Marc Selwyn Fine Art is pleased to announce the gallery’s first presentation of works by the multimedia artist Helène Aylon. The exhibition features three of Aylon’s abstract series, Elusive Silver, Pouring Formations, and Paintings That Change in Time all created between 1969 and 1977. The seven Elusive Silver works employ industrial materials such as sheet metal, acrylic plastic, and spray paint. Pouring Formations and Paintings That Change in Time consist of linseed oil on paper mounted on Masonite panels.
Beginning in 1969, Aylon experimented with the idea of creating “painting that revealed itself,” in an attempt to introduce feminist consciousness to a medium that had, by then, been firmly dominated by the notion of a heroic, and almost exclusively male, American idiom. Refraining from mark making (“I didn’t want to be hammered in by exactitudes”), she allowed the works themselves to inform the evolution of her ideas.

Also featured in the exhibition is the work of Barry Le Va
