Check Out REBECCA MANSON In A Stunning New Exhibition on ARTSY

Rebecca Manson, “Two Hemispheres”, 2015 / 86’’ x 45’’ x 50’’ / Porcelain, epoxy, glaze

Mark Moore Fine Art Presents An ARTSY Online Exclusive Exhibition by REBECCA MANSON

On View Through January 12, 2019

Manson’s work stretches the limits of ceramics, challenging preconceived notions regarding fragility. “My work uses ceramics as a metaphor for the individual and societal body,” says Manson. “This sculpture was informed by the process of working with clay, a nature that wants to collapse. For me, ceramics is tied to personal resilience and rebuilding in the face of adversity.” Through hand building and glaze she explores the body’s connective yet testing relationship to landscape. Her work often incorporates tiny porcelain sculptures, each an intimate, bone-like shape, adhered and supported by elaborate systems made of metal and epoxy. Comprised of innumerable parts which on their own may appear insignificant, the structures celebrate the idea that small things together amount to something impactful. Her spherical works serve to memorialize collective consciousness.

EDNA is not a long lost relative, or partner, though she is the love of my life.” says artist Joseph Rossano.

“She is also the love of many of our lives: she is, in many ways, our mother earth. “EDNA” is an acronym for environmental DNA (eDNA), the biological trace of organisms that have been present in surrounding water, soil, or air. Instead of finding and capturing organisms in open water, or even a shovelful of earth, then individually extracting their DNA , we can isolate and, en masse, read DNA left behind in the environment itself, using bioinformatics tools to identify the individual organisms from which the DNA was sloughed.”

These works, published in association with Davis Editions, are wonderful examples of the artists best work. Davis Editions uses archival pigment inks and 100% cotton rag paper to create museum-quality prints that are fully archival. Each of these works is a limited edition of just twenty with two artists proofs. Once an edition is sold out, those prints are no longer available. Each print is hand-stamped and numbered on the back by Davis Editions and validated with a certificate of authenticity. The certificate includes pertinent information about the print including publication date, print number, and edition size, and is signed and dated by the publisher.

Oncorhynchus mykiss, The Steelhead, 2018
Archival pigment print
Image Size: 10 x 14 inches / Paper Size: 20 x 24 inches
Edition of 10 + 2AP

Rossano continues, “The biological equivalent of the tip of an iceberg, these fragments of being quite literally expose the DNA of previous visitors, extinct or extant, invasive or endemic and their ecological milieus across time. DNA can be extracted from an ice core and used to identify a mastodon as well as the flora (and their pollen) through which it lumbered. These organisms have not lived in this world for 10,000 years and yet their genetic remnants – a record of their individual natural histories – reveal a place in the past that was, previously unrecognizable and unreachable, even while held in one’s hand.”

“My EDNA works pay homage to place. Water, soil and air nurtured the forests from which each artwork is constructed, hosting many increasingly rare species. Reflecting the concept of eDNA, I depict animals that lived in these forests, exposing them on the environment’s salvaged remnants – plywood, cedar, ash, tar and more.”

Edition of 10 + 2AP

“EDNA”, as perceived through our five and more senses, is a sampling of organisms and their daily life, imagery, material and place, united in composing a much larger narrative of life – all life.

Joseph Rossano’s exhibition EDNA conveys a deep admiration for nature, science and history. While the interdisciplinary systems of the natural world are highlighted through his works, Rossano’s show serves as a sampling of different organisms and their connections to one another. Through a wide range of materials, Rossano composes a broad narrative that taps into the viewer’s senses and demands a profound consideration for the vastness of life.

Allison Schulnik Acquired by The Museum of Fine Art Houston

Schulnik_Misfits.141912

The gallery is pleased to announce the Museum of Fine Arts Houston‘s acquisition of “Misfits (Porcelain)“, 2007  – a major oil on canvas painting by artist ALLISON SCHULNIK.

