      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.

      Painters of the East End

      297 Tenth Avenue
      New York, NY 10001
      July 11, 2019 - August 16, 2019
      Kasmin is pleased to announce Painters of the East End, on view at 297 Tenth Avenue between July 11 – August 16, 2019. The exhibition explores the commonalities and distinctions of the work produced amongst the coterie culture of Long Island’s South Fork during the mid-twentieth century, including Mary Abbott, Nell Blaine, Perle Fine, Helen Frankenthaler, Jane Freilicher, Elaine de Kooning, Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Charlotte Park, Betty Parsons, and Jane Wilson. Artists have historically converged on Long Island seeking inspiration from the landscape and an escape from their confined urban studios, while still retaining access to the energy of New York City. With the mass influx of the European avant-garde following the onset of World War II and the subsequent establishment of the New York School, a thriving and collaborative artist-based community was born in the East End. The Hamptons of the New York School was untamed, inexpensive, and a bastion of bohemian living. The opportunities provided by the area’s open spaces were developmental for the painters who set up there not only because of their practical advantages—larger studios, relative quiet—but for novel subject-matter that allowed for contemplations of the horizon, rural landscapes, and bodies of water, nodding to the lineage of the Romantic sublime. Perhaps most crucial for these artists was their shared inspirations which led to a new model of community, differing in both structure and character from the frenetic energy of lower Manhattan. Such a social scene was integral to both the personal and artistic lives of the artists represented in the exhibition. Helen A. Harrison, Director at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton, says of the period: “The painters who gravitated to Long Island's South Fork in the mid-twentieth century were a far more varied group than the earlier art colonists, who came primarily for the picturesque scenery. They ran the gamut from landscape painters to Surrealists, Abstract Expressionists, and Pop artists, so it's clear that many were motivated by factors other than subject matter. Perhaps even more important than the beautiful surroundings and the ease of access from New York City was the magnetism of association, as artists attracted one another to form a vibrant creative community that continues to thrive today.” The exhibition includes: Mary Abbott (b. 1921), Nell Blaine (1922 – 1996), Perle Fine (1905 – 1988), Helen Frankenthaler (1928 – 2011), Jane Freilicher (1924 – 2014), Elaine de Kooning (1918 – 1989), Lee Krasner (1908 – 1984), Joan Mitchell (1925 – 1992), Charlotte Park (1918 – 2010), Betty Parsons (1900 –1982), and Jane Wilson (1924 – 2015).

      Domenick Turturro uses line and color to create joyous, energetic fields of abstraction. Recalling artists such as Mark Tobey and Jackson Pollock, Turturro has a layered approach that blurs the boundary between foreground and background, while he creates a sense of depth with his luminous colors.

      'Dot, Point, Period': a Curated Installation by Joseph Kosuth

      24 West 40th Street
      New York, NY 10018
      April 4, 2019 - July 20, 2019
      Castelli Gallery, 24 W 40th Street, is pleased to present ‘Dot, Point, Period’: a Curated Installation by Joseph Kosuth. Since the 1960s, Kosuth has used the “curated installation” as a key conceptual/aesthetic strategy for exploring questions of authorship and the basic nature of art. ‘Dot, Point, Period’ will be the first time such an installation has been displayed in New York City since Kosuth’s seminal, The Brooklyn Museum Collection: The Play of the Unmentionable was exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1990. ‘Dot, Point, Period’ focuses on the dot or period as a graphic form that marks out a visual space and in so doing defines meaning in both written language and art. By punctuating intervals that delimit thoughts and also indicate moments of rest—pauses for the intake of breath—the period indexes the cadence of oral speech within text. Similarly, in art, the dot, fragment, or stroke registers visual continuities and ruptures that establish significant relationships between the constituent elements of an image. In this respect, the dot-form functions as a useful aid for shaping and coding meaning in both visual and verbal mediums, yet its rules are not essentially fixed in either. When considered independently from the structures of grammar, syntax, or composition, the dot’s semantic value remains indeterminate, awaiting the contextualizing framework of a given text or image. Consequently, the dot’s significance derives from its use, determined by convention and repetition, by what is built through and around it. The dot registers the influence of context in determining the significance of its component forms.

