Bowery presents an exhibition of Anne Delaney’s recent paintings and drawings, produced over the last two years against a backdrop of social upheaval. The artist describes the tenor of the time:

“The general mood here in NYC and beyond felt dark and uncertain, with a sense of isolation. Yet, there were also brighter moments of hope. During this time, I had the opportunity to be in upstate NY. With form and color, I attempted to reflect the mood of both quarantine and racial reckoning.”

The drawings produced upstate served as starting points for paintings. The artist recorded cragged but resilient apple trees, and tulips full of beauty and life before fading into symbols of mourning and transience. Inspired by colossal prehistoric Olmec sculptures, Delaney also depicted what she calls “powerful and feminine” heads; sometimes toppled, they recall Greek and Roman sculpture, as well as the overturning of so many of our own public statues.
