Steven L. Anderson
46 Years (Tree Rings Series)

2015

About the Item

Steven L. Anderson 46 Years, 2015 marker and pen on paper 9.5 x 7.5 inches The Tree Rings artworks are made on paper which is torn and reassembled, scratched, and sanded. From there, they are built in perhaps the same way that trees grow: starting in the center, Anderson draws circles with markers and pens that closely follow the circle before it, expanding as the rings build and bring the form into existence. The markers and pens squeak, skip, and dry out, depositing ink on the paper’s surface or bleeding below. Titled after the number of rings/years, these meditations on growth and time hope to provide a larger context for our lives. Where do our own activities, lifespans, and histories fit into the recordings made by sawed-off trees? These drawings are at once a violent death, a time machine, a hypnotist’s tool, an energy vortex. Atlanta artist Steven L. Anderson works in a variety of media to explore the nature of power, and the power of Nature. He is a 2014–15 Walthall Artist Fellow and a Studio Artist at the Atlanta Contemporary. He has exhibited in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Miami, and Chicago.

  • BLUE JAY WAY
    By Christina McPhee
    Located in New York, NY
    BLUE JAY WAY, 2012 ink and graphite on Arches cold press paper 44.5 x 75 inches / 1130 x 1905 mm  unframed Christina McPhee’s expansive abstract paintings, drawings, photographs, and videos test or query how can we know, and who is we? Moving from within a matrix of measurement, observation and contingent effects, her work resists characterization as product, and continually accesses fields outside itself. For her, process equals trial. Her work emulates potential forms of life, in various systems and territories, from a perspective of the non-self– a world beyond identity. McPhee’s dynamic, performative, physical engagement with materials, in both her analogue and digital works, is a seduction into surface-skidding calligraphic gestures and mark-making. The tactics of living are in subterfuge, like the ‘dazzle ships...

  • Untitled, Design, Ink on Paper by Modern Artist Jogen Chowdhury "In Stock
    By Jogen Chowdhury
    Located in Kolkata, West Bengal
    Jogen Chowdhury - Untitled - 12 x 16 inches (unframed size) Ink on Paper, 2022 Signed in Bengali Style : He has immense contribution in inspiring young artists of India. Jogen Chowdhury had developed his individual style after his return from Paris. His most famous paintings are in ink, watercolor and pastel. He has painted in oil medium as well. In Chowdhury’s more recent works the sensory experiences of cloth, bolsters, sofas and the human body are cross-projected to produce an uncanny world of tran-substantiated tumescence and flaccidness. Jogen Chowdhury has been widely acknowledged to be, the master of the unbroken line. Like Léger, Chowdhury has been stirred by the linear Kalighat pat tradition, but his lines are emotive and used to express and suggest the character of a person. This is done by, distorting the form without breaking the line and in the world of young, contemporary art; distortion has been Jogen Chowdhury’s most significant impact. Perhaps, because of this, a common observation of his work is that his “people” are caricatures. The person feels familiar to the viewer but it is far more individualised – the face is imaginary but the psyche or characteristics are real. The power and beauty of his technique and line is this play between the known and unknown. In Jogen Chowdhury’s work, the figure is always in the foreground, it is primary, it conveys everything. He uses colour to give volume to his figures and the fluidity of his lines bring a sensual aspect to his forms. About the Artist and his work : Born : Born 1939 in Daharpara Village, Faridpur, Bangladesh. Jogen Chowdhury is an eminent Indian painter and considered an important painter of 21st century India. Family Background : His father Pramatnath Chowdhury was a Brahmin zamindar.
