Please join us for the opening of two exhibitions on Friday, September 15 from 7 – 9 pm at the gallery. One side of the gallery exhibits Nell Blaine’s oil paintings and watercolors, while the other gallery side presents oil works by Biala and Louisa Matthiasdottir. The shows open Friday, September 15 and continue through October 27, 2017.
The exhibitions commemorate these female leaders of 20th century contemporary art across Europe and the U.S. Originating from Poland, Iceland, and Richmond, Biala, Matthiasdottir, and Blaine were unified by their Abstract Expressionist style, a keen eye, and fluid interpretation. With their own distinct styles, they captured scenes of rolling hills, floral bouquets, or a tile floor with simple brushwork and harmonious colors, imparting a sense of security and candor in the post-war age.

Congratulations to Andrea Donnelly, who will open her first solo museum exhibition We’ve Met Before on Saturday, August 26. The North Carolina Museum of Art will show her handwoven cloth and textile works which delicately explore nature and the human body.

Reynolds Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of oil and watercolor paintings and ink drawings by Nell Blaine.
NELL BLAINE
Friday, September 15, 7 – 9 pm
September 15 – October 27, 2017
Blaine was foremost an abstract painter, learning under Hans Hofmann in the 1940s. She immersed herself in the post-World War II New York art scene, which embraced color and gesture through Abstract Expressionism. The acute sense of hue, shape, and line apparent in her oil paintings originate in part from her early stages of art making, characteristically unabashed and intuitive. Instinct carried Blaine through her work; in 1959, she contracted bulbar-spinal polio which paralyzed her from the waist down, forcing her to relearn how to paint. She began painting in oils with her left hand, adding a genuine looseness and determination. This persistence seeped into each scene as Blaine transitioned to a representative style, her hand capturing parks and rivers outside her Gloucester home, and floral studies neatly arranged in her kitchen.

Press Release

 

“[Paul] Monroe (curator) calls him a painter’s painter who ‘painted to paint,’ making him a role model to students. ‘When people
used to ask him why he painted certain things, he’d say it was because he wanted to see the things that moved him. He just wanted
to rock his own world.’ ” – Karen Newton

Donald Baechler’s ingenuous depictions of everyday objects and simplified forms intermingle with worldly motifs and tap into an essential human nostalgia for childhood.  The characters of his art—flowers, beach balls, toys, ice cream cones—simultaneously recall Pop Art and folk art.  Baechler’s series of flower prints, made by combining inked cotton and linen fibers, depict botanical silhouettes and are both painterly and sculptural.

Baechler studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and the Cooper Union in New York. His work has been exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The National Academy, Chelsea Art Museum, and Cheim & Read, all, New York, NY; Centre Geores Pompidou, Paris; Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA; and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.  Baechler’s work is in the collections of Centre George Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Eli Broad Family Foundation; Museum of Contemporary Art, both, Los Angeles, CA; and Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York Public Library, Whitney Museum of American Art, all, New York, NY.

Donato: Fresh will be the first retrospective show of Gerald Donato’s work since his passing in 2010. The exhibition is curated by Paul Monroe,
a retired Richmond physician and extensive art collector who became Donato’s close friend through their art trips to New York, fostering a
similar love for adventure and knowledge. Interested in the subtle transformation in Donato’s early to late work, Monroe distinguishes this
transition by curating one side of the gallery to exhibit more figurative pieces from the 1980s, and the other side to show more abstract work from
the 1990s-early 2000s. The show flaunts Donato’s painted world of funky, character-filled scenes, and his use of unconventional
methods like house paint, door frames, and cut-out canvases.

Donato: Fresh opens with a reception on Friday, April 21 from 7 – 9 pm, and will run until May 26, 2017. The show benefits the VCU School
of the Arts Donato Prize in Sculpture and Painting. A catalogue featuring essays by Paul Monroe, Richard Roth, and Rachel Monroe, will be
published in tandem with the exhibition.

