Wolf Kahn and Guy Yanai, Is Landscape Painting Still Relevant?

Wolf Kahn and Guy Yanai, Is Landscape Painting Still Relevant?

Rhino Horn Artists

2 December 2015

In a recent review of Maureen Gallace’s current exhibition at 303 Gallery by Barry Schwabsky, the subject of whether painting a landscape is relevant in today’s era was brought up. Gallace’s landscapes are certainly an example of how a landscape can be far more than just an aesthetic rendering of a natural scene. They present moments in time that exhibit specific natural and subconscious occurrences. In a way, her handling of light and movement of natural elements makes her a contemporary Impressionist painter.

Guy Yanai’s Sad Things in Happy Colors

Interview by Erin Spens

Guy Yanai is an Israeli painter living and working in Tel Aviv. His work often depicts everyday objects and places using vibrant colors and simple shapes. Like snapshots of memories, the paintings feel familiar and yet detached from reality, bridging a wonderful divide between then and now.

CRAVE, Exhibit | Julio Larraz: Epic Daydreams

10 November 2015

Simple reality seamlessly blends with beautiful imagination.

Julio Larraz describes the vivid images that he paints as visions that come to him as dreams he sees during the day. These images may come on and off over the years, though some, Larraz reveals, “are recent ones, other are long-time friends. There is a mixture of it. I don’t like to do theme works. I prefer to take something and see it from fresh eyes, rather than see it forever.”

17 October 2015

Smartly dressed gallerygoers spilled out of brightly lit spaces all in a row Thursday, on what seemed like an evening of openings. Past a whiff of wine from the makeshift bar flanking the entrance to Ameringer McEnery Yohe, a loud din filled the warm room, ceasing for a moment only when a glass shattered on the floor. The lively reception celebrated the opening of Julio Larraz’s first solo show with the gallery since he joined in 2014.

Julio Larraz may not have started an actual salmon club like his mother suggested, but he did become and continues to be an essential and illustrious figure in the art world. The work of Larraz belongs in no recognized genre. His paintings, all saturated with striking colors and sharp light reveal a world of metaphor and pre-meditated dreams inspired by Julio's past, present days and his small, poetic daily observations.

Cuban Art News, Cuba in Chelsea: A Guide for October, This month, an unprecedented number of New York gallery shows spotlight Cuban artists

6 October 2015

In diplomatic circles, the thaw in Cuba-U.S. relations may be happening mostly behind the scenes. But the same cannot be said for the art world. The past few months have seen several major gallery shows of contemporary Cuban and Cuban-American artists—and nowhere more than New York City, where no fewer than seven solo and group shows will be on view this month. Here’s a quick guide to where to find Cuban contemporary art in Chelsea in October.

Paperworks

27 September 2015 - 3 January 2016

LOS ANGELES — The Craft & Folk Art Museum (CAFAM) presents Paperworks, an exhibition that examines the range of work by fifteen contemporary artists with strong ties to Los Angeles who use paper as their primary medium. Their art comprises two- dimensional cut-outs and collages; free-standing sculptures; and large-scale installations that engage the architecture of the museum’s gallery space. Many of the works are created newly for this presentation. Paperworks, organized for the Craft & Folk Art Museum by independent curator Howard N. Fox, is on view from September 27, 2015 through January 3, 2016. An illustrated catalogue including texts on each artist will accompany the exhibition.

3 July - 16 August 2015

Liat Yossifor: Pre-Verbal Painting at the Contemporary Art Museum (CAM) highlighted new work by the Israeli-born and now California based artist. Ranging from almost pocket-sized painting to the attention demanding large-scale, 60 x 62 inch canvases, Yossifor’s abstract, gestural paintings show thickly applied paint, worked across the canvas in sometimes long, sometimes short strokes. The six canvases that make up Pre-Verbal Painting share a monochromatic color palette, mostly consisting of a light gray, almost white, with hints of blues, yellows, reds, or greens showing through.

