Tara Hannant, Amanda Ross, Heather Cohane, Jim Reginato.
For his first photography exhibition ever, Nevil Dwek has captured
a sense of “film” through his lens. Having been a filmmaker
for over ten years, Dwek’s experience as a director gives him
a unique perspective on still photography. The artist often layers
his pictures with images in a subtle way that feels like a dissolve
between scenes in a movie.
Vethers’ paintings and photography have been exhibited in
galleries, museums, and public spaces in New York, Milan, Paris,
and Berlin, and are represented in private and major corporate
U.S. and international collections, including the Dow Jones Collection,
the Davis, Polk and Wardwell Collection, Shell Oil Collection,
and the Benchiser Collection. As a creative consultant to Giorgio
Armani, Calvin Klein, and Dolce & Gabbana, he has designed
groundbreaking concepts for fashion shows and installations.
As part of its ongoing support for the decorative arts, Alexico Group will present
a variety of exhibitions in the 165 Charles Street building during the course
of the year.
