• The Copenhagen Interpretation

    In the vibrant, emergent neighborhood of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, some of the most exciting contemporary art is evolving and being seen.  It’s no surprise, then, that a new kind of gallery would spring up, playing to more alternative and intimate tastes than those of the “white cube” variety housed in Chelsea or the Upper […]

  • Behind the Veil with Tim Hailand

    “I suppose that my subjects are, for me, idealized versions of themselves, just as toile de Jouy fabric represented a romanticized interpretation of pastoral ‘reality’ in late-18th century France.” – Tim Hailand   In my work, I allow the material to lead me — it lets me know what it wants (or does not want) […]
