LISA K. BLATT: New Work

January 16 – February 21, 2015

Opening Reception:Friday, January 16, 2015 from 6 to 9 pm


Bruno David is pleased to present a new exhibition by Lisa K. Blatt. Ms. Blatt’s new work continues her exploration of perception and the intersection between nature and culture. Blatt states “Landscapes attract me with their light, beauty, simplicity. I stay for their darkness, complexity, and secrets. My work examines how landscape may be defined by what is not visible, what is memory or what is trace.” This show marks Blatt’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. In conjunction with the exhibition, Bruno David Gallery Publications will publish a catalog on the artist’s work with an exhibition history and bibliography. Lisa K. Blatt works in extreme landscapes, including deserts like Antarctica. Cindy Sherman chose and wrote about Blatt, when asked which one artist Sherman thought was doing groundbreaking work (Smithsonian Magazine, March 2012).

Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 9 January 2015


"The Power of Words," cut paper monoprint, 22.5 X 30.25 inches, 2013

The Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School will feature works by printmaker Bunny Burson
from January 9 through February 11. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30
pm, Friday, January 9.

This body of work is based on a collection of letters recently discovered in the attic of Burson’s
family home. Her grandparents wrote the letters to her mother from 1939 to 1941, as they tried to
escape first from Germany and then Latvia after sending their children to America.

Burson says, “I have uncovered and recovered a lost generation, whose ruptured lives are linked
to mine.” In these works, Burson exposes the layers of the print to discover what is not evident
on the surface, and she incorporates icons (keyholes, shoes, chessboards and maps) to provide
insight into her family’s story. “Perhaps the most important discovery was the life and beauty in
the writing itself. In repeatedly drawing and printing their lines of script, my hand became one
with theirs. Their handwriting became my art.”

“Hopefully these works transcend my own journey,” Burson continues. “Through the visual
processing of my grandparents’ letters, I seek to move from the personal to the universal and to
stir the desire we all have to discover who we are through those who came before us.”

Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.

Opening Reception:Saturday, January 10, 2015 6 to 8 pm

Monika Wulfers explores the concept of line in minimalist sculptures and paintings, as well as computer generated images and constructs. Various representations of lines and shapes created by lines are seen in her work which draws upon spatial and temporal constructs. Recent work incorporates principles of movement and energy and consists of photos, computer generated digital images, drawings and paintings. She uses two and three dimensions to examine the line and our perception of it.

  Opening Reception and Holiday Gathering Friday  
 
New Collections of work highlight detailed artwork at Framations Art Gallery
Framations Art Gallery introduces two new exhibits set to open Friday, December 12. The first of these is a juried exhibit of work by regional artists called "Focus on the Details". This exhibit features work where artists have either zoomed in on an area showing great detail or subject matter that has great detail overall. The juror for this exhibit was Terry Suhre, Director of Gallery 210 at UMSL. The exhibit will be on display through January 22, 2015. 
 
The second exhibit opening Friday is entitled "Nests and Nature: Watercolors by Lee Walter". Walter's work often has the visual appearance of a woodblock or other printmaking techniques. She achieves this through a multi-step process of layering glazes of watercolor paint done through a pout technique. the results are a beautiful depth of tones and masked areas. The public is invited to meet Walter and discuss her work at the reception.  
 
The Opening Reception for the two new exhibits will be Friday, December 12 from 6-8pm. This will also be a Holiday Gathering for the artists and customers of the gallery. During this evening, there will also be a special visit by Resident Artist Serena Boschert, who will be on site to personalize her hand painted ceramic ornaments. Examples of each of the artists' work can be found on the gallery website at www.framations.com.

December 12 & 13, 2014
Opening reception: Friday, December 12, 2014 from 6-9p.
Additional hours for this exhibition will be Saturday, December 13 from 1-6p.

The Des Lee Gallery is pleased to announce the BFA exhibition Living Room Deities by Anya Kavanaugh, a December 2014 graduate. 

A purely aesthetic object is intended to be gazed upon and contemplated. During such contemplation, a painting's self-awareness can create a contractual understanding between the viewer and the object about one's place outside the other, both physically and metaphysically. The human mind's remarkable ability to displace itself from the body's finiteness can enable a complete immersion into the opposing world. When gazing upon a work, the mind becomes a pawn on the chess board that is the object on the wall. Once the object has achieved checkmate over the viewer, the two work together to engage in a dialogue about the consistency of the human condition and its experience of beauty. The expressionistic style throughout my oil paintings, drawings, gifs, videos, photographs, and collages heightens the presence of my hand as the artist; however, the lack of an inscribed signature allows the work to exist within its own mythology outside of myself in order to speak of universal truths of the human condition. The everyday and the extraordinary fuse as fashion models are thrown into domestic environments and the viewer is thrown into mythology.

Duet: Friday, 5 December 2014

Matthew Isaacson (St. Louis) and Lisa Sanditz (New York)
December 5, 2014 - February 21, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, December 5, 6pm-8pm

"Yeah the trees, those useless trees." -Pulp

Like excited lovers in the park, Sanditz and Isaacson carve their 2d and 3d marks into the sapwood just shy of the heartwood. The gouges swollen and distorted, unrecognizable like an overgrown tree bark and vandalism reabsorbed  by growth. In an attempt to reshape their own worlds via Statacco graffiti. Sanditz leaves a handwritten signature while Isaacson impresses a gestural implosion into clay. The pairing grew out of a dual interest in agricultural production and the overabundance of nature in the Midwestern landscape.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 19 December 2014


JASON BLY
December 19th through January 31st
Opening Reception
Friday, December 19th from 5-8 p.m.

