Amy Nathan “Glyph Slipper” Review

Amy Nathan’s debut solo exhibition at CULT Aimee Friberg proves her and her work to be adept at slipping in and out of signs and signifiers and pursuing threads of meaning and narrative deftly through a variety of media.

“Put-Ons” Write-Up

An opportunity for a casual garment to put on airs and get away with something its more formal relations, the button-downs, cannot.

“Boron VII” Promo Blurb

In 2016, Boron found himself on the remote Greek island of Thirasia. Little more than a rocky outcropping in the Aegean Sea with only a hotel and a monastery, it was the perfect setting for emptying the mind and letting tired grey matter be buffeted by the wind and salt mists.
