Artists included world-renowned hyperrealist sculptor Carole Feuerman and hyperrealist painter Yigal Ozeri, the internationally recognized fashion photographer Raphael Mazzucco, Danish watercolor painter Ole Aakjaer, body painter Andy Golub, and the American figurative artist Alex Katz. The show will run from March 28th through April 21st, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, March 28th, from 6-8pm at 231 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10011.

Golub will be painting three live female models in the gallery space, creating a painting out of the female figure that will later be available as a print.


Ole Aakjær has gained recognition as the one of the leading artists from Denmark. His watercolor and ink works in large scale format shows his signature style, creating portraits laden with multilayered symbolism. The natural imperfections the artistic process left behind form a colorful, highly imaginative narrative.

The Connor Brothers is the pseudonym for British artists James Golding and Mike Snelle. The duo came to prominence in 2012 and for several years maintained their anonymity by using a fictional biography. Their identities were revealed in 2014 in a major feature by Mick Brown in The Telegraph magazine, allowing them to undertake more ambitious projects. Major collections include the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Penguin books art collection and the Omer Koc and Niarchos Collections.

Carole A. Feuerman is an American Hyper-Realist sculptor. Along with artists like Duane Hansonand John DeAndrea, she focuses on figurative sculptures executed with a startlingly high degree of realism. Her works are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the El Paso Museum of Art, and the Bass Museum of Art in Miami, among others. Notably, she is also represented in many prestigious private collections around the world, including in the collection of the Emperor of Japan, and President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton. Feuerman lives and works in New York, NY.

Andy Golub is a world renowned artist specializing in public art and body art. His public performances have changed nudity laws in New York City and opened the doors for free expression for many other artists. Founder of the international non-profit Human Connection Arts, Golub's work has been featured in many events in NYC, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin and San Francisco.

Alex Katz is an American painter renowned for his large-scale depictions of landscapes, flowers, and portraits. Katz’s flattening of forms, simplification of detail, and alla-prima paint application, are trademarks of his work. Having achieved widespread critical acclaim and commercial success, his work serves as a beacon to younger generations of artists, including Elizabeth Peyton and Julian Opie. Katz maintains residences in Lincolnville, ME, and New York, NY. Today, his works are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate Modern in London, and the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., among others.

Raphael Mazzucco specializes in multifaceted, female-centric images that reflect his various creative interests and strengths.

His multimedia photography is featured in the private collections of well-known names from Tommy Hilfiger to Rhianna, as well as fellow artists Peter Beard and Damien Hirst.

Yigal Ozeri is a contemporary Israeli painter known for his photorealistic renderings of young women amidst natural settings, such as rainforests and deserts. Ozeri takes his own digital photographs, later editing them in Photoshop and printing them out to use as reference material for his highly detailed oil paintings. His work tends to have a subtle tone of allegory and fantasy, while simultaneously being incredibly realistic and almost indistinguishable from a photograph. Ozeri was born in Israel in 1958, and is most notably included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and the Albertina Museum in Vienna. He lives and works in New York, NY

Reisha Perlmutter is a contemporary American painter known for her realistic depictions of nude women emerging from underwater. In her paintings, the artist explores notions of primal awareness and the need to be accepting of all body types. “Connecting with our bodies with a deeply physical awareness allows us to acknowledge all aspects of our physicality; our scars, our sickness, our health, and our beauty,” she has said. Born in 1990 in Naples, FL, she studied at Bates College in Lewiston, ME, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before receiving her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in 2015.  She has gone on to exhibit her work both in the United States and abroad. Perlmutter currently lives and works in New York, NY.

Chase Contemporary is pleased to announce Two Doors Down, a two-person exhibition with abstract painters and artist couple Stanley Casselman and Hallie Hart. The show will reveal Stanley Casselman’s new Liquid series, reflective acrylic paintings coated in silver nitrate, along with action-painter Hallie Hart’s new round paintings, a series of atmospheric sphere-shaped canvases. The exhibition will run from April 4th- April 28th, 2019. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 4th, from 6-8 pm at the gallery’s 521 w. 23rd street location.