Out There, Michael Reafsnyder's Very Own Abstract Expressionism

22 September 2015

Paraphrasing Dave Hickey, who wrote a great essay that accompanies Michael Reafsnyder's latest catalog for his solo show at Ameringer, McEnery and Yohe, Michael is considered a radical, not so much because of how we look at his paintings, but more because he is concerned with how we look at paintings in general. He is a radical who for many years has revived Abstract Expressionism painterly traditions, in his own way.

spreadsheetspace

25 September - 9 October 2015

Spreadsheetspace is a new installation by Franklin Evans using the grid and organizational format of the Excel spreadsheet to construct a three-dimensional painting space. The installation shows the how and what of painting, memory, and the construction and navigation of studio practice and the art world. Digital prints, paint, process notes, residual painter’s tape, and images combine to suggest both the interior of three-dimensional painting and the brain of an artist organizing information. The images and information include: (i) the artist’s Haugan family from Morgedal, Norway whose great-grandfather (Olaf Haugan, the ski jump world record holder, 1879) immigrated to the United States, (ii) contemporary art and art history, (iii) art world logistics, and (iv) the process logistics for spreadsheetspace.

Nature/Nurture

17 September - 11 October 2015

ArtPrize Seven at GRAM will bring another thematic exhibition of work by artists from across the globe to West Michigan. This exhibition will address this theme in its broadest sense, serving as a framework for exhibiting and interpreting a wide range of different works of art. Nature/Nurture will explore the circumstances of every-day life and the complex character of identity. Are we a product of our DNA or of our environment? The classic construct of nature versus nurture as debated by philosophers and scientists will be only one dimension of this multi-faceted exhibition. Nature/Nurture will also investigate the numerous ways in which artists address the themes of nature and nurture separate from one another.

Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects is pleased to announce, movements, Yunhee Mins fifth solo exhibition at the gallery. In her new work, Min continues to explore the sensorial potential of color, light, and gesture. Movements refers both to literal and suggested motion and change: her gestures on the canvas, the viscosity of her paint, and the way these actions combine to produce a shifting spatiality within her compositions. These paintings neither suggest infinite depth nor firmly reinforce the flatness of the support; instead there is continuous expansion of space generated by the relationship of each movement to the next.

As such, the exhibition, Liat Yossifor: Time Turning Paint, will explore abstraction as a political form and question the efficacy of both the medium and the genre as well as its relationship to artistic practice in the twenty-first century.

Splatters, Smears, and Smileys Collide in Michael Reafsnyder's New Paintings

8 September 2015

The canvases of California-based painter Michael Reafsnyder pulsate with energy. Layers of abstract marks bear the traces of their making as paint is directly applied from the tube, weaving together to create dense, intricate topographies. It’s not always easy to enter the work: one must follow multiple strands of color before a narrative opens up and the viewer is absorbed by the sensual space Reafsnyder offers.

NEW NEW YORK: ABSTRACT PAINTING IN THE 21ST CENTURY

4 October - 4 December 2015

A work, futuredpast, by Franklin Evans is included in a group exhibition, NEW NEW YORK: ABSTRACT PAINTING IN THE 21ST CENTURY, at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

A renaissance of abstraction has recently surfaced cross New York. The sine qua non of modern art, abstraction fell out of favor in the late twentieth century with the emergence of postmodernism and its concepts of paradox, pastiche and deconstruction. But at the beginning of the twenty-first century, abstraction has arisen from the ashes of its professed death with a power and potency rivaling its inception. This phenomenon and the reasons for its resurgence are considered in NEW NEW YORK: Abstract Painting in the 21st Century.

Does the sea have a door?, is there a house with no room?, are there words without letters?

These are some of the questions that my son Romy asks me. He has no idea how much his thinking influences me, a thinking that is not yet rooted in the limited possibilities that life inflicts on us, even the most poetic of us.

Letters without words, yes, of course. James Joyce took the furthest right? Finnegans Wake, an unreadable book that has stretched works and letters to the fullest. But words without letters? A form with no structure? Just the question as a thought is enough for me.

The New York Times, Hans Hofmann’s Murals Add a Blast of Color to a Muted Legacy

30 July 2015

By Roberta Smith

GREENWICH, Conn. — You have to love Hans Hofmann for his exuberant late-blooming paintings, and for his eponymous art school, which formed one of the foundations of Abstract Expressionism. His paintings are, fittingly, usually seen as part of that heroic art movement, even though they replace its existential undercurrents with a stylistic capriciousness that sifts through European modernism with abandon.

