Theresa Saulin's "Night Is A Girl" reviewed by Philadelphia Weekly

Theresa Saulin's show "Night is a Girl" opens this Friday (April 1st) at Tiger Strikes Asteroid.

Philadelphia Weekly reviewed the show as one of their "April First Friday Picks".

"Theresa Saulin, a local artist whose recent works are on view this month at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, evokes both biological systems and man’s predilection for intrusion. “Night is a Girl” showcases the artist’s astonishing aptitude for translating a theme into disparate mediums. Her earthenware sculptures are beautiful yet harrowing mutations of human and botanical forms... The unexpected synthesis of cast-off doll parts and vegetal growths is at once a fascinating novelty and an alarming anomaly, the sort of artifact one might have uncovered from an Old World cabinet of curiosities... By obscuring whole bodies of evidence, Saulin demands a close examination of her diagrams, which like nearly every natural phenomenon, elude the viewers’ total comprehension."

Read the review entire here, and come check out the opening at Tiger Strikes Asteroid on Friday, April 1st from 6-9pm.

Lucy Kim at Slag Gallery, NYC

Lucy Kim has a show coming up at Slag Gallery in New York. "Ubiquitous", featuring work by Lucy Kim and Janos Stone, runs April 12-May 7. The opening reception is Thursday April 14th, 6-8 p.m.

Lucy Kim, along with Jeesoo Lee, took part in a show at Tiger Strikes Asteroid in December 2010. Kim's work "involves the manipulation of advertisements through simple, blunt physical actions" and the use of delicate tin foil, manipulated, painted and then flattened out.

Slag Gallery is located at 531 West 25 St, Ground 10 and is open Tues-Sat., 11am-6pm.
