Wrong Side of the River, a new gallery space in Greenpoint, will open this week with, ‘Wonderland,’ a show featuring the work of painters Buket Savci and Jacob Hicks on Friday, April 12th, at 67 West St. Suite 312 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
In a statement the gallery describes the concept of their inaugural exhibition:
History’s requisite that the female image act as a container for a viewer’s desire or as a projection of male ownership excludes the most salient feature of a work of art, the transference of personhood. Jacob Hicks and Buket Savci utilize vivid color, ornamentation, narrative structure, and technical virtuosity to create veritable wonderlands within this transference.
The show runs through May 3rd, and the gallery is open Mon. – Fri. from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. by appointment.
