Opening Reception Friday, Nov. 21, 6-8pm
Jennifer Primosch is an artist and art educator born and raised in New York City, where she still resides and works. This show is a combination of two series based on New York City; one series takes place below ground, and the other is high above.
SUBWAY SELF PORTRAITS
This series ofwatercolor paintings, Subway Self-Portraits, depicts the reflection one sees in the windows and brushed metal doors of subway cars, making for an unexpected and surprising (and sometimes dismaying) confrontation with one’s own image.
These paintings, done in an array of media such as oil, watercolor, and pastel, pay homage to the iconic image of New York City: the water tower. They dot our landscape, sitting high above the city, often unnoticed by the people below. These paintings show two specific water towers that are visible from the artist's window.
