Traversing A Different World by Eileen Weitzman
Sept. 8 - Oct. 29, 2017
Artist reception: Friday, Sept. 8, 6-9PM
Anthony Philip Fine Art is proud to present "Traversing A Different World," a solo exhibit of recent work by Brooklyn artist Eileen Weitzman. The exhibit will be on display in our Bushwick gallery from Sept. 8 - Oct. 29, 2017.
With “Traversing A Different World” Eileen Weitzman uses bold color, a sophisticated palette of textures and found materials, and a wry sense of humor to address complex social issues. Light and colorful, they are immediately welcoming to viewers. But her work also contains enough subtext to hint at a deeper, more deliberate raison d’etre. And always imagining, in the artist’s own words, “...a new world where imagination and wit reign supreme...”
Weitzman has developed a unique artistic voice informed as much by the old masters and traditional Asian art, as it is by conceptual art and modernism. By deftly navigating such disparate influences, she has created a body of work as instantly familiar as it is unexpected.
This is Weitzman’s first solo exhibition in Bushwick, and features paintings, sculptures and works on paper completed this year. The exhibition opens with a public reception on Friday, Sept. 8, from 6-9pm and will continue during regular business hours through Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017.
