SALON ZÜRCHER, PARIS
OCTOBER 15 – OCTOBER 21, 2012
Créé à l’origine par Gwenolée & Bernard Zürcher au Zürcher Studio à New York, le Salon Zürcher Paris-NY est un concept de mini-foire alternative, low cost. Tandis que la première édition du Salon à NY en mars 2011 pendant l’Armory Show était qualifiée par le New York Times de « spirited selection », la seconde édition à Paris en octobre 2011 pendant la FIAC était désignée comme un « mini art salon » par le Financial Times. La troisième édition à New York en mars 2012 se rapprochait davantage de l’esprit du “salon d’art” en référence aux fameux « Salons » de Diderot. Pour sa quatrième édition à la Galerie Zürcher pendant la FIAC, le Salon Zürcher confirme cette conception d’une foire intime et sélective en invitant du 15 au 21 octobre prochain 6 jeunes galeries américaines émergentes déjà très remarquées à New York que le public pourra découvrir à Paris.
Vernissage : Lundi 15 Octobre / 17h-22h
Mardi / 12h-20h
Mercredi / FERMETURE (ouverture de la Fiac)
Jeudi / 12h-22h
Vendredi et Samedi / 12h-20h
Dimanche / 12h-18h

Through a process of cutting, decontextualizing and layering paper images, fabric, and other materials, I create fragments of interior and exterior landscapes. Elements of the human and the natural world are combined in collages and sculptures that explore the cyclical nature of life, death and decay, the states of change and flux beings exist in, and the possibility of transcending the earthly realm. Similarities are revealed between our structures and organs, and those of all things that grow. The processes of these internal mechanisms point to our lack of control over the fundamentals of life- our nature to grow, deteriorate and decay over time.

Patricia Satterlee is a painter who lives in Long Island City and works in Bushwick. Satterlee’s art seeks to capture the relational space that exists between objects. From her point of view, space is a cluster of particles that build form, which then dissolves. The artist’s paintings capture this ephemeral moment before it dissipates. The artist uses flashe paint to emphasize the austere flatness of the picture plane and then breaks that down further. Satterlee’s Painted Drawings-series (2006-2007) captures yellow lines that group together as odd, anthropomorphic forms over a light blue background. The Two Red Dot-series (2009) portrays two red dots of equal size, diametrically opposed among other spattered dots of similar but different hues. Each painting portrays the subject at different locations, expanding on the possibilities of balance within the genre of abstraction. In 2009 Satterlee’s work was featured at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Washington, D.C.

Dax van Aalten
Raised in rural America with no formal artistic training, van Aalten developed an attitude that resisted fashionable painting practices. Instead of flashy, pop-color abstraction, his work recalls Flemish and French painting from the 18th and 19th centuries. With a masterful surface and subdued color palette, van Aalten’s paintings update classical technical virtuosity with strikingly futuristic scenarios. Van Aalten has exhibited at Hansel and Gretel Picture Garden New York. His work is in the collection of the Museo Post-Postmodernism.
Tamara Zahaykevich’s humble wall-mounted and freestanding constructions are rife with autobiography and influences as multifarious as : Suiseki (Japanese Scholar’s Rocks), architectural maquettes, Mexican Handicrafts, the ceramic musings of Ken Price and the modernist inventions of Jacques Lipschitz. Shape and imagery reveal an acute personal inventory of experiences while still playing with and providing the foundation for an unwritten narrative. Zahaykevich manipulates and transforms the physical vulnerability of her material into a new way of objecthood that speaks just as much to the elemental tenants of formalism as it does to the urge for maximizing an aesthetic presence in the work and the physical space it inhabits.
Tamara Zahaykevich (b. 1971, Maplewood, NJ) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA. Zahaykevich also attended the Skowhegan School School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, ME and was a recipient of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Studio Fellowship. She has had solo and group exhibitions at KANSAS, New York, NY ; Gist Galerie, Amsterdam, NL ; Feature, Inc., New York, NY ; Jason McCoy Gallery, New York, NY ; Bronx River Art Center, NY ; Tony Wight Gallery, Chicago, IL ; Minus Space, Brooklyn, NY ; Giampietro Gallery, New Haven, CT.
Michael Berryhill’s studio practice is an intensive exploration of temporal production and the impossibility of painting. His recent paintings, sculptures and works on paper are informed by accident and recovery–an attempt to invent his way into meaningful mystery. Berryhill’s work isolates and creates memories out of nothing and in this way the viewer’s engagement becomes a shared experience with the author’s discovery. To this end, the artist finds solace with the process, abandonment, and fulfillment of painting. Through will and faith, Berryhill is loyal to an understanding and acceptance of why images should exist rather than disappear.
Michael Berryhill (b. 1972, El Paso, TX) lives and works in New York, NY, and Austin, TX.

