Step into a world of light and shade at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery on West 21st Street as its two levels presented works from artists that are distinctively immersive. AF came in on April 18th for a double treat as we explored the first floor to get embraced by the cocoon of shaded lights or rather lantern installations that made it a nocturnal exploration with the works of Martin Boyce. On the second floor, it opened up to the white light box as photography by Hannah Starkey filled our senses with its dense color palette and fantastical theme. AF photographers, Max Noy & Olya Turcihin, captured the polar opposites presented by this gallery in Chelsea. All it proves is that there’s never enough art to delight diehard aficionados in all hours of the night or day – day or night!
