As artist and gallery owner Niza Knoll watched the march of Neo-Nazis on Charlottesville, North Carolina in August of 2017, she became alarmed. As a descendent of family members who were lost to the holocaust and whose father escaped and survived, she was physically shaken that some 80 years later in the United States of America, the same rhetoric of intolerance that started a genocide was in full display. The event conjured images of concentration camps, immigration quotas and families seeking asylum; thoughts of innocent people who were killed because they were considered animals and “undesirable”, but had no place to go. And of the story, written by her father, of an incident with his scouting group just before the occupation of Austria by the Germans. As an artist, she poured those anxieties into her artwork and invited other, like-minded artist to reflect on the same theme. 

In March of 1938, at 18 years old, Niza Knoll’s father Fred Knoll escaped Vienna, Austria with a group of other youths in a secret exodus to Israel. His mother (his father had died before this time), grandmother and uncles were transported to Auschwitz concentration camp where they were all killed. Both of his siblings survived—Niza’s Aunt Lili who migrated to Brooklyn, NY in 1940 at age 17, just barely escaping, and his and older brother Otto, who had migrated to Israel in the early 1930's. Niza’s father recounts his personal story of an incident with his scouting group and a Nazi parade, in a written essay called “The Flags” that will be displayed, along with other written reflections of loss, survival and perseverance.

“Outlined Against the Visible” a Solo Exhibition by Dan Drossman

Pendula Architects Collective (863 Santa Fe Drive in Denver)

July 5 – August 23, 2019

  • Opening Reception: First Friday, July 5, 6-10 pm
  • First Friday Reception: August 2nd, 6-10 pm
  • Closing Reception: Friday, August 23, 6-10 pm
DanDrossman Purge 8x10 72dpi
Dan Drossman Purge Acrylic and charcoal on canvas 48” x 60”

For Artist Dan Drossman creation is his catharsis. Having lived with chronic pain for much of his life, he has come to understand the complexities of the mind-body interaction and how pain can simultaneously be a brutal physical reality and a manifestation of the brain. He explores this conflict through his artwork, embracing an intuitive process that allows him to connect to his unconscious—the invisible—letting it explode visually—and visibly­—into consciousness and onto the canvas. His paintings and drawings merge elements of graffiti, cartooning, and abstraction to create a unique language.

Drossman is proud to announce a solo exhibition of his paintings and drawings—his first since moving Denver from New York City in 2018. Outlined Against the Visible will be on view July 5 – August 23, 2019 at Pendula Architects Collective, 863 Santa Fe Drive in Denver’s popular Art District on Santa Fe. 

The exhibit will showcase an ongoing series of work that delves into the artist’s psyche, with the goal of aligning the medium with his mental states while giving visual cues. The work is accessible to his audience through a deft use of line, color and other formal elements. Works range in size from small to large, and employ marker, acrylic, charcoal and other media on paper and canvas. Drossman describes the motivation behind his artwork:

“My curiosity lies in the relationship between the visible and the invisible, and the point in which these boundaries meet. In my process, it’s the moment where unconscious intuition is confronted by conscious intellect. In the image itself, it is where abstraction begins to suggest figuration. It’s here where I love to play.”

Drossman grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, received his BA from Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina, and holds an MFA from The School of Visual Arts in New York. He has had solo and group exhibitions throughout New York and North Carolina. He is currently lives in Denver, Colorado and is represented by Ruler Art in New York City (www.rulerart.com). He can be found working in his space at Bitfactory Studios on Santa Fe Drive, or online at his newly refreshed website www.dandrossmanart.com and on Instagram @dandrossmanart.

Pendula is a collaborative of Architects and related professions. A vital community of individuals who have joined their intellectual resources to explore, enhance, and promote their practice. They are proud to use their space on Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe as a venue for showcasing local artists.

Scottie Burgess: Couer Accretions

The word core derived from the Old French word couer, which translates to “the heart or inmost part of anything.” The process of accretion consists of a gradual build-up over time. It’s the mechanism by which planets are built and beaches are formed. Similar to the human body, when a tree undergoes internal or external stress, a burl can develop, a rare and unique distortion of natural layering. This means of growth is not concerned with refinement or mistakes, but instead builds on every successive development, ultimately resulting in the end form. scottieburgess.com

“Individuals are locked into repeating loops, aware that their activity is pointless, but nevertheless unable to desist. The ceaseless circulation of digital communication lies beyond the pleasure principle: the insatiable urge to check messages, email or Facebook is a compulsion, akin to scratching an itch which gets worse the more one scratches. Like all compulsions, this behaviour feeds on dissatisfaction. If there are no messages, you feel disappointed and check again very quickly. But if there are messages you also feel disappointed: no amount of messages is ever enough.” -Mark Fisher, The Privatization of Stress

The cultural theorist Mark Fisher uses the phrase screaming low-level panic to describe the experience of cyberspace in his lecture of cybertime crisis. He argues neoliberalism has created a self-perpetuating control through communication, creating a panic temporality caused by the rapid onslaught of information. The artificial hyper-competition of capitalist cyberspace creates mandatory entrepreneurialism by a consensual hallucination of business and busy-ness: a paralyzing interlock of work and libido. The infinity of cyberspace and the finitude of the organism inhibits the ability to construct a coherent self in the face of constant input. The infinite demands of cyberspace disables agency and produces anxiety.

Instead of engaging directly with the political and cultural forces that create this cybertime crisis, this exhibition is opting to explore a cybernetic demonology of information, possessed animism of tech objects. Demons born from human technology whose hell is cyberspace. In an attempt at soothsaying, this exhibition aims to reconcile our cybernetic and spiritual paradigm.

The polemic of Fisher’s crisis confronts our reality of disseminated information. Will our capacity to communicate save us or crush us in demonic waves of clout? Or more appropriately, how can we free cyberspace itself from neoliberal capitalism?

 

Four Concurrent Solo Exhibitions in Abstraction

BARBARA TAKENAGA: “Manifold”

LINDA FLEMING: “Allusion”

JAQ CHARTIER: “SunTests”

ALISON HALL: “Heirlooms”

Robischon Gallery

May 16 - July 6, 2019

  • Opening Reception for the Artists: Thursday, May 16 from 6 – 8 pm
jq
JAQ CHARTIER - Green/Blue Chart acrylic, ink, dyes, stains and spray paint on panel diptych 40 x 61 in

Robischon Gallery is pleased to present concurrent solo exhibitions in abstraction by artists Barbara Takenaga (NY), Linda Fleming (CO/CA), Jaq Chartier (WA) and Alison Hall (NY). Each process-oriented approach by painters Takenaga, Hall and Chartier as well as sculptor, Fleming, manifests in an uncommon range of imaginative possibilities of pattern and form stemming from the organic to the systematic. The large and small works exhibited utilize an array of media, including Takenaga’s paintings of acrylic on linen or panel, Chartier’s applications of ink, dye or spray paint and acrylic resins on panel along with the artist’s archival dye sublimation on aluminum prints, Hall’s paintings employing oil, graphite and plaster on panel, and Fleming’s chromed and enameled steel wall sculpture alongside works on paper of gouache and pastel.

The four distinctive artists on view offer an opportunity to experience a wide range of color, from deeply nuanced shades to vivid luminous hues, which are primarily carried by mesmerizing repetition and the subtle or dramatic shifts of movement within each artist’s vernacular. By chosen means and the vehicle of abstraction, Takenaga, Hall, Chartier and Fleming visually accentuate and synthesize the binary conditions of order and flux through counterbalance, reflection and process, while alluding to the intimacy of contemplation and the expansiveness of the cosmological.

