Through January 31, 2021
Carrie Haddad Gallery is pleased to present “Place as Memory”, a group exhibit exploring the interpretation of landscape through memory. As place is reinterpreted by the mind, details are altered, and characteristics become imbued with an artist’s personal style or emotional outlook. Featured artists, Richard Britell, Sue Bryan, Shawn Dulaney, Susan Hope Fogel, Eric Lindbloom, Ricardo Mulero, Linda Newman Boughton and Leigh Palmer highlight this process with ethereal landscapes, abstracted by the mind’s eye as if from a distant memory. The show will be on view December 1 – January 31. We are unable to host an opening reception at this time, but we are open to the public with easy protocols in place to keep you safe during your visit!
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, the gallery will feature a selection of paintings on Venetian plaster by Shawn Dulaney. Part of what we find so alluring about her compositions, painted with a signature handmade acrylic paint, is their ability to activate both a cognitive and emotional experience using color, texture, and scale. Softly whipped, cloud-like billows of translucent color explode in a voluminous expanse, referencing a marvel that could only be felt in nature; an early morning sunrise, the incoming tide, a sudden change in barometric pressure. Each work immerses you in a time and place that is at once familiar and mystical. Doug McClemont of ARTnews Magazine writes that Dulaney’s paintings “concern the earth, and the unyielding hand of nature.” Also featured are select monoprints that celebrate Dulaney’s luscious color stories on a smaller scale. A working artist for over four decades, Dulaney’s paintings have been exhibited widely and can be found in extensive public and private collections including the Hunterdon Museum of Art in New Jersey. Her work has been reviewed in ArtNews, and The New York Times, and featured in Parabola Magazine and New American Paintings.
Ricardo Mulero was born in Puerto Rico and went on to live in Manhattan & Fire Island before moving to Hudson, NY. Growing up in the Caribbean, he witnessed how people and nature could exist in harmony, a principle which reveals itself in his contemporary cityscapes and landscapes.
