Rime Untitled
Rime | Code

Press Release Artist RIME: CODE April 5 – May 6, 2018 532 Gallery is pleased to announce CODE, an exhibition of new paintings by RIME.   RIME’s studio work has frequently stripped out, isolated, reworked, and repositioned component features of his most elaborate graffiti pieces.  His large bodily gestures of swooping letter serifs become expertly painted in studio, not street, media.  The cartoon heraldic b-boys, mugs, and pinups guide the eye or float in giant fight… Read more

Gustavo Acosta: “Inventory of Omissions”

  September 7 – October 14, 2017 The paintings in Gustavo Acosta’s “Inventory of Omissions” may initially seem like discrete chapters in a visual essay on the oppressive bleakness of the modern city, but such a reading misses the point of his static but intensely hued portrayals of sites in Havana, Miami, New York, and Aleppo. A closer and more thoughtful observation of these canvases reveals the artist’s focus on drawing our attention to the… Read more

LAST PICTURE SHOW

May 11 – June 29, 2017 Chris Ofili, Danny Rolph, Diana Copperwhite,  Elio Rodriguez, Mary Heilmann,  Jill Levine, Rebecca Smith, Vanessa Jackson there is no harm in repeating a good thing -Plato An exhibition of work which posits the idea that creativity exists in not knowing, maybe the answer is “I can’t go on, I’ll go on”.  Risk is imperative, but we still know very little about the potential of what works and why.  The pendulum has… Read more

Piers Secunda: ISIS Bullet Holes Paintings

Piers Secunda ISIS Bullet Holes Paintings April 6 – May 6, 2017 There is a horror and a fascination in something as apparently permanent as a building, something that one expects to last many a human span, meeting an untimely end. — Robert Bevan, The Destruction of Memory: Architecture at War All the shot works originate from the idea that the most valuable thing an artist can do is to record the world around them.… Read more

The Weight of Words: Golden Irony

Jose Angel Vincench “The Weight of Words: Golden Irony” March 9 – April 1, 2017 My abstraction starts with testimony of the violent actions on the dissidents, but more than a political statement I prefer to talk about the silence in the civil society and art. The artworks absorb the cynicism of this society, they are ironically based on the human drama found in images and words. – José Vincench As an artist who lives,… Read more

Depend on the Morning Sun

  Diana Copperwhite Through January 28, 2017 Depend on the Morning Sun The exhibition effectively extends the continuum of abstractions in color that have engaged the artist in recent years.  Fusing schematic shapes and fragments, her apparent abstractions recall a flash of connections through time, or maybe a glimpse of switching of identities, or the way an interior, or an external, space may be seen via moving digitized images.  We are drawn by the vivid… Read more

Susana Guerrero: Anatomy of a Myth

    Susana Guerrero: Anatomy of a Myth September 15 – October 22, 2016   We are pleased to present Susana Guerrero’s first US solo exhibition, Anatomy of a Myth in New York.

Bernard Ammerer “Interface”

Bernard Ammerer Interface May 19 – June 30, 2016 532 Gallery is pleased to present Austrian artist, Bernard Ammerer. A woman races from nowhere to nowhere through an indistinctly rendered forest. A loose scattering of young men hovers in a strange white space, suspended in time. Solitary wanderers traverse barren plains toward destinations that loom invitingly in the distance, yet fade into disheartening insubstantiality upon arrival. At every turn, there is the sense of something… Read more

DANNY ROLPH RECOLLECTION October 1 – November 25, 2015 For his first solo show at 532 gallery Danny Rolph presents a new body of work made over the last year. The visual impact of Rolph’s works engages the viewer’s senses in a delicious ferment. The high velocity color and fractured narratives explored in these recent paintings show an uncompromising commitment to explore the compositional potential on all the canvases and triplewall plastic that he works… Read more

Broken Verse

Darrell Nettles Broken Verse June 4 – July 3, 2015 The paintings by Darrell Nettles in Broken Verse are ergodic in the deepest and most satisfying sense of the word: although they require a great deal of effort to unlock their secrets, the engagement they demand makes an encounter with them a rich and rewarding experience. Nettles’ linguistic impressionism employs the gravid ambiguity of language to reveal its deeper treasures; his visual meditations on the… Read more

Tomorrow-land

New Paintings by Julie Langsam April 30 – May 30  2015 In her newest exhibition Tomorrow-land,  Julie Langsam presents structures built specifically for mid-20th century World’s Fair exhibitions: Philips Pavilion designed by Le Corbusier and Iannis Xenakis, the Tent of Tomorrow & Observation Towers by Philip Johnson and Habitat by Moshe Safdie.

