    The Organized Ledger
     Emilie Duval - Leading Turning Point
    Leading Turning Point
    Biography : Emilie Duval attended the Art and Art History program at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris in 1995, while simultaneously studying Law at the University Paris II Panthéon-Assas. She is a two-time Hunting Prize finalist and has held exhibitions around the world from Paris and Brussels to New York and Houston. Duval was featured in 'Viewfinder: New Images by Texas Artists' at FOTOFEST and the Houston Center for Photography in 2009, and her work was recently selected by legendary Galveston curator Clint Willour for exhibition at the Holocaust Museum (Houston, 2016). Her work was featured in New American Paintings (West Issue, #72), and shown this year at Cindy Lisica Gallery in Houston, Art City Austin, the France Pavilion in Houston, and Art on Paper in New York City. Detailed Description : The artist has created a body of work that is both cerebral and visually delightful. Duval is a virtuoso of multi-layered painting, and she connects this studio practice with photography and mixed media, video and installation for her new series, ORDER FROM CHAOS. The artwork is vibrant in design, and exudes an intense energy resulting from a masterful and complex process. Duval addresses digital technology and explores both the natural order and the chaos forged by humans in her surroundings. She examines overarching issues of society and economy through her spirited representations of Digital Ledger Technology and the Federal Reserve, while making bold associations with Baroque period style, drama and excess.

    Jan Rattia - Ashe
    Ashe
    Biography : Jan Rattia moved to the US from his native Venezuela in 1994 and earned an International Business degree in 1999. For the next decade, he developed a successful career in business before turning his longstanding love affair with art into his reason for being. He enrolled at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City and graduated in 2012. His work has been shown around the country, including Art Miami, Camera Club NY, International Center of Photography, Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Atlanta Contemporary, LOW Museum, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, among others. He was a Studio Artist at Atlanta Contemporary (2014-2015) before relocating to Houston in 2016. Rattia’s artwork has appeared in multiple publications and can be found in exciting private and public collections, including the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. His newest series will bring current events, cultural identity, and the concept of "home" into focus and will debut in his February-March 2018 solo show at Cindy Lisica Gallery, as a participating space in the FOTOFEST International Biennial. Detailed Description : His well-known series, TEASE, toured the US from 2013-2017 at Bridgette Meyer Gallery, ClampArt NYC, Houston Center for Photography, where he was awarded the Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship, and now travels to the upcoming Aqua Art Fair with Cindy Lisica Gallery.
  • Jeff Schwarz

    Jeff Schwarz

    Biography : Jeff Schwarz has been based in Brooklyn, NY, since earning his MFA (2006) in ceramics at Syracuse University. He also holds a BFA (2001) in ceramics from Slippery Rock University and has held exhibitions across the planet. His sculptures use complex and painterly glazes that are inimitable and exceptionally unique. He has shown at many galleries and institutions, notably at The Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh and The Icheon World Ceramic Center in South Korea, and his artwork is in the permanent collections of The Heinz History Center and The Garth Family Art Partnership, among others. His work in 2014 was selected as a “Daily Pic” and his solo exhibition at Revision Space was reviewed (with flying colors) by Blake Gopnik on Artnet and Blouin Art Info. Roberta Smith discussed his work at Andrew Edlin Gallery in the New York Times in 2015, and in 2016 he was featured in Hyperallergic and New American Paintings. Detailed Description : Schwarz's current work is inspired by culturally significant tile mosaic, graffiti, bathroom wall drawings, historical pottery, and the qualities of the urban and rural places the artist has lived. His "Beer Cans" series will be featured in the Cindy Lisica Gallery Pop Up Shop in the Aqua Lobby. They are wonderful one-of-a-kind ceramics with gold and silver lustre, as well as individual custom crates for each work, incorporating his signature style incorporating beauty, humor, and life's realities.
  • David Solomon

    David Solomon

    Biography : David Solomon (b. 1976, Kingston, NY) is an American contemporary artist and painter currently based in Santa Fe, NM. He studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and was studio assistant to major American artists Frank Lobdell and John Henry Waddell. He has shown in galleries and art fairs across the US and internationally. He has had reviews in Art In America, Art LTD, Huffington Post, Santa Fean Magazine, Adobe Airstream, THE Magazine, and others, and his work is included in wonderful private collections in Houston and worldwide. Detailed Description : Solomon's work is driven by an organic blend of both his early life and later formal experiences. As a child, he and his father (who attended Parson’s in New York) had "doodling sessions" and his artist-grandmother took him to the Metropolitan Museum Of Art as a child. Later, Florida’s swamps, beaches, and scrapyards became a playground for David’s inquisitive mind and provided endless hours of study. The forms of fruits, seeds, flowers and various animals still act as elements in his compositions. Physics, nature, and philosophy are evident, and more recently, the desert and mountainous landscapes influence his evolving work.
