"I am never free of the past. I have made it crystal clear that I believe the past is a part of the present which becomes part of the future." —Lee Krasner

Next Tuesday, Lee Krasner: A Through Line opens at the Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum in Long Beach, California. The exhibition provides a context to explore important abstract paintings and collages from the 1940s to the early 1960s. A Through Line specifically highlights breakthrough moments in her career made possible through her practice of revisiting ideas over time. The artist leveraged exemplary marks, spatial strategies, and recurring themes in her pursuit of illusionistic gestural abstraction.

Krasner’s tireless and fierce self-examination compelled the artist to push the boundaries of abstraction, generating a reputation as one of the most philosophical and unwavering pioneers of the Abstract Expressionist movement in America. Krasner’s collage paintings represent some of the artist’s most conceptual and emotionally charged works. Included in A Through Line is the collage painting pictured here, Stretched Yellow (1955) which was shown in Krasner’s exhibition at the Stable Gallery of that year; in the 2019 traveling retrospective, In Living Colour; and, most recently, in Kasmin’s 2021 exhibition Lee Krasner: Collage Painting 1938–1981.

01/30/2023

Kasmin is pleased to announce that Matvey Levenstein has been named a recipient of the 2022 Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Biennial Grant. Unrestricted grants have been awarded to 20 artists working in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, craft, and new media. The grants give artists the opportunity to produce new work and push the boundaries of their creativity. A full-color catalogue documenting the work of grant recipients will be published this spring. Congratulations to all those chosen for this year’s grant cycle! *party emoji*

Matvey Levenstein’s delicate and exquisitely rendered paintings explore themes of history and representation. His paintings and works on paper are filtered through the most traditional painterly genres—the landscape, the still life, and the portrait—and are imbued with a distinctly literary sensitivity; they are quiet meditations on the relevance of Romanticism in the 21st Century.

Levenstein was born in Moscow, U.S.S.R. and lives and works in New York City. He received his M.F.A. at Yale School of Art, New Haven, CT, after attaining a B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL, and the Moscow Architectural Institute, Moscow, U.S.S.R. He has been the recipient of a number of awards including the Rome Prize, American Academy in Rome, Rome; the Penny McCall Foundation Award, New York; the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Studio Grant; the Katherine J. Horwitch Grant, Jewish Foundation; and the Anna Louise Raymond Traveling Fellowship, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago.

Ali Banisadr’s new painting Weighing of the Heart (2023) is on view now in the exhibition Shades of Daphne at 509 West 27th Street.

In the work, Banisadr renders chimeric figures with energetic brushstrokes, exemplifying the artist’s mesmeric push-pull between abstraction and figuration. Balancing carnivalesque energy with a calming sense of distance, the subjects of his paintings come in and out of focus, resisting total comprehension. On this tension in Banisadr's work, Artforum critic Cathryn Drake has written, "Mimicking the murky mechanics by which memories become blurred, buried, or distorted in the depths of the unconscious to emerge transfigured, these paintings offer singular visions of collective calamity."

01/24/2023

Robert Motherwell, one of the great painters of Abstract Expressionism, was born in 1915. The artist is renowned for his work in painting, print and collage that combined a new visual language of gestural abstraction with the dialectical nature of the human psyche. Throughout his oeuvre, Motherwell’s work is defined by pervading dialogues between European modernist traditions and a distinctive and fresh American approach to art making; pure abstraction and figuration; as well as formal and emotional modus operandi.

Ongoing at is Drawing As Fast As The Mind Itself, curated by Edouard Kopp, the most comprehensive exhibition on Motherwell’s activity as a draftsman. Presenting more than 100 works spanning the artist’s career from the 1940s through the 1980s, the exhibition demonstrates the way in which Motherwell’s multifaceted practice was geared towards invention and variation. The exhibition opened concurrently with the publication of Robert Motherwell Drawings: A Catalogue Raisonne, authored by Katy Rogers.

Upcoming in 2023 🗓️ Robert Motherwell from the Collection: 1941–1990 at . Numbering fifty objects—paintings, collages, prints, and sketches—this body of work offers a special opportunity to examine and appreciate the creative range of this major modernist artist.

01/24/2023

William N. Copley—the iconoclastic painter, writer, gallerist, collector, publisher, and art patron—was born on this day in 1919.

In a 1971 review of Copley’s exhibition of his Nouns series at the Alexander Iolas Gallery, Peter Schjeldahl remarked in The New York Times that, “Sometimes an object by itself communicates an air of comic menace—a straight razor, a corkscrew, a gun—or seems possessed of an odd sexiness—a clarinet, a bicycle, even a shoe. But the richest subliminal vibrations emanate from juxtapositions of objects, which bring to mind the famous proto-surrealist opinion of the Comte de Lautréamont that beauty is 'the chance encounter on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella.' Thus the discovery of a pink plow on a bed or the alignment of a torso with a closed book, implying that in the algebra of dreams anything can stand for anything else."

