From September 1-29, 2017, New City Arts presents Selves and Selfies, an exhibition of prints by Sarah Ho and paintings by Eileen French.
Sara's recent work explores the themes of Doppelgangers, doubles and identities. These works are a contemplative exploration of what lies in the space between multiple selves.
Eileen’s current body of work is inspired by found images on Social Media, enjoying the profoundly different way that portraiture now comes to us through a proliferation of selfies in our daily feeds. She considers these works to be a collaborative, community building experience.
