New York artist GILF! recently unveiled a fresh body of work at Arcilesi Homberg in DUMBO. Entitled i Exam, this brand new series of paintings comes from a different direction (as seen in our visit to her studio) than her previous graff & stencil style. Drawing from the experiences of recent travels to Berlin and Miami and utilizing the 90s visual effects of the “Magic Eye”, GILF flips the retro switch and begs the question that in the age of digital preoccupation and corporate & marketing bombardment, why don’t we take a closer look? On the surface, all the lines and patterns are very visually appealing, but upon closer inspection you’ll realize there’s more than meets the eye. A underlying message reveals itself once you stare at the image. This show is up until March 10th so check it out if you’re in Brooklyn.
