TAKEFUMI HORI: Modern Alchemy

May 1, 2020

We are pleased to present TAKEFUMI HORI: Modern Alchemy, a virtual exhibition presented by Diehl Gallery on ARTSY. 
 
CLICK HERE to view exhibition.
 
The paintings included in TAKEFUMI HORI: Modern Alchemy provide an insightful look at the artist's visually stunning work. Takefumi Hori’s practice is rich and varied in its execution. Gold leaf is his media of choice. He begins with a base coat of gold acrylic paint, then layers clear gel mixed with pigment, followed by gold leaf. Next, his process of cutting, sanding and scratching begins, and is repeated over and over again. His additive process, in which he layers and scrapes away gold and continually paints and then strips back areas of paint, results in work that progressively unfolds to the viewer over time. Each layer, revealed or concealed, gives the frontal surface of the painting both a temporal and visual impact. The final result is a luminous, rich, textured and beautiful work of art.

SPOOKY ACTION: NEW COLLAGES BY JASON ROHLF

April 18, 2020

CLICK HERE to view the show.

When we first discussed the exhibition with Jason Rohlf, he said he wanted to name the show “Spooky Action”, referring to quantum particles that prove parallel universes are possible. Because it feels like we are in one at this moment. Who are we to argue with that?

In addition to available works in the gallery inventory, this exhibition includes new works on paper, Shop Rag paintings, and a new body of works, the Thai Carton series.

Over the last 10 years, Shop Rag paintings have become an integral part of Rohlf's daily studio work. They begin as loosely woven muslin towels, used to gather shapes and patterns along side larger canvases. They wipe brushes and palette knives, collecting all of their amazing colors and textures. As the paint covers the “rag”, its gift as a tool transforms the piece into a painting. 

Of the Thai Carton series, Rohlf says his teenage daughter showed him how to turn the cartons into DIY plates. He loved the geometric form so much that he saved the cartons, unfold them, sanded and primed them, and then made patterned pieces on them. The themes of these works bring to mind energy fields and sound waves. Some have metal leaf layered in them, giving an elevated status to an otherwise ordinary, disposable item.

The titles of the paintings in this exhibition are derived from various mythical characters referring to rivers, space, sleep, and planets - a reminder of our place in the universe.

FLIGHT: A Virtual Artsy Exhibition

April 8, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the gallery's closure for the foreseeable future, we are working hard to keep our artists and the gallery afloat. These are unprecedented times. We hope those of you who are in a position to do so, will continue to support artists and the arts through the acquisition of new art.

The idea of remaining afloat spurred the concept for an exhibition focused on flight, who - or what - flies, flying during these difficult times, technology and its relationship to flight, and of course the fact that our non-human companions on this planet are likely oblivious to our plight.

The works included in FLIGHT examine the concept of flight, not only that of birds and butterflies, but also satellites. Monica Aiello's mixed media painting of the Town of Jackson and studies of the National Elk Refuge and Blacktail Butte as seen from satellites in space offer a unique and interesting perspective. Other works in this exhibition include sculpture by Claire Brewster, Matt Devine, Ted Gall, Gwynn Murrill, and Chris Reilly; paintings by Susan Goldsmith, Peter Hoffer, Jeremy Houghton, Anastasia Kimmett, KOLLABS, Douglas Schneider, Hunt Slonem and Les Thomas; and Dennis Hlynsky's still photos taken from his videos of birds and moths.

In the galleries: ‘Evolving Traditions’ from a nontraditional artist

May 11, 2018 - Mark Jenkins

The traditional element in Takefumi Hori’s art is gold and occasionally silver leaf, applied with a nontraditional abandon. The artist, also a Japan-rooted New Yorker, splits Long View Gallery’s “Heavy Metal” with Eve Stockton, whose recent woodcut prints employ organic forms and silver ink.

Hori applies metal leaf thickly and unevenly, sometimes scrawling atop the surface. If the nuances are spontaneous, the layouts are tidy. The painter sometimes bisects his compositions, grounding fields of messy gold at the top with blocks of strong, single-color pigment on the bottom. Hori’s calligraphic gestures verge on the chaotic, but they’re contained in a strictly geometric cosmos.
