‘Afrum, Pale Pink’ (1967)
James Turrell Revisits His Early Experiments With Light

James Turrell was featured in the Wall Street Journal for his exhibition of landmark light projections, currently on view in 67 68 69 at two Pace Gallery locations through June 18, 2016. The artist discusses his early experimentation with optics and perceptual psychology, which were seminal to the creation of subsequent works including Roden Crater in the Painted Hills region of the San Francisco volcanic field, Aten Reign at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and over 80 Skyspaces internationally.

"'Light is different than we normally see it,' Mr. Turrell said of ways the eye and mind can be tricked or misled. 'There are glimpses, when you see light and it has its own presence.' But more often, we tend to take light for granted or look through it rather than at it..."

An exhibition of prints by James Turrrell will be on view concurrently at both Pace Prints locations through June 11, 2016.

Inka Essenhigh at the Frist Center

Friday, May 27, 2016 - Sunday, October 9, 2016

The Frist Center in Nashville, Tennessee will host an exhibition of paintings and monotypes by Inka Essenhigh, created over the past decade. Between Worlds will exhibit the artist's ethereal figures and dreamlike environments in which boundaries are melted: interior becomes exterior; solid becomes fluid; the sensual overlaps with the absurd; plant becomes human; and clarity and mystery coexist.

Essenhigh's cast of characters and their settings are meant to present the possibility of existence outside of body and mind, yet the dream-like images have links to reality, reflecting time spent between lower Manhattan and rural Maine. While the images have connections with mysticism and folklore, they also serve as a reminder of the beauty of the natural world.

Between Worlds will be on view at the Gordon Contemporary Artists Project Gallery May 27–October 9, 2016.

Shahzia Sikander in Newsweek Middle East
Shahzia Sikander in Newsweek Middle East

Shahzia Sikander was featured in the April 20th issue of Newsweek Middle East in an article titled, "A Colonial Canvas: The Art of Shahzia Sikander."

The piece discusses Sikander's first major solo exhibition in Hong Kong, Apparatus of Power at The Asia Society Hong Kong, which includes the artist's edition of four etchings Portrait of the Artist, made in collaboration with Pace Prints. The artist reflects on Asia’s financial capital as the backdrop for this latest show saying, “Hong Kong encapsulates an erupting and evolving notion of identity and autonomy through the complex push and pull between its English history and relationship with mainland China," asking the question, “What is independence and authority exactly?”

An excerpt from the article reads:

Sikander creates worlds of evocative and disorienting images that remain open to reflection and interpretation. “The work validates what is essential to me. The ability to imagine the future. The ability to leap, to not conform, but to channel possibilities,” she tells Newsweek Middle East. In pushing the contours of what it means to be both a contemporary and a Muslim artist, Sikander also wants to question who tells a story and why they are granted that narrative power. In constantly pushing her own frame of references beyond the Islamic miniature, Hong Kong becomes a new participant in her creative journey.

Apparatus of Power will be on view through July 9, 2016.

Loyal Gallery is pleased to announce Daniel Heidkamp’s solo exhibition Pump the Peninsula:

In continuation of the project started last year, and exhibited with Pace Prints, this group of paintings uses imagery derived from observational painting on Cape Ann in Massachusetts. Like the earlier project, these paintings feature imagery from two recent summer stays in the art historically important city of Gloucester, while the current group also includes imagery from my recent winter outing in the adjacent town of Rockport, MA.

The main industries in Rockport are lobster fishing, granite rock quarrying, and of course art tourism. In late December I stayed in an oceanside house overlooking an active lobster boat marina, and flanked by a rock quarry loading area. These scenes served as the jumping-off point for the painting ‘Warp the Wharf’.

In this series I attempt to pump up the elements of naturalism that have appeared throughout my work—a sense of light, temperature, the texture of stone, deep open space, splashing water, foliage, and the ground. Working on large canvases I am able to maneuver the internal scale, where stone steps become larger than life, waves crash below the viewers' feet, and miles of horizon stretch across the wide picture plane. In places the naturalism gives way to surrealism and psychedelia. DayGlo orange lobster buoys ooze and balloon into strange bulbous shapes, a rainbow colored bounce castle is lodged against an overstuffed beach house, families of trees partly conceal various wildlife: a dog, birds, a snake, a lobster, a whale? And a canoe-shaped native tobacco pipe is hidden in the rocks.

The idea of ‘inflation’ is important here: buoys, the bounce house, monster truck tires, inflatable houses? inflatable rocks? I want everything to look like it could burst, float away, or crash. With this project I’ve used some of the elements of the tradition of maritime seascape painting that this picturesque region is known for, but instead I popped the port, warped the wharf, pumped the peninsula, and painted.
