Corks by Jasper Morrison

Gessato

May 14, 2019

Renowned designer Jasper Morrison makes beautifully minimalist products that give a distinctive character to honest materials and simple shapes. Museums that have included his work in their permanent collections include MoMA, New York, Centre Pompidou, Paris, and the V&A Museum, London. The new Corks line showcases the designer’s ability to use natural materials in new ways. Made in a limited-edition, the cork family Jasper Morrison line at the Kasmin gallery in Chelsea, NYC marks the designer’s first solo gallery show in North America.

Brisk Sales And A Changing Art Market At Frieze's VIP Preview

Frieze New York held its VIP Preview on Thursday, in a huge, bright tent on Randall's Island. Collectors were once again awed by the quality of the work, and sales were brisk in an art market that has seen subtle changes but keeps going strong.

Frieze New York Clings to Selfie Culture and Escapism for its 2019 Edition

Observer

May 2, 2019

William N. Copley’s 1975 homage to the comedian W.C. Fields at Kasmin Gallery’s booth weaves the entertainer’s quotes into the motif of the American Flag. Quips like “You can’t cheat an honest man,” “Never give a sucker an even break” and “At least it’s not Philadelphia” run over top each of the three scrolls. Copley’s double portrait of Fields and America plays out well today on all fronts, but for the jab at Philly. That city’s always worth a visit.

At the same booth, Roxy Paine’s carefully carved maquette rendering of an airline security checkpoint feels near electric, bristling with political overtones when it debuted in 2013. The viewing window alludes to a kind of theatre of illusions and outright deception. The cast, though, remains conspicuously absent, either signaling a shut down for the evening or the aftermath of a more dramatic event.

The entrance to Frieze New York this year is a selfie-taker’s dream: an enchanting installation of steel spheres by Yayoi Kusama, with an aisle just wide enough to pose in, spills out across the floor in front of a billboard-size painting by Chris Ofili of women in a languorous pile at the foot of a mountain.

The Eye is the First Circle is an emotional tour de force. After more than 20 years in a private collection, the last large-scale Lee Krasner in private hands spans nearly 20 feet, a tightly contained, yet expansive, explosion of anguish, rage, and instinct that elucidates her life and career.

Sheer Presence: Monumental Paintings by Robert Motherwell

The Brooklyn Rail

May 1, 2019

Those of us weaned on the history of contemporary American painting will recognize the drips and pours of Pollock, the brushwork of De Kooning, the colors of Rothko, the marks of Mitchell, the zips of Newman, the gestures of Kline—but what do we associate with the paintings of Robert Motherwell? Of the many words that come to mind, the most inclusive choice would be “aesthetics,” a term for beauty expropriated from the Enlightenment, but this does not exactly fit the scheme of elocutions given to the other artists.

Outside the fairs, be sure you save time in your schedule to visit these exhibitions, on view at New York’s top museums, galleries, and collections.

“Naama Tsabar: Dedicated” will transform Paul Kasmin into a site-specific sculptural and sonic installation. Subverting the championing of masculinity in the history of music, Tsabar’s exhibition will redefine movement, mastery, and the female body through the union of iconic relics of rock and roll and the experience of an artistic body moving through space. Melodies of Certain Damage, for instance, will connect bits of broken guitars to Transitions (works on canvas, hanging on the walls), while other works will forefront the productive tension between disruption and femininity.

“The Supreme Gift … Is Scale”: Robert Motherwell’s Monumental Paintings

Hyperallergic

April 29, 2019

In a 1965 letter to poet Frank O’Hara, painter Robert Motherwell mused that “the supreme gift, after light, is scale.” Motherwell had recently completed a seven-by-seventeen-foot painting, called “Dublin, 1916, with Black and Tan.” This vast composition of black, red, blue, and ochre is one of eight mural-sized works featured in "Sheer Presence: Monumental Paintings by Robert Motherwell," on view at Kasmin in Chelsea. It’s the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the artist’s sweeping large-scale canvases, which grew, in part, out of the Californian spaciousness of his vision — the Washington-born painter grew up on the Pacific Coast and studied philosophy at Stanford — and the AbEx movement’s postwar humanist optimism, conceived under the sign of the vast American prairie.

