Local Project Gallery presents June Kosloff’s first solo show Almost you & me.
Inspired by the sweeping gestures and emotions of the primates and how they signify a direct parallel to human form and emotion, Kosloff worked from photos of primates, using multiple layers of black mediums on black surfaces with minimal additional color. This minimal approach allowed the fluidity and mood of the primates to be captured in their eloquent gestures. Through this exploration we see a wide range of emotions that are familiar to us through rich facial and bodily expressions. The show highlights several larger sized portraits, bringing the immediacy of the primates close to the viewer.
