Lawrence Fine Art is delighted to announce its inaugural appearance at this year's Scope Miami Beach, December 5-10, on the beach. A showcase for the best in modern and contemporary art, Scope will welcome more than 55,000 visitors, including top collectors, museum curators and the press. The Gallery’s booth number is B-37.
The gallery will present work by acclaimed photographic artist Howard Schatz, street photographer Judy Mauer, and multi-disciplinary, electronic artist Adam Daily. In addition, the gallery will present work by rediscovered master Elaine Wesley, photographic artist Phil Griffin and minimalist abstract artist David Einstein.
Whether as a fine artist, a portraitist, a journalist or a conjurer of advertising fantasies, Howard Schatz's work encompasses a remarkable spectrum of visual exploration. His work encompasses athletes and boxers; groundbreaking underwater studies; images of the homeless; exquisite studies of flora; and a wide range of other subjects.
Schatz has exhibited in more than 100 museums and galleries world-wide. He has published numerous books including the recent Kinky. He will receive the prestigious FOTOMentor award from the Palm Beach Photography Center in January
NYC-based street photography artist Judy Mauer shoots department store mannequins and the street life around them as reflected in the window to create a multi-layered narrative that is, at once, realistic and fantastical. Mauer does all her work in camera. There is no photoshopping.
Adam Daily's work spans a variety of media and techniques, including painting, photography and collage. Characterized by experimentation and innovation in production methods and materials, Daily often combines digital and hand made processes to create new and unique work. In 2011, he was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Fellowship in Digital/ Electronic Arts for a body of work combining photography, painting and collage.
2017 has been a watershed year for California artist David Einstein, with acquisitions by the Newark Museum, the Denver Museum, the Albuqeurque Museum, the Crocker, the Palm Springs Museum, the Reno Museum and the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art. He has two upcoming gallery shows and a career retrospective at the Triton Museum in early 2018.
Einstein's gestural absraction has a semiotic quality to it. It is a study of how meaning is created, not what is. Indeed, the artist calls himself "a mark maker," as much as a painter. His work is influenced by Japanese calligraphy as well as Hebrew script. He studied with the noted painter Brice Marden.
Elaine Wesley (1923-2007) was largely reclusive during her life. She left behind a treasure trove of work, including subtle, pointillist abstractions, often in concentric circles, with a surrealistic feel. This will be the first that that the works have been shown. She studied at the Art Students League with Nahum Tschacbasov and Henry Sternberg. Early in her career she exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the Brooklyn Museum and the Waverly Place Gallery.
British-born Phil Griffin, is a multi-disciplinary artist working in dance, film and photography. He has toured with and produced concert films and documentaries for, among others, Bon Jovi, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Prince and Jay Z.
Griffin writes of his photography: "I tend to work in very low light conditions - often almost a single light and even in what seems to the eye like the dark. I like the limitation, the mystery and the freedom of being lost and having to use my heart to find the picture."
