Plumerai -   Vasher Studio

Vasher Studio Plumerai
Plumerai. French, to plume or pluck. “Je te plumerai…”

Jennifer Vasher created Plumerai from a photograph of an earlier work. She digitally converted the photograph to a positive/negative image, laser-cut into paper, and embedded into acrylic. The burned laser-cut edges create a lacy design on the white paper base. In collaboration with her architect husband, Max Vasher, she designed panels with the acrylic tile variations. Individual panels can be snapped together by invisible hinges made of neodymium magnets, which allows for a variety of angles and configurations.

A free-standing screen can be created using a minimum of two panels. Single panels can be attached to a wall with a metal strip. The frame is made of hand-grained aluminum. This edition comprises 99 panels, and each panel contains a studio stamp and serial number on the lower edge.

Skogafoss #3 -  Eric Tillinghast

Eric Tillinghast Skogafoss #3
Eric TiIllinghast’s (b. 1974) Gravity’s Poetry is a new series of light boxes containing images of waterfalls. The internal mechanics of each light box generate special effects, light, and sound to activate each image to simulate surging water. The images portray the surface and texture of massive amounts of falling water in a way that only photographs can. By using mechanical devices and mark making to re-animate them, Tillinghast creates an effect that resides somewhere between photography and video and has a presence different from a flat-screen monitor, projection, or high-definition video.

My process is rooted in storytelling. A story emerges, shifts and morphs as the picture takes shape. Narrative and biography migrate into the process. Making art is my way of understanding the world. What interests me most is how we construct ourselves and the process of personal and cultural transformation.
-Earl McBride

Joanne Lefrak You are a monsoon (clear)
Joanne Lefrak and Hakim Bellamy traveled together to visit Nepal’s sacred sites and trek through the Himalayas. From this experience, Bellamy wrote a book of poetry entitled Prayer Flags about the pilgrimage, mountains, and people of Nepal. Lefrak selected excerpts from these poems and fused the text into glass by pressing glass powder through a silkscreen before firing in a kiln.

Lined Space Blue -  Jeff Kellar

Jeff Kellar Lined Space Blue
I am very interested in the way emotions are affected by specific aspects of the perception of space—monumental, cozy, long, narrow, high-ceilinged, cramped. My paintings are held away from the wall. While they allude to imagined space, they are presented not as an illusionary window . . . but as self-conscious artifice . . . self-conscious in that its subject is the power of art to create illusions.

Proposal For Canvas Desert House #3 (After Albert Frey) -  Thomas Frontini

Thomas Frontini Proposal For Canvas Desert House #3 (After Albert Frey)
Thomas Frontini (b. 1967) combines detailed images with atmospheric backgrounds. The dreamlike imagery balances contemporary objects with historical influences. His paintings explore magic in the mundane and draw from his subconscious.

Frontini’s palette and technique are directly influenced by his Italian heritage and Italian art history. Immense landscapes stretch out around intricately painted flora and fauna. Tiny scenes of futuristic habitats dot thickly painted cliff faces and clouds. In a carefully measured vagueness, Frontini’s paintings address not only the seen world, but a world of puzzling fantasies.

Ascension - Beau Carey

Beau Carey Ascension
The works in Pilgrimage are drawn from the past few years of my residencies and travels. Through a combination of on-site field studies and larger studio pieces, I make work that reflects the characteristics of specific places while retaining a larger awareness of the landscape genre. In this body of work, I use imagery from my travels to the high Arctic, Alaska, and New Mexico. By disrupting traditional landscape compositions, I explore the spatial construction of modern landscapes. This practice is rooted in a history of globalism and environmental dominance. The works look specifically at how we will navigate and view a rapidly changing physical world. —Beau Carey

Became a sail boat before I knew it. -  Mick Burson

Mick Burson Became a sail boat before I knew it.
I like the idea of the tradition of painting on a 2-d surface but usually fall short with finding personal satisfaction with the constraints, so I resort to combined surfaces that fall somewhere between painting and sculpture. I like the idea of verbal communication but usually fall short with finding personal satisfaction with the constraints, so I resort to visual language. My use of this visual language is ambiguous and sarcastic while holding a very serious “I mean this” sort of feel. I use colors that would be found in a toy box and shapes that would be found in a house occupied with people. The work is sometimes uncouth in its appearance like showing up after a late night but still having the best intentions for the day. They are constructed and painted and constructed again with wood, paint, and common materials.

