Sargent's Daughters

Sargent's Daughters Sargent's Daughters opened in November 2013 on New York’s Lower East Side.
(45)

The gallery's focus is on contemporary art that has a strong historical lineage while challenging current aesthetic conventions. Sargent's Daughters takes its name from the painter John Singer Sargent, who was an innovator working in a traditional medium. Accordingly, the gallery interest is in artists whose work combines the same qualities of tradition and cutting edge. In addition to solo exhibi

tions by emerging artists and mid-career artists, the gallery programs two-person and small group exhibitions to create new conversations within the context of each artist's work. Sargent's Daughters produces artist catalogues to further the discourse of contemporary art.

Emily Furr | Metal Heart |
Opening Wednesday, August 17th, 6-8pm

Sargent's Daughters is pleased to present Metal Heart, an exhibition of new paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Emily Furr, occurring in conjunction with a solo presentation of her works at The Armory Show in September.  This is Furr's third solo exhibition with the gallery.
In this new body of work, Furr draws upon Precisionism, Surrealism, and Pop Art to make work that feels both timeless and profoundly timely.  These sharp-edged, saturated paintings, all rendered in oil, depict nails stabbing gemstones, machines spewing out reels of stars, and missiles penetrating the sky.  Though their content is almost mystical, the style of the works draws to mind billboard advertisements or propaganda posters.  They bring to mind militarism and violence, with symbols that imply the presence of political or personal unrest.
Metal Heart is a continuation of Furr’s inquiry into human attempts to control the uncontrollable, producing disorienting images which insert intimately terrestrial objects into galactic star-scapes.  In each composition, Furr produces unexpected juxtapositions of scale.  She achieves this either by placing commonplace items into seemingly infinite settings, or by allowing a glimpse of the cosmos through the cracks of the quotidian.  In either case, the viewer is exposed to the incommensurability of the two realms, suggesting the futility of human development and consumption.
Engaging themes of industrialism, transformation, and the cosmic void, Furr’s work speaks to the fragility of human exploits in the face of the vastness of the universe.  Yet despite the danger, one can’t help but feel ensnared in their orbit.

Rachel Youn “No Pain No Gain” opens Thursday, July 7, 6-8PM

Sargent’s Daughters is pleased to present “No Pain No Gain,” the debut New York solo exhibition of sculptor and installation artist Rachel Youn (b. 1994, Abington, PA). Based in St. Louis, MO, Youn uses online secondhand shopping to source materials that evoke aspiration and failure, then combines them into kinetic sculptures through an improvisational and intuitive studio practice. These motorized objects are easily anthropomorphized, as their repeated movements suggest labor, melancholia, and a sardonic sense of humor.

For several years, personal massage devices and plastic flora have been Youn’s primary media. Affixed to the motorized devices, the fake plants appeared to gyrate and groove in stylized installations that comment on q***r joy, eroticism, and the absurd. While Youn’s new body of work retains the same core components, it introduces implements of stereotypically masculine confinement and control, including a pull up bar, a gun rack, a tire jack, and a hand strengthener, all of which constrict the movement of the motorized flowers.

“No pain, no gain,” was a phrase frequently recited by Youn’s father as they were growing up. Though the aphorism is commonly used to promote exercise, Youn’s immigrant father was speaking more broadly about the existential toil inherent to modern American life. The phrase also echoes the emphasis on sacrifice and suffering in the Christian faith, from the crucifixion of Christ to narratives of persecution and martyrdom. Youn, who was raised Baptist, places the plants in restrictive positions so they appear to writhe in pain, questioning if suffering is necessarily a productive force.

Youn sums up the ethos of these works as a “Sisyphean dance-until-you-die-ness.” The motion of the plants is unending and viscerally uncomfortable, akin to exercise or menial labor. Though the exhibition’s title implies that there is gain to be had, the extended stasis of these hybrid objects only seems to result in more anguish, but perhaps there is pleasure in the pain.

Rachel Youn’s debut NYC solo show opens THURSDAY JULY 7 🌺 Rachel Youn (b. 1994, Abington, PA) is an artist living and working in St. Louis, MO. Working across sculpture and installation, Youn sources materials with a history of aspiration and failure through online secondhand shopping. Youn rescues electric massagers from suburban limbo, fastening artificial plants to the machines to create kinetic sculptures that are clumsy, erotic, and absurd. Haunted by their immigrant father’s pursuit of the American Dream, their work identifies with the replica that earnestly desires to be real, and the failed object that simulates care and intimacy.

06/28/2022

On August 10, Public Art Fund will present Travels Pretty, an exhibition based on 12 new paintings by artist Wendy Red Star created for JCDecaux bus shelters in New York City, Chicago, and Boston. Continuing her practice of mining museum archives and collections that house Apsáalooke (Crow) objects, for this new series, Red Star has explored parfleches, the “suitcases” of the nomadic tribes of the North American Great Plains. These hand-painted rawhides--used to store and transport food and personal possessions--were traditionally made by women and served as a compelling means of tribal and self-expression for those who created them. They constitute one of the great traditions of imagery created by Native artists. Red Star’s 12 detailed and vibrant paintings celebrate the communal knowledge of Apsáalooke parfleches, which were unique utilitarian containers instrumental to nomadic life. By taking the parfleches outside the museum walls, where many are currently housed, and reinterpreting them for the city streets, Travels Pretty makes these objects newly visible and accessible, sharing Indigenous cultural perspectives with a broad public audience. Travels Pretty is Red Star’s first public art exhibition and will be on view from August 10 to November 20, 2022 on 300 JCDecaux bus shelters across New York City, Chicago, and Boston. 

