Antoine Wagner @ La Patinoire Royale / Galerie Valérie Bach


Antoine Wagner
April 27 to July 20, 2018

opening April 26 from 5 to 8 pm.

“Antoine Wagner captures the warmth and melancholy of years passing as well as nature’s timeless cycle. The contemplative mystery of these works recalls the sublime adventure of painters like Friedrich and Turner whilst driving forward into a visceral abstraction akin to Turrell. In every image there is a seductive sense of the half open curtain into our memories or dreams. A surface to be broken through. And on the other side of this silence emerges a perfect music so finely crafted and yet somehow capable of carrying the untouched purity of nature’s breaking waves, soft rain and trickling streams.”

MICHAEL WOLF @ Flowers Gallery


MICHAEL WOLF: BOTTROP-EBEL 76
11 May – 30 June 2018

“Bottrop-Ebel 76 is a series of photographs taken by Wolf in a small coal mining village in the Ruhr District, Germany in 1976, while he was still a student at the Folkswangschule für Gestaltung. Wolf sought to capture the collective identity of the community, documenting their way of life in a changing industrial region, where the future was looking uncertain and unemployment was on the rise. He returned often to the district during a year of intensive research, even living there for a time, in order to get closer to his subject matter.”

exhibition opening in the presence of the artist Thursday May 3rd from 6 to 8pm

“At times, the reflection presented in a photograph seems to be far away, untouchable. Understanding a photograph is simultaneously straightforward and difficult because while a photograph is, strictly speaking, a piece of documentation, it is also a meaningful observation that has been torn from the world. An image of a blade of grass on snow is strictly what is looks like but, at the same time, it is also a black gash across a white background. Tuning in to the atmosphere dictated by the image is essential when viewing a photograph. Like a window, mirror or a screen, the photograph is a prisoner of its frames. Nevertheless, the photograph dictates what we see within its frames.”

SARAH ANNE JOHNSON @ Julie Saul Gallery


SARAH ANNE JOHNSON: ROSY-FINGERED DAWN
May 5 – June 23, 2018

Opening reception for the artist, Saturday, May 5, 5-7 pm

“Like the goddess of daybreak in Homer’s Odyssey, Sarah Anne Johnson’s new landscapes recur with beauty and wonder, in a multitude of guises. In her eighth solo show at this gallery, she is taking a more general approach, not limiting herself to a specific place or distinct history. She’s focusing on photographic tropes- landscape scenes from a variety of places that depict sublime natural beauty. But as always, the artist is concerned with the loop between photographic object and “reality.” She poses serious questions, and
answers with seductive playfulness. Once again she is trying to bridge that space through the psychology of place, and the dividing line between what is real and what is felt- a quality that remains a balancing act in all of her projects.”
