Observer Culture Selects Sarah Anne Johnson's "Field Trip" at Julie Saul Gallery as a Must to Do in New York's Art World Before February 26th

Exhibition: Sarah Anne Johnson: Field Trip
Dates: February 25th - April 16th
Opening: Thursday Feburary 25th 6-8pm
Location: Julie Saul Gallery, 535 West 22 Street, New York
 
"A documentary photographer with a surreal touch, Sarah Anne Johnson returns to this gallery for her sixth solo effort. Presenting pictures shot at music festivals that are then digitally manipulated, painted and sprinkled with glitter, the artist offers a psychedelic vision of the people and objects populating these counterculture events, rather than the participating musical acts. Pink Forest captures three young men, walking nude into a magical realm; Painted Ladies portrays a hedonistic group of imaginatively masked women; and Uck depicts a collapsed sign atop a pile of hay that Ms. Johnson has trippily transformed with glitter. If you missed Woodstock—which, undoubtedly, most of us did—“Field Trip” might be the next best thing."
- Paul Laster, Feb 2016

If you are unable to attend the exhibition at Julie Saul Gallery New York, you will be able to see "Field Trip" at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection March 5th - June 5th, 2016.

Upcoming Exhibition – Max Dean: I’m Late, I’m Late


The gallery is pleased to present “I’m Late, I’m Late”, our first solo exhibition by multidisciplinary Canadian artist Max Dean.

MAX DEAN

I’m Late, I’m Late

Exhibition Dates:
March 5 – March 26, 2016

Reception for the Artist:
Saturday, March 5, 2-5pm

 

Establishing a metaphor between the gallery and his studio, Max Dean plots the journey of his ideas from inception to realization.  The gallery is open and full of potential; a space where anything might happen. His studio and mind are places of possibilities and playfulness. Both are places in between and whose primary purpose is to provide connections. Come and join Dean’s journey to the edge of his jungle, ride along perilous mountain roads, walk to the edge of cliffs, and cross vast bodies of water teaming with ravenous creatures. This series of photographs - part puzzle, part game – allows the viewer to participate in the artist’s creative process.



Jungle Studio,
2014


Dean is an artist who works with ideas, concepts and emotions visually. His kinetic and interactive sculptural installations are exhibited and collected internationally. Trained as an art historian, his work reflects his comfort and ingenuity in working and mixing both digital and analog technologies. Max is a recent recipient of the Governor General’s Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts.




Swamp
, 2014


His work has been written about in publications such as The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, Artnet Magazine, The Boston Globe and The New York Times. Dean has been awarded the Gershorn Isowitz Award, Joan Chalmers Award, Governor General’s Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts and the Project Award from Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts. He has received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and the Manitoba Arts Council.  His photographs have been internationally exhibited and his work is included in the collections of Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon; Ottawa Art Gallery; Vancouver Art Gallery; Winnipeg Art Gallery; and the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa.

May Warren of Toronto Star on Vivian Maier and Upcoming Exhibition

It's the first exhibit of her work since the gallery purchased about 18,000 negatives from Chicago art collector Jeffrey Goldstein. 

It’s the stuff of Hollywood, or at least an unforgettable episode of the reality TV show Storage Wars: a treasure trove of negatives forgotten in a storage locker and auctioned off to the highest bidder, leading to the discovery of a brilliant talent.

But it’s the true story of Chicago street photographer Vivian Maier, whose work comes to Toronto in Meaning Without Context, an exhibition at the Stephen Bulger Gallery that runs from June 25 to September 10. - May Warren, February 2016

Gallery artist Alex Webb's series "Crossings: Photographs from the U.S.-Mexico Border" was recently featured in the British Journal of Photography in an article written by Guy Bolton. Alex has been photographing this series for over thirty years and it was recently used as inspiration by cinematographer Roger Deakins in Denis Villeneuve's dark thriller "Sicario: (2015).

In interviews, Deakins has praised Webb’s use of colour and complex framing, while director Villeneuve has said: "We were inspired by the work of Alex Webb, a photographer Roger likes for his composition and use of shadows, silhouettes, and colors”.- Guy Bolton

Gallery Artist William Eakin's "Time" Exhibition on Now at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba

Curated by Natalia Lebedinskaia William Eakin's "Time" exhibition is on now in the Main Gallery until March 26th at the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba.

"Devoid of hands and stripped of their functionality, William Eakin’s photographs of vintage watch faces transforms them into markers of time on an entirely different scale. By honoring the integrity of the objects he collects through his photographs, Eakin works to foreground the narratives in which they had participated before reaching his studio – they are simultaneously metaphors of time and its individual capsules. They bring together such complex histories as the cultural production of the Cold War, alongside fingerprints of the workers who assembled the watches. Traditionally, a photograph is meant to depict a moment in time, to hold it still while keeping the surrounding moments before and after forever inaccessible. In Time, Eakin’s intent is to subvert this expectation, opening the image for contemplation of a fuller sense of the idea of time."
