Utilizing materials such as clay, caulk, oil, and ash on canvas—as well as bronze in her sculpting practice—Gianna Dispenza presents several series of new work at Charles Moffett in lower Manhattan.
Inspired by the Hampstead Heath Ladies Pond in London, works such as Summer, The Bathers, and Swimmer “examine the role of narrative framework through the interpretation of emotion.”
See link below for details.
Through June 5.
511 Canal Street, New York City.
