Dwellers - Solo Exhibition, New York

Opening Reception: October 18, 6-8pm

On view: 10/18 - 11/18

E.TAY Gallery is pleased to present Dwellers, a solo exhibition of paintings by Lorella Paleni. Paleni’s work investigates the relationships between humans and animals. Her paintings are tangled scenes of encounters in the wild that invite viewers to grapple with their own ecological consciousness.  

 Through a process of overlapping, erasing, adding and scraping, dynamic landscapes emerge on Paleni’s canvases. Colors and compositions are arranged in a conflicting manner that evokes both mysticism and sinister intent. While the natural environment dominates the pictorial landscape, ambiguous human characters invade the settings to disrupt the harmony.

 In Dwellers, gloved human hands, ghostly industrious figures, monkeys, branches, and other beings inhabit the paintings. The foreground and background intersect with the creatures in an inextricable mesh illustrating that, despite the estrangement between human and nonhuman worlds, they are invariably part of an intricate whole.

 Paleni’s paintings are an attempt to question the power structure that lies at the root of our reasoning to question human exceptionalism and imagine new possibilities of existence in the world. The work seems to acknowledge that society is hierarchical, and that the few who rise to the top often do so at the expense of the voiceless.

Magic + Love x Art

Magic + Love x Art Curated by Larissa Kikol

Opening reception: Friday, February 17th at 6 PM - 9 PM

We are pleased to present the works of 10 artists in this group exhibition curated by Larissa Kikol.

ABETZ & DRESCHER
DR. JOHANNES ALBES
STEFANO BOSIS
FREDERIKE VON CRANACH
GIUSEPPE GONELLA
TIMO KLÖPPEL

LORELLA PALENI

The square root of “magic” plus “love” multiplied by “art squared” is an amusing equation that allows one to contemplate artworks that conjure the unknown. Traditionally magic was, in essence, a transformation — taking something less valuable and making it remarkable. The works in this group exhibition are infused with a cathartic spirit and vision of the universe that is expansive, always in motion and open to mystery. The message embedded in the tongue-in-cheek formula, that is the exhibition’s title, suggests that the artist’s role is to find inspiration in the unusual and to create enigmatic and thought provoking works. Artists are everyday shamans, their strategy and artistic process is to construct riddles out of the world.

Imperfect Containers - Exhibition view

Imperfect Conteiners

Come through on Wednesday 12/9 from 6-8pm for the opening of Imperfect Containers featuring Gina Malek, Nicole Maloof, Leah Moskowitz, and Lorella Paleni. The show will be up until Jan 10.

COMMEDIA: NEW PRINTS 2015/AUTUMN

Curated by Tomas Vu Daniel

International Print Center New York presents Commedia: New Prints 2015/Autumn from November 19 – January 16, 2016 in its gallery at 508 West 26th St, 5th Floor. Commedia was selected by Tomas Vu, artist and Artistic Director of the Leroy Neiman Center for Print Studies (NY). The exhibition consists of sixty-eight prints by sixty artists selected from over 2,000 submissions. On view during IPCNY’s 15th Anniversary year, Commedia is the fifty-second presentation of IPCNY’s New Prints Program, a series of juried exhibitions organized three times each year featuring prints made within the past twelve months. An illustrated brochure with a curatorial essay by Mr. Vu accompanies the exhibition.

In his words: “The title of the show, Commedia, is the original title of Dante’s Divine Comedy….Dante’s embrace and elevation of humble materials, and the specificity and personality they created, are reflected in the works I have selected….As the show has come together, it has been wonderful to see the works start to speak to each other….I see conversations starting in one place and finishing in another, I see the categories blur and then come back into focus, and I am taken to the same place Dante transported me to: wandering between states, striving for ascension.”

Artists are:  Todd Anderson, Kathy Aoki, Evan Bellantone, Marcin Bialas, Allison Bianco, Mary Lynn Blasutta, Sebastiaan Bremer, Noah Breuer, Patrick Casey, Nathan Catlin, Phillip Chen, Matthew Colaizzo, Nick Conbere, Aurélien Couput, David Curcio, Kara Dunne, Scott Espeseth, Megan Foster, Carl Fudge, Rebecca Gilbert, Kevin Haas, Ellen Heck, Amira Hegazy, John Holmgren, Mary Hood, Cary Hulbert, Eeva Huotari, Fleming Jeffries, Crystal Johnson, Leekyung Kang, Kamil Kocurek, Andrew Kosten, Andrew Kozlowski, Sara Langworthy, Yujin Lee, Michael Loderstedt, Kate MacNeil, Barbara Madsen, Renee Magnanti, Nicole Maloof, Jessica Meuninck-Ganger, Barbara Milman, Anne Muntges, Lorella Paleni, Kurt Pammer, Margherita Paoletti, Jill Parisi, Alyssa Piro, Kasey Ramirez, Mark Rice, Jenny Robinson, Jungyeon Roh, Michelle Rozic, David Sandlin, Carrie Scanga, William Skerritt, Evan Summer, Rob Swainston, Clare Szydlowski, and Sergey Zlotnikov.
