Eric Firestone Loft, 4 Great Jones St., New York, NYEric Firestone Gallery
is proud to announce the exhibition Martha Edelheit, Flesh Walls: Tales from the 60s
. The exhibition will re-introduce the public to Edelheits radical paintings and pioneering subject matter. The exhibition includes multi-panel paintings from her Flesh Wall
series, as well as canvases of elaborately tattooed female figures, and works on paper. The works on paper are a major series from the mid-1960s, depicting a wild, erotic vision of circus performers, and images of paper dolls, reimagined into adult fantasies that explore gender identity, sexual costuming, and sadomasochistic play.
