Sarah Cain "Dark Matter" @ Galerie Lelong
Advancing her constant search into new territories of abstraction and the possibilities of painting, Sarah Cain will transform Galerie Lelong with her first monumental floor painting that will cover and activate the entire 2,500 square foot exhibition space. By inviting viewers to step on top of the site-specific work, Cain further explores the boundaries between painting, sculpture, and installation. A dozen new paintings that recontextualize the conventional limits of the medium will also be on view.September 20, 2016
Juan Francisco Casas "(HE)ARTBROKEN"
Juan Francisco Casas recreates photographs he’s taken as large scale, hyperreal ballpoint pen drawings. While compositions of this size have traditionally been used in art to commemorate royalty and historical events, Casas utilizes the medium to memorialize his personal and provocative exploits. Described as “art for the selfie generation,” his seductive portraits transform viewers into voyeurs, intrigued by what happened prior and after the snapshot was taken.August 31, 2016