Claude Lalanne, Whimsical (and Sought-After) Sculptor, Is Dead at 93

The New York Times

April 17, 2019

Claude Lalanne, a sculptor with a whimsical streak whose metalwork included quirky cutlery, an apple with lips, and bronze cabbages standing on chicken legs, died in Fontainebleau, France. She was 93. 

Lalanne’s works tended to be smaller and often drew on imagery from the botanical kingdom, as with elegant candelabra reminiscent of entwined branches or mirrors framed by bronze foliage. She found inspiration in the gardens at the couple’s home in Ury, south of Paris. “I never stop walking in the garden,” she told The Financial Times two years ago, “looking at what is there and using what I grow.”

She meant that in a very real way. In addition to her sculptures, Ms. Lalanne made jewelry, often using an electroplating process, in which something from her garden — a leaf, a twig — would be immersed in a bath of sulfuric acid and copper sulfate, leaving it with a delicate copper coating.

The Week in Arts: Robert Motherwell

The New York Times

April 13, 2019

You don’t look at a painting like Motherwell’s “Hoppla, wir leben!” with just your eyes. The exuberant orange expanse, one of eight paintings by the titan of abstract expressionism in “Sheer Presence: Monumental Paintings by Robert Motherwell” at Kasmin Gallery’s skylit new flagship location on 27th Street, is just under nine feet tall. You can’t see the scribbly charcoal figure, an impulsive cross between a fence and a Cyrillic letter, in the canvas’s roiling, sky-blue canton without imagining him stretching up on his tiptoes to draw it — and it’s hard to imagine that without rising to your toes yourself. As for “The Grand Inquisitor,” an explosive riff on the Belgian flag more than 14 feet long, it may require a few balletic leaps.

CLAUDE LALANNE (1924–2019)

Artforum

April 11, 2019

The French artist Claude Lalanne, known for whimsical nature-inspired sculptures, died in Fontainebleau on April 9 at the age of ninety-three. Lalanne worked as a duo with her husband, François-Xavier, from the 1960s until his death in 2008. Together, Les Lalanne, as they were known, created playful and surreal objets, often from cast bronze and in the form of flora and fauna, including sheep, apples, and rabbits. (She earned cult status when one of her works—a man with a cabbage for a head—appeared on the album cover of Serge Gainsbourg’s 1976 L’Homme à Tête de Chou.) Lalanne was a frequent collaborator with designer Yves Saint Laurent, for whom she created jewelry and a sculpture of model Veruschka’s bust for his fall 1969 collection. She continued to collaborate with the fashion industry well into this current decade, designing accessories for Dior’s spring 2017 collection.

“I am incredibly sad to lose a great friend and artist. I was always fascinated by my many, many visits to her and her family’s magical world,” Paul Kasmin said. The dealer presented an exhibition of Les Lalanne’s work earlier this year. Les Lalanne were recently the subject of a retrospective at Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and their work is in the collctions of the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

‘You Have to Be There’: The Power and Presence of Robert Motherwell’s Large-Scale Paintings

Frieze

April 10, 2019

‘The supreme gift, after light, is scale’, wrote Robert Motherwell in a letter to the poet Frank O’Hara in 1965. As demonstrated by an exhibition of his large-format paintings that opened at Kasmin Gallery’s recently-inaugurated 509 West 27th Street space last month, the artistic possibilities of scale were a constant concern throughout Motherwell’s long career. This exhibition of mostly later work is the first to focus solely on the monumental in his oeuvre, and features eight paintings: some, like Dublin, 1916, with Black and Tan (1963-64), take great joy in expanses of chromatic juxtaposition while others, such as Forced Entry (1981), exercise just a handful of brushstrokes to construct a rudimentary painterly gesture. Each of the eight captivate.

Jan-Ole Schiemann: “A Different Pose” at Kasmin Through May 4th, 2019

Art Observed

March 22, 2019

Now on view at New York space Kasmin Gallery, artist Cologne-based artist Jan-Ole Schiemann is mounting a debut solo exhibition, bringing with him a collection of new paintings that see the artist continuing to revel in both gestural abstraction and the history of 20th-century animation, aspects that combine to imbue his work with a rare sense of kinetic energy. Half-formed, simultaneously disappearing and reappearing shapes suggest that somewhere amidst the lines, there are figures tumbling, colliding, or fighting obscured by clouds of smoke. As a result of Schiemann’s meticulous, layered application of charcoal, oilstick, ink and acrylic.

