Nash — on Varnot

On a recent visit to the studio of artist to Annie Varnot, I had the opportunity to view the artist’s biomorphic, landscape inspired sculptures, drawings, and photographs up close. I was instantly struck by the intensity of labor and craft that goes into her assemblages made from jewelry size pieces of cut drinking straws and the extremely detailed, lace cut-out drawings. The artist, who describes her goal as “creating an environment in which to be safe”, is approaching her project on a very intimate scale.

nancy hubbard for galleryELL
image: nancy hubbard, untitled 2007

[for nancy] … each piece starts with a hunch and grows from there. nothing is planned, leaving much to chance. sometimes this creates doubt, which forces her to make a decision; at other times it creates excitement, which compels her to try something new.
… in hindsight, chance doesn’t really play a role at all — in the end she can see that she knew where she was headed the whole time.

galleryELL welcomes melissa staiger

galleryELL would like to welcome our newest member artist, melissa staiger of brooklyn, new york. you can view her work at the galleryELL website.

melissa staiger
color is a remedy for melissa. for over ten years she has been painting in sequences of colors and shapes. her work is the human element tied with expansiveness.

this evolution begins with drops of paint created from a dropper, which are then configured into extended lines. the lines in this suite of drawings came from visiting upstate new york where melissa had time to contemplate quietness in the imagery of bare trees. the lines in the work are active yet quiet. the viewer negotiates through the negative space between the lines and in her color choices. she uses reds, whites, oranges, yellows and other neutrals creating these works through intuition and a collective knowledge of her experience.
