NU Hotel Brooklyn is pleased to showcase “Robin Roi: The Root of the Matter” in partnership with Welancora Gallery and “Verdant Oasis — My Brooklyn Botanic Garden” with Ella Yang Studio.
“Robin Roi: The Root of the Matter” will be on view in the NU Hotel lobby. The solo exhibition is inspired by Roi’s interest in pattern and repetition from the natural and synthetic worlds. With a career spanning over four decades, she received ample opportunities to immerse herself in both worlds by working, at The Drawing Center; The American Crafts Museum; The Heller Galley and exhibiting her “Pattern Paintings” with Barbara Gladstone Gallery in New York and Bruno Bischofberger in Switzerland. Roi currently lives and works in New York.
Concurrent with the lobby exhibition, Ella Yang of Ella Yang Studio will be exhibiting a dozen paintings in the PBX Gallery at NU Hotel. Entitled “Verdant Oasis – My Brooklyn Botanic Garden”, all of the paintings included were inspired by an incredible urban collection of plants and thematic gardens. Over half of them were painted “en plein air” – on-site at specific garden areas, such as the Native Flora Garden, Water Garden and Cranston Rose Garden.
