Christian Duvernois Gallery is extremely pleased to present a summer group exhibition titled Navigating Abstraction, featuring works by Vicky Colombet, Clytie Alexander, Jian-Jun Zhang, Barbara Edelstein and Lucia Papčo.

 

Through their highly accomplished practices, the artists in the exhibition investigate various approaches to utilizing abstract tendencies in the media of painting, printing, photography and sculpture. Their respective poetics are grounded in the history of abstract art from both the West and the East, merging traditional and contemporary materials and topics into compositions that are captivating both visually and conceptually.

by Jonathan Goodman

"Earth" Show at Christian Duvernois Landscape/Gallery
is extended until February 6th, 2015.

 

 

 

 


October 22nd to December 19th, 2014

November 12th, Conversations with former Chief curator at the Louvre, Isabelle Leroy-Jay Lemaistre and art critic Jonathan Goodman


Opening Wednesday 22nd of October from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

"Using natural gem and earth pigments the new paintings are both earthbound and transcendent. The movement is upward often dissolving into blank canvas as though a morning mist is obscuring the view or a coastline is giving way to a vast ocean.
The intimate scale of the smaller triptychs allows the viewer to apprehend in one glance the detailed brushwork. The perception is as if one is looking through a magnifying glass. One tends to move up close, absorbed by the painting..."

A catalogue of Vicky Colombet's new solo show "Earth" with a text of the art critic Nena Tsouti-Schillinger will be availableat the gallery and online.

"Distilled"

"Distilled" Bernard Jacobson Gallery, June 2014

While the art world is accommodating the publics’ thirst for spectacle and the size of artwork is ever increasing, this show attempts to investigate the appeal of the distilled, the modest and the small. Whether we consider subversive the challenge that a small work offers to the large canvas, or whether we consider relevant the intimate experience afforded to the viewer, is the appeal of the small painting still alive or did it go the way of “cabinet pictures” and religious icons?

"Coherent Surface, Radiant Light"

 

Bernard Jacobson Gallery, New York

The exhibition explores the artistic objective to depict light, an endeavor that has important historical antecedents.  In Cézanne’s opinion light could not be reproduced, “but must be represented by something else, color”.  The Fauvists, aware that a painter’s pigments, when mixed are duller than light, developed the practice of using colors pure, as they come out of the tube. Ben Nicholson considered the color of light to be white and Malevich described white as the color of the infinite and the primordial. 

Vicky Colombet paints subjects in which light is a major presence. Her works evoke the way that light is fractured by the surfaces of water and earth, laying bare the structure of replicating natural forms. This is achieved by means of color and tone control using a restricted palette of white on white, grey on white and aqua blues