"Parfleche designs go beyond the idea of abstract painting which is a Western lens of looking at them," says artist Wendy Red Star. "To me they represent a community of people immediately recognized as the Apsáalooke Nation. That’s a powerful portrayal of what a community stands for. By showcasing them on JCDecaux bus shelters denotes both me and my community in these cities. It gets back to the notion of collecting material culture of Native people and opens the conversation to that."

Sargent's Daughters is thrilled to announce representation of New York-based artist Yevgeniya Baras (b. Syzran, former Soviet Union).  The artist will have a solo show at Sargent's Daughters in the autumn of 2023. 

Baras' paintings take shape through a process of layering and accumulation, combining oil media with various found and unconventional materials. The resulting objects hover between painting and sculptural relief, with layers that frequently extend onto the sides and supports of the canvas, refusing any definitive boundary. Within these stratified compositions, Baras creates symbolic topographies which address ideas of language, migration, and translation. The material richness of the work serves to generate abstractions that are encoded and deeply personal to the artist.

Baras was named Senior Fulbright Scholar in 2022. She was a recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in 2021, Guggenheim Fellowship in 2019, the Pollock-Krasner grant and the Chinati Foundation Residency in 2018, and the Yaddo Residency in 2017. She received the Artadia Prize and was selected for the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, and the MacDowell Colony residency in 2015. In 2014 she was named a recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s Emerging Artist Prize.

Baras holds a BA in Psychology and Fine Arts and an MA in Education from the University of Pennsylvania (2003) and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2007). Baras teaches at Rhode Island School of Design.

In conjunction with the announcement of her representation by Sargent's Daughters we are happy to present a Q & A with the artist and an online viewing room of recent works.

Opens tonight at in NYC: “The Clamor of Ornament: Exchange, Power, and Joy from the Fifteenth Century to the Present” featuring Wendy Red Star’s “1880 Crow Peace Delegation” • Bringing together more than 200 objects produced over the past five centuries, The Clamor of Ornament: Exchange, Power, and Joy from the Fifteenth Century to the Present will explore ornament in architecture, art, and design through the lens of drawing. The exhibition will foreground ornament’s potential as a mode of communication, a form of currency, and a means of exchange across geographies and cultures. The Clamor of Ornament will seek to address the multilayered complexity of the history of ornament, including the dissonance between the unequal and destructive relationships that mediate its movement between sources. Together, the objects on view will both celebrate and interrogate ornament’s fluidity by making connections between motifs, methods, and intentions.

The exhibition will feature a broad range of drawings, prints, textiles and objects, including eighteenth-century Indian palampores; Pennsylvania Dutch Fraktur drawings; kosode paper designs; Navajo textiles; and Albrecht Dürer’s Islamic-inspired woodblock-print knots. This broad approach to the subject of ornament will also encompass original architectural drawings by Louis Sullivan and Sir David Adjaye; contemporary ornament in the form of logos from luxury fashion brands; and even present-day designs for patisserie.

Organized by Dr. Emily King, Guest Curator, with Duncan Tomlin and Margaret-Anne Logan

Happy Mother’s Day ! Motherhood is a CHOICE and so to celebrate Mother’s Day we present: DAUGHTERS DEFIANT: a fundraising auction supporting Keep Our Clinics and WRRAP- going live soon!

We are saddened and enraged by the recently leaked draft of the Supreme Court's decision overturning Roe v. Wade, and we want to mobilize immediately to provide support to those most affected by this terrible situation.

With the generous support of our community of artists we present this online auction of original artworks, with 100% of the proceeds to be divided evenly between two organizations working on the ground to protect the right to safe abortions: Keep Our Clinics and WRRAP.

Keep Our Clinics provides funding to a network of independent clinics throughout all 50 states. The majority of clinics providing care after the first trimester are independent and are often located in small towns, rural areas, and politically hostile states, and may be the only abortion providers in their state or region. Our contribution to Keep Our Clinics will help their members to meet the needs of every patient and ensure that providers are fully equipped to provide this essential health care.

WRRAP (Women's Reproductive Rights Assistance Project) is the largest national, independent, nonprofit abortion fund. WRRAP ensures that financially-disadvantaged individuals of all ages, ethnicities, cultural backgrounds, gender identities, and sexual orientations can access abortion care and emergency contraception. They provide funding for both medical and surgical procedures.

All of the works were generously donated by the artists in support of Keep Our Clinics and WRRAP. We are grateful to them for their support, which will help to defend the right of all people to make informed decisions about their bodies.

with love and solidarity,

Sargent's Daughters

Wendy Red Star “American Progress” is now on view at .collection.stanford

Wendy Red Star: American Progress presents work by the artist Wendy Red Star, who was raised on the Apsáalooke (Crow) reservation in Montana. Red Star’s work is informed by her cultural heritage and engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance.

