Heather Gaudio Fine Art is pleased to announce
its upcoming solo exhibition “Jill
Moser: Paintings & Prints” to be held April 16-
May 28. An opening reception will be held for
the artist on Thursday, April 21st, 5-7pm.
Explosions of gesture, line and color come together
on grounds that are deceivingly plain
suggesting empty space. Closer inspection,
however, reveals carefully prepared surfaces
on which barely imperceptible painterly inflections
and echoes of gestural applications are
set against more pronounced lines and brushstrokes.
The final compositions are complex
abstractions that arrive as contradictions of energy and quietude. Jill
Moser’s work is as fluidly expressed on canvas as it is in her printmaking.
The New York based artist has had numerous solo and group exhibitions
and her work is in notable private and public collections including The Metropolitan
Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The National Gallery
of Art, Yale University Art Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago. Moser
has also held several teaching positions and has been a visiting artist and
lecturer in numerous institutions across the country.
The exhibition will also showcase a suite of lively prints the artist created to
benefit The Glass House in New Canaan. Executed in collaboration with
the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, the suite of five carborundum
aquatints draw inspiration from Philip Johnson’s landmark residence.
The prints are abstract evocations of the surrounding landscape as
experienced from within the Glass House. Entitled The Hours, each print in
the ensemble is rendered with a unique, highly saturated ground signifying
the changes in light and color as seen through the passage of time. The
colors bring to mind Andy Warhol’s enigmatic “Shadow” series, an artist
greatly appreciated by Philip Johnson. The Hours will be printed in an edition
of five, and proceeds from the sale of the suites will benefit The Glass
House. The project was underwritten by Heather Gaudio Fine Art. For
