Jeff Bailey Gallery is pleased to present Fake Plastic Trees, a group exhibition inspired by the song of the same title by Radiohead. The opening reception is June 3rd, 6-8PM and the exhibition continues through July 30th.
Fake Plastic Trees is a plaintive lament about the sameness of so much that surrounds us, cookie-cutter towns, corrupted nature and rampant consumerism.
Striving for idealizations of beauty and glamour, the fake and the manufactured became the standard which we inevitably accept. What is real and meaningful is lost in a world of hype, noise and plastic stand-ins.
Fake Plastic Trees features paintings, drawings, sculpture and photographs by twelve artists: Ben Beaudoin, Paul Brainard, Deborah Brown, Andrea Champlin, Franklin Evans, J.J. Garfinkel, Chris Gentile, Robert Gutierrez, Lucas Knipscher, Jenny Laden, Jon Rappleye and Milton Rosa-Ortiz.
Jeff Bailey Gallery is located at 511 West 25th Street, No. 808, between 10th and 11th Avenues. Gallery hours: June, Tues - Sat 11-6, July, Mon - Fri 11-6. For further information, please contact the gallery at 212.989.0156 or email@example.com.
