Manjari Sharma’s Surface Tension is a selection of photographic and video works of people swimming underwater. In this body of work, figures transform into landscapes, limbs into fins, shapes become amorphous, and identities unknowable as new forms emerge. Sharma’s projects have been exhibited internationally and featured in prominent publications such as The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, CNN World, NPR, Vice, and Forbes India, among others.
Eric Tillinghast’s paintings explore water isolated as a geometric shape. The artist collects vintage postcards of swimming pools and paints out surrounding details with white acrylic paint and a minuscule paint brush so that the painted area holds the illusion of being the paper. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Albright-Knox Gallery, the John Michael Kohler Art Center, the New Mexico Museum of Art, Portland State University, and the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
This program is presented by Richard Levy Gallery in partnership with Bobby Beals Presents… at Bishop’s Lodge Auberge Resort in Santa Fe.
