JACKIE MATISSE

Jackie Matisse, "New Art Volant", Installation view

Born in France, Jackie Matisse lived in New York until 1954.  Since then she has lived in Paris making frequent visits to New York.  Between 1959 and 1968 she worked for Marcel Duchamp, completing the assemblage of the “Boite en Valise”.  At this time using her married name, Jacqueline Monnier, she began to make kites “in order to play with color and line in the sky”.  In 1980 she showed kites which were created to be used underwater at the Betty Parsons Gallery in New York, and since then has continued to make kitelike objects intended for three different kinds of space: the sky, the sea, and indoor space, all linked through her use of movement.

 

In collaboration with Molly Davies, filmmaker and David Tudor, composer, she created two videos on her underwater and sky work.  In the 1980’s she collaborated with David Tudor composer and musician. She just had a comprehensive show of her work at the Mengei International Museum in San Diego, California, U.S.A.

MICHAEL MCCLARD

Michael McClard

Michael McClard arrived in New York in 1973 with a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute, where he also won a Peabody Award in Sculpture. He soon made his mark on the art scene as a member of a highly original group of young artists who helped to revive an interest in painting and visual performance. He was a founding member of the noted artists’support group Colab and its first president.

 

Sidestepping the confines of abstract conceptual art, McClard’s work seethes with figurative content; yet it has nevertheless retained a conceptual element and mines a strong vein of humor.

 

During the 70s he staged provocative performances such as “Foes v. Foes” at the Kitchen and surreal, carnivalesque installations at venues such as the Clocktower (“There’s Meat on these Bones”); PS 1, Institute for Art and Urban Resources, De Appel, Amersterdam and N.A.M.E Gallery, Chicago. For these presentations, he constructed all sets and props and performed, often as sole actor. His one-act play, “Mumbo Jumbo,” was published in Avalanche 12, Winter 1975.

 

In October 1981, his first large-scale one-man show of paintings and frescoes took place at Mary Boone, occupying both galleries on either side of West Broadway. Drawing on sources from mythology, history and everyday life, he created a pantheon of imaginary characters, notable for their tactile raw energy, range of facial expressiveness and astute power of observation. Also featured were inventive depictions of historical scenes, acclaimed by critics such as Grace Glueck of the New York Times for their verve and by Hal Foster of
Art in America for their metaphysical insights. Many of these works were acquired by New York and Los Angeles public and private collectors. During this period McClard was also awarded two fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts, in Visual Arts and Mixed Media.

 

In the 90s McClard took a temporary hiatus from painting to explore new media. He embraced the digital revolution and applied his draughtsmanship skills to the creation of original software with his brother Peter McClard through their enterprise, Hologramophone Research. The computer installation “DNA Characters” extended his interest in human physiognomy by generating an unlimited sequence of drawings of faces and was exhibited in “A visage découvert,” Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, Jouy-en Josas, France.

 

Among the many group shows in which his paintings and objets d’art have been featured are “Figures of Mystery”, Queens Museum, NY; “The Pressure to Paint”, Marlborough Gallery, NY; “TV’s IN”, Max Fish, New York, and The Barry Lowen Collection, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA.

 

More recently, McClard’s experimental short films Alien Portrait (1978) and Contortions (1978) were given their world premiere at “No Wave Cinema, 1978-87” at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

 

Education:

BFA, San Francisco Art Institute in 1971, moved to New York 1973


Two National Endowment of the Arts Fellowships, one in Multi Media, the other, as a Visual Artist.

REVIEW QUOTES FOR MICHAEL McCLARD

 

“. . .An oddball but wonderful choice, for example, is Michael McClard’s ‘’Mise en Scene (circa 1500),’’ a painting based on the life of Michelangelo. Built out from the picture plane with thick plaster slabs and painted frescolike in rich colors that bring an old-master palette into the 20th century, it depicts Michelangelo in his cathedral workroom, wearing a funnel hat with a candle in it, leaning intently over a scabrous cadaver. At once affecting and funny in its comment on the profession of artist, it’s brought off with great verve.”

 

Grace Glueck, “Figures of Mystery,” The New York Times, Jan 7 1983 Participating artists included Susan Rothenberg and Eric Fischl.

 

 

“. . . All in all the show was a bizarre delight. . .Post-minimalist artists often used materials that were somehow tabooed, but McClard’s art is funnier than theirs. It is also more ambitious in content: the show ranged from shit to Saturn, from grotesques to Christs. Here was an art with a cosmology—the universe as delusion of grandeur. . .But the delusion seemed to know itself as such . . .

 

“. . .The clown, the circus, are also part of the iconography of painting . . . Artists like Schnabel and Clemente pretend to paint the great carnival of time, only to fall back on an old clown act. McClard, at least, shows signs that he knows his act for what it is . . .”

Built out from the picture plane with thick plaster slabs and painted frescolike in rich colors that bring an old-master palette into the 20th century, it depicts Michelangelo in his cathedral workroom, wearing a funnel hat with a candle in it, leaning intently over a scabrous cadaver. At once affecting and funny in its comment on the profession of artist, it’s brought off with great verve.”

