Coming to Agora Gallery this April is the exhibition Persistence of Form, featuring the artist Marina Sutter. The exhibition opens April 25, 2017 and runs through May 16, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 27 from 6-8 pm. Entrance is free.
The subjects of Marina Sutter’s portraits seem to deliberately evade the viewer’s gaze. With their backs turned away from us, or with hair or clothing obscuring their faces, the people in her acrylic and oil on canvas paintings create an air of mystery, placing a distance between subject and viewer that only increases their interest. By not directly showing the faces of the people she depicts, Sutter strives to focus our attention on “the details in the human dialogue” rather than simply presenting an image of a person.
Location: 530 West 25th Street New York, NY 10001
