  6. Holly Coulis - PITCHERS

    Sardine is pleased to present PITCHERS, a solo exhibition by Holly Coulis. The exhibition opens Saturday, February 1 from 6 to 9pm and will be up through March 2, 2014.


    PITCHERS features Holly’s recent body of still life paintings. Having worked with portraiture and landscape in the past, she continues to subtly recontextualize these traditional genres. Here, the still life is an open platform to talk about painting and to display the nuances of everyday life. The pitchers, vases, fruits etc. are immediately familiar but with time, they bend away from the commonplace into floating shadows, bright lines, and dreamy color. Oftentimes, the perspective is slightly skewed, awkward shapes replace naturally occurring shadows, and minute details contrast with broad strokes. Instead of being dramatic or idealized, everything that happens is poetic, humorous and personal.

    Holly Coulis was born in Toronto, Canada and has lived and worked in Brooklyn since 1999. Her work has been shown in Toronto, Zurich, Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, and New York. She is represented by Cherry and Martin Gallery in Los Angeles and LaMontagne Gallery in Boston. Her most recent show was at Susanne Hilberry Gallery in Detroit.

    Sardine is located on the ground floor of 286 Stanhope Street between Wyckoff and Irving Avenues in Bushwick, Brooklyn, one block from the Dekalb L train and near the Knickerbocker M.

  8. Sardine is pleased to present VISION TRAPS, a solo exhibition by Desiree Leary. The show opens Saturday, November 23 from 6 to 9pm and will be up through January 5, 2014.

    Desiree photographs with only her phone and a point-and-shoot camera. With minimal techniques and a distinctive eye, she stretches the possibilities of the medium by using various low-tech, consumer-friendly platforms and hands-on presentations. While the images themselves are grounded in the tradition of snapshot photography, no image is too precious to be transformed into a dinner plate, printed onto canvas or turned into a paperweight.

    Desiree Leary was born in Taiwan, raised in Pennsylvania now lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received a BFA from Alfred University, an MLIS from Rutgers University and will begin MFA studies at Hunter College in January. In 2012, she was awarded the Print Media Residency at the Institute for Electronic Arts in Alfred, NY. Her work has most recently been seen at TEMP, NY and Bushwick Open Studios.
