Gitler & _____ is pleased to announce the closing reception for ROOMS, which will take place on Thursday, March 14th, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, in its temporary TriBeCa location at 11 Beach Street. ROOMS features the art of Tirtzah Bassel, Kristian Glynn, Erin Hall, Boy Kong, Morgan Lappin, Tanmoy Majumder, Theresa Marchetta, Scott Williams and others.
Tirtzah Bassel’s recent Duct Tape installations deal with themes like the vulnerability of airport security and the transiency of The NYC Subway. The Israeli artist has an MFA from Boston University and is the recipient of a 2011-2012 LABA Artist Fellowship at the 14th Street Y in New York.
Kristian Glynn’s visceral paintings on paper are at once chaotic and also beautifully composed. The Australian’s recent Chelsea solo show - his first in the USA - displayed over 180 intricate dioramas he made while living in Japan for two years.
Erin Hall’s figurative works are based on the intricacies of past relationships. She holds a Masters Degree from Brooklyn College and is a 2012 Merit Scholarship Winner at The Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery in NYC.
Boy Kong’s vibrant works are the products of an active imagination and the legends he’s been raised on by his Vietnamese family. He has been making art for just one year, and is a recent high school graduate.
Morgan Lappin’s collages, made up of old encyclopedia pictures and kitsch, are both hilarious and provocative. He shows regularly in New York City.
Tanmoy Majumder’s monumental woodcuts portray famous scenes from the Hindu epic, the Ramayana. He holds an MFA from the prestigious Kala Bhavana at Visva-Bharati University in India.
Theresa Marchetta’s Roosevelt Skins Paintings deal with Teddy R.’s furnishings as a glimpse into his life as well as a comment on contemporary art. She holds an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, and recently completed an artist residency at the Chashama Visual Arts Program in Brooklyn.
Scott Williams’ plein air cityscapes are painted in and around Long Island City, Queens, near to his studio. He received a Masters from the University of California at Davis, where he studied with Wayne Thiebaud. Williams teaches at City University of New York and at the Pratt Institute.