Press Release

“Donato’s longtime friend and art collector Paul Monroe describes [the work] as experiments in expression. Donato applied house paint
on hollow-core doors and often cut holes in them to reveal the interior that could become yet another surface.” -Harry Kollatz Jr.

Teto Elsiddique (Painting Fellow)
Time travel is no longer possible

Born in England, growing up in Sudan and Canada, and now living in the United States, Elsiddique explores ideas of culture, identity, and symbolism within common objects. Through a process of layering and removing, he incorporates objects from diverse cultures–“model train tracks, a wedding dress, and various heirlooms“–to create atmospheric, abstracted paintings. Elsiddique graduated with a BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University and an MFA from Yale School of Art (2013, 2016). He has exhibited at Abrons Art Center, New York, NY; Green Gallery, New Haven, CT; and Montreal Museum of Fine Art, Quebec; among others. He currently lives in Richmond, VA, serving as adjunct faculty in the VCU Painting and Printmaking Department.

Ilana Harris-Babou (Sculpture and Extended Media Fellow)
Tiny House Hunters

Tiny House Hunters presents work inspired by home improvement shows, emphasizing concepts of utility, process, and functionality paralleled between industrial and art niches. Loosely glazed, hand-moldedobjects exist unfinished as Harris-Babou reveals traces of her process— reveling in its creation as  opposed to the finished product. The exhibition will included ceramic sculpture and video work.Harris-Babou earned her BA in Art from Yale University, and MFA in Visual Art from Columbia University School of the Arts (2013, 2016). She has mounted solo and group exhibitions at SculptureCenter, Long Island City, NY; The Jewish Museum, New York, NY; FJORD and Vox Populi Gallery, both Philadelphia, PA. She recently received a Van Lier Artist-in-Residence from the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, where she will be living and working.

The VCU Fountainhead Fellowship is a highly competitive award given to recent MFA graduates who display exemplary talent within their concentration. VCUarts extends one
fellowship per department: Sculpture + Extended Media, Painting + Printmaking, and Craft + Material Studies (two fellowships are given in crafts). The award is jointly sponsored by VCUarts and Fountainhead Development Services. Each recipient is given a studio space, furnished apartment, stipend, teaching opportunities, and an exhibition at Reynolds Gallery.

Andras Bality is a modern-day impressionist, drawing inspiration from predecessors Bonnard and Van Gogh. He captures vistas across Virginia with lightness, freedom, and intensity.  Although based in realism, his paintings blur representation he applies paint to convey a scene’s energy as opposed to its accuracy.  Small, vigorous strokes build into tangible layers, transporting the viewer to vistas of Warm Springs, James River, and Page County.

Bality received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Virginia Commonwealth University and later continued his studies at the Cyprus College of Art (1986, 1987-88).  His work is in the collections of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, the College of William and Mary, Media General, the Medical College of Virginia, Capital One, Markel Corporation, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, to name a few. He is a recipient of a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship and a Theresa Pollak Award in Visual Art (2002, 2013).

Cloth is a powerful conduit for the subtleties of our human experience.  I make cloths with great presence and great vulnerability, investigating psychological and literal relationships between our physical bodies and the world we inhabit through the act of weaving by hand.

The intricate and time-consuming processes used to transform thread to cloth are the conceptual backbone of my work.  I touch every inch of thread in the woven-painting-object-artifacts I create, imbedding imagery and forming figures locked within textile structure.  I paint woven cloth, only to take it apart then weave it again.  Through unraveling and rebuilding this visual language I excavate deeper meanings in the collaboration of tool, material, and intention.  

-Artist Statement, 2017

Andrea Donnelly received her Bachelor of Arts and Design and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from North Carolina State University in 2006, and later earned a Master of Fine Arts in Fibers from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2010. Her work is in the collections of the North Carolina Museum of Art, Capital One Corporate Collection and Federal Reserve Bank, both in Richmond, VA. She lives and works in Richmond, VA.

