COOPERATION OF PLEASURE

This exhibition presents the work of two abstract painters living and working in New York City. According to the curator, “Julie Evans and Barbara Takenaga each bring a sensuality of touch, vibrancy of color, and personal vernacular into a joyous confluence of form. Their paintings burst with luminosity and unpredictability making us aware of the physicality of living and the sheer joy of seeing.”

Julie Evans’ work has been widely shown both nationally and internationally and reviewed in many publications, including the New York Times, Flash Art, Time Out NY, Art on Paper and others.  Former Director of the Visual Arts Program at The New School in Manhattan, Evans currently teaches at Rutgers University and was recently awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to India.  Her work is represented in many public and private collections including Progressive Corp., Pfizer Inc. and JP Morgan Chase.

“… Julie Evans’ doily-like paintings appear at first glance to travel the timeless, endless landscape of the Indian mandala. And yet, Pop pokes its head out of the tomb and lumbers into Evans’s work:  Her salmon-colored blobs and whirling circles-within-circles suggest nothing so much as an ice-cream-flecked Baskin Robbins napkin on which a gifted child has doodled with her brand-new Hasbro Spirograph.”
