ArtSlant - Recently added http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/show en-us 40 Peter Williams - NOVELLA - March 13th - April 5th <p>The new work of Peter Williams is in response to the recent and not so recent spate of attacks, killings, and murder of Black people by police across this country. &nbsp;<em>Common &amp; Proper Nouns: The N&ndash;Word&nbsp;</em>is a small body of painted works on canvas.&nbsp; The genesis of a super hero is at the center of this group of works; Police are transformed into pigs and beasts of all kind.&nbsp; The N-Word is the super hero and is open to discussion as to the truths and meanings of the N-Word, which for the sake of the body of work I classify as a Noun.&nbsp; I had overheard someone say, &ldquo; He use&rsquo;s the N-Word as if it were a proper noun&rdquo;.&nbsp; Who are we and for that matter who are they?</p> Tue, 31 Mar 2015 12:45:35 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Group Show - Frieze New York - May 14th - May 17th <p style="text-align: justify;">Demonstrating Frieze&rsquo;s commitment to discovery, a new addition to the 2015 fair is <strong>Spotlight,</strong> a section advised by curator&nbsp;Adriano Pedrosa dedicated to solo artist presentations of work made in the 20th century. Previous iterations of Spotlight have been shown at Frieze Masters in London, and the New York edition will share the same impulse to expand understanding of the 20th century by exploring unexpected positions from established artists, new research into artists from emerging territories and significant early work from overlooked artists. Rasheed Araeen (Aicon Gallery, New York), Lynn Hershman Leeson (Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco &amp; Waldburger Wouters, Brussels), Howardena Pindell (Garth Greenan Gallery, New York), Carolee Schneemann (Hales, London) and Ibrahim El-Salahi (Vigo, London) are all included in the first New York edition of Spotlight.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Adriano Pedrosa said: &lsquo;After three editions of Spotlight at Frieze Masters&nbsp;in London, the section arrives in New York. The focus remains in the 20th century, with a particular emphasis on the 1960s and 1970s, and a strong presence of women artists and artists working outside Europe and America. Spotlight New York brings diversity and plurality to insular vantage points and there seems to be much ground to cover for future editions.&rsquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Spotlight Exhibitors</strong><br /><br />Aicon Gallery, New York Rasheed Araeen<br />Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco Lynn Hershman Leeson<br />Galerie Herv&eacute; Bize, Nancy Andr&eacute; Cadere<br />David Castillo Gallery, Miami Beach Rafael Ferrer<br />espaivisor, Valencia Hamish Fulton<br />Henrique Faria, New York Anna Bella Geiger<br />Garth Greenan Gallery, New York, Howardena Pindell<br />Hales, London Carolee Schneemann<br />Ivan Gallery, Bucharest Geta Bratescu<br />lokal_30, Warsaw Natalia LL<br />Franklin Parrasch Gallery, New York Joan Snyder<br />Galeria Nara Roesler, S&atilde;o Paulo Antonio Dias<br />Richard Saltoun, London Shelagh Wakely<br />Vigo, London Ibrahim El-Salahi<br />Waldburger Wouters, Brussels Lynn Hershman Leeson<br />Z&uuml;rcher, New York Regina Bogat</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>New Opening Days</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Wednesday, May 13: Invitation-only Preview<br />Thursday, May 14 &nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Friday, May 15 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Saturday, May 16 &nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Sunday, May 17 &nbsp; &nbsp;11am - 6pm</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Ticket Types&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Tickets are limited.

