SEDECIM XVI
Group Exhibition

November 22, 2019 – January 24, 2020
Presented by Woodward Gallery at the
Down Town Association, 60 Pine Street, NYC
Opening Reception: December 6th from 6-8pm

Featuring: Willem de Kooning, Natalie Edgar, Richard Estes, Paul Gauguin, Richard Hambleton, Keith Haring, David Hockney, Robert Indiana, Franz Kline, Roy Lichtenstein, Margaret Morrison, Kenji Nakayama, Terence Netter, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol


Woodward Gallery presents Sedecim, a group exhibition of sixteen distinctive artists. Each artist harnesses the power of the materials and ideals of their time to challenge the conventional wisdom of art.


A 1967 painting by Willem de Kooning elevates waves of color to an abstract mountain ridge while Natalie Edgar deftly employs negative space with color to take the viewer on her abstract journey. Original works on paper by Franz Kline confidently show action and movement with little color or discernible forms. British Artist David Hockney’s series from the Six Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm invites the imagination to roam freely. A former Jesuit priest Terence Netter paints minimalist landscapes in an offering of serenity.Conceptual Artist Richard Hambleton is known for his energetically painted black figures jumping, running, lurking on urban walls around the world. His Shadowman, painted permanently on canvas, stands with confidence in order to evoke our reaction. Paul Gauguin contrasts darkness with the rawness of a primitive style in his woodblock prints. The cartoon icons of Keith Haring simply announce his pop culture message. Robert Indiana emphasizes his important message of L-O-V-E and H-O-P-E in capital letters, arranged in a square with a tilted letter “O”. Pop art cartoon figures and text are combined in parody in Roy Lichtenstein’s work.Richard Estes creates and masterfully renders photorealist cityscapes. Margaret Morrison tantalizes us with her realist oil paintings of decadent Italian beverages. James Rosenquist adapts the visual language of advertising and pop culture to the context of fine art. Andy Warhol in his pre-pop work creates a whimsical series of society recipes catering more to the artistic than the culinary — more to expressionism than to realism. Warhol’s early ink drawings are rendered in clean lines displaying his exceptional draftsmanship of figures. Kenji Nakayama unites organic flora and urban scenes in precise multi-layered stencils using spray paint. Robert Rauschenberg’s use of solvent transfer, collage and silkscreen are previously used only in the commercial process.


Together these sixteen artists represent over one hundred years of art inspiring and transcending their genres. Woodward Gallery is available online (WoodwardGallery.net), always through the Gallery’s street-level windows, and by private appointment.

richard hambleton documentary premieres at tribeca film festival

Shadowman, directed and written by Oren Jacoby. (USA) – World Premiere.

In the early 1980s, Richard Hambleton was New York City’s precursor to Banksy, a rogue street artist whose silhouette paintings haunted the sides of Manhattan buildings. Like so many other geniuses of his time, he fell victim to drug addiction, even as his work continued to rise in both demand and value. Shadowman doubles as both a time capsule of a forgotten New York City era, and a redemption story.

CONCEPTUAL ARTIST

Born in Tofino, Vancouver Island, BC and relocated to NYC in the late 70’s, Richard Art Hambleton is the Godfather of Public Art who used the urban canvas to evoke public reaction. He is reputed as an elusive genius after the early deaths of his colleagues Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Hambleton is the original American Pop Expressionist with unforgettable images that have permeated our collective consciousness for four decades now. His celebrated works include acclaimed series known as Image Mass Murder, Marlboro Man, Shadow Man, Shadow Head Portraits, Horse and Riders, and Beautiful Paintings. Hambleton died on October 29, 2017 on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

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.

From the Street Up is a selection of celebrated urban artists who concentrate their creativity without walls. For centuries, humans leave tracks, symbols, and objects to record their location, time, and experience. It is an ancient form of documentation.

Woodward Gallery invited Artists Royce Bannon and Cassius Fouler to co-curate the exhibition. Each of the featured Artists are noted for their Public or Street art: John Ahearn, Michael Alan, Richard Hambleton, Robert Janz, NohJColey, Miguel Ovalle, Leon Reid IV, Skewville, Gabriel Specter, stikman, and UFO.

Since most people walk while looking down, urban artists can capture this line of vision by carefully selecting the location for their street sculpture to exist. The principals of concentration, curation and location help define the essence of the project. Removing the vulnerable factor by isolating the work indoors, permits us to finally experience the full theory behind the art–the creative focus of defying gravity. The exhibition walls are bare as the work is presented from the street up.
