Orchard Windows Gallery hosts Duality of Sand, a Solo 

Exhibition by Max Noy

New York, NY – November 17 – Orchard Windows Gallery is pleased to present "Duality of Sand", a solo show by New York-based photographer Max Noy. Images are on view from December 10th to 16th. Artist reception will be held on Monday, December 10th, 7-9pm.

The still life photographs on display in Duality of Sand depict weathered natural wood fencing along a beach at the state of being nearly buried by the sand. In this state, the sand obstructs and obscures the structure’s intended purpose and renders it an abstract object. The characteristics of the weathered wood and wire are enhanced by the proximity to the sand and the geometric compositions of the sand waves complement the planks. The late afternoon light casts long shadows adding another, parallel, dimension. The series focuses on the tension and interplay between these elements exploring found installations of various sizes, complexity, and states of decay.

Burma portfolio on display in LES

Windows Gallery in LES is showing selected images from the 'Letters to Burma' portfolio. This is the first time prints from the portfolio have been exhibited directly (previously only 20"x30" versions were shown).

Much work went into the portfolio to ensure that the prints were perfect, both from me and from my printer, Peter Milo.

Prints will be on display from December 20th to January 6th. Stop by the gallery at 37 Orchard St (between Grand and Canal). The Artist Reception is Sunday, December 26, 4-7pm.  

Press release:

Windows Gallery is pleased to present a photograpy portfolio by Max Noy.

Few places in the world are more deserving yet infrequently visited as the ancient city of Bagan in Myanmar's Mandalay province. At the heart of it is a plain, roughly the size of Manhattan, filled with thousands of temples dating from 11th-13th centuries. Max Noy's "Letters to Burma" portfolio consists of a series of nine photographs touching on the people and the environment of this beautiful, optimistic, devout, traditional, welcoming, but politically-troubled and largely overlooked region.

Each portfolio contains nine individually numbered prints and a justification page signed by the photographer and printer, presented in a custom folder. Selected images from copy #2 (total of 5 issued) are currently on view. This is the first show of the prints from the portfolio. Large-scale images from the series have been shown previously in Park Slope in Brooklyn and  in Long Island City.

The images are presented as part of a group show from December 20 through January 6. Artist reception will be held on Sunday, December 26th, 4-7pm.

Max Noy was born in Moscow, Russia, in 1980, grew up on the West Coast, graduated from University of Washington in Seattle (2001), and currently lives and works in New York City.  He exhibits widely around New York City area.

Windows Gallery was established in 2010 with a mission of discovering and showcasing the best of emerging artists on the New York art scene. It is located in the heart of the Lower East Side gallery district, at 37 Orchard Street (between Grand and Canal).
