Christiane Löhr: diffuse
41 East 57th Street, Floor 11
New York, NY 10022
April 19, 2018 - June 22, 2018
Jason McCoy Gallery is pleased to announce its fourth solo exhibition of the German artist Christiane Löhr, featuring a selection of new works on paper and sculptures. Made of either organized plant matter or animal hair that she gathers in nature, Löhr’s sculptures evoke architectural structures and geometric forms of varying complexity. Studying her materials in depth to assess their resistance and elasticity, she assembles them without the aid of anything other than their inherent supporting forces. While the works might appear effortless, light and delicate, they are the results of careful planning. The latter serves to honor each material's unique characteristics while also isolating it from its original context. Here, assemblages made of weeds, seed pods, grass stalks, burrs, horse or dog hair, transform into independent objects, which reflect a larger contemplation of space, structure and light. The same applies to Löhr’s abstract works on paper, which reflect a simultaneous practice. “To me, line and space cannot be divided”, she explains. "On the contrary, they depend on each other. Drawing a line on an empty piece of paper feels like cutting space and dividing it into sections.” Embracing a gestural quality and sense of spontaneity, Löhr’s works on paper manifest as an ongoing investigation of the interplay between translucency and opacity, biomorphic form and geometric rhythm.

Thomas Downing
Spot On
745 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10151
May 12, 2018 - August 6, 2018
YARES ART is pleased to present Thomas Downing: Spot On, a major exhibition on view in New York, May 12 - August 6, 2018. American artist Thomas Downing (1928-1985) created an extraordinary body of work in the 1960s and '70s, featuring large-scale abstract compositions of pulsating patterns of colorful dots. Born in Suffolk, Virginia, Downing studied at the Pratt Institute in New York. He became a leader of the Washington Color School, or as it is often referenced, the Washington, DC, Color Field Movement. Downing, along with artist colleagues including Morris Louis, Gene Davis, Helen Frankenthaler, Howard Mehring, and Kenneth Noland (his teacher and mentor), experimented with expansive abstractions, often using staining techniques, to create immersive and transcendental realms of color and light. Downing's unique contribution to twentieth-century art consists of mesmerizing canvases filled with precise arrangements of dots in varying sizes and tonal values. In his series "Dial," "Grid," and "Dot" paintings, Downing produced evocative abstract images that suggest movement as well as an infinite space founded on rigorous, mathematically based geometric systems. Downing's work however is intuitive, intense, and highly expressive, rather than coldly formulaic, as his meticulous process might imply. The handmade nature of Downing's work, the paintings' subtle irregularities revealed in the sprays and faint haloes from soaked paint around his circular shapes and in the grids, solidify the idea that the effects of structure and color were more important to him than precise execution. This extraordinary exhibition features over eighteen major paintings that are among the best of Downing's career. Thomas Downing: Spot On is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by noted writers Raphael Rubinstein and Mollie R.Berger, and an introduction by David Anfam, that situate Downing's work within the context of the turbulent era of the 1960s, with its progressive experiments in psychology and science, as well as the work's relevance and importance within the contemporary arts scene today. Thomas Downing's work is held in major museum collections, including the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena; the Phillips Collection Washington, DC; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Rena Bransten Gallery is pleased to present "The Portrait Show," a group exhibition exploring portraiture from traditional to non-traditional approaches in a range of media including photography, painting, sculpture, and works on paper. This exhibition will include works by Robert Arneson, John Bankston, Dawoud Bey, Jonathan Calm, Rupert Garcia, Jennifer Greenburg, Leiko Ikemura, Oliver Lee Jackson, Eirik Johnson, Bovey Lee, David Linger, Hung Liu, Martin Mull, Tameka Jenean Norris, Raymond Pettibon, Naaman Rosen, Thomas Ruff, Peter Saul, Tracey Snelling, Lava Thomas, Tara Tucker, John Waters and Henry Wessel, among others. This diverse grouping of works spans the humorous to the somber, nodding to the rich history of the portrait while aiming to expand its boundaries. Several works in the exhibition challenge the notion that a portrait should feature a face or figure. Naaman Rosen’s "Letters: A Portrait of a Family" consists of scanned letters sent from his mother, the words “Love You” stretched across a lined note pad in one, news of his brother’s imprisonment in another. Tameka Jenean Norris’ "Office Hours" is a photograph of a cup of tea and an art history book, the artists’ toes barely visible at the edge of the frame. Bovey Lee’s cut paper work "Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker" is a photo transfer of the artist’s own immigration paper work, incised with sea imagery. Some artists in the exhibition use themselves as subject, but not always in the vain of self-portraiture. Jennifer Greenburg works with vernacular found photographs, but replaces the subject with herself, blending cultural narratives with the personal. Jonathan Calm uses his own body in "Double Vision: (Recording I)," but the work expands beyond the self-portrait: his vulnerable figure lies on the pavement, a camera lens in his mouth recording footage of police brutality against black bodies. Complimenting these non-traditional approaches are more traditional portraits. In some, artists render other artists in what feel like gestures of mutual admiration – Robert Arneson of Viola Frey, Rupert Garcia of Picasso, and Henry Wessel of Dennis Gallagher. In others, the artist looks directly at his subject, as in Dawoud Bey’s close-up portrait "Girl with a Knife Nose Pin," or directly at themselves, as in Thomas Ruff’s "Self Portrait."

2018 is the bicentennial of Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. Why does a 200-year-old ghost story continue to feel so relevant? It’s important to remember that the Frankenstein of Hollywood and pop culture – Boris Karloff, The Munsters or Rocky Horror Picture Show – is quite different from the novel. Beyond the fact that the tale has captured popular imagination, the novel’s lasting impact is grounded in the fact that it is a parable about human nature. And the most important question it asks is who is the real monster? The exhibition begins, as it must, with contemporary artists looking at the body and our attempts to conquer death; advances in science and technology; the animation of objects or machines and artificial intelligence. Thence comes an examination of ambition that outstrips the ability to understand or control what we’ve created and finally, what happens when we don’t take responsibility for the consequences of our actions. Central to both the novel and the curatorial stance of this exhibition is the failure to feel empathy for the ostensibly unlovable — the other. Who is to blame for the rage born of feelings of rejection and how do we expect that anger to play out in society?
