Seagull VIP client and curator extraordinaire (and possibly the only man ever to have had his hair set in a fingerwave at Seagull) Dean Daderko put together Reflecting Abstraction, a sure-to-be-amaze photography and painting exhibition opening tonight at Vogt Gallery in Chelsea. Sadie Benning, Abigail Deville, Nina Hoffmann, and Ulrike Müller comprise the piquant lineup. I love this moody poster for the show. The grand opening is tonight from 6-8 at 508 - 526 W. 26th St., #911.
From the curator's statement:
"Abstraction functions in an active space somewhere between object and mirror. It allows viewers a chance to see themselves, or a portion or aspect of themselves, as part of a bigger picture. Reflecting Abstraction investigates painting and photography’s abstract engagements with the figure and the shifting subjective positions that these relationships outline."