COOL HUNTING, Interview: Artist Guy Yanai, Exploring the painter's processes and travel-driven inspirations

27 July 2015

By Ari Samuel

Artist Guy Yanai straddles the fine line between classical painter and contemporary hyphenate. The 35-year-old, Tel Aviv-based artist’s works often depict the whimsical trots of his globe: sailing in the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Italy, bunkering down in the French countryside amidst sun-drenched fauna and terra cotta-roofed houses; or simply harnessing a keen observation and infatuation with the small moments of life that we tend to neglect, but can influence us in a big and prominent way. All of these influences, and more, are deftly enveloped into an original and signature style for which Yanai is known—a style that has garnered the attention of some of the world’s leading art galleries, collectors and fashion brands.

ART REPORT, Guy Yanai’s Pixelated Style Brings Classic Painting Into The Modern Age

29 July 2015

By Liz Von Klemperer

Guy Yanai’s pieces fuse the placid landscapes and still lives of traditional painting with a pixilated style inspired by retro computer graphics.  His solo show Ancienne Rive at the Ameringer McEnery Yohe gallery features fifteen new paintings in which Yanai uses fragmented stripes of color to demonstrate the interplay between the past, present, and future of art, as well as his own sense of displacement.

23 July 2015

Guy Yanai's fragmented stripes are paralleled by thick, vivid colors and banal subjects. "Ancienne Rive," meaning ancient river, calls upon ideas of history, authenticity, and something with deep roots, which contradicts the artist's self proclaimed feelings of loneliness, foreign alienation and the notion of being both nowhere and everywhere.

16 July 2015

Hours before he was to board a plane home to Tel Aviv, I sat with Guy Yanai in the middle of Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe in Chelsea, encircled by a selection of his light-infused paintings. Each of the pieces consists of stacked, horizontal stripes of pigment, as if their scenes were viewed from behind a subtle scrim of blinds. Although he’d been in New York for less than a week, for the successful opening of “Ancienne Rive,” the solo show of new paintings that surrounded us, Yanai told me he was ready to return to his studio and to painting—to the work that most fulfills him.

Guy Yanai's Thoroughly Modern Ancient Paintings

8 July 2015

The young Israeli artist Guy Yanai is obsessed with borders — the way the paint touches the edge of a canvas; the liminal spaces between people and between people and places. “The show is really about edges between many things,” he says of his solo exhibition “Ancienne Rive,” which opens tomorrow at the Chelsea gallery Ameringer McEnery Yohe. Like much of his previous work, the 15 new paintings Yanai created for this show convey the everyday: sailboats, the sea, plants, a quiet lawn and a horseback rider are meticulously painted in vibrant horizontal stripes. “It’s not really clear where they are, or what space they are,” says Yanai. “They’re nowhere, and in that sense it’s really a very synthetic kind of work.”

Guy Yanai

Guy Yanai

Exhibition A

Guy Yanai created an edition of 50 archival pigment print's for Boat With No Sailors.

Guy Yanai abstracts mundane objects, landscapes, and architecture through decisive brush strokes applied in measured, horizontal stripes–the result: brightly colored compositions that remind us of Jonas Wood and David Hockney. In Boat With No Sailors, Yanai imposes geometric order on a familiar subject to create a succinct and pleasing representation of a sailboat gliding on water. Guy Yanai's solo exhibition Ancienne Rive opens Thursday, July 9 from 6-8pm at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe Gallery in Chelsea.

Artsy: Contemplating the Layered Abstraction of Patrick Wilson

1 July 2015

Patrick Wilson’s paintings—a number of which are now on view at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe in New York—benefit from a slow, prolonged, and introspective viewing. Precise compositions of squares and a considered rhythm of colors beckon the viewer past the painting’s surface and into a space that grows more and more palpable. Like some of life’s greatest pleasures, the appeal is visceral: “I want the paintings to be seductive like a really good meal and really good wine,” he recently told Artsy.

