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.
Now that the holiday season is underway and the galleries of Borderstan are closing out the year with their December shows, we have one more to report on that should be on your 2013 calendar.
Although not a traditional gallery space, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty (1506 14th St NW) is now showing their latest artist in their emerging artist showcase series. Now through January, Mark Parascandola will show his powerful and mind opening photography.
The work in this show is a retrospective of Parascandola’s use of architecture as a focus for his explorations. Mark Parascandola, a PhD epidemiologist by training, uses photography to explore patterns of movement in human populations, focusing on architecture as evidence of often-invisible social, environmental, and economic processes.
Parascandola lives, works and is now showing within the borders of Borderstan. He was also recently selected as a finalist for the 2011 Sondheim Prize, and four of his images were chosen by Corcoran Gallery of Art curator Amanda Maddox for inclusion in her section of the FotoDC Flash exhibit. Mark creates his own limited-edition digital prints using pigment inks on watercolor paper.
TTR Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to showcase his work from Thursday, November 29th until January 11 at their office at 14th and P Street NW. The closing reception will be on January 10 from 6 to 8pm. For more info about Parascandola’s work, visit www.parascandola.com
