The Carlton Arms Hotel is pleased to present ‘Ghosts’, a solo exhibition of paintings by Helen Oliver Adelson. ‘Ghosts’ consists of a selected group of recent works that examine the artist’s exchange of energy with her subjects and depicts the tension between presence and absence in her portraiture and architectural landscapes. Her paintings are as much about the figures and places they portray as they are about the negative space, the void surrounding them. HOA’s landscapes are places looking back at us whilst her portraits express a person’s inner landscape, questioning what’s behind the mask/facade.
Carlton Arms is a unique, independently run art hotel in the heart of Manhattan. In over 35 years the hotel hosted nearly 200 artists in its residency program. All rooms, bathrooms, walls are covered in murals.
