Leila Heller Gallery is currently hosting an exhibition of recent works by Persian artist Pouran Jinchi. Drawing on diverse cultural sources including literature, history, Folk art and religion, Jinchi has developed a visual vocabulary that inhabits the space between abstraction and calligraphy.
Geoffrey and I were in the thick of an exhausting Art Crawl last Saturday, trying to catch up on dozens of exhibits whose opening receptions we weren’t able to hit on September 12th — the official kick off to the NY Art Scene’s Fall/Winter Season — when we were drawn into the Leila Heller Gallery by the colorful graphic mural by Tunisian artist el Seed wrapping the gallery’s windows from 25th Street around the corner and down 11th Avenue.
I really enjoyed this exhibit, which has close to a hundred pieces by dozens of contributing artists. Read the press release for more information at This Link. I’m just going to post photos I took of a few of my favorite pieces without much further commentary, if any.
