ArtSlant - Recently added en-us 40 Martin Kline - Heather Gaudio Fine Art - September 17th - November 5th <p><strong>Heather Gaudio Fine Art</strong> is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition &ldquo;Martin Kline: Paintings and Sculpture&rdquo; featuring a selection Kline&rsquo;s new series of white paintings along with other encaustic work and sculpture. This is the artist&rsquo;s first solo exhibition at the gallery which will run from September 17<sup>th</sup> to November 5<sup>th</sup>.&nbsp; The public is invited to attend an opening for the artist on Saturday, September 24<sup>th</sup>, from 5-7pm.&nbsp;</p> <p>Classically trained, Kline&rsquo;s practice went from the figurative to abstraction, evoking natural and man-made motifs infusing cultural and historical notions.&nbsp; As Kline developed his ideas he began to explore with encaustic -- mixing pigment with beeswax.&nbsp; With this malleable material, his paintings were able to take on an exaggerated three-dimensionality not normally found in painting.&nbsp; His earlier works in the show are vibrant feasts of color that make for visually engaging paintings referencing nature. &nbsp;They are so heavily textured they become sculptural and tease the viewer&rsquo;s senses with their tactile qualities. &nbsp;</p> <p>Kline&rsquo;s explorations between two and three dimensional forms took him to cast a selection paintings and other objects into metal.&nbsp;&nbsp; At what point do the works stop being paintings and become sculptures is a question he keeps posing.&nbsp; The exhibition will include sculptures in bronze and steel that reflect this preoccupation and blur the line of distinction between the two mediums.</p> <p>Also on view is a selection of his most recent body of work, the all-white paintings entitled <em>Tabula Rasa</em>, or &ldquo;blank slate.&rdquo; Created on linen, Kline approaches the encaustic differently from his works on panel, allowing it to seep through the canvas on the reverse.&nbsp; While more serene than the earlier structured paintings, these newly orchestrated works rely, to a greater extent, on randomness and chance. Kline&rsquo;s ongoing interest in the physical properties of the encaustic material led him to these fluid and intricate surfaces where the hand of the artist is less evident.&nbsp;</p> <p>Martin Kline has had a prolific career having been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions.&nbsp; His work is in many notable private and public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of Art and the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.</p> <p><strong>Heather Gaudio Fine Art </strong>specializes in emerging and established artists, offering painting, works on paper, photography and sculpture.

The development of South Florida&rsquo;s coastal communities and agriculture has reduced the Everglades in size by half. Now, the ecosystem is at risk, threatening the region&rsquo;s water supply, scientifically - and internationally - recognized subtropical wetlands, and the water rights and ways of life of indigenous and nonindigenous peoples. This exhibition follows water to show how the world&rsquo;s costliest ecosystems restoration initiative is as much a social and cultural project as a scientific one.</p> <p><strong>Museum Hours:</strong> T,Th,F: 11-5 pm, W: 11-7 pm, Sat: 1-5 pm. <strong>Closed Sundays &amp; Mondays</strong>.</p> <p>The Southeast Museum of Photography is a service of Daytona State College, 1200 W.

This new, solo exhibit will be composed of over 20 breathtaking works. Laget&rsquo;s signature shaped painting, and lithographs, though firmly rooted in an art historical context, have been inspired by her life experiences in locations such as Southwestern America, Japan and North Africa.&nbsp;</span><span style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Her recent shaped, abstract, geometric canvases are resolutely illusionistic yet intellectually playful, filled with ambiguous spaces suggesting an expansive aerial landscape, an architectural interior or an urban skyline, while wrapped in highly improvisational and intuitive, lush and sensual color. &nbsp;</p> <p class="normal" style="text-align: justify;">Mokha Laget was born in North Africa. As a graduate of Corcoran School of Art, she met Washington Color School painter Gene Davis. Although inspired by Davis, Laget&rsquo;s unique techniques have successfully showcased her artistic excellence. Her ability to pristinely intertwine colors and shape has been influenced by her expertise in clay pigments. &nbsp;</p> <p class="normal" style="text-align: justify;">The opening reception of <em>Color into Space</em> will take place on Friday, July 29, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. The event is free of charge. Following the opening reception, Laget&rsquo;s artwork will be displayed at the museum through October 30, 2016.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Arcadia Lecture series will feature the artist speaking about her work on September 22<sup>nd</sup>, at 6 pm at the Museum.</p> Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:10:19 +0000
