NEW YORK, NY.- Kasher|Potamkin
launches into a new year with Everything Is All White, an exhibition of over thirty multi-generational artists tied together by the crisp and pure color of fresh snow.
The anthropologist Franz Boas in the late 1800s first brought attention to the fact that Eskimos have over 50 words for snow. They differentiate between wet snow and powdery snow, softly falling snow and snow that is good for driving a sled. Should the color itself not be afforded the same reverence?
Everything Is All White invites visitors into a room filled with cleansing white light. The photographs and paintings, the furniture, ceramics, sculptures, and objects for the home, have an air of honest innocence and offer a fresh bright start to the New Year.
Adrienne Landaus plush fur blankets, draped over the smooth surface of Stefan Ruraks white oak-beam bench create a rich, tactile juxtaposition. From Costanza Theodoli-Braschis delicate micro-poems to Wendy Givens monochrome To A Mouse, the artists in this show have embraced a minimal palette in dynamic ways proving that even the most basic of colors need not be simple. Without the distraction of bright neons and pastels, the viewer is invited to get lost in the fundamentals of the work and the endless possibilities lying in the void.
