  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce its participation in the 2021 TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art auction with a work by Haley Josephs.


    Haley Josephs
    MY DOLPHIN FANTASY, 2021
    Oil on linen - 10 x 8 inches

    Fairy tales are grasping at a world that can never be. Maybe a painting is a fairy tale? It’s a reflection of our world, but with a spin on it that makes it forever unattainable. Like a bug preserved in crystal, you can’t get to it without breaking it all apart. What is reality? What is the dream?­­ 
    - Haley Josephs

    Brooklyn-based painter Haley Josephs focuses on fantasy and femininity in her archetypal portraits, painted in the artist’s brushy, luminous style. The fairy tale scenes Jospehs create vary from light, elemental works, like this painting My Dolphin Fantasy, to darker scenes of post-apocalyptic anger and alienation. Here, the figure has a carefree aura as she emerges from an idealized ocean with whimsical dolphins leaping behind her. A graduate from Yale University’s MFA program, Josephs has exhibited in the US, Mexico, and China, and her work is in the collection of the X Museum, Beijing, among others.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary American artist Gerasimos Floratos in France, Belgium and China.


    Almine Rech hosted the artist's inaugural solo exhibition at Almine Rech Paris in November 2020. His second solo exhibition will take place at Almine Rech Brussels, Belgium in September 2022, as well as a solo presentation at Château de Boisgeloup, Gisors, France, in October 2022.

    Gerasimos Floratos (b. 1986) lives and works in New York City. Floratos grew up enmeshed in the overwhelming sensorial experience that is Times Square, the pounding commercial and touristic heart of the city, a place the artist refers to as “the center of the center”. To this day, his studio is stationed there, where he continues to work and live.

    Surrounded by the restlessness of midtown Manhattan, Floratos uses the hyper-charged atmosphere of his neighborhood as a springboard for a deeper exploration of the urban matrix and the human subconscious. Impastoed paintings that are at once luminous and torpidly congested feature a rotating cast of anthropomorphic creatures: sauntering pedestrians, skyscraper bouquets, honking commuters, trudging oversize shoes, and hands with gigantic mushrooming fingers. 

    Laden with the sonic qualities of city life, Floratos’ psycho-figurative bodies simultaneously map the internal workings of the artist's mind, and the visceral experience of his physical environment in what he describes as a form of “psychogeography”, a term borrowed from Guy Debord, a founding member of the Situationist International movement of the 1960s. By examining the ways the urban environment shapes our lived experience, Floratos captures the chaotic and anxious pace of the city, creating dense spaces crowded by larger than life subjects that radiate the oblivious audacity of big city personas.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary Spanish artist Jorge Galindo in France, Belgium, United Kingdom and Asia.


    Jorge Galindo was born in 1965 in Madrid, Spain. Trained in the workshops of the Círculo de Bellas Artes in Madrid, his artistic oeuvre spans more than three decades. Describing his own work as “dirty pop,” his monumental paintings are gestural and expressionist. Over the past thirty years, Jorge Galindo has made paintings which often synthesize elements of collage. Using a range of materials, his lush and colorful surfaces are executed in an energetic, sometimes chaotic style. 

    Galindo’s work has been exhibited internationally including at the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C.; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; and the Hammer Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA. The Hall Art Foundation Schloss Derneberg presents an exhibition of Galindo’s work on view until the summer of 2022. 
    Galindo lives and works in Toledo, Spain.

  • DnA SHENZHEN


    September 30 — October 4, 2021
    Booth C17


    Please join Almine Rech at DnA SHENZHEN 2021, presenting a solo project of Vivian Springford.
    The American abstract painter Vivian Springford (1913-2003) provides a fascinating case study of a mid-century American woman artist. With an emphasis on gesture, dripping, and splattering, Springford's works of the 1950s bore a clear connection to Abstract Expressionism. The primary influence of her early work came from East Asian arts and letters, particularly Chinese calligraphy, Taoism and Confucianism.
    We look forward to welcoming you at Booth C17.

