Klompching Gallery Moves to Street-level in Dumbo, Brooklyn

Posted By Administration, Thursday, July 30, 2015

Inagural Exhibition & Artist's Reception

Max de Esteban:  Heads Will Roll 

 

Exhibition Dates:  September 12 - October 30, 2015

 

Artist's Reception:

Saturday, September 12

6:00 - 8:00 om

 

 

Klompching Gallery celebrates the opening of their new street-level space in Dumbo, Brooklyn with an exhibition of work by Max de Esteban.  The Gallery was established in 2007 and specializes in critical cutting-edge contemporary photography by a roster of established artists who's work "demonstrates creative integrity and intent, originality, narrative and aesthetic challenges, and the highest level of craftsmanship" (Klompching press release).  

 

Max de Esteban's Heads Will Roll draws on source material from the multiple steams of imagery we are bombarded with daily, including images of "war, violence, and disasters" (Klompching press release).  Max de Esteban nods to a tradition of photomontage, and brings the approach into a contemporary realm.  His work draws us in like a moth to the flame; it is visually seductive and enticing.  The more we look, the more we see.  Frames are super-saturated by color and content; they are beautiful but dangerously revelatory, for they underline the frenzied nature of image-streams and the state of mind they establish, often one of looming danger.  In Heads Will Roll layers of many images come together to compose the works; the artist also uses geometric grounds to add dimension, disruption, and connection to the source images.  Together the work establishes a chaotic sense of order; we can pick through the images and selectively engage the whole and the parts they present.  The exhibition is accompanied by a monograph by the same name, Heads Will Roll; it contains essays by curator Carles Guerra and author Bill Kouwenhooven.

Review: Lori Vrba at Catherine Couturier Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 16, 2015

Lori Vrba:  The Moth Wing Diaries

 

 

on view through August 31, 2015

 

 

The work of Lori Vrba is elegant and enchanted.  The self-taught artist employs a traditional approach to photography; knowing Vrba's work is film based and darkroom processed lends a timeless mystique and layers poetics into her frames.  The Moth Wing Diaries exhibition is accompanied by a monograph with the same name.  The prints and the text are intimate and soft.  The work engage symbols we associate with love, femininity, change, family, and growth.  Repeating symbols include moths, butterflies, eggs, feathers, and nests.  We find that her incorporation of flora and fauna reference not only nature but cycle.  Recurring characters are children, adolescents, and at times the flash of grown figures darting from view.  Her inclusion of things like bird cages or jars indicate a desire to preserve.  On the whole, the works speak to transition and encourage pause.  Her frames indeed stop time and feel like halted memories and cherished instants.  This sentiment transcends the frame, and we experience a desire to cherish all of life's fleeting moments.

 

Upcoming Artist's Reception: Saturday, July 11

5:00 - 7:00 pm

Reviewed: William Larson at Gitterman Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 2, 2015

 

Fireflies by William Larson at Gitterman Gallery has received some critical attention in the Daily Serving, the New Yorker, and Collector Daily.  Larson's work challenges the limits of a photograph.  Larson was interested in integrating time into still images.  His process was unusual but certainly rooted the work to time.  It involved a cutting edge device in its day, the Teleprinter.  The teleprinter, an early fax machine, could transmit images and texts onto carbon-based paper over telephone line.  Larson combined dissimilar images and added printing interruptions and multiple- transmissions.  His resulting electronic drawings were layered to create, as Larson put it, "the imperfect operations of memory or dreams" (Gitterman Gallery Press Release). 

 

On view through July 2, 2015

Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery opened 1995 out of a small house in Uptown Dallas with a show of Joel-Peter Witkin and a group show of Latin American artists.  The gallery later moved to the Design District and its current location on Dragon Street.  PDNB Gallery grew with the evolving Dallas Art Scene; the city is now home to a vibrant and multi-faceted arts-community, including a host of galleries, cultural institutions, and the internationally recognized Dallas Art Fair.

 

PDNB Gallery celebrates its 20th anniversary with a show of pinnacle works drawn in the most-part from private collections, including a work from its first show with Witkin, Wife of Cain, and work by the Gallery's most popular artist and Texas-native Keith Carter.  Carter had a memorable sellout show in 1997.  Other notable artists who's work will be on view include Chema Madoz, Esteban Pastorino Diaz, Bill Owens, Marta Maria Perez Bravo, George Krause, Jeffrey Silverthorne, Lee Friedlander, Misty Keasler, Deliah Montoya, and John Albok.

Image Information:

Bill Owens, Richie 1971,  “I don’t fee that Richie playing with guns will have a negative effect on his personality. (He already wants to be a policeman). His childhood gun-playing won’t make him into a cop-shooter. By playing with guns he learns to socialize with other children. I find the neighbors who are offended by Richie’s gun, either the father hunts or their kids are the first to take Richie’s gun and go off and play with it."     | Courtesy of PDNB Gallery
