Michael Rosenfeld Gallery to Represent The Falkenstein Foundation
Michael Rosenfeld Gallery proudly announces its representation of The Falkenstein Foundation, established in 1997 to preserve, promote, and support the legacy of Claire Falkenstein (American, 1908-1997). The gallery has long been a champion of Falkenstein’s work, including her sculptures regularly in group exhibitions since 1999. The gallery is also currently planning a solo exhibition of her work for the near future.
Celebrated for her exquisite structures of fused metal and glass, Claire Falkenstein was a versatile innovator who moved fluidly between two- and three-dimensional media, bringing the elegance and complexity of her sculptural work to paintings, drawings, lithographs, and even jewelry. Falkenstein spent most of her career unaffiliated with specific art movements, and this individuality enabled her to develop a singular visual vocabulary that was grounded in nature and influenced by the seaweed, shells, stones, and driftwood that captivated her as a child growing up in the small costal lumber town of Coos Bay, Oregon.
Irving Norman: War & Peace, Monumental Paintings, 1969-1986
September 6 – October 25, 2014
ArtNews: Art of the City
by Andrew Russeth
"...Lastly, I finally made it back to Chelsea today and found what has to be the brightest glimmer of light in the neighborhood at Michael Rosenfeld, which is doing its second show with the ace figurative painter Irving Norman (1906–1989), titled “War & Peace Monumental Paintings, 1969-1986.” You could call it the sleeper hit of the season, but that would be trite since these are sprawling scenes that show scores of bodies being tortured, enchained, forced into labor, and sent into combat. It’s Bruegel and Bosch turned toward the dehumanizing horrors of the military-industrial complex - dark, mad, and unfortunately on the nose."
