André Kertész at Stephen Bulger Gallery: Top 10 Exhibitions to Watch

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 6, 2014

André Kertész

Places and Things

 

Through February 22, 2014


 

Photographic master and icon André Kertész made introspective work that mirrored his persona, drew out the character of his subject, and questioned the existence of all things.  The work is profound and concise.  It is spiritual too, and each frame feels full of something undefinable. 


The exhibition includes some classics: Chez Mondrain, Paris, 1926Mondiran's Glasses and Pipe, Paris, 1926 and Fork, Paris, 1928; as well as a nice selection of graphic cityscapes, dramatic still lives and interiors, and a few never before seen late works from the Estate.  Smoke in Toronto, 1979 is an almost mirrored image of a factory and is shadow; New York [interior w/ drop cloths], 1975 is rough and haunted; and a group of SX-70 Polaroids are surreal and surprising.  

 

Stephen Bulger Gallery has represented the Estate of André Kertész since 2003.  The exhibition draws from various periods of Kertész's oeuvre.  The grouping represents in whole a sampling from the artist's life in Hungary through 1925, to Paris 1925-1936, and finally to new York where he lived until his death in 1985.  Together these works reveal the genius and sentiment of a man and the moments he saw that one could never articulate in words.

Artist's Opening Reception: Paulette Tavormina at Robert Klein Gallery

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 6, 2014

Black and Bloom

 

Exhibition Dates:  February 8 - March 29


Artist's Opening Reception:

Saturday, February 8 

 

Also exhibiting at Ars Libri

Opening February 7

 

 

"Everything seems poised between voluptuousness and rot, at once gorgeous and doomed."  

                                                                                                 - Vince Aletti, The New Yorker

 

 

Paulette Tavormina's work walks the line between life and death, coming and going. Her work has a real pulse on organic cycle.  This exhibition showcases old and new works by the artist.  Tavormina draws inspiration from 17th century Old Master still lives and 17th and 18th century botanical drawings; these influences have driven her Natura Morta and Botanical series respectively, and samples of both series will be on view in Black and Bloom.  Tavormina's works are painterly and precise.  Roundly lit crystal clear frames are bold and dramatic.  A black background makes colors feel more rich and full, and a lovely rhythm causes the eye to dance and flow through the scenes.  It is hard to look away from a frame our eyes become so perfectly engaged.

 

Where Natura Morta embraced traditional aspects of still life painting, Botanical explodes tradition.  Flowers and insects scatter and it is as if we are looking at a traditional arrangement deconstructed.  Still, we find ourselves satisfied.  Our eye is free to wander and flow through the scene and the power to the elements holds.  While not as "classic" as the Natura Morta work Botanical operates on a similar plane, becoming contemporary counterpart in the tradition of the still life.  

 

Tavormina's photographs are in museum, corporate, and private colletions and have been exhibited in Paris, London, Moscow, Lugano, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Boston, and Chicago.  

 

Ars Libri and Robert Klein Gallery:

In June 2012,  Robert Klein Gallery began a long-term collaboration with Ars Libri, the rare and out-of-print bookdealer, to host satellite installations in the South End bookstore.  Exhibits at Ars Libri supplement the gallery shows with additional works and printed material.

Artist's Opening Reception: David Goldes at Yossi Milo Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Electro-graphs

 

Exhibition Dates:  January 30 - March 8, 2014

 

Artist's Opening Reception:

Friday, January 31

6:00 - 8:00 pm

 

The work of David Goldes melds science and art, technology and history.  In this his forth solo show with the gallery Goldes presents his Electro-graph series of graphite drawings and photographs.  Works are based on scientific electrical experiments.  The series was sparked by a fascination of pioneering experiments done by Humphry Davy and Michael Faraday that were conducted before the invention of photography; Goldes, who has an MFA in Photography from the Visual Studies Workshop at SUNY Buffalo, an MA in Molecular Genetics from Harvard University, and a BA in Biology and chemistry from SUNY Buffalo, was curious to investigate drawings made of Davy and Faraday's experiments.  With the use of household items like notebook paper, water glasses, razor blades, and scotch tape, Goldes attempts to verify and recreate these early experiments.  What results are magical, mystical frames that have a strong sense of geometry and line and speak to human curiosity and innovation.  Goldes makes the electrical current he experiments with visible; he applies charge to graphite drawings, causes the element to travel through water, or shimmer on thread.  Photographs are made of these investigations.  

 

These works speak as much to scientific history as art history.  A particularly special image, Charged Threads Tied at Both Ends, is a lovely arching series of strings confined in a box.  These easily connect to the scientific experiments, but for some may go further to formally reference some of the late work of Jasper Johns that also employ arching thread or twine.

 

Advanced concepts of technology are raised and their conflict with such rudimentary materials is what makes the work exciting and fresh, as if we the viewers are on our own quest for knowledge.  We also experience a collapse of time and consider the distance we have come since these early experiments.
