Eric Brown, solo exhibition at ARTS CENTER at DUCK CREEK

ERIC BROWN

The Particulars of Rapture

July 23 - August 21, 2022

Reception: July 23, 3-5 pm

ARTS CENTER at DUCK CREEK

…”When the pandemic hit in March of 2020, Brown stayed at his family’s house in Amagansett and continued to work on the series, and the paintings became a visual diary. “They provided me with a meditative practice during the worst months of the pandemic” he recalled. “Made up of delicate, repeated lines, the paintings suggest woven textiles, yet they are not facsimiles of a woven fabric—they do not rely on trompe l’oeil, shadows, or a constructed illusion of space. I don’t intend to make believable paintings of textiles. Instead, the marks of paint become the textile. The textiles are “woven” with oil paint. As paintings, they are straightforward, direct, and deliberately plain and unadorned. They rely on the imperfect calligraphy of my hand. The lines’ precariousness suggests a kind of fragility mitigated by interdependence.”…

Jaye Moon Soars On Wings of Desire

by Paul Laster | April 27, 2022

“What do braille, a tactile writing system used by people who are visually impaired, and Lego, a line of plastic construction toys, have in common?  Most people would think nothing, but in the hands and mind of an artist, anything is possible.  Over a period of time the artist Jaye Moon discovered a link and for the last ten years has been making art that merges these two disparate things.”

Janet Taylor Pickett’s Hagar’s Dress on view at Telfair Museums

telfair museums
Janet Taylor Pickett’s Hagar’s Dress, 2007, is on view at the Contemporary Spotlight: New Acquisitions from the Brandywine Workshop exhibition at the Telfair Museums from February 4 – May 1, 2022.
The exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate Telfair Museums‘ recently acquired lithographs by Black artists.  This acquisition moves the museum forward in its long-term goal of diversifying the collection and highlighting the works of underrepresented artists and narratives.  Other than two works by noted Georgia-born painter Benny Andrews, these compelling works on paper were created by significant female artists – Faith Ringgold, Deborah Willis, Emma Amos, Selma Burke, Sonya Clark, Gwendolyn Knight, Samella Lewis, Janet Taylor Pickett, Howardena Pindell, Alison Saar, Betye Saar, and Lorna Williams.  Created in the late 20th century and 21st century, these works cover a wide range of timely themes, including the legacies of slavery and racism in the United States, spirituality, education, womanhood, and nature.  They also effectively illustrate the visual, social, and political scopes of the powerfully versatile medium of printmaking.

Zhang Hongtu’s Mai Dang Lao from the Brooklyn Museum Collection featured on NYC – ARTS

ZHANG HONGTU:
Zhang Hongtu
Zhang Hongtu, Mai Dang Lao (McDonald’s), 2002, set of 4pcs, cast bronze, edition of 10 plus 2 AP’s, actual size
Zhang Hongtu’s Mai Dang Lao (McDonald’s) was featured on the February 17, 2022 episode of the PBS program, NYC-ARTS.  The February 17, 2022 NYC-ARTS episode presented the “Arts of China” gallery of the Brooklyn Museum, which highlights 5,000 years of Chinese artistic accomplishments.  
In Mai Dang Lao (McDonald’s), a hamburger box, french fries container, a fork, and a knife, are cast in bronze and adorned with traditional Chinese motifs, like the taotie mask, which is typically featured on ancient ritual bronze vases used in Chinese ancestor worship.  Here it is combined with the iconic logo of the fast-food giant, transforming the “Happy Meal” into a Shang Dynasty artifact.  The creative juxtaposition of ancient China with contemporary America, and ritual art with consumer culture, is a whimsical critique of the systems of power.  The artist, Zhang Hongtu, a leader of the Political Pop movement in contemporary Chinese art, lives in Queens, New York, after emigrating from China in the 1980s.

“If Bison Can Dream”, a solo exhibition, by Zhang Hongtu from November 27, 2021 to January 22, 2022 at the TKG Foundation for Arts & Culture, Taipei.
………“Throughout the making of this series, Zhang visited Kansas several times and took thousands of photos of bison and the tallgrass prairies. He also carved reliefs into stones sourced from a local quarry. On view alongside the paintings and sculptures of his latest “Bison Roaming” series is a compilation of unpublished early works, precious manuscripts, and archival documents from his early “Ox” series. By viewing these works together, the viewer will discover the disruptions and transformations of Zhang’s social, environmental, and psychological journeys through his depictions of bison, nature, and the Anthropocene. In addition to the aforementioned works, the gallery will be screening an exclusive documentary by director Fang Xin presenting Zhang’s monologues from before and after his creation of Bison and Cranes, After the Emperor Huizong of Song 907 Years Later, the first work in the “Bison Roaming” series. In the documentary, Zhang Hongtu shares his views on art history, his journey leaving home, and the cultural foundations of his new series.”…………..

Jane Freilicher and Thomas Nozkowski: True Fictions curated by Eric Brown

Jane Freilicher and Thomas Nozkowski: True Fictions curated by Eric Brown

The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation are proud to present Jane Freilicher and Thomas Nozkowski: True Fictions, curated by Eric Brown and on view November 5, 2021 – February 26, 2022.  A catalog featuring essays by Brown and Barry Schwabsky will accompany the exhibition.

The first to pair the work of Freilicher (1924–2014) and Nozkowski (1944–2019), the exhibition comprises a selection of sixteen paintings from the artists’ last decades, when Freilicher’s paintings became pared down and more abstract. Rather than encouraging the divide between abstraction and representation, True Fictions collapses the distinction, presenting a novel pairing that helps us to see two bodies of work anew—each through the lens of the other.