      Featuring paintings and works on paper dating from Rivera’s studies in Paris and extensive travels through Italy before returning to Mexico to lead the Mexican Mural Renaissance. Included in this exhibition will be a drawing of a surgical operation that Rivera witnessed in Paris in the clinic of Dr. Jean Louis Faure, selections from his 1920-21 Italian sketchbook, and lively market scenes and studies of children and indigenous “tipos mexicanos.” A highlight will be the tender 1935 portrait of Delfina and her son Dimas; Delfina modeled for the artist and became part of his household in the 30’s when he was married to Frida Kahlo. Supplementary material will include “Vigil” an important, rarely seen 1929 painting by José Clemente Orozco, which was included in his first show in New York at Alma Reed’s Delphic Studios. This work was cited in “The Art News” as one of the best paintings in the show.

      1275 Minnesota Street

      June 29, 2019 - August 17, 2019
      Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present our second solo exhibition with Bay Area photographer Lewis Watts. With a keen interest in both historical and contemporary representations of people in the African diaspora, this exhibition includes portraits of artists, activist, authors, and musicians along with his photographs of historical, archival objects. An avid traveler with an acute interest in people, Watts collects images everywhere he goes. His subjects are usually aware of his presence, and his engagement with them is paramount to the work. Watts' photographs challenge the proliferation of negative images of black people propagated by news outlets, instead asserting a sense of “Black Joy,” a reference to the Black Joy Parade where he has taken many of his portraits. Through this work, Lewis pays homage to an exhibit of photographs compiled by W.E.B. Du Bois at the 1900 Paris Exposition that sought to counteract prevailing racist caricatures. Like Frederick Douglass, Du Bois recognized the power of photography in shaping public opinion. Included in this grouping are works which continue Watts’ interest in the archive which began during a 2016 residency at The Amistad Center for Art and Culture in Hartford, CT. Watts’ work aims to look at the history of representations of African Americans, the motivations of the authors of those representations, and the narratives they wish to assert. Lewis Watts is a photographer, archivist/curator and Professor Emeritus of Art at UC Santa Cruz. He is the author of “Harlem of the West: The San Francisco Fillmore Jazz Era” (2017) and “New Orleans Suite: Music and Culture in Transition” (2013). His work has been exhibited at and is in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA; the UC Berkeley Art Museum, CA; he Citè de La Musique, Paris, France; the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, LA; the Oakland Museum of California; and the Amistad Center for Art and Culture, Hartford, CT, among others.

      Robert Minervini: Future Collapse

      1275 Minnesota Street
      San Francisco, CA 94107
      June 29, 2019 - August 17, 2019
      Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present our third solo exhibition with Oakland based artist Robert Minervini. Presented in conjunction with the unveiling of his large mosaic mural at SFO, organized by the San Francisco Arts Commission, this exhibition continues Minervini’s exploration of human intervention in the natural world. In these works, screen printed California cityscapes and landscapes are backdrops to arrangements of stenciled classical Roman sculptures, cacti and succulents, Etruscan urns, and Egyptian figurines, all placed on shelves inside tiled vitrines. It is a proposition that both honors and disrupts traditions of still-life and landscape painting: are these objects relics of the past, objects of the present, or possibilities of the future? Are the vitrines transparent, or tiled with photo decals? A sense of dislocation and disorientation begins to seep in as forms and landscapes are repeated throughout the work, often silhouetted to further disassociate from their real-world counterparts. These objects are disconnected from any cultural significance, reminiscent of a Cabinet of curiosity, and Minervini's natural spaces are only facsimiles of nature. This constructed world is as familiar as it is foreign. Robert Minervini works in painting, drawing, printmaking, murals, and site-specific public art. His work examines spatial environments and notions of utopia in large-scale cityscapes, landscapes, and floral still-life arrangements, all of which address the ecological impact of humanity. Minervini’s works are in the collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, La Jolla, CA and the San Jose Museum of Art, CA, as well as numerous corporate collections, including Facebook, and public collections, including the San Francisco Arts Commission, CA and San Francisco General Hospital, CA.

