Fontana, Concetto spaziale, Attesa (64 T 101), 1964
With the Slashes Fontana participated in the activity of the ZERO and Nul groups, that were the two pole of the new visual research in Europe, both in an "optical" sense and in an inventistic" almost "Neo-Dadaist" sense. And within this context the "slash" was accepted in all its purity as an essential and elementary creative gesture: in the combination of its activistic gestural, manual aspect and its formal conceptual value (and thus also in its monochromatic aspect)." (Enrico Crispolti, Lucio Fontana. Catalogo ragionato di sculture, dipinti, ambientazioni, 2006).

12/16/2020

Kandindsky was born on this day! Kandinsky taught law at Moscow University but the course of his life changed at 30 years old when he discovered one of Monet's "Haystack" paintings at an exhibition. Astonished by the use of light and color, he experienced an epiphany of sorts and became determined to become a painter.
.
Widely recognized as a pioneer of Abstraction, Kandinsky's early style embraced Impressionism: "Kochel-Gabriele Münter", 1902 is a typical example of that time, depicting his lover, and former student.
.
Despite being raised in a family that discouraged women from a career in the arts, Münter attended Munich's progressive Phalanx School, where she studied with Kandinsky. From friends to lovers, they became engaged in 1903, although Kandinsky was still married, embarking on a romantic travel and painting journey for over a dozen years, becoming partners on the front line of the Avant-Garde movement.
.
Münter painted Kandinsky in turn in 1903, blurring the line between their life and visual vocabulary and later becoming co-founder of the Blue Rider Movement, one of the most important schools of 20th-century German Expressionist art, as well as contributing to a number of the most significant avant-garde exhibitions.

...
Helly Nahmad Gallery New York is pleased to present for OVR: Miami Beach, “Parallels” a vibrant colorful display of sculptural masterpieces paired lovingly with paintings which happily thrive next to one another. Jean Dubuffet's 'Site Aléatoire avec 2 Personnages', 1982 and Miró's 'Femme et Oiseau', 1967 are presented with one another to create a duo of cheerful primary colors. Alexander Calder's stabile 'Black II', from 1949 brings movement and deep tones of red to the luscious green of Lucio Fontana's 'Concetto Spaziale (66-B-14)', 1966. The spatial origin of Fontana’s “Holes” elegantly melds with Calder’s own concepts of space, while also contrasting with the static nature of painting. Pablo Picasso's 'Portrait d' Homme Barbu', 1964 brings a human element to connect with Alexander Calder's mobile 'Untitled', 1948 while also creating a peaceful interplay of the primary colors used in each. Our presentation seeks to uplift the spirit, find joy in art and to showcase the interconnectedness between artists and all peoples of the world.

Happy Birthday to one of our all time favorites René Magritte! 🥕🍾✨
.
Painted in 1952, Magritte's L'explication is among his most compelling engagements with the Surrealist interrogation and transformation of the object. The foreground of the composition is dominated by a striking amalgamation of bottle and carrot that sits on a solid wooden table surrounded by examples of its constituent parts.
.
This distinctive combination of objects is an important example of Magritte's theory of ‘elective affinities' in which he explored the idea that the combination of two related objects could create a poetic dynamic just as intense as the combination of two completely incongruous objects.
.
As Sarah Whitfield observed: ‘Magritte's earlier practice had been based on the poetic device practised by the Surrealists of provoking chance encounters between unrelated objects. The revelation that the encounter between two related objects could create an equally intense poetic shock led him to try and pinpoint the mysterious way in which objects relate to one another, to seek out what he called their “elective affinities”' (S. Whitfield, Magritte (exhibition catalogue), The Hayward Gallery, London, 1992).

Claude Monet_Le Grand Canal, 1908

Happy Birthday to Claude Monet! ⚪✨”Le Grand Canal" (1908 is now on view at Musée Paul Valéry, in Sète France for the exhibition "Paul Valéry et les Peintres, Degas, Corot, Courbet, Manet, Monet, Renoir" on view through 10 January.
.
'Le Grand Canal' is an exceptionally rare and beautiful painting from a series of six works that Monet painted at the same time of day in Venice in 1908 during his only visit to the city. The ineffable light conditions of the city are in this work rendered as dappling crests of pink and gold upon the surface of the canal and imbue the domes of Santa Maria della Salute with a pearlescent glow.
.
Joachim Pissarro describes this group of works as, ‘unquestionably one of Monet’s most systematic series... Monet used Venice as another pictorial laboratory, gauging changes in the 'envelope' (the indefinable Venetian 'haze') under identical circumstances. These are two typically Venetian effects that animate these views of Santa Maria della Salute: the filtering haze either heightens the colours of the prism, almost setting them alight, or, on the contrary, it dampens them and unites them in a sort of muffled monotonous harmony’ (J. Pissarro, Monet and the Mediterranean)

