A year ago, Anagnorisis Fine Arts was accepted into the prestigious Program for Emerging Curators that has been run by New York’s ISE Cultural Foundation since 1984. Finally, Another Roadside Attraction has been realized and is fully installed in ISE’s gallery in SoHo.

The purpose of this exhibit is to explore a common element prevalent in the work of Anagnorisis artists: The Grotesque.

Dan Ouellette | Mewler | 27x17" | graphite on paper

Exhibiting only a fraction of work that could have been included, Another Roadside Attraction hopes to at least bring a little more awareness to the strength of the language these works speak, and open up a critical dialog amongst those who have been arrested by it and those who wish to understand it more.

Christopher Conte | La Petite Morte | 3.5x4.5" | polyester resin | $1200

Please join us for one or both of the events we have planned around this group show:

Opening reception this Friday, November 12th, 6-8pm with an afterparty, location to be announced. Many of the artists will be present.

Discussion on the grotesque in art on Saturday, November 20th 5-7pm, lead by Dr. Nancy Hightower, instructor in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The exhibit will be on view from now until the end of the year at the ISE Cultural Foundation’s gallery, located at 555 Broadway, between Prince and Spring in the Scholastic building. Please note that in order to enter the gallery, you must be buzzed in after pressing their bell that is to the right of the door. You can take the stairs or the elevator to their basement gallery from the building’s lobby.

How will you know you’ve found the right place? Why, Charlie, Henri and Persephone, all part of Julie Anne Mann’s installation entitled Rue 29, will greet you at the door!

Please take a gander at our preliminary installation shots.  We hope they entice you further into coming down to see the exhibit!

The Little Deaths – Only a Few More Days! by dezzoster

All good things must come to an end, and sadly The Little Deaths exhibition has it’s time as well — this Friday February 19th. Though there’s no reason to fret, a few more days await between now and then to swing by if you haven’t had the opportunity yet, or enjoyed the work so much one visit just isn’t enough! Have you seen the show? Leave a comment, tell us what you think!

Flyer artwork by Dan Estabrook

Show Highlights:
Seasoned artists such as Roger Ballen, Christopher Conte, Christian Rex van Minnen and Carrie Ann Baade will punctuate the show with their highly developed signature styles. Ballen’s uncomfortable and real compositions, Baade’s wonderfully allegorical oil paintings, Conte’s bio-mechanical sculpture and van Minnen’s lush and visceral oil paintings have captured the attention of many collectors around the world. The sensual works of the relatively unknown artists, Alex Passapera and Caitlin Hackett, explore themes of animal instinct in human nature. Both artists are very new to exhibiting their work, yet show strong potential for success. Passapera’s detailed ink or pigmented figures are often humans depicted with or mutating into animal forms in sweeping lines and grotesque forms. Hackett’s grotesque animals drawn with ball-point pen and other mediums are exquisitely detailed and delicate, reminiscent of age-old Japanese prints.

Participating artists: Christian Rex van Minnen, Anastasia Alexandrin, Carrie Ann Baade, Roger Ballen, Eduardo Benedetto, Molly Bosley, Dana Bunker, Christopher Conte, Clayton Cubitt, Jonathan Davies, Cam de Leon, Dan Estabrook, Danielle Ezzo, Lori Field, Heather Gargon, Chambliss Giobbi, Celicia Granata, Caitlin Hackett, Scott Holloway, Tina Imel, John Kolbek, Craig LaRotonda, Samantha Levin, Julie Anne Mann, Nia Mora, Dan Ouellette, Alex Passapera, Jeanette Rodrigez, Erin Colleen Williams

“The Little Deaths” runs from December 4th, 2009 through February 19th, 2010, at Shadow’s Space located at 1248 N Front St (@ Thompson St., Girard stop on the Market Frankford Line) Philadelphia, PA.

Friday January 8, 7-10pm
On view through Feb 2, 2010

Artist’s Statement: “My central motive when creating is to free myself from preconception and the tyranny of Meaning, i.e. the human impulse to categorize. I believe that painting should not merely express the artist but should ideally also allow the viewer to derive several unique interpretations and reactions whilst simultaneously freeing that viewer from the perceived obligation to discover the artist’s original intent; something that often even the artist does not or can not know. In short, Art says as much about the viewer as the it does about the Artist.”

Bio: Born on March 23, 1979 in Camaiore, a small town near the coast of the Tuscan province of Lucca in northern Italy, Luke Jackson‘s family lived in the house that his father, renowned artist Harry Jackson, built in 1954. Luke’s high school education took place in Cody, Wyoming, Seattle, Washington, and Bath, Maine. He did his college foundation studies in Florence, Italy at S.A.C.I. in 1998 and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at UWE Bristol, England in 2002. In Bristol, Luke studied for several years under his mentor, Terence Wilson Fletcher. Luke has been living and working in New York since July 2004.



The Little Deaths – An Affair of Intimate Works by Binnorie

The Little Deaths
Flyer artwork by Dan Estabrook

Anagnorisis Fine Arts and Shadow’s Space are pleased to announce an exhibition featuring works that explore the visceral and intellectual foundations behind the well-known French term, “La Petit Mort” or “The Little Death”. Dramatically referring to orgasmic fainting spells or spiritual release, the term evokes the darker, and perhaps more realistic aspects of lust and love. One could possibly say that, through its association with death, it could also hint at the adverse emotions associated with intimacy.

Exploring various interpretations of The Little Deaths are artworks created by a wide range of outstanding artists, from some who are just beginning to show their work to those whose names are recognized internationally. The collection is eclectic, yet the artists, many of whom have created new works exclusively for the exhibit, were carefully chosen for the sensual elements inherent in their artistic styles.

All works are viewable on our online gallery: artanagnorisis/Gallery_TheLittleDeaths.html

Seasoned artists such as Roger Ballen, Christopher Conte, Christian Rex van Minnen and Carrie Ann Baade will punctuate the show with their highly developed signature styles.
