Halsey McKay Gallery

Two current solo exhibitions are being held at the Halsey McKay Gallery In East Hampton. Denise Kupferschmidt’s fourth solo show, “Solastalgia,” turns her direct and graphic imagery away from depiction of the figure and towards human impact on the landscape. In a series of new paintings and works on paper, heads morph into setting and rising suns, while repeating footsteps appear in and out of prismatic roads and cities. Upstairs, a suite of Steven Cox paintings find him also reducing his compositions in his second solo show with the gallery. “Tattarratat,” a palindrome, plays on the action of reading a gesture both forwards and backwards. The five recent paintings on view are constructed with oil paint impressions, each layer mirroring the structure of the one beneath. The shows run through November 16.

Drawing Room Gallery
