GROUP SEVEN
Group Exhibition
March – May 2023
Woodward Gallery

 

Woodward Gallery presents GROUP SEVEN, an exhibition focusing on seven artists and their varied techniques of painting. Though AI and NFT art production has captured quite a bit of public speculation, we are taking a closer look at more traditional, yet compelling techniques for making tangible art. Specifically, Woodward Gallery’s current exhibition, GROUP SEVEN, features the painted work of Jose Aurelio Baez, Deborah Claxton, Cosbe, RH DOAZ, Mark Mastroianni, Daniel Rosenbaum, and Francesco Tumbiolo and their varied methods.

 

Together, these artists modernize the traditional artistic mediums of painting with exciting, contemporary twists. Jose Aurelio Baez collages advertisements and wallpaper to create urban-styled paintings. Deborah Claxton hand-cuts numerous bits of tiny pieces of paper under a magnifying glass to construct her almost photographic image. Cosbe harnesses his raw emotions onto found objects to create striking works of art. RH DOAZ is a known street, public, and mural Artist who contemplates humanity and the natural world in his work. Similarly, Mark Mastroianni has mastered Casein milk paint to achieve a smooth surface with natural shapes and patterns found in stone, granite, and ice. Abstract painter Daniel Rosenbaum imagines an unnatural environment conjuring a new reality. Francesco Tumbiolo paints ambiguous gestural figures in primary colors, inviting the viewer to participate. Each Artist in GROUP SEVEN presents their own style of painting technique in contrast to the absurd notion that tangible art has lost its relevancy in the Contemporary Art World. 

 

GROUP SEVEN is on view in Woodward Gallery’s street-level windows from March to May 2023. Please plan to visit in person 24/7 from our street-level exhibition windows, and by private appointment. It is available with a full-color catalogue on our website and also online, on Artsy.net and  Widewalls.ch.

Group Show
January 4 – February 22, 2014
Woodward Gallery

Woodward Gallery launches their 20TH Anniversary Year with the group exhibition Sur-Real.
The exhibition title emphasizes each part of the word surreal to give us pause to search for the fantasy in each featured artist’s imagination. With broad strokes or subtle detail, new visions for what seem possible are evoked.


The individual artists step outside of the fundamental world of life and enter another dimension of the creative process. They work in fine contemporary painting, street art backgrounds, paper collage and screenprinting techniques, yet release the creative potential of their unconscious mind. Their work liberates our existence with insight into a new artistic reality.


The selected Artists: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Thomas Buildmore, Deborah Claxton, Sybil Gibson, Richard Hambleton, Kosbe, David Larson, Mark Mastroianni, Margaret Morrison, NoseGo, Kenji Nakayama, Dennis Oppenheim, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, stikman, Jeremy Szopinski, Francesco Tumbiolo, Jo Ellen Van Ouwerkerk, Cristina Vergano, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Andy Warhol are an influential force reinterpreting our conventional thoughts and expressions.

Extreme Paper
March 8 – May 3, 2008
Woodward Gallery

Woodward Gallery is proud to present Deborah Claxton: Extreme Paper.
Deborah Claxton takes paper collage to the extreme! In her latest exhibition, Claxton fearlessly navigates the journey from millions of cells of cellulose to thousands of hand-cut bits of paper to a fate-map-directed, vision of nature.


Claxton’s technique will undeniably excite the most disenchanted critics of contemporary art.
The scientific, almost clinical, approach Claxton self-imposes is remarkable in order to achieve her unprecedented vision. Not simply a work on paper, each “paper painting” is performed under a large magnifying glass to precisely isolate the tiniest paper fragment. Claxton surgically sculpts groups of paper cells into a distinct new form in her artistic operation.
From the extreme process to her peaceful resolution, the countless individual paper bits are meticulously organized into a unique collage. Her paper is reawakened to fresh, colorful images inspired by her life and faith.

Still Cut Paper
September 14 – October 30, 2004
Woodward Gallery

Woodward Gallery is proud to open the Fall Season with Deborah Claxton: Still Cut Paper.

 

A true original-Claxton has been privately completing works made entirely of hand-cut-paper for years. In her second solo exhibition at Woodward Gallery, Artist Deborah Claxton continues to inspire awe. Thousands of delicate and tiny, hand-cut-pieces of paper are arranged according to a technical self drawn “map” of color. The resulting image is a mirage which first appears impressionistic and then reveals meticulous concentration to detail, amazing the unwitting viewer.

 

Claxton’s detailed portraits of people, animals, insects, flowers and landscapes are colorful and compelling in their familiarity. She captures a moment that we relate to and iconizes that very moment with her uniquely specialized technique.

 

Deborah Claxton’s formal introduction to the art press and to serious art collectors began in 2001. Claxton has already won the respect of some of the most influential people in the arts today. Her cut-paper “paintings” are in collections throughout the USA, and will be further discussed in critical essays this Fall.

 

Deborah Claxton: Still Cut Paper must be seen to be believed!
