Biography on Antoinette Von Grone

It is a rarity for an artist to receive a green card in the United States on the grounds of “Exceptional Talent”, and it is here we introduce Antoinette Von Grone.  Born in 1954 as a Baroness in Kirchbrak, West Germany, Von Grone’s journey as an artist moves gracefully between silk, tiles, and murals to the canvas. Formal studies of Textile Design & the Arts took Von Grone to the College for Applied Arts in Hannover, Germany, the University for Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria and the private Haute Couture school, Ecole Gogele, in Paris, France, whereupon she earned a degree in Fashion Design.



Quiet and bold, regal and stoic, it is with humor, reverence and intrigue that we greet Von Grone’s new body of work.  Her range is diverse as her subjects, both grand and familiar; taking us from the rural farm and animal life of Northern California to Africa.  She celebrates the local and exotic in her “Icons of Nature” with gilded Dutch gold leaf on panel, bringing fantasy and whimsy to her “Animal Ancestors” and captures the human spirit with her return to portraiture.

Brazil & the Amazon River Basin

Artist’s Statement

 

Brazil and the Amazon River Basin have been the subject and inspiration of my work for more than thirty years.  Naturalistic forms resembling beeves, vertebrae, cocoons, anthills, platt forms and insects are spread across the surface of the work.  The Amazon River is an apt metaphor for the act of churning up remembered objects and sights, gathered while traveling along its rough course.  

 

The work transcribes a memory of these objects and impressions of what was seen and felt.  In its flow, the river boils and object to the surface only to swallow it up again to resurface later.  My palette is often subdued beneath a layer of darkness, suggesting mystery.  These impressions are a memory of the forever bound on both sides by a high, dark jungle; foreboding and beautiful. When the jungle takes you in, it takes you in whole.  

 

In visiting the region three or four times a year I find that the landscape has many moods.  These new paintings show the contrast and conflict between the beauty of the Amazon and its continued destruction. Modern man sees the rainforest as a tremendous resource and at the same time we are in the process of depleting it.  Although the indigenous groups have lived harmoniously in the that environment for generations, we cannot yet find the balance needed to protect this resource for the future.

Paul Van Lith

Paul Van Lith Sculpting the Figure features 28 color pages of artwork by Van Lith to be featured in the upcoming show 7/25 gouge at Erickson Fine Art Gallery in Healdsburg, CA.  Catalog release May 20th.

Paul Van Lith is a local Northern California sculptor focusing on classical and abstracted figurative sculpture.  Born in San Francisco in 1949, Paul lived, traveled and studied throughout the US, Japan and Greece.  

 

Paul Van Lith's admiration of the figure is explored in both the serious and playful studies of form, shape, and texture throughout the work.  Homage is no doubt given to art history's great sculptors Constantin Brancusi, Marino Marini, Leonard Baskin, and Henry Moore.

7 / 25 gouge features over two dozen new works in wood and large outdoor sculptures made of concrete and stucco.  A color catalog showcasing the artist's diversity of figurative works over 30 years will be released and available opening night.

Opening evening reception Saturday, May 20th 2017 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. The exhibition runs from May 20 - June 20th.