Natalie Westbrook collages the world around her into vibrant expressions of acrylic, colored pencil, and cut paper shapes. Her inspiration stems directly from life observation, living in the wetlands of Connecticut and traveling across Hawaii. Abstract, yet of the body and nature, her paintings and paper works present a bold take on the interconnectedness within environment, humanity, and the painting process. Westbrook was born in Louisville, KY in 1980 and currently lives and works in New Haven, CT as a painting and drawing professor at Yale University. In 2010, she received her Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University after earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts form The Cooper Union School of Art, and a Master of Arts in Critical and Curatorial Studies from the University of Louisville (2002, 2004). She is co-founding editor of Lookie-Lookie, a quarterly art journal.

Brittany Nelson’s work is rooted in historical photographic elements, including tintypes, which originated in the 19th century
as quick, portable photographs. Reinventing the process through material exploration, she imparts an edgy, modern perspective.
In a series of tintypes ranging in size from 5 x 5 to 30 x 40 inches, Nelson presents the largest formatted tintypes to date–making
her a pioneer in alternative process photography.

Nelson was born in Great Falls, Montana (1984) and currently lives in Richmond, VA, where she teaches photography at VCUarts.
She earned her MFA in Photography at Cranbrook Academy of Art (2011) after receiving her BA at Montana State University (2007).
She is founder of Flatten Image, a professional printing studio based in Richmond.

This will be Nelson’s first solo show at Reynolds Gallery.

Grounded in scientific elements of photography, Brittany Nelson explores the chemical reactions taking place under film, seemingly freezing a moment in time. For the past few years, she has explored mordançage, a photographic process originating in the 1800s which deteriorates the print’s nature, creating a soft, ghost-like bleached image. Her newer work dissects the elements of tintype photography, which she reinvents with novel chemical solutions and layered photoshopped imagery. By implementing the process and allowing the photograph to become denatured, her resulting image presents a poetically conflicting environment which is artificially derived yet organically formed. An emerging pioneer in alternate photographic processes, Nelson received her Bachelor of Arts at Montana State University (2007) and Master of Fine Arts in Photography at Cranbrook Academy of Art (2011). Born in Great Falls, Montana in 1984, she currently lives in Richmond, VA where she teaches photography at Virginia Commonwealth University and runs her own professional printing studio, Flatten Image.

Recent Works

January 13 – February 24, 2017

Opening Reception
Friday, January 13
7 – 9 pm


In Recent Works, artist and author James Prosek exhibits his well-known tea-stained paper pieces
and his most recent oil and acrylic silhouette paintings on panel. A naturalist and world traveler, Prosek
paints animals and foliage in striking reality, often painting his subjects from life. The classic tea-stained
work displays a triage of species, mimicking the format of taxonomic documentation, while also confronting
ideas of classification and re-contextualization. His most recent body of work depicts dark silhouettes of creatures
and plants contrasting a white background, a layout derived from old field guides. In Avian Composition No. 2
(see below), Prosek collages diverse Virginia birds in a painting both systematic and chaotic—unveiling the true
unpredictability of nature, and our constant pursuit to classify it.

The Connecticut native graduated from Yale University in 1997 and currently lives and works in Easton, CT.
Prosek has exhibited at major venues, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA; Smithsonian
American Art Museum, National Academy of Sciences, both, Washington, DC; Philadelphia
Museum of Art, and Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, New York, NY. He has written for the New York Times and National
Geographic Magazine, and has published eleven books, many of which received national recognition. In 2012,
he was awarded the Gold Medal for Distinction in Natural History Art (Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia).

Sally Bowring’s solo exhibition at Reynolds Gallery featured in R-Home, Nov-Dec 2016 issue. “Forecast Calls For Paint” by Jessica Ronky Haddad.