Creating a significant body of work under the moniker CPLY, the artist has been the subject of five solo exhibitions at Kasmin. Recent institutional exhibitions include a major retrospective of the artist’s life and work at the Menil Collection in Houston, Texas, which traveled to the Fondazione Prada in Milan, Italy; and, from 2018–2019, The Coffin They Carry You Off In at the Institute for Contemporary Art, Miami.

01/19/2023

Alexander Harrison’s Land of Infinite Wonders (2022) mines the artist’s experiences growing up in Marietta, South Carolina, and explores the psychic reverberations of America’s deeply entrenched racism as well as the role of the artist and the responsibilities inherent in painterly representation. These themes emerge in Harrison’s work through the recurrence of the Black male figure, reprised as a cowboy, an artist, and a man on the run. These characters recur as both a proxy for the artistic figure and for the manner in which Black masculinity has historically been stereotyped in popular culture, where representations have routinely lacked nuance. Harrison’s figures exist in riposte to these fallacies, offering instead portraits of self-determination and philosophical depth.

Alexander Harrison’s Big World is the Brooklyn based painter’s first solo exhibition with Kasmin.

01/18/2023

Diana Al-Hadid’s The Long Defeat (2017–2023) takes the Flemish painter Hans Memling’s Allegory of Chastity (c. 1475) as its starting point. Hemling’s work pictures the bodice of a female figure, her head bowed, hands interlaced at the waist, surrounded by the mouth of a volcanic mountain. Al-Hadid’s first interpretation of the painting culminated in the monumental sculpture Citadel (2017–18), a hollowed silhouette of a woman framed by the base of an embankment whose porous mass extends like a root system toward the ground.

With a practice spanning sculpture, wall reliefs, and works on paper, the artist weaves together enigmatic narratives that draw inspiration from both ancient and modern civilizations. Al-Hadid’s rich allegorical constructions are born from art historical religious imagery, ancient manuscripts, female archetypes, and folkloric storytelling frameworks.

Discover this work as part of Shades of Daphne, curated by Stephanie Cristello, which features Al-Hadid alongside Theodora Allen, Ali Banisadr, Bianca Bondi, Brendan Fernandes, Barbara Kasten, Lap-See Lam, Zoë Paul, Ana Pellicer, Naama Tsabar, and Sif Itona Westerberg. On view through February 22, 2023.

"A painting is something like a spectacle, a theater piece in which each figure lives out her part."—Leonor Fini.

Explore Leonor Fini: Metamorphosis, highlighted as a must-see exhibition of 2023 by and now on view at 297 Tenth Avenue, through February 25, 2023.

The exhibition, which focuses on figurative depictions of subjects from drama, folklore, and dream, pulls from references spanning Shakespeare, Greek mythology, Egyptian and medieval history, and opera. A defiant, enigmatic and often misunderstood figure, Fini’s biography intersects closely with many of the greatest thinkers and artists of the twentieth century, including Jean Cocteau, Man Ray, Leonora Carrington, Salvador Dalí, Joseph Cornell, Dora Maar, Albert Camus, Jean Genet, Federico Fellini, Georges Bataille, and Paul Éluard. Based in Paris from the 1930s, she cultivated a persona of intrigue and mystery, and though she shared a belief in the veracity and logic of dreams, she refused to formally associate with her Surrealist peers. Instead, she retained a striking independence throughout the duration of her personal and professional life.

01/11/2023

Born on this day in 1941, we’re celebrating Barry Flanagan and his decades-long fascination with ontology, movement and the physicality of the various materials with which he worked. The late artist’s oeuvre exemplifies pronounced contrasts, both formally and materially, and is connected inextricably by their exploration of and dialogue with Alfred Jarry’s ‘pataphysics, or the “the science of imaginary solutions.” Engaged with the dual possibility of presence and absence, interior and exterior, the theory attempts to essentially distance philosophy from logic, instead championing its inherent incoherence as functional, even necessary.

For Flanagan, the activity of making sculpture, although primarily visual, involved orchestrating ways to demonstrate the sensual and the tactile; surface, color, weight, balance, sound, and light. From the outset of his career, Flanagan questioned expectations and value structures, testing the limits of the genre and so redefining sculpture’s conventions.

Just announced—Robert Motherwell: Pure Painting at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.

The exhibition, which will open in June, 2023, features a selection of visually compelling works chosen from throughout the artist’s lengthy and influential career. Beginning with the abstracted-figurative works that dominated Motherwell’s first decade of painting as he emerged in the New York art world in the early 1940s, the exhibition will highlight the subsequent key series that defined his oeuvre, offering new insights into his evolution as an artist. Pure Painting is organized by guest curator Susan Davidson and will travel to Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien in Vienna through January 2024.

