Yigal Ozeri / Untitled; Zuzana (Triptych) (Detail images) / 2013 / Oil on paper mounted on wood / 12 x 55 inches



Galerie Brandt, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Opening today, May 22, 2013

In this new series of hyper-realistically painted triptychs, Ozeri lifts his art to a higher plane. In Triads, each triptych displays subtle progressions of movement, like movie stills, frozen in time. Instilling temporal, fleeting qualities, which challenge Ozeri’s ritualistic translation of the perfect trinity into perfectly balanced triptych composition.

Senses and Being-Retro

Retrospective & 75th Birthday Celebration

Nitsch Museum, Mistelbach, Austria

Through Summer 2014

Mike Weiss Galley is proud to have represented world-renowned Viennese action painter Hermann Nitsch for the last 10 years. Pushing the line between video, performance, music, installation, and painting with each exhibition, Nitsch’s concept of total art ("Gesamtkunstwerk") has transformed contemporary practices. Exploring existentialism, the intersection of violence and culture, and religious ritual and sacrifice, Nitsch’s oeuvre sits at the vanguard of experimental and multimedia modes, and he is considered as one of his generation’s greatest artists.

On his 75th birthday, we congratulate him and highlight some of his achievements over the last few years. Happy Birthday from all of us here at Mike Weiss Gallery.

Michael Brown / Studio View / 2013

Mike Weiss Gallery is now formally representing artist Michael Brown, whose inaugural exhibition at the gallery will take place September 2013.

Infusing each object with formal qualities of design and delicate minimalism, Brown weaves together science, nature, architecture, industry, and history into harmonious byproduct, producing forms in the vein of arte povera. In his new series of steel and copper sculptures, found objects combine with industrial materials, intuitively forming architectural and model-like sculptures of hollow skeletal forms, each simultaneously mechanistic and organic, abstract but evocative of representation.

At age 31, Michael Brown has already been widely exhibited around the world, including New York, Paris, Los Angeles, Ontario, and Belgium. He began to show with galleries Yvon Lambert and Marc Straus in his 20s, and his work has been reviewed in the New York Times, Artforum, and TimeOut New York. Brown is included in prominent public and private collections including the the Beth Rudin deWoody Permanent Collection; the collection of Sherry and Joel Mallin, New York, NY; and the Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation, Jersey City, NJ.
