David John Gadd
Gadd was born in New Jersey in 1986. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2009 and maintains a studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. His work references and extends generations of great abstraction from DeKooning to Diebenkorn, to Stella, Tuttle and Ryman by combining the handling of ABEX, shaped formats, and the use of collage and embedding those formal elements with a deeply personal narrative and content. His work is fragile, violent, aggressive, and sensitive all at once, reflecting (literally, with his use of mirrors in much of his work), and sharing our complexity with an acceptance of all of what we are, and in the end, what makes us human.
Heather Morgan, painter chanteuse, is recognizable for sumptuous self-portraits and figure paintings that vibrate between an intimate vulnerability and potent self-possession. These works embody the beauty of struggle, the open hand of the artist as an artifact of investigation of material, substance and meaning. Morgan has had solo shows at Jack the Pelican in New York City, and at Ladengalerie in Berlin, and her work has been in group exhibitions at Steven Harvey Fine Arts, David & Schweitzer Contemporary, Lodge Gallery and Charlie James Gallery, among others.
