Artists’ books occupy a creative space between traditional books and contemporary works of art, challenging what a book can be. This highly visual and experiential presentation of some of the most lively and surprising works from the Research Institute’s extensive collections focuses on artists’ books that can be unpacked, unfolded, unfurled, or disassembled. They are made to be displayed on the wall or deployed as sculptures or installations. The exhibition seeks to provoke new inquiry into the nature of art and to highlight the essential role that books play in contemporary culture.

Christopher Russell (American, born 1974) begins with inkjet prints of landscapes, into which he etches intricate patterns and figures with a razorblade, transforming the photographs into layered narratives. Rather than destroying the image, his controlled, methodical process of scratching the surface adds layers of density and mystery to already enigmatic images that may capture sun glare, dense foliage, or repetitive pattern. Russell also engages in an active practice of writing and creating unique artist books and zines with psychological, folkloric undertones; photographic works connected to these texts acquire the status of hazy memories or dreamlike landscapes.

Mark Bennett “Father Knows Best” from his Dream Homes Series

Bennett_FKB_Anderson_BP_2017

MARK BENNETT, Home of Jim & Margaret Anderson, 2017, Lithograph on Rives BFK paper, 24 x 36 inches (Edition of 10) 

https://www.artsy.net/artwork/mark-bennett-home-of-jim-and-margaret-anderson

We have just a few of these works remaining, so please give this work your most serious consideration at this time.

Most will remember this home on 607 South Maple Street in Springfield from the TV Sitcom “Father Knows Best” that starred Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Elinor Donahue, Billy Gray, and Lauren Chapin. The series, which first began on radio in 1949, aired for six seasons with a total of 203 episodes. The series debuted on CBS in October 1954. It ran for one season and was canceled the following year. NBC picked up the series where it remained for three seasons. After a second cancellation in 1958, CBS picked up the series yet again where it aired until May 1960.

Mark Bennett‘s (b. 1956, Tennessee) whimsical works engage with pop culture and celebrity to an extreme degree. His blueprint lithographs of Baby Boom era sitcoms and popular television series depict the ultimate pairing of flight of fancy and stoical logic; the purely imaginary floor plans grounded by the dry format of an architect’s design. His works are both pleasingly nostalgic and vaguely disconcerting in their premonition of a society obsessed by television and celebrity culture.

For the past 25 years, Los Angeles-based artist Mark Bennett has made art firmly rooted in the collective American experience of television. His drawings and lithographs are “blueprints” of famous television houses from such classic sitcoms as The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Brady Bunch, and Perry Mason. Drawing these fictional dwellings from memory, Bennett documents the minutiae of the characters’ lives by constructing their environments with a painstaking level of detail. His floor plans narrate the American Dream, charting not only the architecture, but also the subtext of our culturally accepted models for living.

Daniel Canogar “Mirrors” – On View Now

canogar-Alta_02_SALA-136

You can view “Mirrors” – the exclusive ARTSY online exhibition of the works of Daniel Canogar – now at the following link: 

https://www.artsy.net/show/mark-moore-fine-art-daniel-canogar-mirrors

The exhibition will include alternate views of these works, all particulars, in addition to all pricing information.

Born in Madrid (1964) to a Spanish and an American mother, DANIEL CANOGAR´s life and career have bridged between Spain and the U.S. Photography was his earliest medium of choice, but he soon became interested in the possibilities of the projected image and installation art. His fascination with the technological history of optical devices, such as magic lanterns, panoramas and zoetropes, inspired him to create his own projection devices. Fox example, in the late 90s he created a multi-projection system with fiber optic cables. The resulting artworks were mobile-like hanging sculptures that projected images onto surrounding walls.

canogar-Draft3_MagnaCarta_Alta_02_SALA-113

With the advent of digital technology, the artist continued re-conceptualizing visual media as sculpture. By projecting video animations onto salvaged obsolete electronics, he was able to metaphorically reveal the collective dreames trapped within DVDs, old calculators, video-game consoles or found computer hard drives. Also notable are Canogar´s public artworks using flexible LED screens. Like with his earlier fiber optic cable installations, he once again reinvents an existing technology to suit his artistic explorations; by using flexible LED tiles, he is able to create twisting ribbon-like screens for atriums and public spaces.

canogar-RipplePais_1

He has created numerous public art pieces, including Tendril, a permanent sculptural LED screen for Tampa International Airport; Travesías, a sculptural LED screen commissioned for the atrium of the European Union Council in Brussels; Constelaciones, the largest photo-mosaic in Europe created for two pedestrian bridges over the Manzanares River, Madrid; and Asalto, a video-projection presented on various emblematic monuments including the Arcos de Lapa in Rio de Janeiro, Union Station in Toronto, Puerta de Alcalá in Madrid and ths church of San Pietro in Montorio in Rome.

