DESCRIPTION

 

"Kayosities" is a tribute show to Kay Thomas. This "cabinet of curiosities," will feature among other things; Thomas's collection of sumi-e brushes, photographs from her glory days in Greenwich Village, several years of journals, and her classical sumi-e paintings.

Pocket Utopia is pleased to present "Kayosities," featuring the work of Kay Thomas with Elissa Levy and Björn Meyer-Ebrecht in the project space and a new print edition by Deborah Brown. Proceeds from the sale of the print will be donated to Women in Need, providing housing, help, and hope to New York City's women.

Elissa Levy will present an assemblage of photographs, prints, drawings and sculpture. Using the newspaper as source material, Levy abstracts the human form, obscuring it, repeating and pairing its parts with colored tape, beads, and drawn blocks of color. Björn Meyer-Ebrecht approaches architecture, through drawing, sculpture and collage, constructing a complete composition by superimposing abstract forms and found images, in which the architecture is always reflected as both: a concrete site and ideal place.
