Beginning January 9, Chungking Studio hosts a new exhibition featuring paintings by guest artist Scott A Trimble and photography by Osceola Refetoff, co-curated by Refetoff with Shana Nys Dambrot.
After exchanging studio visits and developing an affinity for each other’s work, these two artists were inspired to have a show together that reflected both their mutual admiration and the apparent stylistic unlikeliness of their pairing. Refetoff and Dambrot chose work by each artist that best explores the territories their work does share – haunting and richly textured landscapes; striking palettes and graphic lines; and a feel for the awkward contours of the relationship between humanity and nature – constructing an intuitive and eccentric visual diary of these artists’ casually profound, and very much ongoing, inter-studio conversation.
The exhibition runs thru January 29th.
