138 Eldridge Street, Suite 2F |  INFO@STATIONINDEPENDENT.COM | 917.698.2012
Thurs-Sun: Noon-6PM and by appointment.

The six artists presented in SPACES do not adhere solely to the restrictions of contemporary painting set by rigid representational and non-representational demands. Instead, they tend to shift between figure, nature, and abstraction at will. They each move between - or rather their work exists- in that space between representation and abstraction.

At times these artists simultaneously paint abstractly or representationally depending on their interests. By beginning a work in one style and ending it in another each painter finds an elusive balance with their work. Their strength is in choosing to cast off any notion of a particular manner or current trend. They observe the language of painting on their own terms. Pioneering new ground, mixing genres, and orchestrating a unique approach which doesn’t leave them beholden to anyone.  

By shifting their approach and style at will these six artists share a historical thread with others who came before them. Namely, Elaine de Kooning, Sonia Gechtoff, Buffie Johnson, Deborah Remington, Jeanne Reynal, and Susan Rothenberg, each of whom charted these in-between spaces and pushed boundaries to find their own success.

It's within this space that Liz Ainslie, Theresa Daddezio, Alison Fox, Ilse Sørensen Murdock, Kristina Lee, and Erika Ranee unapologetically question in their own way where painting comes from, who it belongs to, and where it is headed. Each attributing to a dialogue that looks to move the conversation forward through their own space and in their own time.  

Faculty at School of the Alternative, Black Mountain, North Carolina

I had an amazing time teaching for two weeks at School of the Alternative in May, 2017. My class took place in iconic Eureka Hall where Black Mountain College originally held some of their classes. I taught Anti-Product Drawing and Painting where we focused on the act of making rather than worrying about the end result. School of the Alternative is a socially integrated experience, with intimate classes, communal living, and emphasis on shared labor.

Neesh @BOS 2016

October 1 & 2, 2016, 11:00 am-7:00 pm

Hosted by Neesh Interactive

GROUP EXHIBITION
Hosted by Liz Ainslie & Maanik Singh Chauhan

Neesh Interactive proudly presents a group exhibition of paintings during Bushwick Open Studios 2016 featuring artists whose studios are outside of the neighborhood or city. The artwork on display adds breadth and context to the hosting artists, Liz Ainslie and Maanik Singh Chauhan who will have their studios open in their distinct Brooklyn live/work loft.

Featuring Artists:
Maureen Cavanaugh
Gianna Commito
Andy Cross
Jay Davis
Stacy Fisher
Jasmine Justice
Sarah Shirley
Meghan Petras
Mitchell Wright
Liz Ainslie
Maanik Singh Chahaun

Many of the artists shown here have helped shape the scene over the past two decades. We are excited to cycle in a few voices who may not have been heard in awhile, may not have been shown together before, or whose work has evolved in a different place under a different dialect. Artists are influenced by each other, even if only seen online or remembered from a show long ago. Neesh offers a chance to view this artwork in person and learn from the tactile qualities of the paint itself, distinct approaches to space, content and abstraction. Curated by Fran Holstrom, founder of Neesh Interactive www.neesh.io  Enjoy!

On view:  11am – 7pm, Saturday & Sunday
Brunch:   10am – noon, Sunday (children welcome)

Throughout the varied methodology and subject matter of these paintings, color is dominant in the depiction of space and form. Color activity drives the painting’s illusion.
