New York, New York (September 8, 2017) – Bicycle Fine Art is proud to present their first showcase of contemporary art at Profiles at 200LEX during the New York Design Center’s ninth annual design event What’s New, What’s Next.’

This year’s highly anticipated event invites designers to participate in lectures, meet and greets, and product introductions. Along with ‘What’s New, What’s Next’, the New York Design Center continues to excel in presenting new and exciting designs in the industry. Following the recent announcement and new collaboration with Profiles, Bicycle Fine Art is pleased to exhibit artworks that display the stellar talents of new and emerging artists and introduce their work to one of the trade’s premier showrooms.

Working closely with Profiles, the artworks presented by Bicycle Fine Art complement the showroom’s decor, as well as each specific vignette featuring the contemporary furniture lines, created by the trade’s most preeminent interior designers. This showcase curated by Bicycle Fine Art founder, Lisa-Thi Beskar, highlights seven artists from across the country. Representing Brooklyn, Christopher Saunders’ paintings, which focus on deconstructed landscapes, and whose minimalist compositions evoke a quiet a contemplative environment, create a prominent focal point in a simple or elaborately decorated room; Massachusetts-based artist Matthew Bielen’s abstract coastal paintings capture the turbulent sensations of the sea and human’s interaction with nature; from Nebraska, Chad Fonfara’s giclee sketches, which are documentation of his hot sculpted glass birds, can be hung alone or grouped with other designs by the artist to present a dynamic collection; and fine art artist Eric Lee of Wisconsin creates highly detailed works that invite the collector to experience a more intimate narrative as they appreciate his experimental use of explosive mixed media.

Hailing from Minneapolis, these visual artists create works of art that evoke contemplation and energy. The emotive paintings by Danielle Voight are calming in their openness with her minimalistic style and soft palette, and, whether they are placed in a small or large room, add a meditative quality to the space; the textures and layers of color in David Donovan Jensen’s abstract paintings introduce airy tones to an open, light, minimalist environment while also adding liveliness that complements both a contemporary or traditional space; and bringing a refreshing take to a modern aesthetic, Neal Perbix’s works reinterpret construction materials that focus on design and decorative elements.

Curated works by Bicycle Fine Art artists will change with each new season as new acquisitions become available at Profiles, located at 200 Lexington Avenue, Suite 1211, New York, NY in the New York Design Center.

View these compelling works at Profiles during the What’s New, What’s Next event on Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the above address. This is a free event. Register for guest list:
