Love, Loss, Good Times and G(h)oasts have inhabited the work of David “Big Dutch” Nally since we met him in early 1991 at Freedman Gallery, Albright College. Nally’s re-accuring themes and rants about current events create artwork that captures memory and nostaglia in a lyrical and colorful array.

January in NYC

As Americana Week(s) are set to begin in a few days, we can’t help but get excited about all that is going on this month in NYC. We just got back last week from the amazing and intense deKooning Retropective and Diego Rivera Mural Exhibition at MoMA. We took a side trip to PS1 to check out some Emerging & Contemporary Art as well as soaking up some sky at James Turrell’s ongoing piece “Meeting” (below).

After packing up our art for the Outsider Art Fair next week, we are treating ourselves to a visit to The Metro Show, including booth talks by Allan Katz, Ricco Maresca, and a walking tour with James Brett (Museum of Everything). We will be thrilled to visit Luise Ross Gallery for the Jose Rivera Exhibit and the opening reception of Dubuffet and Art Brut at Ricco Maresca. Can’t wait to see everyone in NYC!

Harriet Wiseman | Family Portrait
19″ x 17 1/2″, framed, $3500.00

Harriet starts her work by blindly putting oils on a blank canvas, waiting for the canvas to reveal what is locked inside. She slips into an almost trance-like state and then throws herself into her work. She has no idea when she begins, what the end result will be. Most of the women and girls in the paintings have the familiar olive-shaped mouth and triangular-shaped face of the artist.

Comparisons are always made with the great artists, whether they were trained or self-taught. Sometimes, the elegant forms of Modigliani or the screaming compelling colors of Soutine can be suggested in Harriet’s work. Like many self-taught artists, The paintings are honest and passionate – perhaps reminiscent of German Expressionism with tenderness and feeling.

In her work there is a colorful patterning of clothing, drapery and fabrics, which make the paintings lively and almost fly off the canvas.
