Madoo Conservancy: ‘Not Nature’ Exhibit w/ Lambrecht, Miller & Yektai / Opens 11.24

Not Nature:

Laurie Lambrecht, Steve Miller, and Darius Yektai

November 24 – December 22, 2018 


The Madoo Conservancy is pleased to present Not Nature, a group exhibition with East End-based artists Laurie Lambrecht, Steve Miller and Darius Yektai. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, November 24th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and it will be on view through December 22, 2018, on Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.. This is our second annual artist-curated fall exhibition.

Each artist featured in Not Nature reveals their own profound connection to our environment, as land, sea and air are absorbed through the senses and materialized as their art form. While nature remains the source and essence of their work, artists Lambrecht, Miller, and Yektai have taken their own various departures from naturalistic representation. We look forward to welcoming this exhibition of local artists in our Summer Studio, the original studio of Madoo’s founder, Robert Dash.

Laurie Lambrecht photographs the bark of trees, prints the images onto linen and then embroiders with luminous threads to create an original hybrid that embraces both the source photo and the fabric on which she sews. The reference of traditional roles of women, fashion and high art collide with intimacy and grace. Steve Miller’s decade-long project to x-ray the Amazon speaks to ecological and environmental issues through his printed plants and animals on surfboards and paintings. Darius Yektai employs bravura brushstrokes in his expressionistic still lifes as he plays with both real and illusory picture planes through a coating of resin—painted both under and on top of.

The artists:

Laurie Lambrecht, a native of Bridgehampton, is a visual artist working in photography and fiber. She has had numerous solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including a recent show at The Drawing Room in East Hampton. Her photographs are in both private and public collections, including the National Gallery of Art, the Parrish Art Museum, and Guild Hall Museum.

Steve Miller was born in Buffalo, divides his time between Sagaponack and New York City. He has presented over 50 solo exhibitions at major institutions in the United States, China, France, and Germany. His recent monograph, Radiograohic: X-ray Photo Inventions was published by Glitterati Editions.

Darius Yektai was born in Southampton and currently lives and works in Bridgehampton. His solo exhibitions include Tripoli Gallery, Solomon Contemporary, Keyes Art Projects, and Sara Nightingale Gallery. In 2017, his monumental sculpture was featured in the exhibition Yektai at Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton.

Working with James Paul Cheung, all three artists have created Mongolian cashmere scarves for Ergun Korchin, which will be available for sale at the opening and at our Holiday Market on December 8th.

A portion of proceeds will benefit the Madoo Conservancy.
