This event has ended.

Rachel Uffner Gallery presents Roger White’s third solo exhibition with the gallery. White’s first show, in 2008, inaugurated the gallery’s original space on Orchard Street; this show will span both floors of the gallery’s exhibition space, with paintings in the downstairs gallery and watercolors upstairs.

The show is untitled. I might have gone with Drommet Red, after an imaginary color in a suspense novel that Adorno mentions in Aesthetic Theory. Then I thought of calling the show Return to the Return to Order, a little art-historical joke about the state of painting in our current, vaguely Weimaresque moment (too grim). I also briefly considered Bleak Peak in honor of my studio, an apartment above a garage in a farmhouse in Vermont. Mountain views, and the smell of cows. My landlord’s incessantly barking dogs roaming across an ice-covered field in search of the perfect spot to defecate.
