Salvatore Mazza

Artist Books by Edizioni Canopo

41 East 57th Street, Floor 11
New York, NY 10022

December 11, 2018 - February 1, 2019
Jason McCoy Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of limited edition artist books by Edizioni Canopo, a small publishing house based in Prato, Italy. Conceived and overseen by Salvatore Mazza, the fifty publications to date mark a unique collaboration between internationally acclaimed artists, including Roberto Barni, Alessandro Bazan, Max Gimblett, Paolo Grassino, Katharina Hinsberg, Christiane Löhr, Luigi Mainolfi, Margherita Morgantin, Marco Neri, Nunzio, Mimmo Paladino, Stephanie Peek, Luisa Rabbia, Pat Steir, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, Tinus Vermeersch, Gilberto Zorio and international writers Nanni Balestrini, Yves Bonnefoy, Alba Donati, Oswald Egger, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Felicitas Hoppe, Mario Luzi, Nico Orengo, Aldo Nove, Edoardo Sanguineti, Barry Schwabsky, Antonio Tabucchi and Andrea Zanzotto, among others. Published in English, Italian or German, each book offers an elegant and intimate rapport between never before published works of poetry or prose, as well as suites of etchings, ink drawings, or collages. In each case, the latter were specifically created by the artists in the printing studio of Edizioni Canopo. Each book is limited to an edition of 35-55. To best present the fine craftsmanship of Edizioni Canopo, the installation at Jason McCoy Gallery will include bound books, as well as single pages mounted on the wall. Edizioni Canopo was founded in 1998 by Salvatore Mazza in Prato, Italy, when restructuring a former textile warehouse from the early 1900s into a publishing house. After a decade of producing finely crafted artist books, Mazza expanded Edizioni Canopo to include exhibition venues, as well as a studio and residency program. Mazza lives and works in Prato, Italy.

Alexandra Penney

Alexandra Penney: Vanishing Portraits

41 East 57th Street, Floor 11
New York, NY 10022

October 24, 2018 - December 1, 2018
ALEXANDRA PENNEY: VANISHING PORTRAITS Jason McCoy Gallery is pleased to present an installation of portraits by Alexandra Penney, capturing some of the most influential individuals in today's art world including museum directors, notable patrons of the arts, and collectors and artists alike. These ghostly portraits allude to Penney's history as a painter, and also speak to the disappearing importance of the arts in today’s world at large (illustrated by multiple proposals to decrease funding for the National Endowment for the Arts), while simultaneously noting the subtle power of individuality even as the surrounding world seems diminished.

Christiane Löhr

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.

Nick Lamia

Nick Lamia: Cloud, Mountain, Valley, Sea

41 East 57th Street, Floor 11
New York, NY 10022

March 8, 2018 - April 13, 2018
Jason McCoy Gallery is pleased to present Cloud, Mountain, Valley, Sea, an exhibition of new paintings, large works on paper, and a site-specific installation by New York based artist Nick Lamia. Exploring concepts of space and various aspects of nature by means of abstraction, Lamia has long employed a language of opposites. His vibrant compositions are characterized by the interplay of translucent layers and opaque shapes, crisp lines and brushed fields, saturated and de-saturated hues, as well as a vocabulary derived from both geometry and biomorphism.
 Continuing to focus on places where nature and society converge or where their co-dependence crystallizes, Lamia’s latest works reflect his thorough investigation of water as life’s most valuable and increasingly precious resource. “Our need for water transcends cultural, socio-economic and lifestyle divisions. Even time is no match for thirst: no matter the era in which one lives, the need for water links us all as humans. It is a common thread stitching together the fabric of life.” Nick Lamia lives and works in New York. Before receiving his MFA in painting from Boston University in 2000, he studied Environmental Science at U.C. Berkeley (B.A., 1994) and painting at the New York Studio School (1996-1998). Lamia was recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003. Recent exhibitions include projects at the Bronx Museum of Arts, New York and the Maine Center for Contemporary Art. Recent residencies and fellowships include I-Park Foundation (2015); Marble House Project (2014), and Wave Hill Winter Workspace Residency (2012). In 2016, Lamia’s work was featured in a solo exhibition at the Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. This will be Nick Lamia’s third solo show with the gallery.

Raymond Han

In Memoriam

New York, NY 10022

February 15, 2018 - March 2, 2018
Jason McCoy Gallery is honored to present a special exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Raymond Han, in memoriam of his life’s work. Though best known for his still lifes, Han’s four decades-spanning oeuvre further includes large bodies of figurative paintings, abstract compositions, and sculptures. It was his unique sensibility for color and finely rendered forms that succeeded in transforming the many objects and objectives of his eclectic interests. This exhibition includes selections that are each touched upon by the characteristics of tranquility and timelessness that remained a consistent undercurrent to Han’s work throughout shifting subject matters and mediums. Raymond Han was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1931. His work is in the permanent collections of The Honolulu Museum of Art, the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute (Utica, New York), The Fenimore Art Museum (Cooperstown, New York) and the Picker Art Gallery (Colgate College, Hamilton, New York), among others. He lived and worked in New York City and Cooperstown, New York until his death.

New York, NY 10022

Jason McCoy Gallery is pleased to present a selection of Contemporary Miniatures by Waseem Ahmed. Based in Lahore, Pakistan, where he received his training at the National College of Arts, he creates finely rendered miniatures that address various social, political and cultural issues, including public violence. To Ahmed, his work marks the attempt "to consistently decry social attitudes that promote suppression, hatred and bloodshed among human beings."
