Garis & Hahn is pleased to announce Borderline: Depictions of Skin, an exhibition of mixed media work by Gwen Hardie, Cynthia Lin, and Diana Schmertz. This will be the second exhibition for the recently opened gallery space on the Bowery.
Borderline focuses on three artists’ unique perspectives of skin, and the role it plays as a sometimes sensory, sometimes literal “border” between the inner and outer realms. The works on exhibit present a duality of beauty and unease through an intimate examination of skin in different manifestations--a resilient organ, a beautiful translucent membrane, or a means for physical and psychological connection. In these highly detailed images, focus is often obscured at first glance, allowing an initial veneration of pure aesthetics prior to the revelation of the subject and the viewer's uncomfortable proximity to it. Borderline aims to reveal varied perceptions of skin and question the relationship to the subject.

There will be an artist panel discussion on April 10, 2013 at 7PM.
