Marley Freeman is a New York-based artist who combines the disciplines of abstract and representational painting. Her unique facture is characterized by the hand-mixed gesso, acrylic, and oil paints she uses to create meticulous, psychologically-charged color fields. Through this technical process, she studies the ways in which paint “wants to perform.” “Pigments have their own ways of acting,” Freeman says, “and I became obsessed with learning their traits.” Freeman’s distinct vocabulary of forms is made up of brushy strokes, color washes, and shapes that freely transform across the picture plane. The influence of textile design is evident in her close attention to the textural subtleties of her paints, and her reverence for their surface effects—their impressions in the warp and weft of the canvas.
AIR talk with Nolan Hendrickson on Saturday, June 12th from 3-4pm at the 58 Greenwoods Rd W building in downtown Norfolk.
A review of Nolan’s work from the New Yorker:
A young painter tackles a challenge that’s bedevilled painters since classical Greece: how to portray bodies in motion. Not that any of these colorful, superflat figures would be caught dead throwing a discuss—doing Jazzercise is more like it. Hendrickson’s loopy, imaginative style betrays an eclectic range of influences—from James Ensor to “South Park” to Dana Schutz. Athletes wearing masks and striped leotards (or nothing at all) crowd the canvases, lunging, twisting, grasping at rings, and, in one absurd instance, styling waves with a hairbrush. A segmented purple line runs through each composition, as if signifying the broken ribbon at the end of a race (in the color of L.G.B.T. pride). The energy here is so infectious that one may be forgiven for wanting to cheer.
OPEN FROM 5:00 – 6:45PM (prior to the screening and artist talk with Dani Restack)
FILM SCREENING AND TALK WITH THE ARTIST on MAY 1st 7PM @ Tom and Billy’s Red Barn on Westside Rd and Windrow Rd
Dani (Leventhal) ReStack’s films make palpable the emotional life of disparate animate and inanimate worlds. Using both scripted and found source material, ReStack creates complex layers of meaning through montage, rendering micro-narratives of mortality and desire. The trilogy is a collaboration with Dani’s partner Sheilah Restack.
