Reba Dickerson Hill, American artist.
Member Philadelphia Water Color Club, (life, board directors since 1992), Sumi-e Society of America. Hill, Reba Dickerson was born on February 17, 1918 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Daughter of Evan Thomas and Reba Henrietta (Tyree) Dickerson.Bachelor of Science in Education, Cheyney (Pennsylvania) University, 1939. Postgraduate, Barnes Foundation, Merion, Pennsylvania, 1947. Postgraduate, University Exeter, England, 1987. Reba Dickerson Hill has been listed as a notable Artist by Marquis Who's Who. Married Harold Woodrow Hill, March 15, 1940. Children: Reba, Harold Junior, Allan. Furniture, Still Lifes and Domestic Objects by Artists. Borowsky Gallery Gershman Y 401 S. "Please do not sit on chairs, " warns a sign at the entrance to Living It Up!
The living room-like gallery is especially suitable for this show of domestic artworks and still-lifes. If one foolishly sat on a portrait chair by Johanna Goodman, one would risk getting pinched: these chairs are already occupied. Two side chairs draped with sculptural clothing and suitably accessorized become F.(with a toothy grin on his broad face), and his wife Eleanor, who wears a painted fur coat with a real fake fur collar. Her gloved hands rest in her lap.
The tips of the front chair legs are painted to look like tiny shoes (Poetic license on Goodman's part - I've seen Eleanor's shoes and they are huge). Near the big marble fireplace, Jack and Jackie O sit side by side. Across from them is Marilyn, her gold dress blown up above her knees, reminiscent of the famous Seven Year Itch poster; however, the Marilyn chair is oddly headless.
Marilyn Keating's mostly wood sculpture has always been beautifully constructed. The work shown here seems a bit more muted in color than early pieces.The most recent, Love Bite, is executed in dark monochrome green and black. The floor-mounted vase shape containing tall thistle-like plants constructed of wood is flanked by a pair of praying mantises in place of handles. Their elongated forms emphasize the verticality of the whole. The headlessness of one illustrates the title of the piece (maybe that's what happened to Goodman's Marilyn, though I thought it was the female who bit off the male's head). Keating is also showing Toxic TV: Just a Little Collateral Damage, a comment on the Gulf War in which blood red "sand" bearing tanks and dollars pours from a television set decorated with a yellow ribbon, and Punch Judy Theater, a stage containing a family of articulated puppets. This work continues Keating's long-term exploration of the theme of domestic abuse. In a lighter vein are ceramic objects by Ruth Borgenicht: industrial-size OFF/ON switches and Three Prong Outlets attached in appropriate places on the wall.
There's also the extra-big timer And Time Stood Still, set at three minutes for eternity. Eschewing enlargement, Borgenicht's typewriter It Spoke to Me, with its smiling red mouth, and the Consumer toaster with white teeth gnashing in the toast slots, are faithful, if surreal, renditions of slightly old-fashioned machines. Harry Anderson is showing his lamps composed of cleverly selected and joined found objects of china, glass, metal and other materials (including a badger shaving brush). View Finder is an old View Master 3-D stereoscope containing a selection of pictures of Chicago (the stockyards are especially good). It's placed so that it appears to be binoculars offering a view out the window.A Cowgirl lamp is constructed from slightly curved metal spronging through space and Agitator includes a part from an old washing machine. Three painters from Rodger LaPelle gallery have works in this show. Mason Rader is showing Exotic Vistas, which elegantly combines three elements in three distinct styles and palettes: a painting of furniture composed of cattle horns, an ice-cream-color scene of Japan, and monochrome green cut-out silhouettes of women balancing jugs on their heads. John Thornton is showing two bright-colored, hard-edge surreal still-lifes. These scenes initially appear playful, but shifts of scale and point of view become increasingly ominous.
