When you hear the word “brushstroke,” you probably think of color and texture, of paint applied to canvas in gestural motions. But “Strokes,” a new exhibition at Leslie Feely in New York, defies that expectation.

This is not a good year for modernism. But life is short and art is long. Kikuo Saito, who died last February at 76, is being honored by two exhibitions. At Leslie Feely in Manhattan is“Kikuo Saito: “The Final Years” (through October 14) and at Sam & Adele Golden in New Berlin, NY is “Kikuo Saito: Color and Drawing” (through March 24, 2017).

Robert Kelly Brings “Exquisite Junctions” to Sophia Contemporary for His First London Solo Show

09/30/16

Unlike the work of some artists who deal in abstraction, Robert Kelly’s meticulous compositions are deeply rooted in the stuff of the real world. The formidable paintings—“formal puzzles,” he has called them—mix line and color with vague remnants of text. In “Black on Bone,” a selection of his commanding work is now on display at Sophia Contemporary, marking the American artist’s first London solo show

In “The Final Years,” See the Last Works of a Celebrated Japanese Painter and Set Designer

“It’s hard to resist seeing an artist’s final works as a summing up,” writes the critic and curator Karen Wilkin, “if not of everything that came before them, then, at least, of his preoccupations over his last few years.” Wilkin’s thoughtful essay accompanies “The Final Years,” a new exhibit of paintings by Kikuo Saito (1939–2016), the Japanese-born painter, set designer, and theater director who died this past February.

“The Keeper” is an exhibition dedicated to the act of preserving objects, artworks, and images, and to the passions that inspire this undertaking. A reflection on the impulse to save both the most precious and the apparently valueless, it will bring together a variety of imaginary museums, personal collections, and unusual assemblages, revealing the devotion with which artists, collectors, scholars, and hoarders have created sanctuaries for endangered images and artifacts. This exhibition will encompass a multi-floor presentation dedicated to the act of preserving objects, artowrks, and images.

In Hannelore Baron’s Art, a Voice of Defiant Hope and Survival

Can art born of unspeakable horrors express something other than the soul-scarring pain and trauma that forever mark its creator?

The art of Hannelore Baron (1926–1987) never explicitly poses this question; it is never overtly therapeutic or political, although, for its maker, it was always inescapably both. Still, it answers that query with a positive declaration of humanity as fulsome and knowing as the resonant “Yes.” Molly Bloom pronounces decisively at the end of James Joyce’s grand, psyche-probing Ulysses.

The League mourns the loss of longtime instructor Kikuo Saito, who passed away on February 15, 2016 at the age of 76. Originally from Tokyo, Japan, he moved to New York City in 1966. He studied at the League, and also worked as a studio assistant for Helen Frankenthaler, Kenneth Noland, and Larry Poons. In 1976, Saito began to exhibit his own work. He also worked as a theatre designer for many noted directors, and later directed his own plays. In 2005, Saito began teaching painting and color composition at the League. His harmonious paintings combine a heightened color sensibility with calligraphic strokes, and occasionally stenciled letters, alluding to his varied artistic influences.

The Hudson Review

The Hudson Review

By Karen Wilkin

"Jules Olitski: On the Edge, A Decade of Innovation," at Leslie Feely, was similarly revelatory. A fine selection of Olitski's delicately modu- lated paintings from the 1970s revealed his exploration of elu­sive surfaces, subtle hues, and tonal variations. Feely quotes Olitski as saying, ab out works of this kind, "I was trying to extend Rembrandt's use of flowing paint, his chiaroscuro, and just as much, his impasto into modern painting."

The Magnificent Jules Olitski, Painting the ’70s

The Magnificent Jules Olitski, Painting the ’70s

Observer.com

A suavely fabulous show at Leslie Feely is “Jules Olitski: On the Edge – A Decade of Innovation” (through January 16; closed December 24 to December 28, and December 31-January 1).

The decade referred to in the career of this still underrated, perhaps difficult master is the 1970s (14 magnificent paintings on view are dated 1972 to 1978).

During this period, Olitski—an abstractionist born in Snovsk, but raised mostly in Brooklyn—was moving on from his “spray” paintings of the later 1960s, but had not yet arrived at his “baroque” period of the 1980s, when he would lather on quantities of gel.

