A Special Preview Of VERNON FISHER “Seven From The Vault” – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

VERNON FISHER: SEVEN FROM THE VAULT – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

July 7 – September 11, 2022

Vernon Fisher is an American artist working in a wide range of media, best known for his skillful combinations and juxtapositions of image and language. In this exclusive ARTSY online exhibition we present seven important works from the artist’s personal collection available now.

“Anything that is resolved is either delusional or dishonest. We live far more arbitrary and capricious lives than we’re ready to admit. I think if we admitted it, we’d be scared all the time. Nothing in life is ever truly neat.” – Vernon Fisher

The mid-1970s was the period when Vernon Fisher started his artistic career, in the era marked by the legacies of Pop and Conceptual art. This mixture of styles created a unique fusion between painting and installation, in that way shaping new inspiring compositions derived from juxtapositions of language and imagery. Influenced by this period in contemporary art, but also by artists such as Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari, Fisher began creating his multilayered visual narratives. Resulting works – paintings, installations and collages – represent Vernon Fisher’s view on pop culture and contemporary society, enriched with art-historical and literary references. Often contextualized within a postmodernism, his works shares an influential practice of self-appraisal with Cy Twombly and Robert Rauschenberg.

Vernon Fisher was born in 1943 in Fort Worth, Texas. He studied English literature at the Hardin-Simmons University, where he received a BA in 1967. Vernon got his MFA in 1969, from the University of Illinois. As a true Fort Worth child, Fisher was raised and is still living in his hometown, where he enjoys appreciation as one of the Texas’s most internationally recognized artists.

The art of Vernon Fisher is included in the collections of more than 40 museums across the globe, such as the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, D.C., Art Institute of Chicago, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Phoenix Art Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The most important museum installation is in the collection of the famous Museum of Modern Art in New York.

ROBERT STANDISH: Now and Zen – An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition

VIEW THIS SHOW NOW AT: https://bit.ly/3vc8Kc6

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.

In his newest work, 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.

Detail Image

Robert Standish is an American painter living and working in Los Angeles whose organic process reveals the emotive effects of color, line, and texture. Inspired by the color-field painters, Abstract Expressionism, and Abstract Spritualism, Standish’s free-flowing use of paint is his way of exploring abstraction, composition and transcendence. His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, JP MORGAN CHASE,  Weisman Foundation, Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, Crocker Art Museum, 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 group shows at the Carnegie Art Museum, Frederick R Weisman Museum of Art, a duo show with Sam Francis at Martin Lawrence Gallery, and a solo show at the Museum of Art and History, Lancaster.

Kim Rugg: In Retrospect – An ARTSY Exclusive Online Exhibition On View Now

@MarkMooreGallery presents an exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition of twenty benchmark works by artist KIM RUGG on view June 2 – August 7, 2022. View KIM RUGG: IN RETROSPECT at: https://bit.ly/3LoLgFC
 
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 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) 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.

MUST SEE: An Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition Of Recent Work BY Artist DENNIS EKSTEDT

On View Now: @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 Eric Orr documentary archive and papers are now part of Getty Special Collections

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.
