As a contemporary art gallery with a focus on making women in the art world visible and successful,our presentation at VOLTA was a pivotal moment in our history. We believed in the works of Ashley Norwood Cooper – so much so that we reasoned with the curator of the fair that her works were important and unsung – and that these important and large figurative paintings needed to be seen.
We were beyond thrilled with this mention by Art Critic Jillian Steinhauer of the New York Times at the end of the first day of our presentation “I would be remiss if I didn’t mention one figurative painter here: Ashley Norwood Cooper, with ZINC contemporary gallery. In high-key color, Ms. Cooper renders intimate scenes of women who seem immersed in their interior lives and creativity (always with cats at hand). Tender and funny, the works stopped me in my tracks.”