Illustrator Takes on 375 Million Years of Avian Evolution

Illustrator Takes on 375 Million Years of Avian Evolution

Tonight in Ithaca, New York, an unparalleled illustration takes flight. At 7:30 PM EST, artist Jane Kim will unveil The Marriage of Art and Science: A One-of-a-Kind Mural of Birds, the "only mural in the world depicting all 243 families of modern birds (and 28 dinosaurs and pre-pre-pre-historic beasts) in one place" at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Spanning 375,000,000 years of avian evolution, the 70' x 40' mural took Kim two-and-a-half years to make, requiring theInk Dwell founder paint a mind-bending entire bird per day. Scientific illustration is already one of the most difficult artforms, requiring years of practice to hone—not to mention putting a bird on it is no cakewalk—so the fact that each bird is drawn to scale, from the miniscule marvellous spatuletail hummingbird, to the 30' Yutyrannus ("feathered tyrant") dinosaur, makes it all the more impressive.

The Artists Forum Magazine Reviews Jules Olitski

New York, NY (November 8, 2015) Color came streaming into the Leslie Feely gallery on East 68th Street early November as the gallery unveiled a 14-portrait gallery of works by painter, Jules Olitski.  Jules works dominate the walls as he undergoes experiment with color and surface texture.  The name of the exhibition, "A Decade of Innovation," certainly lives up to it's name.  In his abstract expressionism, each canvas is filled edge to edge with grand strokes, creating a simplistic portrait with a deeper texture, as the dry paint occasionally adds a physical dimension to what can be considered a flat surface.

Must-See Art Guide: Upper East Side Galleries

Art Basel Miami is over, so you can finally start enjoying the most wonderful time of the year—and there's no better place than in New York. While you're busy running around buying last minute gifts, set aside some time for yourself to appreciate the artistic treasures of the city. The Upper East Side is definitely the place to be this time of year, especially Madison Avenue. Maybe you associate the neighborhood with Mad Men or the cruel world of 1960s advertising, but put that aside and head uptown because the Upper East Side gallery scene is one of New York's better-kept secrets.

11/09/2015

This is a rare chance to see a big collection of Friedel Dzubas’s big paintings. The German-born abstract painter (Who once shared a studio with Helen Frankenthaler) is known for massive, colorful compositions. The biggest one, “Crossing” is believed to be the largest single painting on canvas in the world. Originally commissioned in 1975 for a Boston bank, the piece hasn’t been displayed since the bank closed in 1991. Apparently the curator searched for the artwork for over a year, tracing it to the collection of Bank of America. Now, “Crossing” and other monumental paintings will be on display in Tower 49’s lobby and 24th floor galleries.

The Spray-Painter Savant: Artist Dan Christensen Earns Salutes from 2 NY Galleries

10/14/2015

“Dan Christensen: A Retrospective” a show at Berry Campbell (through October 17) drew scores of people to its opening reception, many of whom had to stand outside waiting in the street. Since this is the inaugural exhibition of the gallery’s newly-expanded ground-floor space at 530 West 24th Street, it was particularly newsworthy, and I’ll get to that. But it is not the only, or even the best, show of the lyrical spray-painter’s work in New York right now. The back room of the Leslie Feely Gallery, at 33 East 68th Street, is currently showing “Dan Christensen: Paintings from 1970 to 1989”—which for me is the most perfect little art show at this moment in New York.

Liliane Tomasko: The Last 10 Years

11/21/2015

The artist's paintings are veiled in darkness-evocative and emotionally charged. Over the last decade the underlying drawings beneath the layers of thick paint have evolved into her "inside out" paintings. A reversal of process, the colorful textiles are strewn, stacked and composed-undulating and transforming from abstraction to mountain vistas. From darkness into light, the viewer is transported to another time and space within these intimate, quiet and edgy interior settings.

