“Local artist and writer Sarah Hotchkiss partakes in a certain kind of Sunday ritual with Alemany Flea Market as the peculiar site of worship. Bins of dusty board games are picked through, in pursuit of some of the stranger moments in the discipline’s history. Game boards and other visual ephemera are carefully selected to be rendered through gouache paintings that are as painstaking as they are vibrant. Garish and optically charged, Hotchkiss’ board game paintings praise the great aesthetic value in an overlooked entertainment tradition, appropriating and shining new light on a canon that we hardly knew existed.” (Press release)
