“Does making abstract art seem intimidating or baffling to you?” asks award-winning artist Rachael Wren (). “Want to take your work beyond representation but not sure how to begin? Then this workshop is for you!”⁠

Wren is teaching “Moving Towards Abstraction” on March 23-24, a special workshop that promises to give you tools to discover and develop your personal artistic voice.⁠

“Participants will explore and experience the process of abstracting from the observed world, learning how to find and capture the inner spirit of what they are looking at. We will address the concept of scale and discuss strategies for developing an effective composition.”⁠

Yesterday we formally announced our representation of although it has been a de facto reality for a while. It is rare for me to be introduced to a body of work that I find as poignant, relevant and powerful. Exhibiting the work, following the growing appeal and public enthusiasm for it has been a lesson in humility and gratitude. Having worked with Torrance on the layout of her monograph was awesome. Many thanks to for the introduction and to for her powerful essay.
Torrance’s exhibition at is up@through the 28th but for those of you who can make it there is a talk tomorrow at 3 pm titled Sunday Spotlight: Creativity and the Brain, a conversation with developmental neuropsychologist David H. Rose, moderated by Learning & Engagement Coordinator, Katherine Tako-Girard. Register on the Danforth’s website. Seats are limited.
Didn’t get our announcement? Sign up on the gallery website or DM me and I’ll add you.

As photographers learn to grapple with the challenges of representing the self in an increasingly complex arena of identity politics we are honored to work with as brave and determined artist as Torrance York. Semaphore is an intensely personal essay that touches so many who share the infliction of Parkinson’s Disease. Bravo.





Repost from

My solo show of Semaphore runs through January 28th. Join us in 2 weeks for one last program on Sunday, 1/21 at 3pm. I am really looking forward to my conversation with developmental neuropsychologist David H Rose about creativity, Parkinson and the brain. Thank you Katherine Tako-Girard for planning this program and moderating our discussion.

Link in bio to register. Free with museum admission.

In Semaphore I examine the shift in my perspective after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 8 years ago. What I have found remarkable about making this project is the positive impact the creative process has had on my wellbeing and outlook.

PHOTOFAIRS NEW YORK RECOMMENDS: "A Room For The Night" by Alex Yudzon at Rick Wester Fine Art, on view until November 4, 2023.

From Alex Yudzon:

“A Room for the Night is an ongoing photographic series made entirely in hotel rooms. Beginning in 2014, I have travelled around the world secretly making and photographing temporary sculptural assemblages using only the furniture and objects found in the hotel rooms I stayed in.

I am inspired by the relationship between familiar and unfamiliar space and how the unconscious finds meaning within the objects that surround us. Because of their temporary nature, hotel rooms are perfect laboratories for exploiting these ideas.

Working alone, I stack, lean and balance furniture in configurations that range from the formal to the surreal. These sculptural installations transform the mundane familiarity of the room into a theater of beauty and absurdity."

I don’t know what to call it - visual kismet, picture pinball or maybe a silent angel’s touch but today during a presentation of and ‘s exquisite project to new clients, a parallel presented itself in ‘s exhibition . From their series, the work titled ‘I learned at least what home could be, 2023’ leapt forward and sang a chorus with Alex’s work. Love when that happens. Nothing is better than that. Is it?