Casselman’s new liquid series is the latest development in his practice of painting on polyester screen. Casselman has experimented with polyester screen, typically used for silkscreen printing, for over thirty years. His works are created from the backside of the screen by pushing paint in the direction it’s to be viewed. Working in such a fashion, Casselman has pioneered a host of unique surfaces. Casselman’s technique includes throwing, splashing, pouring and then manipulating the resulting mass with a squeegee. The Liquid paintings are made with an additional layer of silver nitrate (spray chrome) creating a mirror-like surface.

The concept of gestural expressionism showed Hallie Hart a way to channel the life force and methodical chaos of everything happening around her into paintings. Aligning with several elements of Pollock in his conceptual and physical approach to picture making, Hart works with a canvas on the floor, using only her hands to manipulate, flick, splatter or throw paint. Further defining Hart’s unique practice is her use of catwalks, some spanning eight meters in order to get in the middle of her action painting process.

Stanley Casselman is a mid-career New York artist whose richly textured paintings subtly reference the history of abstraction. His works often self-consciously appropriate the signature styles of twentieth and twenty-first century artists from Mark Rothko to Gerhard Richter, while at the same time introducing novel techniques and procedures that expand the discourse and material possibilities of contemporary painting. In a 2017 interview with Casselman, David Anfam (Senior Curator of the Clyfford Still Museum) describes the artist’s work as so “tantalizing and complex” that it “makes you want to come back to it,” and he sees the “mix of randomness and pattern” in Casselman’s paintings as “a figure of life itself.” Casselman has also been favorably reviewed in such publications as Wall Street International, New York Magazine, Forbes, and Huffington Post. He has been interviewed by Brainard Carey (author of The Art World Demystified) for Yale University Radio, and Jerry Saltz has praised his “highly crafted minimalist works.”

Casselman has a record of strong auction results at Phillips, Sotheby’s, and Christie’s, and his work was exhibited in Sotheby’s S|2 space in New York (“Icons: The Art of Appropriation,” 2015) alongside Richard Pettibone, Vic Muniz, Louise Lawler, Mike Bidlo, Banksy, and Richard Prince. International curators such as Joan Young of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (NYC) and Laura Plana Gracia (Barcelona) have curated his work. Casselman’s most recent group exhibition was with Metro Pictures project space in Brooklyn, 7 Herkimer Place in a 2018 show that also included works by Marilyn Minter, Tracey Emin, and Carol Bove. Casselman’s paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation (Los Angeles), Borusan Contemporary (Istanbul, Turkey), New Orleans Museum of Art, Georgia Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art of Bologna (Bologna, Italy), and numerous outstanding private collections around the world.

Hallie Hart is an American born artist raised in New York City. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a M.A. in English Literature and excelled at creative writing. Beyond her passion for writing, Hart felt magnetically drawn to painting with a deep and instant connection to abstract expressionism. Hart interned for abstract painter, Annaleis van Dommelen in Holland and it led to an awakening within that she had never felt before. To Hart the concept of gestural expressionism would allow her to channel the methodical chaos of everything happening around her into moments; paintings. Hart's practice as an artist was then set into motion. 

Aligning with Pollock in his conceptual and physical approach to picture making, Hart has always chosen to be over her work to have a wide angle view of the overall painting and to continuously be able to work around it. However, instead of Pollock's use of sticks and brushes to drip paint, Hart uses only her hands to manipulate, flick, splatter or throw paint. Further defining Hart's unique practice is her use of catwalks, some spanning eight meters in order to physically get over or into the middle of her pieces. 

Hart in 2016 took her love of film and produced and wrote a short documentary titled "Fragments, Michael Gitlin". The film is a fascinating and provocative expose into the life and work of Mr. Gitlin. Hart has also begun a documentary series on art and music and will begin filming in the spring of 2019. Hart is a women's empowerment activist, and is a leading business woman as well. She will be launching HX NYC incorporating the beauty of her paintings into wearable art that cross over to jewelry, apparel and home lines. 

Hart has received numerous awards including the prestigious, GemLucArt Award. Hart's paintings have been exhibited widely and her work can be found in numerous corporate and private collections across Europe, Asia and the United States. Hart lives between and maintains studios in New York, London and Monaco.
