May 11 — May 14, 2023
Featuring work by: James Castle, Dorothy F. Foster, Jesse Harrod, Julian Martin, Ron Nagle
Fleisher/Ollman’s presentation for the 2023 Independent fair focuses on formal and conceptual affinities across the works of five artists: Ron Nagle, Jesse Harrod, Dorothy F. Foster, Julian Martin, and James Castle. Our presentation reflects the gallery’s mission of exploring the resonance of self-taught, contemporary, and under-recognized artists. Ideas at play include the embrace of amateur art-making and hobbyism, the ingenuity of self-taught drawing practices, and the novel ways artists break down the binaries of representation and abstraction.
