Sophie von Hellermann at Greene Naftali


Throughout the cotton-candy scuzz our attempts to make out images ambiguous leaves what?  We look through the paint at some cloudy apparitions like a Renoir got wet, left in the rain. For all their candy von Hellerman's aren't all that appetizing; Suzanne Hudson called their characters etiolated, plants grown leggy in darkness, a feeling of being deprived of crucial nutrients, teeth-shakingly saccharine, you can almost feel how sticky.
