Channeling the Unseen World will feature recent sculpture of Strong-Cuevas and photographs from acclaimed photographer Christophe von Hohenberg’s upcoming book The White Album of the Hamptons (Glitterati Editions).

In the foreword Jay McInerney writes of this recent body of von Hohenberg’s work, “The ghostly figures on the sand, silhouetted against the surf and the sky, might be famous New Yorkers, but their individuating characteristics have been bleached away by the sun and the figurative squint of the observer.  (Although curiously, the dogs seem to have personalities.)  The humans have become anonymous and diminished against the overwhelming backdrop of the ocean.  These images are by turns soothing, and haunting and yet somehow familiar.”

Communication through space and time, the exploration of outer space and of inner consciousness are recurring themes in Strong Cuevas’s work. In her own words, “I like experiment. In short, I am an innovator within a classical tradition.” Careful attention is paid to the surface of her sculptures; and, according to the medium, some are polished to a gleaming finish, some are brushed, and others are treated with a patina.

Channeling the Unseen World is Strong Cuevas and von Hohenberg’s second joint exhibition at MM Fine Art. The exhibition will be on view August 22 through September 7, 2020, with an indoor/outdoor opening reception Saturday, August 22, 6 to 8 PM.
