Nature Inc. curated by Lynn Stein
"Nature Inc.", curated by Lynn Stein features the work of artists that incorporate (Inc) their profound affinity for nature with their inexplicable drive to create art.

The exhibition reimagines & recreates nature as well as repurposing her at her most beautiful.
Selected participating artists: Pat Hickman, Catherine Latson, and Loren Eiferman's work uses found natural materials such as what remains of trees over decades that have fallen into rivers, cleaned simple branches to create linear sculptural vessels and couture gowns blazing in the saturated colors of dried marigolds or the delicate blush of urchin shells. Norm Magnusson, a 2015 NYFA fellow literally plays with and decorates nature. Carla Goldberg and Tatana Kellner reimagines the element of water while making environmental statements. The video When Winter Comes by Deborah Davidovits follows the life cycle from a bees perspective. Through wall-mounted speakers, computer-manipulated versions of the song of the Galapagos mockingbird and Darwin's finches are just one component of the multilayered installation Voyage Out by John Morton and Jackie Shatz.

Nature may be perfect, but not too perfect to intimidate these artists. – L Stein

The artists featured are from the Lower Hudson Valley.
Deborah Davidovits, Loren Eiferman, Marina Fridman, Carla Goldberg, Joan Harmon, Pat Hickman, Bill Hochhausen, Tatana Kellner, Catherine Latson, Norm Magnusson, Laura Moriarty, Jackie Shatz / John Morton.

Catherine Latson
Dresses

Latson works with organic materials and takes inspiration from nature's principle of design.

"Nature rules and every season tweaks the game plan with a different menu of textures, palettes and patterns. Through out the process I allow the intrinsic properties of my medium to take the creative lead" – Catherine Latson

Norm Magnusson Decorating Nature/large digital prints

"A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down."

"I strive to create art that is both beautiful and meaningful, art that is aesthetically and intellectually accessible and deals with important issues. This body of work, my "decorating nature" series, is on a theme that has informed a great deal of my art over the last couple of decades — mankind's complicated and vast relationship with nature."

http://decoratingnature.blogspot.com/

   

Carla Goldberg
Ice Goddess/Installation

For the past eight years, Carla has worked primarily with resins and water concepts in one form or another. She combines these non-traditional, industrial materials with traditional art mediums where her inventiveness pushes her materials constantly into new forms. The resulting work is at once intricate and bold yet ethereal.

   

Marina Fridman

Fridman creates freeform sculptures using palster gauze molding paste and sodium tetraboarte crystals on canvas to create glittering mineral forms.

Joan Harmon
Spinal Column (ceramic and wood) and Reliquary Series (hydrostone, moss, coal, horsehair)

The freestanding tree-like form of Spinal Column is a study of the delicate curves keeping the balance that allows our human bodies to stand erect in space.
www.joanharmon.com

   

Pat Hickman
"The River That Flows Both Ways", with credit to the Native American name for the Hudson, mug-he-kun-ne-tuk.

Hickman is working with what is found beneath the surface. When trees fall into the water, over decades they decay, eventually disappearing into the river bottom. What resists this disintegration are the strange shapes formed where the branch joined the trunk, a cross-grained, pitch hardened core, like a tooth in a human head. Hickman is exploring visual metaphors with these river teeth, the last part of the body to let go.

Bill Hochhausen
The Antamony Lesson

"The Antamony Lesson" is a large expressive landscape painting canvas with sculptural elements . The embedded video subtlely leads the viewer through the journey of experiencing the painting. "The brilliant intensity of landscape color, form and light, indeed its sheer scope challenge a painter working directly in nature. We attempt to celebrate its complex beauty with our perception, skill and wit even while we continue to be adversaries of nature", says Hochhausen.

   

Tatana Kellner
Poisoned Well 2013, silkscreen, motor, tank, water variable.

Poisoned Well consists of a transparent tank filled with water. The names of the 70 most toxic chemicals used in hydro fracking, those that have 10 or more negative health effects, are silkscreen printed onto a roll of water soluble paper. The roll is suspended over the transparent tank. A slowly rotating motor lowers the paper into the water tank. Upon touching the water, the paper dissolves and the text, which does not dissolve, cascades to the bottom.

http://tatanakellner.com

   

Loren Eiferman
Life Interrupted (for Spalding) 2004
Vessel Sculptures/Branches

Eiferman starts out each day with a walk in the woods to gather sticks that have fallen to the ground. She looks for shapes within each branch; she cuts and joins the wood together using dowels and glue to create the form. The process is repeated until the newly constructed piece of wood looks like it was "born" in nature. Frequently each piece has over a hundred small pieces of wood jointed together.

