Dweck, Mermaids, Ditch Plains, 2008, wraparound cover.
New York, Staley-Wise Gallery, Mermaids, 19 June -- 6 September
Fascinated with the movement of water and the female form, here Dweck combines the two in this alluring study. As the cover image for his book Mermaids, this work captures light and shadow, distortion and reflection with transformative and mysterious effect.
