Action//Reaction

Screen Shot 2017-07-22 at 2.29.28 PM.png

Ashok Jain Gallery is pleased to announce a new solo exhibition by Dan Obana and a group show featuring Emily Halpern, Zohar Wallach, Blair Berger, and Ryuchi Miura this autumn from September 13th to October 8th. Dan Obana’s “Encounters by Chance: Deepness and Strangeness” presents us with a surreal world. Of his work, Obana writes that “the 3D digital world in which I create is full of opportunities to encounter by chance. It is as if this is a generator that makes possible a synchronicity between my realist and subconscious.” Obana’s poignant works reveal the persistence of chance and connection in a digital age in which the nature of connectivity changes.

 

The group exhibition titled “Action//Reaction” focuses on the nature of exchange in 4 senses. Emily Halpern’s surreal work focuses on her internal world and begs viewers to recall their own and is an exchange of imaginations. Zohar Wallach’s explosive abstract paintings represent chemical actions and reactions. Blair Berger’s works focus on the power of paint and the interaction of color on a canvas. Ryuchi Miura’s land and cityscapes present the viewer a world to insert themselves into and beg us to ask ourselves how we interact with our world.

You are cordially invited to an exhibition, "Action//Reaction” which will be held in space B of Ashok Jain Gallery.

Artist Reception: September 15th 6-8 PM

Exhibition Dates: September 13th-October 8th

The series is in its fourth year and will present emerging and established artists from Japan. Ashok Jain Gallery has been holding this exhibition series with the purpose of introducing Japan Arts, from traditional to contemporary, into the New York City art scene.

The first solo artist, Yuuki Kobayashi, is having his 2nd solo show in the gallery. He mixes traditional and contemporary style of art, incorporating calligraphic motifs in more modern works. He incorporates traditional Japanese symbols, such as the crane, into his work as well. Some of his ceramic works have even been gifted to world leaders at the 2016 Ise Shima Summit in Japan. His passion for peace and use of traditional Japanese art truly make his works unique! We are very excited to present him at Ashok Jain Gallery this summer.

The collection features over 200 works by 200 contemporary Japanese artists across all media. Featuring a range of traditional and modern subject matters, some artists reach towards an historical Japan while others strive for the present. Regardless, the collection presents a negotiation of a modern Japanese identity in a rapidly changing world. Much like our previous show, "Discover the One: Art from Japan," the art will be presented in a "competition-style" and will be judged based on ballots distributed during each four-day term. A winner will be chosen at the end of the show. We look forward to having you at the reception and having you cast your ballots!

Beyond Words

Emily Halpern

Reception

May 24th 6- 8 PM

Emily Halpern's paintings map her inner world and are a combination of abstract and representational images, featuring bold colors and symbols, expressing a full range of moods.  Her process seeks to open the locked door of the unconscious through methods suggested by Surrealism.  The darkly humorous overtones and polished surfaces have obscured narratives and leave gaps for viewers to fill in, as a springboard for their own imaginations.

Halpern received her formative training in art at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where she earned her BFA. She received her MFA degree from San Diego State University where her work received the Presidential Purchase Award, the Arts and Letters Deans Purchase Prize, the Liberty Station Fellowship and other accolades.  Raised in Canada, she now lives and works in Los Angeles at the Brewery Artist Community. Emily’s paintings have been shown in Manhattan, the Hamptons, Los Angeles,  San Diego, Miami, Seattle and Vancouver.

"Cosmic Consciousness"

A Solo Exhibition

"Cosmic Consciousness"

by Laura McClanahan

Reception November 4th 6 - 8 PM

 

     Ashok Jain Gallery is pleased to present Laura McClanahan in the solo exhibition, “Cosmic Consciousness.” Adopted at birth to her family in Los Angeles, CA, and then at five moving to the East Coast, she found herself at an early age on a spiritual quest to understand her origins and human evolution through photographing nature as a way of orienting herself in the world. This led to a career teaching organic architecture informing her exploration of sacred geometry and the universal truths in natural patterns. Upon meeting her birth family in 2002 and seeing her birth father’s psychedelic paintings, she was inspired to get her MFA degree in Studio Art and transition from photography and teaching to painting that she then knew was in her genetics.

