UNDER PRESSURE, OVER TIME
1. the process by which ordinary substances are transmuted into precious ones; how gemstones are created.

2. multiple exposures, prisms, quantum physics, 16mm, twigs, shakings, moans, deserts, caves, narratives, abandoned spaces, and gentle interruptions.

Opens tonight, Sept 11, 6-8p:“Once Everything Was Much Better Even The Future” Nir HodPaul Kasmin Gallery, 515 W27th St., NYCexhibition of painting and sculpture features a large sculptural work, a snowglobe containing a moving scale model of a pumpjack encased in oil and swirling “snow” comprised of gold-colored flakes, a reflection of the immense wealth generated by the oil trade. Characteristic of Hod’s work is a dark glamour that is both alluring and menacing, exemplified in his three new series of paintings. In I Want Always to be Remembered in Your Heart, smoldering flames are superimposed on delicate flowers, alluding to the paradoxical coexistence of beauty and destruction. - thru Oct 25
