Joshua Liner Gallery Presents: “Direct Address: An Inaugural Group Exhibition” (Manhattan, NYC)

Joshua Liner Gallery is proud to announce the opening of its new home—a street-level, 2,600-square-foot exhibition space located at 540 West 28th Street in the Chelsea Arts District. The gallery’s relocation to a ground-floor space contributes to the life of this burgeoning block, which boasts new high-rise construction, the final section of the High Line, and redevelopment of Hudson Yards just to the north.

To celebrate this milestone move, the gallery is pleased to present Direct Address, an inaugural group exhibition featuring works in diverse media by longtime gallery figures as well as new additions to the program. Participants include the following artists:

Alfred Steiner, Clayton Brothers, Cleon Peterson, Dave Kinsey, David Ellis, Evan Hecox, Greg Lamarche, Ian Francis, Jean-Pierre Roy, Kris Kuksi, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, Richard Colman, Riusuke Fukahori, Shawn Barber, Stephen Powers, SWOON, Tiffany Bozic, Tomokazu Matsuyama, and Tony Curanaj.

Direct Address makes full use of the gallery’s 500+ square feet of added space and 15-foot ceilings. Graphic design, typography, digital imagery, and assorted printing techniques variously inform works in painting, mixed media, and collage by the Clayton Brothers, Evan Hecox, Greg Lamarche, and SWOON. Allusions to cartoons, cultural icons, and the collective unconscious turn up in watercolor-on-paper works by Alfred Steiner, as well as in Cleon Peterson’s stylized depictions of mass violence. Working in enamel on aluminum, sign-painter-turned-artist Stephen Powers combines image and word in a new selection of his visual aphorisms, or Daily Metaltations.

Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to announce the 2012 Summer Group Exhibition showcasing 16 artists, including established gallery regulars and newcomers. This presentation will feature painting, sculpture, and drawing, with works by the following artists – Alfred Steiner, Clayton Brothers, Cleon Peterson, Damon Soule, Daniel Rich, David Ellis, Ian Francis, Jean-Pierre Roy, Kris Kuksi, Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, Riusuke Fukahori, Tat Ito, Tiffany Bozic, and Tomokazu Matsuyama.

Showing for the first time at Joshua Liner, the Southern California-based Clayton Brothers (Christian and Rob) draw inspiration from their immediate environment, incorporating local businesses, neighborhood regulars, and snippets of overheard conversations as subjects for their paintings. Composing their pieces conjunctively- motifs, gestures, places, and figures reoccur within different works, creating inter-linked dramatic scripts. The duo received their first major museum exhibition in 2010 with Clayton Brothers: Inside Out at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMOCA) in Madison Wisconsin.

The German-born, Brooklyn-based painter Daniel Rich will also be showing for the first time at the gallery; known for his matte-flat interpretations of photojournalistic images, Rich will include the painting BT Tower London—a seductive, large-scale close-up of the famous telecom tower—which will be featured in the fall exhibition Daniel Rich: Platforms of Power at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Additional newcomers to the gallery include Alfred Steiner, whose delicate watercolor on paper works depict a mashup of plant, animal, and human anatomy with objects from material culture; Jean-Pierre Roy’s futurist/fantasy landscape paintings; hyper-stylized graphic abstractions by painter Mario Martinez (aka, Mars-1); and works of 3-D painted fish encased in resin by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori.

Summer Group Exhibition will feature gallery regulars, including painters Tat Ito and Tomokazu Matsuyama, whose colorful, large-scale works blend contemporary hard-edged abstraction with traditional Japanese motifs. Also on view will be works of sculptural assemblage by Kris Kuksi as well as paintings by Cleon Peterson, Damon Soule, David Ellis, Ian Francis, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, and Tiffany Bozic.

Joshua Liner Gallery Presents: David Ellis and Kris Kuksi “Go West” At Mark Moore Gallery (Culver City, CA)

Go West

David Ellis Busted Plume 2012 (Image © courtesy of the gallery)

Opening Saturday, July 14th at Mark Moore Gallery, Go West will feature concurrent solo exhibits by David Ellis and Kris Kuksi. David Ellis will present a recent kinetic sound installation, Busted Plume (shown above), which was previously exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. Ellis will also be exhibiting sculpture, paintings, and his “motion painting” video works. Kris Kuksi will debut new mixed media assemblage works, including The Arousal of De-evolution (shown below) as well as the Churchtank Type 9 bronze.

Following GO EAST – the first incarnation in a two-part “gallery swap” project with Joshua Liner Gallery (NY) – Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to announce GO WEST: David Ellis and Kris Kuksi, featuring two concurrent solo exhibitions curated by Joshua Liner. While the show makes for Ellis’ third solo exhibition in Los Angeles, it will be Kuksi’s first local solo presentation of new work.

Drawing upon a formative childhood in a musical household, David Ellis composes syncopated rhythms, playful scores, and intricate beats with the most homespun of resources. Trash bags, empty paint pans, and crumpled papers shudder, crunch, and rustle in a meticulously programmed arrangement that emulates Ellis’ fondness for the authenticity of hip hop and improvisation of jazz. Showcasing his belief in the musical “flow” present in all aspects of daily life, 2011’s “Busted Plume” (previously exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego) stages an audible but unassuming performance born of painstakingly placed springs, wires, and solenoids within a standard municipal trash can. Similarly, Ellis’ large-scale paintings feature the reoccurring presence of uninhibited motion as black swaths of paint bob and weave their way through an amalgamation of quotidian images, objects, and colors; elegantly forging a cadence analogous to the artist’s aural compositions. Kris Kuksi, featured in the Project Room, is also heralded for his scrupulous craftsmanship. Rife with the chaos of man’s struggle for survival and power, Kuksi’s sculptural wall works portray apocalyptic dioramas. Elaborate scenes of industrial-meets-Old-World pandemonium present miniature soldiers, skeletons, animals, factories, and military structures wreaking havoc in otherworldly ruins. Ornate in his depiction of “the fallacies of Man,” Kuksi’s three-dimensional works are not simply replicas of fantasy, but rather shape a macabre likeness to our ultimately futile quest for accumulation.
