New York New Work is the outcome of Marina Strocchi’s time in the United States and most notably an extended stay in Brooklyn where she undertook a studio practice for three months through the Arts NT Fellowship program.
Renowned for working from surrounding natural environments, her home and still life, in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Strocchi was faced with the built environment on an incredible scale. The sheer mass and density of life and hope, the walls of repetitive windows, which sometimes reflect and sometimes recede, towering over the humans who made them, is reflected in these new images, as is a joy in the intensity of New York and the positivity from the people that Strocchi found inspiring.
Exhibition dates: 21 November 2020 – 07 March 2021. Click here for more information.
