Zahra Nazari Studios Newsletter    Upcoming Exhibitions, Artist Residencies, and Publications

  *Stunned*. That’s how I felt the first time I saw The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai in person at the Metropolitan Museum a few years ago. The love of that piece has been with me since. From its influence, I knew I wanted to explore the Japanese woodblock print style one day! Well, today is the day that I want to share great news with you: I have been awarded a scholarship in Printmaking from Manhattan Graphics Center, where I will be focusing on Japanese Woodblock Prints! The scholarship is for 8 weeks and starts today. I will have full access to the print shop for the entire year, where I will to continue produce prints. I will share with you images of my new prints as they come out of the press. Please make sure you are following me on Instagram or have liked my art page on Facebook to be the first one who sees these prints first.  Below are images of two of my stone lithographs prints.  Stay tuned for the new prints! Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I would always be happy to meet or chat with you.   Share...

BECOMING ENCOUNTERS: Sympoietic Agents of Unseen Atmospheres  by Chellis Baird and Alida Sun

BECOMING ENCOUNTERS: Sympoietic Agents of Unseen Atmospheres   by Chellis Baird and Alida Sun

October 2018 BECOMING ENCOUNTERS: Sympoietic Agents of Unseen Atmospheres  by Chellis Baird and Alida Sun Light, textiles, code, architecture, painting, and sound merge in immersive assemblages that anticipate human behavior in the age of algorithms. What is the manifestation of our actions in a mixed reality where borders between the intangible and physical transform and disintegrate? Conjuring the invisible, quasi-mythological entities that increasingly shape our digital worlds and collective experience, generative forms illuminate and set in motion woven compositions that twist and flow between 2- and 3-dimensional planes throughout the exhibit. From artist-driven code frameworks and real time sensory feedback, the surrounding environment never assumes the same form twice. Anybody who enters becomes integral to a shifting, open-ended experiment of space, materials, processes, and people. https://www.5-50gallery.com/upcoming/   Share...

Temporal Escape- Women of Abstraction in NYC Now

Posted by on 11:37 am in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Temporal Escape- Women of Abstraction in NYC Now

Temporal Escape- Women of Abstraction in NYC Now

326 Gallery is pleased to present Temporal Escape, curated by Jenny Mushkin Goldman and Megan Green. Temporal Escape includes works by Chellis Baird, Hannah Rose Dumes, Victoria Manganiello, Beatrice Modisett, Livia Mourao, Alexandra Seiler, Barbara Sinclair, Yana Ushakova, and Mie Yim. The Denver Art Museum’s show Women of Abstract Expressionism in 2016 highlighted women artists who were seen as collateral by their male counterparts. Their impact in the 1940s and 1950s on the trajectory of art history has been undervalued and underappreciated. While it seems unnecessary to set apart artists by gender in our post-modern society, it is still critical to celebrate the influence of early pioneers, such as Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, and Mary Abbott, on subsequent generations of female artists.   The artworks presented are charged with female energy, emanating in part from sensuous depictions of female bodies. The more figurative components in Yana Ushakova’s otherwise abstract paintings, such as a nipple emerging from the fleshy composition or forms reminiscent of female genitalia, seem to allude to the discovery of suppressed sexuality. Chellis Baird’s sensual works Woman I and Woman II subtly portray womanly forms from organic materials, such as wood, wax, and fabric, which are traditionally associated with women’s work. Similarly, conventional craft materials play a key role in the lyrical gestures of Victoria Manganiello, who uses a traditional loom to create her soft, abstract compositions from hand-spun yarn.   Dumes, Sinclair, and Yim’s works balance allusions to the real world with structured elements and improvisations. In her soft-edged work, Bacchus, Mie Yim creates an intoxicating and mysterious world of snaking, tubular structures and chromatic planes.  Barbara Sinclair’s dynamic mixed-media works are cathartic expressions of her internal world, composed of frenetic painterly gestures, esoteric text scribbles, and the collaging of objects such as old photographs, product packaging, and newspaper clippings. Meanwhile, Hannah Rose Dumes’s abstract work Gussie references objects like a popsicle, a mirror, or a hand while maintaining the enigmatic quality of abstraction. A bolder energy is reflected through depictions of environments from female perspectives rendered in a dynamic palette. Beatrice Modisett has a thirst for exploring new landscapes and perspectives informed by her interest in the subtleties of geological phenomenon. Through exuberant gestures and layering of vibrant color, Livia Mourao’s paintings convey light, motion, and temperature to encapsulate the essence of fleeting sensations and emotions. Alexandra Seiler’s bold yet playful, hard-edge abstractions are created from imagery of her urban environments, which she deconstructs and rebuilds digitally before rendering the final composition in acrylic on canvas. The artists featured in this exhibition are continuing the discourse of their forebearers by putting forth their individual yet distinctly feminine gestures. Despite the differences in style and palette, these works all represent expressive freedom and sensual beauty in a time when we can all use a temporal escape. Share...

Before Mind | Lacey Kim

August 4 – 31, 2017 55 Broadway New York, NY (between Morris Street and Exchange Alley) Generously donated by Harbor Group Management Company Nearest Trains: 4, 5, R Opening Reception: Friday, August 4, 6-8pm Open Hours:  Wednesday, 10am-4pm Thursday, 2pm-7pm Friday – Saturday, 12-7pm Sunday, 12pm-5pm On view 24/7, through window. Before Mind showcases a number of artist Lacey Kim’s newest works in order to engage a New York audience with the “subtle yet infinitely affirming quality of abstract painting” as an exploration of internal, unconscious reality. Bringing together variations of her current style through a gestural exploration of oil paint on canvas, Lacey’s linework expresses freedom, outward expansion, and infinite possibility. Viewers are encouraged to expand their vision of both themselves and their internal realities through an exploration of the intricate relationships between the real, relative, bound, and unbound nature of the shapes she creates. Each painting reflects an experience within a captured moment, seeking to provide a window for the viewer into a realm of connection with their inner reality.  About the Artist Lacey Kim is internationally known for her non-representational style, cultivated in conjunction with her own personal philosophy. Citing Zen practices and philosophy as a major source of personal and artistic inspiration, Lacey’s work stems from the directness with which she both lives her everyday life and paints. Born and raised in South Korea, Lacey received her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from Seoul Women’s University in 2003. She then moved to the United Kingdom to pursue her MA at Nottingham Trent University (2007) and received her MFA in 2009 from Pratt Institute in New York City. Currently based in New York, Lacey has lived and worked on three continents, and her works have been exhibited internationally in cities such as New York, Chicago, Miami, Vienna, Beijing, and Seoul.    For more info, visit: Lacey Kim or contact: lkimstudio@gmail.com  http://www.chashama.org/event/before_mind Share...
