Exhibitionin Hudson, NY / United States
Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present a two-person exhibition with works by Erik Schoonebeek and Tamara Zahaykevich.
Schoonebeek’s paintings and Zahaykevich’s sculptures arrive at similar ends through different material means.
Schoonebeek‘s paintings on found materials (distressed book covers, discarded paper) build on existing patterns, marks and stains. Upon this stage, a new tableau emerges: a color fade becomes a wave, a line stretches and grasps as a hand. Silhouetting and blocking reveal as much as they conceal.
Zahaykevich‘s sculptures shimmy the wall or drape over pedestals. Their multi-colored forms and mottled surfaces have implied histories: A mangled crown, aptly titled “Corona”, could be a crushed relic from a bygone era. And yet it has been meticulously made from scratch, layer by layer.
New has become old and old has become new. A path to one provides a path to the other.
Erik Schoonebeek (born 1982, West Islip, NY) has had two solo exhibitions with the gallery. He received his MFA from Rutgers, State University of New Brunswick, NJ in 2011 and his BFA from State University of New York at New Paltz in 2006. His work has been at exhibited at Dorsky Curatorial Projects, NY; David Shelton Gallery, Houston; Rawson Projects, NY; Brick Walk Fine Arts, West Haven, CT; DNA Gallery, Provincetown; Geoffrey Young Gallery, Great Barrington and other venues. He lives and works on Brooklyn, NY.
Tamara Zahaykevich (born 1971, Livingston, NJ) had her first solo exhibition with the gallery in 2017. Other solo exhibitions include KANSAS, New York (2015 and 2011) and Bellwether Gallery, New York among others. Her work has been featured in many group exhibitions, at venues such as Tibor de Nagy Gallery and Feature Inc. She is a recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2007), Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Fellowship (2006) and has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony (1998) and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (1995). She lives and works in New York.