Robert Motherwell Found Unlikely Inspiration in Architecture

Architectural Digest

March 22, 2019

As one of the founders of the Abstract Expressionist movement, Robert Motherwell was nothing if not ambitious. "It took a lot of courage for Motherwell to make these," remarks Kasmin gallery's director Eric Gleason, as he gestures towards the sweeping canvases pinned to the gallery's walls. "When he was making these, there just weren't very many big spaces to show them. He knew he would be sacrificing visibility for a lot of these." Given the sheer abundance of galleries and art spaces in New York City alone—throw a stone in Chelsea and you're apt to hit a white cube—it's difficult to imagine that there weren't many spaces to show 9" tall paintings in 1970's New York, but aside from Sidney Janis and Marlborough Gallery, such was the case.

9 Art Events to Attend in New York: Robert Motherwell

Artnews

March 18, 2019

Under the title Sheer Presence, this exhibit showcases eight large paintings created by Robert Motherwell between the 1960s and 1990, the year before his death. The title alludes to a state Motherwell once said he hoped to achieve: “sheer presence, beingness, as such, objectivity and true invention.” Among the works included is Open No. 97: The Spanish House (1969), a work from Motherwell’s Open series that features the outline of a rectangle inscribed on a monochromatic background.

A monumental Robert Motherwell show

Financial Times

March 18, 2019

Sheer Presence: Monumental Paintings by Robert Motherwell will be staged at the Kasmin Gallery in New York from March 21 to May 18 in what will be the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the late artist’s large-format works dating from the 1960s to 1990s. The event is also set to include a group of seminal paintings from The Dedalus Foundation, the arts organisation founded by Motherwell in 1981.

The abstract expressionist’s masterworks, some measuring 304cm x 223cm, promise to be a visual feast set against the Kasmin’s spare 279sq m interior. The eight graphic canvases on view include Dublin 1916, with Black and Tan (1963-64); The Forge (1965-66/1967-68); and The Grand Inquisitor (1989-90). Motherwell was known for his gestural, broad brushstrokes and dramatic contrasts of colour, but this exhibition also includes subtler works such as Open in Grey with White Edge (1971) – a soothing acrylic with faint hints of charcoal on canvas. Select pieces in the exhibition will be for sale through the gallery, priced from $2m to $10m.

In a career spanning over five decades, the prolific Motherwell was a painter, printmaker, teacher and editor, and these works are among his most visually arresting. “Motherwell was an especially emphatic, intuitive mark-maker, and the large-format canvas provided a vehicle for him to really embrace his painterly ambitions,” says Kasmin Gallery director Eric Gleason.

Inside Bosco Sodi’s Sprawling Red Hook Studio

Galerie Magazine

March 5, 2019

When Hurricane Sandy barreled through New York City in 2012, few neighborhoods were hit as hard as Red Hook, on the Brooklyn waterfront. After the storm surge receded, the pier at the end of Van Brunt Street was stained scarlet, like the remnants of a brutal crime scene perhaps. And, indeed, the devastation that confronted the artists, nonprofits, and businesses occupying the pier's 1860s brick-and-stone warehouses was horrible. Bosco Sodi, whose washed-away cache of pigments was responsible for the red residue, lost 18 of the process-intensive paintings he is best known for—their cracked and densely encrusted surfaces calling to mind lava fields or desert landscapes, often in vivid monochrome hues. A year's worth of his work was gone.

New pieces in an exhibition opening March 14 at Kasmin in New York, Wiseman's first with the gallery, will demonstrate just how his work bridges art and design. In his quest to realize a perfect jungle paradise, Wiseman will debut wallpaper depicting monkeys and a lagoon at the show as well, plus a monolithic marble fireplace with a collage composition of "fish scale, clover, chrysanthemums, water, and shark teeth." dwiseman.com – J.T. 

