June Artist Residencies at High Line Nine

Don’t miss these inspiring artists, who have taken up residency at High Line Nine gallery for the month of June.

Abstract artist Jonathan VanDyke is displaying his incredible sewn paintings, each of which can take over a year to construct. These works had originally been created for the Chelsea Music Festival.

From High Line Nine: Inspired by the unbounded media fluidity of early twentieth century artists like Sonia Delauney and Sophie Taeuber-Arp, VanDyke has long explored the relation between abstract painting and the performing arts, including dance and musical compositions. In making works that are rich with metaphor and subtext, he insists that, "abstraction is not forgetting – abstraction is not a way of removing oneself from the world – but a way of going deeper in." Learn more about the exhibit here.

Contemporary artist Georgina Dymock is presenting her second solo exhibition, titled Eyes Closed, Wide Open. The vibrant oil works on enormous canvases are an absolute must-see.

From High Line Nine: Georgia’s practice challenges traditional understandings of her chosen medium as she combines digital and analog modes in image creation, where passages of flatness are an indication of her painting’s digital origins. Physically rendered in oil paint on huge canvas supports, Georgia’s figures are composed of curling, distorted forms that contort within the confines of the canvas boundary, where their exaggerated curves are inspired by the generous, rounded shapes from Picasso’s Neo-classical Period.
