Sara Ludy, Unearth



Bitforms Gallery
Opening: Thursday March 28, 6 – 8 PM
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 11 AM – 6 PM & Sunday 12 – 6 PM





Unearth is informed by the mutability of the natural world. For her second solo exhibition with bitforms gallery, Sara Ludy applies attributes distinctive of her digital practice to sculpture. Transparent, enmeshed forms made of Waken Glass, a new medium developed by Upterior that unites glass and copper, transition immaterial elements of the artist’s visual language into three dimensions. The exhibition engages nature’s durational cycles of preservation and decay using real and virtual ornithological elements. A celestial union emerges, transforming the gallery into a hybrid aviary.

Subsurface Hell, Ludy’s inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery, presented a series of the artist’s investigations into organic environments. Clouds (2018) are a series of animated reliefs that render billowing canopies of water vapor into rhythm. The resulting landscape is mediated by generative motion of layered texture and color. New works in Unearth compound this methodology, casting abstract ephemerality into physical structures of Waken Glass. Perches (2018) appear empty, even vulnerable, floating in a tuft of blackened copper mesh. However, their glistening surfaces act as an offering, or site of potentiality that nods to the transience of the natural world.

As the exhibition continues, the spirit of an aviary unfolds. Nests (2018), sculptural habitats for imagined birds, sit opposite a live streamed projection of a nature cam. Frequently used for wildlife habitats or nature preserves, this video feed allows viewers to observe wildlife online. Trough 3 (2018) exists as a live streamed artwork, broadcast from a plinth in a nondescript high-rise. The sculpture remains unaffected as the world around it turns; birds soar to and from a neighboring sanctuary and the sun repeats its daily ritual of rising and setting. Trough 2 (2018) hangs from the ceiling in suspension. The artwork offers a similar experience to that of Perches and Nests—its silence calls for attention. Troughs inspire pause, a characteristic typically required for Ludy’s time-based work. Action is withheld from the artworks in an effort to accentuate the surrounding environment. The adjacent display of both Troughs further obscures the duality of lived experience and simulation. All streamed content is hosted online at www.birdsmadeearth.com.

Astral influences abound in Ludy’s work, encouraging the astronomical connection of the photo Cygnus (2019). The image, one of the artist’s inspirations for Unearth, depicts a swan in flight with wings outstretched, is only visible in isolated environments free of light pollution and cloud coverage. This elusive quality positions Cygnus somewhere between real and imagined. Refract (2018–19) also exists between these temporalities. While created with digital technology, the artwork is brought from the screen to canvas. The digital painting reflects imagery seen by the artist as varying layers of fractal depth. Prisms fold and disperse, unraveling the image plane like the reflective qualities of Waken Glass. Core Samples (2018) also speak to the stars, encapsulating explosive, stellar reactions. Shapes of molten copper imitate figures seen within the Clouds series. The artworks glow like pixels, transmuting the luster of the virtual world into winking stars.

Unearth is created in collaboration with Upterior. Upterior invests into research and development of new materials with applications in design, art, and architecture. All sculptures in the exhibition were created by Sara Ludy using patent-pending technology behind Waken Glass™ from Upterior ®. Through innovation and design, the company aims to strengthen and elevate the relationship between the person and the physical world. For more on Upterior and the invention of Waken Glass, visit www.upterior.com and Instagram @upterior.

The artist and gallery would like to thank LIFEWTR for their generous support.

Felipe Baeza, Julia Bland, Arghavan Khosravi and Oren Pinhassi


Yossi Milo Gallery 
March 16 – April 27, 2019
Tuesday - Saturday, 10am - 6pm
or by appointment

245 Tenth Avenue
(between 24th & 25th St.)
New York, NY 10001


Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce Four, a group exhibition featuring works by Felipe Baeza, Julia Bland, Arghavan Khosravi and Oren Pinhassi. All four artists in the show give form to personal experiences through material and color. Dusty pastels, velvety darks, and scuffed surfaces run through the works, inducing a contemplative atmosphere where subtle references to different histories and narrative can emerge. The exhibition will open on Saturday, March 16 with an artists’ reception from 6:00 - 8:00 pm and will be on view through Saturday, April 27.

