Artist's Reception: Jitka Hanzlová at Yancey Richardson Gallery

There is something I don't know

Exhibition Dates: October 25 - November 24, 2012

Opening with the Artist:
Thursday, October 25
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Jitka Hanzlová new series is an hommage to the Quattrocentro portraits and is a continuation of her timeless style. There is a definite quality that bridges the model and the referent- the lighting, the rich shadow, the honorable gaze or dignified pose, and something always too that remains undefined. Sometimes we begin identify connections between past and present by a hairstyle, a necklace, a collar-line or just the shape of the face itself. Though factors shift and change from one print to the next, Hanzlová is onto something. The works catch us with immediacy and hold us as we take a sumptuous second look. We see a parallel in time- a something that we can only define in words as an overlap. With this work as with others Hanzlová causes time to stop and even fall away.

There is something I don't know is Hanzlová's first solo show at the gallery. A major retrospective of Hanzlova's photography from the last two decades was organized by Fundación MAPFRE in Madrid this spring and has travelled to the National Galleries of Scotland, where it will be on display through February 3, 2013.
