  • Lynn Chadwick  (+)

    Detailed Description : Lynn Chadwick was born in 1914 in London. One of the leading sculptors in Britain, Lynn Chadwick’s abstract and figurative work has brought him international renown. The angular contours and diamond shaped heads are entirely characteristic of his oeuvre. His figures with their softened geometric forms and rigid, stilted postures became a major theme of his work throughout the 1980’s. His talent for infusing cubic figures with anthropomorphic allusions remains one of his highest artistic accomplishments. Chadwick's work is in the collections of many major museums throughout the world.

  • Dan Christensen  (+)

    Biography : Dan Christensen was born in Cozad, Nebraska in 1942. He received his BFA in 1964 from the Kansas City Art Institute and currently resides in New York City. His early work was of a minimalist geometric style which he later abandoned due to its constrictiveness. He now works as an romantic minimalist, using spray guns and squeegees to create luminous canvases with abstract patterns floating on In 1967 Dan began using spray guns to draw colorful stacks, loops and lines on his paintings, that were among the most original abstract paintings of the decade. Having a unique mastery of the language of abstract painting color, line, surface, and a confident and gifted touch Christensen has used his ability to produce a varied and high quality body of work. By 1968, Christensen made a group of paintings that were colored rectangles and bars floating in a sprayed atmosphere of lyrical, multi-colored space. That year he also began his important series of loop spray paintings. Resembling colored pencil or ball point pen doodles on a note pad, made on a giant scale by a giant hand, these paintings are astonishingly primal and liberating. Painted mostly in thin sweeping lines of sprayed primary color on neutral canvas-colored grounds, these paintings are a remarkable achievement. He followed those paintings with another series of sprayed line paintings that were thick, thin, twisting, serpentine lines and arcs painted on richly colored fields. Christensen's lucid and articulate ability to paint has led his fertile imagination into several radically different series. He has a willingness to change and grow and he has often altered his painting methods and his style. In the early seventies he made paintings with squeegees that were solid blocks of perpendicular color of different surfaces. Dan Christensen began exhibiting his paintings in New York City in 1966. He has had more than 60 solo exhibitions and his work has appeared in important group shows all over the world. His paintin

  • Michael Halsband  (+)

    Biography : Born and raised in New York City, Michael Halsband started photography as a hobby at age ten. At school, almost by chance, he was shown how to make a print from start to finish. Amazed by this process, he ran home and announced to his parents "I'm into photography". They said, "If you're into photography in a year, we will buy you a camera". For a year, Halsband happily printed old family snapshots in the darkroom and understood that true creation takes place there. For him, every step in photography serves getting into the darkroom. As a teen, Halsband attempted to gain admission to The School of Visual Arts with his drawings & paintings. The head of admissions was not impressed with Halsband's work and asked if he had anything else to show. The next day, Halsband came back with his photography and was immediately accepted into the school. While attending SVA in 1978, Halsband began professionally photographing portraits for magazine stories and covers. By his third year at SVA, he made enough money to buy his own studio. Some of the people he photographed at that time were: Andy Warhol, Bernice Abbott, David Byrne, Walter Stedding, Glenn Branca, Alan Vega, Bob Guccione, Klaus Nomi and Lydia Lunch and Eight Eyed Spy. Klaus Nomi's portrait was made in February of 1980, and was part of Halsband's senior thesis. Klaus showed up with the space-like outfit that had just been made by a costume designer. Nomi wanted Halsband to be the first to photograph him in that outfit because he loved Halsband's relentless attention to detail. After graduating from SVA in the spring of 1980, he and continued to work for magazines like Interview, Avenue and Rolling Stone, making portraits including Jim Carroll and Peter Tosh. In summer of 1981, after several weeks on the road photographing James Brown, Halsband got an assignment to photograph Keith Richards for the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine and consequently was asked by Mick Jagger to be The Rolling Stones tour photograph

  • Paul Jenkins  (+)
  • Kysa Johnson  (+)

    Biography : Artist statement: "My work explores patterns in nature that exist at the extremes of scale. Using the shapes of diseases and cures, maps of the universe, or the molecular structure of pollutants – in short, microscopic or macroscopic “landscapes” – it depicts a physical reality that is invisible to the naked eye. In rendering these forms in drawings and paintings the subject is removed from a purely scientific context and introduced into the arena of visual culture. There the possibility is presented of forming a new relationship with the subject at hand: to see, for example, whooping cough or pneumonia not simply as scourges in human history, but as phenomena to be appreciated on their own terms. As that investigation has continued another layer has evolved. These series of drawings and paintings also depict structures that occur in nature at a level hidden to the naked eye, but these images of the microscopic are now also used as building blocks to create a composition to which they are conceptually related. One level of the subject at hand forms a composition representing another level of that thing or idea. These microscopic yet fundamental parts of our physical universe are placed in the broader context of history and art and the stories that we create around them by the composition they form. One level is clinical and physical and one is emotional and historical." Kysa Johnson was born in Illinois in 1974, and trained at Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Johnson has had solo exhibitions at institutions such as The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art (Ridgefield, CT), The National Academy of Sciences (Washington, DC), Roebling Hall Gallery (New York, NY), and The Nicolaysen Museum (Casper, WY). She has been featured in a number of group shows including exhibitions at The 2nd Biennial of the Canary Islands, the Tang Museum (Saratoga Springs, NY), The Katonah Museum of Art (Katonah, NY), the Hudson River Museum (Yonkers, NY), DeCordova Sculpture Park an

