Common Spaces Presentation

  1. 1. IS PLEASED TO PRESENT
  2. 2. FEATURED ARTISTS DEBORAH BROWN LAUREL GARCIA COLVIN JENNY WUNDERLY JENNY WUNDERLY
  3. 3. Howl, 2007 oil on canvas, 48” x 60 “ Deborah Brown
  4. 4. “I am interested in how we interact with the natural world. My work depicts ambiguous encounters between animals and humans that result from the collision of the natural world with our technological conquest of it. The paintings are humorous and ironic and are intended to provoke and disturb.” Bird in a Bush, 2007 oil on canvas, 48” x 48” Bayonne, 2007 oil on canvas, 48” x 48”
  5. 5. “Contemporary events provide the tableau for specific animal encounters I imagine. I get my ideas from firsthand experience and the media. I collect images of ecological subjects from newspapers, books, magazines, and my own experience and place them Deborah Brown, “East River”, 2007 oil on canvas, 18” x 24” in contexts that I think are provocative and poignant. The larger context for my paintings is the increasingly small space into which the world’s creatures have been forced by our expanding dominion over the earth and its habitats.” Deborah Brown, “Gowanus”, 2007 oil on canvas, 18” x 24”
  6. 6. “I see myself in the tradition of American landscape painting. My work references Frederic Remington and Winslow Homer in particular. From my contemporary vantage point, I like using the vocabulary of late 19th and early 20th century painting ----with its flat, sensuous paint application--- to tell a disturbing story.” Deborah Brown, “Landing”, 2008 oil on canvas, 40” x 60”
  7. 7. Deborah Brown received her BA from Yale University and her MFA from Indiana University. She has exhibited widely in the US in both galleries and museums including the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC and most recently the Heckscher Museum in Huntington, NY. Her works are included in a number of permanent museum collections in addition to many public and private collections. Selected public installations include the Metropolitan Transit Authorityʼs Houston Street Subway Station in Manhattan, and she is currently working on a mosaic mural for an animal shelter in Memphis, TN, commissioned by UrbanArt Commission. Deborah resides in Manhattan and keeps her studio in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn.
  8. 8. Laurel Garcia Colvin “The Enchantment Series” Laurel Garcia Colvin, Into The Woods, 2008 acrylic on wood, 60” x 36”
  9. 9. Laurel Garcia Colvin studies the narrative and symbolic aspects of images taken from her childhood memories in this most recent body of work wherein silhouetted figures of children explore nature lit by moonlight. Laurel Garcia Colvin, Beyond The Garden Gate, 2008 acrylic on wood, 60” x 36”
  10. 10. The fairy tale environment invokes a “sense of wonder and pleasure seeking in this private, moonlit world- a journey of insight and discovery that reflects the inner landscape of childhood,” writes independent curator Dede Young Laurel Garcia Colvin, Along The Water’s Edge, 2009 acrylic on wood, 60” x 36
  11. 11. “Though we may respond to images of a child alone in a strange, dreamlike world with danger and anxiety, we adults have learned how things are; we are doubtful, fearful, and cautious. Garcia Colvin’s images captivate us. They generate the desire to be in/to return to a place of childlike wonder and discovery, to literally shed layer, to unlearn and be completely open to the world, to be freshly in the moment of creativity with an undaunted appetite for new experiences.” Laurel Garcia Colvin, Among The Ferns, 2009 acrylic on wood, 60” x 36”
  12. 12. Laurel Garcia Colvin’s artwork has been exhibited in several New York City galleries and galleries in Barcelona, Spain, Dublin, Ireland, Chicago, Texas, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. Her works are in private collections in England, Ireland, Brazil, New York, California, Connecticut, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois and Texas. She received her MFA and BFA from the University of Texas at Austin, and did post-graduate studies at Pratt Institute. Ms. Garcia Colvin was on the art faculty in the Art Department of the University of Texas in Austin for many years before moving to New York City in 1986. She is a member of the non-profit Ceres Gallery in the Chelsea section of New York City. Her studio is located in Armonk, New York.

  14. 14. Jenny Wunderly, Lover of What Is, 2008 mixed media on canvas, 48” x 48” Jenny Wunderly, No Beginning & No End, 2008 mixed media on canvas, 48” x 48” “Beauty that touches the heart is created by juxtaposing opposite qualities. When formed and unformed elements are part of a finished painting, the beauty of a blossoming flower intensifies, standing out with greater depth and strength than if seen by itself.”
  15. 15.  “My paintings have multiple layers. Like life itself, they begin with dripping and chaotic unprocessed gestures. With each subsequent layer, the image becomes more formed, until there is an intimate balance between unfinished and finished, the murky and chaotic alongside the fully realized image.” Jenny Wunderly, Magnolia I, 2009 mixed media on canvas, 48” x 48 Jenny Wunderly, Magnolia II, 2009 mixed media on canvas, 48” x 48
  16. 16. “Inspiration for my work comes from my intimate surroundings, always looking for opportunities to photograph my children and their friends in my flower garden. One day when I was looking through the view finder I discovered if I took a picture of a flower up close while at the same time focusing on children in the background, I ended up with an altered size relationship between the flowers and the children. Now the children were moving through a world with flowers larger than life, which symbolically I see as a parallel to how a child-like mind experiences its environment when fully open.” Jenny Wunderly, At the Right Time, 2008 mixed media on canvas, 72” x 60”
  17. 17. “My paintings draw on the elementary emotional cords that connect us, making it not only accessible to art connoisseurs, but also to families and children. It does not require previous knowledge of art, and yet uses sophisticated techniques. Viewers are intrigued by the mixed media in my work, its multiple layers, and strong sense of composition. They are attracted by the vitality of its raw and unfinished surfaces, juxtaposed with naturalistic oversized flowers and delicate outlines of children.” Jenny Wunderly, No Higher or Lower Place, 2008 mixed media on canvas, 54” x 54”
  18. 18. Geranium, 2007 mixed media on canvas, 10” x 10” Can You Hear It?, 2009 mixed media on canvas, Diptych, 12” x 18” “This meeting of opposites- the murky and raw next to delicately rendered flowers--creates a tension that draws the viewer in. These elements reflect life as we all experience it, in that every day is filled with difficulty & beauty, the formed & the yet-to- be formed, in constant process & blossoming. Like the lotus blossom with its roots in the mud, my work conveys a sense that uncertainty & growth enhance each other, creating beauty.” Pear Blossoms I, 2009 mixed media on canvas, 10” x 10”
  19. 19. Jenny Wunderly grew up in Switzerland on the shore of Lake Zürich. Her interest in art drew her to New York City at age 20, when she decided to move to the United States. After completing a degree in graphic design at California College of Arts, Wunderly worked as a graphic designer at Primo Angeli Inc in San Francisco for four years, and began painting full time in 1994. Since 2003 Wunderly has lived with her husband and two sons in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in Northern California.
