Giordanne Salley: Full Moon Hot Sun

May 12 - June 14, 2015

Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects presents Full Moon Hot Sun*, a solo exhibition of new paintings by the young, Brooklyn based painter, Giordanne Salley, at our project space SHFAP@PROJECTOR, located at 237 Eldridge Street, around the corner from our main gallery at 208 Forsyth St.

Giordanne Salley (b. 1986) was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. She received her MFA in painting from Boston University in 2013. Singled out by Roberta Smith in The New York Times, as a young artist to look our for, this is Salley’s first solo exhibition in New York City.

Giordonne Salley’s paintings explore reality close-up. Sensitively textured surfaces dramatize the moment materials touch or overlap. Her paintings explore the intersection of love and nature – a couple fooling around in the woods, a boat trip down the river. Her paintings function as nostalgic haikus. They echo with warm laughter and sweet sadness, conjuring a fleeting afternoon light.

In the artist’s own words, “These paintings are about being in love and how that feels when you think about it later.” Her work appeared in New American Painting in 2013. After college and before her Master’s degree, Salley worked at The Vermont Studio Center where she had a solo show in 2011. Please contact the gallery for further information or photographs.