His recent work includes “Fluctuations” at Sala Alcalá 31, Madrid; Storming Times Square, screened on 47 of the LED billboards in Times Square, New York; “Echo”, a solo exhibition at bitforms, New York, and Max Estrella Gallery in Madrid; “Vórtices”, an exhibition exploring issues of water and sustainability at the Fundación Canal Isabel II in Madrid and Synaptic Passage, an installation commissioned for the exhibition “Brain: The Inside Story” at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Artist Allison Schulnik spotlighted in Wall Street International

IMG_3500

I am attaching the link to Allison Schulnik’s exhibition published on Wall Street International Magazine:

https://wsimag.com/art/32284-allison-schulnik

Mark Moore Fine Art introduces first cast bronze works by artist Allison Schulnik from her “Hoof” Series of paintings and sculpture from 2016-2017.

Please find below the link to the Allison Schulnik “The Centaurette Bronzes” Exclusive ARTSY Online Exhibition – including the prices and alternate images of each work:

https://www.artsy.net/show/mark-moore-fine-art-allison-schulnik-the-centaurette-bronzes

Allison Schulnik choreographs her subjects in compositions that embody a spirit of the macabre, a Shakespearian comedy/tragedy of love, death and farce. The subjects often stare back at the audience and study them as they are in turn studied, aware of their ancestors from the Grand Theme works of the past, the genre paintings that inform them. Although a haunting sense of foreboding, discomfort and unease is palpable, a sense of understanding, compassion and hopefulness for her cast of characters is still evident in the heavy impasto paintings. Her sculptural use of oil paint references her clay-animation background, as a motion-like sensibility affords her paintings unparalleled depth and energy.

Born in 1978 (San Diego, CA), Schulnik earned her BFA in Experimental Animation from the California Institute of the Arts, Valencia (CA). She has had solo exhibitions at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (CT), Laguna Art Museum (CA), Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OK), Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (KS), ZieherSmith Gallery (NY), Rokeby Gallery (London), Unosunove Arte Contemporanea (Rome), and Division Gallery (Montreal). In addition to her inclusion in prestigious film festivals around the world, her films have garnered multiple awards, including Best Experimental Animation at Ottawa International Animation Festival in 2014. Her work has also been shown at the Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture (Scotland), Garage Center for Contemporary Culture (Moscow), Hammer Museum (CA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Santa Barbara Museum of Art (CA), San Diego Museum of Art (CA), Contemporary Arts Museum (LA), German Institute for Animated Film (Germany), Canada (NY), Lehman Maupin (NY), The Hole (NY), Acme (CA), and Hangar-7 (Salzburg), among many others. Allison Schulnik’s work is in the public collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art (KS), Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), Santa Barbara Art Museum (CA), Museé de Beaux Arts (Montreal), Farnsworth Art Museum (ME), Laguna Art Museum (CA), Montreal Contemporary Art Museum (Canada), Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (CT), and Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Canada). The artist lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.

Mark Bennett “Blueprint” Works Highlighted in Wall Street International

Please find below the link to artist Mark Bennett’s exhibition published on WSI Magazine currently featured as on exclusive online show on ARTSY:

Since his induction into the gallery in 1995, Bennett has been included in over three dozen significant museum and group exhibitions, including those at the Corcoran Gallery of Art (D.C.), Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art (CT), Walker Art Center (MN) and Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA). His work has been acquired for the permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art (NY), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), Orange County Museum of Art (CA), Corcoran Gallery of Art (DC), West Collection (PA), and the Portland Art Museum (OR), among others. Earning reverence from both critics and collectors alike, Bennett has been coined a master of nostalgia and social evaluation, acting as “the most earnest of his generation of West Coast artists drawing on popular culture” (Grady T. Turner, Art in America).
