NEW YORK, NY.- Nancy Margolis Gallery announces their winter show, a two-person exhibition of Charles Clary and Ryan Cobourn. Charles Clary is exhibiting paper wall sculptures and Ryan Cobourn is exhibiting a new series of abstract paintings titled, Pastorale. The exhibition is on view for a “Sneak Peek”, December 12, 2013 through December 21, 2013. The exhibition closes February 1, 2014.

Tennessee native, Charles Clary makes intriguing constructions formed by towers of layered, brightly colored paper. The sculptures, precise and labor-intensive, reveal a phenomenal color sensibility, and an original expression distinctly his own. Exact cuts and layered stacks of thin paper make up his geometric volumes of variegated textures and sinewy shapes. Forms are reminiscent of microbial colonies, sound waves, fractals and topographical landscapes. A palette of rainbow like colors playfully invite viewers to venture into the vivid creative world of Clary’s sculptures, ever-expanding, pulsing, and surreal. This is Charles Clary’s first exhibition with Nancy Margolis Gallery.

An abstract expressionist painter, Ryan Cobourn was influenced by the New York School, specifically the artists DeKooning, and Guston. Traditionally trained, Cobourn works from observation, memory and intuition ultimately leading to luscious reconstructed abstract expressionist paintings. His process is started with one or more exploratory drawings before the paint is applied to the larger canvas. The painting subject is not about specificity as much as an idea, or thought expressed freely employing Cobourn’s gestural brushwork and dreamy color palette. As one scrutinizes the artist’s canvas, shapes appear sometimes defining or suggesting where they begin or end, emitting throughout a mood modulated by brief meditative moments that erupt and engage. This is Ryan Cobourn’s first exhibition with Nancy Margolis Gallery and will show again Summer 2014 in a group show.

CHARLES CLARY received his BFA in Painting from Middle Tennessee State University and his MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
