🌟 Exciting news from Jerusalem! Kol HaOt is currently hosting American artist Brian Michael Reed for a collaborative artist-in-residence program. 🎨

Reed’s multimedia project, The Song of Seeds, was inspired by his pilgrimage on foot from the Old Port of Jaffa to the Jaffa Gate of Jerusalem. The project aims to memorialize the connection between the native landscape along Reed’s journey and centuries of spiritual practice, focusing specifically on the pomegranate. 🍎

Through the unique practice of pictorial anthropology, Reed crafted glass pomegranate seeds that vary in size and color. Kol HaOt’s Co-Founder and Executive Director Elyssa Moss Rabinowitz collaborated with Reed to infuse spiritual significance and cultural relevance by embedding religious themes and texts into his work. 🙏

Reed invites the audience to interact with his glass pomegranate seeds and reflect on the righteousness and beauty amidst darkness in #

Helwaser Gallery is pleased to premiere Boedi Widjaja’s Quaver Cipher, culmination of his multi-year research supported by the National Arts Council Singapore Creation Grant. The film follows an explorer’s search for his pluralistic cultural beginnings as he journeys into mythic realms and higher-dimensional spaces, led by his conversation with muons - cosmic ray particles that travel across galaxies to reach Earth.

Quaver Cipher continues Boedi’s decade-long research into body, memory, language and encoding, informed by the intercultural liminality of his migrant experience. Performing for the camera, Boedi interacts with atmospheric muons with his custom-built sensor—a working instrument made of double geiger-counters and an open-source algorithm. The 20-min film enfolds performance, algorithmically processed poetry, CGI, and experimental photography. Boedi developed a photographic method to manifest the presence of invisible muons; and the images were described by renowned muography scientist Professor Hiroyuki Tanaka, University of Tokyo, as the world’s first fine art muography that he has seen.

Please RSVP to indicate your interest in the film screening or the artist’s talk moderated by award-winning poet Jee Leong Koh.

Investigating themes of meaning around the Lotus, Artist Brian Michael Reed spent more than a decade living in China creating works of art that encapsulate beauty, reverence, and mystique he found within the lotus. Lotus Message is a series of small individual sculptural units that can be assembled together in acrylic display cases to form larger sculptures or installations. The display in repeating acrylic cases is intentional and speaks to designs found in Buddhist grotto caves. Each unit consists of dried lotus pods harvested by the artist, which are burnished with gold leaf in reference to Buddhist veneration. Brian communicates with people in China constantly asking them what the lotus means to them. Brian then writes with ink the Chinese Characters he’s collected from his conversations on Xuan paper which he rolls into compact calligraphy balls in the shape of lotus pod seeds. The calligraphy balls become seeds of meaning and cross-cultural communication gathering in this poetic vessel of the lotus pod.

Helwaser Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Brian Michael Reed.

Join us next Thursday, September 14, for the opening reception of Brian Michael Reed's Between Portals and Plains. The exhibition showcases oil paintings, works on paper, and sculptures imbued with mythical symbolism inspired by the energy of Chinese and Japanese landscapes, through the lens of a longstanding Tibetan tradition of religious Thangka paintings. Through a systematic and dedicated approach, Reed memorializes connectedness that he identifies and believes can instruct the viewer towards spiritual transformation. This mirrors the intentionality of the creative process in producing a Thangka scroll.

Between Portals and Plains is about bridging ancient philosophies with contemporary techniques, guiding viewers toward a deeper connection with nature and spirituality. Immerse yourself in Reed’s intricate portals and experience his tactile layered plains to tap into the sublime as you contemplate: past experiences, the future as it may yet be, and where you stand today.

Helwaser Gallery is please to share “Brian Michael Reed and The History of Nature's Sublime” is now on Artsy's viewing room platform. In this viewing room, we explore how Brian Michael Reed's work engages in a dialogue with influential abstract painters, including Helen Frankenthaler.

Brian Michael Reed (B. 1984) is an American artist who derives  inspiration from studying diverse cultures, global religions, and art techniques. Similar to abstract expressionists like Helen Frankenthaler, Reed's fervor is grounded in the notion that profound insights arise through communion with the soul of nature. He has embodied this philosophy through oil-on-canvas paintings and watercolors on paper that capture the essence of nature's sublime beauty.

