NEW CANAAN, CONN.- Heather Gaudio Fine Art
announces its solo exhibition Jill Moser: Paintings & Prints being held April 16-May 28. An opening reception will be held for the artist on Thursday, April 21st, 5-7pm.
Explosions of gesture, line and color come together on grounds that are deceivingly plain suggesting empty space. Closer inspection, however, reveals carefully prepared surfaces on which barely imperceptible painterly inflections and echoes of gestural applications are set against more pronounced lines and brushstrokes. The final compositions are complex abstractions that arrive as contradictions of energy and quietude. Jill Mosers work is as fluidly expressed on canvas as it is in her printmaking. The New York based artist has had numerous solo and group exhibitions and her work is in notable private and public collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The National Gallery of Art, Yale University Art Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. Moser has also held several teaching positions and has been a visiting artist and lecturer in numerous institutions across the country.
The exhibition also showcases a suite of lively prints the artist created to benefit The Glass House in New Canaan. Executed in collaboration with the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, the suite of five carborundum aquatints draw inspiration from Philip Johnsons land-mark residence. The prints are abstract evocations of the surrounding landscape as experienced from within the Glass House. Entitled The Hours, each print in the ensemble is rendered with a unique, highly saturated ground signifying the changes in light and color as seen through the passage of time. The colors bring to mind Andy Warhols enigmatic Shadow series, an artist greatly appreciated by Philip Johnson. The Hours have been printed in an edition of five, and proceeds from the sale of the suites will benefit The Glass House. The project was underwritten by Heather Gaudio Fine Art.
