On-site installation: Brice Brown, Rosebud, 2013
A site-specifIc installation consisting of a three-sided mural of collaged and digitally manipulated images of roses with nods to both the grand narrative paintings of Nicolas Poussin and the Romantic still life tradition of Henri Fantin-Latour. Brown presents these flowers as displaced, over-sized, altered and radically removed from their original context, causing a sense of rediscovery of this very ubiquitous image. Nnt merely a straightforward representation of roses, the experience is alien yet satisfying as the viewer is ultimately faced with the idea of "rose-ness" and all its attendant metaphorical possibilities.
Margaret Thatcher Projects is located at 539 West 23rd Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm. For further information, contact the gallery at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or 212.675.0222 or visit www.thatcherprojects.com.
