This pop-up exhibition considers artists featured on Neesh’s online platform (www.neesh.io), curated by Fran Holstrom. This exhibition presents the work of artists with vastly different practices, related by their interest in our urban landscape, the medium of photography, and the boundaries imposed by both. Please join us for an opening reception featuring newly realized works by: William Dilworth, Katarina Jerinic and Emmy Mikelson.

Opening: Friday, May 3rd 7pm - 9pm
On View: Sundays, May 5 – 19th Noon - 6pm
Cocktails: Sunday, May 19th from 3 - 6pm

“Landscape is our silent partner. Yes the earth can roar and the earth can scream but its’ nature is to quietly exist. So much so that we as people can become disengaged from our dependence on that partnership. Artwork that refocuses us in any way on landscape asks us to come to our senses and commune with, rather than ravage, the earth.”

The above is an excerpt from an email written by artist Bill Dilworth to the curator. For images and full Press Release, please click here.

A PUBLIC ART PROJECT BY KATARINA JERINIC

Cloud Drift is a series of cyanotype image flags flown from the Gowanus Canal's bridges on Union, Carroll, Third & Ninth Streets. As each flag is activated by the wind, an image of the canal’s surface just below unfurls, transforming dingy waters into sublimely cloudy skies. Presented by Gowanus Souvenir Shop @gowanussouvenir

Katarina Jerinic Fundraising Campaign

Katarina Jerinic "Cloud Drift" in Gowanus

An ambitious site specific exploration of the Gowanus Canal by Brooklyn artist Katarina Jerinic, with funds raised through Hatchfund.

In the artist's words: Cloud Drift is a series of monumental cyanotype-image flags to be flown over the Gowanus Canal in the summer of 2017 (June 21-September 21) at each of its pedestrian crossings––on Union, Carroll, Third and Ninth Streets. It is presented in partnership with Gowanus Souvenir Shop. Each flag will feature a photograph of the canal's surface with its floating debris, mucky formations and reflections of Brooklyn skies, signs and structures. Over each of the canal's bridges, an upside-down image of the water just below will fly in the sky above, transforming a dingy urban landscape into pictures of sublimely cloudy skies. These photographs will be printed as 3 x 5-foot cyanotypes on cotton canvas and attached to existing light posts. @katarina jerinic #katarinajerinic @gowanussouvenir

Bill Dilworth’s practice centers on mark-making, and involves a variety of novel approaches. The artist’s body is an instrument to skoot, push and smear paint: oversize canvases record footwork in action, while meandering installations record the artist’s fingerprints as they feel their way around the room. Dilworth also incorporates a conceptual practice that notes the passage of time, finds connections in nature, and across linguistic patterns.                                        

Jennifer Grimyser’s photographs have the professional polish of a glossy magazine, yet use none of the digital tricks. Each photograph is painstakingly constructed in the studio. The resulting images have a heavy graphic nature, tight cropping, and pictorial flattening, yet provide visual clues to help the viewer navigate. Words, symbols, and diagrams are placed within the image concretely, often casting shadows, while 3D imagery is collapsed to freely intermingle in the textual field.

Eric Hibit’s paintings are characterized by crisp imagery and exquisite detail. Lovingly considered from conception to the final embellishments, Hibit excels in two tandem modes of painting: one flat, representational and intimately scaled, the other abstract and constructed to bulge off the wall. Textiles such as tapestry and needlepoint have influenced his repeated gesture, evidenced in the application of innumerable hand-painted dots.

Katarina Jerinic draws attention to our interactions with the built landscape. Katarina’s artwork manifests itself in maps, suites of photographs, walking tours, videos, and handmade editions. The project Beautification This Site, document Jerinic’s interaction with a leftover piece of land acquired through the Department of Transportation’s Adopt-A-Highway Program.  This series of photographs exemplify the artist’s dark humor centering on the notion of ‘territory’ in its expectant state.

Matt Miller builds each painting through an idiosyncratic dance of reductive and additive processes. Embracing dissonance with anachronistic color and dense gestures, Miller’s raw, underworked aesthetic is the result of a time-consuming process. The resulting pocks in the ground and raised surface of each brushstroke are often a springboard for the addition of yet more collapsed shapes, that add dimensionality until the painting pushes towards sculpture.  work relies on deeply textured, bold, expressionist brushstrokes.

Neesh features emerging artists making original, collectible work from their extensive network, and encourages dialogue with the artists. Visit www.neesh.io to request a studio visit or buy artwork online.

Katarina Jerinic Opening Thurs @GowanusSouvenir

Fran Holstrom

 

An exhibition of cyanotypes by Brooklyn artist Katarina Jerinic opens this Thursday at the Gowanus Souvenir Shop. The cyanotype is--you guessed it--blue. The lovely washy, saturated images nonetheless capture the floating debris, muck and reflections of the skies of the Gowanus Canal, which the artist traverses regularly on here way to the studio. Jerinic chose this photographic method from 1840s, and a title of the exhibition borrowed from Asher B. Durand, a Hudson river School artist who fretted over the impact of industrialization.
