Reception for the artists Saturday January 13th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
G FINE ART is pleased to have Civilian Art Projects curating a show in our project room from January 13 – February 10, 2007
Complimenting that show, G FINE ART will present all photography based work by an international group of artists in the main gallery space.
Chan Chao, born in Burma, is a Washington based artist, who until recently showed at Numark Gallery. Chao was represented in the Whitney Biennial of 2002. In that show he exhibited his Burma Guerilla Portraits. In this show are portraits of Greek Cypriot soldiers who are stationed at the border that divides Greek Cyprus from Turkish Cyprus. Chao shows regularly in New York, Washington and Los Angeles and is represented in the collections of the Whitney, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the Hirshhorn Museum.
Tim Hyde, born in 1969, lives and works in New York. He graduated with an MFA from Columbia in 2006 and is currently having his first solo show at Max Protetch Gallery, NY. Artificial lighting is the artist’s subject, depicting the landscapes of a Wal-Mart, a highway overpass or a stadium, shining into the night.
Luisa Lambri, born in Como, Italy in 1969, currently lives and works in Milan. She makes modernist photographs of modernist buildings, most of them well-known sites. She has shown world wide, most recently at Luhring Augustine in New York and with Ernesto Neto at the Carnegie Museum. She will be the subject of a one person show at the Baltimore Museum, curated by Darsie Alexander, later this year. She is represented in dozens of major museums world-wide
Miguel Angel Rios, born in Argentina in 1943, lives and works in New York and Mexico. Rios is known and appreciated in this area for his show last year of a two channel video piece titled, A Morir, at the Hirshhorn Museum. The photographs in this show are from a new five-channel video work titled, Aquí. These photographs silence the overwhelming sound of spinning and whirling tops associated with the videos and offer a still experience of the competition, power, violence, and chaos expressed in Rios’ work. Miguel Angel Rios has shown extensively in Europe, the US and South America
Hannah Starkey was born in Belfast in 1971 she received an MA from the Royal College of Art and currently lives and works in London. She has works in the collections of the Tate, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Castelio di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art. Starkey has shown at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, Maureen Paley Interim Art, the Berlin Photography Festival and the Netherlands Photo Institute. Her photograph in this show portrays a moment of quiet drama, touching upon areas that are familiar but unspoken.
Paul Vinet, born in Paris in 1969, lives and works in Washington, DC. Vinet has a MA from Ecole du Louvre in Museology. He has shown his photographs in Paris, Brussels and New York. These large format photographs depict crowds of people who have arranged themselves in a void.
Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 6pm
