Go Figure is a solo exhibition exploring the variations and possibilities of the human figure through the eyes of one artist. Techniques, materials, styles, subject matter vary in each painting. Some are expressionistic figures made with paint on canvas, others are constructions, while some figures are made with found objects on wood.
Go Figure out for yourself how one artist can engender the many possibilities of figurative painting.
The figurative painting exhibition will feature the artist's signature bold, textured, sensual works incorporating found objects.
Bauer Neustadter's work has been featured at the Montclair, Hunterdon. Jersey City, and Newark museums, Belskie Museum of Arts and Science, Bergen Museum of Art and Science, George Segal Gallery at Montclair State University, Piermont Fine Arts Gallery, and Prince Street Gallery, Sylvia Wald Po Kim Gallery, New Century Artists, NAWA Gallery and Venezuelan Consulate in New York City.
Bauer Neustadter studied with Nicki Orbach, Michael Dillon and Miriam Beerman. She majored in dance at Bennington College and worked and studied with Merce Cunningham, Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham and Claire Porter.
"The sense of dynamic movement in Neustadter's artworks may come from her background in dance. She has also done choreography and her larger woven pieces have served as props or settings for performance pieces."
-Eileen Watkins, Weekend Guide and Arts Entertainment, Newark Star-Ledger.
Ceres Gallery is proud to present Out of Bounds, felted sculptures by Susan Kaplow. Kaplow's work falls outside the bounds of the usual felting practices, which employ the softest fibers and aim for the smoothest surfaces to create wearable and decorative objects. Instead, Kaplow chooses rougher fibers and techniques that preserve a reference to the animals that provide the raw material. She adds cooler elements-- metals, bones, thorns-- to play against the warmth of the felt, increasing the dynamic tension in the sculptures.
Kaplow's aesthetic is inspired by and conveys the tension inherent in nature and in
our lives, where violence and beauty, coming to life and dying away, blessings and curses are bound up together. Her work invites viewers into the mystery of all this
and into a broader definition of beauty.
