The gallery is pleased to announce Treasure Rooms, a body of work from Mauro Fiorese, the artist's debut exhibition in the United States. In this ongoing series Fiorese grants a glimpse into the unseen depths of some of Italy's most prominent museums including the Uffizi Gallery and the National Gallery of Modern Art.

Artist's Opening Reception: Maroesjka Lavigne at Robert Mann Gallery

Posted By Administration, Sunday, March 30, 2014
Island

Exhibition Dates:  April 3 - May 17, 2014

Opening Reception with the Artist:
Thursday, April 3
6:00 - 8:00 pm

This exhibition, Island, marks Maroesjka Lavigne's first solo show at the gallery.  The young Belgian photographer spent four months driving across Iceland.  There is something straight and direct to her shooting.  An underlying structure holds her frames, which at times can appear flat, even stark, but always they are lined with a sense of awe or uncanny.  The simple moments become magical.  Lavigne brings us a range of images including landscapes, still lives, and portraits, which together weave an overarching vision of place as a whole.  In the time the works were made winter melts into spring, and while snow is almost a constant there works by no means lack color.  In fact, color pops from her frames and adds a bold richness to her scenes.  

Maroesjka Lavigne holds a Master in Photography from the Ghent University.  The Island series has won a LensCulture New & Emerging Photographers Grand Prize, and was shown in the 2012 Photo Academy Awards, and the Unseen Photo Fair in the Netherlands.   Lavigne's work has also been featured in the New York Times Style Magazine, Aesthetica Magazine, and the FOAM Magazine Talent issue.

Artist's Opening Reception: Wijnanda Deroo at Robert Mann Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Rijksmuseum

 

Artist's Reception:

Thursday, February 20

6:00 - 8:00 pm

 

Exhibition on view through March 29, 2014

 

The work of Dutch artist Wijnanda Deroo clean and balanced.  It is crisp and elegant; simple and layered; empty and charged.  She seeks overlooked spaces, forgotten spaces, and this series, Rijksmuseum, documents nearly 10 years of work on the renovations of Holland's most renowned museum.  Formal balance is a tool we find Deroo using often and always to our satisfaction.  This reinforces a subliminal sense of stability, history, and monumentality.  The quality of light is soft and round and the palate painterly; together this reinforces connectivity and wholeness.  Works feel critical and important.  They are both saving an instant and watching as it and layers of time passes.  Artifacts and art works; construction spaces and builder's markings; storage rooms and galleries are among Deroo's subjects.  Time collapses in an instant and we consider the craftsmen and curators, artists and historians who's hands have made and touched these works.  We think also of the workers and patrons that have and will pass these halls.  We linger in this still preservation and look onto Deroo's scenes wanting to hold the moments that flood through our fingers like sand.
