New Mission Gallery is pleased to introduce Ryan Cobourn and Roberta Gorin.
Ryan Cobourn’s abstract paintings make allusions to figure, landscape, and still life, depending on his mood. Drawing from traditional themes and subjects, the paintings’ content emerges through a protracted process of deconstructing and rebuilding of the image, based on memory and intuition.
Ryan Cobourn is represented by Nancy Margolis Gallery in New York; Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto, California; Pryor Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia; and Ann Connelly Fine Art in Louisiana. His work has been shown in small group exhibitions alongside the works of Arthur Dove, Milton Avery, Alex Katz, and Bill Jensen.
Ryan Cobourn received his BFA from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and his MFA from Indiana University. He is currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York.
Temerity Jewelry was launched in 2011 by Brooklyn-based designer Roberta Gorin. Her earliest exposure to the world of jewelry came from her grandfather, a fine jeweler working in Manhattan’s diamond district. Her childhood fascination with his craftsmanship and artistry blossomed into a desire to follow the same path.
Taking inspiration from mythology, the thrill of exploration and discovery, and tales of heroism and romance, Roberta seeks to share her fascination with our collective histories and our role in their creation.
Roberta received a BA in cultural anthropology from Bard College, and is working toward her Master's degree in Decorative Arts, Design History and Material Culture at the Bard Graduate Center in New York City. Focusing on theories of adornment throughout history, her studies continue to inform her work.
Every piece is designed and produced in Temerity's Brooklyn studio, using recycled metals and ethically sourced gemstones.