Joe Clower: Paintings

Rule Gallery

June 27 - August 10, 2019

  • Grand Opening Reception: Thursday, June 27 6-9p
  • New gallery location: 808 Santa Fe Drive in Denver
jc
Joe Clower, Untitled (green bars), 2016, watercolor on paper, 14.75 x 18 inches

RULE Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of paintings by Joe Clower as the inaugural event at our new location in Denver. The show will open with a public reception June 27, 2019, from 6-9pm, concurrent with the gallery’s Grand Opening at its new expanded location, 808 Santa Fe Drive.

Pulling from varied source materials around him, Joe Clower’s richly conceived works abandon the conventionality of time and space and realize uncategorized realms through compositions of floating objects, eccentric environments and depersonalized modernist landscapes. His sharply lined paintings, often on panel, tin or paper, develop their own distinctly private language that jumps from the bizarrely outlandish to the strangely mundane, emphasizing idiosyncratic narratives. Spanning more than 40 years, the paintings in the exhibition trace the development of Clower’s dissonant story telling into a fully formed visual sensibility and aesthetic. One, however, that still expects the viewer to do the work.

Joe Clower (b. 1937) received his BFA in 1963 from the University of Georgia, Athens, GA and his MFA in 1967 from the University of Colorado, Boulder, CO. While at CU Boulder he became connected with many of Colorado’s new wave of artists as a member of Boulder’s Armory Group and later the Criss-Cross artist co-operative. Clower has exhibited his work nationally since 1964, including exhibitions in New York City, NY; Los Angeles, CA; San Diego, CA; Chicago, IL; Seattle, WA; and throughout Colorado. His museum exhibitions include the Denver Art Museum, MCA/Denver, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Kansas City Art Institute, Whitney Museum of American Art, Center on Contemporary Art Seattle, The Harwood Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Alaska State Museum, in addition to numerous University institutions around the country. His work is in the public collection of The Art Institute of Chicago, The Eli and Edythe Broad Collection, the National Gallery of Australia, and Warner Brothers Records along with many private collections.

RULE Gallery, founded in 1991, has locations in Denver, CO and Marfa, TX. RULE represents emerging and mid-career contemporary artists and artist estates, with a focus on fostering investigative art practices while developing artists’ long-term careers. Outside their robust in-house exhibition schedule, RULE coordinates programming in prominent institutions and non-traditional settings, expanding community engagement with the work. In addition, the gallery actively endeavors to bring greater recognition of the region’s historic art movements to a broader audience.

Myah Mazcara: For Your Protection

Solo Show & Installation

Sally Centigrade Art Gallery

July 11 - 27, 2019

  • Opening Reception Thursday July 11th 5-9:30
m88t IMG3584
Show Includes a 5 Foot Tall Eyeball that Dispenses Art! Skulls! Crows! Pills! So Much More!! For Your Protection is Myah Bailey's first solo show since 2012, and a dramatic departure in style and content from her previous shows. The show includes a pink eyeball room installation, complete with a 5 foot tall eyeball that dispenses smaller eyeballs as well as number of painted crow sculptures and more than a dozen new paintings.

Myah reports that a 3 headed raven has been regularly visiting the gallery, and that it is an omen of bad luck for the entire Front Range.

Out of love for her neighbors, she has been painting tirelessly for months because it is well documented that the only way for the people of the region to protect themselves is by purchasing one of her eye pieces (which are the not only good luck, but can also offset any bad energy brought by the raven).

The artist will be on hand to bestow good wishes on all visitors at the opening reception, drinks will be served and as always the gallery will include a multitude of prints from some of the most popular artists in the lowbrow / pop surreal genre.

