East Williamsburg-based Catherine Haggarty’s dreamy domestic still lives at Geary Contemporary on the Bowery are collages of oil stick, airbrush, and acrylic. “My work right now is specifically about my home, which is also in Brooklyn,” Haggarty tells Brooklyn Magazine. “I’ve been paying attention to the architecture of the rooms, the light and the floors we walk on.” Geary adds that her “use of diverging perspectives and light sources is a narrative tool” that “invites a productive confusion and asks the viewer to suspend their disbelief.” As we collectively emerge from conditions that kept us indoors the past two years. Haggarty’s work advocates for a discussion straight from the subconscious, lest the memories stagnate in the shadow realm her paintings stem from. On view through June 5.
