New Paintings: Ellen Berkenblit

May 28 - July 2, 2015

Berkenblit's practice hovers between representation and abstraction, often presenting the female figure experiencing a realm of imaginative explosion and escape. Through her unpredictable application of paint, she presents private and flirtatious worlds, where girls can be ladies and ladies can be women—or somewhere in between. Her subjects capture a playful and sinister balance of eroticism and comedy—and as Carroll Dunham puts it, "now seem dangerous and slightly unhinged, hell-bent on finding action, or generating it."
