The Purfume Counter : Dawn Cerny & Damien Hoar de Galvan .

A collaborative 2-artist, 2-gallery exhibition.

” Dawn Cerny and Damien Hoar de Galvan share an aesthetic that is both formal and reductive while maintaining a sense of fun and curiosity.  Both artists offer objects that allow us to contemplate their function, texture, and relation to the human body. Also, when shown together, they address issues of usefulness and create a tension of belief albeit fragile.” -Robert Yoder, SEASON
