"PORTRAITS OF NATURE, Mica I. Marder"


The Silas Marder Gallery

October 24 – November 22, 2009

Opening Reception, Saturday, October 24, 5 - 9

"In wildness is preservation of the world," Henry David Thoreau

Bridgehampton, NY, Saturday, October 24, from 5-9 PM—A reception will be held at The Silas Marder Gallery for "PORTRAITS OF NATURE," an exhibition featuring the artwork of Mica I. Marder. The show will include paintings, drawings, and sculpture based on a variety of animals found in the natural world: lobsters parading on a full midnight moon, an owl swooping to grasp an unsuspecting rodent, a hawk lifting off majestically with a fresh kill, a fluke gliding silently along the bottom of the sea. As testiment to the artist’s skill and strength of vision, various mediums are employed, from works on paper and canvas to steel and cast bronze.

"Mica is a gifted observer of natural life," states his brother and gallerist Silas Marder, "Mica picks up on the subtle things that would not be obvious to most people, but once you see them in his work, they are familiar, the way a bird lifts it's leg or the way the eyeball of a striped bass has a wild depth and while protruding."

Marder's art demonstrates the type of intimate connection with the East End environment that can only be based on practical experience. In essence, Marder acts as translator: achieving an isolated intimacy with a subject, investing in his work all that he sees, and sharing his unique vision with observers. There is something quintessentially American about the themes found in his art. Like American naturalist Henry David Thoreau, Marder celebrates the richness of nature in the simplest possible terms. Without being heavy-handed, Marder's art touches on themes of the home, the soul, the frailty of life, and the impact of humans on the environment.

If thematically there is a humanity and humility to his work, technically, there is a striking efficiency of line and a mature command of materials. Complex characteristics such as an animal's intention might be expressed in a single stroke or in a compact series of rough marks. In this regard, his work is reminiscent of that of Jean Dubuffet, the late French avant-garde painter (1901-1985). Marder demonstrates a powerful fluidity, an amazing ability to travel in and out of line, to ghost former images behind the final, finished piece.

Marder received a degree from Emerson College in the United Kingdom. He has exhibited nationally and internationally, and has participated in numerous art fairs. He has received various awards.

“We have been focused on a long term plan for Mica,” says Silas Marder, whose gallery is Mica Marder’s primary representation. “The collectors and institutions that we work with expect this in an emerging artist. We have tried to remain sensitive to the fact that the relationships and alliances that are forged now will last for the lifetime of the artist." The Marder family has called the East End of Long lsland home for several generations. They share a deep connection with the cultural and natural heritage of the area. Most of the Marders have degrees in the visual arts and have incorporated that interest into various business endeavors.

Also on view at the Silas Marder Gallery will be “Ghosts,” a site-specific Shed Show installation by artist Michael Rosch.