Felipe Baeza’s (Mexican, b. 1987) paintings are an oppositional force against historical iconography. He uses his own biography and interests in migration, sexuality, and anthropology to assert an individuality outside of the strictures and disappointments of language. The results are representations of a seemingly mythic figure floating in space to more lyrical depictions of sexual contact that magnify life to heroic proportions. Baeza primarily works on paper through a process converging printmaking and collage techniques and refuses conventional strategies of portrait painting that obliquely describe subjects by use of props, possessions or space. Instead, Baeza inverts the direction, working from the inside out in highly aesthetic, detailed portraits that directly express the inner lives and frustrations of his fantastical hybrid bodies. Compelled by the force of their enigmatic characterizations, Baeza’s portraits and narrative scenes are captioned by descriptive and yet poetic titles that ultimately unveil the semi-autobiographical and historical context inside which his situations between the real and imaginary are intertwined. For example, I have eyes where they can best protect me, 2019, suggests an environment within which his hybrid body lives and is persistently susceptible to hostile conditions.

Baeza received his B.F.A. from The Cooper Union in 2009 and his M.F.A. from the Yale School of Art in 2018. Baeza will be included in the forthcoming exhibition Nobody Promised You Tomorrow: Contemporary Art in the 50th Year of the Stonewall Era, Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY. Recent exhibitions include XL Catlin Art Prize, San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, CA, travelling to Linda Warren Projects, Chicago and New York Academy of Art, New York, NY, No Longer Yours, The Mistake Room/Anonymous Gallery, Mexico City, Mexico, Tails, Next to Nothing, New York, NY, Demolition WoManhood, Skibum MacArthur, Los Angeles, CA; Reconstruir, 41 Cooper Gallery, The Cooper Union, New York, NY; New Prints 2017/Summer, selected by Katherine Bradford, International Print Center, New York, NY, and Carving Through Borders, Galería de la Raza, San Francisco, CA. He lives and works between New Haven, CT, and Brooklyn, NY.

Julia Bland’s (American, b. 1986) abstract wall hangings feature archetypal and geometric forms woven into assertively symmetrical compositions. Her works begin with patterns crafted on her loom before dyed, stitched and painted fabrics, and fragments of painted canvas and linen are cut, glued, sewed, burned and tied into the works. The artist’s gridded elements are patterned on mathematical formulas inspired by sacred geometry, and the notion that repetitive structures and rhythms reveal cosmic processes and the vibrations of the universe. Also building on post-minimalist investigations of materiality and context, her surfaces communicate through their physical presence as well as the history of their intersecting processes. The results of Bland’s intricate handiwork and unswerving reverence towards the materials of her practice are artworks that meld painting, weaving, and netting with commanding tactile presence.

Bland earned her B.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008 and her M.F.A. from Yale University in 2012. She has been an artist in residence at The MacDowell Colony; The Shandaken Project; Sharpe-Walentas Space Program; Lighthouse Works, Yaddo; Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild; and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, and was honored with the Milton and Sally Avery Fellowship; Carol Scholsberg Memorial Prize; Jacques and Natasha Gelman Trust Travel Fellowship; and the Florence Leif Award. The artist currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Arghavan Khosravi’s (Iranian, b. 1984) mixed media paintings interweave historical Persian motifs with 21st-century imagery borrowed from popular culture and contemporary media. Replete with surreal situations, objects and characters that demand a narrative only the viewer can provide, the paintings evoke a sense of historical and personal affairs being out of balance. State monuments, state actors, archeological relics and traditional Iranian textiles ornament and frame Khosravi’s images both visually and culturally, while painted figures appear unmoored by gravity or masked by unexplained blindfolds. Featuring tromp-l’oeil female bodies that reach beyond national boundaries and traditional historical narratives, Khosravi’s detailed works provide an alternative space for reflection within reality.

