ESTABLISHED GALLERY presents
UNFETTERED by Jamel Robinson
March 14th - April 8th


Established Gallery is pleased to present UNFETTERED, a solo exhibition by Jamel Robinson. This exhibition presents a new body of work that represents a stylistic departure and conceptual shift in Robinson’s work. In 2018 Robinson abandoned brushes and traditional painting tools and began using his body as the catalyst for his practice. Working on the floor, Robinson works improvisationally, intuitively choosing colors and using his hands as the vessels to transmute onto the surface. These new and powerful works are embedded with emotion and physicality, cumulating in deeply personal and expressive paintings.

“Throughout the endeavor of finding a new way to work, two words kept coming into my mind: assuage, meaning to lessen the intensity of and unfettered, meaning free or unrestrained. As my practice has evolved, I have allowed myself to listen to my internal voice and it is through this methodology that the works come to fruition. As questions arise, the answers are in the paintings, and in some instances, additional moments for examination. What has been personal is in fact universal — a desire to understand life, spirituality and purpose through marks on a painted surface. Some of the marks reflect language and play an important role in the works, nodding to the internal through my own poetry and the external, coming out of songs that I listen to while creating.  These words, the self-referential made colorful, are often embedded within the layers of paint on the surface…..Circumstance is my muse.”
-Jamel Robinson

Slate and Bone
new work 
by Nancy Lunsford 

March 18 - April 19, 2020
Opening Reception: Postponed
Artists Talk: 
postponed

The title of Nancy Lunsford’s seventh solo exhibition at 440 Gallery “Slate and Bone” takes its name from several small drawings on broken slates. These pieces were created over 20 years ago and relate to the American history of slavery and the African diaspora. The exhibit includes other more recent work, some with social commentary and others simply honoring the practice of art. A group of figure drawings on paper are included as a tribute to the founding of 440 Gallery fifteen years ago when Lunsford and Shanee Epstein organized a pop-up exhibit with artists who had been meeting for a weekly sketch group in her studio. The current show is a mix of old and new, with subjects serious and light-hearted. Lunsford says of her work: “Art has always been a way for me to express the inexplicable, to escape the inescapable. Like life, it is both a struggle and a joy, provocative and healing.”

Lunsford has exhibited her work extensively over the last 30 years. Before founding 440 Gallery, Lunsford ran Wisteria Artspace, a gallery in Carroll Gardens. In addition to exhibitions, She also produced shadow theater and other performances at Wisteria, including a collaboration with Jill Reinier and Flying Bridge Community Arts. Lunsford began her career as a portrait artist and illustrator and did courtroom sketching for CBS. During ten years abroad, she studied the indigenous art of shadow theater in Indonesia and exhibited with Urart Gallery in Ankara Turkey. She wrote art criticism for the Turkish Daily News and developed a contemporary shadow theater production, performed at SanArt International Arts Symposium in Ankara. As she steps down from an active role at 440 Gallery after fifteen years, Lunsford looks forward to exploring new creative challenges.
