This month features Meghan Niittynen, one of the premiere drawers in Northwestern Ontario in her first solo exhibition in gallery 3.
Niittynen depicts in her photo-realistic coloured pencil drawings, a record of events culminating towards a completed image/icon portraiture of individuals within the music subcultures of Metal and Rock. An important aspect is the subliminal element of visible tattoos in her portraiture, a mirror of our times capturing the zeitgeist of rock and culture today.

45 BIS - ROUEN

Le Collectif DOP est heureux de vous présenter sa dernière création Folklore II visible à Rouen jusqu'au 18 septembre.

Installation "45 bis" - Galerie MAM
du 4 au 18 septembre 2009

Visible de l'extérieur tous les jours.

Le Collectif DOP, créé en 2005, réunit deux artistes issus de l’Ecole des Beaux Arts de Rouen. Le Collectif DOP est particulièrement attaché à l’exploration des lieux communs, ce fond courant d’idées à la disposition de tous. Jouant de leur valeur admise et persuasive, il opère détournements et décalages pour revitaliser, en se les appropriant, ces références adoptées par le plus grand nombre.

Le Collectif DOP poursuit actuellement son nouveau projet intitulé Folklore, portant sur les codes architecturaux des façades. Eléments représentatifs immédiatement identifiables, elles ont été et sont encore au cœur d’enjeux ayant trait à l’identité patrimoniale dans de multiples contextes comme les pavillons nationaux des expositions universelles ou de la Biennale de Venise, comme la Main Street idéalisée par Walt Disney dans ses parcs à thèmes ou comme, plus récemment, la pratique urbanistique du façadisme.

Au sein du quartier des antiquaires de la ville de Rouen, la Galerie MAM est le second support sur lequel le Collectif DOP vient rejouer cette question identitaire. Pour cette nouvelle pièce, il transforme la façade de la galerie, le temps de sa fermeture, en un tombeau nabatéen à l'échelle 1/7.

A FACE ON MARS - NEW YORK

Virginia Martinsen
Opening Thursday September 10th 6-8pm

September 10 – October 17, 2009

ATM Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo show of 28 year old, UCLA graduate, Virginia Martinsen. The title of this exhibition of paintings, A Face on Mars, reveals Martinsen’s fascination with the human need for companionship and search for a higher power. The fact that people find images of Jesus Christ on the side of a tree, on a piece of cloth or even a piece of toast alludes to the concept that people find references to human figures or images identifiable by our society in almost anything, and whether consciously or not we are searching for them.

Virginia’s paintings are created by pouring liquid paint and dry pigments onto canvases that are positioned flat on the floor. The paint is then left to settle onto the canvas, sometimes creating large pools of paint, and with no further manipulation they take on their own form. The resulting formations are the product of gravity on the canvas, which is forced to stretch accommodating the weight of the paint. As the paint travels over the surface of the canvas the pigments and oil separate from the varnish and mediums, streaks and clumps of paint are created, both solidifying and evaporating. Eventually, dried out circular forms, by-products of the painting process, become centers of some of the paintings.

Her painting process is informed by her many visits with Austrian Actionist Hermann Nitsch at his castle in Prinzendorf, Austria, where she was inspired by Nitsch’s concept of a pour or splatter of paint referencing a stab with a knife, or an extensive experience of existence.

Martinsen’s title “A Face on Mars” refers to the images brought back from Viking 1 taken in 1976, revealing an image that appeared to be a humanoid face on the surface of Mars. People believed that this was an indication of alien life; however latter pictures revealed that the original image of the face was simply the result of shadows and camera angle. Our reaction to those images reveals our desire to know that we are not alone and also to identify something familiar in the unknown. Martinsen’s abstract paintings are based on her fascination with the human need to identify with or find a familiarity in the unknown.

Virginia Martinsen lives and works in New York.