  • One by One: Ha Chong-Hyun


    September 29 - October 11, 2021


    EXPLORE ONLINE! 

    Almine Rech is pleased to share Ha Chong-Hyun: Conjunction 19-28, 2019, the ninth installment of One by One, Almine Rech’s series of exclusive online viewing rooms dedicated to extraordinary individual artworks.


    A prominent member of the Dansaekhwa (“Monochrome Painting”) movement, Ha Chong-Hyun began his practice in the aftermath of the Korean War, using materials he found on the street, such as barbed wire and burlap sacks left over from American food aid.

    While such materials carry political resonances, Ha has always focused more on material dynamics and physical processes than on symbolic concerns, as when he placed barbed wire on top of cloth in the sun to burn its shadow onto the support, or as when he began meticulously using wooden slats covered in paper to push paint through burlap from the back, creating subtly aleatory textures on the front side. This process formed the foundation for a lifelong series of paintings titled Conjunctions, in which Ha continues to wrestle with color and texture in an endless exploration of monochrome painting.

  • Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of contemporary American artist Jonathan Gardner in Europe.


    Almine Rech will host the artist’s inaugural solo exhibition featuring new paintings in Almine Rech Paris, Turenne from November 20 to December 18, 2021.

    Jonathan Gardner is a New-York based artist known for his depictions of stylized figures in their leisurely worlds. Gardner’s richly colored paintings are filled with nonchalant figures against flattened space, adding to the surreal, uncanny air of the works. Drawing from the aesthetics of modern art, his painting sets up an absence of hierarchy between the motifs, combining several realities: landscape, portrait and still life.

    Gardner received is BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, and his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2017, he was finalist candidat for the Prix Jean-François Prat.
    Jonathan Gardner was featured in a group presentation at Almine Rech Paris, Turenne, from October 12 to November 16, 2019.

    Born in 1982, Jonathan Gardner lives and works in New York City.
    He is represented by Casey Kaplan in New York.

  • Art Basel Unlimited


    Ryoji Ikeda, data-verse 3 (2021)
    September 23 - 26, 2021
    Hall 1.0 / U20


    Ryoji Ikeda’s data-verse 3 (2021) premiered as a standalone artwork as part of Art Basel's Unlimited sector, the unique platform for large-scale projects that transcend the limitations of a traditional art-fair stand. Presented by Almine Rech and commissioned by Audemars Piguet Contemporary, the third and final variation of the artist’s most complex project to date marks the conclusive chapter in his data-driven audio-visual research into nature that first began in the early 2000s.

    Ryoji Ikeda is an electronic composer and visual artist who explores sound and light by means of mathematical precision and aesthetics. By experimenting with frequencies and scales difficult for the human ear and mind alone to comprehend, Ikeda renders the imperceptible through numerical systems and computer aesthetics. His long-term projects have taken a multiplicity of forms, from immersive live performances and audio-visual installations to books and CDs and have evolved over the years to encompass his data-driven research.

    James Turrell, Prado, Red (1968)
    September 23 - 26, 2021
    Hall 1.0 / U47


    Almine Rech is pleased to present Prado, Red, 1968, by American artist James Turrell. The historical 'Projection Piece' was on view on the occasion of Art Basel Unlimited.

    The exhibition of Prado, Red presents the exciting opportunity to experience a historic ‘Projection Piece’ by James Turrell. In 1966, Turrell began creating his ‘Projection Pieces’ at his first studio and exhibition venue, the former ‘Mendota Hotel’ in Ocean Park, California. Using the ground floor commercial space, he blocked out all the windows in order to project artificial light in the corners of the room (‘Cross Corner Projections’) or onto individual walls (‘Single Wall Projections’). Turrell showed these ‘Projection Pieces’ shortly thereafter in 1967 at the Pasadena Art Museum.These early systematic investigations of the interaction of artificial/natural light and interior/exterior spaces paved the way for the magnanimous ‘Skyspaces.’
