Agathe Snow: Tout Dit (2D)02/11/2012
I am talking of all things that make you halt, that take over your mind at the expense of all other thoughts. Any obsession, dependence, metaphor, and all generalizations that stop you in your course, leave you flat – an illusion. You only have a back and front, depending on who is looking. - Agathe Snow
Caris Reid Studio Visit
Working from her studio in Brooklyn, Caris Reid's paintings portray elegance and strength, but are also haunting, and at times, almost surreal. They are simultaneously invigorating and soothing and trap the viewer in a specific moment in time - although time does not necessarily exist in her brushstrokes. With attributes like these inherent in her work, it seems fitting that Caris' latest exhibition - a group show at Interstate Projects titled Black Lodge - is inspired by David Lynch's Twin Peaks.