Khosravi earned an M.F.A. in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design, a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Islamic Azad University of Tehran, and an M.F.A. in Illustration from University of Tehran. Her works have been exhibited in New York, Iran, and throughout the U.S., and are in the permanent collections of the Rhode Island of School of Design Museum and Newport Art Museum, both in Providence, RI, as well as many private collections. Khosravi currently lives and works in Provincetown, MA.

Oren Pinhassi’s (b. 1985) art combines the logic of architecture and sculpture in his construction of fluid, eroticized installations designed to thwart one’s traditional associations and encoded behaviors. Pinhassi arranges his sculptures in simulation of queer sites where the boundaries between bodies and objects is blurred and played with, setting the scene for encounters with and among each work. Everyday things such as an umbrella, a cheval mirror frame, or a bath towel are worked over in various media including plaster, burlap, sand, and Vaseline until the original object and its perceived use is masked. The synergy and static choreographed by the artist between his amorphous objects and the viewer form the basis of Pinhassi’s disruptions of habit. Familiar yet strange, archaic yet contemporary, funny yet foreboding, the ultimate “site” of the artist’s works lies outside fixed definition.

Pinhassi received an M.F.A. from Yale University after earning his B.F.A. at Hamidrasha School of Art, Beit Berl, Israel and is the 2011 recipient of the Shlomo Witkin Prize for Excellence in the Art Field. He recently had solo exhibitions at Edel Assanti (London, UK), Skibum MacArthur (Los Angeles, CA), Ribot Gallery (Milan, Italy) and at the Petach Tikva Museum, Israel. His work has been featured in group shows at David Zwirner (New York, NY) Galerie Eva Meyer (Paris, France), Andrew Rafacz Gallery (Chicago, IL), and Magenta Plains (New York, NY). Pinhassi was a recipient of the Shanadanken Project at Storm King Sculpture Park in 2016. Pinhassi currently lives and works in New York.

The exhibition is co-curated by Yossi Milo and Doron Langberg.

































FLORENCIA ESCUDERO | MARCELA FLÓRIDO



Kristen Lorello Gallery 
Costilla de Adán (Monstera Deliciosa)

February 28 - April 13
Opening reception: Thursday, February 28, 6-8pm
Gallery hours: Tues-Sat, 12-6



The gallery is delighted to present a two-person exhibition of Brooklyn-based artists Florencia Escudero and Marcela Flórido.  Paintings and drawings by Flórido are paired with soft sculptures by Escudero.  The exhibition developed from the friendship and critical dialogue that Escudero and Flórido have kept since meeting each other at the Yale University School of Art graduate program, which they both attended.  Their works relate themes of constructed realities, female representation, and memory.

Escudero explores the notion of a fictive world through hand-sewn, digitally printed sculptures that parse elements of the female body, sometimes through proxies.  Stand-ins include fashion accessories and doll parts.  Escudero gathers imagery from digital space that relates to versions of fantasy and desire often circulated in mass media.  Within her broader practice, Escudero positions the sculptures inside the rooms of 'love hotels' (which have fantastical and kitschy interiors designed to enhance the experience of lovers) and photographs them.   This process helps her to think about how love can be redefined beyond the version of it that consumer culture presents.

Flórido's paintings of plants native to Brazil, and her drawings of the female portrait, convey charged energies and temporal states.  The motif of the heart, traditionally a symbol of love and intimacy, accompanies the portraits of Flórido's women, creating an overall mood within each of her works.  At times this symbol appears as the leaf of a plant, which in turn exhibits human-like qualities.  Within her canvases, Flórido finds freedom to imagine the different ways that the body can inhabit physical space.  This action mirrors an aspect of her own personal experience of adapting to various places where she has lived during her life and of rendering elements of her home country's landscape from memory.

The title of the exhibition, Costilla de Adán (Monstera Deliciosa) refers to the tropical plant depicted in Flórido's recent painting.  It also points to the notion of Adam's rib, and the concept of woman as an assemblage of parts.  For the artists, using parts of the female form within their own works gives them as sense of freedom and agency to develop their own narratives.  As the artists write, "In the exhibition, these parts function as stand-ins for whole real women in the same way that memory creates a sense of reality which is distorted and fractured."