James Prosek at Leslie Feely

08/26/15

Summoning up John James Audubon, Carl Linnaeus, and venerable field guides, these imaginative reconstructions of flora and fauna by self-taught artist, naturalist, and author James Prosek offered a tantalizing mix of abstract and realistic art, art history, and science. Perhaps the most eye-catching of Prosek’s works was the full-wall painting featuring black silhouettes of passenger pigeons, extinct since the early 20th century. Attached to the painting was a small panel near the bottom right displaying the birds’ splendid coloration. The work reprised a much larger version. In addition, there were little numbers placed throughout the work, as if referring to information about the pigeons, but none was forthcoming.

Robert Motherwell recounts that in 1951, Edna Wells Luetz, the newly appointed Chair of Hunter’s Department of Art, reached out to the Museum of Modern Art’s founding curator, Alfred Barr, in search of “a modern artist, and one who is articulate.” This marked the beginning of Hunter College’s commitment to artists as teachers, and to hiring artists fully engaged in the questions of the art of their time.  Barr recommended Motherwell, and at Motherwell’s urging, Luetz would bring to Hunter a number of artists associated with the New York School. The artists included in this exhibition are William Baziotes, Fritz Bultman, Richard Lippold, Ray Parker, and George Sugarman. This remarkable cohort defined the fundamental aesthetic and professional ambitions of Hunter’s art department, and affirmed its commitment to creative practice.

"Perhaps more than anything it’s his consistency which is so astounding – I’m yet to see an indifferent Diebenkorn painting. It’s made the selection process very difficult. What we’ve tried to do is make the point that to move from abstraction to figuration, and then back again, was not as strange for Diebenkorn as it might seem. For him it was actually totally natural, and the three rooms of the Sackler Galleries really help to make that clear. Looking back, you can anticipate that shift in the earlier works. There was a very natural, fluid relationship between the abstraction and figuration, and I hope the exhibition is able to demonstrate that.”

Cornelia Thomsen's Dizzying Abstract Works Debut at Leslie Feely by Wendy Vogel

01/10/2015

For sheer optical impact generated by an abstract painting, Barnett Newman’s Vir Heroicus Sublimis, 1950–51, is hard to beat. Photographs fail to capture the buzzing sensation behind one’s eyeballs when standing in front of the 18-by-8-foot canvas, whose rich red field is punctuated with the Abstract Expressionist’s signature vertical “zips.” And while Newman’s heavy, metaphorical language hasn’t withstood the test of time, his perceptual legacy is evergreen: artists from Op art to Scottish bad boy Jim Lambie’s psychedelic neon-tape floor patterns have attempted new ways to trick viewers’ eyes.

“They’re empty beds, but they bear traces of human activity, so they’re very suggestive. However, to me the bed is also a portal to another reality. Without sleep or escape from the bright certainties of daylight, deprived of the ability to dream, we’d soon enter a world of total insanity. And that’s how these paintings of unmade beds became dreamscapes: traveling through the unmade spaces of a body asleep and a mind awake.”

Tactile Sensations, Borrowed from Nature by Robert C. Morgan

“You have to get close, then move back, slowly,” I tried to explain to a motley group of graduate students whom I asked to see the recent paintings and drawings by Cornelia Thomsen at the uptown Leslie Feely gallery. This highly original hard-edge painter and soft-edge draughtswoman has produced one of the more interesting exhibitions involving color, line, and form in the current enterprise of abstract painting. Her pictorial images, which are a compendium of layers of color involving time, intuition, and pressure from hand to surface, appear to have their own point of view rather than conforming to the current look of abstraction, which, given the plethora of art media today, already has begun to appear repetitive.

I stumbled into this beautiful exhibition at Leslie Feely Gallery almost by accident. A mini survey of works by Frank Stella was on view in two elegant rooms. The works were made between 1971 and 1987. Historic yes, distinguished yes and a visual delight to encounter. To begin we find on entrance wall this Malevich quote: “….only he is alive who rejects his convictions of yesterday.” Later I found the same quote printed in a 1978 Stella catalogue from the Fort Worth Art Museum. This statement is a guide to what Stella has been about since the beginning of his long and extremely productive career.

"I was able to use my gift for structure with something that modernism hadn't really exploited before, the idea that paintings could be constructed, made by picture-building...Building a picture was something natural for me. Build it and then paint it. It was a job I was well suited for."

