REVIEW: James Lumsden in Visual Art Source

June 29, 2018 - John Zotos


James Lumsden impresses with a body of work that pushes the boundaries of painting itself. These abstract canvases in acrylic, executed between 2013-2017, represent a bold and adept vision whose sense of color and form are mature, captivating and full of feeling. Lumsden lives and works in Scotland and has exhibited internationally throughout North America and Europe. The paintings here range from small to medium in scale and are realized through an ordered aesthetic process wherein dozens of crystalline films of gloss medium and pigment are layered, pulled, and arranged over the surface...

ARTICLE: TX Studio-Margo Sawyer in Arts+Culture Texas Magazine

June 14, 2018 - Leslie Moody Castro

It was a typical hot and muggy Texas day when I made the 45-minute drive from Austin to Elgin. I was on my way to visit artist Margo Sawyer for the second time, almost exactly one year after the first time I had been in her studio. Sawyer was recently named a recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in the Creative Arts, an award meant to help developing scholars and artists engage in research and creation. The fellowship is given to artists who have already demonstrated exceptional production and creativity in the arts, a distinction that can only be used to summarize the more than 30 years of Sawyer’s artistic production, her time as an educator, and her advocacy...

PRESS RELEASE: Eric Cruikshank - Paper Skies

June 1, 2018 - Holly Johnson Gallery

Holly Johnson Gallery is pleased to present Eric Cruikshank’s exhibition, PAPER SKIES, representing a selection of twelve, intimately scaled oil on paper paintings created during the past year. An opening reception will be held Saturday, June 30th, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery and it will continue through September 29.

The Scottish artist Eric Cruikshank is a modern painter. Born in a country and into a culture with a strong narrative tradition, his work departs from customary figuration, yet revels in the craft and artisanship of his chosen medium. While this embrace of non-figurative abstraction is thoroughly modern, Eric Cruikshank's devotion to his craft is conservative in the best sense...

REVIEW: Stuart Arends in THE Magazine

June 1, 2018 - Diane Armitage

Stuart Arends is fond of saying that he lives in the middle of nowhere. Ever hear of Willard, New Mexico? The landscape around the artist’s house is austere, almost barren, with a view of some mountains off in the distance. He is “off the grid and under the radar” as Christian Mayeur, the founder of Mayeur Projects, wrote in Arends’s catalogue for the exhibition Tin Man, Slabs, and My Father’s House. It’s as if Arends, in his choice of a site for living and working, deliberately wished to evoke the idea of stepping into a void in order to make the work—but a void that is in actuality a transactional space where objects take on subtleties of meaning, even if meaning is bracketed only by the specificity of materials…

Holly Johnson Gallery is pleased to present James Lumsden’s exhibition Reflexion, representing a body of work developed over the last three years. An opening reception will be held Saturday, May 19th from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, following the group show Manmade in 2016. Reflexion will continue through August 11.

Lumsden’s paintings continue to investigate how raw materials innate to the medium can be turned into something poetic – an object filled with light, feeling, atmosphere, and emotion. Led by his chosen medium and a deep understanding of the subtleties and contradictions of the painted surface, Lumsden expands the possibilities of the medium through adept experimentation...
