NEW YORK, NY.- Lehmann Maupin announced the opening of two summer group shows at 540 West 26th Street and 201 Chrystie Street, New York, from 27 June through 16 August 2013.

The exhibition at 540 West 26th Street comprises the work of three artists – Hernan Bas, Anne Chu, and Klara Kristalova – connected by a shared interest in the wildly imaginative nature of storytelling, and the visual fusion of fantasy and reality in a narrative context. While all three artists look to literature as a primary source of inspiration, Bas’s fascination with the paranormal and bizarre traces back to his childhood; Chu draws from a wide range of cultures and eras, referencing ancient mythological and ritualistic tales; and Kristalova mines the lost territory of childhood dreams, memories and nightmares. The works on view include new drawings by Hernan Bas, completed during a recent residency at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas; a vibrant series of oil and egg tempera paintings, watercolors and sculptural works by Anne Chu; and a selection of glazed stoneware and porcelain sculptures by Klara Kristalova.

At 201 Chrystie Street, another three-artist exhibition exploring the role of perception and the innovative use of materials and technology to create meaningful experiences showcases new minimalist paintings by Mary Corse; a variety of wall works by Teresita Fernández; and two floor sculptures and a Pin River work by Maya Lin. Mary Corse’s monochromatic, white paintings reveal the artist’s ongoing exploration with radiant and reflective surfaces and reveal the subjective nature of perception in progress. Maya Lin’s use of technological methods to study topographical and geographic phenomena presents viewers with the opportunity to experience the natural world through a twenty-first century lens, and demonstrates the artist’s ability to translate the enormity of our world, in this case the Arctic, to a scale that is more relatable. Teresita Fernández's work engages the surrounding architecture and the optical effects of light and color to create subtle, meticulous works of art that reference the landscape and natural phenomena.