This exhibition, installed throughout the first floor of the museum, explores the ideas of Westward Expansion and Manifest Destiny through the lens of John Gast’s 1872 painting, American Progress. Gast’s painting exemplifies the justification of American settlers driving Indigenous communities off their land during the 19th century.

Red Star addresses the racism, displacement, and culture that expanded our country into the Western United States through original immersive installations created specifically for this exhibition, explorations of our shared histories, and colorful lithographs that present her own genealogy. Much of the artwork in American Progress is created specifically for this exhibition and has never been on view before.

“The Palm-Wine Drinkard” opens tonight 6-8PM with work by Johannes Högbom, Alyssa Klauer & Heidi Norton.

Working across painting, sculpture, installation, and photography, all three artists intersect in the space between different states of being or consciousness. Through surreal compositions, they evoke the liminal realm between waking and dreaming, animate and inanimate, alive and dead. The exhibition’s title is drawn from Nigerian author Amos Tutuola’s 1952 novella of the same name, which follows an unnamed, often intoxicated protagonist on a meandering and metaphorical path in pursuit of ever more palm-wine.

💝 EXCITING NEWS 💝 Sargent's Daughters announces representation of Brooklyn-based artist Cielo Felix-Hernandez (b.1998, Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico). The artist had her debut solo show "nieta" with the gallery in January 2022.

Working primarily in oil paint, Felix-Hernandez draws on memory and aesthetics derived from cultural legacy to reflect her lived experience as a trans-femme Boricua. Her exuberant palette and detailed, referential compositions draw viewers in to a space of care, resilience, and joy.

Many of Felix-Hernandez's works and their fringed borders are dyed using aqua de jamaica, a hibiscus tea and an organic material that ties the artworks to the natural world. Living matter is studded throughout the works; plantain trees, chickens, and other flora and fauna burst through cracks in pavement, overtaking adverse surroundings and generating new futures. Other objects, such as purses, long hair, and acrylic nails are drawn from the artist’s current life and inspirations. These are most often worn by the feminine figures who recur throughout the paintings and exists as an icon of self-fashioning and self-care. For Felix-Hernandez, she represents an expansive transfemme future that exists beyond the confining narratives of coloniality and marginalization.

Cielo Felix-Hernandez (b. 1998, Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico) received her BFA in Sculpture + Extended Media from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA. Recent group exhibitions include Nine Lives, Fortnight Institute, New York, NY, 2021; Visions and Nightmares, Simone Subal Gallery, curated by Baseera Khan, New York, NY, 2021; I’ll Make You Sorry, curated by LaNia Sproles, Green Gallery, Milwaukee, WI, 2020; documento, Embajada, San Juan, Puerto Rico; My Flannel Knickers, Sargent's Daughters, New York, NY; and Dynasty, curated by Amy Goldrich, Christopher K. Ho, Omar Lopez-Chahoud, and Sara Reisman at PS122 Gallery, New York, NY, 2019. She had her first New York solo presentation with Sargent's Daughters in January 2021.

FINAL WEEK: Cielo Felix-Hernandez “nieta” is on view through Saturday, February 5 • The roots of Felix-Hernandez’s paintings are autobiographical, referencing an upbringing caught between the island of Puerto Rico and the mainland of the United States. They contain traces of the past which express the artist’s diasporic roots, as well as those of her mother and grandmother. The exhibition’s title, nieta (granddaughter), serves to highlight the importance of generational ties, especially across geographical distance. For Felix-Hernandez, this familial warmth and positive identification is in contrast to the disruption and instability generated by the colonization of Puerto Rico by the U.S.

Grounded in this familial legacy, the paintings expand into the realms of the imagined and the possible. Many of the works and their fringed borders are dyed using aqua de jamaica, a hibiscus tea and an organic material that ties the artworks to the natural world. Living matter is studded throughout the works; plantain trees, chickens, and other flora and fauna burst through cracks in pavement, overtaking adverse surroundings and generating new futures.

Wendy Red Star’s “Accession” series is currently on view at in
OBJECT RELATIONS: INDIGENOUS BELONGINGS, an exhibit which showcases a selection of Native American art and cultural heritage objects held in the Collection of Art Properties at Columbia University. These include children-related cultural materials from daily life—wedding moccasins, a cradleboard, a woven child’s blanket, as well as a suite of drawings—by unknown makers from four tribal nations—Apsáalooke (Crow), Kanienʼkehá꞉ka (Mohawk), Diné (Navajo), and Inupiaq. They are paired with works by four contemporary Indigenous women artists—Wendy Red Star, Skawennati, Dakota Mace, and Sonya Kelliher-Combs—from these same tribal nations. The exhibition foregrounds powerful connections across space and time, between contemporary Indigenous artists and their material culture, and the capacity of their art to contextualize and illuminate these objects from Indigenous perspectives. Evoking troubling histories while affirming Native resistance and resurgence, the contemporary works address problematic settler colonial policies which continue to plague Native people.
