Seduced by Steel, Glass & Concrete: Sharon Florin and Allan Gorman

  • The Yard: City Hall Park (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 17, 2018, 6 - 8 PM

Through shared themes of the industrial, mechanical and architectural, Florin and Gorman explore the seduction of the city by rendering unmistakeable depictions of objects and buildings and distorting and decontextualizing them through seemingly naturalistic means such as reflection, shadow and forced perspective. While implementing a realistic style, each artist fragments the subject to a point verging on abstraction.

Tomo Mori’s work explores her experiences and challenges as a woman and as an immigrant. With feelings of voiceless imperfection she sorts through broken pieces of canvas to create transformative works of art with detailed craftsmanship. She utilizes the imperfection of broken shapes to create mosaic-like collage works that contain a liveliness of movement all their own.

Taking Heart in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction at Equity Gallery

Taking Heart in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction at Equity Gallery

Taking Heart is a joint exhibition by painter Jason Bryant and photographer Charles Cohen.

In this collaborative show, Bryant presents paintings of Cohen’s photographs of the iterations of four advertisements as they appeared throughout the New York City subway system. Cohen has created photographic copies of copies and Bryant has created photo-realistic, original paintings of Cohen’s copies. The process itself asks the often ignored question, what is an original?

While Cohen and Bryant direct us to Walter Benjamin’s landmark essay, Art in The Age of Mechanical Reproduction, as the conceptual basis, they consider it an entry point to diverse cultural insights into socio economics, gender, celebrity, humor and violence.
