Carolyn Marks Blackwood
The Magic Hour, a show, at the Paul Rodger's gallery in Chelsea, whose theme was Luminism, with works by Carolyn Marks Blackwood, Ernest Kafka, Paul Manes, and Randall Stoltzfus.
"Curator, Barbara Rose has chosen four artists; painters Paul Manes and Randall Stoltzfus, and photographers, Carolyn Marks Blackwood and Ernest Kafka with widely divergent styles but with similar interest in the elegiac mood of The Magic Hour. These artists reference the moody paintings of artists such as Ryder, Blakelock, the Luminists and the Hudson River School, as well as Kasper David Friedrich and JMW Turner Their light saturated abstracted landscapes and marinescapes are executed in a contemporary idiom that is a fresh departure from the urban, sensationalist styles now current. They provide an atmosphere of quiet contemplation and reverie. The sensitive poetry of these works serves as a welcome antidote to the frantic pace, characteristic of the aggressive battles of New York City life."
