Group exhibition of mixed-media works on view at Pavel Zoubok Gallery
Installation view.

NEW YORK, NY.- Pavel Zoubok Gallery is presenting Supernature, a group exhibition of mixed-media works that explore the myriad ways in which artists interpret nature through the layered use of material and meaning.

Many of the works on view capture the abundance, grandeur and sometimes-apocalyptic qualities of nature through richly textured collages, assemblages and works on paper. This is epitomized in Vanessa German’s we are the animals are us too, two power-figures densely adorned with cast-off relics that are at once seers, protectors and gatherers. Another example is Zachari Logan’s surreal hybrid forms, which explore, as the artist states, the “queer embodiment of nature”: a fusion of the body and nature. Both artists explore nature as a mode of self-care and a catalyst for personal transformation, a theme that comes up in the work of Frank Moore, Aldrin Valdez, Eric Rhein and Donna Sharrett, among others.

These lush works are balanced with subtle, conceptually driven pieces that employ a restrained use of material and palette such as Leor Grady’s intricate yet discreet thread-based works, which echo the shape of bodies of water from his native Israel. Leaves, an installation of wire portraits on paper by Eric Rhein memorializes those we’ve lost to AIDS while Fluxus artist Geoffrey Hendricks’ observation-based watercolors of clouds reveal his life-long commitment to portraying nature and the sky. Each artist explores their own relationship to nature, revealing deeply personal and intimate connections to the world around us.

The exhibition includes work by Mary Bauermeister, Barton Lidicé Beneš, András Böröcz, Joe Brainard, Vanessa German, Leor Grady, Geoffrey Hendricks, Lisa Hoke, Amer Kobaslija, Jiří Kolář, Lance Letscher, Zachari Logan, Frank Moore, Lisa Nilsson, Javier Piñón, Mac Premo, Jon Rappleye, Eric Rhein, Donna Sharrett, Maritta Tapanainen, Kako Ueda, Aldrin Valdez, Paul Villinski and Mark Wagner.