Six Must-See Figurative Painting Shows in New York

Galerie Magazine

March 1, 2019

Theodora Allen approaches plant life somewhat more slyly by softly weaving it into her symbolic still lifes. Blurring the boundary between landscapes and mindscapes, Allen untangles the medieval histories of Norse and English cultures to create sublime paintings of flora-filled shields and monuments. The shields envelop such psychoactive and medical plants as belladonna, marijuana and opium poppies, while the monuments depict the symbology of medieval Tarot cards—the cup, the coin, the branch, and the sword—in arched window-like forms surrounded by the same type of mentally destabilizing plants and weeds. Painted with a luminous, misty-blue, monochromatic palette, Allen’s enchanting canvases share the aesthetic appeal of early cyanotype pictures made by the first photographers during the Romantic era—thankfully resurrecting that poetic style for these uncertain times.

Matvey Levenstein Joins Kasmin Gallery

February 26, 2019

Matvey Levenstein’s paintings explore themes of history and representation, speaking to the relevance of Romanticism in the 21st Century. His quiet meditations are filtered through the most traditional painterly genres—the landscape, the still life, and the portrait—and are imbued with a distinctly literary sensitivity. A sincere engagement with nature, combined with the prevalent cinematic aspects of Levenstein’s work, call to mind radical 20th-century filmmakers such as Andrei Tarkovsky and Ingmar Bergman.

Goings on About Town: Matvey Levenstein

The New Yorker

February 25, 2019

Can loveliness shock? Yes, as witness the fantastically skilled and sensitive neo- or para- or faux-Romantic (you decide) work of Matvey Levenstein, a forty-nine-year-old Russian-American artist. The subjects of his paintings and ink drawings (at the Kasmin gallery through March 2), some on copper or wood, are forthrightly generic: landscapes from around Levenstein’s home, on the North Fork of Long Island, floral still-lifes, and a portrait of his wife, the painter Lisa Yuskavage, in a white bathrobe. Layered grays, orange-flavored sepia, and the odd palely simmering pink or blue constitute—or conjure, or exhale—spectral woods, clouds, a snow-covered ancient graveyard, and a storm at sea. Caspar David Friedrich comes to mind as an ancestral spirit, but the work recalls no specific precedent. Its tenor is coolly confident, assuming a viewer’s empathy. That jolts. You would expect a wink or a nudge, or a smack of naïveté or perversity in so atavistic a style. But no soap. Levenstein’s temerity fascinates.

Levenstein's Long Exposures

The New Criterion

February 21, 2019

Matvey Levenstein is notoriously slow with the brush, finishing only a dozen or so paintings or sumi ink drawings each year. It’s time well spent, and, partly as a result, his work is an anti-expressionistic respite from this insane cultural moment. The finely wrought paintings in his current exhibition at Kasmin Gallery in New York—landscapes and interior still lifes—whisper their purpose rather than shout, in the way that Dana Schutz’s wildly aggressive figurations just down Tenth Avenue do.

Artist Theodora Allen Embraces the Elements at Kasmin Gallery

Cultured Magazine

February 7, 2019

In Theodora Allen’s paintings, weeds grow, translucent but stubborn. The plants themselves are drawn with scientific precision, specimen-like. While so many paintings these days announce themselves as artworks, bellowing their contemporaneity, her works seem almost like artifacts, remnants of something simultaneously here and not here—like a glassy Xerox of an ancient illuminated manuscript. They are what I imagine I’d find inside Hildegard von Bingen’s dream journal, if she were born in California in 1985.

The Brooklyn Rail

February 5, 2019

There are fifteen oils on wood, canvas, or copper, and six large Sumi ink drawings on paper in Matvey Levenstein's first solo show in New York since his exhibition at the now-closed Larissa Goldston Gallery in 2009. Dating from 2015 to 2018, the works address traditional genres of landscape, still life, and portraiture, but Levenstein has developed a process that combines art historicism, casual photography, and technical rigor via a realistic perfectionism that both guides you into the artist's own world and lends magnitude to the quotidian. The pictures do not resemble those of Vermeer, but these explorations of settings of subtle historical significance on Long Island's North Fork around Orient, New York, elicit a similar level of truth.

The Chelsea outpost of the Kasmin galleries is a staple in New York City’s contemporary art scene. Its most recently-opened exhibition is a collaboration between renowned landscape architect and designer Louis Benech and the ever-imaginative sculptor duo Les Lalanne.

