ELIAS ZAYAT: AFTER THE DELUGE

\n

Exhibition Dates: 14 September & ndash\; 04 November 2015

\n

Opening Reception: Monday\, 14 September 2015\, 6 &ndash\; 9 pm

\n

Green Art Gallery presents After the Deluge\ , a solo show of new works from Syrian artist Elias Zayat.

\n

Elias Zayat is one of the most significant Syrian artists o f the 20th century\, and a key founder of the country&rsquo\;s contemporary art movement. Although he studied in Sofia\, Cairo\, and Budapest\, his oe uvre remains intimately concerned with the history\, terrain\, and psyche o f his homeland. Zayat&rsquo\;s parallel life as an art restorer and histori an is evident in his rich vocabulary drawn from Byzantine\, early Christian \, Sufist\, and popular iconography.

\n

In After Th e Deluge\, Zayat returns to the ancient city of Palmyra\, remembered f or being one of the few places in the region that managed to exist alongsid e the Romans without becoming Romanised. Fittingly\, it is also known as Ta dmor\, or &lsquo\;the town that resisted.&rsquo\; In this\, the city parall els Zayat who\, despite emerging at the height of Pan-Arabist fervour that culminated in the Naksa of 1967\, managed to resist this sweeping aesthetic hegemony to develop his own inimitable visual language.

\n

Here\, Zayat draws from the Mesopotamian\, Babylonian\, and later Bibl ical account of the flood\, which he understands as a metaphor for rebuildi ng a decaying world after its total devastation\, resiting the event in the historical city of Palmyra. The titular triptych\, After the Deluge is presented as plea for peace\, heralded in the epic by a dove bearing an olive branch. Yet in the central panel\, Zayat&rsquo\;s doves find thems elves locked into a suffocating circular dance high above the remains of a decimated town\; a struggle from which it is seemingly impossible to escape .

\n

The only answer seems to be to flee the humanitari an chaos to arrive at a better world\, as seen in the young men of the side panels\, who are poised as if to take flight. The triptych is anchored by a selection from his works on paper\, which form a crucial backbone of Zaya t&rsquo\;s practice. These studies depict the movements of birds\, to prese nt both theoretical and literalised new lines of flight.

\n

Born in Da mascus in 1935\, Elias Zayat studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sofia b etween 1956 and 1960 and the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo. He also majored in art restoration at the Academy of Fine Arts and Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest\, and is one of the founders of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Dam ascus\, where he taught until his retirement. As a painter and icon restore r\, his art is influenced by religious&mdash\;particularly Christian&mdash\ ;and popular iconography. He has published several studies in the history o f art\, iconography and art criticism. Zayat lives and works in Damascus.\n

Fallah&rsquo\;s installation\, &ldquo\;The Care taker\,&rdquo\; is a continuation of his unique brand of portraiture.

\n
\n

The artist creates a three-dimensional picture of his subject\, JCCC journalism professor Mark Raduziner\, through paintings and constructi ons inspired by Raduziner&rsquo\;s possessions\, including his collection o f more than 300 cactus plants\, which has gained him a measure of local ren own.

\n

&ldquo\;An overarching theme of most of my work is: &lsquo\;Ho w do you create an alternative portrait?&rsquo\;&rdquo\; Fallah said in a r ecent interview. &ldquo\;Instead of describing what someone looks like supe rficially\, how do we approach portraiture in a new way?&rdquo\;

\n

Th e central element of his installation is a 12-foot-high sculpture inspired by Raduziner&rsquo\;s collection of lava lamps\, fronted with Plexiglas and mounted on a circular platform. Grow lights illumine the interior\, which is lined with marbleized paper and houses a life-sized painted portrait of Raduziner\, his head\, face and entire upper body entirely hidden beneath w ildly patterned Coogi sweaters.

\n

Raduziner inherited the sweaters fr om his father\; the needlepoint he holds belonged to his mother. Displayed with the painting\, assorted specimens from Raduziner&rsquo\;s cactus colle ction complete this diorama of his life. Fallah extends his unconventional portrayal of Raduziner on the gallery walls\, where he is displaying a mass ive wall hanging created from Coogi sweaters\, large tondo paintings of flo wers and additional cactus plants on specially-made shelves. The shelves in ject his display with an altar-like sensibility.

