Join us this evening at 6:30 for a conversation between Gerd Stern and Jim Kempner. They will discuss Stern's multimedia work, Contact Is The Only Love, as well as his 70 years of poetry, art-making, and his interactions with cultural icons such as Andy Warhol, Lenny Bruce, Marshall McLuhan, Robert Indiana and many others. Stern will touch on the infamous story of the "lost letter", the Beat poets' "Holy Grail" that inspired On The Road (Jack Kerouac blamed Gerd Stern for losing this letter for 50 years).

We will be live streaming the event on our Instagram page, so if the rain keeps you away, please tune in @jimkempempnerfineart!

Join us Thursday, February 20, 6-8pm for the opening reception of Jerry Mischak's solo show, Everyday Lives.

Mischak’s fantastical, action-based images magnify the intricacies of daily life. Instead of depicting a realistic scene, Mischak amplifies moments of domestic turmoil and loss of control. Each scene embodies raw physicality and action, and abandons a sense of perspective and earth’s gravity. Objects spiral out of the composition in all directions, creating an elastic sense of space. Mischak’s cups spill disproportionate amounts of liquid, and his abstract shapes mingle with household appliances. These improbable factors, coupled with dramatic neon color, make ordinary problems feel surreal. By exacerbating small mishaps, Mischak allows the viewer to feel the frustration of the day-to-day and find humor in it.

Jim Kempner Fine Art is excited to welcome George Rickey's kinetic sculpture, "Open Rectangles, One Up, One Down, Excentric II," to our sculpture garden.

George Rickey (1907- 2002) is among the most inventive and influential sculptors of the twentieth century. His iconic kinetic works are experiments with wire and metal that began during his service in World War II. By the late 1950s and 1960s he reduced sculptural forms to simple, geometric shapes such as rectangles, trapezoids, cubes and lines. Rickey, along with Alexander Calder, introduced the notion of kinetic sculpture to America in the mid-twentieth century. Rickey became famous for his burnished and polished stainless steel sculptures of geometric forms and especially for his monumental public works, all of which respond to action of air currents.

Open Rectangles, One Up, One Down, Excentric II, 1978. Stainless steel. 15’ x 30”. Maximum width 156”. Edition of 3.

01/18/2020

In "Monday and Saturday," Schneemann continues her morphological exploration of images from archaic sources, media (computer and video/television), art history, and her own body. The piece is silkscreen in nine colors on two sheets of Rives BFK white paper (diptych), each sheet 10.5 x 60".

The final prints are a culmination of extensive drawings and collages on mylar, which were exposed on screens and printed layer on layer in many color variations. The screens were produced photographically, using numerous collages of layered, hand-worked photographic negatives and film positives created by the artist. The edition of 32 is signed and numbered.

"When I lived in New York I was used to the richness and treasures you could find in the streets. When I moved to Florida obviously there was not that same kind of material. I thought, okay, I'm going to live [in] many places and can't be dependent on the surplus and refuse of an urban society. So, what material, no matter where I was I the world, would be available? Cardboard boxes! It was the sort of a practical, rational decision. I still haven't been anywhere where there weren't cardboard boxes...even up in the Amazon."

–Robert Rauschenberg

01/02/2020

Charlie Hewitt’s show “Silk Roads” is extended until Sunday, January 19th.

In “Silk Roads,” which features Charlie Hewitt’s largest paintings to date, Hewitt continues to integrate elements of printmaking, drawing, and collage into his paintings. Lines of loose drawing weave throughout his larger shapes, creating a unified fluidity within the paintings. Hewitt’s abstract forms are distilled versions of industrial subjects taken from childhood memories in Lewiston, ME. Illusions of hammers, nails, hands, wheels, and flags can be seen throughout Hewitt’s oeuvre. In this body of work, Hewitt introduces graphic pattern as a compositional device. Printed from an inkjet printer, black and white stripes and polka dots provide a juxtaposition to the soft washes of color.
