TONIGHT: “Flame Tempered” A Solo Show by Phoenix Lindsey-Hall

Flame Tempered
Friday, November 22, 2013
6:00pm to 10:00pm
at The Living Gallery

The Living Gallery is proud to announce, “Flame Tempered,” the first New York solo exhibition of mixed media artist Phoenix Lindsey-Hall. With graceful chaos, Lindsey-Hall uses ceramic to transform everyday objects that were used as weapons in specific gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender hate crimes.

The cornerstone of this show is her large-scale ceramic installation, which is derived from a hate crime that happened just blocks from The Living Gallery in 2008. “Flame Tempered” is an organic cyclone of over 70 ceramic baseball bats suspended in a mid air tumble. Illuminated with a single bare bulb casting long shadows through out the space, the work is an explosion of drama, perception and emotion. Peggy McGlone, art critic for The Star Ledger in Newark, NJ, recently described the piece as “at once beautiful and intimidating.”

This exhibition is made possible through support from Slideluck, where Lindsey-Hall recently received Crowd Favorite at Slideluck Bushwick II, The Living Gallery and Brooklyn Brewery.