- Frank Stella quoted in William Rubin ed. Frank Stella: 1970-1987 (New York, 1987), p.40.

The Retrospective Works 1958-2012

August 9, 2012

Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg hosts a Frank Stella retrospective through January 20, 2013. In part a celebration of the artist's 75th birthday, the show boasts drawings, sketches, and architectural models in addition to numerous large-scale works, and offers a unique viewing experience as well—Stella staged the exhibition himself, making the most of the museum's customizable, flexible wall system. This presentation attempts a comprehensive overview of Stella's influential career thus far, and—for the first time—a broader contextualization of that work beyond the boundaries of modernism.

Frank Gehry & Rodarte

Frank Gehry & Rodarte

July 10, 2012

Performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mozart’s Don Giovanni shares the tale of a promiscuous nobleman and his eventual downfall to the throngs of Hell for his wrongdoings. Frank Gehry, who, in 2003, designed the Disney Concert Hall where Don Giovanni is being shown, was asked to construct the opera set which is paired with the costume design of sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte.

Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series

Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series

June 15, 2012

This retrospective of Diebenkorn's most celebrated and largest body of work opened September 2011 at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth before traveling to the Orange County Museum of Art. It soon commences its third and final stop at Washington D.C.'s Corcoran Gallery of Art, where it will run from June 30-September 23, 2012.

The exhibition showcases more than 80 paintings, prints, and drawings spanning the two decades Diebenkorn dedicated to this series. Representing a stylistic transformation from his previous figurative practice to monumental geometric abstractions, these pieces capture a sense of the Ocean Park community of Southern California where the artist created them between 1967 and 1988. The show highlights the previously unrecognized depth of the Ocean Park works, offering an unprecedented demonstration of Diebenkorn's artistic evolution and experimentation within this series.

GEHRY AT ART BASEL

December 1, 2011

Frank Gehry was the buzz at Leslie Feely Fine Art. The superstar architect, whose design for the New World Center on Miami Beach in January was the first arts highlight of 2011, is famous for the models he makes of works in progress -- but they’ve never been for sale.

Feely brought 15 of them to Basel -- priced from $25,000 to $120,000 -- and several were already gone Thursday afternoon, and multiple reserve bids for others.

Four years ago, Feely held a gallery show of museum models by Gehry, who is a friend. "He’s very attached to the models," she said. "’He said, ’You can’t sell any of them.’" But thinking about his family’s long-term ability to conserve such a extensive collection has swayed him, said Feely, chatting with Susan Kronick and Edward Shumsky, who met the architect during construction of New World Center and vouched for the size of Gehry’s "archive."

Gehry is expected to be in town for the show on Friday. "Miami is a place he’s very comfortable in," Feely said.

Richard Diebenkorn in Context: 1949-1952 at Leslie Feely Fine Art

May 1, 2010

NEW YORK, NY Leslie Feely Fine Art is presenting an exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculpture from Richard Diebenkorn’s Albuquerque period. In this precise and jewel-like exhibition, important Diebenkorns from the artist’s estate are seen with examples from his contemporaries which include de Kooning, Gorky, Gottlieb, Guston, Motherwell, and Smith. In addition to a very rare sculpture, the show features paintings and a number of seminal works on paper, several of which have never been exhibited. Other included works were previously shown in the Museum of Modern Art exhibition, The Drawings of Richard Diebenkorn, and the Whitney Museum’s historic Diebenkorn retrospective, The Art of Richard Diebenkorn. Diebenkorn is frequently placed critically alongside rather than among New York-based artists of comparable stature. Richard Diebenkorn in Context: 1949 - 1952 attempts to refine that perception. The works he created during this time show an immediate and masterful response to the most experimental work of the time and the degree to which those works informed his own development.

(January 10, 2008)—Before the Buildings

January 10, 2008

Daniel Kunitz reflects on the singularity of Gehry's models, discovering that they surpass his typical expectations that architectural models are ill-suited to gallery display.

Instead, Kunitz finds this exhibition to not only shed light on Gehry's mental processes and working practices, but also to enhance viewer's understanding of Gehry as a sculptural architect.
