SURFACE TENSION — Saatchi Art Presents Recent Graduates from the Top US Art Schools

New York Exhibition October 2015

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Saatchi Art (saatchiart.com)
today announced it will present an exhibition of the best of America’s
art graduates, with new works by 10 artists curated by Saatchi Art’s
Chief Curator, Rebecca Wilson.

This exhibition, which will take place in New York, highlights the work
of exceptional emerging artists from all over the world who are part of
Saatchi Art.

Entitled “Surface Tension,” the exhibition will present new works by
some of the most promising emerging artists from the top art schools in
the United States. Highlights include Ioana Manolache’s (Columbia)
paintings that investigate the possibilities of materiality and
illusion; a series of portraits by Alex Jackson (University of
Wisconsin-Madison) exploring issues of race and social inclusion; the
‘reliefs’ of Erin Morrison (UCLA) which exist somewhere between painting
and sculpture; and Sarah Faux’s (Yale) moments of heightened sensation
in paintings of the human body.

“We are really excited to be presenting the work of such talented
artists, many of whom are showing their work in New York for the first
time. After researching all the thesis shows in the US, I feel very
excited to be sharing the outstanding work of these artists,” said
Rebecca Wilson.

This exhibition is part of Saatchi Art’s ongoing ‘Invest
in Art’ series
, which features outstanding emerging artists from
around the world whose works suggest great promise and investment
potential.

All works in the exhibition in New York will be for sale. There will
also be an online exhibition with additional works by each artist, which
can be viewed and purchased at www.saatchiart.com/show/surfacetension.

During the exhibition Rebecca Wilson will be available to give
collectors free one-on-one art advisory sessions on purchasing works by
emerging artists. Please email Nicole Garton at Nicole@saatchiart.com
