With a hint of dark humor, Zane York transforms traditional floral still lives and familiar scenes into unexpected compositions in Nature Morte. Clusters of insects morph into floral arrangements, and cats in the clutches of pigeons rise to the heavens. Executed in the style and skill of famed Dutch masters, York reminds us of the mortality, transience, and vulnerability of all living things.

Biographies

Jamie Bennett is the executive director of ArtPlace America, a partnership among 16 foundations, 8 federal agencies, and 6 financial institutions working to position art and culture as a core sector of community planning and development by investing in, researching, and supporting those who lead and execute creative placemaking projects. To date, ArtPlace has invested $96 million in 262 projects in communities of all sizes. Previously, Jamie worked at the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Columbia University, the Agnes Gund Foundation, The Museum of Modern Art, and the New York Philharmonic.

Esther Robinson has worked on behalf of America's artists for more than 20 years as a foundation program officer, television and film producer/director, technology entrepreneur, and arts activist. From 1999-2006, she was Director of Film/Video and Performing Arts for the Creative Capital Foundation. Since 2006, her non-profit ArtHome has provided financial training and asset building programming to artists and organizations nationally. As ArtBuilt co-director, she oversaw the 2015 "Studio in the Park" Residencies, NYC’s first-ever Mobile Studio program (in partnership with NYC Parks). She is also an award-winning documentary filmmaker and producer.

Kerry McLean, Vice President of Community Development at WHEDco, directs community planning, commercial revitalization, and creative placemaking initiatives, and oversaw cultural programming at their Bronx Music Heritage Center. She has more than 15 years of community development experience and, prior to WHEDco, was a Housing Planner under Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión Jr. She is a Coro NY Neighborhood Leadership Program alumnus, and her work has been featured at the American Planning Association, Municipal Arts Society, Americans for the Arts, NYC Department of Health, NYC Department of Small Business Services, and the International Downtown Association. She has an M.A. in International Development from American University and Master’s of Urban Planning from Hunter College.

Ann Shostrom co-founded First Street Green, converting a derelict lot into an open art space serving the Lower East Side. FSG provides murals, sculpture, and cultural programming in First Park, partnering with artists and community groups. Shostrom exhibits her artworks internationally at galleries and museums. She made public art from decommissioned weapons in Albania. Shostrom is represented by Elizabeth Harris Gallery in New York, and is an Associate Professor at Penn State University. She has a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MFA from Syracuse University.

Juanli Carrión, born in Yecla, Spain, lives and works in New York.

In 2014, he began his series of geopolitical gardens, Outer Seed Shadow, commissioned by NYC Parks, La Nau of Valencia, and Contemporary Art Center La Conservera. His work is based on the identification of cultural conflicts revealed in the definition of social, political, and economic identity. To develop projects, he engages with specific social groups, investigating their natural, emotional, social, and political landscapes, then articulating aesthetic experiences that reflect questionable ideas of Western reality.

Jonathan Kuhn, a 30-year veteran of NYC Parks, serves as its Director of Art & Antiquities and oversees the placement, display, and care of monuments and permanent and temporary art in the City’s parks. He has curated more than 30 exhibitions on the history of parks in New York, and authored the catalogue, The Outdoor Gallery: 40 Years of Public Art in New York City Parks, and the guide, Historic Houses in New York City Parks.

With a hint of dark humor, Zane York transforms traditional floral still lives and familiar scenes into unexpected compositions in Nature Morte. Clusters of insects morph into floral arrangements, and cats in the clutches of pigeons rise to the heavens. Executed in the style and skill of famed Dutch masters, York reminds us of the mortality, transience, and vulnerability of all living things.