The program is presented with BMW and curated by Cecilia Alemani. Premiering in the VIP cars, the Frieze Sounds program is also accessible inside the fair via a listening station located between D21 and D22 and is streamed online at friezeprojectsny.org</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Alicja Kwade</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Grosses C </em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Alicja Kwade&rsquo;s installations are often pervaded by repeated industrial noises which render palpable the frenetic energy of ticking clocks and spinning tops, even when her exhibited objects seem outwardly still. For Frieze Sounds, Kwade presents a sound work composed by a collage of 200 cutouts taken from movies, recording the moment in which actors &ndash; mostly women &ndash; see a diamond and react to it with a mixture of joy, surprise and lust.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Xaviera Simmons</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>&nbsp;Number 18 </em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Xaviera Simmons works in performance, photography, video, sound and installation. For Frieze Sounds, Simmons has crafted a newly scored audio work where language builds an in-between landscape; where multiple languages are in a movement that recalls a repetitive wave like gesture between and in-between the territory of the sailor and the siren.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Sergei Tcherepnin </em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Metal Mixing Water Piano </em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sergei Tcherepnin produces performances and installations incorporating electronic and acoustic sound. For Frieze Sounds, the artist made a collage of re-recorded piano improvisations he made in the last 15 years, remixing older degraded tapes in a new compilation where the sound is played through surface transducers attached to brass sheets of various sizes.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>New Opening Days</strong></p> <p>Wednesday, May 13: Invitation-only Preview<br />Thursday, May 14 &nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Friday, May 15 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Saturday, May 16 &nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Sunday, May 17 &nbsp; &nbsp;11am - 6pm</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Ticket Types&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Tickets are limited.

Curated by Cecilia Alemani, this year&rsquo;s program includes sculptural environments and performative spaces involving intricate mazes, intimate hideouts and immersive installations.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">Projects are dispersed both inside and outside the fair architecture &ndash; installed among booths, in common areas, or even hidden within the fair&rsquo;s layout &ndash; interrupting or diverting circulation patterns and the typical flow of events.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">All this year's participating artists share an interest in constructing new spaces, both physical and fictional, where it is possible to relax, play and explore. Together, they invite visitors to plunge into the alternate reality of intimate, temporary installations.</p> <p class="Pa0" style="text-align: justify;">For more information and the full program download our free Frieze New York app from the app store.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Korakrit Arunanondchai</em></strong></p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;"><em>denim massage chairs (growing up together)</em></p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>P1 various locations throughout the fair</strong></p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;">Korakrit Arunanondchai creates immersive environ-ments where viewers can lose themselves in a multisensory space. A series of high-tech massage chairs positioned throughout the fair welcome visitors, allowing them to relax and take a break from the dizzying pace of the fair. Upholstered with the artist&rsquo;s signature material &ndash; bleached denim &ndash; the chairs function as a place of rest and contemplation for which the artist has also realized an hypnotic sound track, based upon a conversation he and his twin brother had at Frieze London 2014.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">In collaboration with Korapat Arunanondchai and Harry Bornstein.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Pia Camil</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Wearing &ndash; watching</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>P2 close to A1</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Inspired by H&eacute;lio Oiticica&rsquo;s <em>Parangol&eacute; </em>&ndash; a series of capes, flags and banners to be worn as &lsquo;habitable paintings&rsquo; &ndash; Pia Camil&rsquo;s project functions as a portable environment.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A series of wearable fabrics designed by the artist and produced in collaboration with Mexican artisans are distributed freely to fair visitors. Camil&rsquo;s fabrics allow for versatile uses including clothing &ndash; such as robes or ponchos &ndash; and more utilitarian functions &ndash; such as picnic blankets, tablecloths and sheets. Camil&rsquo;s textiles require direct participation, quietly emphasizing the characteristic experience of the art fair, where the act of looking at art is as important as the act of looking at others and distinguishing oneself from them.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Samara Golden</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Always smile at the mask of hate for it covers a sad face</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>P3 outside the fair, under the tent towards the North entrance</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Samara Golden&rsquo;s project unveils the different physical, social and psychological components of the art fair. For Frieze Projects, Golden built a secret room underneath the tent that is only visible from the outside. The hidden chamber is tiled with mirrors and features a sculptural environment that integrates the tent&rsquo;s infrastructure including its supporting pillars, air conditioning pipes and electricity cables, which all become part of the work.