In the big gallery we will feature veteran photographer Gail Thacker in a show called “The Last Polaroids. ” The show highlights work she has done with the final carton of film she received from the Polaroid Company – one of the last batches made. You may have seen work of Gail’s recently at Elizabeth Dee Gallery (Material for the Making) and at Participant, where she was in the Mark Morrisroe tribute show. Or perhaps you remember her show at Safe-T-Gallery of a few years back when we were still in Williamsburg.
Then in the smaller gallery we are happy to introduce a very interesting young Japanese painter, Saki Kishimoto, in a show of her multi-layered, somewhat conceptual but strongly visceral paintings. Many of her paintings start as images from YouTube or Facebook and are then “infused with desire.”
