CULTUREfix New York is pleased to present “It’s Everything”, an exhibition of new works challenging the status quo by newcomer Dana Louise Kirkpatrick. This marks Kirkpatrick’s first solo show in New York. In recent years, she has developed a familiar and immediately identifiable iconography—the street fighter, black angels clad in red dresses and the rat king based on German folklore— to explore fundamental ideas about survival, humanity and our connectedness. Her work highlights the duality that defines existence, including our cruelty and arrogance, saints and sinners, hope and enslavement, oppression and liberation, hunger and opulence, color and form. Her work repeatedly asks the audience ‘why don’t you get this?’.

The exhibition will run from September 27th until October 30th with an opening reception from 7:00pm – 9:00pm on October 7th. It will be dynamic, large scale works on paper and canvas and will include a series of house paint on paper created as powerhouse illustrations for author and musician (Thelonias Monster), Peter Weiss’s third collection of short stories Master Butterfly Eating Yesterday. A limited number of signed copies of will be given away during the opening reception October 7, 2011. The exhibition will also be accompanied by select prints, stickers, and limited edition tee shirts designed by the artist available for sale.
