Rachel Gordon Bernstein exhibiting paintings at First Street Gallery, NYC







 

 

BILL CREEVY 

RACHEL GORDON BERNSTEIN 

JANE SHOENFELD

 

View and Vision

 

June 3 - June 21

 

Reception: Thursday, June 5, 6-8 PM 

 

 


 

 

FIRST STREET GALLERY is pleased to present "View and Vision", an exhibition of works by artists

Bill Creevy (oils on paper), Rachel Gordon Bernstein (landscape oils and watercolors), and 

Jane Shoenfeld (colorist landscape abstractions in pastel).   

  

Bill Creevy will show selections from his newest series of miniature oils on paper. Creevy's imagery varies from intimate depictions of animals, to greenmarket finds, to vintage cars, to airplanes, to small scale panoramic landscapes. Though Creevy's oils are quite small (many no higher than 5"), his paint application is assertive and open in the manner of the early action painters. Notable for their highly textural surfaces, luminous paint freely applied, and bold rich colors, these small confident paintings pulse with memory and glow with vitality. 

  

Rachel Gordon Bernstein's landscapes (often with architectural elements), seascapes and garden close-ups offer the viewer a meditative experience. One reviewer called her work a "visual feast... with its light-filled tonalities and airy atmosphere" and "evocative rendering." Her paintings convey a powerful sense of place, with strong compositions and abstract underpinnings.  Gordon Bernstein's orchestration of light, shape and color gives rise to intimations of the sublime.

  

Jane Shoenfeld on her colorist landscape abstractions:   "As my landscapes proceed towards abstraction, representation no longer homes me into a vanishing point or settles me on a ground line.  My large horizontal paintings are wider than I am with my arms outspread.  I paint as I might fly, my peripheral vision is filled and I traverse the dips, glides, tilts and tunnels of space.  I fly slowly and enter the work through my body. Shifting references to representation stimulate the imagination without traditional perspective surmounting  goal-less, timeless, roaming  through space."