Laura McClanahan’s new paintings for “Cosmic Consciousness” explore the metaphor of water and light patterns to our patterns of thought and behavior. She believes that we can be aware of being in the flow or not and learn what is blocking our way. The artist states, “Noticing the synchronicity occurring around you can guide you though life with a sense of wonder and magic.” She performs in a weekly sacred sound healing meditation with her planetary chakra drums and flower of life gong that influences her state of serenity so she can be in a creative flow and feel connected to the universe.

 

The healing frequencies can be seen in her constructed cosmic universe of spirals, circles and flow patterns. Her paintings are created during a meditation as she pours paint outside so that the energy of the sunlight becomes a part of the painting as it dries. The work energetically calls in a cosmic scalar field by the generous use of earthly elements such as gold and quartz crystals imbedded in the resin in her paintings. This literal cosmic force changes the ions in the air and creates a beneficial environment around the paintings.

 

This is Ms. McClanahan’s first solo exhibition at Ashok Jain Gallery opening Wednesday, November 2nd and continuing through Sunday, November 27th, 2016. An artist’s reception will be held Friday, November 4th, 6-8 p.m.

Current: The Path that Leads to Oneself

Annette Mewes-Thoms

Janusz Obst

Jon Tsoi

Reception: Thursday, June 30 / 6 - 8 PM

Ashok Jain Gallery is pleased to present 'The Path that Leads to Oneself', a group exhibition featuring Annette Mewes-Thoms, Janusz Obst, and Jon Tsoi. Opening on Thursday, June 30, the exhibition is the presentation of selected artworks from the three artists.

Annette Mewes-Thoms’ inspiration comes from observation of water surfaces. She obtains the clear yet distorted images from reflections created by waves. The reflections give her a new perspective to meditate herself and surroundings. The meandering lines on the canvas engage the viewers and enable them to fully enter the work. 

Janusz Obst’s strong light and dark contrasts are created by deeply sculpted surfaces that contribute to narrative scenes that reflects the artist’s experiences. As a young Marine, he travelled the world and spent much of his young adult life in Europe, China, Africa, and India. It is this time period when Obst was captivated by sculpture and cultivated his own style.

The artist encourages the audience to experience the depth, color, dimension and the impression that his works convey rather than a fixed and straightforward definition. Obst believes that the viewers can have different experiences with artworks by bringing their own experiences, memories, and knowledge into the artistic space.

Jon Tsoi’s process of creating artworks is extraordinary and unprecedented. The Blindfold Mystery Art Medicine series was created by the artist wearing a blindfold. The process implicates the significant idea that one continuously observes and experiences the outer world and surroundings while simultaneously reflecting on their inner vision and intuition. The products of this thought process lead viewers to meditate on oneself and the world we live in.

Wordless Dimension

Solo Show by Janusz Obst

 

Reception: April 29, 6 - 8 PM

Ashok Jain Gallery is pleased to announce, Wordless Dimension, a solo exhibition of artworks by Janusz Obst at 58 Hester Street. Opening on Wednesday, April 27, the exhibition is the presentation of bas-reliefs.

 

“I believe in staying true to myself throughout the creative process of wordless expression, regardless of past influences and current trends.”

- Janusz Obst

Janusz Obst is a classically trained artist from Zamosc, Poland, where he was born in 1946. As a young marine, he travelled the world, having spent much of his young adult life in Europe, China, Africa, and India. It was in India where he was captivated by sculpture, and for the last three decades he has focused his work on bas-relief. 

Bas-reliefs, traditionally having been painted, give Janusz the opportunity to resurrect his love for this classic art form and marry his passion for sculpture and painting. This methodology allows him to freely build three-dimensional space and to broaden the narrative possibilities within each piece. His art permeates the interaction between the history of civilization, individual fate, current social and community-based issues, and his unfaltering interest in the interpersonal relationships within the context of the modern world. Janusz moved to the United States in 1991, and he currently lives in New York City.

The opening reception for Wordless Dimension will be on Friday, April 29, 2016.
