      Ouroboros

      222 Main Street
      Germantown, NY 12526
      August 2, 2019 - August 25, 2019
      Valeska Soares creates poetic works that fuse and expand upon the languages of post-minimalism and conceptual art. The installation "Ouroboros" (2014) maps the relationships between time and space. The work’s title refers to the symbolic representation of a serpent swallowing its own tail—a metaphor for wholeness and infinity. Soares replaces this mythological act of consumption with a golden pocket watch (in Portuguese, the word for gold is ouro) that is suspended from the ceiling by a delicate wire. The watch executes an almost imperceptible rotation in space, turning at the speed of one revolution per hour. Deprived of its hour hand, which Soares removed, the clock loses its function of offering a reference to a specific moment in the day. Instead, it attests to the inexorable passing of continuous time.

      Fields of Color II

      745 Fifth Avenue
      New York, NY 10151
      May 25, 2019 - August 23, 2019
      YARES ART is pleased to present Fields of Color II, an exhibition of major Color Field works, on view in New York, May 25 - August 23, 2019. Presenting works by Morris Louis, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, and Helen Frankenthaler, innovative artists who used pouring and staining techniques in expansive compositions that changed the course of twentieth-century painting. Also on view are works by contemporary artists, including Larry Poons and Penelope Krebs, who continue to redefine Color Field and expand the expressive possibilities of abstract painting today. Featured in this exhibition are important examples of paintings by Hans Hofmann, the Abstract Expressionist maestro, whose works such as Opulence (1954) and Setting Sun (1957), included in the show, had a lasting impact on the Color Field painters. Rounding out the roster of celebrated Color Field classics are Gene Davis, Friedel Dzubas, Howard Mehring, and Thomas Downing. Among the show's many highlights are Louis's 1961 "Stripe" painting, Third Element; Olitski's brilliant Z (1964), with a magenta orb and a dramatic band of green pulsating against a searing yellow ground; and Poons's panoramic Hunch (2018). At nearly five-by-twenty-five feet, this resplendent work is one of the largest and most spellbinding compositions that the artist has created. With a tour-de-force of painterly acumen, Poons presents an arresting play of color, light, and movement that offers a vital link between Color Field's history and future, a fitting denouement of the exhibition Fields of Color II.

The exhibition features a selection of historic illustrations and recent drawings, as well as never-before realized large-scale sculptures and a new wall drawing, based on schematics Burga created in the 1970s.

      New Paintings on Paper

      260 Utah Street
      San Francisco, CA 94103
      September 3, 2019 - October 12, 2019
      Hosfelt Gallery presents a solo show of new mixed media paintings on paper by Kolkata-born, New York-based Rina Banerjee, as an ancillary exhibition to her touring mid-career survey, currently on view at the San Jose Museum of Art. Banerjee’s sensuous and otherworldly paintings reflect both her transnational background and her mastery of materials and image-making to examine and describe the complexities of 21st century globalism. Delicately rendered in inks, metallic leaf and collaged elements, female figures float in worlds both fluid and ambiguous. They’re dislocated, detached and in states of transformation — sometimes shifting between human and bird or beast. She spins narratives relating to colonialism, environmentalism, immigration and identity, poetically tackling the big issues from the perspective of a woman of color.

       
    • Reed Danziger

      To Sweep the Horizon

      260 Utah Street
      San Francisco, CA 94103
      September 3, 2019 - October 12, 2019
      Reed Danziger thinks of herself as a researcher, documenting the scene of a disruption in an imagined time and space. Her artworks take the form of large-scale paintings on paper, in which she develops a vocabulary of mark making using watercolor, ink and graphite to record moments of flux. In some of these paintings, she captures explosive instants frozen in time. In others, she represents continuously flowing energy. The resulting “imagery” is both fast and slow, filled with flashes of momentum and moments of calm, and reveals evolutionary layers of process that speak to the relationship between the fluid and the fixed. Though completely abstract, the paintings are metaphors for transition, be it scientific, cultural or personal. In each piece she uses the representation of something unseen – energy – as a symbol for the human effort to understand and cope with things that are ultimately unknowable and outside our control.

