The Art Department at the State University of New York at New Paltz is pleased to announce PEEP HOLES / PRIVATE EYES, a group exhibition of artwork by selected alumni from the SUNY New Paltz Painting and Sculpture programs hosted by Dorsky Gallery Curatorial Programs in Long Island City, NY. 

In this day and age it’s hard to not be a peeping tom. We are all voyeurs, we no longer scale trees to catch a modest glimpse of a bra unclipping. Today our viewing pleasures have grown sophisticated. Our hungry gaze is insatiable, filtered by megapixels as we dive deep into the web to catch illicit views of other's lives and psyches.  

PEEP HOLES / PRIVATE EYES features four artists on their individual voyeuristic mission, questioning the nature of the "human lens" today, and asking: Is our gaze that of perverse sensation seeker, or that of the tender witness?

Opening a dialogue about internal and external perceptions, Ashley Caferro (BFA ‘12) challenges the idea of the public and private self through the use of body casts and videos. (http://n02123586.wix.com/ashleycaferro

Drawing on the kitsch genres of horror and burlesque, Sam DeMonte (BFA ‘14) re-imagines her past (both fictitious and real) and creates new memories in the form of sculpture, installation, video and performance. (www.samdemonte.wix.com/artist)

Employing a uniquely honed skill set, Christian Little (BFA ‘05, MFA ‘15) paints wildly mannered, figure-based scenarios that are informed by class structure and draw on obsolete commercial illustration. (http://christianlittle.tumblr.com/

Making use of found surfaces and graphic line, Erik Schoonebeek (BFA ‘06) infuses a psychological narrative into his paintings by personifying objects and objectifying the figure. He is represented by Jeff Bailey Gallery in Hudson, NY. (www.baileygallery.com )