IN NEW YORK

John A. Parks New York Paintings March 26 – 6 pm through April 25, 2015 Once again it is a great pleasure to exhibit new paintings by John Alexander Parks and most especially because he has recently been making paintings about New York, his adopted home for more than three decades.  For much of this time Parks has painted subjects that bear on English life using his vantage point as a British exile. Those pictures are often… Read more

IRA RICHER LIFE SIGNS  January 17 – February 14, 2015 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel presents an exhibition of work by Ira Richer. Including recent paintings and earlier works in Formica that were shown at Nosei Gallery. When describing the work Anthony Haden-Guest writes: These pieces combine deft materiality and wit. As with the hammer, the magnet, the exclamation point, the scribbled title in “Gulf”. So too the paintings. Richer’s palette inclines to early summer and… Read more

Shadowland

Diana Copperwhite November 13 – January 10, 2015 When describing Diana Copperwhite’s work Colm Toibin wrote: “Her work is about painting first and foremost; [these] references merely serve a purpose.  Thus digital images which freeze and fragment an original image fascinate her, but such images in themselves are not enough, they provide a way into the painting.  It is their visuality which inspires rather than any precise sense of a blurred or fragmented reality.   Because… Read more

Twisted Figures

Untitled (Golden Yellow) Acrylic on canvas, 72 x 60 inches Ian Hughes October 9 – November 8, 2014 Over the arc of his career, Ian Hughes has honed a distinctive visual language in which paint reveals its lushest and most viscous qualities while simultaneously giving shape to bio-reminiscent forms that have a compelling life of their own. In Twisted Figures, his third solo show at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel, Hughes’s latest series of acrylic paintings… Read more

Imaginary Places

September 4 – October 4, 2014   532 Gallery is pleased to present new works by Marie-Dolma Chophel and Lennart Rieder.

New paintings after the long Winter

Armando Marino May 8 – June 27, 2014 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to announce the second solo exhibition by contemporary Cuban artist Armando Mariño. Composing a whimsical wintry mash up of abstract and figurative art to provide us all a rather philosophical light on the freedom of art, no matter what eye the perspective is derived from. “A work of art doesn’t have to be explained. If you do not have any feeling about this, I cannot… Read more

meet me in the trees

Tanja Selzer through April 26, 2014 Ticklish motifs await us in Selzer’s current series Meet me in the trees. Following on the heels of Sabotage, No Tears for the Creatures of the Night, Mind Candy and Cadavre Exquis, we find barely dressed and nude figures in the bushes. This is actually a classical motif in art history, and an extensively exhibited sujet with prominent progenitors such as Botticelli and Rubens and Manet and Cézanne and Picasso—and… Read more

Loose Ends

DIANA COPPERWHITE September 10 – October 19, 2013 We are pleased to announce Diana Copperwhite’s first US solo show in collaboration with Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin.  This follows on from her succesful solo presentation at VOLTA NY earlier this year, and her residency at the Josef Albers Foundation in December 2012. “Whose afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue” asked Barnett Newman in the sixties amid the era’s monikers of post-painterly abstraction and colour field painting.… Read more

Between Villages

Gerard Ellis May 30 – July 11, 2013 A painter and draftsman by calling and choice, Gerard Ellis establishes an interesting dichotomy between the practice of painting and social critique. His pictorial work is highly expressive and vigorous for those who directly or indirectly participate in the multiple strata of the contexts of which this artist speaks. The violence, corruption and lack of willpower characteristic of our times are central topics of his meticulous pictorial… Read more

Now(here)

through May 25th Julie Langsam This exhibition features several recent paintings from Langsam’s long-running series of banded montages that set nearly monochromatic, tightly rendered views of iconic modernist buildings on top of a band of gridded abstract motifs inspired by classic modernist paintings and beneath ominously lit skies that invoke Romantic landscape painting.  The skies are, in fact, loose renderings (rather than transcriptions) of skies from Hudson River landscape painting, but they also uncannily recall… Read more

Fusion
Fusion

February 21 – March 30, 2013  Tatjana Busch, “Fusion“ a synthesis of objects with light, sound, color and motion. “It could be like this and it could also be like that…,” says Tatjana Busch. But not until we see her latest works in this exhibition, does her meaning become truly accessible. Conceptually, her earliest works appear even more tightly regulated by the obvious influences of the strict, geometric, coloured forms we know from the Bauhaus… Read more

Paint and Memory

Recent Paintings by John A. Parks through February 16, 2013 In his recent pictures, executed as finger paintings, John Parks explores the memories of his English childhood in a series of richly evocative images. “In a sense I’m using a childish means to recreate a child’s world,” says the artist, “although the resulting paintings are far more sophisticated than those of a child.”  The lush surfaces, gloriously layered color and suggestive drawing work together to… Read more

