Deconstructing Allusion: Featuring Greg Miller
Sep 07-Nov 11
JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: Deconstructing Allusion: Featuring Greg Miller Fall 2017 Artists Reception: Thursday, September 7th, 2017 from 6pm-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by September 1st, 2017 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com DECONSTRUCTING ALLUSION The passage of time as well as the impermanence and transitory nature of collective memory are both felt in the work of Greg Miller, who constructs as well as deconstructs our perception of social history through the ephemera of the golden age of the print media. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work in which Miller layers and reconstructs this imagery of mid-century American consciousness in clever, incongruous juxtapositions that are a life-like, contemporary approach to Pop. Known for his cheekily playful and vividly rendered visual collages, Miller draws on his urban Californian roots, engaging with the ambiguity in the American landscape. In the works presented Miller explores the connection between advertising, urban environment, and our social history. Referencing classic typefaces and color palettes, the images echo both the look and feel of print advertisements. Miller achieves this impression by fastidiously and painstakingly re-creating the look of age, grit, and time through the use of paint, collage paper and resin on canvas, painting each visual element by hand. Millers work resonates on both visual as well as linguistic levels through the dialogue afforded by their association. Working with the imagery of the visual detritus in all of its faded glory, Miller preserves for us the ephemeral beauty of the printed material. GREG MILLER b. 1951, Sacramento, California spends him time between New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA. His work has been exhibited internationally and is featured in numerous private and museum collections. Greg Millers work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and youre sure to find the right artistic expression!

JoAnne Artman Gallery, Presents: Saddle Up New Works by Billy Schenck Nov 16th, 2017 January 20th, 2018 Artists Reception: Thursday, November 16th, 2017 from 6-8pm Please RSVP: 949.510.5481 by November 13th, 2017 JoAnne Artman Gallery 511A West 22nd St. New York, NY 10011 Contact: JoAnne Artman Telephone: 949-510-5481 E-mail: joanneartman@aol.com Website: www.joanneartmangallery.com Saddle Up Galloping horses, blood orange sunsets, dusty cowboys - you can almost feel the rising heat from the sun-warmed earth. Billy Schenck has a definitive flair for highlighting the drama, and evoking the action of classic Westerns along with their corresponding mythology. The American Frontier holds a special place in our nations history, as well as in our imaginations. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Billy Schenck, capturing the persevering nature of the myths and dreams of the Old West. Schencks work is not only cinematic in scope it is also grounded in technique and style. His iconic, reductive approach is reminiscent of the color planes used in early computer graphics, establishing a visual dialogue between the straightforward subject matter and the more nuanced space of the rendering. The textual element of the comic book-inspired word bubbles is of equal importance to the meaning of each piece, often serving to either undermine or establish the guiding ambitions of the characters psyche. In subject, Schenck goes for the iconic imagery of the Wild, Wild West - cowboys and Indians, sunsets and gunfire. Many of the scenes are a cheeky look at both the history of the American Frontier, as well as the established perceptions through the lens of contemporary popular culture, with a heavy dose of exaggerated passion and romance. The scenes pictured are at times comical, and at others, profound. Schenck plays up the ambiguity between his villains and heroes, underscoring the duality of human nature, a central theme in his work. BILLY SCHENCK b. 1947, Rural America works and lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Schencks artwork is in over 48 museum collections, including Smithsonian Institution, Denver Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Albuquerque Fine Arts Museum and the New Mexico Museum of Art. Billy Schencks work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and youre sure to find the right artistic expression!
