“Fractured Aviary.”
“Fractured Aviary” is a group exhibition presented by Antler Gallery & Talon Gallery, co-curated with Bayla Arietta and in collaboration with Yale University opening on Thursday, June 30th, 2022 in Portland, Oregon.
For the past year and a half, curator and artist Bayla Arietta has been working on an ongoing research project collecting data on bird window-strike casualties in the city of New Haven, Connecticut.
Working with other collaborators, including ecologist Dr. Andis Arietta, and the Executive Director of the Law, Ethics & Animals Program at Yale Law School, Viveca Morris, the project has unearthed the heart-breaking story highlighting the impact our built structures have on bird populations. It is estimated that over one billion birds die each year in the U.S. from window strikes. The group has decided to use the data they collected to pressure cities into re-examining their building ordinances and consider bird friendly designs.
One important aspect in the process of translating data from scientific information into something people can connect with and act upon is the ability to tell a compelling story. With this exhibition we hope to help build this narrative by showcasing works that focus on the beauty and fragility of bird species while also reckoning with the negative contribution of our own built environment, and the choices we make in constructing it, upon them.
Bayla applied for and won a Law, Ethics, & Animals Program (LEAP) Grant that is in place to advance understanding of, and draw attention to the urgent threats facing non-human animals. As a venue that consistently showcases nature based art, we’re so excited to embark on this co-curated exhibition. Together we have assembled a roster of over 60 established artists and asked them to create work which furthers the cause of raising awareness around this issue.

Jesse Mockrin.
Exemplary contemporary works by Los Angeles-based artist Jesse Mockrin.
Jesse has said of her work, “I want to explore things that aren’t so much tied to my experience but to the history of images, the images that we consume and larger societal questions.  People talk about making the personal universal but I am actually more interested in the public record.”

Savanna Judd.
Phenomenal illustrations and paintings by artist Savanna Judd who seeks to “bend light, build atmosphere, and capture the liminal quality of a place alive in the absence of people.”
Savanna explains, “These places represent a threshold where humans pass and leave imprints or relics. They evoke the feeling of looking into a portal before entering.”

“Things That Go Bump In The Night.”
Ben Cabral and Griffin Goodman offer up a duo exhibition diving into childhood memories, traumas and nostalgia through densely referenced imagery and history.  “Things that Go Bump in the Night” opens Thursday, June 23rd, 2022 at Moosey Norwich in Norwich, England.
Often humorous and sometimes unsettling, the show takes us back to our pre-teen bedrooms, the lights off, trying not to be scared of the commotion happening in the darkness. “We worked on the same size surfaces to bring cohesion to the show and dealt with similar themes that connect the work closely. This exhibition centers around childhood trauma, boyhood, our childhood bedrooms, and pop culture from when we were kids. Such experiences are behind the formation of the expression "things that go bump in the night," which refers to ghosts or other supernatural beings that are believed to be the source of frightening, unexplainable noises heard at night,” Griffin Goodman tells us.
On his process for this exhibition Ben Cabral says, “in the early days of pandemic lockdown, due to limited studio and materials access at this time, I began painting with a monochrome palette. For this show I wanted to return to that way of making in an expanded way, and consider what can be accomplished with this more constrained approach. I utilized the visual language of children’s media – books, movies, tv shows, and video games – where scary things never actually pose a serious threat. I want to draw on the nostalgia of that cozy spooky feeling of reading with a flashlight under the covers, just a little too scared to sleep, but knowing everything is going to be alright.”

Pejac’s “WELCOME.”
Spanish artist Pejac’s latest installation work, “WELCOME,” in Aberdeen, Scotland.
For this latest installation, Pejac chose the entrance of a building in the very centre of the city of Aberdeen. This property was specifically chosen because it hosts many charities as well as homes for vulnerable residents facing social exclusion.
The multitude of tiny figures that make up this doormat come together to stand for every aspect of the WELCOME concept, the meaning of which has been increasingly hard to find recently.
The message is one of dignity, understanding that those who have been pushed to the margins of society can recognize the importance of an open and heartfelt welcome more than anyone. It reframes the potential of those who have been discriminated against and in some sense stepped over by society, and presents them as united and proud.

“Small Works” at Beinart Gallery.
Currently on view at Beinart Gallery in Melbourne, Australia until July 10th, 2022 is the group exhibition, “Small Works.”
This show is one of Beinart Gallery’s most anticipated: it allows them to bring to you works from as many artists as possible in a single show, since each piece is under 12” by 12” and it’s a chance for artists to create art at a scale they might not otherwise use.  It’s also a ripe opportunity to grab an affordable piece to add to your own collection.

Scott Breton.
Astounding works by Brisbane, Australia-based artist Scott Breton.
Influenced by an array of subject matter, Scott’s paintings evoke futuristic dreamscapes as well as metaphorical instances of change and growth.
“Using a range of traditional drawing, painting and sculpting media as well as exploring digital counterparts to these,” Scott explains and that he “sees plastic composition rather than any particular media as the core of the classical ethos [and how its] sense of plasticity can be utilized by the contemporary artist.
“This endeavor seems to closely mirror a more general exploration of how the specifics of the contemporary human experience relate to and can be informed by insights about the human condition that have emerged across all of human history.”

Kimberly Dow.
Alluring realist figurative works by artist Kimberly Dow.
Kimberly says of her paintings, “often my themes are women’s lives, secrets and empowerment. I love to celebrate people, but women especially – and do it with playful exuberance. I will also occasionally tackle a social issue, but most often it is deeply personal stories I am attempting to convey.”

Marie-Claude Marquis’s “Inner Romance.”
Opening on June 18th, 2022 at Harman Projects in New York City for their grand opening is artist Marie-Claude Marquis’s solo exhibition, “Inner Romance.”
Through her bold and honest statements appearing as hand painted text on the surfaces of nostalgic vintage plates, Marquis finds common ground with the viewer.  Not only do these familiar objects feels as if they have been conjured directly from an old memory, but the artist’s text reflects many of our inner most thoughts and feelings.  Commenting on society, sexuality, and a host of topical themes, her irreverent typographic interventions take on new meaning when paired with their more traditional canvases.
For “Inner Romance,” Marquis’s work has shifted in focus from themes of interpersonal love to self love.  After several exhibitions exploring ideas relating to dating and breakups; “Inner Romance” is a reflection on the artist’s newly developed relationship with herself.

Jennybird Alcantara’s "Minding the Beasts While Polishing Pearls.”
Currently on view at KP Projects in Los Angeles, California is artist Jennybird Alcantara’s solo exhibition, “Minding the Beasts while Polishing Pearls.”
Jennybird says of the exhibition, “This new body of paintings was born in a still moment in time, one where the entire world slowed down. Where my home, that we call “The Birdsnest,” and the garden around it became my whole world for a time.  
Nature always informs my artwork, and I was lucky enough to enjoy that nature just outside my door, in the garden of beautiful trees, plants and flowers shared with squirrels and crows, song birds, bees and butterflies. At some point during this creative journey I feel like I packed up some of those outside inspirations and dragged them into “The Birdsnest” with me and a dialog between interior and exterior began.
I like to line my inside “nest” with curiosities and talismans, symbols, images, patterns and handmade objects. Having a lot of visual information inspires me. I like to set up tableaux between objects inside, so new relationships and meanings can unfold before my eyes.
The evolution of “Minding the Beasts while Polishing Pearls” happened within the backdrop of my interior world when the exterior garden where my creatures often live inserted itself, and a marriage of the two was formed.”
