Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to announce the 2012 Summer Group Exhibition showcasing 16 artists, including established gallery regulars and newcomers. This presentation will feature painting, sculpture, and drawing, with works by the following artists:

Alfred Steiner | Clayton Brothers | Cleon Peterson | Damon Soule
Daniel Rich | David Ellis | Ian Francis | Jean-Pierre Roy
Kris Kuksi | Mars-1 | Oliver Vernon | Pema Rinzin
Riusuke Fukahori | Tat Ito | Tiffany Bozic | Tomokazu Matsuyamaÿ

Showing for the first time at Joshua Liner, the Southern California-based Clayton Brothers (Christian and Rob) draw inspiration from their immediate environment, incorporating local businesses, neighborhood regulars, and snippets of overheard conversations as subjects for their paintings. Composing their pieces conjunctively-motifs, gestures, places, and figures reoccur within different works, creating inter-linked dramatic scripts. The duo received their first major museum exhibition in 2010 with Clayton Brothers: Inside Out at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMOCA) in Madison Wisconsin.

The German-born, Brooklyn-based painter Daniel Rich will also be showing for the first time at the gallery; known for his matte-flat interpretations of photojournalistic images, Rich will include the painting BT Tower London—a seductive, large-scale close-up of the famous telecom tower—which will be featured in the fall exhibition Daniel Rich: Platforms of Power at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Additional newcomers to the gallery include Alfred Steiner, whose delicate watercolor on paper works depict a mashup of plant, animal, and human anatomy with objects from material culture; Jean-Pierre Roy’s futurist/fantasy landscape paintings; hyper-stylized graphic abstractions by painter Mario Martinez (aka, Mars-1); and works of 3-D painted fish encased in resin by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori.

Summer Group Exhibition will feature gallery regulars, including painters Tat Ito and Tomokazu Matsuyama, whose colorful, large-scale works blend contemporary hard-edged abstraction with traditional Japanese motifs. Also on view will be works of sculptural assemblage by Kris Kuksi as well as paintings by Cleon Peterson, Damon Soule, David Ellis, Ian Francis, Oliver Vernon, Pema Rinzin, and Tiffany Bozic.

Joshua Liner Gallery, located in New York City’s Chelsea Arts district, presents an exciting roster of established and emerging artists from North and South America, Asia, and Europe.
