Under the Influence (of the New York School)

January Abstraction_D

A new exhibit opens this weekend at Carrie Haddad Gallery:

Under the Influence (of the New York School)
Lionel Gilbert, Judith Lindbloom and William Bond Walker
Reception: Saturday, April 26th, 6-8pm
April 19, 2014 through June 1, 2014
at Carrie Haddad Gallery
622 Warren Street, Hudson NY

When one thinks of the New York School the mind is instantly transported to New York City during the 1950’s and 60’s when it became a melting pot of visionary artists, writers, jazz musicians, and dancers. The individuals of this avant-garde circle drew their inspiration from Surrealism and the artists, in particular, were captivated by its philosophy of subconscious liberation. Out of this fascination, Abstract Expressionism was born. Canvases became dominated by highly abstracted forms, bold palettes, and intense gestural displays of human emotion where the finished piece was not just an image but rather a record testifying to the moment an artist’s brush met its surface.

Untitled II_D In the mid-fifties, Judith Lindbloom left the Midwest for New York City to settle in Greenwich Village. Her work was clearly influenced by that of her close friend, Franz Kline. By the time Lindbloom was 23, her work had appeared in the Whitney Museum’s Under 35 exhibit of young American painters. After a stint of travel in Europe, Lindbloom settled in San Francisco where she continues to live today. This exhibit will feature work from her NYC era, as well as paintings from the 80s and 90s that reflect a brighter, more expressionistic palette.

Artist William Bond Walker describes each of his paintings as a “new beginning”, allowing for intuitive development rather than relying on a preconceived plan. This element of abstraction creeps into his representational work as well. Bond Walker finds the power of color and its ability to shape a piece most important, hence his use of acrylic-- a medium he favors for its flexible and adaptable features.
Blue on the Side d jpg Lionel Gilbert received his formal training at the Newark School of Fine & Industrial Art in 1924 and L’Academie de la Grande Chaumier in France. Gilbert painted large murals in public buildings while employed through the nation’s W.P.A program. During WWII, he completed many illustrations while working as an official U.S. Air Force artist to portray life at war. Gilbert later became a full time artist showing in various galleries while teaching at the 92nd Street Y Art Center through the 1980’s. This exhibit will include his abstract figurative paintings. Reminiscent of Hans Hoffman, Gilbert replaces rapid brushstrokes for blocks of color that are oftentimes organized around semi-automatist forms.
