New Yorker Review: Liz Nielsen at Laurence Miller Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, February 3, 2015

Through Feb. 28. 

 

 

The Brooklyn-based photographer’s vivid new photograms seem equally inspired by the children’s toy Colorforms and by color-field painting Nielsen uses transparent gels to overlap and juxtapose shapes against dark backgrounds; each of the images is unique. At times, the sprightly compositions suggest landscapes, totems, or flags—like the scenery of sophisticated cartoons. In one, big swatches of magenta, pink, purple, and sky blue combine so happily they could dispel any glum mood.

New Yorker Review: Will Brown at Laurence Miller Gallery

Will Brown: A Tender Light

 

through Dec. 20, 2014

 

The Philadelphia photographer makes his New York gallery début at seventy-seven with a richly atmospheric group of black-and-white streetscapes from the mid-nineteen-seventies. Working early in the morning in a neighborhood that had seen better days, Brown focussed on shop signs, commercial façades, and dusty windows that look like velvet in the soft light. A group of children pose before an open hydrant, and three men watch from their spots on the sidewalk, but most of these sites are unpopulated, and many seem abandoned, giving the work a lovely memorial quality, with echoes of both Eugène Atget and Walker Evans.

Review: 30th Anniversary Show at Laurence Miller Galelry

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 24, 2014
Thirty Years Thirty-One Photographers

 Through April 26th.

As this anniversary show draws to a close it receives a nod from This Week in New York.  The exhibition celebrates the 250 exhibitions mounted by the gallery in the past 30 years.  These works explore not only the evolution of the gallery, but of the media itself.  We see history unfolding from the traditional silver prints to large format contemporary works, but that is not all we see.  Miller has organized the works to flow seamlessly one to another with attention given to theme, content, shape, subject and more.  Slight shifts move us forward frame by frame and we experience time unraveling before our eyes.
