Gallery Homeland presents AIR

Disjecta presents Henk Pander's Maryalice Paintings
. The paintings in the exhibition explore Pander's close relationship with his granddaughter, who lived with him and his wife until she was 12. Meagan Atiyeh organized the exhibition after visiting Pander in his studio and noting, "I immediately found these paintings so compelling. Henk's work is traditionally highly composed and refined. These paintings of Maryalice had a more immediately expressive, gestural quality, perhaps due in part to the difficulty of getting a young girl, then teenager, to sit for a portrait." The exhibition will run September 11 - October 16, 2010.