Full Article

Isca Greenfield-Sanders blends the elements of time through paint, manipulating memory, vision, and historical art practices. Her large and small-scale pieces expose a multi-layered process based in photography and influenced by contemporary painting. Beginning with found film photographs from the 1950-60s, she implements a system of scanning, gridding and painting to reference quintessential American life experiences. By deconstructing and reimagining old slides, Greenfield-Sanders implies a collective memory. As color bleeds into faceless figures, her paintings evoke an air of nostalgia, operating as dream-like snapshot of time passed. Greenfield-Sanders was born in New York City in 1978, and currently lives and works there. She graduated from Brown University with a double major in Fine Arts and Mathematics (2000). Her work is held in major collections, including Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; Brooklyn Museum, NY; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Museum of Fine Arts Houston, TX; and the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.

 

Weather Report

November 4 – December 23

Opening Reception
Friday, November 4
7 – 9 pm

Strolling through Richmond on early morning walks, Sally Bowring draws much of her inspiration from the changing seasons and natural subjects.
In Weather Report, she concentrates on the energy within her strokes, establishing an unpredictability relating to weather and climate. She notes,
“the resulting abstract paintings reference a concern for order, selection and beauty, and read metaphorically; the work alludes to cycles, unpredictability,
things seen and hidden, and the repetition of life.”

Coming from New York, Bowring received her MFA from VCUarts in 1983. She is now a passionate leader in the Richmond arts community, teaching
at VCU in the Painting and Printmaking department, and at the VMFA Studio School, while also serving as a Public Art Commissioner for Richmond.

Weather Report will be Bowring’s sixth solo show at the gallery.

Walking the Subject

November 4 – December 23, 2016

Opening Reception
Friday, November 4
7 – 9 pm

In his large-scale watercolors, Javier Tapia dissects the binaries within life, such as good and evil, intellect and primal, control and detachment. Walking the Subject
explores how these opposites manifest in life; abstract shapes and broad strokes become metaphors for chaos and control, or structure and disorder. Much like
traditional Peruvian weaving, Tapia overlaps, subtracts, and reworks layers of watercolor, creating dynamic compositions which emanate physicality.

The Peruvian-born artist moved to the United States in the early 1980s, receiving his BFA and MFA in painting at the University of Texas at Austin (1984, 1987). He currently
teaches in the Painting and Printmaking Department at VCUarts.

Walking the Subject will be Tapia’s fourth solo show at the gallery.

November 4 – December 23, 2016

Exhibiting in the upstairs gallery, Joan Elliott presents recent paintings inspired by Moorish designs seen on her trips to Spain. Expanding on
her previous style, which involved loosely depicted landscapes dictated by color and light theories, Elliott incorporates a geometric flare into her new techniques.
The resulting paintings exist as both delicate and powerful, natural, and densely graphic objects.

Elliott has taught at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for over 25 years, currently living and working in Richmond, VA. She received her BFA in painting
from Virginia Commonwealth University (1978).

The New York-based artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders transforms old slides by scanning and gridding them, and then applying multiple layers of watercolor,
colored pencil, or oil paint. The resulting painting blends photographic and painted elements to reimagine scenes of beach vacations or Nantucket outings. With fuzzy
figures and muddled blues, her painted imagery evokes a nostalgic air that tugs at the viewer’s memory and perception. Balance Point will be Greenfield-Sanders first solo
show at Reynolds Gallery.

Congratulations to Ben Durham and Sarah Briland, both of whom are exhibiting in KMAC Museum’s inaugural exhibition Material Issue. 

“The exhibit will explore the materiality of traditional materials along side film, video, performance and other new media, which are vital to a more expansive narrative that gives greater agency to our material surroundings. The 13 contributing artists engage in material investigations that facilitate a better understanding of our shared environment, thinking through historical relics, new and old technologies, cultural artifacts, domestic goods, and common art supplies.”

