Spheres Of Influence: Al Held, Michael Craig-Martin, Judy Pfaff, And Stanley Whitney

Senior & Shopmaker is pleased to present Spheres of Influence: Al Held, Michael Craig-Martin, Judy Pfaff, and Stanley Whitney, a group exhibition of drawings by preeminent abstract painter and former Yale professor, Al Held (1928-2005), along with three illustrious former students from the Yale School of Art graduate program in the 1960s and 70s. Michael Craig-Martin (MFA 1966); Judy Pfaff  (MFA 1973); and Stanley Whitney (MFA 1972) have each acknowledged the impact Held had on the development of their critical thinking and practice during their student years and beyond. This exhibition brings together works on paper by each artist, suggesting overlapping spheres of influence rather than linear attributions. Within the works on view, which date from 1963 to 2018, common themes emerge: the depiction of volumetric space, underlying or overt geometry, and the use of color as a structural element.

We had the honor of framing some of Al Held's work (including Midnight Symphony, pictured above) for this exciting exhibition, which runs from September 13th to October 27th!

Check out the installation view below, as well as some other Al Held pieces we framed:

Craig F. Starr Gallery is pleased to present Lucas Samaras: Photo-Transformations on view June 7 – August 10, 2018. Selected in conjunction with the artist, the exhibition features sixty-eight Polaroid photographs from Lucas Samaras’s widely celebrated Photo-Transformation series. Executed between 1973-76, these works have been described as “…the most uncanny, original representations of the self – especially the artist’s self, in all its glory and suffering (self-glorifying suffering?) – in art history.” [1]

Samaras was already known as a sculptor, painter, and performance artist when he began experimenting with photography. His first series of photographs, the AutoPolaroids (1969-71), were shot with a Polaroid 360 camera. Samaras said he was attracted to the Polaroid medium because it allowed him to be self-sufficient and gave him the freedom to be “my own critic, my own exciter, my own director, my own audience.”

 

We had the honor of framing Samaras' incredible work for this exhibition, which has been extended to OCTOBER 6th, so it's not too late to go enjoy it in person!
