  • Chul Hyun Ahn  (+)

    Biography : “There are no clear answers to what lies beyond the physical limitations of our world. This is the crux of the work—the audience must bring themselves to the threshold and confront the infinite space to complete the work.” — Chul Hyun Ahn, December 2016 Korean artist Chul Hyun Ahn investigates infinite space through his use of light, color, and illusion. His interest in the gap between the conscious and subconscious compels him to construct illusionistic environments, providing a spaces for contemplation. Ahn’s sculpture urges the viewer to consider man’s boundless ability for physical and spiritual travel while exploiting notions of infinity and the poetics of emptiness. Ahn has translated geometric painting and the Zen practice of meditation into an art of light, space, and technology, enticing the viewer to look deeply into his frame of environments. His works create an optical and bodily illusion of infinity through apparent limitless space. The notion of the void distinguishes his work amid the vast panoply of ways that artists have used light as a medium since the experiments of the 1920s and particularly since the 1960s. Chul Hyun Ahn was born in 1971 in Busan, South Korea. He received a Masters of Fine Arts from the Mount Royal School at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, where he is currently based. Ahn is an artist of international acclaim, with works in numerous public and private collections including the Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, the Hearst Foundation, Movado Group, the Jordan D. Schnitzer Family Foundation, Delaware Art Museum, Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art and the Palm Springs Art Museum.

  • Anthony Caro  (+)

    Biography : Anthony Caro has played a pivotal role in the development of twentieth century sculpture. He came to public attention with a show at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1963, where he exhibited large abstract sculptures brightly painted and standing directly on the ground. They engage the spectator on a one-to-one basis. This was a radical departure from the way sculpture had hitherto been seen and paved the way for future developments in three-dimensional art.

  • Hidenori Ishii  (+)

    Biography : Hidenori Ishii’s recent work explores the destruction at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan in 2011. These dreamlike compositions posit a series of meditations on what utopia might be possible after nuclear collapse and how beauty might persist as landscape turns mutant. The works on view feature the artist’s signature use of synthetic resin Kuricoat C-720, a neon-green substance sprayed at Fukushima Daiichi after the reactor meltdown in an effort to resist the airborne spread of radiation. The painted surfaces have a slick and sensuous quality, inviting the viewer into an improbable hybrid environment. The reflective pool depicted in Nostalgia VII and Nostalgia VIII suggest a flow of hazardous material which might nourish or poison its surroundings. Ishii describes these paintings as a response to Monet’s water lilies: examinations of how space shimmers between surface and reflection, between visible and invisible. Ishii is a graduate of the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art and a Joan Mitchell MFA Fellowship Nominee.

  • Jae Ko  (+)

    Biography : Born in Korea, educated in Japan and the U. S., Jae Ko's father was a calligrapher and she grew up watching him working with inks on paper. When she began to study art she studied calligraphy. Ko initiated her mature work in paper she created an elegy for her deceased father by setting in sand at the Atlantic shore a large roll of paper slit vertically to its center, and exposing it to the rhythms of the tides. The resulting natural chaos in the forms of the paper constituted the beginning of her inquiries into the poetics of flow, which have continued in her recent works.

  • Beverly McIver  (+)

    Biography : Beverly McIver’s paintings are a voyage in self-revelation from her earlier self-portraits in white face (the clown) to black face (confronting the black stereotype); to more recently, the unmasking of her skin, body and feelings as she explores her identity as an artist and as an African American. Her primary subjects are her family members, in particular her sister Renee and mother, who worked as a maid for fifty years. She is currently the Ebenshade Professor of the Practice in Studio Arts at Duke University. McIver has been the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, most notably the Rome Prize Fellowship, 2017; Purchase Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, 2017; Marie Walsh Sharpe Fellowship, 2012-2013 and 2003; Radcliffe Fellowship from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, 2002; Creative Capital Grant, 2002; John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, 2001; and the Anonymous Was A Woman Grant, 2000. Her work is in numerous public collections, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, Crocker Art Museum, North Carolina Museum of Art and the Weatherspoon Art Museum. In December 2011, HBO presented a feature length documentary about the life and painting of Beverly McIver, titled Raising Renee, directed and written by Jeanne Jordan and Steven Ascher and produced by West City Films.

  • Bernar Venet  (+)

    Biography : Bernar Venet is a conceptual artist best known for his versatility in multiple mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, as well as stage design and musical composition. Venet became well known in the 1960s for his amorphous installations made by piling up loose gravel, coal, or asphalt; and “industrial paintings” from cardboard reliefs or tar. Shortly after, inspired by the works of Minimalist sculptors like Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and Carl Andre, Venet began to produce wall-mounted and freestanding metal sculptures. Among the best known are his torch-cut steel plates and beams resembling scribbles, lines, and arcs.

  • Grace Hartigan

    Biography : Renowned for her formative participation in the Abstract Expressionist movement of the 1950s, Hartigan’s paintings from the latter decades of her career blend figurative content with her signature sensibility of vibrant color, active gesture and painterly freedom. Tracing their lineage from an early abstract practice often integrated with visionary signifiers, these canvases extend primarily from the artist’s career-long devotion to expressionistic line and color. Featuring subjects such as dolls, courtesans, nobles, film stars and chimerical creatures, Hartigan builds on the associative mark-making of Abstract Expressionism to siphon from the collective unconscious a personal rubric of representational symbols. Infused at once with the process of their own making and with a subject matter frequently drawn from past myths, Hartigan’s later works create a new moment of non-linear time in which fantasy can be used in the service of, as the artist has stated, “understanding the life you are living.” C. Grimaldis Gallery has proudly represented Grace Hartigan’s work and estate since 1979. Hartigan’s work is represented extensively in private and public collections worldwide including the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Hirshhorn Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her work is currently on view in Women of Abstract Expressionism at the Palm Springs Art Museum.

  • Leland Rice  (+)

    Detailed Description : Renowned San Francisco-based artist Leland Rice operates as a documentarian, translator and archeologist through his texture-rich photographs, most famously of the graffiti on the now collapsed Berlin Wall. Tied to the concerns of art history's overlapping meanings through the visage of street art and photography, Rice's rich tableau of selections call to the forefront of our imaginations the content of our most common urban surfaces: the exclamations of culture found on every wall. As a historical note, this year is the 50th anniversary of the construction of the Berlin Wall.

  • John Ruppert  (+)

    Detailed Description : Utilizing inspiration from geological forces, architectural forms and the natural landscape, artist John Ruppert melds distinctions between these influences through his large installations, video projections, photographs and sculptural objects. Ruppert's sculptures have been exhibited in a number of environments, but are at their most powerful when seen in a natural landscape - animated by light, shadow and season.
