Rebecca Morgan: In The Pines
When: September 10–October 29
Where: Asya Geisberg Gallery (537 W 23rd Street, Chelsea, Manhattan)
Rebecca Morgan’s drawings, ceramics, and paintings are equal parts R. Crumb grotesquerie and Jan Steen humor, as she illustrates the darkness of country life in Pennsylvania. Mining her Appalachian roots, Morgan explores poverty and addiction in portraits like one featured in this show, of a woman smoking a corn cob pipe, her yellow teeth and blotchy skin hinting at the meth overtaking the moonshine.
