MFA Painting Alumnus, Angela Dufresne, recently had a solo show of her works on paper at Steven Havery Fine Art Projects!

Author: matthews

Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of drawings and videos by Angela Dufresne. The exhibition will show the range of Dufresne’s work on paper and the breadth of her drawing style.  It will include atmospheric, tightly rendered graphite drawings from the mid-2000s, many of erotic public encounters; quick studies of friends and personalities; and energetically drawn charcoals with multiple figures and rowdy narratives in hybridized settings.   Dufresne’s work is theatrical but not explanatory, evocative of weird stories, and borrowing from mythology, film, art history and strange fantasy narratives. Figures, mythological animals, and interspecies creatures are grafted into complex interiors and landscape settings. Smaller scale portraits show actors in roles—Dufresne’s  role models and alter egos—as well as friends performing in half human guises.   Read More

B.F.A. Painting Alumnus, Fran Siegel has a solo show up now at Lesley Heller Workspace!

Author: matthews

"Infrastructure," Los Angeles based artist Fran Siegel’s solo exhibition of collaged drawings and wall sculptures, encapsulates the shifting dynamics of global migration. Taking cues from Calder’s circus and Fellini’s “La Strada,” this latest body of work fuses vast urban plans with the microcosm of a traveling circus to highlight this pivotal issue. Siegel’s itinerant circus travels from town to town, pitching its temporary tent. Her Infrastructure is unstable, off-kilter and crumbling: power lines, transmitters, and structural rigs appear skeletal and transitory. Shifting perspectives generate a sense of motion and time throughout the exhibition. Viewpoints are pieced together: up, down, fractured, cut, and layered. Images are piled from ground to sky: a paper-thin stone fence hovers near the floor, light-filled paper mâché sculptures bulge from the wall, and cloud formations depict fleeting moments above.
