Wijnanda Deroo: Inside New York Eateries

Wijnanda Deroo: Inside New York Eateries at Robert Mann Gallery. "...Employing her characteristic affinity for distinctive color, d├ęcor and light, Deroo's subtle formalism explores the particular character of each location. These photographs playfully alternate between kitsch and cool, appropriate to their individual subjects. In this sense they take seriously the significance of ornament and adornment, leveling the disparate hierarchies normally associated with these subjects and turning the focus away from the food. These photographs delight in the uncanny trompe l'oeil murals, genre paintings, floral carpeting and odd assemblages of artifacts lining the restaurant interiors." More...
