Do not adjust your eyes! The Stephan Stoyanov Gallery in New York has not one but two really cool exhibits that are currently showing. The first called “Depth Perception,” showcases the works of Nicole Cohen, Claire Ellen Corey, Thomas Eller, Cliff Evans, Roland Flexner, Jeff Gibson, Geoff Kleem, Susanna Starr and Fred Tomaselli. The artists toy with perceptions in these really amazing works of art and the results are a feast for the eyes. You’ll see manipulated photos, collages, videos, paintings in this exhibit and it’s really worth checking out.
The basement of the Stephan Stoyanov Gallery continues the brilliance with an exhibit called “Sites of Memory.” This installation features the work of artists Bernd and Hila Becher, Nayland Blake, Amelie Chabannes, Rebecca Chamberlain, Eva Davidova, Liven de Boeck, Terence Gower, Candida Hofer, Dimitri Kozyrev, Rita McBride, Caoimhghin O’Fraithile, Thomas Ruff, Samuil Stoyanov, Darren Wardle, Jill Weber and Rachel Whiteread. “Sites of Memory” is also a visual treat that explores the themes of reimagined buildings and monuments in relation to our memories of these spaces. I’d like to thank April Cuneo of the Stephan Stoyanov Gallery for being very accommodating to me as I toured these fantastic exhibits. “Sites of Memory” runs through July 25, 2010.