A seemingly effortless gesture is choreographed into an emptied field

Art in Print, 2016

by Faye Hirsch, from Volume 5, Number 6

Edition Review

Steadily building a notable oeuvre in prints, the New York-based artist Jill Moser has been working in various mediums at studios around the city and beyond over the past five years. Whether large screen prints or small etchings, her abstract prints are recognizable in the finesse with which a seemingly effortless gesture is choreographed into an emptied field. Loser’s marks veritably breeze into view, full of light and air. Three intaglios made late last winter at Wingate Studio in New Hampshire, during what proprietors Peter Pettengill describes as “pouring snow,” are among Moser’s most lovely. Over flats of color aquatint, Moser composed a wide, porous, brushstroke-like gesture in soap ground. Pettengill reports the work as deceptive in its look of spontaneity. In fact, Moser cannily manipulated the soap medium, allowing it to set, thick and thin, so that in the second plate, the “gesture” is in fact a negative activating the entire field. Over this she printed a third plate in spit bite with a more saturated color. The palette is lush, with one in pink and reds, a second in yellow and silver, and a third in violet and silver. Maybe it was the snowy days, but there prints feel hushed and personal, with the stroke dominating the small square format while remaining weightless- an admirable feat.

Please join us Thursday, March 17 at 4 pm for conversation with exhibiting artist Paul Ryan. 

Since 1983, Paul Ryan has perfected the persuasive quality of abstract painting. He is inspired
by the banality of everyday commercial packaging, and uses these forms as a means for investigating
the underlying major societal consequences of consumerism. In the sun that never sets, each painting
resembles a visual and figurative machine, unveiling Ryan’s process of collection, transformation, and
reproduction of materials—ironically echoing systems of consumerism.

Ryan received his MFA from VCU School of the Arts in 1986 and currently works and resides in
Staunton, Virginia.

Tara Donovan, Richard Roth, and Leigh Suggs exhibitions featured in Style Weekly article
by Amanda Dalla Villa Adams.

“In many ways, Donovan, Roth and Suggs are connected by their analog sensibility, as each emphasizes the handmade, repetitive processes, standardized forms, history and traditional studio practice. The process of making is essential. Perhaps this sensibility begins to get at the appeal behind the art. In a fast-paced world where the only guarantee is instability, market volatility and constant change, alluringly subtle works such as these stop the passerby — not just for a pause, but to hold the viewer’s attention for a moment or two before plunging people back into their frenetic realities of busyness.”

Glasmuseet Ebeltoft: Jack Wax – Cogent Whisper

Conversation between Stine Bidstrup & Jack Wax about “Cogent Whisper”

Alison Hall’s practice is rooted in ritual, meditation, and repetition. Her works are captivating in their formal complexity and subtlety.  From a distance, Hall’s paintings may appear like monochrome color-field works.  On a closer look, the paintings reveal unfathomably intricate geometric patterns as light plays across the surface. These graphite line patterns are optical and interactive; they seemingly change as the viewer moves and light shifts. Studying abroad in Corciano, Italy, she delved into 13th century Italian art and architecture, parsing out repetitive patterning within frescoes, ceilings, and floors of proto-Renaissance monuments. Her reflective paintings allude to this Italian style in both design and material, as precise shapes and angles created in graphite overlap imperfect and painterly gestures of oil paint, all covering a rich layer of Venetian plaster. Grounded in the weight of deep blacks and blues, the imposing paintings still seemingly float as the viewer is transported to the ceilings of Renaissance chapels—glorious yet mysteriously temporary. Born in Virginia, Hall received her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Hollins University, Roanoke, VA, and her Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from American University, Washington, DC (2001, 2004). She has exhibited at Philip Slein Gallery, St. Louis, MO; Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York, NY; The Arts Club of Washington and the Katzen Museum at American University, both, Washington, DC; Kunstgaleriebonn, Bonn, Germany; Taubman Museum of Art, Roanoke, VA; Claiborne Robertson Board Room at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA, in addition to others.  Further, she is the recipient of the Bethesda Urban Partnership Fellowship (2011) and a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship (2011). She currently lives and works in Brooklyn.