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">As in an archeological site, Golden&rsquo;s installation reveals the underbelly of the fair, which is usually invisible to fairgoers.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Aki Sasamoto</em></strong></p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;">Coffee/Tea</p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;"><strong>P4 between B55 and B56</strong></p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;">Aki Sasamoto realized a three-dimensional version of a personality test assessed via multiple-choice questionnaire. A maze-like structure built within the grid of the galleries&rsquo; booths, Sasamoto&rsquo;s project consists of several rooms in which viewers face a choice between two objects or situations. Various choices lead through to a succession of rooms and doors and eventually to the exit, where participants discover which personality best suits the course of action they selected.</p> <p class="Pa1" style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong><em>Allyson Vieira</em></strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Colossus</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>P5 outside the fair&rsquo;s North entrance</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Visitors are greeted by Allyson Vieira&rsquo;s colossal installation. Inspired by archeological sites of antiquity, the artist installed a series of monumental blocks evoking a gigantic fallen column. However, unlike its classical predecessors, Vieira&rsquo;s column is made of an unusual material: compressed bales of plastic and foam sheeting. These blocks are a 21st century commodity, a new raw material, made for export to China where they will be reprocessed into plastic consumer goods for sale in American big-box stores. Vieira&rsquo;s sculpture evokes the survival of classical forms even in the most prosaic of realities, while acknowledging the inevitable degradation of materials over time.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Tribute to the <em>Flux-Labyrinth </em>(1976&ndash;2015)</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>P6 between D12 and the restaurant</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Frieze Projects 2015 pays tribute to the <em>Flux-Labyrinth, </em>an immersive environment originally conceived by George Maciunas in collaboration with many other Fluxus artists including Larry Miller, Nam June Paik, Ay-O. For this tribute, alongside new reconstructions of some of the original interventions, a group of contemporary artists has been invited to create new sculptures and situations within a maze structure made from several narrow corridors and rooms. Obstructions and hurdles turn the experience of traversing the space into a joyful and surreal exercise. The tribute to the <em>Flux-Labyrinth </em>forms a diverting obstacle course, taking viewers on a journey through the most remote folds of the fair.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>New Opening Days</strong></p> <p>Wednesday, May 13: Invitation-only Preview<br />Thursday, May 14 &nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Friday, May 15 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Saturday, May 16 &nbsp;11am - 7pm<br />Sunday, May 17 &nbsp; &nbsp;11am - 6pm</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Ticket Types&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>Tickets are limited.

The fourth edition of the New York art fair will bring together over 190 of the world&rsquo;s leading contemporary galleries, with 63&nbsp;participants from the fair&rsquo;s host city. For the fourth consecutive year, Frieze New York is sponsored by Deutsche Bank</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Once again the fair will take advantage of its East River location and innovative structural design to showcase the most exciting contemporary galleries from around the globe. The 2015 fair introduces Spotlight, a new section for participating galleries that has been a critically acclaimed feature at Frieze Masters in London. Advised by curator Adriano Pedrosa, Spotlight will appear alongside the existing Frame and Focus sections of the fair as well as the celebrated Projects, Talks, Sounds and Education programs.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp commented: &lsquo;The fourth edition promises to be the best yet, with a new section and some of the most well- regarded galleries joining an already strong list. We&rsquo;re delighted that Frieze has been embraced by both the local gallery scene and the city alike and the introduction of Spotlight to New York this year should underline Frieze&rsquo;s long- standing commitment to discovery. We&rsquo;re looking forward to this year&rsquo;s fair, our last as Directors, and handing over to Victoria Siddall, who is taking&nbsp;over the directorship of Frieze New York.&rsquo;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Participating Galleries</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">With a particularly strong showing of local galleries this year, those new to Frieze New York include: Acquavella (New York); Blum &amp; Poe (New York/Los Angeles), Clearing (New York/Brussels), JTT (New York), Matthew Marks Gallery (New York); McKee Gallery (New York); Pace (New York) and Skarstedt (New York).</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">At the same time, the 2015 edition of the fair will feature a strong global reach with galleries from 33&nbsp;territories including: Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Lebanon,&nbsp;The Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Poland, Romania, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, UAE, UK and the USA.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Spotlight, Frame and Focus</strong></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Demonstrating Frieze&rsquo;s commitment to discovery, a new addition to the</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">2015 fair is <a href="http://www.artslant.com/ny/events/show/378865-frieze-new-york-2015---spotlight" target="_blank"><strong>Spotlight</strong></a>, a section advised by curator&nbsp;Adriano Pedrosa dedicated to solo artist presentations of work made in the 20th century.

