    On Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side, the Joe Sheftel Gallery presents a group show with six artists called E. 1027. Handed to me, by the gallery assistant, was the press release with an in-depth story behind the summer home designed by Eileen Gray with Jean Badovici. The complex and fascinating story behind the famous site allows one to fully grasp the relationship between the pieces in the gallery and the house on the French Riviera.

    I was able to converse with Lily Stockman, one of the artists in the show, about her artwork that was created solely for this exhibition. She spoke about her appreciation for the natural beauty of the flowers blooming and surrounding the house when it was abandoned. The contrast between the desertion of the house with the flourishing of flowers as well as the differentiation between the human-constructed house and the pureness and infinite power of nature, create an interesting dynamic. Her floral pieces, with vibrant hues and playful qualities, show plants such as begonias and oleander which were blooming near E. 1027 after the dereliction.

    The Joe Sheftel Gallery exhibits works by Graham Collins, Denise Kupferschmidt, Sofia Leiby, Mike Pratt, Gary Stephan and Lily Stockman. Collectively their artworks express the juxtaposition between the geometric and organic characteristics of the house with the linear, angular shapes portraying the construction of the building, and the curvilinear and loose marks representing the energy and environment of the setting.
