When Technique Gives Birth to Vision - Lenticular Art by Jeon Nak - Review by Mary Gregory

    Jeon Nak, Axis N In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a new technology, photography, was in its nascent stages.  Primarily used as a scientific, documentary tool, it would take decades before artists began experimenting with it as a source of creative work.  Early photographs by Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Eadweard James Muybridge and others hinted at the possibilities of the medium.  Eventually, artists like Man Ray and Ansel Adams found a way to express their own personal...

The Silent Music of Clara Leigh

Finding resonances with earlier artists who worked in collage and ready-mades, artist Clara Leigh has developed a body of work that sings in a unique voice.  In the early 1900s, artists like Picasso, Braque and Gris built complex works of art out of paint and canvas, but also newspaper, books, wood, and, occasionally, sheet music.  As the vision evolved, so did the expression, and the materials used to accomplish it grew wider and more varied.  For Picasso, the guitar was a magical object,...

Moonlit Memories of Mystical Landscapes - Paintings of Gyunghee Joh at Able Fine Art Gallery NY

Gyunghee Joh, Acrylic on Canvas We all inhabit many worlds.  Artist Gyunghee Joh realizes this, and creates works of art that bridge many of our realities—the waking and dreaming worlds, the present and the past, the experience of the moment and the illusory knowledge of memories.     Her delicate, evocative acrylic paintings present simple images with complex layers.  They depict moments of mystery.  A full moon.  An unknown shoreline.  A doorway to nowhere.  But in their mystery, there...

DongSook Jang,  20.8" x 18.9" Oil on Canvas and Mixed Media 2013 There are times in history when a certain consciousness prevails—anxiety, tension, exuberance or excitement.  Similarly, there are times in each individual's life, when things change, and a new direction brings a change in mood. The artist, DongSook Jang, after a long and distinguished career both painting and teaching traditional, impressionistic, color-filled landscapes, has turned her eye, her brush and her palette to a...

Insoo Shin at Able Fine Art NY Gallery - Review by Mary Gregory

  In the paintings of Insoo Shin, the process is as vital to the work as the resultant image.  And there are many processes involved.  Handmade paper is prepared over the course of time; many layers are created before the surface is ready.  Insoo presses the pulp with hands and feet, coercing and forming it to the desired texture and shape.    The choice of material, Dak, which she transforms into Hanji paper, bears the weight not only of the artist's pressure, but of centuries of legend and...

Eun-Jung Choi at Able Fine Art Gallery - Review by Mary Gregory

Time, change, intent and material are central elements in the work of Eun-Jung Choi.  The Korean artist’s densely layered paper constructions are currently on exhibition at Able Fine Art Gallery in Chelsea.  Choi’s paper pieces combine elements of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art; she creates bas-relief abstract compositions that hang on the wall.  Her work, created by meticulous and time-consuming layering of tightly folded newspaper, refers back to a long history of Asian folded...

Lyrical Spaces at Able Fine Art - Marsha Solomon and Yang, Suk -- Review by Mary Gregory

Able Fine Art Gallery in Chelsea, NY is presenting a very special two-person exhibition showcasing the exceptional paintings of Yang, Suk and Marsha Solomon. These two artists, while quite distinct in style, training, and approach are unified by the use of vivid, saturated fields of pure color, and the focus on beauty in both the natural and imaginary realms. The bright, color saturated paintings of Yang, Suk display references to sources as disparate as flowers, one of the most traditional... [more]