      June 29, 2019 - August 17, 2019
      Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present Book project: a silent conversation, our first exhibit with multi-media artist Yen-Hua Lee. This installation of small works on paper is part of an ongoing series in which Lee draws on the pages of antique books she has collected. Through the stories found on the book’s pages, Lee imagines a silent conversation with writers of the past as she offers to these pages her own visual narratives. An interest in sequencing and the passage of time draws her to the medium of books, though in this context each page offers its own story – there is no beginning and no ending. Dealing with memory and ideas of home both real and imaged, these saturated ink drawings are both playful and somber, and reminiscent of the way written words, whether spoken or read, slowly congeal in our minds to create images. Originally from Taiwan, Yen-Hua Lee graduated in 2002 from the National Art University of Taiwan. She received an MA from the University of Dallas in 2004 and an MFA in 2007 from Northern Illinois University. She is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships and her work has been shown internationally in over 25 solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions, including shows at the Dallas Contemporary, TX; National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan; China Ceramics Museum; Inside-out Art Museum, Beijing, China; Katonah Museum, NY, Chelsea Art Museum, New York, NY; Korean Culture Center, New York, NY; Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan; Taiwan Yingge Ceramic Museum; and Aomori Contemporary Art Centre, Japan.

      Bernard Lokai: New Paintings

      260 Utah Street
      San Francisco, CA 94103
      May 11, 2019 - July 3, 2019
      Opening reception for the artist: Saturday, May 11 from 3 – 5 PM In two distinct bodies of work, German painter Bernard Lokai explores the seemingly infinite possibilities of paint applied to canvas. The first body of work, which he calls Landscape Blocks, is comprised of grids of 12 x 16 inch panels in which he both refers to and disrupts the history of painting. Each panel is a stand-alone abstract work. Some of them clearly allude to recognizable conventions, techniques or even specific artists, while others undermine those connections and still others have no recognizable precedent. He then arranges (and sometimes spends years rearranging) them into grids of 18 to 33 components, which together form the impression of a landscape. The tension between abstraction and representation operates as a metaphor for philosophical examinations of appearance and disappearance, permanence and impermanence, creation and destruction. Individual large canvases form the second body of work. These make room for bold expressions of color and mark-making and often combine multiple painting techniques within a single work. From sprayed neon acrylics to thickly applied, gestural brushstrokes in oil, Lokai’s purpose is neither to express emotion nor reference a particular subject. Rather, his practice ceaselessly probes the traditions and tropes of painting in unbounded pursuit of latent meanings and potential. Bernard Lokai was born in 1960 in Bohumín, Czechoslovakia. After his parents escaped from the former Czechoslovakia, Lokai grew up in Düren, Germany. He studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Gerhard Richter and now resides in Düsseldorf.

      YARES ART is pleased to present FLETCHER BENTON: A to Z, on view in Santa Fe, June 7–July 27, 2019. This extraordinary exhibition surveys and honors the long and distinguished career of Fletcher Benton, an iconic American sculptor. The Ohio-born, California-based artist, now 87, burst upon the art scene in the 1960s with a series of kinetic sculptures incorporating elements of light that were among the most advanced experiments in sculpture of the day. He went on to produce remarkable abstract compositions in metal that were, and remain today, powerful visual statements that are both elegant and intellectually engaging. On view in the exhibition are some sixty major works that span Benton’s six-decade career. Many pieces on view have never been shown in New York, offering the rare opportunity to reassess the achievement of one of the country’s most inventive and consistently challenging artists, whose formidable contribution to contemporary art has been recognized internationally. Among the show’s highlights are the provocative kinetic works from his “Synchronetic” series, which early on in his career brought him critical acclaim. The mesmerizing orchestrations of light and shadow, as well as the evolving movement, inherent in these pieces have connected him with the West Coast Light & Space movement. Also on view are the sophisticated, thematic “Alphabet” sculptures, whose exuberant geometry addresses issues of language and abstraction in a novel and colorful way. In addition, the graceful compositions in steel, such as the monumental Stainless Steel Donut No. 5 (2012), and a number of various series are included in the exhibition, relating to Benton’s numerous commissions for large-scale public pieces. These works demonstrate the meticulous, innovative craftsmanship, which has been a hallmark of the artist’s work throughout his career. Born in Jackson, Ohio, in 1931, Benton studied at the Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. In 2008, he was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement in Sculpture Award from the International Sculpture Center, Hamilton, New Jersey. He currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Benton’s work is included in many prominent public and private art collections throughout the world, including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Fletcher Benton is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by David Ebony.