In one, nesting Russian dolls seem to be related to skulls of different sizes. Tinker Toys and bizarre wallpaper contribute to the nightmare effect. Illusionistic play may be the primary purpose of Fred Danziger's small, engaging constructed paintings. A shadowbox effect is generated by a real chain hanging on either side of the frame of a painting crossed by a painted chain and padlock.In the cool distance beyond the chain we see a walled castle in Cahors, France. In the formally related Transcendent Passage, a shuttlecock is reproduced in two painted versions of decreasing size, one of which casts a painted shadow as believable as the real shadow of the real shuttlecock outside the frame. The third shuttlecock appears to fly into open sky. Patricia Brock Ingersoll is best known for paintings of rocks her solo show at Rosenfeld Gallery opens Feb. 4, though she painted a Tuscan Landscape for the Mural Program.
She's showing a Tuscan Armoire (1993) with a Pompeii-influenced architectural perspective on the doors, an Italian landscape on the interior and small trees on the drawer fronts. A complementary folding screen also displays a Tuscan Landscape. Ingersoll is also showing a couple of traditional still lifes in pastel on black paper.
While Thornton and Danziger pictorially play with elements of domestic interiors, I'm not sure why traditional still lifes like Ingersoll's and John DeVlieger's were included in the otherwise surreal manipulations of objects which dominate the show; however, both Ingersoll's and DeVlieger's work is attractive. DeVlieger uses traditional elements suggestive of Flemish still-life: patterned carpeting, statuary fragments and, in one work, a brilliant parrot beside a Chinese vase. Two notable Philadelphia artists are being celebrated in a memorial exhibition at the Klein Gallery. Her paintings and drawings are generally centered on the human figure, though often in the context of nature. In Tiberino's work a meandering line like a knotted thread defines form as it twists and turns through the composition.
This is a small selection of work from a prolific artist, but it covers some of her major themes. The narrative quality of Worn Paths (1985) is typical. The scene of an old woman leaning on a stick as she walks a dark path through tangled jungle-like growth is memorable. In the Chagall-like pastel We Three (1990), a smiling family clusters under a copious red umbrella.
Perry's Garden flourishes, Eden-like, around two figures leaning in the shadow of a gnarled tree. All these vignettes invite the viewer to conjure stories. Graphite, a favorite medium for Tiberino, is often heavily worked in layers of dense shiny black, sometimes enhanced with a softer oily black, perhaps oil pastels or litho crayon. Thin Uncle Richard (1974) is dressed up but not ebullient. His grizzled beard is laid in with even squiggles, but his eyes and top hat are heavily shadowed in velvety blacker-than-black, rendered in Tiberino's recursive line.
Contemplative Queenie (1983) is seen through a window surrounded by carefully observed vegetation. A nude study from 1959 is perhaps the earliest work in the show. Though not attempting to be more than a study, it is beautifully drawn. A seductively posed self-portrait To Joe from 1967 reveals a profile echoed in the charming portrait of her daughter drawn some 19 years later.Cherry Blossoms (1976), the only pure landscape in the show, is a tour de force of broken color and dramatic transitions - from the abstracted sunlit arches of barren branches, to the dense brilliant confetti of heavily blooming lower ones, to the hidden dark knotted trunk underneath. Human presence is implied by a nearby wall. Its creamy profile catches the light and seems to bend ever so slightly under the weight of the cascading flower-laden boughs. Her work has been exhibited internationally.
Before the Rains (1991) is a colorful puzzle of a fractured rocky outcropping in blues and reds under a threatening sky. Brushy undergrowth in the foreground is highlighted in white.
In Before the Snows (1991) the simple blunt masses of mountains recede into the distance. Mysterious Mountain is executed in sequential washes, dark in the foreground and pastel in the misty distance where a pale sun burns above.
The Ninth Wave, a horizontal composition, is flecked with dots of white foam. Formally, it's related to a series of four small horizontal mountain and ocean views executed on sumi-e boards. Hill's earliest work in the show, a pen and ink portrait of a bearded man from 1961, is linked in some ways to a series of paintings on tiles which she completed toward the end of her life.Exhibited here are portraits of the native peoples of Northern Africa, carefully recording details of regional hairstyle, jewelry and dress.
