Return to Earth (April 21, 2023 - June 17, 2023)

On Friday, April 21st, a solo exhibition by Kristin Bauer titled, Return to Earth, opened at de Sarthe USA.

Known for working with text and language as symbols in various forms of art, Kristin Bauer’s art in Return to Earth takes a deeper subconscious approach to language and turns inward. Drawing from text generated from conceptual poetics of her personal dream archives and archetypal studies, the works emphasize embodied experience in their construction with water, air, bodily movement and final form. Large scale site specific installation, painting and plexiglass assemblage works simultaneously capture the elements of wind and water, transmuting unconsciousness symbolism into dada-esque messaging that moves amongst surfaces of canvas, cast acrylic, nylon, parachutes and draping flag forms. Bright and enigmatic, and simultaneously direct and ephemeral, this exhibition marks the first solo exhibition of the artist, in Arizona, in a decade and coincides with the international release of her new publication 'This is Like That: Kristin Bauer' published by Hirmer Verlag, in Munich, Spring 2023. Artist editions available at the gallery.

Synchroncities (April 21, 2023 - June 17, 2023)

On Friday, April 21st, a solo exhibition by Emmett Potter titled, Synchronicities, opened at de Sarthe USA. 

Synchronicities is an audio visual art exhibition including projection mapping video sculptures, projected video art installation and audio visual artworks. The work exhibited was created as mantras, looped in repetition, varying in construction as sound-to-image and image-to-sound. Fluid abstract colors, in undulating sensual movements demonstrate Potter’s approach to video paintings, informed by both color field painting theories and atmospheric soundscape compositions. Potter titled the exhibition Synchronicities to emphasize the variation of sonic material artworks, vacillating between actual visual representations of sound frequencies, based on visual scores he composed, while other video works emulate sound in their rhythm and cadence.

de Sarthe USA opening preview (July 29, 2022)

DE SARTHE first presentation with Mak2 aka Mak Ying Tung 2 (Hong Kong) and Zhong Wei (Beijing) who focus on what it means to be human in the years to come as societal pressures encourage people to participate in the metaverse and adopt it as the new normal. Mak2 reverses the migration process by creating her works in the metaverse and pulling them back into the physical world which in some ways acknowledges the transformation while defying its inevitability. Zhong Wei’s approach in his detailed paintings acts more as voyeur to this phenomenon as he pours countless hours, days and even weeks absorbing digital information and data to then release it onto the canvas in an attempt to take a snapshot of the chaos that is the internet today.

The backroom exhibits works by oil on canvas artist Ma Sibo who perfectly captures light and emotion as well as Rick Levinson who is debuting a new series based off of James Joyce’s novel ‘Finnigens Wake'. Finishing the back room shows a collection of works on paper by Los Angeles based artist Zak Smith. Smith’s works are included in several public collections such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art, as well as The Saatchi Gallery, London.
