San Francisco, CA 94107
June 23, 2018 - August 18, 2018
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."

Shawn HUCKINS
Fool's Gold
724 Ellis Street
San Francisco, CA 94109
July 11, 2018 - September 8, 2018
Since construction was completed in 1800, the White House has served not only as home to each successive US President, but also as a repository of American history, preserved in portraits and landscapes collected by the White House Historical Association. The collection contains iconic works ranging from Gilbert Stewart's famous portrayals of George Washington to Albert Bierstadt's epic scenes of the American frontier. For the contemporary American artist Shawn Huckins, who straddles the divide between traditional figurative painting and bleeding-edge digital culture, the archive is a provocation to consider how the past is treated today and how history might be remembered in the future. The eighteen paintings in Fool's Gold, Huckins' second solo exhibition at Modernism, mash up past and present by imagining masterpieces in the White House collection to be as ephemeral as Adobe Photoshop files. Meticulously repainting works by Stewart and Bierstadt, as well as Charles Wilson Peale and William Merritt Chase, Huckins 'updates' them by simulating digital erasures: The artist selectively replaces portions with patches of gray-and-white checkerboard identical to the pattern that Photoshop users see when they delete sections of digital photos. "The underlying works chosen for this series originally served as testaments of those who came before us and the indelible mark they left on the world," Huckins explains. "In an era where the internet makes everyone a publisher, and digital editing tools bestow the power to create realities out of pixels, these works examine our assumptions regarding the longevity of individual influence and institutions". For instance, in Nothing Rhymes With Orange (George Washington, Erasure No. 5), Huckins has excised George Washington up to his eyes. Evoking the crisp visual language of Minimalism, the perfect square made by his deletion contrasts with the sweeping scribbles of erasure defacing Bierstadt's epic Rocky Mountain Landscape in The Most Beautiful Place Is Far From Here (Rocky Mountain Scene, Erasure No. 16). The latter may be interpreted alternately as a nod to the loose brushwork of Abstract Expressionism or as a reference to the calligraphic marks of graffiti art. Huckins crafts these paintings entirely by hand in acrylic on canvas, working from archival images stored on the White House Historical Association website. He uses techniques perfected in his last series, exhibited at Modernism in 2016, which juxtaposed classic American paintings with textual overlays harvested from Twitter. (For example, George Caleb Bingham's 1847 Raftsmen Playing Cards is overwritten with the words EVRYTHING IS HILARIOUS N NTHING IS REAL.) Writing about Huckins' previous series in Art Ltd., the critic Michael Paglia has observed that "the refined sensibility of the original paintings sets up extreme contrasts to the vulgar world of our own time, which is laid bare by the meanings inherent in the inserted text." Huckins' conceptually-motivated collisions build on Pop Art and the appropriations of Pictures Generation masters such as Richard Prince, and his painterly use of text has earned comparisons to Ed Ruscha. Refining ideas about technology and historical continuity introduced in his earlier text-based paintings, Fool's Gold also represents an important conceptual leap for the artist, opening up a whole new range of questions. "If individual legacy can be expunged, how enduring are the concepts that spawned this country?" asks Huckins. "How will the current day be recorded, judged and preserved when anyone can create, or re-create, his or her own reality with a keystroke, or a mouse-swipe, or a dead-of-night tweet?" SHAWN HUCKINS (born 1984, Laconia New Hampshire) currently lives and works in Denver, Colorado. His work has been exhibited nationwide. The public is cordially invited to attend an opening reception on Wednesday, July 11th, from 5:30-8PM. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CALL: 415/541-0461 / FAX: 415/541-0425, OR EMAIL TO: INFO@MODERNISMINC.COM. HI-RES IMAGES AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.

