Gilles Gorriti & Paul Aïzpiri

Modern Disciples

Findlay Galleries in Palm Beach is proud to present a collection of distinguished works by Paul Aizpiri and Gilles Gorriti. Aïzpiri belongs to a special category of ‘Mediterranean artists’, painters whose work seems to glow with the beauty of Southern Europe. Aïzpiri always painted from the heart, his passion for nature and families evident in his artworks. Bold brushstrokes and bright colored palettes brandished in his vibrant figurative paintings are symbolic of his joy and satisfaction in life. His works are painted poetry filled with a glow of love with such motifs as children, bicycles, airplanes, birds, fish, and the sun, flying over the skies of Paris, Saint Tropez, and Venice. 

When he wasn’t painting, Gilles Gorriti enjoyed dining on the vibrant flavors of Basque cuisine and playing the flamenco guitar. Like Aïzpiri, he also shared a passion for bold, vivid color. In fact, color was of the utmost importance to Gorriti, more so than the subject matter of his paintings. As a colorist, Gorriti was a virtuoso at using the full range of his palette. He created subtle, unobtrusive fragments of delicate tones alongside vibrantly orchestrated blocks of color. Gorriti conveyed emotion and tone through color and the quality of his brushwork which alongside the simplicity of his subjects evoked a powerful impression on the viewer.


Noah Landfield

Recent Works

Noah Landfield was born and raised in New York City, in a Tribeca that was still full of commercial lofts and artists’ residences, rather than brimming with expensive boutiques and ordinary families. This was fertile soil for a budding artist. Landfield, a son and grandson of painters, naturally inspired and gifted, followed his family craft.

 

His work reflects the often volatile nature of metropolitan life. This reflection of volatility, seen particularly in the abstract foundational cloudbursts that fill his canvases, derived from his longtime fascination with volcanic activity. He utilizes impressionistic overlays of metropolitan architectural renderings inspired by his visits to Japan and his reaction to the compact urban environment of Tokyo and other major cities. Landfield’s paintings are redolent of the tension between man-made urban structures and the forces of nature and are also expressive of the way they manage to coexist. His execution of these ghostly images combines fine detail with broad sweeps of near abstraction in vibrant color. Questions arise through the unsettling nature of the imagery.  Are these images of the present, past, or future? Are they warnings? These temporal questions give a strong contemporary edge to Landfield’s work, as does his play with visual perception in the near-photographic quality of the cities he depicts, which are painted in a masterfully pointillist manner.

 

Noah Landfield is intrigued by the possibility of visualizing energy and time in an artwork; to play with the interchange between color vibrations and to allow the viewer to become the synapse between painterly elements, completing the energy wave. Mixing line, shape, and surface variation with highly saturated color and spatial imagery, the tension, and disparity challenges a viewer’s perception and asks them to look closer to figure out what he/she is looking at. This becomes the spark that contains energy.

 

Landfield received his MFA from City University, Hunter College in NYC. His work has been shown in numerous galleries in the US on both the east and west coasts.  He currently resides and works in Brooklyn.


Nicola Simbari

The Palette Knife Master

Nicola Simbari is a phenomenon in the world of modern art. For more than fifty years, he soared from one artistic period to another. Always succeeding brilliantly, he redefined the magic of color and form. Along the way, he took on his subjects as a panorama of everyday life. Sensuality becomes an overriding theme for Simbari, causing beauty and romance to reign supreme. 

As a painter, Simbari initially was interested in mainly the avant-garde movement. Braque was his first god, and later followed his admiration for Miró. Gradually, he became involved in an effort to tell a story with his paintings, so he changed to a more introverted approach. Meanwhile, Simbari began developing an admiration for Gauguin, Van Gogh, and de Staël. Gradually finding himself free from influence, he developed the style now recognized as Simbaresco. He began defining himself as a representational artist who went through numerous styles of painting including Abstract Expressionism and Geometric Abstraction, yet resolutely remaining a figurative painter due to his alluring fascination in people.

Throughout his travels, Simbari sketched incessantly in pencil or pastel. The paintings were done in his own studio under the strong light of the Italian sky and to a background of symphonic music by his favorite composers, which include Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, and Palestrina. Having been trained as an architect, Simbari handled his colors with an architect’s respect for the basic form. His paintings remained disciplined regardless of the brilliance of his colors and how freely he treated his subjects. His grasp of such essential elements in a subject enabled him to work freely and assuredly.

The entire world around him fascinated Simbari, and his subjects are all-embracing. The Italian countryside, the sea, flowers, native festivals, processions, café scenes, the Isle of Ischia, fishing villages, parades, boats on the seashore, lovely women in the sun, small coastal villages, gardens jeweled with flowers — all are part of his repertoire. No matter what the subject, in each painting Simbari embodies his credo which, in his own words is, “to express in the most satisfactory way possible, and as completely as you possibly can, your truest view, your truest feelings, about life and about people.”


Thomas Rouxeville

Conceptual Realism

Findlay Galleries proudly presents a new collection of works by a young and talented French contemporary painter, Thomas Rouxeville. Throughout his works, Thomas tries to symbolize our society: the fauna, flora, minerals and human activity, mixing representations of a precarious balance. He aims to mirror the instability of our current world, where men have disrupted the delicate harmony of Nature. For a moment everything stands still, and he reminds us that everything in this world is interconnected. If one thing falters – the rest will collapse in its wake. When viewing a Rouxeville painting we are asked to assemble precise narratives using highly realistic elements in conjunction with flowing and overlapping abstractions. Rouxeville also dabbles formalism, including elements that seem to jump from the graphic design world into his carefully crafted paintings.


Lluis Ribas

Moments

Findlay Galleries is pleased to present the works of Lluis Ribas, one of the master luministas of contemporary Spanish art. His profound knowledge of the secrets of light, shade, and opaqueness are present throughout his work. Ribas captures the most unique and tender moments when painting his subjects, creating depth, mystery, and emotion.

Mary Sipp Green

A Certain Slant of Light

Findlay Galleries is pleased to present “A Certain Slant of Light”, an exhibition featuring the most recent work of American contemporary landscape painter Mary Sipp Green. This exhibition title takes inspiration from Emily Dickinson’s poem, “There’s a certain Slant of light”, in which the poet describes the feeling of light and its effect on the viewer.

Sipp Green’s remarkable skill and craft is displayed in her skies and tranquil waters which are the embodiment of light and time.  Her works capture moments when the light is low and ethereal; at dawn and dusk, twilight and moonlight, when hard edges disappear into the nebulous atmosphere. She believes that these paintings are about looking at the secrets of light as it relates to the passage of time.

Charles Neal

Assembly of Time

Benefiting The Royal Oak Foundation Americans in Alliance with the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland

The intention of the collection is to portray the amazing diversity of properties that exist in terms of historical importance. The layout of the gardens, estates and their designs as well as the aesthetic values all make each place its own individual ambiance.

This exhibition being held in New York at Findlay Galleries is the first of its kind connecting with the Royal Oak Foundation and the National Trust and being represented in this format in America. The objective has been to effectively transport, by a material means, the essence of the National Trust – a much respected and loved national institution and what it stands for; to an American audience, and particularly to the Royal Oak Foundation membership who collectively, over decades, have supported, saved, and preserved the British heritage stock.
