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).

Efflorescence at Adjacent To Life
East Village collage artist and graphic designer Kennyray Scallon redeploys the familiar imagery of our mediated environment to create a personal vision of a teeming world of ever-transmuting possibility. The environment depicted might be regarded as a synaptic landscape, a neural net that reveals a thought in the process of becoming.
Scallon works in an organic, intuitive manner. Images emerge like a flower unfolding. As in nature, the process is fractal, generating worlds within worlds, thoughts within thoughts until they attain the fullness of manifestation.
Efflorescence runs through July 18 at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, NYC).

Scenes From The Forest at Adjacent To Life
Building upon his work as an art director for film and television, Charlie Kulsziski's exhibit, Scenes From The Forest, presents montaged cut and pasted paper 3D constructions that are "like sets from a scary puppet show or story book."
Scenes From The Forest runs through June 13 at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, NYC).
