Artist Anner Cohen’s oil paintings are the result of a multi-stage process, which begins with staging and photographing scenes of food, rotten fruit or human figures. The photographs are then manipulated in a code-based image processing program. Metadata, scraped from social media and other corners of the internet are inserted into the program, altering their structure, saturation and texture of the original image.

FROSCH&CO is pleased to present Re-Master, featuring artists Dennis Dawson, Steve Greene, Eva Lake, Jeanne Verdoux, Becky Yazdan, and Robert Yoder. What does it mean to create new work in our contemporary environment? New things proliferate, yet so many are forgotten. The spine breaks on a library book and the cover falls off, never to be returned. We throw out the shower curtains we bought for our last apartment. We rinse and repeat. Unsent postcards collect dust under a stack of old photographs.

FLORA and FAWNA - Season of Growth and Beasts
Exhibition of work in various media from Abstraction to Representation, including a number of phantasmagorical works, and commenting on the wide range of plant and animal life that enchants us during the summer months. The exhibition alludes to all that stimulates our senses during the height of the summer — when the many scents become natural opiates, when animal life is in full swing and plant growth seems to overwhelm us. All what appeared fresh and light and new in the spring turns full and laden with the weight of blossoms, leaves and the intense cacophony of animal cries. Exhibition Walk Thru and RECEPTION: THURSDAY, AUGUST 18 | 6-8 PM.

“Wet Dream Tomato” is a commonly misheard lyric from the 2009 Alicia Keys and Jay-Z song, “Empire State of Mind.” Artists in the show examine cultural disconnects - public versus personal perceptions of self, the existence of multiple realities, and blurred lines between truth and myth. Exhibited works weave between pop-cultural puns and one-liners, using humor as an entry point into these collective conversations.

Torn Canvas Project
Characterized by curiosity, diversity, and inventiveness, William Pérez’s work embodies transformation. In a multimedia conceptual piece and red acrylic drawings on canvas, each a display of raw emotion, he explores restlessness with his creative process, rebelliousness against inertia, and a desire for radical change.
