Seattle Art Fair

C24 Gallery is pleased to present Nilbar Güreş, Tommy Hartung, Dil Hildebrand, Katja Loher, Seçkin Pirim, İrfan Önürmen, Regina Scully, Brian Tolle and Christian Vincent at this year’s edition of the Seattle Art Fair.

The Seattle Art Fair features the best in modern and contemporary art for the Pacific Northwest community. Artwork from galleries, museums and institutions around the world all are brought together in the beautiful, cultured city of Seattle. Founded in 2015 by Paul G. Allen, the Seattle Art Fair is produced by Vulcan Inc. and Art Market Productions.

Nilbar Güreş (Veinna, Austria /Istanbul, Turkey) utilizes a performative approach to explpre the notions of gender, identity, culture and oppression through the use of photography, collage, drawing, painting and video. Based on long-term research and cultural observation, Güreş creates staged theatrical narratives that are often humorous in their examination of relationship, and representation, with strong critical/political undertones.

Tommy Hartung employs photography, sculpture and video, to address topics such as the Bible and the history of colonialism—with a surrealist DIY aesthetic, through stream of consciousness storytelling. The imagery he creates mirrors a globalized world steeped in obsession, violence and sympathetic magic. His use of multiple media, addresses the themes of modernism, and forms hybrids of classical characters and nuanced allegory.

Dil Hildebrand's work centers on the architectural and constructed image. Often working in large format, his paintings mimic the scale and structure of architecture, framing the body in life-sized patterns. Inspired by ancient Roman trompe l'oeil frescoes and informed by a diversity of other influences and interests, Hildebrand's paintings explore this shared lineage of architectural formation with painted images.

Katja Loher (New York, NY) Originally from Zurich, Switzerland, Katja Loher is a leader among the next generation of video artists. Loher deconstructs the traditional video formats, liberating fantastical environments from the rectangular constraints allowing them to live beyond the canons of bulky technology. Videos embedded in sculpture invite the viewer to enter whimsical “miniverses” which are entirely scripted, choreographed and filmed by Loher. Her original “video alphabet” engages its audience by asking questions addressing ecological urgencies.

Irfan Önürmen’s (Istanbul, Turkey) work reveals the relationships and discrepancies between personal and public experience as seen through the lens of contemporary media. The artist addresses the impact of mass media on human experience and its visual representation through collage, painting, and sculpture. With a unique aesthetic approach comprised of layering tulle and textile materials, Önürmen creates a mysterious tone in each work that explores the concepts of vulnerability, transparency, fragmentation and depth, in the pursuit of harmony and dissonance.

Seçkin Pirim (Istanbul, Turkey) builds conceptual sculptures that explore form, color, and pattern. Working in a variety of media, his artworks examine the relationship between object and space, the dichotomy between nature and culture, and the line between art and design. His sculptures are neo-minimalist forms of expression as well as contemporary strategies of art and design that create an aesthetic which neglects social connotation.

Regina Scully (New Orleans, LA) creates micro-universes that resonate between the familiar and the unknown. Her mindscapes incorporate different perspectives of space, and suggestive fragments of objects and phenomena. Her paintings and works on paper become personalized dreamscapes for the viewer, with enveloping, rhythmic labyrinths to enter and travel through, wherein the viewer experiences thoughts and visions through association and memory.

Christian Vincent (Santa Monica, CA) creates dream-like paintings that explore the dynamics of conformity and desire in social situations within the framework of a post-industrial world. His strong compositions feel melancholic and evoke a sense of isolation. The subjects are often youthful figures on the verge of adulthood that capture a sense of innocence confronted with the compromises of modern life.

C24 Gallery was established in 2011 in Chelsea, New York, and is committed to showcasing contemporary art with an emphasis on a plural program exhibiting established artists. C24 Gallery artists regularly participate in museum exhibitions and biennials and are included in leading institutional collections worldwide.

In addition to an ambitious exhibition program, which includes collaborations with renowned curators, C24 Gallery regularly hosts artist talks and lectures, and produces catalogues and artist books. Each year the gallery participates in major art fairs all around the world.

ART ON PAPER 2018

C24 Gallery is pleased to present Nilbar Güreş, Seçkin Pirim and Regina Scully at Art on Paper, 2018. 

Utilizing a performative approach, Austrian/Turkish artist Nilbar Güreş explores the notions of gender, identity, culture and oppression through the use of photography, collage, drawing, painting and video. Based on long-term research and cultural observation, she creates staged theatrical narratives that are often humorous in their examination of relationship, and representation, with strong critical/political undertones.

Working in a variety of media, Turkish artist Seçkin Pirim's artworks examine the relationship between object and space, the dichotomy between nature and culture, and the line between art and design. His works are neo - minimalist forms of expression as well as contemporary strategies of art and design.  They create an aesthetic that neglects social connotation and is able to form a post-futurist, post-constructivist and post-minimal vision of our world.

