Exhibition on view through September 21, 2014


This exhibition pairs the work of two artists represented by Julie Saul Gallery- photographer Tanya Marcuse and sculptor Christopher Russell.  Both artists use the still life to explore the dualities of nature.  

Tanya Maracuse's work is painterly and bold.  It is beautiful and tragic, elegant and imposing.  It is  multi-layered visually and conceptually.  In Marcuse's works the likes of fallen fruit and leaves overlap in rhythmic mesh on the forest floor.  Like signs of the summer harvest these edibles lay over-ripe and decaying, but in this degradation there always exists the seeding of the next generation.  Among the decaying organics are insects and seedpods.  Death and rebirth exist as a unifying force in Marcuse's works and each frame reveals the beauty of nature's force.This exhibition pairs the work of two artists represented by Julie Saul Gallery- photographer Tanya Marcuse and sculptor Christopher Russell.  Both artists use the still life to explore the dualities of nature.  

Tanya Marcuse earned her MFA from Yale; she has been awarded a guggenheim fellowship, exhibited at the ICP Triennial in 2010, and is in such notable collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Yale Art Gallery.