Pre-Verbal Painting is the first Midwestern solo museum exhibition of Israeli-born, Los Angeles-based artist Liat Yossifor—featuring all new work made specifically for CAM. Visually recalling the aesthetics of cave painting and the child-like act of finger painting, Yossifor’s work is abstract, yet viewers may discern recognizable symbols within it. Her gestural approach produces an impasto surface that records her physical act of art-making.

Wallpaper Magazine, On the edge: Guy Yanai to showcase new extraordinary paintings of the ordinary everyday at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe in New York

9 July - 14 August 2015

By Ali Morris

Appearing like pixilated images, brightly coloured weavings or even needlepoint, Guy Yanai’s oil on linen paintings depict simplified interpretations of the everyday painted in meticulously applied strokes of colour. From pot plants to sail boats, the artist paints ordinary still life subjects and sun-soaked landscapes but in a way that makes them current, gliding the brush across the canvas, one line at a time.

By Ed Schad

It is worth pausing, at least for a moment, to think of the differences between Monique van Genderen’s four super-large paintings in the opening gallery of Susanne Vielmetter and the paintings of the era about which van Genderen is pointedly thinking: the broad and massively scaled canvases of Abstract Expressionism. Notably, the limitations of the studio set parameters of van Genderen’s paintings. The canvases are so large that she was forced to work on them both on the floor and on the wall, not knowing what they would look like when stretched and extended at Vielmetter.

May 2015

By Shana Nys Dambrot

Artist Iva Gueorguieva arrived in the US as a teenager 26 years ago, somewhat accidentally. Her family urgently emigrated from their native Bulgaria in the wake of Communism's fall, but their flight to Canada was diverted to Washington, DC, by a freak storm—so they settled in Baltimore instead. "People see a violence in my work that they think references life in Europe, but honestly, Baltimore in the 1990s was pretty intense!" She attended art school in Philadelphia and lived for a long while in New Orleans, before settling in LA about ten years ago. She had left New Orleans two months before Katrina, and she knows that the perception of violence comes partly from that, too—though in fact, it is a violence done to art historical conventions and complacent iconography rather than to characters in settings. Her post-Katrina series was called Talisman Debris, hearkening to witchcraft, reliquary, and destruction. On a personal level, this represented a reconciliation of her "survivor's guilt" for escaping Katrina, which resonated deeply with her experience leaving Europe as well. All of this and more she still carries with her.

A Lesson in Geometry By Jean Cohen

Listen to Patrick Wilson, see his new paintings in Chelsea (at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe) and take away some art history. What Wilson has done for 20 years—works of elegant color, flatness and right angles—may seem, at first, the offspring of other art born out of geometry since the mid-20th century. But paintings by Wilson look like no one else's.

Between the Eyes @ Crosstown Arts in Memphis, TN

7 May 2015

By Paul Behnke

From the Press Release:

Crosstown Arts is pleased to present "Between the Eyes," a group show about contemporary abstract painting and how we see it.

Just as the relationships of pitch and duration can express emotion in music, the formal relationships of hue, value, shape, and placement can collect to create meaning in abstract painting. Featuring the work of six painters exploring distinct modes of abstraction, the exhibition examines the way each artist uses deliberate choices to engage us in the experience of looking. Formal cues such as gesture, color and the use of found objects prompt us to recognize patterns and attribute meaning to certain behaviors. Physicality contends with the pictorial as we both decipher and project meaning into the space of abstract forms.

"Between the Eyes" at Crosstown Arts

30 April 2015

By Eileen Townsend

I once took an art history class for which we were required to buy a textbook called Living With Art. The teacher joked that it made art sound like a terminal disease, like the cultural equivalent of Living With Heart Failure. It was funny and unfortunately apt: Critical and curatorial discussion around art too often feels like people whispering at a funeral. It is a task to not get sucked into all the morbidity.

Art Review: Sublime exhibit of abstraction hits right ‘Between the Eyes' at Crosstown Arts

By Fredric Koeppel

I rarely visit an exhibition from which I wish I could take every piece home, but that’s the case with “Between the Eyes,” a show featuring work by six artists of the abstract at Crosstown Arts. That fantasy leaves aside considerations of cost — prohibitive — and of wall space, which is precious at our house. Curated by Laurel Sucsy, who includes two of her paintings, the show, spare in size and arrangement yet generous in result, will be displayed through May 16.

