Introducing Lori Cozen-Geller

As we enter the new year, we’re excited to share that we will be representing the work of acclaimed artist Lori Cozen-Geller.

Cozen-Geller seeks to provoke not our recognition of her specific impetus, but our grasp of form itself in the emotional context she gives it. In this respect, she breaks with minimalism and harks back to an earlier attitude about abstraction: the belief, maintained by the very inventors of abstract art, that, rather than telling stories, providing decoration, or physically defining space and substance, abstraction invokes sensation. What we see, Lori Cozen-Geller believes, is what we feel.

—Peter Frank, Art Critic

 

Lori Cozen-Geller is a California based artist known for her work as a finish fetish minimalist. Finish Fetish refers to an art movement that emerged in Southern California in the 1960s, primarily associated with a group of artists who were influenced by the sleek, polished aesthetic found in industrial and commercial finishes.

Cozen-Geller’s choice to finish her sculptures with high gloss automotive paint comes from a more personal place — her first work of art was conceived while grieving the loss of her beloved father, and the paint became a way to honor him and his passion for exotic cars. This blend of visually striking minimalism permeated with deep and complex human emotions is what makes Cozen-Geller’s work so unique.

 

Lori Cozen-Geller, Compatability, Blue
High Gloss Automotive Paint on Wood and Laminate, 48 x 24 x 4 inches

 

Compatibility speaks of finding balance in one’s life with regards to relationships. Individuality matched with perfect alignment is the message. Within a relationship, whether it is with a lover, business partner, or friend, finding the balance between maintaining one’s individuality while aligning with another’s views or emotions is a delicate task.

 

In regard to her philosophy on how she lives her life, Cozen-Geller says, “What would it feel like to take the negative feelings and negative influences and the powers that are around me and that are eating and driving at us, and moving them out into the air, creating an open void which could then be filled with positive thoughts.”

This life philosophy is visualized in some of her work that include open spaces, to allow “openness for positive to come in”.

 

Lori Cozen-Geller, Piece, Red
High Gloss Automotive Paint on Wood and Laminate, 24 X 24 2.25 inches

 

Cozen-Geller’s personal experiences form the inspiration behind her sculptures, but the work is more focused on the universal emotions shared by mankind, regardless of our life circumstances. For example, Piece, Red, the first sculpture she ever created, illustrates feelings of love and loss, while the Chatterboxes shown below represent human connection, and the innate need for us to connect through language.

Polished Stainless Steel, 5 X 5 X 5 inches

Peachy Coral Fusion

Christopher Peter, Flowing Cameo XII, Mixed Media on Panel, 26 x 26″ Framed

A Soft Glow of Color

Tom Chambers, Late for Dinner, Photograph on Aluminum, 50 x 50″ Framed

New Arrivals from Sherri Belassen

We’re excited about a new group of dynamic paintings by Sherri Belassen that recently arrived in our galleries. In her newest works, Belassen depicts a range of subject matter with vibrant colors and exaggerated, dream-like proportions. As always, Belassen creates unique compositions with her use of negative space, layering, repetition, brush marks, and palette knife scraping.

A Swath of Blue

Sherri Belassen, Cloudy Vision, Oil on Canvas, 60 x 60″

 

In Cloudy Vision, Belassen’s use of negative space creates a feeling of vast openness. The bull’s stance projects an aura of quiet strength; he becomes one with his surroundings as his horns curve over the terrain in the background and his hooves soften into the land below. Belassen uses repetition throughout the piece, with variation in shape and texture, to depict the clouds as well as the bull’s mottled markings.

 

Bold Contrast in Color

Sherri Belassen, Push Play, Oil on Canvas, 54 x 74″ Framed

 

Push Play captures a moment of carefree joy, suspended in time. The light blue expanse of sky stretches out across the entire canvas, providing a boundless backdrop to this whimsical dance with gravity.

