Sardine is pleased to present PITCHERS, a solo exhibition by Holly Coulis. The exhibition opens Saturday, February 1 from 6 to 9pm and will be up through March 2, 2014.
PITCHERS features Holly’s recent body of still life paintings. Having worked with portraiture and landscape in the past, she continues to subtly recontextualize these traditional genres. Here, the still life is an open platform to talk about painting and to display the nuances of everyday life. The pitchers, vases, fruits etc. are immediately familiar but with time, they bend away from the commonplace into floating shadows, bright lines, and dreamy color. Oftentimes, the perspective is slightly skewed, awkward shapes replace naturally occurring shadows, and minute details contrast with broad strokes. Instead of being dramatic or idealized, everything that happens is poetic, humorous and personal.
Holly Coulis was born in Toronto, Canada and has lived and worked in Brooklyn since 1999. Her work has been shown in Toronto, Zurich, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and New York. She is represented by Cherry and Martin Gallery in Los Angeles and LaMontagne Gallery in Boston. Her most recent show was at Susanne Hilberry Gallery in Detroit.

Please join us for 4 PUZZLES IN 1 BOX, an interactive performance by Desiree Leary to mark the closing of her solo show VISION TRAPS. The artist will be present at Sardine all weekend and she invites visitors to join her in assembling her work “4 Puzzles in 1 Box”, four separate puzzles of four of her photographs each containing common elements such as grass, cement, wood, cross, and square. Each puzzle is cut exactly the same giving the opportunity for the images to be remixed.
Desiree will also doing a drawing every hour to give away one of her posters from the show. The gallery will be open regular weekend hours: Sat. and Sun. from 1-6. You must be present to win!
The press release from VISION TRAPS:
Desiree photographs with only her phone and a point-and-shoot camera. With minimal techniques and a distinctive eye, she stretches the possibilities of the medium by using various low-tech, consumer-friendly platforms and hands-on presentations. While the images themselves are grounded in the tradition of snapshot photography, no image is too precious to be transformed into a dinner plate, printed onto canvas or turned into a paperweight.
Desiree Leary was born in Taiwan, raised in Pennsylvania now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received a BFA from Alfred University, an MLIS from Rutgers University and will begin MFA studies at Hunter College in January. In 2012, she was awarded the Print Media Residency at the Institute for Electronic Arts in Alfred, NY. Her work has most recently been seen at TEMP, NY and Bushwick Open Studios.
