Description

PHOTOGRAPHS BY STEVEN HIRSCH Stunning with toxic beauty, the abstract and psychedelic work on view was captured by Steven Hirsch’s lens at the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, one of America’s most polluted waterways. Revealing otherworldly waterscapes in the slime and detritus atop the tainted water, Hirsch’s painterly images swirl in a frenzy of elusive shapes and bright and explosive colors. The artist, known for his many projects depicting the fringe, states, “I would sit there on the side of the canal, and what looked like a giant painting by Monet would be there in front of me hovering on the surface of the water.” - Lilac Gallery - www.lilacgallerynyc.com info@lilacgallerynyc.com 144 5th Avenue New York, NY 10011
