Splendor of Dynamic Structure
Celebrating 75 Years of the American Abstract Artists
Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art
Cornell University
Ithaca, NY 14853
January 22 – March 20, 2011

The American Abstract Artists, formed in 1936, were drawn to Mondrian’s ideal of the “splendor of dynamic structure.” Despite many changes since then, the AAA has continued strong for seventy-five years, a testament to their belief that the abstract impulse can encompass diverse approaches and identities, influenced by surrealism, expressionism, and landscape painting. The historical portion of this exhibition is culled from the Johnson Museum’s permanent collection, supplemented by a curated selection of works chosen from among the current members of the AAA. The exhibition and catalogue were supported by the Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation and the Cornell Council for the Arts.

Informal Relations


Informal Relations: Contemporary Works on Paper
Curated by Scott Grow
Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art
1043 Virginia Avenue, Suite 5
Indianapolis, IN 46203
December 3, 2010 – January 15, 2011
Opening: December 3, 6-11pm
Gallery Hours: Thursday–Saturday 11am – 6pm

Curator Scott Grow selects 32 artists from the United States, Germany, Spain and Japan to focus on the diversity of practices within painting and abstraction today.

The exhibition’s title refers to kind the “informal relations” artists have with one another, their predecessors, with the modernist tradition, the future, and even with their own work. While works on paper may stand as finished works, they are also often places for exploration, thinking, planning, taking chances, and failure. The show explores the challenges of abstract art. Since it typically refuses expected representation, language and absolute interpretation, it requires the viewer’s engagement and participation. Abstraction is not a singular school or style, the term itself is not necessarily helpful in identifying the qualities or concepts of the art object. Abstract artists often have shared and conflicting objectives for the art they make.

In response to these challenges with their genre of art, each artist in Informal Relations presents a definition of abstract painting. The exhibition explores the similarities, differences, and connections between these artists, their dialog with abstraction’s history, and various directions forward for abstraction.

Participating artists include: Patrick Alt, Chris Ashley, Patrick Berran, Kadar Brock, Matthew Deleget, Laura Fayer, Keltie Ferris, Patrick Michael Fitzgerald, Connie Goldman, Brent Hallard, Rachel Hayes, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Michael Just, Matthew Langley, Jim Lee, Rossana Martinez, Rob Nadeau, Melissa Oresky, Paul Pagk, Danielle Riede, Maximilian Rödel, Eric Sall, Susan Scott, Gabriel J. Shuldiner, Jessica Snow, Henning Straßburger, Garth Weiser, Wendy White, Paige Williams, Douglas Witmer, Molly Zuckerman-Hartung and John Zurier.

Techno Park Studios
15 Techno Park Drive
Williamstown 3016 Melbourne
September 4-19, 2010
Opening: Saturday, September 4, 4-6pm
Live Performance by Riki-Metisse Marlow at 5pm

Cytoarchitecture brings together six artists whose diverse practices are loosely threaded together by a number of intersecting concerns. These interests include abstraction, a reductive aesthetic and correlations between biological and constructed forms. The exhibition will include installation, live-feed video, automated sound sculptures, wall-drawings and modified found objects.

Matthew Deleget is a New York-based non-objective artist and curator who runs MINUS SPACE in Brooklyn. Melanie Irwin, who has shown both nationally and in Europe, utilizes sculpture, photography, video and performance. Most recently her work was seen at Blindside in Melbourne and at the John Fries Memorial Prize in Sydney where she was awarded second prize. Liang Xia Luscombe is an artist and writer and is currently Writer-in-Residence at Canberra Contemporary Art Space. Taree Mackenzie’s video works have been shown nationally and most recently she featured in Achromatism – Recent Video Work from the ACT, at the Queensland Centre for Photography. Riki-Metisse Marlow’s practice crosses automated sound-sculpture and performance with her work being seen most recently at the Format Festival, as part of Adelaide Fringe Festival. Kent Wilson is an artist, curator and writer whose sculptural sound works were most recently seen at Seventh Gallery, Melbourne.

Exhibition facilitated by Melanie Irwin and Taree Mackenzie.

Colour Light Time


Colour Light Time
Curated by David Thomas
Two Rooms
16 Putiki Street
Newton 1145 Auckland
New Zealand
September 9 – October 9, 2010
Private view: Thursday, September 9, 6-8pm

Colour and light are capable of generating diverse culturally loaded readings as well as strong physical sensations. Their readings are complex, interpreted as physical phenomena (sensation) and symbolic codes (knowledge).