 
Mark ULRIKSEN
Something in the Air
724 Ellis Street
San Francisco, CA 94109
July 11, 2018 - September 8, 2018
Reception for the Artist Wednesday July 11 from 5:30-8 PM Modernism is pleased to present its second one-person exhibition of works by San Francisco-based artist Mark ULRIKSEN. Ulriksen’s varied interests are often the subjects of his artworks, be it politics, people, animals, or sports, or simply capturing the essence of a Sunday stroll in the park. His instantly recognizable portraits and whimsical take on life have led to now 60 covers of The New Yorker magazine, where he has been a regular contributor since 1993, alongside other greats such as David Hockney, Maira Kalman, Jean Jacques Sémpe, Saul Steinberg, Art Spiegelman, and Barry Blitt. Twenty paintings and works on paper will be on view, including Slippery Slopes, which made the February 26, 2018 cover of The New Yorker. “Sports can be an opportunity for some of the world’s most talented to leap to their freedom,” Ulriksen says about his cover, inspired by the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. In Strike Zone (featured on the May 1, 2017 cover of The New Yorker) Ulriksen revisits the 100-year-old Yankees-Red Sox rivalry, along with the recent push for computer umpires. “There’s drama inherent in every pitch,” says Ulriksen about the baseball season. “For the next six months, there’ll be a cast of characters,” he says. “You follow your team with the kind of rapt attention that you would a good book. When fall comes, you get a grand finale. Last year (2016), it all went to the Chicago Cubs. This year, who knows?” Ulriksen’s inspirations range far and wide, from the twisted outlook of Mad magazine and Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons of his youth, to the line work of picture-book artist Miroslav Šašek; and all the way to Flemish storytellers like Rogier van der Weyden, and photographers like Arnold Newman. Film has also been a great influence on Ulriksen’s work, he explains, “Movies by Billy Wilder, Wes Anderson, and Buster Keaton have given me color palettes, compositions, and a love of dry, deadpan humor.” Mark Ulriksen’s work is in the permanent collection of The Smithsonian and the Library of Congress. He has created murals for United Airlines and the Chicago Bears that grace the walls of the United Club at Soldier Field. He has been the regular artist for the San Francisco Jazz Festival, and his 2006 New Yorker cover parody of the film Brokeback Mountain was named the year’s top magazine news cover by the Magazine Publishers of America. The public is cordially invited to attend an opening reception on Wednesday, July 11th, from 5:30-8PM.

Santa Fe, NM
Milton Avery
Early Works On Paper + Late Paintings
1222 Flagman Way
Santa Fe, NM 87505
July 6, 2018 - September 22, 2018
YARES ART is pleased to present Milton Avery: Early Works on Paper and Late Paintings, on view in Santa Fe, July 6-September 22, 2018. Milton Avery (1885-1965) is a towering figure in twentieth-century art, whose reputation grows more illustrious with each passing year. He developed a unique visual vocabulary inspired in part by European modernism while wholly embracing the American vernacular. Over the years, his work has inspired generations of artists-abstract and figurative painters alike. This extraordinary exhibition features some twenty large-scale oil paintings, including a number of Avery's most acclaimed land- and seascape compositions that he produced late in his career. Complementing these remarkable paintings are about fifty rarely exhibited works on paper from the 1930s, which demonstrate the artist's mastery of watercolor and gouache early in his career. The exhibition presents many well- known works from prominent collections, as well as a number of pieces being shown in Santa Fe for the first time. Among the rarely exhibited gems on view is Hills and Sunset Sky (1964), a luminous masterwork that is the last major painting that Avery completed. Celebrating fifty years of representing the artist's estate, Yares Art is proud to present the gallery's first comprehensive Milton Avery exhibition at its Santa Fe location, after having premiered at its recently established New York venue. Among the many highlights of the show are celebrated masterworks such as the stunning, large-scale marine images Rolling Surf (1958) and Sails in Sunset Sea (1960), which are widely regarded as among Avery's best works. The seascape motif was a favorite for Avery since early in his career. His beach scenes from the 1930s encompass a subtle social commentary in striking pieces such as Swimmers and Beach Scene; featuring crisp line and luminous color, these images depict working-class people enjoying leisure time at the seashore. Avery never created completely abstract works, but his subtly nuanced landscapes and figurative compositions, especially his late paintings, often approach abstraction. He was a mentor to the Abstract Expressionists, including Adolph Gottlieb and Mark Rothko, and led the way to Color Field painting with the novel tonal play and quietly daring spatial relationships that are important attributes of Avery's oeuvre. During his lifetime he was renowned as an "artist's artist," as he incorporated the language of abstraction into a singular exploration of the figure, landscape, and still life. His work remains fresh, vibrant and more relevant than ever for contemporary art today. Milton Avery: Early Works on Paper and Late Paintings is accompanied by a catalogue with essays by noted scholars and critics Eliza Rathbone, William C. Agee, and David Ebony.