Duane Reed Gallery presents the work of Jason Bly. Bly’s oil paintings investigate the interaction between digital media and the tools used to access it. Familiar, realistically rendered objects are coupled with a graphic sensibility of flat color and imaginary spaces to create a juxtaposition of the real and the artificial. Through layering several thin layers of oil, Bly’s trompe l’oiel technique renders an environment of imagery related to the overwhelming visual stimuli which we encounter everyday. His incorporative process mimics our mental adaptation to our modern technological psyche.

If the best art shows are like parties, and the best parties are afterparties, then Are You Gonna Eat That is the after-afterparty. Unveiled secrets, unseen ephemera, trace marks and stains, tingles in the spine: a grass box remembers your prayers, animal butts probe erotic fantasies, Sappho gets lost in a VHS archive. With artists working in assemblage, printmaking, photography, textile, and sound, Are You Gonna Eat That chops and screws the leftover, the discarded and the barely visible.

St. Louis Creates: Works by Local Artists
Nov. 14 - Dec. 14

The Saint Louis University Museum of Art is pleased to host an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 14 at 5 p.m. for St. Louis Creates: Works by Local Artists. St. Louis Creates features art created by nine local artists, and covers a wide range of media and styles. Participating artists include:

Peter Manion, James Holzer, Luanne Rimel, Thomas Sleet, Mark Pappas, Brian D. SmithSarah Paulsen, Stephen Da Lay, Kenneth Worley

Each of them represents a cross section of accomplished local artists whose work is exhibited locally and internationally. 


Thomas Sleet focuses on the process from a deconstructive perspective, while Peter Manion becomes deeply absorbed by its materiality. The work of Sarah Paulsen is informed by personal narrative, and employs a wide variety of media which is dictated by the subject matter. Brian D. Smith, an exuberant colorist, balances his paintings through composition. James Holzer investigates history from the perspective of cross-cultural commonalities of civilizations, which he describes as “a dance between the ancient and the current.” Mark Pappas reconciles ancient Greek mythology with obsessively Renaissance compositions, and expressionist mark-making. Luanne Rimel blends materials, technique and imagery that characterize the human spirit. Stephen Da Lay’s methodic approach to form and content moves off the surface and claims a place in space. Kenneth Worley’s facility in the formal aspect of image making renders him a virtuoso.

TOM REED: everybody knows this is nowhere
LAURA BEARD: The Ravenna Suite (Project Room)
AMY ENKELMANN-REED: Walk with me (New Media Room)

November 21, 2014 – January 10, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, November 21, 2014 from 6 to 9 pm
Gallery Talk: Saturday, December 13, 2014 at 3 pm

In everyone knows this is nowhere, the artwork is rustic in appearance and in mood. The pieces are often characterized by colorfully muted tree stumps, teepees, totem poles, and flowers; however, instead of a blank canvas, Reed begins most of his paintings on pages torn out of coloring books or word finds, which show through the layered paint and add new dimension and character. This process allows him to “start his work with a dialogue.” From this unconventional beginning, he transforms these pages into beautifully stylized panels that can tell a story with just one image.

Reed states that “the link between experiencing nature and imagining it is at the foundation of my practice. The landscape becomes a setting for imagined realities and personal references to outsider art, poetry, and folk art. Taking cues from Joseph Yoakum and Martin Ramirez, I map out poetic and highly stylized depictions of natural settings where fiction and reality meet. In these compositions, intricate patterns elaborate a means to reinvent and question our relationship to nature. Ultimately, my pieces exist somewhere between reality and dreams, opening up a compelling and poetic window on both.”

In the Project Room, we are pleased to present Laura Beard’s exhibition The Ravenna Suite. This exhibition is organized by Cleo Azariadis. Beard writes on this new series of work “Working from the tenant that nonobjective painting in its purest form is both conceptual and primal, I am constantly drawn to the elemental force that remains painting's highest potential. The Ravenna Suite is based on a recent summer residency in Italy and Austria in 2014. My compositions create a balance between the forces of expansion and the forces of contraction. Expansion taken to its extreme results in the creation of bold negative space and demonstrative asymmetry. Contraction taken to its extreme results in a dot of infinite compression. There is significant velocity and volition present in my mark making which describes my process in terms of time, speed, direction, the ability to make conscious choices and exercise control, while continuously embracing the accidental and the random. Perception of my environment, both physically and emotionally, keeps my imagery in flux. I concentrate on creating a body of work but resist any connection to style or reproducing the same painting again and again. What is communicated in my painting can be said in no other way.”

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a new video work by Amy Enkelmann-Reed, Walk with me. “Walk with me is an extension of my practice in focused attention and observation. Interruptions have become the norm and genuine moments of listening and being “present” are less and less familiar. Walks allow me the chance to directly experience internal thoughts. Thought clutter as the soundtrack in nature lies in contrast to the cell phone, text vibration, or air conditioners cranking on. I am interested in unplanned, stolen moments always seeking metaphors that reflect on our culture’s current preoccupations and movement towards the loss of real moments of observation.”
