Gonzalo Puch's large scale color prints pull on traditional academic subjects. With allusions to math, science, music, biology, and environmental studies the artist tries to pull order from chaos. At first glance, the viewer may feel chaos has taken over, but as you spend more time with the works you begin to see a strange logic under the surface. Still not always holding evident meaning we attempt to decode the visual structure because there is indeed something very believable about them. The works are curious, colorful, engaging, and humerus. We are left with a sense of new or at least an open perception as well as questions on the construction of or the rules for reality itself.

New Yorker Review: Max Penson at Nailya Alexander Gallery

Working predominantly in Russia the 20's, 30's, and 40's images of Max Pension are well constructed and transportative. The journalistic and propagandistic approach to the frames is clear and convincing- the workers are heroic. Faces beam with strength and pride, harvest celebrations are joyful, and industry is strong.

The rare vintage works on display elevate the lifestyle, the government and the image of Russia at the period they were taken. The effectiveness of the images resonates in their ability to charm and entice us even today.

New Wilderness features color prints by the thought provoking artist, Anthony Lepore. Taken at visitor center's at the edge of the wilderness the images examine nature as a human construct. How has the hand of man intervened and invented the concept of nature? We find ourselves contemplating how the image itself has become the vehicle for our most frequent engagement with nature and the natural world. Humor enters as Lopore undoes the underpinnings of this now typical human encounter with nature by photographing and revealing the diorama for what it is- a representation of nature as seen by man.

Night birds captures two small birds in flight against a sheer rockfase, but in the evening sky overhead we see a bare bulb and smoke detector. In Cooler we see a pristine expanse of mountain range and a pine tree lined mirrored lake, but the secret too is exposed by white wheels at the image base and an electrical outlet. Other works juxtapose the natural against the man-made; Mud Flat and Salt Carpet are so tactile that we feel they must be collage, but the artist works only within the parameters of the 4x5 camera, so again truth of the natural and the construct is muddled cleverly.
