NEW YORK, NY.- Klemens Gasser and Tanja Grunert open Tiffany Pollack: Room, the next exhibition at their gallery on 524 West 19th Street. This is the artist’s second one-person exhibition with Gasser Grunert and will comprise over a dozen silk paintings shown alongside Pollack’s first large-scale dyed silk installation.

Executed over the last two years, these new works introduce the artist’s recently developed interest in silk as support. Pollack paints directly onto the fabric with highly saturated colored inks. The silk quickly absorbs the pigment, and each form that develops stretches and unfurls into the neighboring marks, revealing the artist’s chosen subjects: autobiographical moments, color-coordinated daily schedules, and floral motifs.

In the Sleep Chart paintings, Pollack, a new mother, re-creates the journal-like schedule she and her husband keep of their baby’s routine, which in turn disclose the artist’s transformed life as a parent. In the multi-panel installation entitled Room, Pollack has sewn together six dyed silk panels, which surround a powder-coated steel skeleton, producing a tent-like space where the viewer is invited to sit in a rocking chair. Room, a variation on her daughter Easter Lily’s bedroom, is a detailed description and meditation on the private space where the artist spent so many evening hours with her baby girl. Here Pollack shifts her focus from figural portraiture seen in earlier works on canvas and in ceramic to incorporate more abstract representations that continue to document personal moments of the artist’s life.

Tiffany Pollack graduated with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2003 and in 2006 was awarded an Artist Residency at the Hungarian Multicultural Center in Budapest. Pollack’s work has been exhibited domestically and abroad in Miami, New York, San Francisco, and Tokyo, among other cities. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
