Allouche Gallery will open its doors to the new exhibit, Paul Insect: Reflective Minds.
September 7 to October 8, 2017
The new exhibit, Reflective Minds, examines transformation through self reflection. In Paul Insect’s latest work, we are reminded that through the reflective qualities of our minds, great visions can create personal growth. This body of work “questions genuineness and boldly reaches for his truest self.” And encourages the viewer to do the same.
Paul Insect is probably best known for his 2007 solo show, Bullion, at Lazarides Gallery in London, as well as his work alongside Banksy at the Cans Festival, the Santa’s Ghetto project in Bethlehem, and on the separation wall in Palestine. It is said that his “sharp-edged images combine all the absurdism of Dada with the sleekness of modernism.”
“We live in a world that rewards the stability of the uncreative, in turn creating a society of individuals who hide behind disingenuous expressions and insincerity. Those people portray themselves as something that they are not, only showing their social side, or the face that they wish to be. Similarly, some of Paul Insect’s new works have a hidden part to them, a reflective quality, which mirrors the secret side of us. Further, the artist’s new still life works are a view of the melting pot world that we live in.” Yes, indeed – and we quoted, so as not to miss a single word.
The exhibit, Paul Insect: Reflective Minds, will be on view at Allouche Gallery, 82 Gansevoort Street, just west of Washington Street, directly across from The Whitney Museum, from September 7 to October 8, 2017. Opening Reception, September 7th from 6:00-9:00pm. You can also follow Paul Insect on Instagram.
