"WARPED WOMEN," (COLLAGE, MIXED-MEDIA PAINTING) by SUSAN BEE
Location: Red Bedroom, Pygmalion-Second Floor

[THIRD MENTION DUE TO UPDATES]

UPDATE:


Ron Silliman has a lovely post today at his blog re Susan Bee and her painter mother Miriam Laufer who will jointly exhibit at A.I.R. Gallery in New York as of February 7. An equally lovely essay by Johanna Drucker on the upcoming exhibition here, and which I excerpt with this paragraph:

Bee's aesthetic is anarchic rather than resistant or strident. Bee is wildly eclectic and inclusive in her work, sticking plastic toys, shiny buttons, rubber snakes and bugs, glittering objects, paper dolls, pulp imagery, and animal cut-outs, among the many mass produced five-and-dime sensibility items onto her canvases. Her painting is eclectic, filled with drips and spatters, the broad brushstrokes of abstraction, color field and expressionist, as well as winding organic forms out of a classic surrealist dreamscape. What unites her work as a body is the vivid, colorful juxtapositions of painterly surface and culture industry objects into a playful, edgy mix. Bee is a late-century dreamer, a pop-culture surrealist making waking dreams in an attempt to rescue lived experience from the flood of the monoculture. She looks at all the stuff of contemporary life, and rise to the challenge of shaping an individual "take" on the mass of material stuff and imagery. In our era artists rarely begin in a studio mode, and hardly imagine the exercise of drawing from a model, painting the opulent nudes and bright furnishings that male modernists took so often as their subjects. Now women artists have a different set of decisions to make about how to figure their relation to gendered practices both within the realms of art and for art in the culture.

Ron and Johanna are right -- in the 7 years or so that I've lived with Susan Bee's painting, the primary sense I receive is just the how color can harmonize so riotously. And whoever said harmony should be more quiet?

MISSION 17

Presents:

CRONYISM

January 20th – February 25th, 2006

Opening reception: THIS FRIDAY!, January 20th, 6 – 9 pm

Featuring work by: Eliza Barrios, Chris Cobb, Cathy Davies, Paz de la Calzada, Rebecca Millsop, Packard Jennings, Michael Romano, Virginia White, and Jenifer Wofford

Curated by: Emily Sevier and Clark Buckner

Cronyism presents an experiment in curatorial practice. Three artists were selected for the show, and asked to invite another three artists to participate. These three artists then asked three others, resulting in a loose network of nine artists in the following constellations: 1) Chris Cobb, Virginia White, and Rebecca Millsop; 2) Packard Jennings, Michael Romano, and Cathy Davies; 3) Jenifer Wofford, Eliza Barrios, and Paz de la Calzada.

By presenting an exhibition dedicated to the theme of Cronyism, we hope to explore the term’s dual implications as both a corrupting force in contemporary social and political institutions, as well as a practice fundamental to grassroots community building. The show parodies the decadence of closed, self-protective power-blocks, while simultaneously acknowledging the importance of mutually supportive groups to sustaining our own art practices.

Gallery hours: Tuesday 3 – 6 and Saturday 2 – 5, or by appointment: 415.336.2349

"GAIL" (DETAILS TO COME) PAINTING by JAMES VALERIO
Location: Living Room, Pygmalion-First Floor

[THIRD MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:James Valerio's October 2005 exhibit at George Adams gallery receives a review in ART IN AMERICA, to wit:

From ART IN AMERICA, January 2006
Review of James Valerio by Valerie Gladstone:

In his tenth one-man show at this [George Adams] gallery, Chicago artist James Valerio presented three beautiful large-scale paintings and four equally exquisite pencil drawings. Though best known for his large-scale figurative and still-life paintings based on photographs, Valerio is not a traditional photorealist. He is far more interested in the edges of reality, where the facts don't quite add up.

This brings mystery even to seemingly straightforward paintings like the evocative Pruning (2005), which shows two men balanced on ladders, careflly cutting dead branches from a mass of tees. Here, Valerio captures the subtle interplay between them as they labor over a difficult task amid gloriously luminous foliage. Equally engrossing is the eccentric August Rose (2004), which shows a woman standing in a small blue wading pool, a pink inner tube around her waist. The artist gives no hint as to why he is there, in a garden, in a pool meant for children, but her stance is so matter-of-fact that her presence makes sense in the same way as it would in a dream.

Valerio draws with the same attention to detail that he gives his paintings. In the portraits here, each line in his subjects' faces, the tilt of their heads, and their expressions speak volumes about their responses to life. As in Valerio's paintings, what is implied is as important as what is shown.

[FOURTH MENTION DUE TO UPDATE]

UPDATE:

Forum Gallery, New York is opening a new exhibit of Gregory Gillespie's works. Here's the Gallery's Press Release:

New York, NY - Forum Gallery will present an exhibition of important paintings spanning the entire forty-year career of the American visionary artist GREGORY GILLESPIE (1936-2000). Defying categorization, Gregory Gillespie painted insightful and psychologically loaded scene paintings, haunting fantasy landscapes, memorable self-portraits, symbolic abstractions and monumental dimensional paintings unlike any others. Throughout his career, Gillespie focused his unerring eye for detail and masterful technique on the forces that drive the human condition.

Born in New Jersey in 1936, Gregory Gillespie began his studies at The Cooper Union for Advancement of Science and Art in New York and completed his BFA and MFA degrees at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1962. Awarded a Fulbright-Hayes Grant and the Chester Dale fellowship, Gillespie traveled to Italy and worked there, at the American Academy in Rome, until 1970. In Italy, Gillespie created real and imaginary narratives of European life, often highly charged with sexuality and emotional power. These works were presented by Forum Gallery in Gillespie's first one-person exhibition in 1966, and the response was immediate and positive. After three more shows at Forum, a remarkable retrospective exhibition was presented at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC) and the Georgia Museum of Art (Athens, GA) in 1977.

The Hirshhorn exhibition, with its accompanying illustrated catalogue, brought Gillespie to national prominence. Settling in Massachusetts, where he spent the rest of his life, Gillespie turned his painter's attention to his own life and its immediate surroundings. His studio interiors incorporated symbolic references, utilitarian objects, clothing, artist's materials and photographs, while his landscapes were populated, above and below the earth's surface, by often surreal creatures that defy description. Highly detailed and unsparingly intense self-portraits and portraits of his family members formed the core of Gregory Gillespie's output, and his work was acquired and exhibited by prominent museums and private collectors. Forum Gallery represented Gillespie throughout, presenting seventeen one-person exhibitions and arranging others at galleries and museums across America. A retrospective exhibition, "Gregory Gillespie - A Unique American Vision," was organized by the Georgia Museum of Art in 1999 and was shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; the List Visual Art Center at M.I.T., Cambridge; and the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown.

The forthcoming Forum Gallery exhibition will include paintings from every period and subject of Gregory Gillespie's career. Many of these have not been shown publicly for decades.

Gillespie’s paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA; the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA; Arkansas Art Center, Little Rock, AR and many others.

Gregory Gillespie opens with a reception on January 19 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., and will be on view through February 25, 2006.

HOURS: 10 AM to 5:30 PM, Tuesday - Saturday