...
Created almost 30 years after the Cartoon Jokes, five paintings from Prince’s Blue Ripples series are presented for the first time. While these recent large-scale canvases appropriate satirical cartoons similar to the Cartoon Jokes, the salacious illustrations are partially obscured by large, amorphous swathes of blue pigment. Recalling the unfettered legacy of abstract expressionists, the organically shaped pools of paint were poured over pages torn from Playboy magazines published between 1960 and 1980. The resulting painterly works on paper were then methodically scanned, enlarged, and printed on canvas, eschewing the original act of creation and building on the artist's legendary defiance of the conventional medium.

Richard Prince: Cartoon Jokes opens today Nahmad Contemporary located at 980 Madison Ave, 3rd floor. The exhibition will feature the artist’s celebrated and rare Cartoon Joke paintings created between 1988 and 1991 that appropriate irreverent humor and mark Prince’s cunning foray into painting.

The show also debuts a body of work created over the last three years entitled "Blue Ripples". While these recent paintings appropriate salacious, satirical cartoons similar to the early Cartoon Jokes, the illustrations are partially obscured by large, viscous pools of blue pigment.

"Human energy is a system in expansion in the universe and the real is made of oscillations, waves, beams; a world is a nexus of vibrations." (Roberto Matta)
Chilean born artist Roberto Matta, born on this day, is widely known as one of the greatest last Surrealists and precursor of Abstract Expressionism. Fascinated by multidimensional spaces and fluctuating energy, his visionary aesthetic depicted an interconnected world with complex and dynamic forms.

“Art is a flower which opens freely outside all rules” Odilon Redon.⠀
'The Centaur with poppies' wishes you a day full of joy! ❤️🌺✨
'Le Centaure aux Coquelicots' 1910 is now on view for the exhibition "Paul Valéry et les Peintres, Degas, Corot, Courbet, Manet, Monet, Renoir" through 10 Jan 2021 at Musée Paul Valéry in Sète, France!⠀
...⠀
'Le Centaure aux Coquelicots''s unique blossoming of color is typical of Redon's mature style. Redon (1840–1916) a French Symbolist painter, spent the first half of his career exclusively working in black and white. John Rewald noted how the rediscovery of color not only transformed the mood of Redon's works, but completely changed the range of his subject matter: "Somber visions were succeeded by happier ones."

SUPERUNKNOWN
Max Ernst and Yves Tanguy with Urs Fischer
on view at Nahmad Contemporary through November 5.
.
Encompassing a wide breadth of source imagery, sometimes recognizable and other times obscured, and embodying rich, textural surfaces, Ernst’s nuanced Surrealist paintings can be traced back to his celebrated, early collage technique that he founded in 1919 as a Dadaist inreaction to the destructive and contradictory experience brought on by the horrors of the First World War. Turbulence and uncertainty manifested as a catalyst of creativity for Ernst, and surely as an impetus for the contemporary artist Urs Fischer, whose installation, ‘Gap-toothed City’ (2017-20) articulates the anxiety-ridden zeitgeist of today. Exhibited for the first time, ‘Gap-toothed City’ transforms the gallery space by enveloping the walls with enlarged photographs of a desolate New York City. In the artist’s installation, we encounter an urban setting of metal fences and boarded lots, which have been transformed by their surroundings. The permutation of graffiti, unsolicited ads, regulatory notices and warnings, as well as natural dilapidation, organically collages the landscape. Furthering the sense of distortion, Fischer uses the photographic negative, which inverts the light and dark areas and alters the colors into their complementary counterparts. The resulting work, marked by dusty orange skies, charcoal clouds, and vivid-neonwalls, manifests as a psychedelic dreamscape and renders our once-familiar world foreign. Summoning the strange and disquieted creations of Ernst and Tanguy, Fischer rouses a spatial metaphor for the angst of our contemporary psyche.