Deborah Davidovits 
Video / When Winter Comes

When Winter Comes is named after a poem written by the artist's son when he was five years old. The video connects the yearly cycle of the honeybee's life to our own through the material language of our world. Twenty shadow puppets made of paper and wire and an accompanying soundtrack create a loose narrative from the bees' perspective.

Laura Moriarty
Encaustic Installation / Settlement

Installations, prints, and pedestal-based pieces that are an elaboration of diagrams found in earth science text books. The artist studies the way events and phenomena occur in the geological time scale, and then creates micro/macro records in paint of what she imagines happens below a terrain's surface.

Jackie Shatz / John Morton

In honor of the two-hundredth anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, and of the hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary of the first presentation to scientists of his theory of evolution, the composer John Morton and the artist Jacqueline Shatz built a miniature interactive musical version of Darwin's ship the Beagle, which plays, through wall-mounted speakers, computer-manipulated versions of the song of the Galapagos mockingbird and Darwin's finches; recitations of Darwin's packing lists and field notes; and nautical sounds such as that of an anchor being hoisted out of the water. Originally installed at Wave Hill, Bronx, NY– New Yorker magazine 11/9 "Above and Beyond"

   

Jackie Shatz
Waterfall

Waterfall is fired clay and paint - paint used in layers and to wash away paint giving line and drip effect. The structure is hollow and built in a hand building method. Based on a photograph of Niagara Falls that I saw in the New Yorker. A concrete abstraction of a moving nature form - water can appear solid and volumetric in mass.

Codes: Jen P Harris
is a puzzle - like installation that holds philosophical and spiritual questions while creating poetry from pieces of a broken world. Her intricately layered ink paintings transform ancient motifs, contemporary symbols and geometric forms into vivid scenes of complexity and profusion. Harris has created a visual alphabet in pursuit of the future while understanding our past.


I am most drawn to Jen Harris's work because I understand it to be elucidating this modern­day conundrum. It reminds me of what Chekov said to be the task of the artist, not to solve anything, but to offer "a correct presentation of the problem." It is only through the most honest articulation of existence that the greater mystery has its own chance of being revealed.
- Jessica Lott (Times Club, exhibition essay, 2015)

 One of the greatest strengths of Harris's work is its acceptance of the unknown — of mystery. This is a rare trait in itself and one especially so in a technological age where the demand for rapid dissemination of information often leaves us stuck in a feedback loop of misinformation. In Harris' capable hands, symbols like the esoteric Ouroboros don't seem anachronistic at all. In fact, they couldn't seem more relevant.
- Lizzy Schule (Little Village, 2015)

   
 


   
Harris was born in Blacksburg, Virginia in 1977. She received a BA (1999) in Studio Art from Yale University and an MFA (2008) from Queens College of the City University of New York. She is the recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Painting Fellowship (2012), Ora Schneider Residency Grant (2012), Puffin Foundation Grant (2011), and Astraea Visual Arts Fund Grant (2011). Her work was selected to be included in the Pierogi Flat Files (Brooklyn, NY), The Drawing Center Viewing Program (NYC), and The Boston Drawing Project. She currently lives in Iowa City, IA.

Rebecca Mushtare
http://cyberthread.net/projects/storyquilt/

Rebecca [White] Mushtare's creative work is often inspired by observation and guided by curiosity and research. Her work is best classified as experience design that spans a variety of media and often combines design, fibers techniques and coding.

Participants are invited to sit at the StoryQuilter (the sewing machine) and tell it a story. Once the participant finishes her story, the StoryQuilter will generate a personalized quilt (projection on a quilted screen) based on the participant's story. The more the participant "gives" the StoryQuilter vocally, the more the StoryQuilter will put into the participant's quilt.

Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt: Mysterium Tremendum
October 20 - December 15, 2013

Artist Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt, born 1948 in Linden NJ was a pioneer of the maximalist aesthetic of the late 1960's that explored class struggle, gay sexuality and religion. As an icon of gay culture and a participant of the Stonewall Riots, 1969, Schmidt created a radically decorative practice. Using foil, staplers, cellophane and other humble materials, he transformed them into glittering altars, chalices, and objects of pure opulence that shimmer like those in churches.

Gallery TWO
ALMOST EVERYTHING: Elise Engler
October 20 - December 15, 2013

Elise Engler, in the tradition of the naturalist/artist/scientists, like John James Audubon and others, actively makes long playful "drawing lists" of her experiences, like an inventory of souvenirs or visual journals. She is a world traveler, an artist in search of adventure while making a difference in the world by drawing.

"The sum of its parts is greater than the whole. Like an anthropologist/archaeologist (and often fly on the wall) I approach a situation, document its parts, by observing, listening and researching. The result is work that goes beyond the elements themselves to give the viewer a full sense of an experience." Elise Engler