The exhibition grows out of an interest in the tradition and diverse readings of the MONOCHROME via painting to include: constructions, interventions, photography, moving-image and installation by New Zealand and international artists. BUT rather than interpreting the MONOCHROME as a traditional formalist model, the exhibition brings the MONOCHROME into the C21where it is employed as a device to manifest an awareness of colour, light, movement and time AMID THE WORLD in order to help us see our experiencing of our world.

The artworks in this exhibition celebrate complexity, transience, and the contingent nature of being. They offer us a range of approaches whilst engaging us with experiencing, perceiving, understanding, reading and feeling and ask us to consider how these processes unfold and develop over time.

This project exhibits works by established international artists alongside works of a newer generation.

THE ARTISTS include:
Joachim Bandau (GER), Lisa Benson (NZ), Christoph Dahlhausen (GER), Matthew Deleget (USA), Noel Ivanoff (NZ), Laresa Kosloff (AUS), William Mackrell (UK), Simon Morris (NZ), David Sequeira (AUS), David Thomas (AUS).

The contemplative layered watercolours of Joachim Bandau (GER), manifest movement and time.

Lisa Benson (NZ) photographic drawings emphasizes time through the recording of changing light in the tradition of concrete photography.

The glass and vinyl film works of Christoph Dahlhausen (GER), are informed by Non Objective and phenomenological explorations of light and colour, placed in situ that play with reflection, light and colour

Noel Ivanoff (NZ). His work manifests time and duration through a sensitive material awareness of gesture, structure and fabrication.

Matthew Deleget (USA) produces paintings/ installations that exploit the monochrome tradition via specific use of encoded colour and exaggerated gesture to address political and psychological content.

The video works of Laresa Kosloff (AUS) use colour, timing to combine the tropes of sport and modernism to create works of contemplation and humour.

William Mackrell (UK). His photos and his use of cones of light to pictorialise space with ordinary materials in a manner that enables us become aware of our changing experience of space, light in time .

The durational paintings of Simon Morris (NZ) manifest time through their use of colour, process and materiality to generate an awareness of movement of time and space.

David Sequeira (AUS). His long study of the colour in paintings and installations has been translated into a new body of photographic and video works manifesting time and change, in an affectionate and playful manner.

The photopaintings and paintings of David Thomas (AUS) use the monochrome as a vehicle/interval in assisting us to recognise what surrounds it where it is placed amid the world.

Alejandra von Hartz Gallery
2630 NW 2nd Avenue
Miami, FL 33127
Wynwood Art District
September 11 – October 30, 2010
Opening: Saturday, September 11, 7-10pm

Alejandra von Hartz Gallery is pleased to announce the two-person exhibition Color Climate: Matthew Deleget / David E. Peterson. The exhibition will feature new abstract painting installations by Brooklyn artist Matthew Deleget and Atlanta artist David E. Peterson. Color Climate will be the artists’ first exhibition with the gallery and it will take place from September 11 to October 30, 2010, with an opening reception on Saturday, September 11, from 7-10 pm.

Matthew Deleget is a conceptual, reductive painter who will present an installation of new Shuffle paintings. Informed by the “shuffle” feature on his iPod, each painting consists of a checkered grid of four colors completely selected at random, producing visual results that vary widely. The gallery walls where his paintings are to be installed will also be painted various colors selected at random. This specific series of paintings, made of acrylic paint, including fluorescent, metallic, and iridescent colors, on thin archival masonite panels, is directly inspired by the legendary salsa ensemble Fania All-Stars. Each painting will pay homage to a specific musician in the group, including Johnny Pacheco, Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz, Ray Barretto, and Larry Harlow, among others.

David E. Peterson makes rule-based paintings that are informed by high-end industrial design goods, including laptop computers, athletic shoes, men’s fashion, and Modern architecture. For Color Climate, David will present three new suites of paintings from his ongoing Product Abstraction series. The paintings present his investigation into the formal qualities and associated consumer aspirations of three specific lines of designer goods, including Nixon’s Newton watch collection, Asics’ Onitsuka Tiger line of sneakers, and wallets designed by Paul Smith. The individual paintings, made from acrylic and UV resin on MDF and produced in finite series, similar to the design goods themselves, will be installed in large grid formations on the gallery walls.

Matthew Deleget will moderate a discussion with an international group of contemporary artists including Lenora de Barros, Paul Henry Ramirez and Don Voisine. The artists will talk about the legacy of constructivist abstract art as it relates to their work and explore why abstraction continues to be a vital mode of expression.

