Like Bourgeois, Andres' sculptures are autobiographical. They don’t shy away from trauma; they face it head on and implicate the viewer in the tragedy. A contemporary memento mori, these images capture the artist’s suffering but also invite self-reflection. Through her visual storytelling, one is forced to reconcile with their own body and its mortality.
“Emily Weiskopf: Pixan Paths // Higher Roads” at Jenn Singer Gallery
The opening of Emily Weiskopf’s show of painted plaster frescoes, embedded with stones, shells, and other organic materials collected by the artist, doubles as a one-year anniversary party for Jenn Singer Gallery. The show’s title comes from the Mayan word pixan, and is inspired by the artist’s interest in ancient ruins and spirituality.
As selected and arranged by Jenn Singer, the works from these four artists confront and respond to one another, taking up and developing formal and psychological motifs...Presented in the narrow confines of Jenn Singer Gallery, these pieces open a wide panorama of artistic possibilities, and a taste of the broad range of emotions art is capable of evoking.
...we were suddenly in a very unique, vivacious, visceral space unlike any other gallery in New York...There are an estimated 500 – 600 galleries in New York. Jenn Singer has taken a quantum leap into this matrix because she offers an experience at her gallery informed by Southern hospitality that is unusual for this city...Walk down that small, magical staircase soon.
Miami based artist His show “Little Robot [Future Loading]” at Jenn Singer Gallery addresses issues like the inevitable extinction of some animals as a result of our ignorance.
Juan Travieso brings nature to life in his colorful and geometric paintings. Growing up in Havana, Cuba, he loved being outside and exploring his natural surroundings. This passion developed into his appreciation for nature, the core component of his design oriented style...
For “Little Robot [Future Loading]” Travieso uses his deep passion for color to explore ideas of a not-too-distant landscape where our society’s love of technology has caused the extinction of almost all wildlife in the world. To express these ideas, Travieso takes on the identity of a young boy - Little Robot - in a technicolor future, viewing digital recreations of creatures long gone resulting in the incredible work you see above.
Gallery Highlighted in SCOPE Art Fair Review:
New gallery Jenn Singer Gallery wowed me at her 1st Scope show with paintings by Moroccan/Israeli artist Miriam Cabessa who represented Israel at the Venice Biennale in 1997. Ms. Singer said she reps mostly female artists...
Andres, informed by her condition and ideas, reached out into the vast darkness of unexpressed images, and a perfect image of her condition and ideas reached back to her. They grasped one another’s hands, and she coaxed it from that blind dream world into our own...Other artists will have the opportunity to make larger bodies of work...She has only the one chance — but she’s gotten it right.
When Italy’s fabled Doria Pamphilj family set out to have a portrait painted in 2012, their choice of artist was sure to bring someone into rarefied company. As Roman aristocrats and custodians of one of Italy’s most lavish palazzos – as well as a vast art collection including works by the likes of Caravaggio, Raphael, and Velázquez – their portrait was something for the annals of art history. For this plum commission, they turned to softly-spoken Irish painter Michelle Rogers....
...a gem of an art gallery that featured the Moroccan born artist, Miriam Cabessa for an•thro•pom•e•try. And boy did she make quite the impression...Cabessa gives us an entry into her world where the investment is quite emotional as are all the objects she used to make marks is close to her heart...It made quite the impression and so did Cabessa with her latest show. It was distinct because of what it allowed for the viewer to develop a personal story and not to dictate what narrative it should be.
In these new paintings, he deftly uses his passion for color as a prolific language to jolt us into facing one possible path of our shared uncertain future: a world so distracted by technology that humans have mindlessly pushed virtually all animals into eternal extinction, forever changing our earth.
New York and Rome based artist C. Finley maybe best known for the cheery Wallpapered Dumpsters installed in around 12 cities across the world since 2006, but a show of her new work currently on view at the just opened at Jenn Singer Gallery in New York foregrounds the artist’s works on canvas. “Moves Moves”, an exhibition of seven paintings, puts the emphasis on Finley’s abstractions — whose round forms call to mind Sonia Delaunay for a digital age — though two pieces (faces in ecstasy; Moves Moves: The Kiss ) are in line with her more signature, erotic figural works.

Bronxnet's Rhina Valentin's Live Interview with Emily Weiskopf about her solo exhibition Pixan Paths // Higher Roads at Jenn Singer Gallery
Joseph Adolphe’s figurative oils and charcoal on paper have an old world master quality, juxtaposed with an expressionist looseness of line and brush. Miriam Cabessa returns to the gallery with a single mixed media abstraction incorporating a Turner painting dramatically peeking out of the corner of her black & gold canvas. Figurative painter Daniel Maidman’s elegant reclining nude captures us with her alluring, emotional gaze, while emerging artist Timothy Wilson’s abstractions lend mystery and intrigue to the show with his ghostly figures and hollowed interiors.
It sure did make an impression namely on wood panel and canvas utilizing special and meaningful objects dipped in paint then pushed down to leave ghostly images and wisps of created specters that haunt beautifully. To sacrifice said item to create art is the cathartic birthing pain to churn out such works. With each one an artist dies a little in the hopes of living eternally.
With Cabessa’s work, there is an interaction with each piece. A conversation between the artist and her canvas that the viewer can experience. Books, letters and personal objects make up the work that is in Anthropometry, and it’s as if each piece is an x-ray or impression from her life...The works themselves are deeply personal and transformative...
The emerging talent, whose first solo exhibition, Little Robot [Future Loading], is opening on October 14 at Manhattan's Jenn Singer Gallery, has designed a pair of shoes and three t-shirts for a brand called Etnies, which sponsers big-time skateboarders....The tie-up represents yet another intermingling of art and fashion.
Review: MODERN SUMMER: ABEX+
One of my cultural finds this summer is the Jenn Singer Gallery, a boutique bijoux of a small space, masterminded by the petite gallery owner Jenn Singer. The gallery may be modest but it offers art on a grand scale---works on canvas and paper by some of today's most Influential Abstract Expressionists--hand picked from an important private collection in New York City.
