Lilac Gallery New York is currently presenting “Gowanus: Off the Water’s Surface,” a solo exhibition of photographs by Steven Hirsch.

Abstract and psychedelic work on view captured by the artist's lens at the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, one of America’s most polluted waterways. Hirsch, born in Brooklyn, New York, is known for his many projects depicting the fringe, reveals in this work such hints of Impressionistic hue and texture.

Steven Hirsch, in his exploration of the industrial wasteland, finds a saturated palette of golds, deep purples, gleaming silvers, ebony blacks, phalto blues, and intense pinks. And within the intangible worlds depicted, arise visions of figures, faces and bodies, and natural forms like waterfalls, landscapes, glaciers, and galaxies.
