Emilio Perez and Leonardo Drew at Jacob Lewis Gallery
Friday, April 7, 2017 - Saturday, May 6, 2017

Work by Pace Prints collaborators Emilio Perez and Leonardo Drew is currently on view in a two-person exhibition at Jacob Lewis Gallery, 521 West 26th Street, 4th Floor. The show will be on view through May 6, 2017.

Evoking the natural environment, the cosmos and bodily systems, Emilio Perez’s paintings on panel and Leonardo Drew’s sculptural assemblages are created intuitively through labor-intensive processes in the artists’ distinct, idiosyncratic visual languages.

Emilio Perez’s newest large-scale diptych and panel paintings undulate with abstract forms in jewel-like colors. Perez’s process-driven approach begins with layers of bold, painterly gestures applied to a sprayed on ground. The artist responds to the surface intuitively, carving away negative space and defining varying fields of color with graphic, hard-edged line. Taking cues from American action painters, pulp graphic arts and the Italian Baroque, Perez’s rhythmic labyrinth of forms fuse painterly concerns to create, in his words, “a journey that, ultimately, the viewer is invited to define.”

Leonardo Drew’s abstract sculptures are crafted additively using seemingly found natural materials. Working from a vast collection of materials amassed over his prolific career, Drew tightly layers painted woodchips, branches and scraps into discreet wall-mounted works in relief. The pieces speak to the interconnectedness of all things as they grapple energetically with the collateral of urban decay and the cyclical nature of human existence—birth, ruin and re-growth.

Saturday, March 25, 2017 - Sunday, October 29, 2017

The de Young Museum in San Francisco will host a solo exhibition of work by artist and Pace Prints collaborator Leonardo Drew. His expansive installation Number 197 spans three walls in the museum’s atrium, comprising a multitude of sculptural elements created and arranged in response to the unique context of the de Young’s landmark architecture.

Leonardo Drew has employed the grid, while also working to subvert it as a principle, to organize his assemblages and installations since the early 1990s. Using off-the-shelf-materials and the occasional found object, Drew produces pieces whose metaphorical power is located within his labor-intensive manipulation of materials and the spatial dynamics of his compositions.

There will be an artist talk titled "On and Beyond Number 197" on May 18, 2017, 7–8pm.

Hodgkin's "Tears, Idle Tears" (2001), Hand-painted lift-ground etching with aquatint and carborundum, 11 1/2 x 14 3/8 ", Ed. 60
Beloved painter Howard Hodgkin dies at 84
Thursday, March 9, 2017

From The New York Times:
Howard Hodgkin, a British artist whose lush, semiabstract paintings, aquiver with implicit drama, established him as one of the most admired artists of the postwar period, died on Thursday in London. He was 84.
The Tate Galleries announced his death but did not specify a cause.
Mr. Hodgkin was a relative latecomer to fame. A slow, methodical worker who could spend years building up a painting’s surface, he did not have a solo show until he was 30, and for years thereafter toiled against the grain, his work at odds with prevailing fashion.
[...]
Mr. Hodgkin won the Turner Prize a year later, and as major gallery and museum exhibitions in Britain and the United States followed, one after the other, his distinctive blend of bravura brushwork, emotional depth and sense of mystery began to hold sway. He came to be seen as a highly original interpreter of the dramas that unfold in intimate, interior space, an heir to Bonnard and Vuillard.
“On the subject of sitting rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and balconies neither Hodgkin’s eye nor his hand has ever failed him,” the critic John Russell wrote in The New York Times Magazine in 1990. “He is all-seeing on the subject of hotels, restaurants, private collections, public parks, costume jewelry, human exchanges of all kinds and day-to-day weather reporting. Manners and mores, ups and downs, ins and outs — all have their place in his paintings.
“He can make a wet afternoon in summer feel like the most blissful thing that ever happened,” he continued, “and when he summons up the quintessence of a restaurant (in London, by the way, not in Paris) he makes us want to stand up and shout for the menu.”
