TAELOR FISHER

I find great inspiration in the natural world, and consider flowers especially stirring. I expressively marry shapes, colors, and scents of my favorite blooms, which produce lush, colorful, and charmingly chaotic compositions. Every painting starts with flowers. But, it is then what intrigues me at the moment that helps the piece take shape. This can be anything from decor curated by a designer, to current trends in fashion, to a color accidentally mixed on my palette. My paintings are not about ME. They are about where they might live. I want my work to be loved and cherished. Thus, my heart and soul is poured into each piece as I create.

BLACK AND WHITE GREEN COOKIES

This is a play on two of our favorite classics: the Thin Mint and New York City’s iconic black-and-white cookie. But here we’re upping the game with finely chopped fresh mint mixed right into the dough for both its lovely green color and fresher-than-Dentyne flavor. Then comes the drama: geometric swipes of white sanding sugar and dark melted chocolate. The mint flavor will intensify as the cookies sit; make ahead if that’s your thing.

Vol. 11.19.2019 | Kollabs + Objects

This grouping of works focus on the interaction between modern day human society and the forest. Our intentions are to see past the obvious environmental issues and concentrate more on an existential point of view.” ~ Luis Garcia-Nerey

The heart of the series embarks on a journey in which the viewer is presented with a narrative but not a conclusion. This is an attempt by the artists’ to create an interaction between the participants and the works.

“Our ultimate goal is for the viewer to achieve a personal conclusion that is not based on the idea of an Other but rather a conclusion that is constructed by the viewers themselves.” ~ Anke Schofield

The artists’ perspective on the subject matter allows the audience to preview a familiar environment while challenging them to examine the existence of human and animal Beings. Although the main premise of the exhibit questions the human construct of the forest, it also aims to reveal an infinite source of reference points beset by the tone of the exhibit itself. Whether literal or abstract, Schofield’s and Nerey’s intentions are not to rationalize a specific idea of the forest but rather suggest that the viewer interpret the works on their own without limitations set by concrete definitions.

Vol. 11.17.2019 | Sunday Selects

KOLLABS

Kollabs is a collaboration between Miami-based artist, Luis Garcia-Nerey and Atlanta-based artist, Anke Schofield. They explore questions on the human construct within the forest and its inhabitants. The artists present a provocative series of collaborative paintings and installations that create a sense of wonder evoking questions on, and of, the interaction between human life and the forest environment. Kollabs’ offer the viewer a preview into a familiar environment while challenging them to examine the existence of human and animal beings.

SCULPTURAL OBJECTS

All three-dimensional forms are perceived as having an expressive character as well as purely geometric properties. They strike the observer as delicate, aggressive, flowing, taut, relaxed, dynamic, soft, and so on. By exploiting the expressive qualities of form, a sculptor is able to create images in which subject matter and expressiveness of form are mutually reinforcing. Such images go beyond the mere presentation of fact and communicate a wide range of subtle and powerful feelings.

VIEW MORE

KEN TATE

Louisiana non-figurative artist Ken Tate’s art explores the more emotional aspects of the human condition. The impetus for the current work comes from the writings of Beats such as Kerouac and Ginsberg, the writing and short stories of Jorge Borges, the works of abstract expressionists Robert Motherwell, William de Kooning, John Chamberlain and David Smith, as well as the works of Robert Rauschenberg. Another influence is the art of cinema, especially in the framing and editing of film.

SMALL KITCHEN | BIG THANKSGIVING WITH ALISON ROMAN

Alison Roman makes a very big Thanksgiving dinner in her very small kitchen (with an extremely small refrigerator and even smaller oven). She’s made some of the classics, like a dry-brined turkey with sheet-pan gravy and buttered stuffing with celery and leeks, but you won’t find pumpkin pie on her menu. This year, Alison does Thanksgiving her way. And yes, that means layering jellied cranberry with oranges and onions.

AARON WEXLER

My work is collage based. It’s physically constructed by layering collected print material, found photographs and hand painted paper. The painted paper is more akin to monotype printed surfaces and staining. In recent work, I’ve been pigment treating the surfaces of Japanese washi paper, Thai mulberry paper and Italian printmaking paper as collage material. I’m interested in the analog version of creating a sense of registration and purposeful mis-registration. The space between the two is energized by a vibrating visual distortion as a result. PLEASE JOIN US THIS THURSDAY 11.14.2019 from 6 until 8 PM to view new work from Aaron Wexler.
