Anya Tish Gallery will present "Of Love, Pins, and Needles," an exhibition of work by three international artists: Han Cao, Andrey Chezhin, and Marcella Colavecchio. Inspired by the familiarity of the human figure, each artist utilizes early 20th century darkroom processes to explore the ways in which photography is used as a narrative medium, a means to challenge historical contexts, and a catalyst for modernism.

Known for her signature hand-embroidered vintage photographs, Dallas-based, Vietnamese artist Han Cao examines intersecting ideas of identity, memory, and nostalgia. Similar themes can be found in Austin-based, Italian American artist Marcella Colavecchio’s poetic and intimate digitally manipulated 35mm film photographs, which visually mimic the retro Polaroid prints. Russian artist, Andrey Chezhin’s 1980-1990’s body of work is comprised of silver gelatin sepia prints that give homage to the works of iconic modernist artists, such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Jackson Pollock, amongst others.

This collection of works allows viewers to enter a time machine where they will be challenged to define their own compelling narratives within the context of each artist’s unique photographic aesthetic.

The exhibition will remain on display through April 20.
