Yes Gallery Presents: Concrete Garden
Yes Gallery is proud to present “Concrete Garden” an exhibition featuring works by Nicole Handel curated by Lesley Doukhowetzky. Please join us for a reception on Friday October 14th 2011 from 7-10pm.
Nichole Handel’s work is concerned with the interface between childhood fantasy and everyday reality. Her understanding reflects a rapport that is animated by an approach to culture and urban settings that represent a technical sensibility rather than advancing particular ideology.
Raised in New England but now resides in Brooklyn for the past ten years, Nicole superimposes her inclination toward the pastoral over the spatial constraints of her current geography. She traces watercolor images in an asymmetrical, irregular fashion to signify her impetus to instill restraint over disorder as well as frame the artist’s struggle to embrace the organic while generating something novel. Nichole’s work depicts flowers and fish emerging through concrete architecture and every day city views creating a Concrete Garden.
