Exhibition : « The fallen fawn »The mystery of a forgotten piece of luggage is the catalyst that begins this new tale from Holly Andres. The intrigue that grows from this discovery recounts the artist’s own childhood memories of her older sisters’ encounter with a woman’s lost suitcase. The contents soon become valuable treasures but are kept hidden like a forbidden secret. Robert Mann Gallery is pleased to announce The Fallen Fawn, the latest series from Holly Andres. With nineteen cinematic images, a vivid adventure of adolescent identity will unfold throughout this exhibition.
Drawing from Andres’ own memories, The Fallen Fawn continues her examination of female subjectivity. Two girls will lead us down a road wrought with dichotomy. Themes that address the complexity of childhood are displayed as the girls rationalize fee...
Robert Mann Gallery expose à Art Miami 2011
Robert Mann Gallery sera présent à Art Miami 2011. Pour cette exposition, la galerie présente une installation progressive de photographies contemporaines de divers galeries et artistes, comme un concentré du travail de Robert Frank incluant des images iconiques de la publication The Americans.

Dans le travail de Julie, on constate un mélange de spontanéité et d'audace.

Amidst well-known masters of the genre such as Irving Penn and Paul Outerbridge, photographers such as Ansel Adams best known for their achievements in other areas line up alongside contemporary artists ...
Holly Andres Sparrow laneHolly Andres's first solo exhibition in New York will feature photographs from the series Sparrow Lane, including the debut of new works in the series. Displaying a rich understanding of color and composition, Andres's tableaux depict young women on the threshold of adulthood, propelled by their curiosity and sense of discovery. Sparrow Lane is a strange yet familiar world filled with floral wallpapers, satin dresses, vanity mirrors, and family photos in gilded frames — the trappings of adolescence in a bygone age.
Drawing equally upon Hitchcockian cinematic tropes and Nancy Drew dust jackets, Andres's stunning photographs plumb psychological depths that are as quixotic as they are visually seductive. Her protagonists seem caught in states of hyper-self-consciousness: suspicious of watching eyes out of frame, th...
