Founded by Tarrah von Lintel almost 30 years ago, Von Lintel Gallery has continually developed its discerning curatorial point of view. The gallery predominantly features painting, photography and unique works on paper that are forward-thinking and challenging while maintaining a strong sense of aesthetic tradition. Focusing on a selective roster of artists who quietly push the boundaries of medium and materiality, the gallery exhibits art that will continue to engage the viewer over time. 

Tarrah von Lintel began her career in Paris, working first with Galerie Claire Burrus and then Thaddeus Ropac before opening her own gallery in Munich in 1993. Her gallery featured many NY artists, some of whom she continues to represent today, leading to her move to NYC’s growing Chelsea district in 1999. After 15 successful years in NY, the gallery relocated to Los Angeles, in recognition of LA’s growing importance on the international art scene. 

Von Lintel artists have shown or placed work in important public collections, among them The Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art; The Whitney Museum of American Art; The Getty Museum; The International Center of Photography; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the High Museum; The Getty; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art; and Londonʼs National Gallery of Art.

Current Exhibitions

Joseph Minek

Rewind



April 24, 2022 - June 4, 2022
Von Lintel Gallery is thrilled to present Rewind, an exhibition of vibrant chemigrams created by Cleveland-based artist Joseph Minek. This show will be displayed in the Project Room and will run from April 23rd until June 4th. Fascinated by the infinite possibilities of camera-less photography, Minek experiments with the foundational materials of photographic practice – light-sensitive paper and photo lab chemicals – to produce one-of-a-kind, chromatically exuberant images. His work delights in exploring the physical makeup of the photographic medium itself, rather than capturing any external reflection of reality, so he first exposes his high-gloss metallic paper to light – rendering it useless for its intended purpose. Strips of paper are then organized into compositions on its surface before he rolls, dips, squeegees, or sprays his prints with a variety of chemical compounds. The resulting works are infinitely varied and wildly luminous. Within a prismatic array of chartreuse, fuchsia, emerald, indigo, cyan, mustard seed, mauve, lavender, and blood orange, the overlapping pools and striations of the chemicals in the tray leave their traces not only in the explosive palette but in the intricate patterns and oil-slick parabolas, which the liquid traces and eventually settles on. Minek’s work has been exhibited consistently since 2010 and is held in public collections such as The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Rubell Family Collection in Miami, New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Bidwell Projects, Cleveland.

New Paintings



April 23, 2022 - June 4, 2022
Von Lintel Gallery is delighted to present new work by New York artist Mark Sheinkman, whose long association with the gallery spans almost 30 years and has translated into an incredible 15 solo shows. His latest exhibition will debut on April 23rd and be on display until June 4th. For over three decades, Sheinkman chose to limit his palette almost exclusively to densely layered compositions of graphite. Only in recent exhibitions has his focus shifted to color, resulting in multi-hued paintings, whose exuberant entwined figures express both spontaneity and a progressive reduction in form. His latest work features “all over'' fields of monochrome color, populated by single trails of knotted lines that glide languidly across the canvas. Comprised of finely gradated shades of light and dark and adjoined by echoes of pale color, these lines evoke a three-dimensional depth. Meanwhile, spiralling purple or blue-white trails of partially removed paint reel on and off the edges of the canvas, engendering in the viewer an intoxicating impression of otherworldly space. In his 2021 catalog essay, George Melrod notes that “Sheinkman’s works inspire multiple allusions. Over the years, they have suggested microscopic photographs of minerals, bones, proteins, tendrils, corals, coiling strands of DNA, or, ascending like Charles and Ray Eames’ Powers of Ten, everything from the darting trails of subatomic particles to maps of astronomical events. They are notable for their elusive scale; encountering them, a viewer might feel they’ve entered another realm, of physical forces beyond our human gauge.” Sheinkman is a New York based artist and received a B.A. from Princeton University. His work is included in permanent collections at home and abroad, such as MoMA, The Met, and The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Museum of Prints and Drawings in Berlin, Germany, and Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, France.
