NEW YORK—Last Tuesday, Zieher Smith opened for the first time since suffering serious water damage from Hurricane Sandy. As recovery efforts carried on behind-the-scenes, the gallery space looked pristine, continuing a show of works by Jason Brinkerhoff.
The exhibit, “Some Women” explores the female body in a series of more than 70 works. In each, Brinkerhoff depicts the single subject in a manner that is at once similar and in stark contrast to the others. His bodies are rounded, geometric forms sometimes created with fine lines like sketches, otherwise with more confident strokes. The approach usually depends on the medium he has chosen to incorporate color into the work. His color palette—both bright and muted—is drawn from a wide range of pencils, inks and pastels, as well as collage techniques. A series of paintings are also on exhibit for the first time.
“Some Women” opened on Oct. 11 and, originally slated to conclude on Nov. 10, has been extended to Dec. 8, 2012.
