind of beauty, one that is mobile and elusive. Each image with its cicatrix seems to deal with the physical world, but give no easy name to their places.

In a poststructuralist mode, using a non-traditional tool of a knife rather than a brush, Batty explores a tension, juxtaposing the hard edge of the knife with the soft flow of the paint, evoking a sense of infinity.

Also detectable in the work is a similar sensibility to the work of the Futurists, in their attempt to capture movement depicting it so as to convey a sense of dynamism of the contemporary world. These works allow the artist to remain open to the effects of chance, thereby facing his void – activating it with incisions that now mark him, as much as the work he produces. This discovery process is ongoing and non-linear. One edits only to find that the trace of what has been erased has reappeared, indeed, given rise to the eternal return. 

Batty graduated from Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver in 1989 with a major in painting. He attended the renowned artist workshops in Emma Lake, Saskatchewan, and studied printmaking at The Art Institute at Capilano College in Vancouver. Batty’s paintings can be found in collections around the world, including the Waldorf Astoria in Beijing, China, W Guangzhou, China, Four Seasons, Dubai, UAE, and Bank of Montreal in Calgary and Toronto.
