With this exhibit, Agostini reflects on the human psyche through observation of the world around her. Her drawings tell the story of the protagonists through vigorous studies of their body language she is able to expose their hidden fears, frailty and their strength, without language or dialogue. Though some may see these emotions as a weakness, for Agostini they are strengths. Her portraits are intimate views of people’s movements, and as she gains their confidence the subject subconsciously reveal their true self. As a result, she brings us people’s perspectives of the world in a poetic manner, while highlighting the complexities of their feelings.
Two weeks later, on Friday, September 19 we inaugurate at our Williamsburg space our new program : Coloring Book, an exhibition for kids (and the kid in you.)
Ten artists selected one of their favorite drawings of which they made a coloring page. Children can color these pages. These and the originals artworks are on view till October 5.