This exhibition features large-scale paintings, made between 2013 and 2015, which revel in the complexity of Lee&rsquo;s process and composition; they are visually complex, almost three-dimensional, dynamic abstractions.</p> <p>Whereas Lee&rsquo;s previous paintings tended to suggest movement through deep space, or whirlwinds of swirling motion, her recent paintings also reference observations from nature. With titles such as &ldquo;Retribution (Bud),&rdquo; Loose Rocks,&rdquo; &ldquo;A Storm of Sorts,&rdquo; and &ldquo;Bloom,&rdquo; she sets her context clearly and emphasizes nuances in the subject and medium. &ldquo;Loose Rocks&rdquo; is informed by her passion for rock climbing. For this painting she worked from memory and photographs, from crude drawings of photos, with additional imagery referencing graphic novels. Clearly these are not movements toward realism, but are rather a truly ambitious reach, developing a sensitivity regarding the subjects. Her intent is an expressive understanding that&rsquo;s powerful, through a subjective eye that doesn&rsquo;t require a definitive answer or an esoteric conclusion.</p> <p>Several of these paintings examine the process of the destruction of structure. The worlds contained within them are being taken apart piece by piece, layer by layer. &ldquo;Retribution&rdquo; and &ldquo;Bloom,&rdquo; whose titles and orientations seem to suggest opposite motivations, or tendencies &ndash; &ldquo;Retribution,&rdquo; oriented horizontally, suggests a blowback and disintegration toward the right side of the visual field, while &ldquo;Bloom&rdquo; is oriented vertically, as if it is exploding into being &ndash; are actually based on the same composition, with the order of the layers reversed. This reversal causes a shift in the depth of field, resulting in an altered spatial experience.</p> <p>In &ldquo;A Storm of Sorts&rdquo; there is an entirely different painting underneath the uppermost layers of opaque and translucent white paint (the storm); the painting underneath is quite vivid but is then muted by the layers on top. This top layer could stand alone but becomes more complex because of the underpainting. When viewed more carefully, additional information and colors are revealed, creating more complexity, more push-pull.</p> <p>Her process initially appears to borrow from action painting but Lee expands upon this intuitive process by using the computer &ndash; an inherently systematic device &ndash; as a tool to develop layers and structures before she applies paint to panel. In doing so, she creates an interesting dichotomy and dialogue between the two, between chaos and order.</p> <p>&ldquo;Making work that appears responsive to its time preoccupies many contemporary painters. Few find a resolution as persuasive as Yoon Lee&rsquo;s.&rdquo; (Kenneth Baker)</p> <p>Yoon Lee was born in South Korea and grew up mainly in Southern California. She received a BA from UC San Diego and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has received numerous awards and residencies, including a Eureka Fellowship from the Fleishhacker Foundation, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, and the Eduardo Carrillo Prize from San Jose Museum of Art and Museo Eduardo Carrillo. This is her fourth one-person exhibition at Pierogi.</p> Sat, 28 Mar 2015 21:29:14 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Cordell Cordaro, Trevor Raab, Jon Schull, Genesse Center for the Arts & Education, Rochester Bicycle Film Festival, Rochester Public Library, University of Rochester Special Collections - Rochester Contemporary Art Center - April 3rd - May 15th <p><strong>April 3 - May 15, 2015

