     Bonsai miniatures  11″ x 14″, 2016 - 2017               


Bonsai Garden is driven by Robert Egert’s continued interest in the human body, biologic processes, and their cultural interpretation. Bonsai Gardens explores how the scale of paintings creates different dynamics of production and consumption. Miniatures reduce  both the scale and force of gesture and eliminate visual immersion that are hallmarks of large-scale paintings. Miniature scale demands close proximity and elevates details of surface, edges and other formal qualities of finish.

Ginsburg can arguably be called the Clown Prince of pet portraiture, he never lets his prodigious painting skill get in the way of his sense of fun and deeply authentic self-expression. Loved by fellow artists - his work is found in the collections of Sol Lewitt, William Wegman, and many, many colleagues — he also works as an advocate for the community and bringing more people together with art and its creators. Also an avid supporter of animal rescue, he once again is donating a portion of his proceeds to the lifesaving and heartwarming programs of Williamsburg’s own BARC.

Angiola Churchill MY WORLD, MY ART.jpg
With the Guggenheim and the Whitney Museum featuring female art icons Agnes Martin and Carmen Herrera currently, Holland Tunnel Gallery is proud to present “My World, My Art” with works by Angiola Churchill, another iconic woman artist of the same generation. At 94, she is working in her Manhattan studio on “Variations in A Square”. Gallery-director Paulien Lethen invited her to show works on paper from this series, together with “Labyrinths”, 3-dimensional works in square lucite boxes, and “Transformations”, origami-style folded NYT advertisements.
Angiola Churchill has an international art career, spanning over 70 decades, living and working periods of time in Venice.
Ms Churchill herself was the radiant center of the festive opening reception in October. You are welcome to enjoy her lively art at Holland Tunnel, where director Paulien Lethen will be present for information throughout the show.

TRANSFORMATION
”Horror - the New York Times, aristocrat of the newspaper world, is advertising items for sale.
I am a snob, and I am against it!
I dont want sales advertisement combined with discussion of national and world problems.
So I take those advertisements, and make them say something else - something about art

sep 16 - oct 16

Marieken Cochius 2016: A tension between what is present and what is sensed, but cannot be touched, continues to be the most consistent theme in my work. I am inspired by the origins of life, where energy needs to be temporarily contained and constrained in order for a transformation to happen.

In our worlds chaos predominates. There are no boundaries, everything is in flux and patterns are temporary, yet detected networks and systems exists.
 This duality inspires me to try to catch the sensuality of the immaterial.
This new body of work is called: A Space Once Occupied, Now Empty. It is an exploration of empty space re-imagined occupied by the absent in two ways.