Robert Motherwell’s work is defined by pervading dialogues between European modernist traditions and a distinctive and fresh American approach to art making; pure abstraction and figuration; as well as formal and emotional modus operandi. Now on view in Houston, Texas, is Robert Motherwell Drawing: As Fast as the Mind Itself at the Menil Drawing Institute. With more than 100 works spanning the artist’s career from the 1940s through the 1980s, the exhibition is the most comprehensive on the topic of Motherwell’s drawings in decades and traces the full arc of his activity as a draftsman.

Join us for the opening of Alexander Harrison: Big World next Thursday, January 12, in New York.

Harrison’s use of distinctive framing strategies, realized primarily through the use of trompe l’oeil, allow lifelike materials such as clapboard window frames and the bare stone walls of prison cells to determine the picture plane. Bringing myriad metaphysical references into his compositions, the artist loads the work with an ineffable talismanic quality especially present in his intimately-scaled work. Playing with depth and perspective, Harrison sets these paintings up as portals into a world of elusive narratives brimming with searching, loneliness, and entrapment.

Shades of Daphne opens next Thursday, January 12, featuring Diana Al-Hadid, Theodora Allen, Ali Banisadr, Bianca Bondi, Brendan Fernandes, Barbara Kasten, Lap-See Lam, Zoë Paul, Ana Pellicer, Naama Tsabar, and Sif Itona Westerberg. Join us in the evening to celebrate from 6-8pm at 509 West 27th Street.

Acting as portals, thresholds, and containers of shifting states, each work included in the exhibition engages with architecture as a framework, both in reference to the body and to spaces constructed for both personal and collective ritual.

For over five decades, pioneering artist ’s investigations into abstraction have expanded the relationship between light, form, and perception. Kasten’s Amphora-Aegean, 5th Century BC (1996) is made from Ancient Roman vessels during her residency at The Museum of Underwater Archaeology, Bodrum, Turkey. The outline of the form was created through its exposure in the courtyard of a Byzantine temple by moonlight.

Rolling into the new year with vanessa german's THE INNOCENCE AND THE ORIGINAL SIN (2022): on a skateboard, astroturf, heartache shape before you’d even heard the phrase “microaggression”, love, forgiveness is accepting that there’s nothing that you can do to make the past different so if you stop trying you will feel a sense of relief that is an entering into deeper freedom—all of which can feel in the body like FLIGHT, porcelain figurines, 100% cotton, love, joy in recognizing your own shapes, a mirror cuz you still got to watch yo back, capadimonte chandelier, bells with the names and flowers of american states, remembering Uvalde, beads, buttons, cowrie shells, power in the palms of your own hands, cowboy boots, paint, love, love, love, epoxy, for how it is to be told who you are and where you will go and knowing the whole time that you’ve got options and a thing that feels like a loose river of fire in the center of your heart.

🤍

This work was presented as part of Sad Rapper, german’s first solo exhibition at Kasmin, which went on view from September to October 2022 in New York.

From all of us at Kasmin, we wish you a celebratory evening with your loved ones and much health & happiness in the year ahead.

Today is the last day of . Visit us at Booth C10 to see this work by Jan-Ole Schiemann and more.

Schiemann is a Cologne-based artist whose work builds on and challenges traditions of painting through collage-based techniques, constructing images that are at once sophisticated and playful. Guided by the cast shadows and silhouettes of handmade stencils, Schiemann employs black ink to delineate contours in a mode that recalls classic cartoon production and meticulously applies thin layers of acrylic paint. Additional strokes of charcoal and oilstick create new spatial relationships between the pictorial background and foreground. The interplay of tonal gradations and overlapping elements lends itself to the distinct sense of kinetic energy and illusionistic depth that are hallmarks of Schiemann's work.

“Though Blunk’s earrings, pendants, and bracelets are smaller in scale than his sculptural work, the pieces reflect the same earthy warmth and contrast between function and abstraction,” writes Sophie Lee in a recent feature in .

Taking forms from antiquity and mysticism and translating them instinctively through raw, salvaged materials, JB Blunk produced a body of work that represents an innate expression of, and conversation with, nature. His commitment to the use of natural materials in his work in many ways defines his practice. Featured alongside a selection of paintings, ceramics, and wooden sculpture in our current exhibition, JB Blunk: Muse, the artist's jewelry features precious stones and gems purchased during his extensive travels through South America, Oaxaca, and Peru, while the ceramic beads were brought to the United States from Japan. alongside a selection of paintings, ceramics, and wooden sculpture.
