Andrew Bush's exhibition will include approximately 24 works, spanning five years. It is his first one-man show in New York. The large color prints document his two year sojourn in a great Georgian country house in Kilkenny, Ireland and later work carried out in Los Angeles, where he now lives. Work from the Irish series has been seen in the "Recent Color Acquisitions" show at The Museum of Modern Art in 1985, and the exhibition "Flowers: Photographs from the Collection of Sam Wagstaff", which appeared at the Detroit Institute of Art, and the Parrish Museum in Southhampton in 1985-96.
Bush's work is both formally rigorous as well as extremely romantic. His images are almost always unpeopled, and have a timeless quality. The places are quiet yet have a sense of imminent drama.
His work is included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The International Center of Photography, The George Eastman House, Yale University, The Readers' Digest Collection, Manufacturers Hanover, J. Walter Thompson International and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind.
The Exhibition will run from May 6 through June 7th. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, May 10, 2-6 p.m. The address is 411 W. Broadway (the entrance is on Spring St.), fifth floor.
