Soft Signs Opening - The Gallery at W83
Through January 05, 2020 - New York

Soft Signs by Anna-Sophia Vukovic. In Anna-Sophia Vukovich's paintings and drawings, arrows and markers serve as external wayfinders but also point towards our own internal navigation. Using colors, abstract shapes and shifts of scale, Vukovich conjures a sense of space and invites us to consider the physical places and spiritual spaces we inhabit, how we got there, and where we're going.
