Artist’s Statement: “Color is the essential element in my work. The always square paintings are acrylic on canvas, combining spontaneous dry-brush techniques with flat, hard-edged shapes. Many of the objects which animate the edges are from my surroundings. They may include tracings of historical or familial items such as antique tools, keys, scissors, or shears. The tension built between the restful center and the active borders creates work that is bold, simple, and direct.”- S. Adam

The work of Lina Hsiao speaks for the desire of energy lacking. Her work primarily deals with the human form, lost and locked in search of inspiration.
Opening reception 8pm http://freddysbar.com/events/2014-03-15/
What may come across as vulgarity is actually a reminder of the untamable human natures inside each of us that are often suppressed deep into the part of subconsciousness most difficult to revive . Formally trained as an illustrator, Hsiao’s creative privileges were very much stifled. Now aiming to work past such angst and hostility towards accepting outside direction, Hsiao’s current body is focused on the revival of her instincts.

Through a literal interpertation of corruption Hughes creates provocative and disturbing narratives. Predominantly showing humanly beast-like creatures in overtly sexual postures, her overall comment provokes disgust and intrigue in the viewer from ideas stemmed in greed and arrogance. Hughes has been part of Group shows at Elizabeth Foundation, Gowanus Studio Space, Grace exhibition space.

Freddy’s Bar is very proud to announce a show of recent drwings by Brooklyn artist Katie Welty. http://brooklynblackbird.blogspot.com/
Freddy’s Bar is very proud to announce a show of recent work by Brooklyn artist E.K. Buckley, titled Crows and Nudes. Her focus is bold, eerie nudes. Her subject matter is often drawn from her early training in music and literature, and her love of dance is clear in her uncanny ability to capture the body in movement. Buckley’s work in ink includes an austere series of crows; simple gestures that show her reliance on the raw mark, at times describing the bird in just a few stark and fast pen strokes.
Freddy’s Bar is very proud to announce a show of recent work by Brooklyn artist Nancy Drew.
Nancy Drew’s mixed-media portrait paintings of Cher explore the realm of celebrity, beauty and aging in the 21st Century’s hyper-pop landscape. Employed as much as a stand-in for ‘everywoman’ as for her off-center iconic status, images of Cher from the 70′s are printed onto contemporary magazine pages, mounted to canvas and amplified with collage, glitter, beading and various forms of adornment and deconstruction.
Also showing: special Cher video mash-up by legendary video artist Donald O’Finn. http://www.donaldofinn.com/

The artists in “Sonic” demonstrate the ability to produce work that explores the idea of sound. Until recently, it was debatable whether sound art could be considered a fine art genre but after numerous artists took on the serious task of producing works that pushed the sound barrier it is now considered a fine art practice. However, “Sonic” is not just limited to those who consciously produce sound artworks. It is also an exploration of those whose projects have a lyrical quality which consciously or unconsciously take on sensibilities found in musical genres such as rock and roll. And how they use that imagery to ponder more social and political issues. It is also an examination of sound appropriated through different schematics of subject matter, mark-making and materials.
Opening reception Sat March 10th at 6pm. Exhibition runs until April 3rd & is on view 7 days a week from noon until 4am.

http://www.donaldofinn.com/ Since 1980 Mr O’Finn has re-purposed, re-contextualized, effected, and weaved appropriated media samples into “the dreams a television Might have”. The work represents television both as a medium, message, and as a device of conscious and subconscious cultural significance. His work has screened on both coasts, including The Hirshhorn Museum of Art in Washington DC., as well as around the world; including The National Museum of Art in Poland, The Busan Film Festival in Korea, a Traveling Art project throughout Portugal, as well as a solo exhibition in Berlin Germany. http://www.youtube.com/user/prognosisgrim
