Since 2010, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty has been helping local art prosper in DC. Through hanging work on its office walls, TTR Sotheby’s helps artists gain exposure, and fans. This month and through August, the world-renowned realtors will be showcasing works by abstract, local artist Sally Kauffman.

The exhibit will include works from three of Kauffman’s main collections: “Fleshy Bits,” “Bathers” and “Intimate Feasts.” Each collection describes Kauffman’s interest in the human form, food, and her own body. Kauffman works like a true abstract artist: enveloping herself in the process of painting.

Kauffman is clearly not afraid to get messy in her works, and the splashes of color and layers she creates form the images in a beautiful, expressive way. Sally’s works depict familiar images in a very unfamiliar manner, as if you are trying to remember a dream but it is just barely out of reach.

Since we have been fans of Sally Kauffman’s for a while now, we decided to dedicate this week’s Borderstan article to her new show. Sally Kauffman’s show is at TTR Sotheby’s International Realty on 1506 14th Street NW­. Come out, support a local artist, and enjoy the complexities of abstract art.

Bringing the Art in DC to You, Aleksa.