NEW YORK TIMES: A Connecticut Exhibit Highlights the Murals of Hans Hofmann

13 May 2015

NEW YORK TIMES

By David W. Dunlap

GREENWICH, Conn. — There are several ways to appreciate the work ofHans Hofmann, an exuberant Abstract Expressionist who influenced generations of artists.

You could bid on a Hofmann at Christie’s. Just be sure to come with tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. You could pick up a monograph, at no small cost. The Met has a number of Hofmanns on display, but the museum will suggest that you pay $25 to get in.

Alternately, you can take a stroll down West 49th Street in Manhattan, between Ninth and 10th Avenues, any day. Free.

There, along the ground-floor facade of the former High School of Printing, is a boldly scintillating 64-by-11½-foot mosaic mural designed by Mr. Hofmann and executed brilliantly in 1958 by L. Vincent Foscato of Long Island City, Queens.

New York’s treasury of public and semipublic artwork is so rich that it sometimes takes an out-of-town institution to remind us what we’ve got. In this case, it is the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Conn., which has opened an exhibition called “Walls of Color: The Murals of Hans Hofmann,” curated by Professor Kenneth E. Silver of New York University.

The colours emerge from the depth of the image.

One of the great stories of the modern painting is about the liberation of the colour from the object represented, and the development of its own materiality. This story had its heyday in Europe in the mid-20th century. Back then, Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier and Emil Schumacher mixed colours with sand, plaster and other compact materials, and in USA, Jackson Pollock and Morris Louis let the paint drip onto and run down the canvas.

Artillery Magazine by Eve Wood

16 April 2015

Tam Van Tran’s newest exhibition “Exodus” at Susanne Vielmetter represents a meditation on duality wherein forces in nature collide with our own human frailties. These paintings accelerate our sensibilities as colors push forward and break apart, yet it is the tension between materials that is most compelling. The small, fragile ceramic vessels that reference military and funerary formations, “the family units of historical figures in Vietnam,” stand in sharp contrast to the energy and movement of the large-scale paintings. The past conflates with the present and intimates the future much like the Buddhist deity Kala, who embodies the elements of time and death within a feminine form, suggesting rebirth.

Iva Gueorguieva: Cosm in Sculptures

Widewalls

20 April 2015

One of the main advantages of sculpture is its possibility to express multi-dimensionality. Of course, there are techniques in painting aiming to represent multiple dimensions. Iva Gueorguieva is a contemporary artist whose paintings are characterized by extraordinary techniques with the goal to represent variable-dimension worlds. She experiments with cutting and collaging the surfaces of her paintings in order to explore the shallow yet real space produced by the cut and the glued edge. Working with sculpture was a natural step in the practice of Iva Guoeorguieva, deeply involved with the productive tension between the materiality of paint and support, and the possibility of illusory or “only-perceived” space. Finding ways for expressing the “materiality” in space is inherently related with sculptures. One of the main features of sculptures is its three-dimensionality that largely eases the positioning of subject-matter in space and time. The latest series of paintings and sculptures by Bulgarian-born artist Iva Gueorguieva will be exhibited at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe in New York.

Without attempting to exhaust the theme, this exhibition reveals treasures that have been preciously guarded in French institutions since the end of the 19th century. The photographic relationship between Brazil and France becomes even more intense nowadays, as proven by the important collection of contemporary Brazilian photography at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, represented here by a few examples which have Rio as a theme.

Rio, certainly a French passion, but also a passion of photographers from all around the world, and one that FotoRio and MAR are proud to share.

Postcards from the End of the World: Brian Alfred’s Colorful, Cautionary Tales

Painter and digital artist Brian Alfred presents the world as a series of flattened fragments. Working from photographs, the Brooklyn-based artist digitally creates compressed, simplified images that capture the energy and anxieties of the modern world. Highway overpasses, empty offices, cityscapes, and even public figures’ faces are reduced into planes of flat color, which the artist carefully paints in taped-off portions, creating crisp images that sit somewhere between the handmade art of paintings, cartoon-like animation, and mass-produced perfection. His latest series, on view in a new show at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, takes automobile racing as its point of departure.

