ALMINE RECH ANNOUNCES REPRESENTATION OF EXPRESSIONIST AND DEVOTIONAL PAINTER GENESIS TRAMAINE
Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary Newark-based artist Genesis Tramaine in Europe, the United Kingdom, and Asia. Almine Rech will also be working in with the artist in the United States in partnership with Richard Beavers Gallery (Brooklyn), who has represented Tramaine since 2018.
Through a mixture of acrylic and oil-based paintings, Genesis Tramaine (b. 1983) creates abstract portraits of men and women who transcend gender, race, and social structures. The blueprint of Tramaine’s style is rooted in a strong mix of 1980s New York graffiti and imagined images of gospel hymns sung on Sunday morning during church.
Tramaine paints with a confrontational and provocative use of color and through an urban-inspired, mixed-media approach. Her work is deeply invested in capturing the emotions and experiences of Black Americans, layering brushstrokes to reveal faces that reflect real moments and imagined metaphors. Tramaine’s work is also powerfully influenced by Bible verses and other readings she studied in church. Her spiritual influences have a strong impact on the composition and depth of her paintings, which explore deeply human themes including ethics and insanity, the mundane and the inhumane, spirituality, sexuality, and sentimentality.
Born in Brooklyn, NY, Tramaine earned her M.S from Pace University and B.S from Utica College of Syracuse University. Tramaine has exhibited nationally and internationally, including an inaugural solo exhibition with Almine Rech in London in February 2020, ‘Parables of Nana’, as well as exhibitions at Richard Beavers Gallery, Brooklyn, NYC; The Tree House, Governors Island, NYC; The Salt Space, Chelsea, NYC; The Raging Spoon Gallery, Toronto, Canada; AOF Gallery, NYC; and more. Her work resides in prominent museum collections including the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), Miami and the Contemporary Art Foundation, Tokyo.

Chloe Wise: Second Nature / Online Viewing Room
August 3 - 13, 2020
The late French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu intervened within the discourse of consumption habits in his landmark study Distinction: A Social Critique of the Judgment of Taste (1979), a text that is essential reading for the lovers and collectors of Chloe Wise’s work.
Second Nature focuses on small scale micro portraits, a departure from Wise’s larger scale group paintings. Wise’s first digital show, an experiment in widespread accessibility where space is further collapsed, is an outcome of a health and geopolitical crisis that has compelled us to question our own values, pleasures, and desires.

From Nathaniel Mary Quinn
« As I am moved, enriched, empowered, and inspired by the courage and fortitude of the brother Dr. Cornel West, I write: The murder of George Floyd was practically a public lynching, giving rise to heightened protests and mass demonstrations throughout America — and, indeed, in many parts of the world — highlighting, at last, that America has proven to be, on many levels, a failed social experiment. The world is undergoing and witnessing America’s great moment of reckoning, where the long-standing correlation between the local and the global are most remarkably felt: sowing the seeds of unchecked greed that made concrete domestic inequality in tandem with America’s imperial, militarized, and violent tentacles around the globe. Make no mistake, the collective seeds of violence operate as the obvious link that bounds the connective tissue between the external and the internal. Such is most efficiently true in relation to the seed of white supremacy’s deep hatred of Black people within the context of a predatory capitalistic society obsessed with money, domination, and the marginalization of the “other.”
The American Empire’s foundation is shaken to its core, with uprisings from below, from the streets.
No doubt, George Floyd’s murderous lynching by the embodiment of white supremacist hatred by the name of Derek Chauvin ignited the fuse, but the outright failings of America’s predaceous capitalistic economy to adequately fulfill basic needs — food, healthcare, a quality education, jobs with decent wages — was the explosion. The so-called promise of America’s legitimacy is bankrupt, and a multiracial check is past overdue.
Now, the youth and the streets are forcefully speaking, highlighting the hypocrisy and the abject blindness to their suffering and misery. Simply put, they no longer believe in the legitimacy of the traditional American social contract. However, rebellion, while being the sounding call, is not enough, for a Nonviolent Revolution is of the highest order; that is, enacting comprehensive, democratic sharing — power, wealth, resources, respect, organizing — and the radical transformation of the American Empire.
For, by all means, we cannot possibly, comfortably, and willingly return to the way things were. »
