BDG’s Spring Collective features works by established BDG artists Joseph Adolphe, Elizabeth Allison, Beth Carter, Quentin Garel and Jason Yarmosky. The show also introduces two talented new artists to BDG: Federico Infante and Peter Martensen.

BDG is excited to present works by Federico Infante, a young Chilean artist. Born in 1982, Infante received his BFA from Finis Terrae University (Santiago, Chile) in 2002 and will graduate in Spring 2013 with his MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York. He was the recipient of the Uanlane Foundation Scholarship (2012), the Conicyt Scholarship (2009), and the Juan Downey Grant (2004). He has had several successful solo and group exhibitions in Chile. BDG is proud to introduce his distinct work to New York City. His oils on paper are unique in their juxtaposition of abstraction with figurative and detailed architectural images. From a hazy, unclear mist, a figure holding a musical instrument might emerge. From the darkness, we might see a set of stairs, rendered with incredible precision, leading into the unknown. He seamlessly blends the genres together to create stunning works on paper.

BDG also warmly welcomes Peter Martensen, born in 1953 in Denmark. Martensen studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Odense, Denmark from 1971-1977 and consequently studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen from 1982-1984. He currently lives and works in Hellerup, Copenhagen. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Europe and his work is in several prominent public collections, including the Statens Museum in Denmark and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. His oil on canvas works recall Thomas Eakins and Edward Hopper but they have a style distinctly his own. Using a limited palette of subdued colors, Martensen confronts the modern, urban world and the isolation and loss of individuality that is possible within such a crowded space.

Joseph Adolphe’s newest works include large-scale flowers, plants, a stunning rooster and a new bull. We have beautiful new watercolors by Elizabeth Allison in her signature style but with a fresh exploration of subject matter and composition. Beth Carter presents her collection of bronze and resin minotaurs, horses and winged creatures in all sizes- from the smallest to over 7 feet tall, each with the poignant vulnerability her work has become known for. Quentin Garel’s bronze animal busts and skulls continue to draw people in and provoke curiosity. Finally, Jason Yarmosky, another fairly new addition to BDG, presents evocative portraits of his grandparents celebrating aging in youthful costumes from ballet tutus to superhero disguises.