 

A Whimsical Garden

Sherri Belassen, Soil Tiles, Oil in Canvas, 38 x 50″ Framed

 

In this piece, Belassen features oversized, playful flowers against a patchwork of colors. Each petal varies with texture, adding a liveliness and unique dynamic to the composition.

Insider Edit: What Tara’s Loving

It is a privilege to be surrounded by beauty and color here in the Haverford gallery. As an art consultant, I hope to share this very experience with every visitor.

The wonder of art is that it speaks to the soul day after day, and the right piece brings joy to our clients that lasts. In many ways we choose the art that surrounds us but more often, art chooses us—it speaks to us, it calls us by name, and it gives our eyes and hearts a place to rest.

Joseph Adolphe, A Message from Home No. 2, Oil on Canvas, 80 X 70 in

 

Joseph Adolphe | A Message From Home No. 2

The first time I stood in front of this painting, the word “benevolence” came to mind. This piece seems to speak to the mystery of how we find ourselves where we are, how we grow in wisdom as well as fragility. It recalls me to my need to be known and for my life to be carried in bigger hands than my own. With his bold brushstrokes, Joseph Adolphe draws us into an enigmatic teal sky with a gently floating message. What is that message for you?

Carly Allen Martin, The Botanist in Cobalt, Mixed Media on Panel, 61.5 X 61.5 Framed

 

Carly Allen Martin | The Botanist in Cobalt

This painting has such a free spirited, joyful presence in our gallery! But just behind the quick hand and youthful energy, one finds a deep cobalt blue background, a sort of gravity that enters the dance. Shades of violet punctuate the edge of the brush strokes, guiding our eye in a circular path towards an amethyst pool in the center of the piece—my favorite touch of the artist, as amethyst is long known for clarity, peace and intuition. What a juxtaposition amidst the flurry of color! But isn’t this how we often experience joy, alongside other emotions that ground us and keep us craving depth and meaning? Carly Allen Martin captures all of this in her art.

Alexander Sheversky, Red Tulips, Oil on Canvas, 40 x 60 in Framed

 

Alexander Sheversky | Red Tulips

A sultry, moody, rich black velvety canvas is the backdrop to springy tulips at the peak of freshness—a perfect example of classic still life paintings, reminding me all at once of the vibrancy and the transience of life. In this moment, the reds and peachy creams of the tulips seem to jump off the canvas. This painting evokes in me a feeling of gratitude for the beauty and abundance of the now, and a deep appreciation for all that bursts with life around me every day.

Enhancing a Focal Point

While we’re always sad to see summer go, we also can’t help but look forward to fall weather and all that it entails — like cozying up next to the fireplace with a warm drink and some friends.

Typically, a fireplace already feels like a focal point and hanging a beautiful piece of artwork above it is a great way to emphasize it in your space. Check out a few of our recent art installs over fireplaces below.

Exploring Mixed Media

Medium can play a significant part in the overall feel of a piece, and each one may speak to you differently. A look through our collection will reveal a wide range of artist materials including oil, charcoal, pastel, photography, bronze, fabric, graphite, ceramic, steel, and more. Many of our artists work in mixed media, a combination of more than one medium that can create a visually rich and dynamic piece.

Mixed media was first employed “around 1912 with the cubist collages and constructions of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, and [became] widespread as artists developed increasingly open attitudes to the media of art.” During this time period there was this exciting realization that, “essentially art can be made of anything or any combination of things.”Tate Museum

Below we’ve highlighted a few artists from our collection that use mixed media to infuse their work with visual and conceptual complexity.

 

MAURA SEGAL

Mediums: Acrylic paint, glue, and hand-cut paper

Maura Segal’s work will draw your eye in for a closer examination as you discover the hand-cut shapes which add a layer of dimension. These cut pieces are subtle at first glance but have an element of surprise when discovered and create a minimalistic texture that changes intensity depending on the light the piece receives. The ultra-fine, long continuous line is also made of thinly cut paper.

