An Artwork Explained
Ben McLaughlin, Songbirds, 2020, oil on panel, 8 1/4 x 11 5/8 inches
Ben McLaughlin paints scenes from memory. They could be a remembered still from a film, or an image from a magazine, book or travel brochure he once saw. Maybe an event he witnessed or a place he actually visited. They’re records of strange, unexplained moments that are hauntingly evocative. So much so, in fact, they often feel as if they might be your own recollections. Memory is tricky business: at the same time persistent and unstable. What is remembered and what do we invent? McLaughlin’s prowess is his ability to depict images that conjure associations and transport us a place that feels true… whether it is real or imagined.

New to Inventory
Rina Banerjee, Holly men, "Stand by me when you arrive.", 2021, (detail), ink and acrylic on paper, 16 x 12 inches
In a post-colonial, global society, identity — racial, cultural or gender — is no longer easily defined, as people reject traditional delineations. Rina Banerjee offers up the optimistic possibility of a world freed from the constraints of conventional standards of beauty, worth, social pecking order and what is “proper.” We live in a moment of opportunity, Banerjee posits, when it's possible for individuals to define themselves in a way that is truly authentic.
Upcoming at the Gallery
1 May - 19 June
Isabella Kirkland, Phasmid Eggs, 2021, oil on polyester over panel, 48 x 60 inches
Self-taught in the meticulous and time-consuming techniques developed by 17th century Dutch painters, Kirkland directs her technical proficiency and rarefied access to biological specimen collections towards illuminating the ecological instability of the Anthropocene — and specifically, the acute threat to Earth’s smallest creatures and the domino effect that their demise would trigger.
Patricia Piccinini, The Awakening, 2019, still from digital video, duration: 9 minutes
The Awakening
Hosfelt Gallery presents the American premiere of Patricia Piccinini's
The Awakening, a 9 minute digital animation about something both quintessentially common and inordinately miraculous.
