Roberto Matta: On the Edge of a Dream
February 15, 2018
Roberto Matta is considered the last great Surrealist painter and the bridge between 20th Century Masters and the Abstract Expressionist Movement. On Thursday, February 15th, Lisa Burgess opened Matta: On the Edge of a Dream, a genuinely extraordinary retrospective featuring original works, sculpture, and graphics from one of the most important artists of our time. With over 60 works, it is the most significant Matta exhibition held in a museum or gallery since Chile’s Centennial exhibition in 2011 and acts as a prelude to the Hermitage Museum’s one-man show opening later this year. In fact, the Hermitage requested the loan of 9 paintings in her curated exhibition.
Marcus Jansen: Merchants of Babylon
July 25, 2019
Merchants of Babylon explores a new collection of work from Marcus Jansen, the so-called “cartographer of conflict”. His socially critical paintings weave tales of a world in turmoil and isolation, threat, war, surveillance, and greed in competition with innocence, hope, and humanity. Jansen’s artistic roots took ground in New York’s graffiti scene, but years in Germany infused his work with the influence of Expressionists, especially through his brushstroke and use of color. Today, Jansen is recognized as one of the most important American painters of his generation, with work in numerous museums, public and private collections.