Florencia Escudero was born in Singapore in 1987 and grew up in Mendoza, Argentina.  She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.  Escudero received an MFA in Sculpture from the Yale University School of Art in 2012 and a BFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in 2010.  Her works have been exhibited at Instituto Cervantes, New York, NY, The Steuben Gallery, Pratt Institute, New York, NY, Selena Gallery, Brooklyn, NY, and Etta Project Space, Seoul, Korea, among other venues.  She was a 2016 year-long Artist in Residence at the Loisaida Center, New York, NY, and has also completed residencies at Art Farm, Marquette, NE, and Pilchuck Glass School, Seattle, WA.  Works by Escudero have been discussed in Editorial Magazine, Aether Magazine, The Art Newspaper, Hyperallergic, and The American Reader.  She is an editor and founder of Precog Magazine.

Marcela Flórido was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1988 and lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.  She received an MFA from the Yale University School of Art in Painting in 2015 and a BFA from The Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London, UK in 2013.  Recent exhibitions include "Laços," Anita Schwartz Galeria de Arte, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2018 (solo), "Snow Days," Thierry Goldberg Gallery, New York, NY, 2018 (group), and "SLIP: Sara Faux, Marcela Flórido, Tschabalala Self," Stems Gallery, Brussels, Belgium (2017).  She has completed residencies at Tilleard Projects, Lamu Island, Kenya, Mass MoCA, North Adams, MA, and The Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT.  She is the recipient of a 2015 Viridian Artists' Prize, selected by Lauren Hinkson.

If we had not loved each other none of us would have survived. — James Baldwin

For at least the past 20 years different organizations and individuals have been producing new iterations of Black Love Fest in cities across the U.S to highlight the importance of self-love and self-determination in our communities. In the summer of 2017 we were inspired by these many organizations and individuals to bring Black Love Fest to New York City with the first annual Black Love Fest NY at Brooklyn Museum. Black Love Fest NY is a free one-day celebration that builds upon work initiated in the The Black School by sharing student artwork with the community. BLF NY is a public event, creating a gathering space for all people who share in love for the well-being and self-determination of Black people. BLF NY will also include music performances, art installations by professional artist, hands-on art making workshops for all ages. The purpose of this project is to illustrate the positive impact of collective action.










Open Call

Camp Solong!








Open Call ~ Goodbye!



Camp Solong invites future campers to submit their applications for joining our immersive, performative outdoor summer camp, this year on Orr's Island, Maine, U.S.A. Open call ends July 1st.

Yes, indeed! Camp Solong is happening again for the weekend of August 10–13th, 2018! We will host six campers (ages 25 +) for a unique, cathartic 3-day break from daily life!

As always, our camp program will focus on the universal task of saying “goodbye”, with a particular emphasis on letting go of a stagnant, and restricted sense of self. Anyone interested in rehearsing and investigating the process of “farewells", “personal reset” and “seriously playful introspection” would be an ideal participant for the camp.

Camp Solong is a collaborative gesamtkunstwerk and a form of heterotopia exploring alternative ways of living through play, fiction, self-sufficiency, and encounters with nature.

Complete instructions on how to apply can be found at campsolong.org

In June, the camp headquarters will be located at SPACE gallery in Portland, Maine, and the camp itself will be built on location in Orr's Island. Camp Solong will host 6 people along with the camp directors, Dafna Maimon and Ethan Hayes-Chute. Each camper will have their own bunk bed in the camp structure, complete with a personal shelf, and a camper uniform. Food will be provided. Participation in the camp is free but travel costs are up to the campers.

There will be a 3-day program, culling from the artists' respective performative practices, including fun,
crafty-and-healing exercises.

Camp Solong breaks down the borders between experience, process and end result while dissolving the categorizations of viewers and participants audience and artists.

If you would make a great camper, apply now!
Of course, feel free to get in touch directly, and don't hesitate to forward our open call!



