Elizabeth Denny is pleased to announce that Denny Gallery will open on Friday, January 11, 2013 with the inaugural exhibition Amanda Valdez: Taste of Us.
Amanda Valdez makes colorful, multimedia works, populated by shapes that oscillate between representation and abstraction. The works have a very strong physicality, immediacy, and sense of embodiment. Various materials- embroidery, acrylic paint, fabric and canvas- are sewn together to become continuous, integral elements of the work. Sewn elements are not delicate, fabric and stitches do not cede to painted elements, and the overall effect is one of materials acting out and asserting themselves. Yet the final work gives a sense of holistic embodiment, wrangled from the potential anxiety of fragmentation.
The gallery is located at 261 Broome Street in New York City. The hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday by appointment. For further information, contact Elizabeth Denny.