An early and influential conce ptual photographer\, Kenneth Josephson makes photographs of found and const ructed visual puzzles that demonstrate his alert and often humorous way of encountering the world at large.

\n

His interest in the ways the camera manipulates what we see&mdash\;how it abstr acts space\, compresses three dimensions into two\, divorces subjects from their context and arrests time and motion&mdash\;draws attention to the phy sical act of making a photograph and what that implies. Throughout his body of work\, Josephson's incisive commentary on the curiosities of photograph y as a descriptive medium and our belief in the image places his work at th e vanguard of conceptual photography.

\n

This exhibition features 62 photographs dating from 1959 to 2003\, includi ng his early experimental photographs\, ground-breaking conceptual work and more recent landscapes.

Fritz Scholder once vowed neve r to paint Indians. He claimed he was not an American Indian artist\, but h e was. He claimed his art was not political\, but it polarized the art worl d. For every position he took\, he also explored the opposite perspective.< /p>\n

Super Indian: Fritz Scholder\, 19 67&ndash\;1980\, is a groundbreaking exhibition of more than 40 rarely seen\, monumental paintings and lithographs by the renowned twentieth-cent ury artist. It is the first to explore how Scholder blended figurative and pop art influences to create colorful\, compelling\, and revolutionary imag es.

\n

Though he was influenced by abstr act expressionists including Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline\, as well as painters Francis Bacon\, Francisco de Goya\, and Paul Gauguin\, Fritz Scho lder&rsquo\;s work was purely his own. His art reveals the raw reality of b eing an American Indian.

\n

This exhibit ion draws its title from the iconic painting \;Super Indian No. 2&n bsp\;(above)\, which is one of nine Scholder paintings promised as gif ts to the DAM by collectors and museum supporters \;Vicki and Ke nt Logan. \;It begins with Scholder&rsquo\;s controversial  \;Indian \;series\, started in 1967\, and ends with his 1 980 \;Indian Landpaintings\, which marked a seismic shift in p alette and subject matter.

\n

Visitors t o \;Super Indian \;will be taken on a thematic exploration following the development of Scholder&rsquo\;s style and themes: Early Ind ian series\, pop art\, psychological portraiture\, stereotypes and represen tation and dark\, mysterious subjects. Following its Denver debut\, the exh ibition \;will travel to the Phoenix Art Museum (Feb. 26\, 201 6&ndash\;June 5\, 2016) and the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overla nd Park\, Kansas (June 23\, 2016&ndash\;Sept. 18\, 2016).

An exhibition catalog is available in The Shops and&nb sp\;online.

During the Spanish Colonial pe riod in Latin America (1521&ndash\;1850)\, precious gold and silver were cr afted into elegant jewelry then embellished with emeralds from Colombia\, c oral from Mexico\, and pearls from Venezuela. Wanting to demonstrate their wealth and status\, people were painted wearing their finest dress and elab orate jewelry.

\n

Women were adorned wit h tiaras\, necklaces with pendants\, and prominent earrings. Men proudly di splayed hat ornaments\, rings\, watch fobs\, and chatelaines (decorative be lt hooks) with small tools similar to the modern Swiss Army knife. Priests wore gold crucifixes and rosaries while nuns had miniature paintings of the Virgin Mary and saints crafted into brooches\, called nun&rsquo\;s badges. Inlaid and lacquered chests and boxes were used to store these luxury good s.

Drawing inspiration from art history as well as from the Mexican landscape\, and using old-master techniques\, Gunther Gerzso tr ansformed the materials of the painter&mdash\;&ldquo\;a piece of cloth and a little earth combined with enamel and oil&rdquo\;&mdash\; into powerful e xpressions of emotion. He called his paintings &ldquo\;landscapes of the sp irit&rdquo\; to emphasize that they were expressions of the forces inherent in his homeland&rsquo\;s terrain as well as of the spiritual value he held for the varied topographies of Mexico and its pre-Columbian history.
