In each drawing, modest materials—paper, pencil, and felt tip pen—become greater than the sum of their parts, with melancholy grey and cerulean hues bringing the landscapes to life. Delicate tensions abound: arial views suggest a cold distance, while meticulous mark making reveals the hand of the artist, drawing us ever closer.

The Brooklyn Rail published Maura Brewer’s response to Ian Cofre’s review of Amir Nikravan’s Rational Design.
Ian Cofre writes,”Los Angeles based artist Amir Nikravan has taken a singular, pill-like form he encountered in Pasadena’s Stuart Building—a site originally known as the Stuart Pharmaceutical Company Office and Plant (1958)—and he’s given it a treatment of rupture and reconfiguration for Rational Design, his first solo show at Karg Gallery.”
In this interview , Amir Nikravan explains the process and inspiration for the works included in Rational Design.
Jill Singer writes, “Amir Nikravan‘s exhibition “Rational Design,” on view now at Nathalie Karg gallery in New York, is the third exhibition we’ve featured in the past week exploring the relationship between painting and sculpture. But of all the artists we’ve written about, Nikravan seems the most interested in collapsing that boundary entirely.”
Zach Long writes, “Aside from a trio of humorously gyrating metallic sculptures by French artist Dorian Gaudin located in an attached wing of the Roundhouse, nothing else in the exhibition quite matches the spectacle of the aforementioned works—not to mention the grandeur of the venue.”

Laurie Simmons delves into Carl D’Alvia’s sculpture, process, and the ideas behind his work in this interview for Bomb Magazine.
Stephen Maine writes, “This knockout, two-venue show — D’Alvia’s first solo outing in New York since 2013 — demonstrates the absurdist humor, masterful craftsmanship, and elliptical thinking of an artist for whom working at apparent cross-purposes is an end in itself: embracing irresolution, the banalities of existence combine to form imponderable conundrums.”
Jerry Saltz writes: “From some magical, mystical garden of unseen shapes all covered in surfaces that imitate tree trunks, animal fur, and feathers, sculptor-magician extraordinaire Carl D’Alvia’s double show is a tour de force, using simulated wood grain cast in resin, returning us to a golden age of heroic sculpture.”
Joe Fyfe’s artwork will be included in the Halsey Mckay Gallery exhibition Flat Fix opening on January 26 and running through February 21, 2017.

Exhibition curator Julien Fronsacq writes: “Based on the essential nature of the machine- an instrument communicating a motion- and, in order to show how objects are capable of producing a narrative, Dorian Gaudin reminds us of how the fetishisms of objects and technology governs our relationship with the world.”
Nathlie Provosty’s paintings will be included in the American University Museum exhibition New Ruins opening on January 28 and running through March 12, 2017.
Nathalie Karg Gallery is pleased to participate in the 1st edition of Untitled San Francisco, opening January 13th. In our booth C10, we will present new works by Nathlie Provosty, Dorian Gaudin and Amir Nikravan.
In addition, for Untitled Monuments, we will present a projection by Amba Sayal-Bennett titled Manta. Sayal-Bennett is interested in the process of translation— specifically, the effects and affects generated by the transposition of elements across different media. She created the projection piece site-specifically: layering the prints with other prints of drawings, obscuring sections of the projection bed using paper, objects and tape in order to alter the light fall of the projected image, and using tape, foam and other materials selected from the repertoire of objects and materials collected in her studio to work into the projected area of light. The artist thus explores how the drawings change through this transposition, and how structural dissonances created by this movement across sites (paper and room) affect how she works back into them.
Alexia Wulff writes: “Her work, deep and monumental, unveils a fantasy world of lush plant and floral life, soothing colors, and strangely polished faces, one most of us imagine only in our dreams. Whether it’s the eyes peering from behind delicately draped fabric, or the partially cropped images, her work suggests there’s something else to be seen.”
The artists Rirkrit Tiravanija and Tomas Vu found the perfect way to bring the experience of art and surf together this year in a joint work titled DO WE DREAM UNDER THE SAME SKY.

The installation also features a stainless steel outdoor shower for surfers to rinse off, on which Rirkrit Tiravanija will perform Tuesday, November 29th at 3PM, in the artist own words, the spirit of this collaboration is in the poetics of resistance, the poetics of rioting, referencing to the May 1968 events in Paris, “sous les pavés, la plage” (Under the paving stone, the beach).