- POCKET UTOPIA
Donald Steele is an award winning playwright who grew up in Buffalo, New York, just across from Ontario, Canada, and from an early age was aware of and interested in Queen Elizabeth II and the monarchy. His plays have been performed around the United Sates and in Canada, most recently at the Fringe Festival in London, Ontario. His plays have been published by Samuel French, Applause Theatre Books, and several monologues have been published by Smith and Kraus in its "Best of..." series. Some of his work can be seen and heard online. In a way THE QUEEN AND I images (of which there are over 300) provide or create a kind of dialogue or commentary that takes place between the viewer and the image as well as between the people in the image. He lives in New York City with his husband Roger Mooney.
« About THE QUEEN AND I images, I have had this interest in the royal family and the Queen for years. And I collected all those books about the royal family and then I got the waving Queen and a light bulb went off after I did some pictures of her up at the house in the yard and then I thought why not use some of those books and see what I come up with and that’s really how it got started. It’s also an extension of collecting the commemorative ware that I have. Plus I grew up in Buffalo just across the border from Canada and a man my father worked with came in every day from Canada and one time he gave my father a picture of the Queen that hung in our basement for years so every time we went downstairs there she was waving at us on our way to do the laundry.
But I also think it is something to do with our country not having any royalty other than movie stars. Plus I don’t remember not having the Queen. I was born in 1950 and she became Queen in 1952 and so she has always been there.
Plus I was going to be an art major and got side tracked by theatre so this is in a way a return to something that I used to do all the time growing up, making images - other drawing or doing linoleum prints or watercolors.
Plus the afternoon I started to make these was just a gas. I had the best fun. And it fed itself. And because I have all the images I can see the progression of ideas from taking the little queen out to the yard to putting her nest to some other royalty figures and then having the moment when I brought out the books and started to make the images that make up this collection. And getting the idea of turning her to face the real Queen taking her picture or looking at her with the binoculars.
I was always interested in fantasy - those Disney films from my childhood, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty. But I always felt comfortable doing art. It was sort of second nature. When I was in the 6th grade the art teacher thought showed some artistic talent and suggested I take classes at the University of Buffalo on Saturday mornings and because my father’s mother was a ceramic painter he understood that so it was okay that I wasn’t doing sports. »
Paul D’Agostino’s artworks embrace formal qualities and media that vary according to the language-based parameters or thematics active within a body of work. The yields of this process are sometimes collage and assemblage pieces featuring drawings and painterly elements as well ; at other times, drawing and painting in diverse media command greater formal presences. Among D’Agostino’s most recently developed processes is one that yields what he calls polytype monoprints with diminishing palettes, serialized oil-on-paper prints in which the terms of reference for the process and works remain questionable—an important element in this body, or these bodies, of work—and in which pictorial narratives often appear out of sequences that allow color, time, and subject to fade into and feed off of one another. For D’Agostino, the creation of visual artwork entails processes of layered renderings closely akin to acts of translation, and thus akin to writing as well. Artwork and language, in other words, dwell in coterminous realms in his creative sphere.
Paul D’Agostino is an artist, writer, translator and professor living in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where he also curates art exhibits at Centotto
In Addition to Donald Steel’s photograph’s and Paul D’Agostino paintings, Pocket Utopia will present French Engravings from the seventeenth and eighteenth-century. These include engraved portraits of painters and sculptors, kings and courtiers whose image quality is sumptuous, with deep contrasts, breathtaking gradations of gray and rich, and authoritative contours. These engravings are by artisans and are all from the French Academy who perfected one of the earliest forms of mechanical reproduction. The portraits are as diverse Louis XIV, the “Sun King,” as a shy six-year-old boy to a small portrait of Virginia Vouet, née da Vezzo (1606–1638), and the inscription in the oval surrounding her face identifies her as “da Velletri Pittrice,” or “painter from Velletri (Italy).”

- ZURCHER STUDIO
Les peintures de Paul DeMuro constituent une application logicielle basée sur le principe d’inversion de l’image photographique. Par un usage intuitif de la couleur mise en relief dans la pratique d’une peinture en épaisseur quasiment sculpturale, DeMuro cherche à mettre « la relation humaine » en connexion avec la machine. Pour lui, « le jour n’est pas si lointain où un programme informatique sera capable de reproduire ces messages les plus intimes – posts, pics, tweets etc – qui définissent notre identité sous la forme d’un algorithme dont la répétition à l’infini nous fera exister bien après que nous ayons disparu corps et bien. »
