"Elements I" (2016), Monoprint, 28 5/8 x 28 5/8 inches
Dan Walsh in The Paris Review Daily

Dan Walsh's newest edition, Axis and suite of monoprints, Elements were featured on The Paris Review's blog The Daily. In the post, Dan Piepenbring writes, "Dan Walsh’s exhibition 'Prints and Multiples' is at Pace Prints, in New York, through October 22. 'I always regarded the space in a painting as the soul of a painting,' he told the Daily in 2011. 'I’m working to find a space I can interact with on a day-to-day basis, something neutral and malleable: one of the goals of minimalism was to experience qualities of materials, forms, colors and remove psychological space.'"

Sol LeWitt, Wall Drawing #368. First Drawn by: Jo Watanabe and others.
A Celebration of LeWitt at Paula Cooper
Thursday, September 8, 2016 - Saturday, October 22, 2016

On view at Paula Cooper Gallery is a sweeping celebration of Sol LeWitt’s prolific career in all public locations of the gallery. The exhibitions include monumental wall drawings in India ink and Styrofoam; enumerative, encyclopedic studies in photography; tectonic open structures and oblique complex forms; as well as prints and works on paper.

At 534 West 21st Street is the outstanding Wall Drawing #368 (1982), first drawing by former Pace Editions printer Jo Watanabe. Diverging from his early austere minimalist aesthetic, the vigorous broad stripes of the work create a seductive, vibrating expanse. Installed in the front gallery space are two Styrofoam wall drawings from 1993, constructed from irregular polystyrene fragments. The works’ asperous edges reverberate in juxtaposition to the sharp angles and sleek planes of LeWitt’s Complex Form #65 (1989), also on view.

Leonardo Drew at Sikkema Jenkins
Thursday, September 8, 2016 - Saturday, October 8, 2016

New work by artist and Pace Prints collaborator Leonardo Drew will be on view at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. through October 8, 2016. The exhibition marks Drew’s fifth solo show at the gallery.

Leonardo Drew is known for his abstract sculptural installations, which incorporate materials such as paper, rope, wood, paint chips, tree branches and roots, and sheet metal. In Drew’s hands, these raw materials are exhaustingly transformed to resemble debris. While artistically rooted in art movements of the 1950s and 60s including abstract expressionism, minimalism, and Arte Povera, Drew - influenced by non-Western philosophical traditions - views his work as a reflection of the cyclical nature of time, the continual processes of transformation, and the connectivity of all things. This is perhaps most evident in the artist’s practice of incorporating parts of earlier works into newer pieces, including several of the works on view in the current exhibition.

Drew’s current work also displays a concrete engagement with language, particularly in works like Number 181, 2016, which includes white stripes reminiscent of lines of text or musical notation. Viewed in detail, the works also recalls ancient writing forms – symbols cut into stone such as hieroglyphics and cuneiform – or possibly letterpress blocks that are worn, reshaped, and reused.

Yasu Shibata: Japanese Woodcuts at Foundry Vineyards
Sunday, June 26, 2016 - Sunday, July 31, 2016

Walla Walla, WA – Foundry Vineyards is honored to announce its new art exhibition featuring Master Printer Yasu Shibata and Master Calligrapher Yoshiyasu Fujii. The opening reception will be held Sunday, June 26th, 2016 from 5 p.m. – 7p.m. Master Printer Yasu Shibata received his BFA from Kyoto Sika University before moving to the United States in 1991. In the U.S., he began his printing career at Tyler Graphics working for artists such as Frank Stella, David Salle and Helen Frakenthaler.

Currently, Shibata works at the print publisher Pace Editions in New York where he prints exclusively using Mokuhanga techniques to create editions for artists such as Chuck Close and James Siena. Shibata’s own artwork utilizes both reduction style techniques and Japanese woodcut methods to create multiple layers of pigment that results in vibrant colors exhibited through variations of simple shapes.

Master Calligrapher Yoshiyasu Fujii’s lifelong passion for calligraphy began at the age of five and continued onto his
college career where he attended Daito Bunka University to study under Master Calligrapher Shumpo Akashi. From there, he continued to receive many awards, including the 1990 and 1992 top award at the Mainichi Calligraphy Competition, one of Japan’s oldest and most prestigious calligraphy competitions. Fujii was also awarded the only U.S. license for calligraphy instruction by the Japanese Ministry of Education. He has used his talents to promote the unique art form of calligraphy in the U.S., through schools and programs held in Seattle, Portland, California and on the Japanese island of Kyushu.

This exhibition is funded by the Anderson Foundation for the Arts and coordinated through the Whitman Mokuhanga Center. The Whitman Mokuhanga Center was founded in 2015 by Keiko Hara and Akira R. Takemoto as a way to promote and explore the Mokuhanga printing method and Japanese culture through workshops, demonstrations, and community events.
