The Field Photographs of Alain H. Liogier
Plants of Hispaniola, Dominican Republic 1968–1969
By Brandy Watts
This volume represents an important selection of 116 photographs from a specific window of time and place as viewed through the camera lens of one of the greatest botanists of all time. Ms. Watts has curated an impressive collection of images that not only serve to document Dr. Liogier's research but bring to light the unique way this particular scientist saw the world of plants in their environment. As Ms. Watts states, "Each photograph is an instant within diverging and overlapping trajectories: plant science research, photographic technology, plant species adaptation, habitat transformation, land conservation, climate change, a particular botanist’s research, and an individual’s lifetime." If you are interested in where science and fine art merge, then this book is for you.

Able Fine Art NY Gallery is proud to present the solo exhibition of Jemma Koo, titled "Past Present" in its new gallery on Orchard Street.
“Who has not looked up at the sky, in desperation, for a sign, or something,” wrote artist Paul Chan. The search for self and its meaning in relationship to memory and each other have been explored by all types of artists in contemporary art. In this powerful and visceral exhibition, emerging artist Jemma Koo makes use of the personal as an entry point to this conversation.
The show runs from January 20 to February 2, 2017. Please join us on January 20 for our opening reception where the artist will present a special performance of "Ten Layers" at 7pm.