Aten Reign - James Turrell

James Turrell Aten Reign
Aten Reign is based on his 2013 Aten Reign installation at the Guggenheim Museum—a centerpiece that reimagined the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic building as a luminous and immersive skyscape. This print captures the artist’s typical sense of light and color and beautifully represents a three-dimensional installation on a two-dimensional plane.

    Biography : Beau Carey (b. 1980) travels extensively to remote areas of the world to experience and record a sense of place. Individual landscape paintings are often about specific places. Beau Carey’s new paintings comprise multiple geographies. He paints each invented landscape from memory, plein-air studies, and photographs. Mountain ranges from Norway, Alaska, and the Southwest are compressed and layered into single compositions. Carey’s work has been published on Blouin Artinfo, Artsy, Sotheby’s online magazine, and alibi.com. He is an instructor in the Art Department at the University of New Mexico

  • Thomas Frontini  (+)

    Biography : Thomas Frontini (b. 1967) combines surrealist techniques of painting detailed foreground images with atmospheric backgrounds. The dreamlike imagery balances contemporary objects with historical scenes.His paintings explore magic in the mundane and draw from the transformative power of the subconscious.Frontini’s palette and technique are directly influenced by his Italian heritage and Italian art history yet he creates a dialogue between the present and the future. His reference material is sourced from current topical issues that humans face, using metaphors to portray an intangible potential of the future. Immense landscapes stretch out around intricately painted flora and fauna. Thickly painted cliff faces and clouds are dotted with tiny details of futuristic habitats. Expressive abstract orbs are enwrapped in a volume of light and distance. In a carefully measured vagueness, Frontini’s paintings address not only the seen world, but a world of puzzling fantasies. Frontini’s education began in art restoration and conservation in Florence Italy. He received a BFA at the Cleveland Institute of Art and a MFA from Ohio State University, Columbus. He has exhibited throughout Canada, the United States, and Hong Kong and is a part of various collections both private and public including the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul and the Cleveland Clinic. Born and raised in Canada, Frontini currently lives and works in Cleveland, OH.

  • Jeff Kellar  (+)

    Biography : Jeff Kellar (b. 1949) creates pristine minimalist paintings that explore spatial relationships wherein two-dimensional surfaces read as optical compositions. Kellar focuses on the complex interaction between artwork and viewer and the illusory triangle formed as the viewer stands before the picture plane. His paintings comprise many layers of a mixture of acrylic resin, clay, and pigment that the artist sands and buffs to a smooth finish, leaving the color slightly modulated. Although rendered with extreme precision, slight irregularities in the sophisticated surfaces reveal the presence of the artist’s hand.  Kellar’s work can be found in the collections of the Farnsworth Museum of Art in Rockland, ME, the Maine Department of Conservation, the Microsoft Collection in Seattle, the Museum of American Art in Philadelphia, and the Portland Museum of Art in Portland, ME, among many others.  Jeff Kellar lives and works in Maine and was a 2014 recipient of the Adolf and Ester Gottlieb Foundation Grant.

  • Matt Magee  (+)

    Biography : Over a career spanning more than four decades, Matt Magee has experimented widely with abstract and conceptual art practices. Magee’s compositions are organizations of shapes that have been informed by personal history, numerology, and language. Counting the days in a week, seas, continents, and colors in a rainbow, Magee meditates on the number 7 both visually and sequentially in his work. This exhibition surveys the past seven years of Magee’s painting practice. In his early years Magee found a sense of order from his father, a geologist and archaeologist, who took him on trips through the Southwest where he collected small objects along the way. As a young adult he worked on a seismic truck in Laredo, TX and recorded vibrations sent into the earth to determine underlying geologic formations. Later, Magee was the chief photo archivist for the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. Throughout his life, he has established ways of collecting that now inform his compositions. Magee’s painting style is minimal in concept, but his brushstrokes are expressive. Within these conceptual spreadsheets, abacuses, and hieroglyphics are reminders of the artist’s hand. His visual language relates to early hard-edge abstraction and finds inspiration in contemporary scientific, ecological, and technological ideas. Magee was a 2007 Josef and Anni Albers Foundation resident fellow and winner of the Board of Trustees Award from the Silvermine Arts Center. He was also a 1991 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant recipient. His work has been exhibited worldwide.

