Two Exhibits on Two Continents

I'm so excited to announce that my work is being featured in two exhibits this month! The two galleries are on completely opposites points in the world and that makes it all the more wild and surreal for me.

Beginning on September 24th until September 30th, four of my images from an on-going abstract series that I have been working on will be at the Thavibu Gallery in Bangkok, Thailand. Yes, Bangkok! This is a special show of Argentinian Art in Bangkok curated by my dear friend and art dealer Andrés Bardon of Arteclasica in Buenos Aires. I am very honored to be part of this exhibit and thrilled to share the news here with you today!

Also, a bit closer to home, my work has been selected for an exhibit at the Vermont Photoplace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont.  The show, Seeing Myself, Seeing Others: The Art of the Portrait, was juried by Andy Bloxham and it is the second time that my work is being shown at this beautiful gallery.  I am especially happy about this show because one of my favorite images from my personal archives was chosen for exhibition. 

This self-portrait within a self-portrait has a lot of significance for me.  I took the image within the image when I first decided to leave my career as an attorney.  I spent a few weeks visiting my family in Argentina and traveling and I was feeling lost and having regrets about quitting my job.  I took so many photos while I was away but it was a series of self-portraits that haunted me the most.  When I came home I made a stack of prints but I kept coming back to the image within the image here.  The woman in that photo reminds me today of how far I've come.  I took the photo that was ultimately selected when I came back to New York.  I was still hiding behind the old me but feeling my way around my new life and realizing more and more each day that all of these experiences make me who I am.
