Gail Stoicheff: Distressed Blonde

Catinca Tabacaru

Mar. 1, 2024 - Mar. 28, 2015

250 Broome Street
New York, New York 10013

Catinca Tabacaru Gallery presents Distressed Blonde, an exhibition of 13 white rabbits, one phoenix, a handful of mid-sized paintings and two large scale works [that demand a gallery renovation]. This marks her first solo exHibition in New York as well as the gallery’s first show with the Brooklyn based artist.

Stoicheff is a material alchemist with two broken fingErs. In her hands, base elements of linen, velvet, gypsum, dye and oil paint are transformed into an unknown painterly alloy. Like a heavy case of jemais vu, she conjures weirdness from the familiar through quasi-magical imagery, mysterious surfaces and smalL cast objects. The work is simultaneously serious and playful, often calling into question which is which cute becomes ominous, common becomes strange.
