Yasamin Keshtkar and Keer Tanchak
March 4th – April 2nd 2011
Opening reception: Friday March 4th from 6 to 8pm
DEAN PROJECT gallery is thrilled to announce Lascivious, a two person exhibition of new paintings by Yasamin Keshtkar and Keer Tanchak. The opening reception with the artists will be held on Friday March 4th from 6 to 8pm.
Yasamin Keshtkar and Keer Tanchak’s paintings are full of playfulness and liveliness, portraying a variety of subjects and concepts based on personal and collective ideas of identity and desire.
For this exhibition both artists were asked to provide paintings from different series of their work. The gallery installed the selected works in a non-thematic structure, resulting in a painting salon, where a lively conversation concerning romance and painting emerges. The array of forms and materials used by these artists contributes to a genuine touch of openness and the maturity in their handling of the craft, which makes this exhibition a joyful visual experience.
