Defiant Flowers at Adjacent To Life

Harshman_3.jpg

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Defiant Flowers: Paintings by Stacy Harshman.

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

Scallon_Diamond_Dogs.jpg

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Efflorescence: The Collages of Kennyray Scallon.

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).
