Picture Farm Gallery is pleased to announce an ongoing Zine series featuring our passions, our friends and the passions of our friends.
Each Zine will be a limited print run featured on a single “pop up” gallery night where the Zines and select prints will be available for purchase.
We kick off project Friday April 24th in the gallery space with the launch of Jair Bortoleto’s “Layers.”
“I’ve heard Jair Bortoleto’s name more than few dozen times over the years, something exotic over the surfy space time continuum. Something about Brazil and Surf and Art the inevitable bywords. So when Ty Breuer popped up recently, whispering the name “Jair Bartoleto” over the email, there he was again, suddenly in the middle my consciousness, attached to not one but two amazing photography projects and the sort of passionate spirit to make a last-minute Brazil to New York show happen.
We hemmed and hawed about which show to present: his poetic images of the a decidedly thoughtful sea, or his multi-faceted documentation of the 2014 North Shore season. In the end, pragmatism won out and we opted for the lyrically layered imagery of a magically aggressive Hawaiian travelogue. Given the time we had to produce the show, the sheer visceral readability of these photos made the most sense.
We couldn’t be more proud to show Jair‘s work and produce Picture Farm Gallery’s inaugural zine featuring his one of a kind perspective. And I couldn’t be more stoked to finally meet the myth.”
