This Saturday, the Bowery Hotel in cooperation with Janos Gat Gallery is exhibiting works from Judit Reigl’s series Ink On Paper. Below, you can find a video link from the Kálmán Makláry Fine Arts in her native Hungary showing us the artistic process of her work.
The Bowery Hotel is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of new paintings by Bill Saylor entitled, “LIQUIDY SPLIT.” This exhibition, curated by Peter Makebish, presents a series of paintings, whose imagery and iconography rotates around the mythology of the rural American sublime. The emblazoned symbology comprised of images with various troupes of loss and decay, i.e. rattlesnakes, skulls, various crustations and the like, offer a dense and formalized surface for contemporary painting. Saylor’s lineage can be traced back to that of the early beginnings of the American painters of the 21st century. His visceral approach and tactual eye has resounded in numerous exhibitions and bodies of work, most notably within the American context of presentation and venues. Saylor’s roots belong to the space of American abstract expressionism. Aspects of Kline, Pollock, DeKooning and Motherwell are present within these new works, as well as later historical touchstones as Lupertz, Schnabel, and Polke. Although at once engaging in the immediacy of shock and awe, Saylor’s new body of work pivots and swerves into unknown directions and consciousnesses in a remarkably fresh and vital manner. In the current digital age we all live in, paintings such as the ones presented here in ‘LIQUIDY SPLIT’, offer us a unique view into the heart of what it means to be wrestling with the notion of the possibility that an ‘oil on canvas’ can suspend disbelief.
Bill Saylor has been included in various international exhibitions, including Leo Koenig Gallery in New York, Eleni Koroneou Gallery in Athens, Voges & Partner in Frankfurt and Asbaek Gallery in Copenhagen. He holds a BFA from Cal State Long Beach. Bill Saylor lives and works in New York City.
Mere hours after unveiling tunes off their just-released fifth album,Synthetica, for a horde of adoring fans inside the cozy Music Hall of Williamsburg, Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw of Metric invited us into a posh suite at NYC’s Bowery Hotel to tape a performance for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube, which posts awesome sessions like this one every week (see them all here).
At the hotel, the duo stripped away the electric throb of their new single, “Youth Without Youth,” down to two-part harmonies, acoustic guitar and harmonica (!). All that remained from the original was a spare, digital beat, saddled up through Shaw’s iPhone.