      July 10, 2019 - August 31, 2019
      Modernism is pleased to present its first one-person exhibition of drawings by Los Angeles-based artist Laurie LIPTON. “In intricate drawings, Lipton seductively leads us into the drama of a fun house world where technology has gone wild. Her artistic vision is unique in contemporary art and can be easier associated to the apocalyptic cinematic vision of Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER (1982) and Terry Gilliam’s BRAZIL (1985)”. —Robert Flynn Johnson, Curator Emeritus, Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco Lipton’s work presents unflinching commentary on the complexities of modern life, both in society at large and for individuals, including the horrors of war, alienation caused by technology, and our “post-truth” world where everything washes over us like fiction. The public is cordially invited to attend an opening reception on Wednesday, July 10th, from 5:30-8PM. To read the full press release please visit our website.

    • Peter Sarkisian

      Videomorphic Figures

      724 Ellis Street
      San Francisco, CA 94109
      July 10, 2019 - August 31, 2019
      Modernism is pleased to present a solo exhibition of recent works by Peter SARKISIAN, a Santa Fe-based new-media artist. All of Sarkisian’s work is grounded in the idea that video, in it’s ubiquitous and most popular form, is an experientially void medium, and that by depriving ourselves of experience in favor of information-based images, we have become unable to grasp the meaning of consequence or to coexist with mutual understanding. His installations therefore attempt to steer the world’s most influential medium back on a collision course with the viewer in order to reintroduce an element of experience to the viewing process. If the filmmaker’s traditional goal is to distract viewers through the suspension of self-awareness, then Sarkisian’s goal is to create a sense of heightened self-awareness by engaging the viewer in constructed environments that blur the line between what is real and what is mediated. "The Videomorphic figures—a phrase Sarkisian coined to describe the video/sculptural hybrid form—are comprised of 3D printed forms onto which animated motions and gestures are projected. Although the robots are noteworthy in part because of their overly cartoon-like compositions, the increasing sophistication of Sarkisian’s projections situates them in a place of the uncanny, where it is easy to reassure oneself at one moment that these objects have not and can never be alive, while still being lured into occasional moments of doubt when the combination of solid form and lifelike motion let us glimpse a world of the future, when actual robots, in the form of charming humanoids will be our near-constant companions." —Dan Cameron, Curator (Excerpt from catalogue essay for the exhibition Sarkisian & Sarkisian, organized by the Orange County Museum of Art, 2014) WATCH VIDEO OF THE VIDEOMORPHIC FIGURES at https://vimeo.com/79895782 The public is invited to attend an opening reception on Wednesday, July 10, from 5:30 to 8pm.

      Under The Elder's Gaze

      1222 Flagman Way
      Santa Fe, NM 87505
      August 2, 2019 - September 28, 2019
      YARES ART is pleased to present Sean Cavanaugh: Under the Elder's Gaze, an exhibition of recent works centered on intimate nature studies. The show appears at YARES ART, Santa Fe, August 2-September 28, 2019. Highlighted here are approximately two dozen of Cavanaugh's precisionist oil-on-canvas paintings and luminous works on paper featuring detailed renderings of trees. Cavanaugh's meticulously wrought compositions are often intimate in scale but expansive and powerful in scope and ambition. "Often trees are the oldest living members of the environment, and some are the oldest life forms on Earth," the artist noted in a recent statement. "It is my hope that my work expresses some measure of their presence, quiet wisdom, and beauty." Cavanaugh's sensitive and astute approach to nature studies conveys an increasing sense of urgency today, as the natural environment becomes ever more threatened by recent attempts to reverse environmental protections throughout this country and abroad. Due to the artist's commanding technical ability, a botanist would be able to easily recognize the various species of trees that Cavanaugh focuses on in his work. However, with his subtle and stunning nuances of tone and texture, Cavanaugh's work, on some level, advances the possibilities of pure painting. The painterly aspect of his endeavor is befitting an artist who grew up surrounded by paintings-those of his mother March Avery, and his grandparents Sally and Milton Avery-all artists whose work reflects a special reverence for nature. Born in 1969, Cavanaugh received a Bachelor of Arts degree in both art and environmental studies from Pitzer College in Claremont, California. Having developed his own inimitable painting style over the years, Cavanaugh has held numerous solo gallery and museum exhibitions throughout the country, most recently at the Lowe Art Museum, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida.
