Because of the overwhelming positive response from our first open call for artists from the boroughs in 2012/2013, Denise Bibro Fine Art is pleased to announce an open call to artists for our “Art From the Boros II” exhibition in 2014. The primary purpose of the exhibition is to bring to the public’s attention untapped and underexposed talent in all of the 5 boroughs of New York. After visiting all of the finalists’ studios, a selection of the most talented of the group will be featured in a group exhibition at Denise Bibro Fine Art in 2014. Two artists will be chosen to have a special exhibition of their work.
Denise Bibro, Director of Denise Bibro Fine Art, is pleased to have been chosen as a part of a panel of experts at Speed/Networking/Live! event at Artspace in New Haven.
David Barnett, The Decendant, 2012
collage on wood, 14.5" x 18 1/4" x 2 3/4"
Denise Bibro Fine Art, 529 W 20th St. NYC, is pleased to announce David Barnett’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery, Remains To Be Seen, on view November 21, 2013 through January 11, 2014.
Barnett creates his intricate collages and constructions with a combination of found objects and imagination. He gathers society’s excess of mechanical objects to ultimately expose humanity’s frivolous attempts at exceeding nature with industrialization, constantly discarding older technological materials in lieu of advancement. Barnett’s transformations of rejected machinery into works of art involve techniques of automation, revealing that no person is an exception to technology’s grip on society.
Barnett’s ilk is object construction, assemblage, and collage. Exploring his sensibilities and combining his love for found objects and experimentation, he forms an artistic palate that is essentially limitless. The finished products are “detailed mixed media constructions that create intimate worlds with connections between the past and the present” by portraying an assortment of Victorian imagery, ancient anatomical diagrams, flying machines, and mechanical elements.
Besides having several solo exhibitions with Denise Bibro Fine Art, Barnett has had solo exhibitions at Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD; Upstream Gallery, Dobbs Ferry, NY; St. Andrew’s School, Middletown, DE. and the Brownstone Gallery, Brooklyn, NY. Numerous group shows include Gallery Henoch, Allan Stone Gallery, and the Armory Show, all in NYC; Katonah Museum of Art, Southampton Art Fair, Mamaroneck Artist Guild, The Maryland Federation of Art, Westchester Arts Council, Futura Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden; The Blue Door Gallery, and Benton Nyce Gallery, among others. He has been profiled in The New York Times, Idea magazine, and Print magazine. Barnett has held teaching positions at Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute, and the School of Visual Arts.
Warren Linn, McCoyTynerToo, 2008-13
Assemblage, 18" x 9" x 2"
Denise Bibro Fine Art, 529 W 20th St. NYC, is pleased to announce Warren Linn’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, Raw and Resolved, on view November 21, through January 11, 2014.
Warren Linn maintains sketchbooks. His daily practice of drawing becomes the basis and source for his artwork. These are chronicles. The artist utilizes his forty years of experience with illustrations to reconstruct his sketches and previous fragments into collages and assemblages of variously shaped forms. In spring 2011, while living in Italy, he experimented with reassembled drawings, eventually developing them into the finished works we see today. Although Linn initially starts with a well-planned intention or narrative, his work is deeply informed by the unexpected. Accident, surprise, and discovery are incorporated into his creative process. Linn is both blessed and burdened with insatiability. He often revisits works for editing after having thought them resolved. Similar to the Abstract Expressionists who inspired him early on, Linn allows the viewer to pick up where he leaves off, resulting in works open to interpretation despite the definitive imagery. The ambiguity within his collages is a product of drawing, painting, and construction coming together.
Warren Linn is on the faculty of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), has worked as an illustrator for major media clients, and exhibited in a wide range of galleries and venues over the past four decades including the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD; Society of Illustrators, New York, NY; Baltimore Museum of Art, Baltimore, MD; St. John’s University, Jamaica, NY; The Jazz Gallery, New York, NY; Parsons School of Design, New York, NY; Esther Rand Gallery, New York, NY; Mesa Contemporary Arts Center, Mesa, AZ; The Knitting Factory, New York, NY; The Art Directors Club, New York, NY; Artists Guild of Chicago, Chicago, IL; The Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art, Nagoya, Japan.
