Anoka Faruqee ’94 Exhibition at Koenig & Clinton

Anoka Faruqee ’94 is opening a new solo exhibition entitled Rainbows and Bruises at Koenig & Clinton in New York City tomorrow. Rainbows and Bruises will be on display from February 23rd to April 8th, 2017. An opening reception will be held on February 23rd from 6-8 PM at the gallery.

Koenig & Clinton’s press release observes, “By carefully calibrating the color relationship between paint layers Faruqee employs the principles of visual interference to slow down and allow for a chromatic complexity that signals light, atmosphere, and volume. Paintings of similar pattern vary widely. A painting with greater light/dark contrast will create the effect of a reflective topographic surface, whereas another painting with minimal contrast creates the atmospheric effect of diffuse white light passing through a lens or prism. The most atmospheric paintings in the exhibition emulate the qualities of rainbows as signs of femininity, alterity, optimism, and inclusiveness.”

The gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday from 11 AM – 6 PM and by appointment.
