In a world of highly polished, commercially hyped NY galleries, it was a treat to see Alesia Exum‘s show, Seconds, at the Strange Loop Gallery, 27 Orchard Street. As described on the gallery’s website – “In these instant portraits, Alesia captures a private moment in a public place, showing a quiet beauty amidst the chaos.” Not only are Alesia’s portraits, strong, spontaneous and memorable, the gallery is also a very cool, unconventional place to visit. It changes its look for every show. Alesia’s small gem portraits are framed in gold which makes the images sparkle and simultaneously puns on the preciousness of the art world. The show is up until April 30.
