KYLE FIELD: Group Exhibition at Brachfeld Gallery, Paris

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Kyle Field has work on view at Brachfeld Gallery, 78 rue des Archives, Paris 3rd. May 24 – June 25 / Opening reception May 24th, 6-10pm, with a live musical performance by the artists

“Greetings is a collection of new work from Californian artists, Kyle Field, Nathaniel Russell, and Alia Shawkat. The work will explore the literal and abstracted meanings of a greeting: the first words from an unknown being, a message from a foreign land, a signal from the afterlife, a connection of the individual with the infinite, a personal plea to the universe, or a presence emerging from the dark. Most simply, a greeting is the turning point between the unknown and the known. As well as having actual origins in a land far from Paris, France, these three artists create work that originates from the far reaches of inner space and describes fantastic worlds, mutated beings, cosmic dreamscapes and metaphysical symbols. Greetings will meet you at the threshold of their other worlds and your own.”

The Gallery has created a blog that follows the 3 artists during their residency in the countryside: Click HERE

Danielle is featured in April 2012 issue of CA Home + Design.

“Since 2003, she has been taking a series of self- portraits that reflect her family history.  For authenticity, she journeys to the places where her forebears lived and dons clothing (some items actually belonged to her ancestors) before striking poses inspired by old photographs, stories and memories.”

Ellen Caldwell reviews Charlene Liu’s exhibition “Everywhere Close to Me” in New American Paintings

“In her third solo show “Everywhere Close to Me” at Taylor De Cordoba, Charlene Liu creates and mediates really special moments with her works on paper.  Using delicate cutouts, overlapping and woven papers, and sculptural pigmented pulpy constructs, Liu creates a world that is both delicate and daring.”
