3rd Street Gallery on 2nd St announces an exhibition of new work by Philadelphia based painter, Kathleen Rose Geiger.

Squares, a series of paintings in square format, is the artist’s first series of paintings after a departure from figuration. The exhibition is comprised of still lifes based on iPhone photos and inspired by Instagram. Through cropped and skewed imagery, these paintings seek to investigate how the use of social media and technology influences our visual language. Pop art and printed imagery are featured heavily in the work. By photographing, painting, printing, and now, “posting” the same image over and over, the artist highlights how these images are recycled both digitally and by hand.
