Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present our first solo exhibition by Mary Jane Duffy and our third solo exhibition by Linda LaBella.

Mary Jane Duffy is a Chicago-based painter who makes works which are based on an interpretation of land and the landscape of information. The artist sees the influence of human activity and human perception as a significant and important diversion from the otherwise natural order of things. Employing the languages of map making, pointillist obfuscation, and digital noise, Duffy creates a series of works that resonate with uneasiness and ambiguity towards the human condition and its impact.

Linda LaBella is a New York-based painter of intuitive abstraction. Her technique combines drawing and painting together into an inseparable whole, led by a process whereby the making of an artwork is self-directed; the art equivalent of “automatic writing”. LaBella listens to the work; allows it to grow organically, and in doing so a voice emerges. In the artist’s own words, these works are “abstractions of sub-thought projections”. Such primal aesthetics and mark making share underlying attributes with cave painting, hieroglyphics, and other forms of prehistorical art yet are starkly contemporary and deeply forward-looking.
