Facets of Queer at Størpunkt Gallery

I am honored to announce that I will be a part of FACETS OF QUEER, opening this week at Størpunkt Gallery in Munich Germany!

The term 'queer' is often associated with being gay, but its history is one of a more complex kind. Having passed through a sequence of semantic changes – from being used in the 19th century as a term of abuse for homosexuality to today's more usual usage of describing gender identities that deviate from heterosexual norms – in 2017 'queer' found its way into the Duden, the dictionary of the German language. Uniting contemporary positions from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, this cross-media exhibition aims to capture the term's multifaceted character and historically grounded complexity. 

Deeply personal and intimate works reveal a remarkable range of identities and stories, from the playful to the severe, from the religious to the political. Whether this means gaining unexpected insights into queer lives or exploring questions of personal identity – with paintings, drawings, photographs, film and sculpture from such wide-ranging artists as Benyamin Reich, Seungyea Park and Tonino Mattu – størpunkt wants to celebrate the diversity of queer art as never before in Munich. The exhibition has been organized in cooperation with the corporate diversity networks Glamazon (Amazon) and Arcus (Clifford Chance).

ALEAH CHAPIN, ALESSANDRO BOSTELMANN, BENYAMIN REICH, CIGDEM AKY, DAVID SCHERMANN, ERVIL JOVKOVIC, JANINA ROIDER, JULIA BELOVA, LENA KUNZ, NILS FRANKE, REUBEN NEGRON, SEUNGYEA PARK, STEFANIE ZIEGLER UND LISA WENK, TONINO MATTU, VALENTINA MURABITO

The exhibition FACETS OF QUEER will run from 10 November until 15 December 2018. The opening day will be on 9 November 2018.

Five and Under at Arcadia Contemporary

Persephone_1_web.jpg

I'm thrilled to announce that I currently have three new watercolors available through Arcadia Contemporary. Inspired, in part, by Louise Glück's poem, "A Myth of Devotion," these paintings touch on the ideas of love, lust and possession as explored in the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades.

Each watercolor is 12 x 16 inches (30.5 x 40.6 cm) and is painted on Arches Cold Press watercolor paper mounted on aluminum composite panel. 

For more information about the show or their availability, please email: info@arcadiacontemporary.com

Morganne de toi at H Gallery, Paris

I am thrilled to announce the opening of my solo show, Morganne (Morganne de toi), at H Gallery, this Thursday, February 22nd, in Paris, France.

Morganne (Morganne de toi) is a visual narrative told in 14 parts. A departure from my previous  work, Morganne (Morganne de toi) is a self contained storyline centered on themes of memory, desire, transformation and escape. The images in this series represent singular moments connected through common threads of setting, character and costume. The narrative, while tangibly present, is purposefully left up to the viewer to arrange and rearrange, adding their own perspective with each iteration. 

My website will be updated with images from the show after it's opening. In the mean time please contact H Gallery for more information or to receive a preview of the show. 

Morganne (Morganne de toi) is on view at H Gallery, Paris from 22nd February - 31 March, 2018.
The opening is 22 February, from 6pm to 9pm.