New Orleans-based painter, Regina Scully, creates micro-universes that resonate between the familiar and the unknown. Her Mindscapes incorporate different perspectives of space, and suggestive fragments of objects and phenomena. Her paintings and works on paper become personalized dreamscapes for the viewer, with enveloping, rhythmic labyrinths to enter and travel through, wherein the viewer experiences thoughts and visions through association and memory.

VOLTA NY 2018
Mar
7
to Mar 11

VOLTA NY 2018

C24 Gallery is pleased to present Tommy Hartung at Volta NY 2018. On view will be: R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), a series of new, interactive video installations based on Karel Kapek's 1920 science fiction play in which the term "robot" was first used. The play explores the speed of technological progress and the uncertainties and dehumanization that occurs as a result of  the robotization of human interactions. In Hartung's adaptation, the original play is re-written through photographs, costumes and interactive videos that pose the question: Why do men want to create robots that look human?

Tommy Hartung’s works analyze the creation and dissemination of cultural narratives by fragmenting and deconstructing his source material. Through the montages of stop motion animation and found footage, Hartung uses the themes of modernism as his subject matter.  His sculptures, the subjects of his videos, are assembled through scavenged material to form hybrids of classical characters and nuanced allegory. His work addresses colonial expansion, exploration, evolution, conquest, and innovation.

VOLTA NY is a contemporary art fair comprised of solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show, VOLTA NY has since its 2008 debut operated as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week.

Art Miami 2017
Dec

to Dec 10

Art Miami 2017

 C24 Gallery is pleased to present the works of Ernesto Caivano, Mike Dargas, Carole Feuerman, Nick Gentry, Dil Hildebrand, Katja Loher, Irfan Önürmen, Seçkin Pirim, Regina Scully, Brian Tolle and Christian Vincent at the 28th edition of Art Miami 2017. Art Miami is an international contemporary and modern art fair that takes place each December during art week at the newly opened Miami Herald Plaza. Art Miami will take place December 5 - December 10th from 11am - 8pm, daily. 

Ernesto CaivanoErnesto Caivano’s meticulously detailed ink drawings depict an ambitious narrative based on lovers’ courtship, separation, retribution and eventual evolution. Varying in format and scale from scroll-like panoramas to small detailed studies, Caivano’s drawing portray a timeless tale of Polygon and Versus, who were torn apart upon the consummation of their union and transported into the woods, signifying an alternate reality and universe. 

Mike Dargas Inspired by Dali, Caravaggio and HR Giga, Dargas explores themes of reality and the surreal in his hyperrealistic oil paintings and charcoal drawings. His quest for perfection results in works that read like photographs, snapshots of mental states. His subjects appear conflicted, lost in thought, or even sublimely calm. Dargas challenges both himself and the viewer to take a deeper look at  the subject, in order to question human nature and emotional perception. 

Carole Feuerman’s is recognized as a pioneering figure in the world of hyperrealist sculpture. Her sculptures create visual manifestations of the stories she wants to tell of strength, survival, balance.  By combining conventional sculptural materials of steel, bronze, and resin, with more unconventional media like water, sound, and video, she creates hybrid works of intricate energy and psychology. 

Nick Gentry uses obsolete technologies like 35mm film negatives, VHS cassettes, X-ray prints, and floppy discs, to create his unique portraits. His work comments on the rapidity and scope of contemporary technological shifts. These materials, sourced directly from individuals all over the world, come together—in one form—to suggest a compound of shared experiences. 

Dil Hildebrand's work focuses on spatial concepts of design, the construction of image, and the mechanics of representation in art. His work is informed and influenced by a diversity of references and methods, including modernist strategies of fragmentation and re-composition, pictorial tropes of Western art and theatre, and post – modernist architecture. Layered panels follow a consistent color palette throughout the work, playing with distortion, and depth of field. 

 Katja Loher's video sculptures are explorations into the delicate relationship we have with our ecological environment. She creates idealized, artificial worlds that sit in harmony with our own, often unpleasant, reality, urging the viewer to consider the ecological concerns of our time.  Loher’s carefully choreographed videos are encased and mounted to the wall, allowing visitors an intimate experience as they peer into the the glass orbs, and into Loher's imaginative worlds.

Irfan Önürmen's artwork reveals the relationship between personal and public experience as seen through the lens of contemporary media. Önürmen addresses the impact of mass media on human experience and its visual representation of contemporary media. Önürmen addresses the impact of mass media on human experience and its visual representation through collage, painting and sculpture. 

Seçkin Pirim explores form, color, and pattern in his conceptual sculptures. Working in a variety of media, his artwork  examines the relationship between object and space, the dichotomy between nature and culture, and the line between art and design. His sculptures are neo-minimalist forms of expression as well as contemporary strategies of art and design.

Christian Vincent explores the dynamics of conformity and desire in social situations within the framework of a post-industrial world in his dream-like paintings. His strong compositions feel melancholic and evoke a sense of isolation. The subjects are often youthful figures on the verge of adulthood, that capture a sense of innocence confronted with the compromises of modern life.
