Contemporary Art: A Gallery Walk In Chelsea, June 2016

(Drivebycuriosity) - I like to visit the art galleries in New York`s classy Chelsea district. There is a cluster of top-art dealers who often have amazing shows. Recently I posted about some awesome exhibitions: Richard Serra @ Gagosian  (here), Sigmar Polke @ David Zwirner ( here), Anish Kapoor @ Gladstone (here) & Nicole Eisenman @ Anton Kern (here).

But there was much more to discover. The gallery Stricoff Fine Art had some fine photorealist paintings ( stricoff). Above "Trocadero" by Debra Goertz (Oil on wood, 30 x 40 inches) followed by "Montreal" (Oil on Canvas, 30 x 40 inches) & "Red Bag" (Oil on Canvas, 30 x 40 inches).

The press release explains that Goertz "is primarily fascinated with exploring possible relationships between cinema and painting". "Each painting taken by itself is an attempt to reconcile the stillness of a “frozen moment” with the feeling of some passage of time".

I also enjoyed the surrealist work by Ryan Reynolds also @ Stricoff. Above this paragraph you can see "Entrance" (oil on panel, 40 x 30 inches) followed by "Looking Out" (oil on panel, 40 x 30 inches); "Liminal" (Oil on panel, 48 x 36 inches) & "Alviso" (oil on panel, 30 x 45 inches).

Catherine Makey`s "Doors on the Bay" (mixed media on panel, 48 x 60 inches) fill well into this esemble.

Fredericks & Freiser showed portraits of imaginary women by Jocelyn Hobbie (oil on canvas fredericks ).

Unix Gallery displayed work by Los Angeles–based artist Desire Obtain Cherish  ( unix).
