Inka Essenhigh’s futuristic Uchronia is a pastoral place where what was once work is now play.
As part of the Drawing Center’s The Artist’s Eye series, Essenhigh, along with artist and critic Matthew Weinstein, will take visitors through Reeves’s exhibition next Tuesday.
Essenhigh reveals a freedom that resonates with all manner of fusion: of figure and design, of abstraction and narrative, of sentiment and humor, and more generally, of ambitious painting with a readable narrative.
Essenhigh and Mumford — who live together and work in adjoining studios on the Lower East Side — are unafraid to make declarations about what motivates the other.
This year’s Tribeca Film Festival will still be picking winners from a pile of nominated indie and otherwise films, but the best of the best will be getting a different prize this year — works of art. Including the likes of Robert De Niro Sr., Inka Essenhigh and Nate Lowman, it’s all about artists giving to other artists.
