HAN FENG/ NEW WORK
August 13 – September 1, 2021
A celebrated fashion and costume designer, Han Feng began working in photography several years ago when colleagues and friends complimented her on her eye for the medium and challenged her to pick up a camera. A close friend, American photographer Lois Conner, helped her learn the fundamentals of the camera, and before long she was making landscapes in her hometown of Hangzhou, China. When the pandemic hit, she turned to combining meaningful and ephemeral objects from her kitchen and studio in New York. Conner as well as other artists and curator friends quickly noted that she had found her photographic voice.
The Gift , the title of the exhibition comes from her love of ceramics, cuisine, and photography. All the fruits and vegetables in the images were sourced from local specialty and farmers markets in New York City. The ceramic objects and sculptures used in her photographs are gifts from artists around the world as well as pieces from her private collection. “The earth gives us these beautiful even ordinary things,” she says referring to the food objects in her pictures. “I love to share them with friends, I really feel like they are a gift.” Intimate dinner parties she hosts at her studios in New York and Shanghai build on classic Chinese dishes often with an international fusion, much like her still life assemblages.
“During this strange period, I was looking at the many stones, rocks, sculptures, vases, and antiques I have collected from China and the U.S.,” said Han Feng recently. “I began to assemble them and create a small stage on a family table that’s over 100 years old. It was almost like making a Chinese soup with lots of ingredients. Other photographers, artists, curators, and friends were very positive about the work, and it really touched me and encouraged me to keep going. There is often a fragile moment where there is the chance that all the objects could fall down and sometimes during a shoot they would. There is a lot of surprise, fun and joy in the photographs.”
July 23 – August 11, 2021

Ted Kincaid (b. Chattanooga, TN) received his BFA from Texas Tech University and his MFA from the University of Kentucky. Over the course of two decades, Kincaid has systematically subverted the association of photographs with truth through works that explore the play between painting and photography. Through various series, Kincaid walks the line between fact and fiction, constructing manufactured images that seem authentic while also creating photographic images that seem too fantastic to be plausible. Kincaid is recognized in particular for his cloud series, and for the use of the tondo format.
Galleries and institutions throughout the United States have shown his work, including a recent solo exhibition at the Georgia Museum of Art, Athens. Kincaid has also exhibited at the International Print Center of New York; the Savannah College of Art and Design; the San Antonio Museum of Art; and the Loyola University Art Gallery, New Orleans. Kincaid’s work is included in the permanent collections of many public and private organizations, including the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Neiman Marcus Collection, American Airlines Coorporation, the Belo Corporation, the Microsoft Corporation, Pfizer, Inc, Reader’s Digest Corporate Collection, the City of Seattle, Washington, the U.S. State Department, and the Human Rights Campaign Headquarters, Washington, DC.
SARAH HINCKLEY is a painter who lives and paints in Massachusetts. A thirteenth generation Cape Cod native, Sarah draws inspiration from beach, marsh and open sky, sourcing emotion and sampling the elements that surround her studio. Sarah received an MFA from Columbia University and BFA from Tufts University and Museum School of the Fine Arts Boston. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States with including solo exhibitions at Cape Cod Museum of Art, Littlejohn Contemporary Gallery, Cahoon Museum of American Art, and DM Contemporary Gallery. Her paintings have been selected for the U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies program and private and corporate collections including Charles Schwab, Four Seasons Hotels, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Mayo Clinic.
This is Sarah’s first exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition will consist of oil paintings on canvas and gouache and watercolor paintings on paper. Accompanying works are also available for viewing.