Brian Michael Reed (b. 1984) is an acclaimed American multi-media artist who draws inspiration from diverse cultures, global religions, and art techniques. His work reflects a rich tapestry of customs, folklore, spirituality, and mythology encountered during his projects in various regions, including China, Japan, Indonesia, the Appalachian region of the United States, Mexico, and Israel.

Guided by a shamanistic and essentialist ideology, Reed creates field studios in remote locations and favors works on paper for their immediacy. His art captures intangible energies and translates them into narratives exploring global themes such as love, loss, tragedy, memory, death, and the afterlife. His approach termed Pictorial Anthropology, merges environmental evolution and cultural development topics into captivating visual representations.

Reed has achieved global recognition through major exhibitions at esteemed institutions such as the Huntington Museum of Art (WV, USA), Shanghai Himalayas Museum of Art, and Yuz Museums (Shanghai, CH). He has received numerous awards, grants, and invitations to prestigious residencies and art festivals, including the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the New River Gorge National Park Artist Residency, and the Jerusalem Biennale. Most recently, His ongoing artistic growth was acknowledged by his acceptance into the FY24 Professional Development for Individual Artist Grant program (WV, US). Reed's diverse experiences and deep curiosity inform his evocative work, which is celebrated nationally and internationally.

Helwaser Gallery is hosting an online exclusive solo exhibition called "Elemental Trance" by artist Brian Michael Reed. This online exhibit is a prelude to Brian Michael Reed's fall show at Helwaser Gallery, and proceeds will fund the artist's participation in the Jerusalem Biennale from November 9th through December 28th, 2023.

Helwaser Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by the artist Brian Michael Reed titled Elemental Trance. The exhibition highlights the artist’s remarkable history of global community studies, showing the energetic layers that compose the world around us. For more than 20 years, Reed has explored how pigment and drawn line, particularly conveying motifs through a lens of surreal seriality, can generate visual frequencies that can lead the viewer into a resonance with his works: optically and energetically. An awareness arises from the artist’s sensitivity to perceive interrelationships between the ecological and cultural structures that abound and manifest in the viewer through experiencing the works.

Join us as we immerse ourselves in Reed’s arrays of potent hues and repetitive harmonic marks that skillfully bridge the aqueous and Edenist realms to ignite contemplation. By delving into the fascinating creatures that burrow beneath the surface of our existence, you will experience the transformative energy of Elemental Trance.

Proceeds will fund the artist’s participation in the Jerusalem Biennale from November 9th through December 28th, 2023.

This exhibition is an online exclusive, which can be viewed on Helwaser Gallery’s website and Artsy.

12/30/2022

As we take stock and reflect back on the past year, we are reminded of all the wonderful artists we had the pleasure of working with, and friends new and old that we saw across the globe. It has been a privilege to provide a space for discussion and connection through art, and we look forward to continuing to engage with each and every one of you in the New Year. Here are some of our favorite moments from the past twelve months.

We kicked off 2022 with a solo presentation of German pop artist Werner Berges' paintings. It was our great pleasure to introduce the artist's oeuvre to the American public with Chromatic Euphorias, his first NYC solo show. We celebrated the arrival of spring with Adam Handler's largest suite of paintings to date; Hanami Party was one of the gallery's most well-attended exhibitions so far. Handler's riotously colorful paintings and joyful iconography of Pajama Girls, ghosts, and UFO's delighted us all and were featured in Artnet's Spotlight. In the summer, we ventured Out East for the Hamptons Fine Art Fair where we were honored by the fair at the Bastille Day Vernissage and featured as a stand-out booth. We concurrently opened British artist Emma Coyle's first solo exhibition in NYC, which was featured in both the Yale University Radio and Air Mail's culture matrix.

As the art world returned to New York for the fall season, we were pleased to open French Artist Françoise Pétrovitch's first solo exhibition in NYC. Françoise Pétrovitch: Indigo Children was reviewed in Whitehot Magazine by art writer Kurt McVey who interviewed the artist on the occasion of her NY show. At Art Basel Miami Beach, the French fashion house, Dior, announced Pétrovitch's inclusion in the seventh edition of Lady Dior Art. Hear the artist's take on her handbag design in Dior's podcast via our Link in Bio.

Last chance to see Françoise Pétrovitch: Indigo Children! The exhibition will remain on view through November 23rd.

🗽 Don’t have time to make it to the Upper East Side this week? Click the link in bio to explore an online walkthrough of the show presented by our partners at eazel. Stroll through the gallery, inspect artworks up close, and learn more about the exhibition and the artist through selected texts.