More than 30 sculptures from François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne were hand-picked by Benech for the exhibition, the installation of which is evocative of the artists’ home studio garden in Ury, France. It’s a whimsical scene to take in: a cast-iron baboon "Babouin" perches stoically while monkeys entangle themselves in the branches of a bronze chandelier "Structure Vegetale avec Singes". Nearby, the duo’s signature sheep seem to observe both gallery-goers and the rest of the sculptural menagerie.

Louis Benech Celebrates Les Lalanne in Curatorial Debut

Having completed over 300 projects from South Korea to Morocco, there’s not much that world-renowned landscape architect Louis Benech hasn’t done in his 30-year career. He even created the first contemporary garden for the Château de Versailles, a watershed moment that vaulted him to international acclaim. But before Kasmin’s enchanting Les Lalanne exhibition opened in New York last week, Benech had never been a curator.

The gallery’s founder, Paul Kasmin, tapped Benech due to his close personal relationship to French sculptors Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne, the married couple known collectively as Les Lalanne. In producing the show, Benech tracked down 45 of the duo’s whimsical works, including functional sculptures shaped like sheep, crocodiles, and monkeys, to just name a few.

Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne Work on View in a Maze-Like Exhibition at Kasmin

Architectural Digest

January 26, 2019

This exhibition marks another exciting leap of sorts for the relationship between Kasmin and the Lalannes. Paul Kasmin himself was the first to show the Lalannes' work in the United States—and has shown them many times since—and now, 30 years after Kasmin's opening, this exhibition is staged in the gallery's newest space on 27th Street in Manhattan, which opened last fall. To put an architectural spin on the setting for the the objects, Kasmin called on garden guru and AD100 Hall-of-Famer Louis Benech to turn the space into a labyrinth-meets-white-box-gallery and help curate the selection of objects. Walking through the double-height doors, one is only confronted with a bulbous bronze apple and 10-foot-tall mirror, both by Claude. "He’s broken up the entire gallery space to make it feel intimate, so he’s divided it into alleyways with a forced perspective," explains Dicconson. "So when you enter the show, you see an apple and a mirror on the far wall…the rest you have to discover behind the walls he’s built." Behind each wall exists a small vignette with themed objects, from Claude's crocodile furniture to François-Xavier's myriad primates (including a standout babouin—a functional fireplace in the belly of a cast iron baboon).

Looking at Theodora Allen’s delicate, muted watercolour and oil-on-linen paintings that are filled with mystical symbology, psychotropic plants, full moons and other various celestial bodies is like falling into a Pre-Raphaelite-tinged hippie fever dream. The 33-year-old Los Angeles-based artist toes the line between transcendental and twee in her debut solo show in New York at Kasmin Gallery (until 9 March) with a slew of new paintings featuring ancient symbols, tarot tropes and floral imagery that are part surreal, part kitsch. While some of her previous paintings have smacked of a Stevie Nicks album cover—particularly one of guitar ringed by a floral wreath—her newest works at Kasmin are spellbindingly sincere in their quest for meaning through beauty.

The collaboration has resulted in a new series of 12 photographs and two new films that lift the curtain on the fashion show.

The Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan is still Art Gallery Central, its origins dating at least to the 1990s, when low-rise warehouses and reasonable rents began luring these venues from SoHo. As with SoHo’s fate—by which escalating real-estate prices brought high-end retail shops and condos and shooed away galleries and artists’ lofts—the overwhelming popularity of the High Line along the west edge of Chelsea and the rapid construction of luxury residential towers could again demonstrate that economic gains come with cultural losses. But, for now, the mix is lively, even if many galleries are counting on the largesse of landlords.

Cork is Making a Comeback, Thanks to Jasper Morrison

Leave it to the endlessly talented Jasper Morrison to breathe new life into this ’70s staple, which has recently come back on the design world’s radar in a big way. While he’s dabbled in cork before (who didn’t love his stools for Vitra or the super cool hut he designed for Muji in Tokyo?), this collection marks the first time Morrison has used it exclusively.

The limited edition line, now on exhibition at the Kasmin Gallery until June 29th, boasts a variety of beautiful pieces, from a chaise lounge (his and my personal favorite) and ottoman to tables and shelving. And they’re all amazingly constructed from leftover wine stopper material.
