Seattle Art Fair


C24 Gallery is pleased to present Carole Feuerman, Nick Gentry, Dil Hildebrand, Katja Loher, Irfan Önürmen, Seçkin Pirim, Regina Scully, 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.

Carole Feuerman (New York, NY) works in both monumental and life size sculpture. Feuerman pioneered new approaches to sculpture with painted bronze pieces for the outdoors and in water, and is best known for her hyper-realistic sculptures of swimmers. Her works explore classicism while presenting emotions of joy, grace, tranquility and sensuality.

Nick Gentry (London, England) Utilizing recycled, obsolete media and tech materials as the grounds for his paintings, Nick Gentry’s artwork creates a conversation between the rapid changes and destruction in the environment as a product of human consumption and environmental neglect. With materials sourced directly from members of the public, the conceptual basis of his work explores the areas where reality meets illusion, while drawing on references from consumer waste, to pop culture and found art.

Dil Hildebrand (Montreal, QC) currently has work on display at C24 Gallery in his exhibit, Lorem Ipsum. 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 New York in 2011, and is committed to showing groundbreaking contemporary art. The gallery provides a platform for artists who have achieved critical acclaim in diverse locales. C24 Gallery represents artists working in all formats and media and remains dedicated to a geographically diverse program. That program has included the first solo exhibitions in New York of renowned artists such as Katja Loher, İrfan Önürmen, Regina Scully, Robert Montgomery and Ali Kazma, and thematic group shows organized by prominent curators such as Clarissa Dalrymple, Dan Cameron, Amy Smith-Stewart and Peter Frank. C24 Gallery was listed in Modern Painters’ "500 Best Galleries Worldwide" and "100 Best Fall Shows" and its exhibitions have been reviewed in publications such as Artforum,  The Art Newspaper, The Village Voice, Modern Painters, NY Arts and Hyperallergic.
