“We Are a Landscape of All We Have Seen” at Able Fine Art NY Gallery


The Able Fine Art NY Gallery is presenting, “We Are a Landscape of All We Have Seen,” an exhibition featuring select gallery artists in a  new Lower East Side venue. The title, a quote from the great master, Isamu Noguchi, encapsulates the idea that each person is a universe and every artist creates visions personal to his or her journey.  The show includes work from a group of emerging international artists and two prominent American artists – painter Marsha Solomon and photographic artist Adel Gorgy.

Adel Gorgy’s work challenges the conventions of the medium. In his current series, “Meditation in Five Dimensions,” the layers of meaning in his work are extended…literally.  Gorgy, in his new work, presents meditative mandalas for the 21st century. By creating a conceptual, visual, spatial construct, Gorgy allows the viewer to see his images as either two-dimensional or three-dimensional abstractions and challenges our perception of visual reality.


Marsha Solomon’s captivating “Calyx and Pink” expresses the joyous rhythms of nature while recalling classic Abstract Expressionist masters like Helen Frankenthaler.

Marsha Solomon’s lyrical large scale abstractions from the series “From Rhythm to Form” continue to evoke the power and energy of classic New York Abstract Expressionism. Solomon’s long experience and strength as a painter come through in her virtuosity in controlling both poured paint and delicate, deliberate brushwork.  In her 2016 “Calyx and Pink,” the tones are diffuse and ethereal, evoking the unbridled joy of nature.


Suena’s 6-foot tall self-portrait is an exploration of color, tone, line and the inner self.

An exciting group of international artists, many from the rapidly growing Korean art scene, were chosen to give viewers an overview of the type of work Able Fine Art has become known for finding and supporting. Each is highly trained and accomplished, utilizing a distinct voice to convey contemporary visions that respect the past and speak to larger issues.

Able Fine Art NY Gallery has a long history of introducing exceptional emerging and established international artists to the New York audience. By recognizing young talents that retain and embrace traditions, yet express them through original and exciting voices, Able Fine Art NY Gallery seeks to create a bridge between times and cultures. Besides Solomon and Gorgy, the artists represented in the exhibition include Suena, Misun Chun, Clara L. Mikimoto, Youngho Seock, Ssungjung Kim, Hakyung Lee, Boyeon Kim, Dongyoon Park, Changdae Park,  Soonja Kang.
