Nicole Eisenman at Leo Koenig
May 24, 2012 - June 30, 2012
Leo Koenig presents an exhibition of new work by Nicole Eisenman, the artist’s fourth solo presentation at Leo Koenig Inc. and the first devoted entirely to her printmaking practice. The exhibition is comprised of etchings, monotypes, woodcuts, and unique works on paper, created in collaboration with New York-based printers Harlan & Weaver, Jungle Press, 10 Grand Press, and the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY.
Often cited as one of the seminal painters of her generation, Nicole Eisenman’s diverse practice embraces popular culture and encompasses many types of media and subject matter. Utilizing a wide and erudite variety of techniques culled from the history of printmaking, Eisenman approaches each of her subjects with a unique touch that adds to the sense that each of her figures, while inhabiting a common physical locale, exists in an isolated psychological space. The figures depicted often convey a sense of unsettled, contemplative thought and disenchantment with the status quo. From allegorical tableaux to singular portraits, Eisenman continues her sustained fascination with human interaction and isolation. These highly personal subjects speak explicitly to our current economic and political environment; however, the works ultimately go beyond these themes to explore a broader interest in the human condition. With an easygoing virtuosity accentuated by sharp wit and deadpan humor, Eisenman carves out a world in which meaning is elusive if not painfully unavailable.
Born in 1965 in Verdun, France, Nicole Eisenman earned her BFA in 1987 from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been exhibited widely, both in the United States and internationally. Recent one-artist exhibitions have been held at The Tang Museum at Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY (2009–10); Kunsthalle Zurich (2007); and Le Plateau, Paris (2007). In addition, her work has been included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial and Prospect.2 New Orleans (2011), as well as recent group exhibitions at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2011–12); The Jewish Museum, New York (2010); CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art, Annandale, (2010); and The Museum of Modern Art, New York (2009).
Jacqueline Humphries at Greene Naftali
March 29, 2012 - April 28, 2012
Greene Naftali is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Jacqueline Humphries, the New York artists seventh show at the gallery. In the eleven large-scale paintings on view, Humphries addresses the frame as her initial point of departure in a fait accompli gesture that opens up the pictorial space as an active site. Painterly abstraction and conceptual engagement are enacted with a sense of boundlessness in direct reckoning with the physical surface.
Utilizing the transformative properties of her signature metallic silver paint, Humphries reflective canvases suggest a cinematic space that engages with light and movement in real-time. The metered process through which the paintings reveal themselves, unfixed in a constant shift of light and shadow, creates a distanced tension recalling iconic tropes of Film Noir. Humphries silver screens spotlight the viewer within a theatrical field that rewards physical movement, a foil to our culture of increasingly passive visual reception of images as they rapidly flash by on glowing monitors.
Vibrant graphic and gestural marks, at times manifest in the act of erasure, coalesce within Humphries metallic planes alongside fugitive drips and decisive dashes. An anti-formalist undoing of the painterly process through aggressive acts of scraping and stripping away from the painted surface is complicated further by the tension between construction and excavation, index and incident. A convergence of pictorial and real world space becomes the subject of these works as the viewer navigates the interstice, operating within a subjective, labyrinthine realm.
Jacqueline Humphries recent solo exhibitions include Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London (2010, 2007); Greene Naftali, New York (2009); and Prospect.1 New Orleans, LA (2008). Her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Whitney Museum of American Art; Albright-Knox Art Gallery; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Smithsonian Institution, D.C.
