Margaret Bowland's second New York solo exhibition of psychologically provocative paintings. Bowland draws upon legendary American novelist and social critic James Baldwin's rallying cry that, "Artists are here to disturb the peace," by creating a very personal series of works which questions societal expectations about gender, race and beauty.

The majority of the works focus on JJ, Bowland's muse for the past five years. Now eleven years old and on the verge of adolescence, she prepares to face the challenges of adulthood. Upon her tiny frame, weighty universal issues are placed -- questions of identity, pressures of conformity, and ultimately a quest for acceptance.
