Letitia Quesenberry: Hyperspace + Little Darlings now on view

Deborah Berke Partners is proud to host artist Letitia Quesenberry’s installations Hyperspace and Little Darlings in our Flatiron studio. The two series include color shifting light boxes and a monumental grid of found and altered images that are purposefully blurred with wax. “In my work I am interested in using abstract lenses, filters, shadow and light as a means of exploring vision’s ambiguity,” she says. Based in Louisville, Quesenberry’s work has been shown in galleries and museums across the country.

Working with and supporting artists is a central tenet of our firm’s philosophy, and we have hosted in our office for more than 20 years. View Hyperspace and Little Darlings by appointment: rsvp@dberke.com. The pieces will be on view through March 9, 2018.
