The photo-realist drawings (conte crayon on paper) by Joseph Stashkevetch. I especially like the series “American Muscle and Failed Hybrids,” which includes images of extremely inflated bodybuilders.

SUSPENDED DISBELIEF — featured on artdaily.org

Suspended Disbelief asks its audience to put its disbelief aside. Assembling works by nine contemporary artists, the exhibition challenges its viewers to accept a basic, though unlikely, premise about each piece in the show in order to fully engage in the work. Dana Melamed's wall piece uses unconventional materials to create a sprawling urban landscape that couldn't possibly exist in reality. Marco Breuer's one-of-a-kind photographs are made without a camera or negative, while Joseph Stashkevetch's detailed drawing is difficult to imagine as anything but a photograph. John Chiara and Antonio Murado offer their own unique take on landscape as Yvonne Estrada and Allyson Strafella's intricate, abstract drawings are created using tools not often associated with the medium. Mark Sheinkman makes paintings with graphite, further blurring the medium's boundaries with his subtractive, rather than additive, process. Melanie Willhide's photographs of 50s pinup girls which once read like straight photography are now digitally sliced, mirrored and repeated in a playful demonstration of photography's capacity for the inauthentic.

Dana Melamed is newly represented by Von Lintel Gallery. Von Lintel is thrilled to have her work on view in the gallery.

Von Lintel Gallery is thrilled to announce its new representation of Israeli-born artist Dana Melamed.

Dana Melamed’s work defies categorization. Equal parts drawing, sculpture and collage, her wall pieces are intricately layered explorations of fictitious urban environments. Melamed’s sprawling landscapes do not refer to a particular space or time. Instead the artist creates unpopulated worlds of fractured perspective in which the ongoing struggle of humanity versus nature is explored.

Dana Melamed holds a BA in Architectural Studies from Ort Technikum, Israel. Melamed has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries throughout the United States. Her work will be on view at Von Lintel Gallery through August 31 as part of our summer group show, Suspended Disbelief. The artist lives and works in New Jersey.
