    Marlborough Fine Art London is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by American sculptor Beverly Pepper (b. 1922), opening on 1 July 2014. It will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in the UK and an important moment for the artist who at 92 years old, is frequently compared to contemporaries such as Louise Bourgeois and Louise Nevelson.

    The exhibition will celebrate a prodigious career that has spanned seven decades, containing new sculptures and works on paper. The series of work continues to explore the artist’s ongoing fascination with time, materiality and place, and is part of Pepper’s wider series of curved forms, or Curvae

    Diane Tuft: Digital Catalogue 

     
    In 2012, a grant from the National Science Foundation brought photographer Diane Tuft to Antarctica for six weeks. The resulting series of photographs captures the dramatic natural landscape of this remote and ancient continent. Details of ice and rock are distilled into stunning forms for the viewer to consider anew. The photographs are both visual and scientific studies, conveying the subtle and violent atmospheric changes registered on the Antarctic landscape over millions of years.
     
    Tuft's rich color photographs capture the high levels of ultraviolet light in Antarctica, thereby exposing the visual effects of years of climate change. These works are available as color pigment prints in three sizes, each an edition of five. The black and white photographs, shot on infrared film, are presented as platinum prints and are available in two sizes, each an edition of five. 
     
    Shown below is a booklet showcasing a selection of the twenty-seven works that will be on view at Marlborough from June 4 through July 3, 2014.

    6:30 am, Robert Weingarten at Peabody Essex Museum 

    Mar 29 2014 - May 31 2014

    In January 2003, at 6:30 am, Robert Weingarten launched his photographic odyssey. Over the course of the year, he made daily exposures at precisely 6:30 am, maintaining an identical combination of camera, 350-millimeter lens, slow-speed film and viewpoint overlooking Santa Monica Bay. Five of his large-scale, luminous photographs of Malibu capture what the artist calls "the fleeting nature of a particular confluence of light, and conditions that render a moment dramatic and singular."

    Weingarten's photographs engage a long tradition of photographing in sequence, chronicling the way a scene changes from moment to moment, and day to day. The bold, immersive colors also call to mind works of American Expressionist artists, especially Mark Rothko, whose color field paintings have influenced generations of artists. Weingarten reminds us that it is not always necessary to travel to make great photographs, and that sometimes the best art is made close to home.

    Richard Estes' Realism 

    May 22 2014 - Feb 08 2015

    Press Release

    Richard Estes’ Realism, a retrospective exhibition jointly organized by the Portland Museum of Art in Maine and the Smithsonian Museum of Art in Washington, D.C., will feature 50 paintings, a range of nearly 50 years (1964-2013) of the artist’s work. The show will open at the Portland Museum of Art on Thursday, May 22 and will continue until September 7, 2014. It will then travel to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, where it will be on view from October 10, 2014 until February 8, 2015. 

    Richard Estes is widely considered the master of Photorealism, a form of hy­perrealist painting where a photograph is projected onto the canvas as the source of the image and then painted. In Estes’ case, however, photographs are used only as a starting point. His mastery of painting and technical virtuosity allows him to create surfaces that evince an allover tonal richness, which combined with crystalline clarity of detail, engender a striking magnetic presence. While the ostensible subject is reality, his work is, as art historian Linda Nochlin has pointed out, “concerned with conveying the non coincidence of tac­tile and visual reality,” or, to put it a different way, as the curator Patterson Sims writes, “Estes reveals and revels in a world hidden in plain sight.  His highly detailed works inspire and reward being regarded at length…in the long tradition and history of representational painting he deploys his exceptional skills to turn his observations into revelations.”

    Richard Estes’ Realism will be accompanied by a monograph with essays by Patterson Sims, an independent curator, and Jessica May, Curator of Contemporary and Modern Art at the Portland Museum of Art.  It will also include a detailed chronology by Helen Ferruli, an independent art historian. The book will be published by the Portland Museum of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. It will be distributed by Yale University Press.
