  • Terracotta Daughters- Prune Nourry

  • Sep 10, 2014 at 3:00pm to Oct 4, 2014 at 5:00pm
  • Location: 104 Washington Street
  • Description:

    An army of young girls assembles in the first U.S. showing of Terracotta Daughters, a monumental exhibition of 108 life-sized and individually crafted clay sculptures that recall China’s famous Terracotta Warriors. Created by New York-based French artist Prune Nourry with expert craftsmen in Xi’an, this installation is a powerful investigation of the impact of gender selection in Asia and beyond.

    Prune Nourry (b. 1985) is a New York-based French multidisciplinary artist who is currently in residence at the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn. Trained as a sculptor, Nourry now also explores mediums such as photography, film, performance, and design. She draws her inspiration from themes surrounding bioethics, bringing attention to issues that arise from our fast-paced scientific discoveries, in particular, artificial procreation. Nourry was last seen in Crossing the Line 2011 with The Spermbar; prior to its US debut, Nourry showed Terracotta Daughters in Shanghai, Paris and Zurich.

  • Emmanuelle Tournois: A Gallery of Musical Icons

  • Sep 16, 2014 at 7:00am to Oct 7, 2014 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Brooklyn artist Emmanelle Tournois in Realms of Figuration. The exhibition opens on September 16 and run until October 7, with an opening reception on September 18 to which all art lovers are invited.

    About the Artist

    “I believe it is more difficult to make people smile and dream,” says Emmanelle Tournois, “than to make them feel sad.” So it comes as little surprise that her paintings, done mostly in oils and spray paints, are infused with a playful sprit. Depicting subjects that range from jazz masters to present-day rappers, she combines an ability to capture the personalities of the musicians in her images with a style that moves them into a mythic realm. She places each figure in a space that translates an artistic signature into physical form, giving her images the status of icons.
    In addition to her distinctive use of perspective and composition, Tournois also exhibits a strong eye for color. Contrasting shade

  • Sep 16, 2014 at 7:00am to Oct 7, 2014 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of French artist Lucien Tilly in Enigmatic Realms. The exhibition opens on September 16 and run until October 7, with an opening reception on September 18 to which all art lovers are invited.

    About the Artist

    Lucien Tilly’s mesmerizing paintings form scenes that range from abstract views of icy crystals to naively rendered hills and pastures, always portrayed through brightly colored dots of paint. For each piece, Tilly hand-mixes his pigments, creating the perfect combination of colors that, when used side by side, create both depth and flatness. He uses a wooden stick to apply each dot of color, never tiring of the process, and enjoying the sense of losing himself to the rhythm of the action. He finds it both calming and invigorating, and this feeling affects and infuses the resulting works.

    Tilly’s technique and his paintings more generally are inspired by the traditions of Australia’s Aboriginal artists, which have
