Jolie Laide Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in Philadelphia for New York-based collage artist James Gallagher. This gathering of very recent works (mostly from 2011) operates in the space between the unintentional artifacts of the studio and the deliberately cut and pasted images Gallagher’s been honing for ten years. In light of the abundance of digitally driven and overly produced images surrounding us, something about the apparent quickness in the practice, in the turnover of cut paper - to ground - to wall encouraged the curatorial posture of embracing the studio/ gallery bond. Within this initial frame, an idea of portraiture holds the selected works together in an attempt to name what Gallagher can tell us about the individual, ourselves – and everybody else.

Eileen Neff, Curator