  • Earl McBride  (+)

    Biography : Earl McBride (b.1963) is a contemporary artist known for his large scale abstract paintings. Growing up in the South in white, black, and gay culture, McBride cites white cotton, black tar, Sunday whites, gospel music, the Runaways, Boy George, rainbow stickers, and disco balls as his early inspiration. His childhood art hero was Don Martin, a cartoonist for Mad Magazine. He learned to draw by studying Mad, Cracked Magazine, and illustrations from the Bible. Interested in contradictions and the poetry of the human condition, McBride uses paint to describe dualities like ugly and beautiful, viscous and dry, oily and flat, thick and smooth, observer and participant, comedy and pathos, male and female, and negative and positive space. McBride’s large-scale paintings are theatrical and unmeditated. Using spray paint, lithography grease pencils, thick oil paint straight from the tube, colored pencil, graphite, asphalt, and enamel marker, McBride transforms wooden panels into fields of discordant colors and shapes that look like both brash decisions and restrained calculated thoughts. Receiving his bachelor’s degree from Otis College of Art and Design, McBride spent many years working in art galleries before studying painting and drawing at the University of New Mexico Graduate Program. He moved to New Mexico from LA thirteen years ago for the fresh energizing air and the availability of studio space. He has exhibited in Los Angeles, Albuquerque, and Santa Fe.

  • Emi Ozawa  (+)

    Biography : Emi Ozawa (b. 1962) creates painted wood wall sculptures that shift magically when viewed from different perspectives. These optical wall paintings are constructed from many pieces of wood that are screwed together to construct a dimensional surface. Color is strategically arranged to create compositions that shift when viewed from different perspectives. Her sophisticated surface application and meticulous design reveal an emphasis on craftsmanship. Even the obscured areas of Ozawa’s work are exquisitely executed. She created this body of work at the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program from 2016 to 2017. While working in her large studio in Roswell, Ozawa chose to increase the scale of her work. Several of her pieces are based on Amidakuji, a Japanese game of chance learned by every school-aged child. If you follow the line, you find the winner.

  • Ed Ruscha  (+)

    Biography : Ed Ruscha (b. 1937) is one of the most influential contemporary artists working today and is associated with California Conceptualism and the Pop Art movement. In 1956, Ruscha moved to Los Angeles and began incorporating local architecture and street scenes into paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs. In the early 1980s, he began to use typography of dynamic words and phrases. In signature works such as WALL ROCKET, Ruscha sets a catchy yet meaningless phrase against a majestic mountain range. The Ancients Stole All Our Great Ideas is a line from Mark Twain’s autobiography and the title of an exhibition he curated at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna in 2012. Ruscha’s work is in museums and collections all over the world, including the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Tate Gallery, London; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.

  • Yuh Shioh  (+)

    Biography : Yuh-Shioh (pronounced ēsho), paints alternative worlds where time is not linear, and space and dimensions overlap. Inspired by esoteric ideas and visions of ancient civilizations, Yuh-Shioh’s paintings reveal ethereal compositions that are both deliberate and impulsive. She melds techniques typically associated with the Far East with Western esotericism and creates a hybrid yet universal aesthetic. Capturing the spirit of both the natural and energetic worlds, Yuh-Shioh uses large Sumi and Hake brushes to apply watery acrylic paint to raw canvas. She places her bold confident shapes and lines with intention, while their watery edges bleed spontaneously and exquisitely into the natural surface. Yuh-Shioh is inspired by the work of Hilma af Klimt, the pioneer of abstract art who painted the spiritual realm and the occult in the late 1800s and sought to understand and communicate the various dimensions of human existence. The artist explores her interest in shamanism, journeying and visions. She explains that she accesses the Akashic records and grounds the etheric plane into the third dimension through materiality. In each painting the veil between the physical and energetic worlds becomes transparent as plant spirits, luminous shapes, and atmospheric landscapes co-mingle in a way that captures the creative spirit we all share as humans in a complex, mysterious and ever-changing universe. Yuh-Shioh (b. 1977) earned a BA in painting at Harvard University and an MFA in painting from Hunter College in New York City. She later attended Skowhegan School for Painting and Sculpture in Skowhegan, ME. In 2004 her exhibition Spirits Gone Astray, at ATM Gallery in New York was reviewed by Roberta Smith in the the New York Times, Flash Art International, and the Brooklyn Rail. Yuh-Shioh was the 2013 Artist-in-Residence at the Chinati Foundation. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. Yuh-Shioh currently lives an