Courtney Cotton - Bing Bang - 2018 - 36 x 48in - acrylic on canvas

When local Denver artists Courtney Cotton & Justin Kedl met exhibiting at fooLPRoof Contemporary Art in RiNO, they found that their work had such a relationship. In the natural world, symbiosis is a mutually beneficial relationship between two organisms, the actions of each somehow benefitting the other. When local Denver artists Courtney Cotton & Justin Kedl met exhibiting at fooLPRoof Contemporary Art in RiNO, they found that their work had such a relationship. Both of their bodies of work reflect whimsy and curiosity: Courtney’s paintings seek new perspectives, different and positive ways of viewing things, while Justin’s sculptures give life and form to strangeness and difference, embodying the bizarre and the inexplicable. Together, their work creates a brightly-colored ecosystem of spots, lines, and tentacles, a space that asks people to walk through life lightly and inquisitively.

  • First Friday Art Walk: August 2 from 6-9pm
Vibrations
“Vibrations”; Acrylic on canvas, 30" x 36”; http://www.aprettypainting.com
 
In her new series, Lisa Calzavara explores the idea of telling stories by transforming thoughts and emotions into abstract pictograms that form an unconscious language. The images are an effort to communicate the feelings and emotions that are difficult to put into words. Individual pieces can be combined with others to create greater meaning and express unconscious ideas. We can choose to accept these thoughts or simply change the perspective (orientation) of the piece to alter the meaning or sequence. This allows us to activate our imaginations and create our own unique abstract stories that express our passions, thoughts and dreams.

SYNC Gallery exhibits a variety of contemporary abstract and conceptual works by a collective of emerging and established artists. Each month select members display exciting work with a wide freedom of expression. Located in the Art District on Santa Fe in Denver – known for its vibrant arts scene – SYNC Gallery has become a destination for art lovers. Gallery hours: Thursday 1-4, First & Third Friday 6-9, other Fridays 1-4, Saturday 12-4 or by appointment.​

The work in Unspoken is driven by spontaneity, impulse and inspiration, born of years' - long dedication to making art. Print-making and painting require technical skill and training, planning and preparation; the energy of creation comes from a deep level beyond the conscious mind, before words and language. With Unspoken, visual images are a product of both the open moment and the life where creation and preparation hemispheres meet.

Serpentine Series II, Judith Content, Shibori dyed, discharged, stitched silk, 6" x 6" x 2"

Tansey Contemporary proudly presents Evanescence, Judith Content Solo Exhibition, curated by and previously on view at the San José Museum of Quilts & Textiles, on view in Denver July 6 through August 24, 2019. Evanescence features a selection of textile works and a ceramic installation by Palo Alto, California artist Judith Content. Known for her use of discharge dyeing and shibori dyeing technique, Content’s work references the natural landscape with painterly movement to explore place and memory.

Inspired by various elements of Japanese culture—haiku poetry, wagashi confections, and kimonos—Content creates her textile works using complex arashi and itajime shibori dyeing techniques on silk, her preferred material. A master of shibori techniques, Content has spent four decades mastering its variations. Content’s compositions also evoke a Japanese aesthetic.

She looks to the natural world in its myriad forms: inlets, coastal marshes, fog, majestic mountainscapes, desert canyons, an expanse of sky. Content’s abstract interpretations provide space for the viewer to form their own relationship with each artwork. While her background in watercolor surfaces in her bold, painterly use of color and line. She aspires to create subtle visual tension by intersecting dynamic and harmonious elements in each work.

Content’s art has been exhibited nationally and internationally; numerous institutions hold her work in their permanent collections including the de Young Museum, Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, Museum of Arts and Design, San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, International Shibori Collection, and the State of New Mexico’s public art collection. She has served as juror for Quilt National and Quilt Visions and as president of Studio Art Quilt Associates where she established the exhibition program.

Between life, death and past existence. Woven into nostalgia and wrought from memories, there shines a lantern that gleams like golden earth.

The colour ochre has long held special meaning in the work of artists Hemlock, an alchemist of traditional ink and digital art, inspired by Autumn, and the magick of nature, and Aria Fawn, a dirt witch with an infatuation for watercolour, graphite, and all things living and dead, as creators. This show is a fusion of their unique relationship with the golden colour, and the role it plays in their art and lives.
