We’ve always been convinced that Kew tenants working together can make sparks fly. Tomorrow evening from 6 to 8 p.m., we’ll see proof of that when Rizzoli hosts a book signing for Heavenly Creatures, a new photographic monograph. The unusual work in the book is by Sally Gall, who is represented by another Kew tenant, Julie Saul Projects. Why not drop by tomorrow night and meet this exciting artist and your fellow tenants?
Sally Gall’s series Heavenly Creatures continues her lifetime investigation of the sensual properties of the natural world: light, air, wind, and sky and our interactions with it. Perhaps Gall’s own words sum up her vision best: “Ordinary textiles such as bedding, towels and clothing filled the canvas of the sky with metaphoric amoebas, sea creatures, swarming birds, blooming flowers. They were like variants of Miro or Klee paintings… I am searching for poetry in the everyday, and the miraculous in the ordinary.”
Gall’s work has appeared in over 70 exhibitions, she has been covered in numerous publications, and she has work in numerous permanent corporate and museum collections, including the Whitney, Bibliotheque Nationale, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim, to name only a few.
We’d also like to take the opportunity of this event to introduce our tenants to Julie Saul. Active in the New York art world for over 30 years, she has mounted hundreds of exhibitions ranging from contemporary work to historical thematic and solo shows with themes ranging from love and intimacy, the moon, X Ray, and botanical images to Morton Bartlett, Luigi Ghirri, and Eugene Bellocq. Thirteen of these have been solo exhibitions of Sally Gall’s work. Today, Julie represents over 20 photographic artists and is focused on organizing and curating shows as pop-ups and at institutions. In addition, she provides consultation on any photographic matter from building to dismantling private and corporate collections.
