LUKE SMALLEY: SUNDAY DRIVE
JILL GREENBERG: NEW BEARS


LUKE SMALLEY: SUNDAY DRIVE
November 5th – December 19th, 2009


ClampArt is proud to present Sunday Drive, a series of photographs by artist, Luke Smalley (1955-2009). Sunday Drive is Smalley’s final and arguably most impressive body of work. The exhibition coincides with the release of the artist’s monograph of the same title from Twin Palms Publishers, and is the artist’s fourth book.

In this highly narrative series, Smalley tells the story of three gorgeous young women who mysteriously primp and preen, often lost in deep, inexplicable reverie. The threesome eventually piles into a vintage, yellow convertible for a lovely summer drive. It soon becomes clear that the girls are on their way to the state penitentiary to visit their incarcerated boyfriends. The second half of Sunday Drive consists of photographs of the attractive young men killing time in the slammer waiting for their sweethearts to arrive.
Consistent with his earlier work, Smalley successfully constructs a world of a timeless era. His whimsical and sexy images toy with the intersection of fashion and societal ideals of femininity and masculinity.

Smalley’s work has appeared in such prestigious publications as Dazed and Confused, Tokion, Vogue Hommes International, ID, and The New York Times Magazine.

This exhibition is in loving memory of the artist, who died unexpectedly at the age of 53 in May 2009.

For more information and images please contact Brian Paul Clamp, Director, or see www.clampart.com. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.





JILL GREENBERG: NEW BEARS
November 5th – December 19th, 2009



ClampArt is pleased to announce “New Bears,” Jill Greenberg’s fourth solo show at the gallery.

Jill Greenberg first established her artistic reputation as a preeminent celebrity photographer, shooting such Hollywood personalities as David Bowie, Liza Minelli, Drew Barrymore, Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, and many more. Her images have appeared in numerous prestigious periodicals including Time, Wired, Entertainment Weekly, and Rolling Stone.

In 2001, Greenberg turned her lens on celebrities of a different sort—namely monkeys and apes, many of whom have appeared in film and television roles. These brilliant portraits were warmly received, and paved the path for photographs of a wide range of other animals, including most recently bears.

Constructing outdoor studios in Calgary and Vancouver, Greenberg photographed grizzlies, black bears, and a polar bear, among others. As with her celebrity photographs and monkey portraits, the artist captures an astonishing array of personalities, expressions, and emotions in her ursine friends.

Printed on a massive scale, Greenberg’s bears insistently demand our undivided attention; yet the gorgeous prints also seduce us in a subtler (and perhaps more powerful) manner with their sensuous, painterly textures achieved by the artist’s expert digital finishing.

ClampArt first presented Greenberg’s bear portraits in 2007. However, in preparation for her second monograph from Little, Brown & Company, the artist has spent the last two years adding substantially to this portfolio. ClampArt’s exhibition coincides with the release of Bear Portraits (Little, Brown & Company: New York City, 2009), 104 pp, Hardcover, $26.99.

For more information and images please contact Brian Paul Clamp, Director, or see www.clampart.com. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
