This solo exhibition showcases recent work by New York-based artist Daniele Genadry. Working across painting and drawing, Genadry’s transformed landscapes play with ingrained ways of perceiving the world by exploring how memory, migration, and movement affect our relationship to images. Multiple viewpoints, decentralized images and shifting frames within the work relate to the distortion characteristic of the way we receive information.
Familiar landscapes from Lebanon are reworked, partitioned, and abstracted, playing with imagination and perception, calling up images, like cinematic frames, that have been fixed in our collective memories.
