Sparkling sequins, beads, rhinestones, glass, paints, and various other objects are presented in shiny abstract forms in the brilliantly vibrant artwork of the late Park McGinty, a multimedia artist who favored the flamboyant. Park’s colorful creations have appeared at the Brooklyn Waterfront Arts Council, the Denise Bibro Gallery, the Dacia Gallery, the Phoenix Gallery and the famed ArtExpo exhibition via the Artvita Gallery.
Joseph O’Neill presents Urban Abstract, a new photography exhibition running from March 1 to March 25 at the Phoenix Gallery, 548 W. 28th St., 10001.
New York-based photographer Joseph O’Neill, whose work has appeared in U.S. Embassies In Muscat, Oman and Riga, Latvia, will present his work at a new show in the Phoenix Gallery on New York City’s West Side.
Inspired by Eugene Atget’s style of capturing the simplicities of everyday life, and Man Ray’s unique combination of photographic realism and artistic surrealism, O’Neill’s work captures elements of New York City that are urban and industrial in tone. Rather than trying to make things beautiful, he seeks the deeper truth beneath the first impression. “I simply don’t accept the limited view of the first look,” he says. “When I take a photograph, I never know what I will find. But if I’m quiet; if I’m patient; if I let the subject do the talking; I nearly always discover something—a story that wants to be told.”

(Project Space Guest Artist) Examiner "Artist spotlight: Ellen Silberlicht" by Meagan Meehan May 15, 2016 Ellen Silberlicht began her art career after receiving her BFA in Ceramic and Ceramic Sculpture from Rochester Institute of Technology through the School of American Crafts. She created some avante garde fiber works which she sold internationally through the America Craft Council shows making her living until she accidentally fell into teaching. Having never wanting to enter that field, Ellen learned that she had a passion for sharing her artistic knowledge with others. She has been a high school art teacher, mainly teaching pottery, for the last 16 years. This has given her the summers to work on her own art, but it has limited her ability to jump back into the art world until recently. This week, Ellen Silberlicht spoke to the Examiner about her experiences working as an artist and her hopes for the future.

"The stated goal of New York City-born, Portland, Maine-based painter Elise Ansel is “re-creating, re-visioning, and re-presenting” paintings from the past. Subjects of her bold re-renderings have included Édouard Manet’s “Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe” (1863), Nicolas Poussin’s “Flight into Egypt” (1657), and Caravaggio’s “The Taking of Christ” (1602)."
Painter Elise Ansel storms the boys’ club, confronting Old Masters to create her wildly abstract paintings.
"Spelunking into the male-dominated canon, artist Elise Ansel wields paint like an explorer might use a flashlight to illuminate the dark corners of a cave. Known for her abstract riffs on Old Masters, Ansel tackles art history’s hegemonic, and often misogynistic, narrative through reinterpretation. The Maine-based painter’s latest body of work, which is on view until April 17 at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, addresses a piece she encountered while exploring the on-campus collection: Annunciation by late Flemish Renaissance painter Denys Calvaert."
"Neither satisfied nor happy with the over-emphasis on realistic painting techniques at China’s traditional art academies, Huo Dongze (霍 东泽), like many young Chinese artists, left the comfort of China for a new place far away across the Pacific Ocean for the sake of artistic freedom. Yet, when he first arrived at Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2011, the conflict between his educational environment and his art practices did not disappear. Overwhelmed by language barriers and cultural shock, he struggled to embrace the profound conceptual art education at his new school. Turning uncertainties and conflicts into motivation, Huo was encouraged to experiment with new media and themes."
"The painter remakes a classic scene with brushy bravado in this small show that runs through April 17. Elise Ansel’s “Distant Mirrors” is a small show in which the painter presents a series of drawings and paintings that comprise a sort of visual investigation of Denys Calvaert’s “Annunciation” (ca. 1595) owned by the Bowdoin College Museum of Art."
