Jennifer Moses’ Elbow Room: An Interview in Images with Linda Leslie Brown
Jennifer Moses’ quizzical, layered paintings are packed with physical and conceptual content. They also manage to pay homage, in ways both straightforward and sly, to a panoply of artists -some of whose work you may recognize below. Elbow Room, her show on view this month at Kingston, is a visual feast you won’t want to miss.

See you at Elbow Room!
