Neeta Madahar at Julie Saul Gallery
Although Spring may be more than six weeks away, catch a glimpse of flora and fauna at a collaborative exhibition titled Pollination which combines cibachrome photograms from Neeta Madahar and the glazed ceramic sculptures of Christopher Russell. Both artists have taken nature as inspiration for their work, and their respective mediums and approaches create a beautiful symbiotic experience. The Julie Saul Gallery in New York hosts this exhibition, with an opening reception on January 8, 2009, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
Madahar’s work, Cosmoses, is a series of photograms created by arranging self-made origami flowers on photo paper. Though seemingly random and simple, this process is actually intensive and can thus be seen as a metaphor to the complexities of nature itself. Combining art with science, Russell’s sculptures depict a range of subjects from birds, bees and pollen in meticulous accuracy, and he even utilizes a golden glaze mimicking honey.
This exhibition marks Neeta Madahar’s third exhibition at Julie Saul and Christopher Russell’s premier. A limited-edition print from Neeta Madahar is available exclusively through Aperture from her 2003 series Sustanance.
