Marc Selwyn Fine Art presents two exhibitions “Jay DeFeo: Into Other Worlds,” and  “Flowers 1973-1991,” by Hannah Wilke (1940–1993). The exhibitions will remain open through March 25, 2023.

Jay DeFeo Untitled, 1987 Graphite, pastel, oil pencil, and tempera on rag board 11 x 14 inches (MSFA#17808)

“Jay DeFeo: Into Other Worlds”  the gallery’s fourth exhibition of the legendary artist’s work.  Known as a key figure in the Bay Area Beat Culture of the 1950’s and a pioneer in the Abstract Expressionist movement, DeFeo (1929-1989) continues to inspire generations of artists with her astonishingly diverse and innovative range of works.

A conversation about the exhibition between curator Helen Molesworth and art critic David Pagel will take place in the gallery on February 5, 2023 at 4pm. RSVP is required to attend the event in person. If you are unable to attend, the conversation will be live-streamed on Instagram at @marcselwynfineart.

“Flowers 1973-1991” is an exhibition of drawings by the late American artist Hannah Wilke (1940–1993). This exhibition will focus on the flower image and includes works in watercolor and sepia ink on paper.  It will also include a grouping of three of Wilke’s abstract vaginal forms in ceramic from the 1970’s, highlighting the relationship between her works on paper and her three-dimensional sculpture.

A pioneering figure in feminist art, Wilke explored issues of beauty, gender, and Western cultural convention with a diverse approach that included photography, performance, video, sculpture, and drawing. The first woman of her generation to make vaginal art, Wilke asserted ownership over her own body and was a key figure in the feminist art movement of the 1960’s and 70’s.
