Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present Root of the Head, an exhibition that will bring together the work of Karen Azoulay, Bianca Beck, and Kylie Lockwood.
Merging iconography of earth-elements and the female form such as the mask, flowers or mud, Azoulay's work is filtered through a layered practice of performative sculpture, photography, and mixed media collage. Beck's allegiance is to guttural impulses, experimentation, and action - painting directly with her hands and mixing media, she creates visually loud sculptures that engage with mortality and the experience of body-hood. Through an intimate relationship to materials, Lockwood's work attempts to reconcile the experience of living in a body with things such as cognitive neuroscience and the history of sculpture.

Bahamas Biennale is excited to announce Fruiting Body,a solo presentation by Brook Hsu.
One day, after I’d grown very tired of eating so many kiwis, I started to eat lots of pears. For awhile I was eating pears every day. I’d put a pear in my Baggu bag printed with bunnies holding donuts on it and walk to my studio. When it is really hot in Los Angeles, I don’t really want to eat anything except fresh fruit. Like I said… for awhile I was eating kiwis, and then I moved onto pears. I have a Bosch pear in my fruit bowl at home right now. The other night at the bar, instead of drinking (which I really wasn’t in the mood to do), I ate an extra ripe and juicy red Bartlett pear and people thought that was especially cool. This pear in particular was so ripe that it dripped all over me and the floor and caused my hands and face to be a little sticky.
I propose the question: how are pears, vomit, bunny-dogs, mushrooms, stools and fountains related?

Vidas also uses humor to convey witty concepts and ideas through his neon work.
