"Jungle" : May 7 - May 30
An exhibition of new lights and mirrors Opening May 7th (6:00 - 8:00) at Heller Gallery 303 10th Avenue New York, NY 10001
The show features three new mirror projects and a special installation of Fiddlehead. Here is what Jason writes about the show. "Three thousand feet above sea level, the Central American jungle is a series of frighteningly steep mountains covered by mist and seemingly held together by a tangled mass of vegetation. The density and sameness render it almost monochromatic until one stumbles on to an impossibly hued flower hanging from nowhere as if floating."
The nineteenth century painter, Martin Johnson Heade, captured this beautifully in his paintings from Brazil and Nicaragua. “Jungle” is an attempt to do the same in mirror and light.