  • William King  (+)

    Biography : William King was born in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1925, and grew up in Coconut Grove, Miami. After attending the University of Florida between 1942 and 1944, he came to New York in 1945, enrolling that year at Cooper Union and graduating in 1948. The following year he went to Rome on a Fulbright scholarship. Beginning in 1953, he taught for three years at the Brooklyn Museum Art School. He has also taught at the University of California, Berkeley, and elsewhere. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and was President of the National Academy of Design between 1994 and 1998. He is the father of Eli King and Amy King, and lives with his wife, Connie Fox, in East Hampton, New York. King’s earliest one-person shows were with the Alan Gallery, New York, beginning in 1954. The majority of his subsequent New York exhibitions were with the Terry Dintenfass Gallery. Of note in the writings about the artist are reviews by Fairfield Porter, in 1954 (in Art News) and 1960 (in The Nation), and numerous essays and reviews by Hilton Kramer. The fullest biographical account of the artist is by Gerald Nordland, in a 1994 gallery exhibition catalog entitled William King: Forty Years of Work in Wood. Previous awards include the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts Individual Artist Grant, San Francisco Arts Commission Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sculpture, Honorary Doctorate for Outstanding Achievement in Sculpture from the San Francisco Art Institute, Honorary Doctorate from the California College of Arts and Crafts, and Honorary Doctorate from the Corcoran School of Art, Washington, D.C.

  • Anne Lilly  (+)

    Biography : Kinetic sculptor Anne Lilly uses carefully engineered motion to shift and manipulate our perceptions of time, space and self. Her ordered and precisely constructed interactive sculptures move in strikingly organic, fluid and mesmeric ways. Employing opposing modalities -- analytical and intuitive, rational and emotional -- Lilly's sculptures elicit new connections between the physical space outside ourselves and our own private, psychological domain. They are fabricated in machined stainless steel, but require the viewer's touch to initiate movement: pressing clinical qualities against the sensuous response of each piece. Lilly holds a Bachelor of Architecture, magna cum laude, from Virginia Tech, and has taught at MIT and Massachusetts College of Art. She received the Barnett and Annalee Newman Foundation Grant Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Blanche E. Colman Grant, visiting artist positions at the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Art Institute of Boston. Her work was included in a landmark 14-month exhibition of kinetic art at the MIT Museum, and her work has been collected by the DeCordova Museum, the New Britain Museum of American Art, the Middlebury College Museum of Art, and numerous corporate and private collections internationally. In March 2017, she was the invitational lecturer and guest critic at Lebanese American University, in Beirut, Lebanon.

  • Jane Manus  (+)

    Biography : Jane Manus has been continuously developing her oeuvre of forceful geometric sculptures since the 1970s, when as a young, female artist at the Art Institute of Boston she learned to weld metal into sculpture, an experience Manus describes as a breakthrough in her artistic career. Manus’ work has indeed evolved, and today she works exclusively in aluminum. Her vibrant sculptures seamlessly integrate disparate elements of geometry, thereby truly transforming the spaces that they inhabit. Dynamic shapes and massive forms penetrate the viewer’s space, and seem to move and change in appearance due to their extreme three- dimensionality. Abstract though they are, Manus’ sculptures also retain an unyielding expressive character that gives each work a life and spirit of its own. Jane Manus was born in New York in 1951, and is now based in West Palm Beach, Florida. Her work has been exhibited worldwide, and is included in many prestigious collections, including those of the Cricket Taplin Collection, Miami, FL; Harn Museum of Art, Gainesville, FL; The Lincoln Center/List Collection, New York; the Georgia Museum of Art, Atlanta; and Syracuse University.

  • Donald Martiny  (+)

    Biography : Donald Martiny’s works are full of visceral movement and vibrant color, but it would be too easy to reduce these forms to a discussion of color and flow. These enlarged brush-like strokes, formed from polymer and saturated pigment, are visual poems; the painterly equivalent of a verbal haiku. The swaths of undulating paint, dotted with streaks of hidden color and seemingly random trace gesture, draw us closer, enticing us with their history. The sensual, almost liquid quality of the forms woos us. As these paintings attest "the simplest gesture is the most profound."

    Detailed Description : Kikuo Saito’s rich constellations of gestural works offer deliberate evidence of the artist’s hand. While Saito’s sensitivity to the qualities of paint make it clear that his marks exist on the canvas surface, space in these works is often indefinite. Shifts in density, scale, tone, and intensity of strokes suggest that each gesture occupies an individual position. Saito’s additional body of work includes images conceived as screens. The literal two-dimensional surface of each canvas is asserted by rows of elegant, freely drawn Roman letters arranged by a vanished grid.

  • Stanley Boxer  (+)

    Biography : Born in New York City, Boxer was natural draftsman but began formal art training after leaving the Navy at the end of World War II, when his brother persuaded him to take classes at the Art Students League. He was immediately drawn to painting and stayed with it for nearly five decades. A prolific and tireless worker Boxer was in the studio seven days a week, preferred the term "practitioner" to "artist" and routinely rotated his attention among several media, including painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking. At one point he caught the eye of critic Clement Greenberg, and was lumped in with the "colorfield" painters whom Greenberg championed. Boxer himself was adamant in rejecting this stylistic label, however over the years he remained loyal to the materially dense abstract mode on which his reputation rested
