3 Season-Opening Gallery Shows

"Ivy Bridge," Susan Derges, 60x37, 2013

Three top Chelsea galleries have debuted major exhibitions over the past week. Laumont is proud to be associated with these artists and their important season-opening shows.

New work by English artist Susan Derges will be on display through October 26th at the Danziger Gallery. According to the press release, Derges “melds internal experience with the external landscape, the viewer is faced with images of water, bridges, and gates that could be familiar everyday sights but are not quite what they seem.” The new work of Derges combines both digital and analog techniques to achieve a colorful, dream-like experience for the viewer.

Hasted Kraeutler is featuring the work of another English artist, Nick Brandt. In

"Ranger with Tusks of Killed Elephant, Amboseli", Nick Brandt, 56x70

Across the Ravaged Land, on display through October 19th, viewers are confronted with stark images of East Africa and the animals and people who call this rugged landscape home.

"Isabell at the Window", Angela Strassheim, 40x50

Story Telling, photographs by Angela Strassheim, will be at the Andrea Meislin Gallery through October 26th. From the press release, “Strassheim’s images describe stories within the stories that are their backdrop. War legends, battle tales and romantic sagas elapse within chronicles of static bachelordom, anxious childhood, provocative adolescence and irritable paternity.” Also a forensic photographer, Strassheim’s day job seems to inform her artistic eye, casting her new show in the light of a “Jungian dream- or nightmare- scape”.

Laumont provided framing for all three of these extraordinary exhibitions.
