New Group Show "Looking In"

Opening Reception Friday, April 23rd from 6-9 pm
New Group Show Featuring the Artwork of: Pauline Galiana, Hovey Brock, and Robert Szot
On view from April 23rd, 2010 until May 31st, 2010
Please join Muriel Guepin Gallery on Friday, April 23rd from 6-9 pm to celebrate the opening of a new group show "Looking In," featuring paintings and mixed media works by Pauline Galiana, Hovey Brock, and Robert Szot.
The artists in "Looking in" create work that implores you to look closer by relinquishing your habits and preconceived ideas.
Layering stickers, fruit tags, and the remnants of her own art-making process, Pauline Galiana creates mixed media collages. Her work is a personal diary comprised of the left-over materials of daily life.
Hovey Brock's paintings are composed of many layers of transparent washes of intense colors. His goal is for viewers to release the habits that govern the way they look, and to get "lost" in his paintings.
In his paintings, Robert Szot chooses to respond to unanswered questions relevant painters have left untouched in their own work. His study of the history of the medium allows him to create abstract canvases that engage viewers while remaining quietly personal.

Press Release and Opening @ PAVEL ZOUBOK Gallery (CHELSEA)

Girl Talk COLETTE INDIA EVANS April 22 – May 22, 2010
PAVEL ZOUBOK GALLERY is pleased to announce GIRL TALK, a conversation exhibition of mixed-media collages and sculptures by COLETTE and INDIA EVANS that explore gender through historical and poetic evocations of femininity. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, April 22 from 6-8pm or during the run of the exhibition, which continues through May 22.
The gallery is located at: 533 West 23rd Street (between 10th & 11th Avenues) Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10am-6pm
GIRL TALK brings together two artists, COLETTE and INDIA EVANS, who explore the iconography of traditional femininity to explore issues of gender and identity. Since the 1970s COLETTE’s pioneering performances and mixed media installations have established a unique brand of “hyper-feminine feminism” that is carried forward in the work of emerging artist INDIA EVANS. Coming from distinctly different sides of the Feminist movement, these two women find common ground in their unapologetic celebration of beauty, embellishment and the erotic.



Critic Alexandra Anderson-Spivy writes,

“COLETTE's essentially blithe esthetic has celebrated aspects of the feminine during the rise of an era when academic feminism declared suspect everything conventionally associated with enjoying being a girl. That includes high heels, fashion and make-up, not to mention good manners, elegance and romance. Her pieces also have hypothesized an ambivalent relationship with domesticity and fashion, posing questions about the nature of female roles in art and life without ever rejecting femininity. Through the manipulation and dramatization of her female archetypes Colette constantly alters stereotypes into something fresh, provocative and glamorous.



Her characters are allegorical. They invoke a highly theatrical symbolism to investigate social history and to challenge gender cliches. Her work constantly mines her own personal history and her associations with art and art history. During the past three decades Colette has enacted many recreations of legendary women, among them Delacroix's figure of liberty, Marianne; Mata Hari (in 1984 the artist turned her Berlin apartment into the boudoir of the alluring spy); and the Countess Reichenbach (1986), a fictitious aristocrat from the era of the extravagant King Ludwig”.



INDIA EVANS’ erotically charged collages explore a similarly “feminine” vocabulary, combining images of beautiful women culled from old books and vintage postcards, mixed

media, fragments of lace and beading, as well as the artist’s own poetic meditations – delicately written in thread onto the picture surface. Through an intricately conceived play of visual and verbal signs, Evans many “characters” are cast into erotic narratives that are at once alluring and disturbing. Their stories are played out in richly colored landscapes and architectural interiors, whose hard-edged style recalls the Surrealist canvases of Giorgio de Chirico. Evan’s poetry brings together content and context, asserting her presence in these lush dreamscapes.



INDIA EVANS began her career in Italy, where she studied at the Lorenzo de’ Medici, Florence and the Accademia di Belle Arti, Perugia. She has had three solo exhibitions in Rome and has exhibited in several group exhibitions in the United States and abroad. This is the artist’s first exhibition at Pavel Zoubok Gallery.
