Marianne Lovink

Marianne Lovink has continually changed her mediums (wire/fiberglass/aluminum/welded steel), but retains her interests in forms that have a basis in cell formation (science/botanicals). She is specifically interested in exploring the relationship between sculptural form and it’s embellishment.

“With this newest series of work I have been exploring the relationship between sculptural form and its embellishment. This is not unusual for me, but in the past I have resisted the urge to fully explore this interest. I have always been fascinated with the visual language of mark – making throughout millennia – and its complexity, variety, and pervasiveness across all cultures. This timeless preoccupation with the endless expressive possibilities of repetitive motifs, and the subsequent effect of positive and negative space, has had a growing influence on my work. I am particularly interested in how a specific motif can conform but also resist the underlying sculptural form, creating a visual tension that enlivens the eye.”

Alex Couwenberg

Alex Couwenberg

Over that last decade, Alex Couwenberg has developed a signature style of painting where he builds upon layers of paint while also exposing his under painting. His process, an additive and reductive series of moves and passes, creates multilayered environments that are deep and sensual. His technique is partly a reflection on the artist’s relationship with his personal and cultural history as well as an intention to find and create a middle ground between expressionism and hardedge abstraction.

Couwenberg’s newest paintings continue to explore “process” and the “moment” through tightly controlled compositions of paint and mark making, creating images that are inspired by the elements indigenous to his surroundings.  Couwenberg’s work gives a nod and pays homage to the historical styles of the visual language used by hard-edge, geometric abstractionist, the Finish Fetish and Light and Space artists who were influential in shaping the aesthetic of Los Angeles and Southern California art during the 1950’s to the 1970’s. His paintings reference and suggest influences from custom car culture, surfing, skateboarding, and music, at the same time glossed over with the sensibility of mid-century modernist design. However, not intending to replicate, Couwenberg uses Eames-era design and hard edge geometric abstraction as points of departure for creating his paintings. He harnesses these ideas into harmonious results: asymmetric compositions of color with beautiful surfaces that can be dynamic or quiet and elegant, presenting a kind of contemplative soliloquy reflecting the visual landscape of the world around him.

Artist Information

Artist Website: alexcouwenberg.com

Born and raised in Southern California, painter Alex Couwenberg creates images that are inspired by the elements integral to his surroundings. From Los Angeles, Couwenberg’s work references and suggests the aesthetic associated with mid-century modernism, car culture, skateboards, and surfboards. Not to leave out, the paintings pay homage to the historical styles of post-war art making associated with Los Angeles and Southern California throughout the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Couwenberg’s paintings give a nod towards the Hard-edge abstractionists, the finish fetish, and the light and space artists. Not content to replicate, he uses the sensibility of Eames-era design and hard-edge geometric abstraction as points of departure for creating paintings. His process, an additive and reductive series of moves and passes, creates multilayered environments that are deep and sensual. He harnesses these ideas into harmonious results, reflecting the visual landscape of his environment.

A graduate from the Art Center College of Design and The Claremont Graduate School, Couwenberg worked under the guidance of Karl Benjamin, one of the leading figures in the Southern California based school of Hard-edge geometric abstraction. Benjamin was instrumental in the development of his painting style, process, and philosophy. A Southern California native, Couwenberg naturally embraced this sensibility and applied it to his art making practices. By instilling the discipline and work ethic associated with these philosophies into his process, the paintings began to mature and develop a visual voice. The vocabulary references the dedication toward craft, process, and the progression of concepts and techniques.

Couwenberg’s paintings have been shown in several solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. His work can be found in numerous public, private, corporate, and museum collections around the world. Recent museum acquisitions include the The Frederick Weisman Arts Foundation in LA, the Long Beach Museum of Art, Lancaster Museum of Art and History, Laguna Art Museum, Crocker Museum of Art, and the Daum Museum in Missouri. In 2007 Couwenberg was awarded the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation Award for his achievements in painting and was recently featured as the subject of Los Angeles based film maker Eric Minh Swenson, which focuses on the artists life and studio practices.

Alex Couwenberg & Curtis Cutshaw
Geometric Generation Press Release PDF Download 

The Kostuik Gallery is excited to introduce our September Exhibition of new paintings by Alex Couwenberg and Curtis Cutshaw.  Geometric Generation combines accomplished painters who express addictive and reductive paint techniques to create formal compositions of movement and textures all through highly  skilled paint application unique to each artist.California based Alex Couwenberg pays homage to the historical styles of the visual language used by hard-edge, geometric abstractionist, the Finish Fetish and Light and Space artists who were influential in shaping the aesthetic of Los Angeles and Southern California art during the 1950’s to the 1970’s. His paintings reference and suggest influences from custom car culture, surfing, skateboarding, and music, at the same time glossed over with the sensibility of mid-century modernist design.