This panel discussion is presented in honor of Elizabeth Brady Richards.

Matthew Deleget is an abstract artist, curator and writer. He is the director of MINUS SPACE, a gallery and web site project devoted to reductive art in Brooklyn, New York.

Lenora de Barros is a poet and visual artist based in São Paulo, Brazil, whose work includes video, poetic performance, photography and sound installation. Having exhibited throughout Brazil and abroad, she is interested in exploring the abstract visual, aural and material signs of language.

Paul Henry Ramirez is a US artist noted for his signature style of fleshy and pop-inspired abstraction. BLACKOUT: A Centennial Commission by Paul Henry Ramirez is a site-specific installation in which he has transformed the Newark Museum’s Charles Engelhard Court with abstract, biomorphic forms and playful, bold color.

Don Voisine is an abstract painter based in Brooklyn, New York. President of the New York-based American Abstract Artists group that was founded in 1936, he works with a visual vocabulary of pared-down geometric form to explore the possibilities of visual space within abstraction.

On view through 05.23.2010

Constructive Spirit
Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s – 50s

Constructive Spirit investigates the formative geometric abstract art movements of Argentina, Brazil, the United States, Uruguay and Venezuela. This exhibition is the first to explore the conceptual connections and exchanges that existed between abstract artists from South and North America. Featured are more than 90 paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs, drawings and films drawn from the collection of the Newark Museum, along with loans from public and private collections and galleries across both continents. Artists include Alexander Calder, Joaquín Torres-García, Alejandro Otero, Gyula Kosice, Lygia Clark, Ellsworth Kelly, Geraldo de Barros and many others.

A Centennial Commission by Paul Henry Ramirez

BLACKOUT: A Centennial Commission by Paul Henry Ramirez is a site-specific installation that allows viewers to experience painting as an environment that one can enter. Using the Newark Museum’s Charles Engelhard Court as his canvas, Ramirez employs his signature curvaceous biomorphic forms amidst a profusion of pop-inspired colors in dialogue with the Court’s distinctive Beaux-Arts architecture. BLACKOUT is the fourth and final commissioned project initiated to celebrate the Museum’s Centennial year.

Space Is the Place

Matthew Deleget, On the Back of a Hurricane (for Rudolph de Crignis), 2008

Space Is the Place
A look back at the year in alternative art spaces and exhibitions
By Matt Morris
Cincinnati, Ohio
December 30, 2009

“Cincinnati’s vibrant community of alternative-exhibition spaces is my first love in this area. I am boastful of the innovations I witness in these unlikely places, where I not only exhibit my own installations but also, in several cases, help organize and curate exhibitions. I also write as an art critic for CityBeat and other publications, though I gracefully avoid reviewing my own endeavors, of course…

For me personally, as an artist, it has been a rewarding year. I have not only had the opportunity to exhibit in well-loved venues like Aisle Gallery but also been able to show — and come to know — less likely exhibition spaces, such as the stone staircase at Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church or the Campbell County Library…

Overall, these are what I found to be my the most moving alternative- and contemporary-art experiences in Cincinnati this year:

• Touch Faith at semantics (Nov. 7-28). Guest curator Jeffrey Cortland Jones brought together an accomplished set of artists from around the country to look at current practices in abstraction and painting. I will never forget the subtle and deeply moving monochrome “On the Back of a Hurricane (for Rudolf de Crignis),” [by Matthew Deleget] a simple blue rectangle that employed a plastic shopping bag for its color and texture…”

Creative Reflections on War and Peace:
Pratt Alumni Survey the Experiences and Consequences of War through Written and Visual Accounts
Prattfolio: The Magazine of Pratt Institute
Fall 2008

Featured my work “From Bad to Worse to Truly Terrible”, 2007.

“Although I would never consider myself a political artist, I have been terribly concerned about the War on Terror since 9/11 and it has been occupying a clear and central role in my work over the past few years. My installation From Bad to Worse to Truly Terrible is part of an ongoing series War Monochromes. The piece, which was shown in the Sideshow Gallery in Brooklyn in September 2007, references a quote from a U.S. soldier serving his N-th tour of duty in Iraq describing the deteriorating situation on the ground. The black-on-black monochromes in this installation, made by first painting the circular canvases matte black and then pouring gloss black paint over them, occupy the space somewhere between bullet holes and oil spills. I wanted the overall installation to approximate a pockmarked wall in a combat zone.”