MERSUKA DOPAZO

@mersukadopazo

 

Mediums: fabric, hand-made papers, paint, gesso, and graphite

When Mersuka Dopazo isn’t painting, she is collecting textiles from around the world, a lot of them vintage. She incorporates these textiles in unique and surprising ways, not only using them for clothing but other elements in her pieces as well. She also integrates hand-made, natural papers, and children’s drawings.

DENNIS CAMPAY

Dennis Campay

 

Mediums: paint, graphite, oil pastel, and metal

Dennis Campay layers many different mediums into his work to create his expressive compositions. Working with board as a foundation, he’s able to include oil pastel, graphite, charcoal, screws and fine pieces of metal.

RAUL DE LA TORRE

@rdelatorreart

 

Mediums: paint and cotton embroidery thread

Raul de la Torre says that his work represents relationships and how certain people in our lives feel like they are part of our DNA. His pieces represent that idea through his use of embroidery. The threads mimic the paint that he moves down the canvas, highlighting many times how one color bleeds through another.

Hand Carved Framing with Marcie

At Merritt Gallery, we have a wide selection of frames, ranging from traditional to modern. In this video, Marcie selects a few of our unique hand-carved options to pair with Joseph Adolphe’s oil painting Equus No. 10.

When thinking of hand-carved frames, we may tend to picture something heavily ornate in style. While we love and carry many gorgeous ornately-styled hand-carved frames, Marcie does a great job of showcasing a few of our additional style options.

 

Although these four stunning selections are very different, they all do a wonderful job of elevating Adolphe’s piece. Which do you prefer? We’re always excited to see what speaks most to you and the work of art.

The Art of Rehanging the Gallery

Switching up the mood on this Haverford gallery wall

 

Art on the Move

From a practical standpoint, rehanging the gallery is an opportunity to showcase the many artists’ fantastic works that we have at Merritt Gallery. Because we offer in-home consultations and art showings for local clients, our gallery installations are anything but permanent. And as we share inventory between our three locations, the artwork is constantly on the move between Baltimore, DC, and Philadelphia.

Dance With Me by Charlie Bluett paired with Kadee Craft’s Colorfast series in Baltimore

 

The Process

The gallery needs to look cohesive and fresh, but we also strive for a variety of sizes, mediums, and representation for as many artists as possible.

For Mina, Chevy Chase’s Gallery Director, rehanging the gallery is a passion. When considering how she wants to lay out the gallery, she likes to have a story to tell. She says,

“Whether it’s the color palette, subject matter or style, I look for some sort of connect. Maybe I’ll have a canvas up and place a sculpture next to it. It’s to excite the eye. And sometimes the eye needs a place to rest, so a little negative space is important.”

 

Sherri Belassen’s A World Away, paired with three Nina Jun sculptures in Chevy Chase

 

The feel of a piece can change when placed next to different artwork. Our galleries are constantly changing and with that comes the chance to see the same work through a different lens or something completely different.

Tips On How To Create A Gallery Wall

If you’ve curated an array of beautiful artwork and are looking for a way to showcase it in your home, a gallery wall can be a fantastic option. They’re a great focal point for any room and perfect for someone with an eclectic mix of artwork.

As wonderful as they are, gallery walls can feel like a daunting puzzle to assemble, so we’ve put together a few tips to help get you started.

 

1) Variation is Key

Consider varying either subject matter, framing, size, or medium to increase visual interest.

 

2) Stick to Odd Numbers

Choose an odd number of pieces to help create a more dynamic layout.

 

 

3) Consistent spacing

While you’ll be varying other aspects of your gallery wall, make sure to the spacing between pieces consistent for a visually pleasing layout. Include an internal axis to have a feeling of cohesiveness.

4) Test it Out

Once you’ve selected the pieces you’d like to use, do a rough sketch with a pencil and paper. When you feel good about the sketch, lay the artwork out on the floor or create a mockup on the wall to get a better sense of how it will work. It will save you a lot of time!
