Condo New York round-up II. Chapter New York is hosting Adams and Ollman Gallery, Portland OR, with a group exhibition featuring Julie Béna, Julie Curtiss and Joy Feasley. Julie Curtiss pairs dark humour with contemporary surrealism. Her psychologically charged paintings play with the female grotesque and subvert notions of feminine culture and deeply-ingrained gender roles. Curtiss distils the observed world into tightly cropped compositions of hair, female breasts, and claw-like fingers that magnify form to emphasise color and shape. Her paintings tap the imagination of the unconscious and slyly corrupt notions of modern femininity. At Chapter through July 27.