Since <em>What with What,</em> which introduced Wylie to the US audience in 2010, she has received wide recognition, including a solo exhibition at Tate Britain. In 2014, she won the John Moores Painting Prize, one of the foremost art awards in the UK. Featuring a broad selection of works on paper, <em>Girl and Spiders</em> allows insight into how Wylie condenses a vast stream of images and impressions into unmistakably personal drawings.<br /> <br /> In Rose Wylie&rsquo;s work, people, animals and objects - &nbsp;unlabored, but very complete - combine with patches of color and bits of painted text. These elements come from a variety of sources: cinema, newspapers, tabloids, television, art history, and people she meets. Often working from memory, Wylie is not interested in overarching themes or stories &ndash; her focus is on the particular, the detail, the specific visual moment that made an emotional impact and stuck in her mind.<br /> <br /> An important aspect of Wylie&rsquo;s work is her unusual use of paper, which she collages to expand the surface of a drawing, correct it, or emphasize a certain area. By covering &lsquo;mistakes&rsquo; with pieces of paper on which she makes her revisions, she also highlights her process of gradually finding the rendition closest to her recollection. This, along with the immediacy and freedom of Wylie's lines and brushstrokes, conveys a peculiar balance between the casual and the considered. She has the sense to know exactly when an imperfection needs correcting, and when it is just right.<br /> <br /> Rose Wylie (b. 1934, Kent, UK) attended the Folkestone &amp; Dover School of Art until 1956 and received her MA from the Royal College of Art, London in 1981. She has had numerous solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2015); St&auml;dtische Galerie, Wolfsburg (2014); Tate Britain (2013); The Haugar Museum, T&oslash;nsberg (2013); and Jerwood Gallery, Hastings (2012). Gallery solo exhibitions include Choi&amp;Lager Galerie, Cologne (2014); Michael Janssen, Berlin (2013); Regina Gallery, Moscow (2011 and 2012); and Union Gallery, London (2006 onwards). Her work is included in public collections such as the Arts Council of England; Contemporary Art Society, London; Jerwood Foundation; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; Norwich Gallery; Tate Britain; and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. The artist lives and works in Newnham-Sittingbourne, United Kingdom.</p> Sat, 28 Mar 2015 17:46:16 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Eric Roux-Fontaine - Axelle Fine Arts Galerie Soho - May 30th - June 28th <p>The gallery is thrilled to present Eric Roux-Fontaine's&nbsp;3rd Axelle solo exhibition to New York City. After extremely successful solo shows at both Axelle Boston and Axelle Soho,&nbsp;the gallery is excited to receive an all-new collection of work from the French painter.</p> Sat, 28 Mar 2015 16:09:41 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Yves Crenn - Axelle Fine Arts Galerie Soho - April 18th - May 17th <p><strong>AXELLE FINE ARTS GALERIE SOHO</strong>&nbsp;welcomes back French painter&nbsp;<a title="Yves Crenn" href="http://www.axelle.com/artists/yves-crenn/" rel="nofollow">YVES CRENN&nbsp;</a>for a solo exhibition of exquisite new work this spring. UN AUTRE TEMPS, Crenn&rsquo;s sixth solo exhibition at Axelle, will feature stunning nudes, touching still lifes and soulful animal portraits. Although Crenn broaches a wide range of figurative subjects, his paintings are unmistakable due to his unique choice of mediums &ndash; Crenn works with a distinct combination of dry pastels and watercolor on paper, which adds a visceral quality to his evocative paintings.</p> <p>Born in 1969 in Vernon, France, the young artist studied drawing and oil painting at Les Beaux Arts de Rouen for six years. He first exhibited his work in Germany while he was still a student. After graduating, the artist had several public exhibitions of his work, particularly of his drawings on paper. He is a highly skilled draftsman and this talent remains evident in the precision of his current work. In 2003, the artist began experimenting with dry pastels and watercolor; this technique adds a beautiful texture and softness that now defines Crenn&rsquo;s style. A trip to Pompeii at a young age had a profound influence on the artist&rsquo;s work; while there, he saw frescoes, human remains and artifacts preserved in ashes as well as the stunning Roman architecture of the city. The affect of this trip is still evident in his muted color choices, reminiscent of ancient frescoes, and in the overall tone of his work- his subjects are often seen through a delicate fog.