In her first exhibit with the Daniel Cooney Fine Art gallery in New York City, Brea Souders presents “Film Electric.” The exhibit will be on view through March 2.
Composed from discarded film, static electricity and strong light, the photographs are tapestries of the artist’s personal history. They contain slices of forgotten adventures, portraits of loved ones and strangers, untold experiments and family vacations, as well as shards of unrecognizable shapes and empty spaces–memories alongside their absence. Together, the charged fragments merge in energy and light to create a different, new, and compelling narrative.

The large-scale figures in Maciek Jasik‘s series “Bypassing the Rational” were originally inspired by Post-Impressionist painting, and the images take viewers into an endless sea of color. The fine-art and editorial portrait says that with this series, “I am knowingly retreating from the details which draw and entice us, and which allow us to judge.” Jasik’s first solo show, scheduled to open November 1 at Daniel Cooney Fine Art in the Chelsea section of Manhattan, was put “on hold” as a result of the flooding and power outage to the building and the neighborhood during Hurricane Sandy.
Gallery owner Daniel Cooney reports that the show is up, and when the building can reopen, the exhibition will be extended after its originally scheduled closing date of December 22.
Like many gallery owners in lower Manhattan, Daniel Cooney continues to be in touch with collectors and artists. His online auction also continues: www.danielcooneyfineart.com/online_auctions.html

Carrie Levy, New York based photographer and photo editor, has her third solo show with Daniel Cooney Fine Art opening today on February 17th. Levy says, “Being a female artist and the authority behind this work, I chose solely male subjects in order to enhance the submissive nature of the imagery.
You Before All questions the line that separates pain from pleasure. The work magnifies how in the moment it is hard to decipher between these two very different emotions. Both are intense, but are very much the opposite of another. The aim in this body of work is to ask the viewer to uncover which one of these emotions is behind a single frame and where he or she is more sympathetic.” To see more of Levy’s work click here.
