Folk Devil

Folk Devil brings together a diverse group of international artists.

Borderlands Crossed”  by CJ Collins

CJ Collins

The tension between form and line has been a subconscious American pre-occupation from our earliest days.  C J Collins’ vibrant work dances on the edge of the precarious moment where line and mass are reconciled.  Her intuitive moves, running in layers which snuggle and snag each other, form less a dance than a ritualistic walkabout of discovery. Big scale is evident no matter the dimension.   Never claustrophobic, they breathe with the freedom of the open sky, the riff of a jukebox tune and the vast distance of possibility.  It is a freedom which implies not Nature, but the mind’s conjectured landscape. Collins’ powerful results are squeezed from a deceptively straightforward process.  Drawing from life in freely calligraphed moves, the sketches are then xeroxed onto acetate transparencies.  She layers and positions one atop the other until she discovers what she wants.  Picasso called it making a find.  The artist uses a dominant buzz color, electronic in intensity, on which she intervenes an intuitive graphic activity.  These compounded arrangements interact with her color solids.  Even her blacks read as full palette!  Lines race across the layered field of tangled automatic writing and the two, calligraphed and color block, form a teasing argument between hand and LCD screen glow in an otherwise formalist set up. Their humor, their reach and their insistence on gaze make them stretch-your-arms-wide works.  The effect is surprising for its power and attitude. It is unrepentant, fully charged and with a take-it-or-leave-it confidence by the hand of an artist fully committed to her own path.Catherine Redmond, New York, NY

Black: Fragrance of the Universe” by Uko Morita
Uko Morita 1 Uko Morita 2

The exhibition will show his ceramic sculptures using materials in natural color and his black color.
The colors work together creating a refined, elegant works with dignified atmosphere.

Uko Morita:

I am Leaving this City” by I-Hsuen Chen

The exhibition will take the form of a rich sampling of several bodies of recent photographic work, manifesting Chen’s experience of  omnipresent middleness between time and place. “CHEN, under the spell of the classic road-trip photographers Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, and Joel Stern- feld, idylls through Taiwan, but instead of finding the drama of Frank’s diverse demographics, or the wonder of  Sternfeld’s American anecdotes, he discovers a society in a state of suspension. Time seems to have stopped for this island culture, and Chen focuses on the inadvertent poise of routine and the everyday.” -Allen Frame,

Opening Reception: Thursday July 11, 2013 From 6pm to 8pm


Paul Kolker Gallery

511 West 25th street

Standards and Horizons

Paul Kolker is pleased to present Standards and Horizons, an exhibition of light sculptures and paintings opening on July 11, 2013 at the artist’s Chelsea gallery. Kolker creates new works and curates this exhibition to serve as an experiment in the perception of imaginary spaces of vertical and horizontal intersecting planes. His general body of work is distinguished through the synthesis of his unique art production processes, the variety of media he uses, including reflected light, and his accomplished curatorial skills in having thus far put together thirty-nine of his own solo shows, including this one.

    A lot of fun. Fun, interesting people. And to top it off, an up-close "celebrity" sighting outside of Spain on 13th... Todd, did you arrange that?

    I'm glad I went to the hop. I saw shows that I probably would have missed otherwise. I was really taken with the last show we saw----Cameron Gray at Mike Weiss gallery. He is a fairly established artist and the others, by and large, aren't; so it isn't surprising his show is more impressive. But, I do think it is interesting to see what artists who are just beginning their careers are doing too. The only thing I regret about the evening is that we didn't make it to the hpgrp Gallery; the description of I-Hseun Chen's photographs piqued my interest.

    Organized chaos in swirl painting like style meetup. A freaky afternoon of art that ended in a weird oddball nonevent related irrelevant and weirdest coincidence that happened to me in my time living in NYC. Don't ask. :-p
