On view at Yancey Richardson Gallery is a show of new work entitled The Party’s Over . Images include places of former fantasy, faded with time and neglect, ranging from a bird dropping-stained, centuries-old Tuscan windowsill to a gaudy, drowning plastic shark behind a sports bar in a forgotten Pennsylvania mountain town. The new work addresses Kereszi’s interests in the problems of escapism and the trope of beautiful decay, and uses a more subtle palette than previous work has employed. The title refers to not only the image of a mirrored disco ball placed in a cardboard box for storage until more glamorous times arrive, but also to the current economic downturn – the recession that shows few signs of receding fast.
Open May 24th, and up through July 6th, 2012