The Waste Land

  Armando Marino October 11 – November 7 532 Gallery  Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to present the Solo exhibition in New York of Armando Mariño, entitled The Waste Land. This solo show features new oil on canvas paintings and works on paper. The title of the show refers immediately to the T.S Eliot poem, but the paintings that Marino shows are far from an illustration of it. In these paintings the artist recognizes the poem as a background to his work. “It… Read more

NEUE WILDEN WORKS from the 80s

Stefan Szczesny September 13 – October 9, 2012     The exhibit explores the early 80s, when Szczesny emerged as one of the protagonists of a young generation of bold figurative painters in the German-speaking world who came to be known as “Neue Wilde.”  Contact the gallery for more information.       Modernism In The Service Of The Pleasure Principle:  Stefan Szczesny’s Art by Donald Kuspit Boldly self-conscious, and confrontational, in his two Self-Portraits… Read more

This is her first solo exhibition in New York. „I look out on a summer’s day, a beach where we can daydream freely, where we look at the sky and we notice more than we do in everyday life.

Spring – Group Show

Spring has arrived—at last—and with it comes an exciting  group show of gallery artists at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel. The exhibit focuses on what might be, rather than what is, in a Surrealist-inspired showing of paintings, photographs, and sculpture. John Alexander Parks, an English painter, takes us to London in a freely painted street scene that distorts space and makes the viewer wonder where he or she is standing. Nadja Marcin, presents a large-scale photograph… Read more

The Other Side

  Joergen Geerds January 26 – March 3, 2012 Through five panoramic photographs, artist Joergen Geerds explores the interconnections of space and community, humans and habitats, inside and out, self and other. Start anywhere and you’ll quickly slip into Geerds-vision: Central Park is a space for enjoying grass and trees, inviting the warmth of the wilderness into the heart of the city. But the other side of the Park is its persistent emptiness (it is… Read more

The Shadows Of The Fire In My Mind

BIRTHE BLAUTH December 9 – January 21, 2012 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to present  four new works by Birthe Blauth, in her first solo show in the US. Plato likens the restricted nature of human perception and recognition to being in a cave. Humans are trapped, chained down, and see nothing but the shadows of the outside world projected onto the walls of rock by the fire behind them. We are prisoners of our… Read more

Channels

Peggy Bates October 20 – November 26,  2011 Presenting new acrylic paintings on canvas by abstract artist Peggy Bates in an exhibition entitled Channels inspired by the artist’s recent observations of light and color in California’s Channel Islands. Although Bates’ experiences with the landscape and seascape in her frequent travels inspire her work, her oeuvre is not landscape painting per se. They seem to be painted from a different angle than traditional landscapes. Looking at… Read more

Anna Borowy, Tanja Selzer

September 8 – October 15, 2011 Anna Borowy’s motifs are primarily human characters and moments, depicted portrait-style and manifesting particular events. The reduced appliance of outlines and forms connects the figures with the backgrounds and accompanied diaphane images of animals. The apparent youth and grace of the portrayed are distorted by flawed structures and sinister traits. Technically remarkable is the soft, silhouette-like application of color. Though appearing  like water colors, the applied paint is oil-based… Read more

Going Places

Thietmar Bachmann June 28 – July 16, 2011      Summer hours: Tue – Fri 11- 6 pm, or by appointment 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is showing a special Farewell exhibit for a dear friend and artist.

Evanescent Dreams

Kaleidoscope, 29 ft x 7.9 ft (seven panels) Vincenzo Lo Sasso March 25 – April 16, 2011 The work of Vincenzo Lo Sasso is not only the search for a balance between opposing forces but rather, and radically so, the attempt to translate the ancient contrast between solid bodies and liquid presences into images, between that which is unmoving and that which cannot avoid swaying, ever more deeply, even between formalism and informal being. In… Read more

New Works

LES JOYNES Jan 21 – March 12, 2011 This is Joynes’ first exhibition with 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel New York and presents an important new phase in his depiction of imagined sites, heavenly bodies and floating archeo-cognitive elements. In his paintings Les Joynes fuses artifacts of memory he collects from imagined topographies. His current ring paintings are baroque and rococo gateways inspired by Alain Resnais’ 1961 film Last Year at Marienbad. For him the circular… Read more

Recent Works

Guenter Knop November 12 – December 24, 2010 Guenter Knop November 12 – December 23, 2010 Guenter Knop is a remarkable photographer whose love of women shines through in every photograph. Knop’s work represents a highly original combination of rigorous abstraction and lyrical sensuality. The physicist, Heisenberg, proved many years ago that momentum and the placement of particles within the atom are intrinsically interwoven. From this perspective light is now understood as a dynamic dance… Read more

