Rachel Harrison

by Emily Nathan

New York artist Rachel Harrison anchors her current exhibition at Greene Naftali Gallery -- a selection of her signature quirky sculptures, along with some modest but outlandish drawings in color pencil -- with a single framed photograph hung on the wall. Titled The Help, it pictures a detail of a smudgy white door with a beat-up metal handle and lock. Given its modest size, unremarkable subject and neutral palette, which stand in stark contrast to the rainbow-colored parade of totemic sculptures scattered around the gallery, the photois more than easy to ignore.
