A solo show by Neil Anderson featuring prints by Donald Judd opens at Bridgette Mayer Gallery
Neil Anderson, Earth Song #9 for Bill D, 2013, oil on linen, 68 x 48 inches.

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Bridgette Mayer Gallery presents the newest works by the distinguished contemporary abstract painter, Neil Anderson. Earth Songs: Architecture of the Plane, will be on view from March 4th - April 19th 2014. The exhibition will feature some of the most prominent recent works, from his Earth Songs series.

Predominantly concerned with the flatness of the picture plane, Neil Anderson uses nonrepresentational formal expression as the instrument for his artistic process. Beginning by photographing segments of organic objects and projecting them onto the canvas, Anderson then applies color to the fragmented web of outlined shapes in a series of continually refined layers. Over the past few years, Anderson has gravitated to a more refined, minimal expression of form and space. In, Earth Songs: Architecture of the Plane, the intuitive and improvisational nature of the artist's process is revised, revealing a refreshing coalescence. Though the works are non-representational, their two-dimensionality along with the colors and the forms they create become the subject of the works. The artist states, "Ultimately, the meaning of the painting arises from the unexpected occurrences of formal arrangement that happen in the process of working toward a conclusion where all the parts will become interdependent." Earth Songs, is a series of works influenced by music and nature. Each painting embodies a different "song", celebrating our foundation, the earth.

Neil Anderson has shown his works at a number of spaces including Fischbach Gallery (New York, NY), Center Gallery (Lewisburg, PA), Gettysburg College Art Gallery (Gettysburg, PA), Michelson Gallery (Washington, DC), Larry Becker Gallery (Philadelphia, PA), and World House Gallery (New York, NY) among many others. He has been featured in various printed publication including The New York Times, Arts Magazine, ARTnews, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and The Weekly Press. Anderson currently lives and works in Lewisburg, PA.

"In the Vault" - Prints by Donald Judd
In addition, Bridgette Mayer Gallery will display six etchings by Donald Judd. Arguably one of the most important American artists from the post-war period, Judd's work represents the pinnacle of pure line and form. Most known for his large scale sculptures, these two dimensional pieces allow the viewer a more intimate experience with the artist's work. The etchings come from Untitled 1977-78, a suite of sixteen works that was originally intended to be a body of 75 prints but was never completed. Coupled with the vibrancy of Anderson's paintings, the prints act a resting spot for the eye and create a visual conversation of postmodern and contemporary abstraction.