 

Artist CV

Nicole Mauser’s paintings demonstrate a version of neo-Abstract Expressionism, with bold swaths of color, intuitively controlled gestures, and layered markings.  She has a keen instinct for color theory and allows her paintings to play in the spaces between control and abandon, real space and constructed depth.  She states, “I am drawn to abstraction because of its ability to easily slip into surrounding territories of figuration and spatial illusion.  In these painting modalities I seek to create a tension between the materiality of the painting and the image” (2014).  Mauser received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Ringling College of Art and Design and her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Chicago (2006, 2010).  She received a teaching fellowship at The University of Chicago, was invited to lecture at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, MO.   She has exhibited at Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, FL; Kansas City Jewish Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS; Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA; and Missouri Western State University, St. Joseph, MO and others.  Her work is in public and private collections including The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KS and The Alexander Hotel, Indianapolis, IN. Mauser currently lives and works in Chicago, Illinois.

Almost Famous & Tongue In Cheek – Style Weekly

Incorporating dripping paint within repetitive strokes and pattern-like forms, Steven Cushner creates works both gestural and concrete. Playing with abstraction and representation, he presents various imagery inspired by everyday sights. Fan-like, bulbous, or open-ended shapes vibrate with intensity as their thickly painted bands emerge from watery backgrounds. Deep, earth-toned color intersects with fluid lines to shape meditative, sinuous patterns. The dynamic compositions further this organic energy, almost mimicking nature with their cyclical, ordered quality. Loosely rendered forms and splashy backgrounds allow for open interpretation of Cushner’s imagery. Whether the viewer correlates branches, signs, birds, or incomprehensible abstractions, the paintings all emanate an electric energy, a quirkiness separate from living things…perhaps conveying the root of Cushner’s passions and spontaneity.

Cushner was born in Cleveland, and later moved to receive his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Maryland and Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design (1980, 1976). He currently lives in Washington, DC, where he teaches at George Mason University and previously taught at the Corcoran School of Art. He is the recipient of two Visual Artist Fellowships from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and the Distinguished Alumni award from University of Maryland.

Congratulations to Sally Mann on the May 2015 release of her memoir, Hold Still.  Dwight Garner of the New York Times describes the work as “uncommonly beautiful.”  Mr. Garner continues, “Hold Still is a cerebral and discursive book about the South and about family and about making art that has some of the probity of Flannery O’Connor’s nonfiction collection “Mystery and Manners” yet is spiked with the wildness and plain talk of Mary Karr’s best work. Like the young Ms. Karr, Ms. Mann was a scrappy, troublemaking tomboy, one who grew into a scrappy, troublemaking, impossible-to-ignore young woman and artist.”

We are proud to count Sally as one of our own gallery artists and dear friends.

Dear Friends,

We are so sad to share the news of Beverly Ward Reynolds’ passing this week. Bev leaves us with lives more creative and beautiful than they would have been without her.

Her mark on the City of Richmond and its creative community is indelible. Through her tireless efforts over more than 37 years, she helped to make Richmond a place where contemporary art could thrive. Her goal to “keep raising the bar,” was achieved time and again through exhibitions by nationally and internationally known artists – even when it meant taking great risks. She took great pride and pleasure in seeking out regional talent and, in her words, “building the case” for young and up and coming artists. When Bev believed in you – as an artist, friend, or employee – she took great leaps of faith, which often resulted in unpredicted success. It is impossible to imagine that this city would be the locus of creativity and art that it is today without her.

For Bev, her primary working motivation was always the relationships she built with people, evidenced by the large number of artists, dealers, collectors, and gallery friends who loved her dearly and feel her loss profoundly. With unparalleled energy, she pushed to realize the greatest potential of each day and never settled for less than the best that she and those around her could give. Her passion for life and art will be missed every day as we carry on her work.

The gallery will be open all week except Thursday, and we invite you to stop by to remember her. I am sure many of us will pause on Thanksgiving to feel gratitude for the many ways she touched our lives.

There will be a reception at Reynolds Gallery celebrating Bev this Friday evening, November 28 starting at 6:30 p.m.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 29 at St. James’s Episcopal Church at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory can be made to the VCU Institute for Contemporary Art or the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (Ovarian Cancer Dream Team).

