Two Weeks Is The New "Retro"

Maybe the title of the show, Flip, refers to the artists’ opposite approaches, or their embrace of the decorative, but it certainly doesn’t refer to their attitude towards their work. Then again maybe Herting and Beach demonstrate two varied solutions to the harnessing of design in the interest of art, which, as they say, can be two sides of the same coin.

Sometimes it's hard to let go. Our last show, Flip, was so nice that we still smile wistfully when it crosses our mind. But while it was on the walls, we got a visit from the incomparable Hrag Vartanian, who put his review up at The Brooklyn Rail. We're always happy when he stops in!

Also, just because the show's over doesn't mean it's all gone. Stop by and check out our secret basement space and enjoy the semi-permanent collection, including work by Flip artists Nora Herting and Rachel Beach!

Yeah, But Our Housing Market Is A Growth Industry

Website phillips ART expert has chosen to pay a little attention to Ross Racine and Peter Feigenbaum with a short review of our current show, There There. We're very happy they liked it as much as we do!

Artist Meets Artist

Our good friend Nora Herting got together with our good friend Ross Racine and a marvelous interview was the result.

Nora Herting: I am fascinated by your process and how you came to work this way. What attracted you to the computer?

Ross Racine: Until ‘85 I worked on the computer as a designer/programmer. I knew the possibilities. I had a longing for images that were non-material like dream images. I got Photoshop 3 and never looked back.
