This event has ended.

At Salon 94 Bessone will exhibit three paintings of semi-clad women who mimic the poses of classical sculpture. At Salon 94 Freemans, each painting depicts a character from her own theatrical troupe, including Faust, a white-faced Josephine Baker stylized dancer, a dandy, a raccoon, and a eunuch.

Bessone’s paintings depict small porcelain figurines blown up to monumental size against monochromatic backgrounds resembling photographic and theatrical backdrops. The figures are assigned a new layer of meaning by Bessone.
