• Almine Rech now represents Michael Kagan

    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of American artist Michael Kagan in Europe, UK, Asia. The gallery will additionally represent Kagan in collaboration with Venus Over Manhattan in the US.

    Born in Virginia, Kagan received his MFA from the New York Academy of Art and has since been based in New York City. 

    Kagan’s bold, large-scale oil paintings delve into the physical and emotional journey of adventurers, namely astronauts and Formula 1 drivers. His paintings merge atmospheric and physical elements with technical details, where aerospatial and engineering components are created and executed skillfully using thick and deliberate brushstrokes. The result is a clear yet captivating depiction of the subject matter.

    Michael Kagan's recent exploration of sculptures maintains these atmospheric elements that have become synonymous with his paintings but with the added layer of a third dimension. 
    This encapsulates a more comprehensive environment. These works range from helmets and astronauts made in bronze, as well as alabaster footprints.  

    His works can be found in collections worldwide from the US to Japan, such as The Hall Collection and the The Maezawa Collection.

    The gallery will feature his work at the upcoming Art Basel Miami Beach and at Almine Rech Shanghai in 2024.

  • Art Basel Miami Meridians

    November 29 — December 3, 2022
    Booth M18

    Almine Rech is pleased to present The Journey through the Tehom, 2022, from the Essential Figures series, by California-based artist, Zio Ziegler. The Essential Figures series comprises large-format, mural-sized paintings in which monumental amorphous figures are set in motion. Using primarily oil-stick, Ziegler works with textures that fuse the raw oil pigment with external materials such as sand, soil, and pumice.

    His sources of inspiration, though ever-changing, include early 20th-century abstraction, Italian Futurism, and Cubism, and call to mind the likes of Francis Bacon, Kazimir Malevich, and Constantin Brâncuși. Just as Ziegler's inspiration derives from various cultures, his work aims to speak to societies across the world, serving as “open hieroglyphics,” through which viewers can project their identities. This year’s presentation demonstrates Ziegler’s enduring practice of depicting amorphous forms and detailed primitive patterns.

  • Almine Rech now represents Jameson Green

    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of American artist Jameson Green, following his first solo exhibition with the gallery in London.

    Born in Connecticut in 1992, he graduated with a BFA from School of Visual Arts in 2014, and later earned an MFA in studio arts from Hunter College in 2019.

    Jameson Green’s paintings act as psychological parables steeped in the grandeur of art history, influenced by comics and illustration, and filtered through a highly introspective lens. Composed of crowded and narrative-heavy scenes, his works often feature references to social and political injustice, human struggle, freedom, and the eternal connection of life and death.

    'To open with the history of art is to place these paintings in the context of the historical and canonised, which may seem like they are somehow related to the past, but they are the result of Green’s time and experience. The kaleidoscope of references he brings to the paintings fractures through his own world view, marked by the artist’s upbringing in the New Haven projects. The ferocity, the wildness of these paintings looms in the background, it unquiets the experience of looking at them. 

    For Green, painting is not something separate from society, something that comfortably sits behind the doors of a museum, peacefully hung on the wall. Painting, from history to this moment, is a project of reflecting and telling stories about society. And that is where Green’s paintings are: a commentary on a violent, still arresting, world.'

    — Orit Gat, writer and critic

    Recent solo exhibitions include 'Fire Figure Fantasy: Selections from ICA Miami's Collection' at ICA Miami and 'THIS IS AMERICA' at Kunstraum, Potsdam, Germany. 

    Green's paintings are included in the permanent collections of Dallas Museum of Art, Pérez Art Museum Miami and ICA Miami, among others.

  • Almine Rech announces opening of new U.S. flagship: Tribeca, New York City

    Almine Rech is pleased to announce plans for a permanent expansion in New York’s downtown Tribeca neighborhood opening in 2023, marking the gallery’s new flagship location in the U.S.

    Housed within a 134-year-old landmarked building recently renovated by Pritzker prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban, the 10,000 square foot space is situated at 361 Broadway (Franklin St./Broadway). The original Almine Rech location in New York will remain active on the Upper East Side.

    “Since we opened in New York in 2016, over 20 US-based artists have joined the gallery. We needed to increase the range of opportunities we could offer them locally. Tribeca was already on our radar since we started considering an expansion but, ultimately, it was feedback from our artists that solidified our location choice." - Paul de Froment, Managing Partner, New York. 

    "We were looking for a beautiful, adaptable and dynamic large new space downtown." - Almine Rech.

    "The gallery's scale will provide amazing possibilities for our artists. We trust they will take advantage of the venue to produce some of their most ambitious exhibitions to date." - Ethan Buchsbaum, Senior Director, New York.

    Almine Rech maintains additional locations in Paris, Brussels, London and Shanghai.

  • Almine Rech now represents Amanda Wall

    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the global representation of artist Amanda Wall.

    In 2022, the gallery will feature works by Amanda Wall in upcoming fairs such as Paris +, Art Basel Miami Beach and Art021 Shanghai.

    Amanda Wall is an American self-taught painter who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. A heady mix of voyeurism, exhibitionism, and 21st century existentialism, Wall's work exposes the intimate and uncanny. With a shock of lurid colors in contrast to tender flesh tones, Wall's distinctive palette touches on the nerve of vulnerability, desire and control. The subject matter, however, remains shadowy - a tension between abstraction and distorted reality, a conflict between the self and the void.

  • Almine Rech now represents Zio Ziegler

    Almine Rech is pleased to announce the representation of California-born artist, Zio Ziegler, in New York, Europe and United Kingdom.

    On the occasion of The Art Show 2022, Almine Rech is pleased to present a solo booth of works by Zio Ziegler.

    Ziegler paints from a meditative state, drawing from his subconscious a personal interpretation of the world around him. For him, painting is an act of self-exploration and a radical expression of vulnerability. “Painting is my attempt at self-understanding - rather than finding a concept and executing it in a linear fashion, I react to my questions, life, and awareness,” he claims. The focus of Ziegler’s practice aims to illuminate the process of creating instead of isolating the final result. His images of monumental figures set in motion serve as a portal of sorts for the viewer, inviting them to perceive the work in their own way, and in turn creating an active exchange between the artist and the audience.

    Using primarily oil sticks, Ziegler works with textures that fuse the raw oil pigment with external materials such as sand, soil, and pumice. His sources of inspiration include Italian Futurism and Cubism, and call to mind the hybridization of figuration and abstraction exemplified by Francis Bacon, the early works of Kazimir Malevich, and Constantin Brancusi's sculptures.

  • Frieze London

    October 12 - 16, 2022
    Booth D13

    On the occasion of Frieze London 2022, Almine Rech will present works by Alexandre Lenoir, a French-Caribbean artist.

    After graduating with honours from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2016), Alexandre Lenoir moved to Casablanca to further develop his practice. His paintings consist of multiple layers of colour washes combined with an elaborate technique of stencilling.

    Representing landscapes of luxurious vegetation, interiors and buildings, Lenoir’s works often include characters as ephemeral as memories. Like flashbacks or dreamscapes, an ambiguous hedonism inhabits these visions, drawing on the multiple identities of the artist himself: one of his Caribbean roots, to Chartres where he grew up, to Morocco and his formative artistic years; and finally to the industrial neighbourhood of Paris where today his studio is located.

    Alexandre Lenoir was awarded the Fondation Jean-François Prat et Marie-Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre in 2016 and Pierre Cardin de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Paris prizes in 2020.
