Idelle Weber: The Pop Years at Hollis Taggart Galleries

Released: March 28, 2013

Hollis Taggart Galleries is pleased to present an exhibition of acclaimed Pop artist Idelle Weber’s work from the 1960s and ‘70s. Featuring more than 60 examples from the period, the exhibition highlights Weber’s talent as a keen observer of social life, her economic and eloquent use of form and color, and her ability to combine seemingly incompatible elements, such as hand-drawn patterns with manufactured materials. In her paintings in various media (gouache, tempera, watercolor, acrylic, and oil), collages, and three-dimensional plastic sculptures from this period, Weber depicts figures...


"Pulling at Polarities"

Pulling at PolarIties at Hollis Taggart Galleries

Released: April 30, 2012

When artists pull at polarities, they activate the pictorial surface, reshaping the creative process. The push and pull between the polarizing optics of black and white, the dichotomy between active gesture and flat ground, and the explicit contrast between tactile surfaces and crystalline flatness are hallmarks of much postwar and contemporary art. The tension that arises from this interplay carries the work to new realms. Exemplified by the paintings and sculpture in this exhibition, these seemingly opposing aesthetic approaches, rather than working against each other, act in concert to ...


Pablo Atchugarry - Soñando New York (Dreaming New York), 2011

Pablo Atchugarry at Hollis Taggart Galleries

Released: November 8, 2011

  A definition of the word "heroic" might include "epic," "larger than life," "impressive in size and scope"—all fitting descriptions applicable to the art of sculptor Pablo Atchugarry. Hollis Taggart Galleries is pleased to present the artist’s first New York exhibition. Uruguayan-born Atchugarry made his first sculpture in marble in Carrara in 1979; by living and frequenting the quarries there, he learned to love marble and “listen to its voice.” The artist, who has lived and and worked in Lecco, Italy, in the Lake Como region since 1982, uses marble and bronze to create pieces t...


"Gesture and Abstraction" - Installation view

Gesture and Abstraction: AbEx Gallery Selections at Hollis Taggart Galleries

Released: October 21, 2011

This exhibition celebrates the exuberance of gesture and innovative abstraction that came to define a central tenet of Abstract Expressionism. Often a balancing act between unbridled spontaneity and careful forethought, this body of work highlights the dynamic action painting that defined a new era in abstraction. With the primacy of the painted surface called to order, American postwar art took center stage. With work by Robert Motherwell, Jack Tworkov, Richard Pousette-Dart, Norman Bluhm, Sam Francis, and Mark Tobey, Gesture and Abstraction features paintings that explore unexpected color...
