Off the Wall
Recent Photography and Mixed Media by Shanee Epstein
May 16 - June 23, 2013
Opening Reception: Sunday, May 19, 4:00 - 7:00 PM
Shanee Epstein's solo show, Off the Wall, is a stark departure from her four earlier shows at 440 Gallery. This installation consists of large architectural photographs hung above small, collaged cigar boxes. One's initial impression might be that the work was made by two different artists. In a way, this is true. Almost every working artist struggles or experiments with conflicting impulses. Most leave that conflict in the studio and choose to show work that "hangs together". Epstein instead embraced this conflict. The abstract formal aesthetic of her photographs appear to be the antithesis of the colorful collaged boxes, but together they create a balanced whole. Off the Wall will be open to the public May 16 - June 23, 2013, with an opening reception on Sunday, May 19, 4:00-7:00 PM.
