UPTOWN

Marlborough Gallery: “Paula Crown: Freezing Rain” & "Juan Genovés: Recent Paintings"

Marlborough Gallery presents “Paula Crown: Freezing Rain” from September 13 to October 8, 2016 at the Upper West Side gallery. An Opening Reception will be held on Tuesday, September 13 from 6 to 8 p.m.

"Freezing Rain" features new works by artist Paula Crown. Featured in the exhibition is the new sculptural 8 x 12 foot installation Freezing Rain, a work conceived from photographs the artist took of rainstorms. From the printed digital images, the artist made freehand drawings of individual raindrops and used scanners and software to enlarge and map her drawings to create a suspended stainless steel element designed to mimic a sheet of rain. The show includes a second group of works titled Anemos (meaning "Wind" in Greek). The artist has challenged herself to represent the elusive force of wind visually through undulating, chain mesh wall reliefs created as an extension of her gestural air drawing. Both sets of work on view embrace the tools of technology and photography while honoring the process of mark-making by hand.

Spanish artist Juan Genovés opens an exhibition of Recent Paintings. Born in Valencia in 1930, Genovés is recognized for work rooted in Social Realism and Pop with a distinctly critical voice that advocated for political change during the Franco regime in Spain. Since the 1970s, Genovés has returned to two subjects: the “alone individual” and the “multitude.” Cadmium, 2015 (acrylic on canvas) relates to the artist’s exploration of the multitude, where the collective body of humanity is pulled toward something greater than the individual. His paintings often depict bird’s-eye views of scenes where no buildings, roads, trees or clues to a common place are visible, thus creating a landscape of humanity in motion.

Marlborough Gallery is located at 40 W 57th St #2, New York, NY 10019. www.marlboroughgallery.com.

Hauser & Wirth: “Zoe Leonard: In the Wake”

Hauser & Wirth presents “Zoe Leonard: In the Wake,” on view from September 13 to October 22, 2016 in the Upper East Side gallery. An Opening Reception will be held on Tuesday, September 13 from 6 to 8 p.m.

"In the Wake" presents New York based artist Zoe Leonard's works that merge photography, sculpture and installation. The three new bodies of work on view inhabit three floors of the gallery and balance both personal and conceptual elements. Leonard examines how the effects of war can ripple across generations through the use of old snapshots of her own family from the years after World War II. Using these photographs as a starting point, the artist probes the impact of displacement and draws a connection between the societal upheaval of postwar years and the rise of photography as a popular artistic medium.

Hauser & Wirth is located at 32 E 69th St, New York, NY 10021. www.hauserwirth.com.

Presented in this exhibition are iconic works by late sculptor John Chamberlain (1927 – 2011). Works on view are titled based on a collection of lyrical words and phrases that Chamberlain collected over his lifetime, often in response to the poetry of his contemporaries at Black Mountain college. The sculptures represent a loose, airy and playful side of the artist's repertoire.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts: “Sara MacCulloch: Landscapes”

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts presents “Sara MacCulloch: Landscapes” on view September 15 to October 15, 2016. An Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, September 15 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Painter Sara MacCulloch's landscapes evoke a sense of nostalgia and an essence of place rather than portraying representational details. Works on view were typically completed in a single studio session and retain a sense of immediacy in their energetic brushstrokes and fresh compositions. The resulting paintings create a sense of hazy, familiar serenity and leave a lasting impact on the viewer through painterly abstraction and subtle color shifts.

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is located at 529 W 20th St #6W, New York, NY 10011. www.markelfinearts.com.

In this exhibition, Sara VanDerBeek presents large, abstract photographs alongside minimal totemic sculptures. Through the juxtaposition of the complexly colored images and small pigmented concrete, plaster and wood sculptures, the artist references the composition of American quilts, Pre-Columbian textiles and ceramics, and modernist textiles and weaving. Through these elements, VanDerBeek investigates the historical idea of "women's work" and the creative traditions that revolve around the term.
