MAGGIE SHAFRAN IS A MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST IN OILS, PLASTER CASTING, GRAPHITE, PHOTOGRAPHY, AND COLLAGE. The poetry of her process is inherent to her work, echoing themes of impermanence, transformation, and the human impulse to capture and preserve. Shafran is inspired by classic portraiture and still life tradition, visually and symbolically deconstructing art historical tropes. Maggie’s studio is based in Idaho, but she is completing her MFA at ULA Camberwell in London, UK. This will be her first exhibition at Gail Severn Gallery, featuring new work in various mediums.
A MASTER OF POST-PAINTERLY ABSTRACTION, GARY KOMARIN HAS BEEN AT THE FOREFRONT OF CONTEMPORARY ART with a bold yet whimsical style. Over the course of his career, Komarin has developed his unique iconography and flare that garners international recognition. Komarin’s paintings have been exhibited alongside the work of “post-war” masters such as Joan Mitchell, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Philip Guston. This solo exhibition will feature new paintings by Komarin, who invites viewers into a world dictated by color and form.
The March Gail Severn Gallery group exhibition features Kathy Moss, Betsy Margolius, Chris Maynard, Carolyn Olbum, Raphaëlle Goethals, Nicholas Africano, Therman Statom, Pegan Brooke, Jane Rosen, and others.
