‘Watching The Sky, Waiting For Signs’
 By Emily Church

After 21 years and five solo exhibitions, Emily Church and Galerie Hertz are still going strong as a team. Her latest body of work, now on display, focuses on the sky. While some of the paintings are from her travels, most of the abstracted paintings are what Church saw from her Brooklyn windows from September 2017 to May 2018. “As landscapes I’ve known in my lifetime are altered due to climate change,” she said, “these paintings are my attempt to bear witness to the passing seasons, ephemeral light, weather as it mercilessly engulfs, so that I might say later, ‘I once knew these landscapes to be real.’”
