This isn't specifically Hey, Hot Shot! related, but it is fabulous gallery-related news! The excellent Vince Aletti writes about Holly Lynton's exhibition Solid Ground in this week's edition of The New Yorker.
Exploring the possibilities for fantasy in her own back yard, Lynton turns it into a wild kingdom for a series of color photographs that assume the point of view of a playful and inquisitive child. Lynton's nearly naked little girl and a bare-chested friend take on a fairy-tale presence in a landscape rendered mysterious by worm's-eye-view closeups. He's a giant seen through a scrim of leaves; she's a sprite, crouching to catch a sprinkler's spray in her mouth. But some of the most intriguing images are unpopulated: a tunnel in the snow; a bird caught behind the netting on a raspberry bush; leaves, petals, dead bees, and dry ice floating in a plastic pool. Through Oct. 28. (Bekman, 6 Spring St. 212-219-0166.)
We'll be hosting a Q+A between Holly and Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City on Thursday October 26 from 6pm - 8pm. (There will be wine + beer, the talk starts around 7ish.)
Space is very limited, so please RSVP: rsvp AT jenbekman DOT com. The show remains on view through Saturday October 28, and the gallery is open Wednesday - Sunday from noon - 6pm or by appointment.
