Traces at Adjacent to Life
Absence fills Kaitlin Pomerantz's paintings, implying tales, lives and loves removed, relocated or forgotten. What remains is an arena of opaque nostalgia that also reveals a witty parallel narrative of Painting's resilience. With earnest irony, Pomerantz's act of painting a vacated picture asserts Painting's continued, albeit problematized, mysterious power: absence becomes a presence.
Traces runs through October 10 at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, NYC).

Defiant Flowers at Adjacent To Life
East Village artist Stacy Harshman paints ecstatic emanations that mirror the generative processes of nature.
While her method of gestural improvisation parallels that of the New York School Abstract-Expressionists, she complements the ponderous swagger of those earlier painters by embracing delicacy and the unapologetic pursuit of beauty as a value unto itself.
The incorporation of literal blossoms acknowledges that it takes a lot of guts to be a flower. To stand on display, freely offering beauty to all is a defiant show of confidence and strength, and an advocacy for the greater good.
Defiant Flowers runs through August 29 at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, NYC).
