Off the Beaten Path: 6 Shows to See in Downtown Manhattan

Annabel Keenan, Testudo, 21 October 2022
For Into the Fold, her first solo show with Massey Klein, Kathryn Mecca expands upon her interest in curated, luxurious images of the human figure. Zoomed in on small areas of the body–an elegant shoulder, a nonchalant slouch–Mecca strips the context from her works, allowing the viewer to fill in each well-manicured figure’s story. Painted with crisp, angular lines that resemble geometric shapes, her works appear abstract upon first glance.