</p> <p>Crenn&rsquo;s sensitive interpretations of the world around him emphasize the connection between nature, art, intellect and spirituality. His subjects, whether a stately dog or a glowing nude, are endowed with a quiet strength. His art forever preserves them in these beautiful, contemplative states &ndash; much like the antiquities he saw in Pompeii. Crenn currently lives and works in Rouen, France. He will attend the opening reception on April 18.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 28 Mar 2015 16:07:09 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list Albert Hadjiganev - Axelle Fine Arts Galerie Soho - March 7th - April 5th <p>Axelle Fine Arts Galerie welcomes back contemporary French Bulgarian painter&nbsp;<a title="Albert Hadjiganev" href="http://www.axelle.com/artists/albert-hadjiganev/" rel="nofollow">Albert Hadjiganev</a>&nbsp;to Soho&nbsp;for his 11th&nbsp;solo exhibition. As a minimalist, Hadjiganev captures the simple moments of daily life with only a few elements.The all-new collection includes lush landscapes, seascapes and intimate still-lives.</p> <p>Hadjiganev&rsquo;s depiction of nature is wild and overgrown, ripe with dramatic shadows and brilliant light. The extraordinary quality of the artist&rsquo;s paintings is derived not from his subjects, which are often as simple as an apple on a windowsill, but from his sensitive treatment of light, color and shadows. Hadjiganev paints with bold brushstrokes and shades of green, greys and blues. Deep emotion, stark contrasts and unusual framed perspectives characterize his work. His large oils on canvas capture the conflicting dualities inherent in the natural world &ndash; light and dark, freedom and control, beauty and melancholy. His works maintain a delicate balance between a sense of foreboding and one of welcoming&ndash; many paintings actually invite the viewer to step into the scene through an open door or window. In others, the dark, grey skies loom over sweeping landscapes, often with just a small hint of the emerging sun. Hadjiganev&rsquo;s landscapes are simultaneously perceptive impressions of the physical world and visual representations of the artist&rsquo;s life, struggles and views on humanity. Hadjiganev states:</p> <blockquote> <p><em>I do not know what is to come. It is the canvas that decides- I am merely a tool. I become very small. I do not paint to make something pretty. I paint to put my heart in my paintings.&rdquo;</em></p> </blockquote> <p>Born in 1954 in Bulgaria to a family of artists, Hadjiganev was constantly influenced by his father&rsquo;s paintings and brother&rsquo;s sculptures. In 1977, he enrolled at The National School of Photography in Sofia, Bulgaria. However, he constantly kept sight of his ultimate goal: to study at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. At the age of 28, he left his native home and walked across the border. After numerous hardships, he finally reached Paris. By 1987, his struggle paid off and he reached his goal &ndash; he graduated from the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He has lived in France ever since. In 1989, he was the recipient of the coveted Grand Prix de Peinture of the Academie des Beaux-Arts and in 1990, he received the Prix du Gouvernement Princier at the Salon International d&rsquo;Art Contemporain in Monaco. Since then, Hadjiganev has had over 40 solo exhibitions in the US and in Europe. Hadjiganev will attend the opening reception at Axelle on March 7.</p> Sat, 28 Mar 2015 16:03:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Events/list
