SARAHCROWN is pleased to present The Signature of All Things – Nature, landscapes, and human belongings: an exhibition of painting, drawing, and photography that revolves around the idea of how both nature and man-made objects reveal crucial aspects of our very personal backgrounds and identities.
The title plays with the different meanings assigned to the term signature. The word is commonly referred to as an identifier, mostly through symbolic representation, or as a lasting impression that uniquely distinguishes an artist throughout the entire production of human artifacts. If you look at the artistry in a particular time period or consider the objects of a certain nation, community or person, you can decipher a lot about that specific group of people. Thus, what shapes an artist can be perceived through their product and vice-versa; every artist reveals or leaves behind some sort of signature regardless of purposeful intent.
The exhibition features works by the following artists: Dan Gratz (USA), Domingo Milella (IT), Elisabeth Smolarz (PL/USA), and Xinran Yuan (CN). It will be featured in the recently newly opened The Yard in Columbus Circle.
