This event has ended.

The space opens on June 30th with a solo show of 37 self-portraits by Michael Iskowitz, whose “A Doll House Society” project appeared in Esopus 12. Executed over the past two decades, the paintings range in size from 8"x10" to 30"x40" and have never before been exhibited publicly. With their psychological intensity and expressive, assured use of color and form, they bear comparisons to the self-portraits of Van Gogh or Egon Schiele. But Iskowitz’s ability to probe his unconscious via different identities (or “masks,” as he calls them) also invokes the practice of artists such as Frida Kahlo or Cindy Sherman. The show, which will run through August 15th, represents Iskowitz’s New York City debut.
