Laurie Simmons: Color Pictures/Deep Photos 2007–2022
In “Color Pictures / Deep Photos 2007-2009,” Simmons reconfigures a photographic series she made a decade and a half ago. At the time, she downloaded and cut out images of women from amateur-porn websites, posed them in eerily lit sets alongside dollhouse furniture—tiny sinks, a toy lamp, a miniature piano—occasionally doodled or built-out decorations on their naked forms (painted polka-dot underwear, clay bras), and photographed the resulting tableaus. Meant to be printed out in a large-scale format, the series was, in the end, never officially shown, its source material perhaps considered out of step with Simmons’s more familiar midcentury imagery. Fifteen years later, the artist has returned to reconsider and play with these images once again, and we are now more than ready.

Poyen Wang: Endearing Insanity (front gallery)
In the front gallery, Essex Flowers presents Poyen Wang: Endearing Insanity. The exhibition, titled for Wang’s 9-minute CGI film and related still images, employs the genres of horror and erotica to navigate boundaries between the seductive and the repellent, the private and the public, the sincere and the absurd.
Liliana Farber, Jacq Grove & Alison Reimus (rear gallery)
In the rear gallery, Liliana Farber’s digital print is a poetic recreation of an antique world, data collages made with Google Earth satellite imagery; Jacq Groves’ sculpture and cyanotypes reference failures of the body, healing, and transformation; and Alison Reimus’ sewn fabric constructions are tender and humorous considerations of the domestic, as personal and shared history through women’s labor and craft.

For many centuries, portraiture has been simultaneously perceived as both an act of vanity and a cherished means of legacy preservation––whether it be that of an individual or family. Nevertheless, portraiture serves as an archive chronicling our social history. However, especially in relation to colonial history and its repercussions, rooms of museums and private mansions filled with portraits hanging from ceiling to floor often odiously linger as mausoleums to oppression and patriarchal dominance. The exhibition “A room full of mirrors” rethinks these above-mentioned dusty spaces full of silent witnesses of bygone eras in post-colonial optics, and suggests alternative versions of them, showing a diversity of artistic voices, practices, and visions.

Jerry Kearns: HEARSAY
Please join us for a pre-closing reception to celebrate the last week of Jerry Kearns solo exhibition HEARSAY, where the artist navigates human connection in the hyperreal landscape of the present day. The ecstatic consumption of informational and sensorial stimuli sublimates our real desires. Time and space are compressed, everything is at our fingertips, so why do those close to us feel so distant?

Rob de Oude: Unison
Rob de Oude creates his patterned geometric oil paintings entirely by hand, through a process of repeating and overlapping bands of color in a grid formation. Working in square formats of varying sizes, ranging from 12 to 72 inches, de Oude uses a specially designed rig that allows him to keep his color lines straight and evenly spaced, their width determined by his choice of brushes. His colors, as well as their translucency and opacity, are modulated through careful mixtures and varying densities of application. The resultant luminous and optically charged paintings possess subtle shifting color, changing depth and volume, and most remarkably, a mysterious and atmospheric glowing inner light.

Fern O' Carolan: You'll Never Get To Heaven
You'll Never Get To Heaven combines pious innocence with hedonistic chaos, doing so without ever forgoing the importance of cute. The imagery explores the classic female dichotomy of the religious right, mining the Madonna-Whore Complex and positioning the viewer between the two as they attempt to navigate the dissonant aesthetic signals. The work on show is a rejection of this spectrum, a rejection of the notion that a woman must either be positioned in defense of or in action against either side and thus never really free from them.

Herald Nix & Roger Brouard: Gilded Splinters
Nix’s paintings and Brouard’s sculpture embrace the process—the journey as much as the destination. Finding and creating routes, acknowledging missteps along the way, and evidencing them as part of the finished work. They are interested in finding something new within something familiar, as we can often find more within boundaries than without.

Adrián Fernández: Sketch for a Monument
Two distinct bodies of work—mysterious virtually rendered photographic landscapes featuring elaborate decaying skeletal structures and rusted abstract sculptural volumes of welded corten steel—unite in Cuban-born artist Adrián Fernández’s architectural fictionalization of the ways in which ideology is perpetuated.
