Please join us on Thursday, May 30th at 6PM at Jennifer Baahng Gallery for a conversation with Deborah Buck and Dr. Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, Executive Director of the Parrish Art Museum.

The conversation will take us through the intricacies of Witches Bridge, Deborah Buck’s debut solo exhibition at the gallery. The discussion will center on abstraction and surrealism, and unravel the narratives of cultural and social domination and unconscious societal habits in her works.

Witches Bridge is an arc of Buck’s 40-year career span, showcasing selected works from the 1980s through the present. Coagulating abstraction and surrealism, the exhibition consists of recent paintings that depict intertwined masses that bulge and fold, ignoring illusion, perspective, or scale, flattening the hierarchical relationship between its elements.

THE CORPSES

— For almost two decades and ongoing, painter Laura Bell and poet Ian Ganassi have been mailing between them the collaborative collage/assemblage series THE CORPSES, a title derived from the Surrealist game of Exquisite Co**se.  Pop culture, politics, religion, and poetry appear, and recurring images and phrases create echoes and connections.  Called “joyously Fluxus-like” by Robert Shuster in the Village Voice and described by writer H. Byron Earhart as going “beyond collaborative to a kind of conspiratorial imagination,” each piece reflects a process that has retained its initial sense of play while also reflecting battles over the obliteration of a passage of paint or text or the declaring of a piece finished. —

AKIMBO EXOTICA

Incubated in the 1990s and ongoing, AKIMBO EXOTICA is a body of painted collages comprised of JANET TAYLOR PICKETT’s cutout-dress forms on botanical illuminated manuscripts. The transient flora and fauna are solemn and meditative, buoyant and animated, and vessels of meaning and captured memories. AKIMBO EXOTICA is a portal to the past that declares its story while retaining a patina of mysticism and abstraction—the ownership of Black beauty.

With brilliant colors, bold patterns, and the novelty of using universally appealing, mathematical toys as an art medium, Jaye Moon’s MOON BRAILLE sculptural paintings contain messages transcribed in braille code. Braille transcends social structures and is the language mode for the often overlooked. These works of vibrant hues and striking designs form a unique genre of art that opens up possibilities and freer ways of expression for everyone.

Happy Lunar New Year from Jennifer Baahng Gallery!

Zhang Hongtu’s 12 symbols of the Chinese zodiac—human figures with animal heads (rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, ram, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig)—originated in ancient China. During the Tang Dynasty (618–907), sets of clay zodiac figures painted in the sancai (“three-color”) dripped glaze typical of Tang ceramics were buried in the tombs of the wealthy. More than 1,000 years later, artist Zhang Hongtu has created his Tang-inspired zodiac figures with a distinctly modern, ironic twist: the identical hands-behind-the-back pose and costume are based on popular ceramic figures of Mao Zedong (1893–1976) made in China in the 1950s and 1960s. His sculptures and paintings address themes including dislocation and cross-fertilization as well as repression and political grandstanding.

JANET TAYLOR PICKETT: Pride and Insouciance

https://www.baahng.com/online-exhibitions/

In Pride and Insouciance, Janet Taylor Pickett’s works serve as a powerful assertion of self-worth and cultural confidence. Resilience and beauty reach a pinnacle in Taylor Pickett’s luminous portraitures. Carefree nonchalance balanced by a deliberate indifference to societal expectations, the figures are filled with expectancy and resolve.

ART OF LONELINESS by Brandon Ballengée is on view through January 27.

RIP Spix’s Macaw: After Tyler Yicker, 2011/2023, the Artist cut and burnt the original movie theatre offset lithograph, ashes, and etched funerary urn, 42.5 x 29.5 x 1 in., Detail from original movie theatre offset lithograph from artwork by Tyler Yicker published in 2011, ashes, and etched funerary urn.
— Spix’s macaw (Cyanopsitta spixii), also known as the little blue macaw, was a macaw species endemic to Brazil. The bird had a very restricted range because it only nested in the Caribbean Trumpet Tree, a hardwood valued for lumber. Due to deforestation, the bird has been completely extirpated from its natural range, and following a several-year survey, it was officially declared extinct in the wild in 2019. The last confirmed observation of a wild Spix’s macaw was in 2016.

—The Korean Tiger (Panthertigris sp.) was a population of Siberian tiger, or Amur tiger, native to the Korean Peninsula. The Korean tiger was the largest tiger subspecies in the world. Already uncommon by the beginning of the 20th Century, the last Korean Tigers were hunted to extinction by the 1940s, with the last individual specimen killed in 1944.

THE CORPSES (2005- ongoing)
Laura Bell, a painter based in the Bronx, and Ian Ganassi, a poet in New Haven, met as artists in residence at the Millay Colony. In 2005, they began mailing the ongoing collaborative collage series “The Co**ses” between them. (The series title refers to the Surrealist game of Exquisite Co**se.) With each mailing, the works evolve, and new pieces are started. Both can call a piece finished; some go back and forth multiple times, and others make only one circuit. Politics, pop culture, religion, and literature appear with a new batch, usually in progress or transit.

“A Louisiana Artist’s Beautiful Beasts” featured Brandon Ballegee’s FRAMEWORKS OF ABSENCE series in the ARTS & CULTURE / GARDEN & GUN magazine in the February/March 2022 issue. Among several works mentioned in the article was “RIPSamoan Woodhen: After Joseph Smit,” which is on view at ART OF LONELINESS, a solo exhibition, through December 30 at Jennifer Baahng Gallery.

RIP Samoan Woodhen: After Joseph Smit, 1871/2018
Detail of hand-colored stone lithograph Plate II, “PAREDIASTES PACIFICUS” by Joseph Smith from Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London published in London, England in 1871.

The Samoan woodhen or Samoan Wood rail (Gallinulapacifica, formally Parediastes pacificus) was a flightless species endemic to the Samoan Island of Savai’i. The Samoan woodhen was first described by Polish naturalist John Stanislaw Kubary in 1869. It was last collected in 1873 on the British Challenger Expedition and was never seen again. It is believed to have gone extinct in the 1870s after the introduction of European rats, cats, dogs, and pigs. Humans also hunted it as it was noted to have a desirable flavor.

Detail from hand-colored copperplate engraving Plate Il 1. Sacred Kingfisher 2 Garganey Male, 3 Dodo by S. Edwards, from Volumes in Natural History published by G. Kearsley, London in, 1808.

*The dodo (Raphus cucullatus) was a flightless bird endemic to Mauritius and was first described by Dutch sailors in 1598. Cutting of forests, introduced European rats, goats and cats, and over-hunting quickly impacted the dodo. Less than a century after being described the last Dodo was seen in 1662.

**Dodo stood at about 3 feet tall and weighed about 44 pounds. -l Colossal Biosciences