  • Raychael Stine  (+)

    Biography : Raychael Stine begins with paintings made directly on postcards of landscapes and rivers and then makes larger paintings based on these cards. She thinks about her representations of nature as abstractions. Her paintings are self-referential, repetitive, and constantly evolving. Vision paintings explore sensory experiences and dreams. She makes emphatic marks with paint she mixes to make reference to other paintings. Stine uses her memories to document time, light, space, experience, and narrative. Raychael Stine’s work was published in multiple issues of New American Paintings and included in the Texas Biennial. She is a recipient of the Dallas Museum of Art Degoylier Grant, the Stone Award Scholarship at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Gendler Fellowship as artist in residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha. Stine is an assistant professor of painting and drawing at the University of New Mexico.

  • Eric Tillinghast  (+)

    Biography : Eric TiIllinghast’s (b. 1974) Gravity’s Poetry is a new series of light boxes containing images of waterfalls. The internal mechanics of each light box generate special effects, light, and sound to activate each image to simulate surging water. The images portray the surface and texture of massive amounts of falling water in a way that only photographs can. By using mechanical devices and mark making to re-animate them, Tillinghast creates an effect that resides somewhere between photography and video and has a presence different from a flatscreen monitor, projection, or high-definition video. Tillinghast also collects vintage postcards of swimming pools and other waterways and re-contextualizes them by painting surrounding environments with Titanium white acrylic paint and a minuscule paintbrush. Up to 30 layers of paint are applied to achieve the pristine surface. These paintings explore the concept of water being a fluid element isolated in geometric shapes. This project also focuses on our various relationships with water, namely how we think about water, and its ever present inclusion in mythology and culture. Recently Tillinghast has created two fountain installations for the Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. His work has been exhibited at prestigious museums around the world including The Galerie der Stadt Mainz Bruckenturm in Mainz, Germany, Rocket in London, P.S. in Amsterdam, and The Center For Contemporary Non-Objective Art in Brussels. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Albright-Knox Gallery, the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Wisconsin, the Museum of Fine Art in Santa Fe, Portland State University, and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Arizona among others. Tillinghast currently lives and works in California.

  • James Turrell  (+)

    Biography : James Turrell (b. 1943) is synonymous with the Light and Space movement which originated in southern California, where the artist resides. Turrell typically creates his installations in enclosed spaces with an aperture on the ceiling that opens up to projected light, sky, and celestial bodies. Suite from Aten Reign is based on James Turrell’s 2013 Aten Reign installation at the Guggenheim Museum—a centerpiece that reimagined the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic building as a luminous and immersive skyscape. This print captures the artist’s typical sense of light and color and beautifully represents a three-dimensional installation on a two-dimensional plane.

  • Vasher Studio  (+)

    Biography : Vasher Studio is artist Jennifer Vasher and her architect/designer husband Max Vasher. Their work was recently shown at Peter’s Projects in Santa Fe, and at 516 Arts in Albuquerque. Jennifer Vasher’s work has been published in Art in America, Working Class Magazine (Brooklyn), ArtInfo.com, and THE Magazine. HerTylenol Room won a project award at the Pulse Art Fair in Miami.

    Detailed Description : Plumerai. French, to plume or pluck. “Je te plumerai…” Jennifer Vasher created Plumerai from a photograph of an earlier work. She digitally converted the photograph to a positive/negative image, laser-cut into paper, and embedded into acrylic. The burned laser-cut edges create a lacy design on the white paper base. In collaboration with her architect husband, Max Vasher, she designed panels with the acrylic tile variations. Individual panels can be snapped together by invisible hinges made of neodymium magnets, which allows for a variety of angles and configurations. A free-standing screen can be created using a minimum of two panels. Single panels can be attached to a wall with a metal strip. The frame is made of hand-grained aluminum. This edition comprises 99 panels, and each panel contains a studio stamp and serial number on the lower edge.
