Robbii, Foundlings

 

"I have been collecting stray bits and pieces of interesting objects for years. Not having anything in particular to do with them, they just lived with me. Since 2007 I started to give these stray objects a home and I called them Foundlings. With artificial mechanisms, parts of unknown objects and natural elements, they speak of some unknown purpose or history. Each with its own kind of suggestive dialog. To date, I have created over 100 pieces."


"I take a very methodical approach to creating my assemblages. Found objects are arranged in a formal style following in the tradition of such artists as Joseph Cornell and Louise Nevelson. Balance, composition and texture are integral elements of my work that act as a means to explore the redemptive qualities of discarded material. Ultimately, in contrast to their humble origins, these assemblages transcend the found quality of their individual parts to become shrine-like objects of beauty."

 

Robbii's work will be featured along artist David Barnett during the opening reception of David Barnett - Robbii: Collages and Assemblages" on October 21st from 6 - 8 p.m. at CW Gallery, 375 Atlantic Ave. Brooklyn NY 11217

David Barnett - "Collages and Assemblages"

David Barnett, "Damselfly"
mixed media, 12" x 12" x 4"

David Barnett

"Combining found elements with those fashioned by my own hand, my work encompasses two- and three-dimensional collage as well as sculptural objects. Infused with a rich sense of history, the essence of my work lies in the age-old struggle between nature and the man-made industrial world. My challenge is to convey that sense of conflict in way that resonates with the viewer."

"I incorporate Victorian era botanical imagery, ancient anatomical diagrams, and vintage mechanical components along with natural materials. Whether it’s a rusty piece of metal, branches from an oak tree, or tiny turquoise-tipped rooster feathers, the right juxtaposition reveals itself to me—the more absurd, the better. A character is born and a narrative begins to unravel. The theme of flight is recurrent, as is the conflation of anatomy and mechanics. The result is a menagerie of ethereal winged creatures, human and animal hybrids, and fanciful flying machines. In this era of mass-production and instant gratification, it’s my hope that these intimate and meticulously crafted works will also evoke a sense of rarity, delight, and mystery."

Barnett's work will be featured along artist Robbii during the opening reception of David Barnett - Robbii:  Collages and Assemblages" on October 21st from 6 - 8 p.m. at CW Gallery, 375 Atlantic Ave. Brooklyn NY 11217

Hilary Robin McCarthy

Hilary Robin McCarthy, "Indian Wells Beach," "Splash," "Porthole 11"
oil on canvas, 16" diam., 2016

Hilary McCarthy is a contemporary painter who has been based in New York City for the past 16 years. She exhibits internationally and her work has been published in a variety of magazines and  blogs. Her work hangs in collections throughout the United States and Europe.

Hilary Robin McCarthy, "Grace"
oil and goldleaf on canvas, 36" x  36"

“My paintings are about the vulnerable human experience.  I try to capture the personality, longing and spirit of the figures I paint, connecting their hidden thoughts, joys, loneliness, and psychology to their expressions. I hope to express the beauty and mystery of human nature in my work. I aim for movement, and life, in my portraits so that the essence of the person shows through.  If I have succeeded, the viewer will fill in the blanks of a narrative I have left intentionally elusive.”

Lynne Wixon

"Things gather at the waters edge, including me."

Lynne Wixon, "Beach Cafe"
oil on canvas, 60 cm x 40 cm

Lynne Wixon is a painter who lives and works in Yorkshire in the north of England. She spends much of her time traveling the English coastline in search of architectural structures to use as inspiration for her paintings.

Wixon is spending some time in Brooklyn exploring its coastal areas and preparing for a new body of work.“I am drawn to the waters edge. It is not especially the sea that fascinates me but the architectural structures that have evolved through human activity and man’s connection with the sea.”

Lynne Wixon, "Stinson Beach"
oil on canvas, 120 cm x 80 cm

“I became interested in littoral structures after spending some time painting the beach houses north of San Francisco bay. I was fascinated by the eclectic constructions that had emerged on the beaches over time. I started the UK Coastal Tour in 2010 and have pretty much been working on it since then, it is probably a life time project. I usually spend a few weeks a year traveling to areas of the coast collecting visual information and working from it back in the studio for the rest of the year. I work in oil paint and water based mixed media.”

Lynne Wixon, "South Shields Lighthouse 1"
oil on canvas, 75 x 85 cm.

Wixon lives in the small coastal village of Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire but originates from the West Midlands and lived in Sheffield South Yorkshire for 30 years. She has taught art to University students and the general public, and runs classes for the local community from her Robin's Hood's Bay.

"I would not exactly describe myself as a landscape painter but maybe a painter of Engineering & Architecture in a landscape, usually on the coastline. It is not especially the sea that fascinates me but the structures that have evolved out of the human activity and mans connection with the sea."
