May 12-June 10
104 Green Street, Brooklyn,
106 Green is pleased to present “Resting Position,” a solo exhibition of new works by Angela Heisch. The exhibition will be open from May 12 - June 10. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, May 12, from 6-8pm. Gallery hours are Saturday and Sunday from 12-5.
The works in Resting Position are meditations on the performative imperfections, measured accidents and tonal engagements that happen within what at first appear to be balanced, orderly worlds. With sleight of hand ease, they can be visually deceptive, but they don’t aspire to all out trickery. Angela states, “I’m interested in making work that is confrontational, intentionally ordered and uncooperative, as well as inviting, visually sound, and thin-skinned.” If these spaces are stages, they yearn for actors. If they are windows, the landscape outside resist logical perspective. If a game is being played, the rules are unclear.
Angela Heisch is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She received her MFA from SUNY Albany in 2014. She was awarded the Dedalus Foundation Fellowship in 2014, and has been a resident at Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Guttenberg Arts. Angela has shown recently at Mother Gallery, George Gallery, Ortega y Gasset, Park Place Gallery, One River School, Geoffrey Young Gallery, Harpy Gallery, Taymour Grahne, No Place Gallery, and ESEFFEF. Her work has been featured in AEQAI, ArtSFBlog, Maake Magazine: Issue 02, Young Space, Open House Blog, and Pleat Gallery.
