The Gallery @1GAP at Richard Meier on Prospect Park presents "On the Margins of a Portrait"

BROOKLYN, NY.- The Gallery @ 1GAP announces the opening of its newest exhibition, featuring selected works by Nancy Friedemann. The exhibition is on display until August 2013, at Richard Meier On Prospect Park, 1 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, New York.

In her drawings and paintings, artist Nancy Friedmann borrows from an eclectic source including botanical illustrations, actual lace samples and depictions of lace from Spanish Colonial painting in order to examine the invisible paths of cultural memory born from her homeland in Colombia.

Friedemann-Sanchez' work has the influence of Minimalism and The Pattern and Decoration Movement. But, her aesthetic sensibility is rooted first, in the lace that women were trained to make at the beginning of the 19th century. Her art points to the passage between Modernism, patriarchy and what is personal and feminine; as she sketches the threshold in flux that signifies living with history, and in between cultures and languages.

Moreover, as a woman artist, to depict flowers and lace inside an art historical context and within a contemporary environment of art institutions and galleries creates a link to definitions about femininity and to their significance and hierarchy at the interior of mainstream establishment.

These drawings and paintings are created on materials like enamel on Mylar and dibond. Tiny brush strokes are laid down without possibility of erasure. The intention of each individual hand made mark is to reflect and connect to what is intangible. The work is not necessarily optimistic but maintains a desire to connect through imperfection, empathy, earnestness, not irony, seriousness, otherness, and yes decoration. If the work were an entity in itself it would think of itself as genderless and aiming to express humanity.

She was selected for the Elisabeth Sackler Feminist Art Base at the Brooklyn Museum. She is also a member of the Artist Pension Trust since 2009. She represented Colombia at the 20 Congreso Internacional: La Experiencia Intelectual de las Mujeres en el Siglo XXI in 2012 and represented the USA at La Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador in 2009. Some shows include the Portland Museum of Art; The Museum of the University of New Mexico; El Museo del Barrio, New York; Museo del Arte de Puerto Rico; University at Albany Art Museum ; Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango, Bogotá; San Luis Obispo Art Center, California; Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Friedemann has been awarded a Smithsonian Artist Fellowship; a Pufffin Foundation grant; a Pollock Krasner grant; a National Association of Latino Arts and Culture grant and has been nominated to the Rema Hort Mann and to the Anonymous was a Woman Foundation. She has been a resident at Art OMI, Fountainhead, Tamarind Institute, Yaddo, Gasworks, Bemis Center for Contemporary arts; Bronx Museum for the Arts, and Taller Arte Dos Gráfico in Bogotá.

Friedemann's work is in the collections of Jose Mugrabi, El Museo del Barrio, The Cleveland Museum, The Museum University of New Mexico, El Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Panamá, El Museo de Arte Moderno, Cali Colombia, and el Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Bogotá, Colombia. Her work has been reviewed by El Nuevo Herald, New York Magazine, The New York Times, Artforum; The Paris Review, Time out, Art Paper; Art Nexus; El Espectador and Revista Semana. She has a masters degree from New York University, 1997.
