"Escalator to the Overlook" : Ryan Decker

In his first exhibition with the gallery, Ryan Decker is taking a hike. A walk on a winding trail wherein he deploys the materials of camping and the outdoors to transmute experiences from an adolescence spent experimenting in the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Appalachian Highlands. Escalator to the Overlook marks a change in the artist's practice, wherein Decker has moved from furniture design to fine arts, creating sculptural work on the border of figuration that translates the mechanisms of post-war machinery into an REI-infused fever dream..

"The Earth Wants You Back" : Linnea Vedder

Linnea Vedder creates paintings as haptic experiences, fabricated from pieced cotton, linen, and wool, dyed and layered with acrylic and oil paint, these paintings begin with intricate lattice and pineapple motifs, derived from the study of quilt-making. Connection emerges as the theme of this exhibition— to earth and sky, to children and ancestors, and to the portals that usher us into communion– the dirt on your hands, as well as the water that washes it off. “The Earth wants you back” is both a call to connection and a reminder, like ashes to ashes, that we all eventually return to where we came from.

"Birds on Cages" : Sandra Chevrier

Is true freedom attainable? It’s a lofty question, but one artist Sandra Chevrier hasn’t shied away from in her years of artmaking. Her solo exhibition Birds on Cages at Harman Projects NYC is the newest presentation of paintings and mixed-media works in her Cages series, a growing body of work that highlights how grand societal expectations of women actually limit their actions and desires. Merging hyperreal portraits of women with the pop-aesthetic of comic book superheroes, Chevrier’s paintings offer a fresh perspective on liberation and the powers women have to destroy their cages; to sing for freedom.

PANTA RHEI - Everything Flows (Heraclitus) Cosmit Impermanence

Gretl Bauer, Leslie Ford, Edward M. Giordano Jr., VIctoria Lowe, Tammi Meehan and Gerald Wolfe

PANTA 

Inspired by the Greek pre-socratic Philosopher Heraclitus (500 BC), and his idea of constant change - all things are in flux - this exhibition in various media addresses the concept of a world that Heraclitus describes as "always becoming but never being".  Panta Rhei = everything flows, the Greek term for the realization of a concundrum - that in Heraclitus' words, "No man ever steps in the same river twice", with the joined connotation/meaning that both neither the river nor the man/human will be the same a second time.  The artists in this exhibition with painting, process art, sculpture, and woroks on paper, and with their own individual practives, comment visually and conceptually on the notion of flow and movement while also emoting, abstractly, existential observations about form, humanity and personhood.  Curatorial Walk Thru and RECEPTION, Thursday May 16 | 6-8 PM

"Autofiction" : Susan Lichtman

Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects presents Autofiction, an exhibition of paintings by Susan Lichtman. Some of the pieces were included at Lichtman’s recent show at the Rose Art Museum, in an exhibition celebrating her forty-two year career at Brandeis University. Autofiction is a genre of literature that combines autobiography and invention. Lichtman paints scenes of her household and family, however her works serve a novelistic function instead of a documentary one, creating what she thinks of as fictions, which attempt “mystery and specificity at the same time.” Working from memory to depict her own home “somehow allows for a more resolved image.” These scenes are the emotional result of prolonged meditation; portraits of continuity and change over time rather than immediate snapshots.

"Femme" : Angela A'Court, Charles Buckley, Deirdre O'Connell, Deborah Freedman, Miriam Hitchcock, Ruth Shively, Jan Testori-Markman and Ulla Scheinemann

Throughout the history of art the feminine form has served a multitude of purposes as muse, model, object of lust and a representation of societal standards or morals. Presented for public consumption, women’s bodies were displayed as commodities within and for the male gaze. In Femme, SEFA reexamines these notions and explores contemporary depictions of women at our New York City Gallery.
