Edition of 700

Excerpt from text by Dan Rule:

"โ€ฆThese are reflections on our hilarious and slightly disturbing state of affairs as much as they are gags. Payneโ€™s works capture and wrangle the vaguely biographical images, texts and details we not only release, but also actively flaunt, in the increasingly pervasive public domain."

NICK SETHI Opens Friday March 21 6-9pm

Ed. Varie is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Nick Sethi withย Opening Reception Friday, March 21, 2014 from 6-9pm.

Orbiting the body of work presented in a self published zine, FOR YOUR EYES ONLY Vol 1., Nick Sethi continues to explore and expand the social investigation of intimate self-portraits, or as the Oxford dictionaries made the official in 2013, the selfie.

From a massive and ongoing collection of found photographs from the internet, Sethi dives deep into the phenomenon of the selfie as a form of self expression operating within the confines of public approval. The selfie has presented itself as a cyclical form of self-expression both projecting and reflecting simultaneously, leaving us to wonder which comes first. The availability and anonymity of these images transforms this newborn narcissistic medium into a free radical of sorts, an unpaired extension of ourselves. The images keep the viewer at arms length both metaphorically and physically, while exposing the process through a meticulously executed partial identity.

On his own journey of self-discovery and expression, Sethi’s social media feeds teem with selfies. On a recent introduction to the process of UV tanning, Sethi became interested in ‘what else could be out there’. Digging deep into the trenches of internet images, Sethi collected and dissected hundreds of self-portraits, all hand held, taken on a camera phone, circulating for free on the internet, and in tanning salons. Transcending the C-print, the color photographic images are printed on aluminum and mounted to the walls unframed, and will be on view in the dimly light gallery space; an ode to their place of creation and discovery.

Sethi is an American photographer of Indian descent who lives and works in Brooklyn. Sethi has a B.A. in communications from NYU. He has worked with notable photographers such as Chadwick Tyler and Terry Richardson. He has several published books, the most recent with Dashwood, titledย Pul Ke Niche.

Honoring the birthplace of the work in this solo show, limited copies of FOR YOUR EYES ONLY Vol 1 will be available on opening night.ย ย Nick Sethi’s work will be on view at Ed. Varie from Friday March 21 through April 6, 2014.ย For further information please contact the gallery director atย info@edvarie.com.

SAVE THE DATE, Gallery reopens March 21st with a solo show by Nick Sethi.

Happy Holidays and Hibernation from Ed. Varie!!

Wishing you and yours a warm and cozy holiday break, with lots of whatever it is you enjoy doing when doing nothing. We will be visiting families coast to coast and settling into a short hibernation as the new year turns to 2014.
************************************************
We have had an overwhelmingly exciting year, we can’t wait to recoup and regroup and will dive into the new year with our annual inventory; and therefore we will be closed to the public for the month of January.
We are super grateful we have a new star internย Leigh Metzlerย to help us out with that!
We have been blessed with a ruling crew of friendly faces, but as time moves on so do some our our favorite helping hands.
Winslow Larocheย is officially graduated, maintaing his always influencial and trend settingย blog, doing some gallery shows and working in the photo biz. Gallery assistant Livia Charman enjoyed a summer and a semester with us, while simultaneously studying at Sarah Lawrence, and is taking the next semester in Beijing! Whoa we are so jealous, and crossing our fingers she will have the time to come back to us when she returns. We have also been fortunate to have the ongoing help of art handler//installer Zack Concepcion, and non-profit development advisor Sarah Hopkins, I don’t know how we would have done it ALL without YOU!!!
**************************************************
2013 was a year of action and we took flight to visit you all in some of our favorite cities.
We hit Los Angeles for the Inagural LA Art Book Fair at the Hammer Mususm, we surprised Paris with a short and secret Artist and Book Salon, we joined forces with Japan and built the busiest booth for the NY Art Book Fair at MOMA PS1, we packed up the artwork of 9 artists and had a group show in Miami for Basel, and we couldn’t be happier with the results, not to mention getting to spend some quality time with you folks.
**************************************************
At home we hosted a bunch of great shows continuing with our strong and valuable mission to bring new artists and fresh content to the art community, I hope that you were able to catch a couple this past season!

We still have some copies of SWITCHEROO! Order HERE

In 2010, Vancouver-based photographer Hana Pesutย embarked on a photo project: taking pics of couples, friends, and family twice: once in their own outfits and again wearing each others outfits against the same background.

The result is Switcherooโ€”a funny, poignant take on gender bending that conveys an enduring bond between Pesutโ€™s subjects, no words necessary.
