New York, 5 September 2013, Art Media Agency, (AMA).
An exhibition entitled “Fellows” opened on the 3 September and is to continue until 29 September 2013 at the Wilkinson Gallery, New York Academy of Art. It is to present paintings and sculptures created by former fellows of the academy Jonathan Beer, Aleah Chapin and Nicolas Holiber.
The exhibition is to present conceptually-based figurative art, showcasing three of the infinite interpretations of the Academy’s education in practice.
Jonathan Beer creates visually complex paintings which combine both cultural and personal references, whilst Aleah Chapin produces lovingly executed portraits of the women from her native town. Finally, works by Nicolas Holiber simultaneously present the notion of creation and destruction, featuring characters who are at once beautiful and repugnant, both exquisitely crafted and crude.
