JESSE MOCKRIN
Pleasures of the Dance

November 2 - December 18, 2016


Dear Reader, Lest you be confused by the distance between us, what follows is an interview with Jesse Mockrin’s recent body of work: No one has asked with such insistent perspicacity why it is that in the painting of the high rococo, such a convoluted profusion of voluminous taffeta, of patterned damask, of coy, porcelanite thighs, is punctuated with a…

Nathalie Karg Gallery is pleased to present Nathlie Provosty’s first exhibition in a commercial gallery in New York.
