RHIZOME: NEW GROWTH AT CAVIN-MORRIS GALLERY September 10 - October 10, 2015
Cavin-Morris Gallery is pleased to welcome and highlight some new work and a particularly rich group of new artists to the gallery in our Fall 2015 opening exhibition called Rhizome: New Growth at Cavin-Morris Gallery. The artists in this exhibition further expand our international Western and non-Western roster.
Some of the self-taught artists showing first time with us are Zinnia Nishikawa from California, Ilya Natarevich from St. Petersburg, Russia, Guyodo from Port au Prince, Haiti, Caroline Demangel from France, and Paul Kai Shroder and Anna Scheffler-Rehse from Germany. We will be showing new or previously unseen works by trained and untrained artists, Kriangkrai Konghanum from Bangkok, Thailand, Cuban born Jose Bedia, Peruvian born Kukuli Velarde, Angolan born Franck Lundangi, USA artist Norbert Kox, Lubos Plny and Pavel Havlicek from Czech Republic, Noviadi Angkasapura from Indonesia, JB Murray from Georgia, USA, Gregory Van Maanen and Kevin Sampson from New Jersey and Nishiyama Tomohiro from Japan.
What weaves it all together is a sense of storytelling in a myriad of languages that become translated visually into universal forms. Each artist takes an integral essence of his or her culture, usually mythical or visionary, and abstracts it into timeless contemporary forms. We as viewers are given the privilege of appreciating the work on its deep formal values alone or by understanding the complex sources of its cultural conversations. If we give it our full attention the roots expand ever outwards and we grow with it as well.