Grace Glueck, “Figures of Mystery,” The New York Times, Jan 7 1983 Participating artists included Susan Rothenberg and Eric Fischl.

“. . . All in all the show was a bizarre delight. . .Post-minimalist artists often used materials that were somehow tabooed, but McClard’s art is funnier than theirs. It is also more ambitious in content: the show ranged from shit to Saturn, from grotesques to Christs. Here was an art with a cosmology—the universe as delusion of grandeur. . .But the delusion seemed to know itself as such . . .

“. . .The clown, the circus, are also part of the iconography of painting . . . Artists like Schnabel and Clemente pretend to paint the great carnival of time, only to fall back on an old clown act. McClard, at least, shows signs that he knows his act for what it is . . .”

MIRYANA TODOROVA

Miryana Todorova (b.1984 Sofia, Bulgaria) is a visual artist who lives and works between Sofia and NY. The major concern in her work is questioning the politics of public space and how people occupy it. Her projects combine painting, performance, video, movable architecture and public interventions. Miryana holds a MFA Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts, NY. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Europe and the US among which: Movables at frosch&portmann gallery, NY, Being at the Storefront for Art and Architecture, NY, Movement of the Whole at INDA gallery, Budapest, Disconsent at the Center for Contemporary Art- the Ancient Bath, Plovdiv, and dissident desire at DISTRICT Kunst- und Kulturförderung, Berlin. Miryana is the recipient of the Gaudenz B. Ruf Award for Young Artist (2011) and was a resident and fellow at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture (2012), ZK/U-Center for Art & Urbanistics (2013), District Berlin (2013), BRIC Visual Artist Residency (2014), and Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF) at Mana Contemporary, NJ (2016). Ms. Todorova has been featured in publications such as Artforum, TimeOut New York, Blouin Artinfo, Le Monde Diplomatique, and Kultura. 

My paintings propose ideas and ways of imagining movable architecture. Temporary structures in transit set up new ways of perception and geometry. With shifting grounds and no solidity, the work continuously involves movement and adaptation and every layer becomes a reaction to the transformation of a physical and spatial encounter. 

 

Moving lands of uncertainty and precariousness emerge. Actions are open to improvisation and reconstruction. Gestures flow within open frames bouncing on and off of each other, going along each other, merging or falling apart. Clusters of adaptable architecture bump into actual barriers. Favelas, slopes and fluid corridors come close to the viewer and simultaneously create an obstructed perspective. The clash between depth and sculptural form, coming forward and layering onto one another, serves as a tool for engagement. Negotiation becomes the infrastructure. No arrangement is accidental. No order is fixed. Each bridge needs an extension. A hybrid structure, a moment of spontaneity or an ephemeral city shaped by vulnerability. 

Foreign Body is a series of paintings based on the situations and contradictions between bodies and structures in transit. These works are about adaptations, not quite fitting but being considered fit, perceiving a structure and not being able to surpass and cross over on the other side of it while still attempting to reshape the body to adapt and fight with landscapes and structural powers of oppression and disregard. 

 

The multiple layers within the paintings construct various viewpoints and cut outs- the feeling of being submerged and removed from the landscape at the same time. The canvas becomes the stage for performing vulnerability, separation, awkward encounters, obscured visibility and lack of clarity. The movable forms merge with dissident desire for resistance to demonstrate the constant fight with a world that moves forward too much on the basis of differences and conflicts rather than connectedness and collaboration. 

(b.1984, Sofia, Bulgaria)

ZHANG HONGTU

Zhang Hongtu

Zhang Hongtu was born in Pingliang, China, moved to New York City in 1982. He works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, collage, ceramics, digital imaging, and installations. From the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, Zhang created paintings, sculpture and mixed media installations using the image of Mao Zedong to express his ideas about Communist China and the Culture Revolution (1966-1976). In the past decade, his works began to question the complex relationships between the traditions of old China and the West today, as seen in his large-format Shan Shui paintings, among other works. More recently, his works have focused on the relationship between nature and the human condition.

 

Zhang has exhibited extensively across the U.S. and abroad. Recent shows include Princeton University Art Museum; Museu Picasso in Barcelona, Spain; The Israel Museum, Jerusalem; The Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, Guggenheim Museum New York and a retrospective at Queens Museum in New York.

BRIAN DAILEY

Brian Dailey

American, b. 1951, Pittsburgh, California, based in the Washington D.C.

Brian Dailey’s work in a variety of mediums including photography, film, installations, and painting engages with the social, political, and cultural issues of our times. His life journey and its many peregrinations since launching his art career in Los Angeles in the 1970s have led him on a path of many surprising twists and turns, encapsulated in his creative vision as a self-described storyteller. Dailey’s art reflects his unconventional evolution as an artist and multifaceted life experiences, which include national level involvement in arms control and international security. The artist’s unusual experiences, which he approached with the same curiosity that has driven his art in diverse media, continue to provide a fertile source of inspiration in his unconventional creative practice such as the global video installation WORDS (2012-2018). Dailey has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., and Bulgaria and participated in a number of group shows in the United States, Europe, and Russia. His mid-career retrospective Declassified: Unraveling a Paradoxtook place at Bulgaria’s National Art Gallery in Sophia in 2014.
