Opens Tomorrow, May 10, 6-9pm:
(Opening coincides with Greenpoint Gallery Night)
Nancy Baker, Janice Caswell, & Debra Hampton
Calico, 67 West St., Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NY (#206)
Debra Hampton, Janice Caswell and Nancy Baker are three artists whose practice methods are informed by creating a greater whole than the sum of its humbled and disordered parts. They cut, paste, enumerate, and file; and from these disparate and solitary objects, assemble a cohesive narrative that attempts to satisfy and solidify a disordered beginning. Passion, obsession and minutiae are the slightly offbeat driving forces that characterize their work methodology, especially in these times of the re-entrenchment of the minimal and the deadpan.

Jack Dawson… Penniless artist who wins a ticket onto Titanic in 1912, attends a first class dinner, develops a taste for the finer things in life, pockets the Heart of the Ocean, survives the sinking, pawns the diamond, spends the following ten years building his wealth and in 1922 moves to West Egg as Jay Gatsby… Millionaire with a shady past and fear of swimming pools.

Wild Flower under the Milky Way
“This flower is called Primula Denticulata and is located at 1500-3000m above sea lelvel in northern part of Yunnan, China. I had strong desire to take a macro image of these flowers and it took me an hour hour to find them. Putting the camera on the slope, focusing, composition and lightning were all very difficult but the worst thing is shortness of time to moonrise. I had to leave soon.” — Jeff Dai
