This event has ended.

Denise Bibro Fine Art in Chelsea opens its Fall Season with a selected consortium of fresh talent chosen from our recent Art From the Boros III exhibition. In Gallery I, we have a solo exhibition of Brooklyn artist Whitney Wood Bailey and in Gallery II a solo exhibition of Brooklyn artist Linda Kamille Schmidt. In our Platform Gallery we have a solo exhibition of Manhattan artist Jessica Maffia and throughout all three galleries we are soloing Brooklyn sculptor London Tsai. Each emerging artist has developed cohesive bodies of work using different mediums. Each body of work is well crafted and conveys the distinct voice of their respective creator.

Gallery I

WHITNEY WOOD BAILEY: Bailey’s lush canvases composed of intricate organic forms inspired by the metaphysicality of nature, imply that the design and orchestration of nature effect our consciousness. Her organic shapes are assimilated with her predetermined markings. The ‘ticking marks’ in her paintings are inspired, in part, by ancient art caves in France. These deliberate markings and the natural spontaneity of her process bring forward wondrous canvases that suggest “the idea of an intersection of faith, reason, instinct and intellect.”

Gallery II

LINDA KAMILLE SCHMIDT: Schmidt’s works are prompted by a series of subconscious gestural elements. In contrast, the final result is tightly conceived and crafted. She is inspired by the vast range of shapes in the universe from cellular to cosmic. Simple, elegant geometric shapes serve as characters or markers in her work. The subconscious interacts with geometric lines and shapes and may transform into games, systems of measurement or other organizational devices. Her works suggest exploration, invention and sometimes entertainment. The work sometimes suggests being a catalyst for ideas and solutions to various problems. Schmidt is looking and searching for metaphor and meaning within the formal structure of the inherent in her work.

Platform Space

JESSICA MAFFIA: Maffia’s works are inspired by the rich mark making of decay, residues and cracks on aging surfaces that she finds around her and in her travels. She considers these unintentional found art. She sees beauty in their forms, color or lack of. Her works are tightly rendered wall markings in pencil on paper. Although the works appear obsessive, they yield haunting, exquisite worlds that compel her and the viewer. She savors the process of looking at things closely to uncover the splendors in the ordinary and the insignificant.

Gallery I,II, and Platform Space

LONDON TSAI: Tsai’s work is primarily made of aluminum steel. His practice is mostly concerned with the nature of surface and the interaction of various surfaces on one form or a combination of forms. Employing hand tools, he likes to impart different shapes to flat pieces of aluminum. He is inspired by industrial machines to form planish, wield, cut, and weld to form a surface. He is intrigued by the concept of moving the two-dimensional into the three-dimensional to unveil surfaces that underline the structure, presenting a hybrid nature of architecture. Tsai’s process is slow and painstaking and proceeds panel by panel. Fine craftsmanship is vital to bringing these conceived objects into fruition.
