MFA Welcomes Artist KATHERINE TZU-LAN MANN

25 Jul
Morton Fine Art is thrilled to introduce artist KATHERINE TZU-LAN MANN to our roster.
“My work’s abstractions arise from the subjects I portray: ecological and geological cycles, processes of chemical corrosion and natural efflorescence. With roots in traditions of Chinese landscape painting, my monumentally sized paintings and installations evolve a fantastic, abstract vision of the natural world.
The paper on which I paint is not only a recognition of a tradition of Chinese painting; it is also a medium of vulnerability and expansiveness, susceptible to crease and tear as well as to collage and collation.
In my most recent work, I hope to live in the tradition of landscape painting, experiencing it for what it has always been: an occasion for radical experimentation and confrontation with the world, in the broadest sense of the term that sustains us.”
– KATHERINE MANN, 2017

New Works by ETHAN DIEHL

31 Jan

Artist Ethan Diehl has painted new American narratives in gray scale. Each painting is comprised of tens of thousands of oil paint squares on canvas. His time staking grid painting process yields a dual visual experience from close -up and at a distance, creating an “unreal realism” which is both emotionally and visually complex .

New Works by ANDREI PETROV

13 Jan
Based in New York City, ANDREI PETROV explores memory in his organic abstract paintings. His paintings probe the distortion, incompleteness and rare moments of clarity in the shadows of memory. Each piece portrays the intrinsic struggle and selective inclusion or exclusion of details in the process of recollection. At times, sharpness occurs in the rear of the picture plane while the out of focus, obscured areas, exist in a larger scale toward the foreground and make reference to the inscrutable nature of long and short term memory.

About I Am Beginning to See the Light
MACKINNON states that “Painting for me is a way of thinking…an open-ended sort of intuitive tinkering and discovery. Each day I come into the studio feeling different. I often leave notes from the end of the previous day as a clue of how to proceed. But since then, a lot has happened. I feel different…Sleep, dreams, what I have seen on my drive to work or along the coast, and my feelings all creep into my artwork. I try to bring this new version of myself into the next phase of the painting…that “quick thinking” which draws on everything you have seen and felt and read and looked at in a lifetime. In the end, all of my paintings are self portraits.”
