Winston Wächter presents dual openings of Amanda Manitach's Dirty and Dirk Staschke's Perfection of Happenstance. Dirty features a sequence of Tumblr-like mantras, ranging from "psycho but cute" to "everything is fine." Color pencils lay the foundation for hombre patterns that mimic water-color fluidity, and written expressions reclaim the history of female hysteria. In Perfection of Happenstance, the canvas is an illusion. What looks like still-life paintings of skulls, angel busts, and full bouquets are actually three-dimensional sculptures. And in Staschke's series of actual paintings, thick bouquets melt past the frame's boundaries.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm between November 16, 2017 and January 10, 2018