Wom’d

October 2010 Peter Mühlhäusser WOM’D explores the relationship between environment and the development of young individuals within a specific societal context. Employing stereotypical poses related to religion, culture, and social development, the whole series assumes an exaggerated and ironic character. One culture’s physicality cross references another’s societal failure, and familiar conventions of pose and gesture are recognizable, yet challenged by each subject’s cultural physique. History and the contemporary collide. What is usually predictable is presented… Read more

Intuitive Forms

Tatjana Busch “Once upon a time there was square, a circle, a triangle and a rectangle and the passion for color and form”. Tatjana Busch’s words remind us of the Bauhaus. Indeed, the artist has close connections to the German Bauhaus way of thinking as well as to Russian Suprematism and the Dutch De Stijl movement, or neoplasticism. Most of all, her works echo Josef Albers’ famous squares and his studies of the interplay between… Read more

Inside Out

Ian Hughes May 10 – June 7, 2010 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to present INSIDE OUT an exhibition of paintings by Ian Hughes, an outstanding mid-career painter, in his first one-person show in a New York gallery. Hughes’ paintings (here represented by large, medium and small scale works) re-examine and renew the always delicate relationship between color and form. Hughes’ forms are strangely suggestive, but of what exactly: primordial ooze, cell division run… Read more

Diary

Stefan Szczesny March 18 – May 1, 2010 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel presents Diary, an exhibit of mixed media work by Stefan Szczesny, renowned German painter and sculptor. The pieces on display, called “photo-paintings,” combine two related areas of the artist’s creative endeavor. Since 1985, Szczesny has been making images that integrate photos taken in a variety of settings with figure studies rendered in his characteristically expressive style. The result of the juxtaposition of realistic,… Read more

The world is floating

Per Adolfsen February 12 – March 13, 2010 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to present a solo show of works by Danish artist Per Adolfsen. Although the artist’s figurative abstractions may appear crude at first glance, closer examination reveals works vibrating with energy and pulse, creating an all-out assault on the viewer’s concept of reality. In the title work, The World is Floating, images emerge out of nothing and figures float away into a… Read more

Sweet Divide

Vince Contarino January 14 – February 6, 2010 “Sweet Divide” a series of paintings which address the specific challenges faced by abstract artists working today. Describing a finished or successful painting as possessed of a nice awkwardness, differentiating an atypical abstract painting from a great one, conscious of existing within the cultural context of abstraction, which adds to our understanding of emotion, logic, sensation, and concrete reality while at the same time existing at a… Read more

Eyewall

Hendrik Smit November 5 – December 24, 2009 Smit is one of the last true inhabitants in the world of action painting, a place where the process of creating a work receives much more emphasis than the finished product. Reminiscent of the Tachishme style of the 1940s and 1950s Smit’s paintings lack any sort of predetermined structure, but are conceived within the moment. In an indefinable instant, the artist and his emotions become one with… Read more

Human Condition

Charles Mingus III The “Human Condition” is reflective art in real time as a collection of digital prints composed from impulses; that mental stuff zipping around in all our heads like bits of psychological soup or any number of the multitude appropriate metaphors of inside-outside colliding vectors of mass communication and personal communication. These works are printed on paper, and as a result contain some surprises, delivering crackling artifacts of our culture as well as… Read more

Jac Lahav February 12 – March 14, 2009 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to show the new works of Jac Lahav.

Boundless

John Berens, Abshalom Jac Lahav 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel shows two artists who have made a traditional practice of painting into a signature motif. Yet they are not merely making rote, reliable, and commonplace versions. They are working in the periphery of that traditional practice, reaching for achievement beyond recognizable limits, making what is usually considered an acceptable form into something rigorous and subtle. Both artists ask the same questions: what is this form, and… Read more

Incandescent

June 16 – August 15, 2008 Joergen Geerds, Richard Roth and Carol Salmanson All three of these artists deal with architecture and its relationship to anthropomorphism. Buildings may not look like human beings, but they mimic our consciousness in that they project light from within, or have some innate sensory rapport with the immediate natural environment.    Read more

Truth or Consequences

Marcy Brafman May 15 – June 7, 2008 Marcy Brafman’s paintings deal with the dark and light of the cultural landscape and the nature of character. They reflect on the demons and deities of the memory as seen on our devices, online, on television, billboards, boxtops, catechisms, illustrated classic comic books, masterpieces in the Frick, old paperback covers, graffiti and signage on moving vehicles and packaging detritus of every shape and kind. Concern with brand… Read more
