“For a long time beauty was a dirty word within the realm of art.
“For a long time beauty was a dirty word within the realm of art. But it is certainly recaptured now.” Interior Designer Geraldine Duskin said holding a certain poise behind her voice. This poise is effortlessly projected onto both the exterior and interior of Ghostprint Gallery’s recent relocation to Scott’s Addition.
With its modern audience, Ghostprint Gallery’s recent move to Scott’s Addition on North Boulevard from the Arts District on Broad, without fail, will be sure to evoke a shift of audience.
“We went to Broad because we felt downtown was the happening space to be with the art walk and the district itself. And we were used to living downtown and responded to that element,” Duskin said. “With that space, we felt like it had really great potential. It was big enough to show large scale work as it had an intimacy that was very nice. And in a way, I am going to miss that sort of intimacy.”
However, the relocated Ghostprint Gallery in Scott’s Addition carries an entity that exudes a geist of detailed and refined taste. As if one is walking into a modern metropolitan gallery, voices echo within the vast interior, designed with stark-white exposed brick, that stretches from the polished cement floors up to lofted ceilings.
This modern yet classic space comes with Ghostprint Gallery and Duskin’s new agenda in mind: to present artful beauty both visually with chosen works, and physically with her own poetica of interior design.
“There’s an intensity to each work that I find very compelling, but also very approachable,” Duskin said about future curated shows in the new space. “With the new interior design element in Ghostprint, the furniture pieces in the gallery may allow people to see and grasp the idea of how beautiful art incorporations into homes can be.”
The walls within the gallery carry pieces that display the precision, skill, and technicality of each artist presented while the floor holds fine and select pieces of furniture placed by Duskin herself. This amalgam directly represents Duskin and her prime vision for Ghostprint Gallery and its future by creating a sort of still-life performance with the showcased art and interior pieces.
Ghostprint Gallery will hold its grand reopening on September 10th with Spanish baroque trained artist Juan Perdiguero and his exhibition, “Birds.” This will be Perdiguero second grand opening with Geraldine Duskin at Ghostprint Gallery.
With Perdiguero’s demonstration of the dark and graceful movement of his classic-contemporary exhibition of predatory birds, there’s much to relate with the movement of Ghostprint Gallery.
“I knew that Juan would make the most impact, his work is so strong and technical.” Duskin mentioned. “It’s not just visual. He has some sort of control with his media. Something that I admire”.
The relocated Ghostprint Gallery will hold its official grand opening at 1202 N.Boulevard on September 10th from 6pm to 10pm and will be exhibiting Juan Perdiguero and his exhibit “Birds” from then until the end of October 2015.
Geraldine Duskin is also working with art jeweler Kathy Emerson who is a long time friend in the Ghostprint Gallery space.
