    Italicized Reality  

    SARDINE is pleased to present a group show titled Italicized Reality  featuring work by Liz Ainslie, Andy Cross, Christopher Dunlap, Robin Kang, Jennifer J Lee and Dana Powell. The exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, September 15, 2018 from 6 to 9 pm. It will run through Sunday, October 14, 2018. 

    “Access to an alternative reality, a “beyond” where the usual physical laws don’t apply and various manifestations of cosmic consciousness or divinity present themselves as unmistakably real” – Michael Pollan, How to Change your Mind

    Many parallels can be drawn between Michael Pollan’s new book regarding the science of psychedelics, and the artistic experience of creation.  In both, personal visions are explored. Space becomes defined, by modeling forms using value and color. Time is necessary for creation. The idea, the ephemera, becomes grounded in material richness. Through the hands of these artists the ineffability of a mystical experience is underscored, and reality is italicized. 

    SARDINE is located on the ground floor of 286 Stanhope Street between Wyckoff and Irving Avenues in Bushwick, Brooklyn, one block from the Dekalb L train and near the Knickerbocker M. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6 pm when a show is in progress or by appointment. For more information, please visit Contact: Lacey Fekishazy at 914.805.1974 or