The solo exhibition will feature new images by Brian Alfred based around the exploration of automobile racing, his cropped abstract works capturing everything from the excitement of the cars and racing through to the global investment elements of companies that contribute the money to the races by including representations of oil slogans in his images. The exhibition at Ameringer | McEnery | Yohe, who last year presented a show of work by Wolf Kahn (see more in this video), sees Brian Alfred capturing small slices of time that aim to capture the emotions of watching the races.

The Canadian-born, Los Angeles-based painter is a master colorist who fetishizes the brushstroke to striking effect. For this exhibition of recent paintings she opted for a kind of reverse working method. Instead of creating sketches and studies for a larger painting, Van Genderen made the large work first and endeavored, on six smaller canvases, to recreate sections of that painterly abstraction that were as true to the original painting as possible. The small-scale “copies” could theoretically be reassembled to ape the original piece.

In the painting, two teenage girls are riding a bike oblivious to the cloud of smoke behind them. It was that kind of summer for Bartlett, who worked on the painting in his second-floor studio in the old Swift textile mill on Sixth Avenue. Things seemed to be going well, but he says he sensed impending doom. It struck when his 27-year-old son, Eliot, died suddenly. Recently, Bartlett sat down with Ledger-Enquirer reporter Chuck Williams to discuss his life, his work and his difficult summer.

THEGRASSISALWAYSGREENER is the title of the exhibition of Linnenbrink´s most recent works at Max Estrella Gallery (the second in this space).

Colors move us. Very few people are capable of viewing the colors that surround them with indifference. They may stimulate or pacify; they can trigger unpleasant states of mind or pleasant sensations. For Goethe, seeing colors was an experience based on reciprocal energies between nature and the observer. It was a phenomenon that did something to the observer, something linking a man´s innermost being to the world around him via the detour of the seeing eye.

Helen Frankenthaler (American, 1928–2011) had her first solo exhibition at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in 1951, an exhibition that synthesized the most radical aspects of works by Arshile Gorky, Willem de Kooning, and Jackson Pollock, with ambitious canvases of textured surfaces, pale color, and calligraphic drawing. The following year, with Mountains and Sea, 1952, she created another kind of painterly space by staining unprimed canvas with oil paint while allowing telltale signs of drawing to remain.

The Bilbao Fine Arts Museum is pleased to announce Hyperrealism 1967-2013, an exhibition with works by Davis Cone, among others.  The exhibition will open on 7 October 2014 and be on view through 19 January 2015.

In the late nineteen-sixties, a group of artists made a name for themselves in the United States by using photography as a basis for painting everyday scenes and objects with extraordinary realism. They gelled into what became known as the Hyperrealist movement, which took flight at the 1972 Kassel Documenta and remains airborne today.

Art=Text=Art: Private Languages/ Public Systems

20 September 2014 - 11 January 2015

Art=Text=Art: Private Languages / Public Systems has been re-curated for UB Anderson Gallery by graduate students Sarah JM Kolberg, Cat Dawson, and Maddie Phinney, under the direction of Jonathan D. Katz, Director of the Doctoral Program in Visual Studies at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York. This new presentation explores the advent of language in the visual arts in post-war America and the simultaneous emergence of concrete poetry. These practices embraced language’s ability to carry multiple, even contradictory meanings, thus creating a space for individual acts of anti-conformist thought. Through words in art, flirtations with ideas unauthorized by then-dominant socio-political realities were allowed expression, especially among an early generation of LGBTQ artists.

Variations: Conversations in and Around Abstract Painting

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 24 August 2014 – 22 March 2015

In an attention-compromised age when images are instant and prevalent, abstract painting serves as a contradiction, acting as a conduit for the mark of the original, individual artist. While most of the work in the exhibition has been recently created and acquired, additional paintings culled from LACMA’s collection illustrate how artists have reanimated techniques and forms using other sources that are appropriated from popular culture, photography, and collage, essentially creating a new variation of abstract painting.
