Colin Chillag’s exhibition has been extended through December 8! Very exciting to see these brilliant works in the upstairs portion of the gallery. Make sure to stop by and see the precise detail in person! #colinchillag

Inspired by found yearbook photographs, in “It’s Important to be Nobody” Colin Chillag distorts the features of school children, each of their bright eyes made hauntingly inhuman through his methodological build up of paint and dark, scratched color. Chillag’s work is now on view in the upstairs portion of the gallery through December 8! #colinchillag

In Katinka Lampe’s:" Let’s Change History” It is important to the artist that the models maintain their anonymity. Rather than portraying their own unique personalities, through the artist’s gaze they adapt a role used as a catalyst for viewers to reflect on their own lived experience and stories #katinkalampe #lesgalleries

Lush in tonality, Katinka Lampe’s paintings evoke the luminous quality of her 17th century Dutch predecessors, albeit with thoroughly modern subject matter. @katinkalampe

Examining the psychological space of social structure in schools and the inclination for children to stay under the radar, Colin Chillag distorts and removes elements of the portraits; as if the subjects themselves are in the process of transitioning into physical invisibility. #colinchillag

There is a great deal of tenderness in Katinka Lampe's renditions of each figure, and by extension each story. Through the artist’s depiction, a strong sense of emotion, expression, and meaning is conveyed through the artist’s refined method for capturing subtle gestural details. On view through October 13th @elizabethhoustongallery #katinkalampe

Though anonymity is an important aspect of the work in Katinka Lampe’s “Let’s Change History”, the subjects are based off of a range of identities from Lampe’s niece and daughter, to actresses and models of varying racial backgrounds. The tenderness towards all of the figures featured is apparent in the artists’ depiction. #katinkalampe

In her three-dimensional works, Rachel Hellmann demonstrates the use of unassuming techniques that emphasize simplicity of form and bend the limits of the medium of painting by using light and shadow to orchestrate dialogue between perceived and existing space. Rachel Hellmann’s work will be on view at the Swope Art Museum in November and a solo-exhibition of her work will open in our gallery in January! #rachelhellmann #swopeartmuseum #upcomingexhibition

"In my sculptural pieces, I really focus on merging the worlds of painting and sculpture. In these pieces, I use light, shadow and dimension to defy the weight of the solid wood construction. I think of them as being in constant flux – always reading slightly differently depending on angle of view and lighting of the piece. “ - Rachel Hellmann on her work from a recent piece in @bostonvoyager . Rachel’s work will be on view at our gallery in January 2019 and is currently being exhibited at the Swope Art Museum! #upcomingexhibition #elizabethhoustongallery #swopeartmuseum

In "It’s Important to be Nobody", Colin Chillag’s hyperrealistic techniques are pushed into the computer age, yielding a series that is at once off-putting and captivating — a contradiction not unlike the central thesis of his most recent work examining the lure of slipping under the radar. #colinchillag #elizabethhoustongallery

Repost from @artforum - thank you for featuring work from Colin Chillag’s “It’s Important to be Nobody” ・・・ Colin Chillag, Portrait of a Girl 1, 2018, oil on canvas, 24 x 18" @elizabethhoustongallery, New York through October 17. @colin.chillag #colinchillag #elizabethhoustongallery #newyorkshows

Katinka Lampe’s paintings evoke the luminous quality of her 17th century Dutch predecessors, albeit with thoroughly modern subject matter. Her figures are set against stark backgrounds of color and the clear delineation between figure and background further enhances the ethereal essence of her work.

Passing under the radar is a survival tactic for many young people. In “It’s Important to be Nobody”, Colin Chillag explores ideas of childhood anonymity and fitting in through image manipulation, subtraction, and destruction in his depictions of school portraits. #colinchillag

Thank you #dutchcultureusa for your post! Please join us tonight from 7-9 pm for the opening of #katinkalampe Exhibition #letschangehistory

For his first solo show in New York, Colin Chillag finds focus in the concept of being nobody through his deconstructed paintings of school children. “It's Important to be Nobody” is a take on both the Buddhist inspired interpretation of nothingness, and the Nihilistic comfort of powerlessness. If in the area, stop by to see these paintings in person at our opening tonight 7-9pm! #colinchillag #elizabethhoustongallery

Colin Chillag’s abstracted interpretations of anonymous school children provide a dream-like, nostalgia-infused window into past reality. The flat shapes and Iinework scrawled throughout the paintings provide a “first person prelinguistic commentary”, akin to child-like scribbling, that contrasts the other more hyper-realistic renderings. “It is Important to Be Nobody” opens September 5! #colinchillag

Katinka Lampe traverses the realms of figurative, expressionist, and abstract painting in her soft, yet uncanny, portraits. In her depictions of young-adults, the artist explores themes of universality, cultural connectedness, and diversity. Katinka Lampe: Let’s Change History opens in the gallery September 5! #katinkalampe

Although photography in general tended towards the documentary in the 1940s, Siskind brought photography into the fold of feeling—and contemporary painting. The only Abstract Expressionist photographer, he transformed the world as it presented itself to his camera into nonrepresentational abstraction, bridging the two as if by miracle. #aaronsiskind

#Repost @photolucida with @get_repost ・・・ Today’s 2017 #criticalmasstop50 feature is the work of Daniel Coburn and his image, “Emulsion”, from the series “Becoming a Specter”, which is currently on display at @elizabethhoustongallery in NYC! If you are in the area, don’t miss it! . . . . . . . . . “Becoming a Specter - Consider the mind and body as a parchment that is scribed, erased, and scribed again—used and reused in perpetuity until its fibers begin to unravel and fall apart. Each layer is affected and shaped by the previous—partially healed—but forever bearing the wounds of its history. A psychological estrangement has occurred: a cavernous fissure, a misunderstanding and an ultimate rejection of the teachings of my ancestors. Their ideologies are largely rooted in fear—a mode of self preservation designed to protect them from those that are different—from the unknown. My only fears manifest in tandem: I fear from where I came—I fear what I've become. This is a knee-jerk reaction. This is narcissism. I am a con man. I am a soothsayer. I wield the camera as my scepter, harnessing light—conjuring images from the past—selling you images of the future. I am selling you truth. I am lying to myself: I am a child—I am a man—I am a woman—I am but a shadow.” — @danielwcoburn . . . . #photolucida #criticalmass #contemporaryphotography #fineartphotography #filmphotography #danielcoburn #elizabethhoustongallery #nycgallery #successstory

This photograph from Daniel W. Coburn’s series “Becoming a Specter”, was one of our favorite and most memorable images from this years iteration of FotoFest. This expansive series channels sentiments that mingle the domestic with the celestial, and life with death. Coburn, who researches and carefully constructs every image, mingles the mysterious space between subjecthood and objecthood to intoxicating and alluring effect. #fotofest #danielwcoburn

“As soon as I became familiar with the camera, I was intrigued with the possibilities of expression it offered. It was like a discovery for me.” – Aaron SiskindAaron Siskind’s work revolutionized the photographic medium by offering a new way of viewing the world through a camera lens. Before him, photographs tended towards the documentary and representational. His foray into photographic abstract expressionism provided an entirely new perspective. #aaronsiskind
