“RACHEL DOMM’s . . ceramics are based on common ‘snack’ shapes (crackers, pretzels, chips). Through this tongue-in-cheek vernacular Domm finds forms that are immediately both abstract and literal” ~ ESSEX FLOWERS

“NANCY SMITH . . will exhibit 2 works, both of which employ contemporary painting practices of process and appropriation within the vocabulary of the more marginalized practice of quilt making.” ~ ESSEX FLOWERS

yeah, that’s me – with my ‘LIGHTING STRIKES’ vintage quilt repair project, in the Sidney Hillman Playground on the Lower East Side – back in the late 1990s !!
it’s hard to tell – but that’s a SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES t-shirt – I’m wearing !!
SIMON CERIGO took the photo.