🇫🇷 If you haven't yet read Kurt McVey's interview with Françoise Pétrovitch and review of Indigo Children, check it out via our link in bio. McVey puts it best: "Indigo Children, at the absolute least, is a delightful excuse to take a walk through Central Park in the New York Fall, before or after reaching a destination that will leave said traveler with quite a bit to unpack-thematically, emotionally, psychologically, perhaps even supernaturally." -

📬 In additional news, this autumn, Pétrovitch became the first living artist to receive France's highest honor of a commission by the Minister of Culture to create a national stamp design. [link in bio for more!]

See you soon on Madison Avenue!

No matter the medium, drawing remains at the center of Pétrovitch’s practice; from an early age she decided, not knowing the word “artist,” to be a “drawer.” That foundation persists as a sort of binding agent holding her compositions together. She admires Henri Matisse, who managed to conceal any hierarchy of form. In her words, he synthesized “brushstroke and pigment, drawing and painting, line and pattern,” an equilibrium she likewise aspires to. Like the great fauve, Pétrovitch’s canvases are permeated with brilliant hues, bold modeling, and indeterminate, horizon-less spaces. All her own, though, is the unsettling duality her canvases evoke: the colors saturated yet somehow translucent, the figures plainly of this world and equally phantasmal.

Man’s best friend

Françoise Pétrovitch is a prize-winning artist renowned in France and Switzerland, best known for her depictions of animals, young people, and natural landscapes, seeming to combine everyday observations with fairytale imagination. She works across painting, drawing, sculpture, decorative arts, books, video, and live performance, and has shown her work in sleek contemporary art museums, medieval chateaux, and public parks. Such diverse displays cohere with the artist’s uncanny and masterful melange of styles, influences, and scale. In her newest body of work, she manages to reinterpret the penetrating interiority of Early Netherlandish portrait painting, the melodrama of the Mannerists, and the palette of Pop Art for a contemporary imagination.

Here’s looking at you, kid.

With one exception, the eight large-scale paintings in Indigo Children portray young people. They appear in a variety of poses and relations without environmental context. None meet the viewer’s gaze. They look down, or at a smartphone; they cover their eyes with a hand or a mask; they stare, emptily, just off-center. Playful colors belie these melancholic scenes. Pétrovitch seems to indicate these young people are caught in an isolating “in-between”: identities-in-progress, souls in flux. Curiously, several visages are harshly illuminated—almost bright white—as if by a spotlight, flashbulb, or, likely, the blue hum of a screen. There is no mistaking the menace of this unnatural glow, the signature imprint of our tech-addled culture. Perhaps Pétrovitch’s larger-than-life frames beat back against the tyrannical little rectangle buzzing in our pockets.

Françoise Pétrovitch, Indigo Children is on view through November 12th. We look forward to welcoming you into our Madison Avenue gallery to witness these exquisite works in person!

About Helwaser Gallery

Established in Paris in 1986, Helwaser Gallery specializes in Post-war and Contemporary art, featuring seminal artists such as Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Adolph Gottlieb, and Yayoi Kusama. The gallery was originally located in rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, Paris, and initiated noteworthy exhibitions, including a retrospective on Jean Dubuffet (1996), curated in partnership with Galerie Pascal Lansberg. Other exhibitions include Rencontre de Personnages (An Encounter between Figures), which presented a rich selection of French cubist masters, notably George Braque, Jean Metzinger, and Pablo Picasso (2004). In 2008, Helwaser Gallery marked its inaugural relocation to New York with the exhibition Red, which brought together Post-War artists, such as Hans Hofmann, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.

In 2019, Helwaser Gallery will open its remodeled Upper East Side gallery space with a public exhibition program. The program will promote emerging and established contemporary artists, working across the mediums of painting, sculpture, and cinema. The exhibition program centers on national histories and geographies, and aims to connect with significant historical cultural movements. This focus on contemporary projects continues to be paired with a yearly exhibition devoted to post-war and contemporary art, linking the history of the gallery with its new curatorial vision. More details on participating artists will be announced in Winter 2018.

Helwaser Gallery has participated in the following art fairs: The Armory Show, Art Miami, Palm Beach Art Fair, The Salon Art + Design, Paris Art + Design and Brafa (Brussels), Art Southampton, and others.
