Maurizio Anzeri: Vintage photographs of circus performers are brought to joyous life in Maurizio Anzeri’s first large-scale exhibition at Haines Gallery. Anzeri combines his signature hand embroidery with materials such as strips of brass and steel, colored paper, and gaffer tape, to create circus scenes that are as whimsical as they are enigmatic, filled with uncanny figures and mysterious emanations. Debuting alongside these images will be his first video work, also entitled In-Equilibrio, which animates his surreal portraiture and landscapes.
Patsy Krebs: Northern California painter Patsy Krebs continues to mine the optical and affective possibilities of reductive painting. With an elegantly refined formal vocabulary and restrained palette, she creates ethereal paintings that explore our perceptions of light, color, and space. The term “aletheia” in Ancient Greek philosophy suggests both an active revealing and its opposite, concealment, pointing towards an essential quality of Krebs’ practice: one that rewards careful viewing, as complex forms and meaning are revealed over time.
