Cade Tompkins Projects is pleased to present Orit Hofshi: Crossing at this year’s installment of the SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018. The curatorial theme is A Stranger Comes to Town which is brilliantly captured by Orit’s work in printmaking.

Orit Hofshi creates monumental works depicting distant, neo-romantic landscapes. In her works, the forces of nature and destruction mingle and mix as she maintains an ongoing dialogue between the figures and their encircling settings. Realism and expressionism merge, creating scenes that are somewhat threatening and disquieting rather than pastoral. Her haunting vistas of ruins and rugged landscapes respond to sublime forces of nature, consequences of war, and time itself. The wanderer or vagabond in Hofshi’s work takes on a more elusive form. The figures appear contemporary, relatively calm and composed, but at the same time seem alienated by the surrounding landscape. Their dispositions convey a sense of expectation, accentuated by a sense of aimless presence. While depicted in a concrete physical context, the overriding sense is that the more momentous journey is the internal and introspective one.

About SPRING/BREAK Art Show directly from the source:

SPRING/BREAK Art Show is an internationally recognized exhibition platform using underused, atypical and historic New York City exhibition spaces to activate and challenge the traditional cultural landscape of the art market, typically but not exclusively during Armory Arts Week. The seventh annual fair will be held from March 6th — March 12th, 2018 at 4 Times Square.

By first inhabiting St. Patrick’s Old School, and then the former James A. Farley Post Office, the initiative offers independent curators free space within New York City landmarks, past and future. In exchange for no-cost exhibition space, visionary perspectives both established and unknown are charged with engaging these areas under a unifying theme and pushed to extend the boundries of typical market week practices, low overhead and shifting curatorial themes their assets to this end.

All artworks in the show are displayed and available for purchase online, giving artists unknown, emerging, mid-career, and beyond a virtual compliment to their tactile exhibition.

Low-cost exhibition space and low-cost entry for art patrons, public, and practioners alike aims to widen the arts audience in New York and broaden the dialog of what constitutes value and economy in a 21st Century city.
