Bernice Halpern Cutler – inappropriate appropriation / Thom O’Connor
August 1, 2014 - August 31, 2014FREE
Bernice Halpern Cutler fantasized about hanging her leftover pieces in the homes of celebrities. When none of her attempts to accomplish this worked out, she decided instead to place them in beautiful rooms from Interior Design magazines. And thus came the first series of appropriated art, “Borrowed Space.” As she continued working in that manner, her photographs developed into a something different than expected, and eventually it didn’t seem to matter if the images she used were even hers. By combining found images as well as originals into unlikely settings, so came the second series “inappropriate appropriation”.
During an eight-month period, Thom O’Connor roamed east and west on Manhattan’s 14th Street, photography from the East River to the Hudson River. Thom’s images capture the energy, color, texture and humanity of one of Manhattan’s most unique streets.