Artistic Intent

Over that last decade, Alex Couwenberg as developed a signature style of painting where he builds upon layers of paint while also exposing his under painting. His process, an additive and reductive series of moves and passes, creates multilayered environments that are deep and sensual. His technique is partly a reflection on the artist’s relationship with his personal and cultural history as well as an intention to find and create a middle ground between expressionism and hardedge abstraction. Couwenberg’s 2014 paintings continue to explore “process” and the “moment” through tightly controlled compositions of paint and mark making, creating images that are inspired by the elements indigenous to his surroundings. Couwenberg’s work gives a nod and pays homage to the historical styles of the visual language used by hard-edge, geometric abstractionist, the Finish Fetish and Light and Space artists who were influential in shaping the aesthetic of Los Angeles and Southern California art during the 1950’s to the 1970’s. His paintings reference and suggest influences from custom car culture, surfing, skateboarding, and music, at the same time glossed over with the sensibility of mid-century modernist design. However, not intending to replicate, Couwenberg uses Eames-era design and hard edge geometric abstraction as points of departure for creating his paintings. He harnesses these ideas into harmonious results: asymmetric compositions of color with beautiful surfaces that can be dynamic or quiet and elegant, presenting a kind of contemplative soliloquy reflecting the visual landscape of the world around him.

Stephen Hutchings

All of Hutchings paintings consist of a charcoal drawing, which is the element that separates him from the typical painter.  The energy of a drawn image is masterly mixed with soft and dramatic oil tints presenting depictions of heightened light qualities. Hutchings in essence is a master of Chiaroscuro: an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on the artist’s chosen subject matter.

Over the past three decades, Stephen Hutchings’s work has been featured in numerous large-scale museum exhibitions across Canada. His work is included in many important corporate, public and private collections. Hutchings currently lives in New Brunswick. He has been represented by Jennifer Kostuik Gallery since 2000.

“The images in this exhibition reference sketchbook drawings which evolved from a sense of place or a memory of place. In some ways the images become distant and intuitive recollections. The initial act of drawing, combined with the digital process and the print medium, creates an imprint of the actual memory. The process of creating the image reflects the way memory struggles for clarity. Although there are specific signifiers, as distant as they may be, it seems to be the emotive memory that is the stimulus. The forgetfulness caused by the traffic of time and experience is a further source of inspiration. These tracings of memory of past and present suggest movement towards a more subconscious voice. ”

Artist Information

Artist Website: stuoxley.com/

Stu Oxley is an outstanding Canadian artist with a 30-year history of exhibitions in national and international, public and private galleries. Primarily working as a printmaker and painter, his practice is defined by a distinctive form of poetic abstraction involving evocative colour and exquisitely responsive mark making. As a Master Printer, Oxley has also made a very significant contribution auditioning prints for numerous distinguished contemporary artists at Riverside Studio, the print shop he runs in Elora, Ontario. Oxley earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Waterloo and has for the last fifteen years been an extremely supportive and effective instructor of art, teaching at notable post secondary art programs such as Georgian College and the University of Guelph. Stu Oxley has realized twenty-six solo exhibitions of his artwork, including regular exhibitions at prominent art galleries such as Mira Godard Gallery in Toronto, Jennifer Kostuik Gallery in Vancouver, Jill George Gallery in London, England, and Paul Kuhn Gallery in Calgary. Included in numerous private and public art collections such as the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Museum London, the Maclaren Art Centre, the Nickle Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Stu Oxley has also been awarded recognition with a Purchase Award by the Ernst and Young 'Great Canadian Print Prize'. A significant high point in Stu Oxley's exhibition history is a catalogued, international solo exhibition at the Naughton Gallery at Queens University in Belfast, Ireland in 2011.

Bill McCarroll

Bill McCarroll

Bill McCarroll

Bill McCarroll’s paintings and prints show his interest in the procedural based art of post-minimalism – paint applied layer by layer on canvas to build textured surfaces, sometimes employing corrugated cardboard, in an attempt to maintain perfect control, leaving as few physical traces of the artist’s hand as possible.  The artist also has an orientation with Pop Art’s appropriation or referencing as seen in his editioned, hand colored silkscreen and lithographic prints – the attempt to bridge the gap that otherwise separates high art from mass culture. Born in California, McCarroll’s work bears the imprint of his admiration for the mechanisms and inclinations of the art sprung out of the sixties.  However, his imagery and presentation maintains an exploration in contemporary life and its constructs.

Artist Information

Billy McCarroll played competitively in the sport of golf during his youth in Santa Barbara, California. Receiving a golf scholarship to the California State University, McCarroll changed his direction and left with an MA in Visual Art in 1969.The multi media artist has spent that last 30 years as an instructor, artist and jazz musician at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta Canada. In 1983, McCarroll came upon the 1953 Dell paperback edition of Sam Snead’s Natural Golf, a how to book of instructions from the famous golfer which became an ongoing influence in the artistic course of McCarroll’s art. Through the artist’s forays into eccentric abstraction and structural-procedural geometric abstraction, McCarroll’s appropriations of the rough graphics and text from the book allows the artist to preserve his reverence of the game of golf while balancing it with a subtle sense of humor, giving his work namely a unique visual presentation.
