Standard Deviation: to shift, split away from the norm, average. the two idiosyncratic worlds of Jenny Le and Janet Levy merge within the realm of the exhibition "Standard Deviation." Departure from the norm and escape from the expectation of models regarded as the common value, the works selected showcase a collective that reaches away from any typical curation formula. This exhibition assembles established artists alongside fashion designers, photographers, directors, and architects. Offering the viewer an opportunity to look at a variety of distinctive works interacting together rather than formulating standards in which the works should derive.

See Line Gallery hours Monday - Friday 11am-5pm and by appointment. for further information regarding the exhibition please contact Janet Levy cell 917 604 3114

Tyler Vlahovich | Opening

Tyler Vlahovich | I Drank the Kool Aid
November 5 - December 4
Opening Reception Saturday, Nov 6th, 6-9pm

"My work is an expression of certainty and ambiguity. I mean to link these interests in a practical and accessible way.

My approach is to set in motion a certain kind of tension through the seduction of abundance, inquiry and discovery. I start with the rudiments of composition - volumes, values, lines and their variants - and methodically build toward excess. My aim is to have these straightforward elements spar with the spatial ambiguities they propagate; and, because the repetition and variation of these elements is plain, it quickly becomes a game of how I can relate or cluster them. Somehow a rapport emerges that slows the read of the overall image while leveling a richly charged field to study. The resulting image is intended to be compelling by means of its uncomfortable vagueness. I use contour line as a means to plainly articulate form and space while hinting at figuration. Often the clarity of the line is bent toward misinterpretation. Figuration steps in to maintain a point of reference. Contour lines also suggest a great deal with extreme economy and can easily slip or flash between two and three-dimensional representation. I like how this flux can delay a quick appraisal. And, as the title of the show suggests, I’ve not only embraced the promising/worrisome paradox of clarity but the attraction has become a calling."
