NEW YORK CITY– FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BETH CARTER

DANCING WITH MORPHEUS

SOLO EXHIBITION

February 6 – March 8, 2014

OPENING RECEPTION ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 6-8PM (RSVP REQUIRED)

 

           

 

BERTRAND DELACROIX GALLERY presents Dancing With Morpheus, Beth Carter’s upcoming solo exhibition. The collection of new works will be Carter’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, although her work has been featured in numerous BDG group shows in the past. Carter, a native of Bristol, England, is known for her fantastical sculptures and for her intricately detailed drawings on paper. This show will introduce ten new sculptures and several new drawings.

Carter first crafts her sculptures out of clay or wax and subsequently casts them into limited edition works in bronze or resin.  Her work is distinct in that while it is deeply rooted in mythology, it plays with classical precedents to create a new genre – one that is steeped in fantasy, melancholy and whimsy. The artist categorizes her works as “magical realism.” There is something captivating and peculiar about her enchanting minotaurs, winged creatures and hybrid forms. Her unusual sculptures are derived deep in her subconscious; the artist emphasizes that her works emerge from an internal, contemplative place. This unfiltered emotion is clear in her striking works.

Perhaps Carter’s most well known piece is the Reading Minotaur, a vulnerable half man, half bull creature naked and hunched over a tiny gold book. This tender piece encapsulates many of the larger themes that run through her entire body of work. Her art often explores the nature of duality and opposition; whether it is the relationship between beasts and humankind, vulnerability and power or the real and the imagined, Carter cleverly juxtaposes conflicting ideas that the viewer, alone, must reconcile. The distinct sense of melancholy present in Carter’s art allows her creatures to be at once physically imposing and emotionally vulnerable. Her thoughtful drawings in charcoal and conté demonstrate this same interior drive to explore sadness and the subconscious. Carter’s unique works create an alternate reality – one that invites the viewer to partake in a journey to a strange, dreamlike world where the lines between man and beast, reality and fantasy and the possible and impossible are no longer clear.

Also included in the exhibition are two whimsical animation boxes that Carter created in collaboration with her husband, digital producer Stuart Mitchell.

Beth Carter received her degree in Fine Art from Sunderland University in the United Kingdom. In 1995, she was awarded 1st prize in the Northern Graduate Show ‘95 at The Royal College of Art, London. Afterwards, she traveled to Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand, Mexico, Gambia, Kenya and Tanzania to study mythological sculpture. Her work has been shown in the US and abroad and appears in private collections throughout Europe, Asia and the US. She has temporarily relocated from the UK to Brooklyn, NY to prepare for this exhibition; she will attend the reception tomorrow, February 6.

Joseph Adolphe, Bertrand Delacroix Gallery (March 27 – April 26, 2014)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –NEW YORK CITY

JOSEPH ADOLPHE

MESSAGES, MEMORIES AND DREAMS

MARCH 27 – APRIL 26, 2014

Opening Reception on Thursday, March 27, 6-8pm (RSVP REQUIRED)

 

      

 

Canadian artist JOSEPH ADOLPHE returns to BERTRAND DELACROIX GALLERY with a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new work entitled Messages, Memories and Dreams. Adolphe is a versatile contemporary painter who succeeds in portraying subjects ranging from sensual nudes and large, blooming buds to charging bulls and regal horses.  Adolphe’s second solo exhibition at BDG will introduce an all new series of oil on canvas pieces, including new florals, and powerful animals as well as new paintings wherein he ambitiously attempts to describe the most profound moments in his life in works he refers to as ‘locutions’.  Several of the works continue his recent exploration into the possibilities created through the use of gold leaf. With the addition of this bold effect, he creates stunning visual masterpieces that are strong in composition and subject while remaining aesthetically enticing.

Adolphe’s works have an Old Master/Expressionist quality with rich, visible brushstrokes and a clear understanding of motion; however, he endows his work with an undeniable modernity and relevancy to today’s rapidly changing world. His works are fraught not only with frenetic movement and energy but with a palpable sense of emotion and drama. He combines strong, defined forms bursting with life with loosely structured backgrounds that often border on abstraction. His large flowers, ripe fruits and wild animals are often the only clear images amongst a frenzied world of color and confusion. Whether he depicts a raging bull or a sensitive nude, there is a sense of vulnerability and universal anxiety about the world in his works. His works frequently juxtapose strength and uncertainty thus giving his subjects a feeling of resilience and perseverance in the face of the unknown.  On his work, the artist states:

All of my paintings, whatever the subject matter have at their core the same content. I’m always trying to capture in paint energy, enthusiasm and an ardent sense of hope. These characteristics embody the essence of those people who I have come to admire and try to emulate.

Born in 1968 in Alberta, Canada, Adolphe moved to New York City in 1992 to attend the School of Visual Arts from which he received his MFA in 1994. His paintings have been featured in over forty exhibitions since 1998 throughout the United States and internationally. He lives with his wife and children in New Haven, Connecticut and is a professor in the Department of Art & Design at St. John’s University in New York City. He will attend the opening reception on March 27.

Images above are Ripe I (Oil on Canvas, 62″ x 48″), Hothouse Blossum No. 3 (Oil on Canvas, 70″ x 80″) and Dresssage I (Oil on Canvas, 55″ x 65″).
