O joy!

19 Jan

One of the most interesting and original painters I’ve seen in New York recently, is the French-born, NYC-based Sydney Albertini. I discovered her accidentally, as I was walking up the Bowery one afternoon, her works exhibited on the walls of an empty loft facing the street. From what she told me, she discovered that space randomly, saw it empty, called the owner and rent it to exhibit her works there. Her paintings are a combination of drawings and colour, and the collection O Joy! that I had the chance to see consisted of self-portraits, female dancing figures or more abstract designs, drawn on brown paper simply pinned on the walls. Next Albertini will be showing her work at FIAF. The Institute is hosting her collection ephemere from February 10th to March 12th 2011.
