(Booth #B6)
At the most recent Sotheby's New York auction this past December, Jaehyo Lee's functional art table, 0121-110=110114, placed for $46,875.00, well above the high estimate of $30,000.00 in their 20th Century Design Sale. CYNTHIA-REEVES looks forward to showing brand new functional art from the studio, to be unveiled at the upcoming fair.
Following Shen Chen's recent WILO Foundation exhibition, which was shown in both Germany and China, CYNTHIA-REEVES will feature as the curatorial focal point, a large black and white triptych from the artist's 2007 series. To create his subtle ombre surfaces, Chen paints with a variety of traditional Chinese brushes. Working with the canvas on the studio floor, he layers the surface by moving progressively top down, in a vertical motion. The discrete horizontal lines visible on the surface are a record of where each vertical brushstroke began and stopped. It is this meticulous layering of color that achieves the resonant tonal hues of his paintings, and which also manifests his rigorous discipline in how line is supported by breath. The artist's next international exhibition will be in Shanghai later this year.
CYNTHIA-REEVES is proud to debut the photographic work of Chilean artist and award winning journalistic photographer, Tomas Munita. Munita travels the world exploring ritual, culture, and crisis, capturing his diverse subject matters with arresting beauty and poignancy. In 2010 Munita won the All Roads National Geographic Award for his work on Lost Harvest-the death of the Loa River. Recent areas of exploration include Kabul, Kandahar and Kashmire and the HIV epidemic. CYNTHIA-REEVES will have two photographs depicting daily life: one of monks from Laos, and the second of children from Vamna, India
