In this two-person show, Caroline Hwang will premiere a new series of paintings and drawings that incorporate the color blocking used in quilting and the theme of childhood summer camp flags and banners. She will also have a small installation.

Exploring the full spectrum of emotions in personal relationships (love, loss, betrayal, etc.), Hwang’s narrative paintings play with the idea of multiple identities and/or personalities, and create characters in disguise. Her new set of paintings feature a "gang" of girls exploring themes of camaraderie, as well as the idea that each girl is perhaps one of many personalities in a single person. Hwang uses quilting to evoke nostalgia of traditional American handicrafts, and she explores the theme of summer camp flags to show the different “camps” of emotions every person. She has previously shown her work at New Image Art and Clementine Gallery in New York.
Suzannah Sinclair’s simple portraits of women find inspiration in images from 1960s Playboys, as well as her friends and, at times, herself. Her post-feminist voyeurism is combined with suggestive poses and delicate renderings that gloss over their alienation, or is it anticipation? Besides returning to New Image Art, she has previously shown her paintings at Samson Projects in Boston and Space 1026 in Philadelphia.