With love and thankfulness for Bev’s life,

Julia, Alice, and the Reynolds Family

“Using Pantone colors of acrylic and house paint, the artist’s process is spontaneous and evolving while he layers bright colors of summer, inevitably painting over something from earlier.  Following his intention to keep things loose, colors are allowed to blend where they want to blend.  He self-edits, trying something and then rearranging elements.” – Karen Newton

Jiha Moon investigates cultural identity and understanding through enigmatic paintings in which art historical references, pop culture symbols, and traditional folk art imagery commingle. She is fascinated by linking and cross-referencing societal idiosyncrasies and exposing underlying motifs across many peoples and places. Moon’s paintings affect a polyglot visual language that ranges high and low, traditional and contemporary, East and West. She is an adept choreographer of diverse influences: traditional Japanese woodblocks, the Chinese landscape painter Tao Chi, national flags, women’s art (embroidery and weaving), Renaissance etchings, Korean folk art, and Pennsylvania Dutch iconography. Moon states, “I want my works to appear to be lighthearted, breezy and funny. Yet, beneath the surface, they are teeming with ideas, full of old and new, fast and slow, spontaneous and deliberate. I want my work to symbolize the diversity and identity of the various worlds we live in. I want to be a visual interpreter of the mixed-cultural world of my generation.” Originally from South Korea, Moon currently lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Korea University, Seoul, a Master of Fine Arts from Ewha University, Seoul, an Master of Arts and Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa (1996, 1999, 2001 and 2002). She has exhibited at Weatherspoon Museum of Art, University of North Carolina; Fabric Workshop and Museum, Philadelphia, PA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, Arario Gallery, Sarubia Project, both Seoul, Korea; Mint Museum, Charlotte, NC; and Miki Wick Kim Contemporary Art, Zurich, Switzerland, among others. She is the recipient of numerous awards including the MOCA-GA Working Artist Project (2012-13), the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant (2011), a residency at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia (2009-2010), and a Virginia Center for the Creative Arts residency (2002).

Color, shape, and weight merge into a greater organic display as Chris Gregson conveys concepts within architecture, mathematics, and personal experiences. Gregson’s approach parallels the work’s patchwork nature; he works on multiple small panels in tandem, loosely establishing color blocks and relations across several groupings. Through a process of layering and removing, the paintings progress into intricate yet unassuming grids, often relating to one another as similar angles and line work communicate across their surfaces. He states, “My open-ended approach can be frustrating because I don’t have a strict formula…what I let in are the impulses feeding my immediate physical, intellectual and emotional world. What I keep out is a planned agenda, signature style and pre-conceived painting formula. For me it is about problem solving and that moment of inspiration.” Gregson graduated from the University of Arizona and later studied at the Studio and Forum of Stage Design under Lester Polakov, and worked as a stage artist at the Julliard School of Music and Brooklyn’s Chelsea Theatre. He has exhibited throughout Virginia, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Washington, D.C., and Italy. His work is held in the collections of the U.S. Embassy, Guinea, Africa; Markel Corporation and Capital One, Richmond, VA.

Ben Durham’s works depict portraits drained of representation, expressed through road maps or jumbled lettering. He approaches mark-making as a physical and performative act, a repetitive and irreversible process without erasure. In much of his work, imagery is not drawn but sculpted into the surface of handmade paper or delineated by lead lines in stained glass. The resulting portraits exist almost as sculptural drawings, emerging from the canvas in layers of paper pulp which forming tangible yet unidentified figures. Across realistic and abstract media, Durham portrays faces of childhood peers who have turned felons, conveying unpredictability in transformation and identity.

Durham was born in Lexington, KY in 1982 and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Washington University in St. Louis in 2004. He currently works and resides in Richmond, VA. His work is held in major collections, including the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; 21c Museum, Louisville, KY; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA; and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY.