Best Summer Wishes,
Camp Solong counselors,
Dafna Maimon & Ethan Hayes-Chute

Marcela Florido



Solo Exhibit “Lacos”
Opens at  Anita Schwartz Galeria de Arte, Rio.
January 10th to Feb. 2018.

http://www.anitaschwartz.com.br/exposicao/lacos/



                              





      Mostra individual com pinturas inéditas em grande formato da artista carioca, nascida em 1988, e baseada em Nova York.  Em 2008, estudante da Escola de Belas Artes da UFRJ, ela foi selecionada para uma bolsa na Foundation in Arts and Design na Central Saint Martins, em Londres, ingressando no ano seguinte no curso de pintura da prestigiosa Slade School of Fine Art, em Londres, onde se graduou em 2013. Em seguida, foi selecionada pela Yale School of Art, nos EUA, onde fez seu mestrado em pintura de 2013 a 2015.

Há um ano Marcela Flórido tem seu ateliê em um galpão industrial no Brooklyn, Nova York, que compartilha com outros quinze artistas dando continuidade a uma prática que sempre prezou: o convívio e a troca de informações e críticas com amigos de ofício. O local abriga todos os ateliês e propicia uma convivência de ideias na prática imersiva e solitária da pintura. Ela mantém constante contato com os amigos das três cidades em que tem vínculos profissionais: Rio de Janeiro, Nova York e Londres, e desde 2013 se corresponde com Anita Schwartz, que acompanha à distância sua trajetória.

Para sua primeira exposição individual na Anita Schwartz Galeria, Marcela Flórido produziu cinco pinturas a óleo em grande formato, em cores vibrantes, que trazem como elemento comum a figura de um coração, presente nos trabalhos recentes da artista. Suas pinturas densas evocam uma atmosfera emocional em cenas de romance e conflitos em paisagens familiares a ela. Apesar de morar fora do Brasil há mais de nove anos, ela não se desconecta das questões do país, e um de seus interesses é a presença da figuração na arte brasileira. A artista também discute em seu trabalho um excesso de elegância, a grande presença da herança construtivista, e um “certo tabu” com a figura feminina.

Em cartaz de 11.01.2018 a 17.02.2018

October 22—November 12, 2016
Opening reception: October 22, 7-10 pm

Selena Gallery
37 Troutman St. #3 Brooklyn, NY 11206






Selena Gallery presents Skin Dips, an exhibition featuring work by Dalia Amara and Florencia Escudero.Skin Dips brings work together by two Brooklyn based artists exploring female phantoms, absence, and anthropomorphism. Amara and Escudero transmit a feminine Lynchian vista utilizing photograph and sculpture. Through anthropomorphism, objects and spaces create fantasies referencing the human body. These works emit female beauty terror, the body scrutinized and objectified, which is transmitted into domestic space. The materials used in these creations range from makeup, fake flowers, and sex toys: objects that occupy a place between disgust and desire, banality and trauma. The spaces explored inthe making of the works range from personal interior space to obscure motels, creating a converging of close private space public space. The presence of the artist’s hand becomes visible in their works through the performative making and positioning of objects in these space.

Selena is an artist run space co-founded by Anjuli Rathod and Olivia Swider.
Exhibitions are on view for openings and thereafter by appointment only.









Drea Cofield’s Mural
“Rise & Grind” 


Drea Cofield featured in Precog Vol. 2: Techno S

Ideal Glass
Opening Reception: Sept 16, 6:30—10 pm
22 E. 2nd St, New York, NY 10003






Join us this Friday September 16th for the opening of our new mural “Rise and Grind”, by Drea Cofield. The New York based artist conceived the mural to address notions of intimacy, and more particularly the idea of scaling up works initially conceived as expressive yet confidential experiences. With this piece her intention is to shift towards a more composed, graphic, and physically immersive encounter for the viewer. “Rise and Grind” is both a private confrontation and a larger visceral exploration for passersby. “It’s bacchanalian and violent and altogether human.”

Cofield’s work involves figures interacting– or pointedly not interacting–in other worldly landscapes. Bodies are sleeping or dead, facial expressions and gestures are enacted incongruously with violence and spectacle. Cofield explores the challenging language of allegory to see, experience and feel.