The MFAH is founded on one simple belief: Art is for everyone. The mission of the education department is to offer programs, tours, resources, and materials that teach and engage adults, children, educators, and students in the world of art. The goal is to create experiences that embrace the importance of art and the Museum; to position art and the Museum as a meaningful part of a well-rounded life; and to work with partners who support the community through shared values and interests. Since 1900, when the MFAH opened as an art education project in the public schools, the institution has maintained its mission of bringing art to people wherever they live, play, and learn. This commitment has established the MFAH as A Place for All People, an initiative that began in the 1990s with the support of the Wallace Foundation. It has amassed impressive collections focusing on Contemporary Art, International and Regional Art, and Photography.

Allison Schulnik uses painting, ceramics, and hand-made, traditional animation to choreograph her subjects in compositions that embody a spirit of the macabre, a Shakespearean comedy/tragedy of love, death, and farce.  Her works were compared to  “the comic-grotesque visionary James Ensor” by The New York Times.  

Solo exhibitions include the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, CT; Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, CA; Oklahoma City Museum of Art, OK; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS; Mark Moore Gallery, Los Angeles; ZieherSmith, New York, NY; and Galeria Javier Lopez & Fer Frances, Madrid.

Schulnik has been making animated films since she was 17.  Her films have been included in internationally renowned festivals and museums including the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, LACMA, Annecy International Animated Film Festival and Animafest Zagreb.  She received “Best Experimental Animation” at the Ottawa International Animation Festival and Special Jury Prize at SXSW FIlm.  Her work is in the permanent collections of over a dozen institutions including LACMA and Museum des Beaux Arts, Montreal.  She lives and works in Sky Valley, CA.

We congratulate Allison on this major milestone. For more information about the artist or available works, please email: info@markmooregallery.com

Previewed: “School” by JOSEPH ROSSANO

school_square

Joseph Rossano, SCHOOL, 2018 / Glass / Dimensions Variable

Check out the video on the upcoming exhibition, SCHOOL, by MMFA artist JOSEPH ROSSANO that will be featured at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma.

The Museum of Glass (MOG) is a 75,000-square-foot art museum in Tacoma, Washington dedicated to the medium of glassSince its founding in 2002, the Museum of Glass has been committed to creating a space for the celebration of the studio glass movement through nurturing artists, implementing education, and encouraging creativity.

Rossano’s work uses the spectacle of art to disarm an audience, opening that audience to truths about man and nature. On the surface, it appears as though he is manufacturing representational art; the hidden reality is quite different. Rossano has made butterflies from fighter aircrafts; used whitewash and tar to tell a story of human behavior refusing to disappear; and employed 800-year-old trees as a historic reference to modern humanity.

Through the use of contextually significant materials, the artist’s work relates an environmental truth hidden in plain sight. Engaging in intensively researched life science theory, Rossano curates a narrative of his own manufacture, which exposes the viewer to that hidden truth and the theory it supports. Through a mutual desire to protect the natural world, he enlists prominent life scientists to, together, lead viewers to poignant, of the moment theories, represented in three dimensions.

Until a recent shift in scale, the vast majority of what he made reflected personal toil, crafted, conceived and researched by his hand and mind alone. No longer pursuing intimate works, Rossano now continues in the same vein with large-scale installations in the homes of U.S. President’s, and more, exposing ever larger audiences to the conceptual matrix surrounding his work and our world. These new works are created in association with other artists, corporations, and individuals, all willing to donate their time and materials to the causes Rossano addresses and messages they deliver – a model of community collaborating for a cause.

The scientist, the environmentalist, and the conservationist constantly face the challenge of convincing an audience to care about their work, cause, etc. Although artists face the same challenges, more often than not, it is an ego driven exercise. Rossano have chosen to make makes things regardless of profit, that are about something bigger than ourselves, , about individuals and creatures—whether they be human or other—that need our help.
