Three new exhibitions featuring the unique artwork of re-emerging older artists will be on display April 5th through April 26th at the Carter Burden Gallery, located at 548 West 28th Street #534 in Manhattan. The Carter Burden Gallery showcases the vibrant, cutting-edge and transformative art that is the product of the unique cultural wealth possessed by older professional artists.
In the East Gallery will be The World Is Not Flat exhibition by Bernice Sokol Kramer and Mitchell Lewis. Kramer’s work features sculptures based on the human figure using fabric and papier-mâché that hang from the ceiling, walls or rest on the floor. Kramer’s background in Biology and a childhood fascination with marionettes informs and inspires these works. Lewis will present mixed media paintings with origins steeped in biblical stories and historical allegories. With a focus on motifs and shapes that play a part in his personal and artistic history, Lewis explores human sensuality and the relationship between men, women and the environment.
In the On the Wall installation entitled The Sky is Falling, Harriet Livathinos explores air, density and depth with mark making. Utilizing graphite and link on Mylar, the atmospheric quality of Livathinos’ work is amplified and informed using ink on a translucent field. The medium flows, fluctuates in opacity, and provides an intuitive vocabulary rich in emotional and dramatic potential for speaking from the subconscious.
In the West Gallery, Sheila Schwid continues the series Reflections On 14th Street. Schwid offers viewers an opportunity to interpret street scenes through the lens of reflection. The oil paintings on display bridge the divide between realism and abstraction. Schwid’s approach allows visual cues to decipher the scenes while using reflections to disjoint the image creating a wonderful tension that is at once familiar and foreign.
