New York-based artist R.H. Quaytman considers her painting practice like a book, where paintings develop as chapters while retaining their autonomy as individual objects. In The Front Room Quaytman, presents a selection of the smallest versions of these paintings which she calls Captions. Operating somewhere between photographic record and painterly surface, her ambiguous images merge abstraction, history, and perception into a network of visual ciphers.
London and Berlin-based artist Josephine Pryde makes photographs and sculptures using techniques she invents, using a variety of sources. In The Front Room, Pryde presents new work created for a photography exhibition in New York earlier this year made of photographs wrapped around aluminum tubes.
In her series of black and white transparencies, From the Deputy, Moscow-based artist Olga Chernysheva captured a municipal public art project in Russia in various stages of decay, vandalism, and erasure—presenting tensions between social policy and artistic practice.
