Press release

City Gallery is presenting Thinking Twice, photographs by Phyllis Crowley, from Sept. 30 through Oct. 24, 2010.

Crowley takes a close look at what we eat, transforming meat and fish bought at the daily market into abstract landscapes or visual fields. Crowley is interested in the aesthetic and painterly qualities of subjects that also have repugnant associations.

“The idea for this series originated with trips to markets in Mexico, where I saw meat cut and displayed in a manner which I had never seen before. Sheets of beef were hanging from wires above the vendor, lit from behind. They looked like paintings.”

The Opening Reception is Sun., Oct. 3, from 3—6 pm.
