Artist Adria Sartore Not the Least Bit Worried About Grass Stains

Adria Sartore’s unimpressed redhead, Flora 9, looks like she’s just landed, but we’re not sure from where or when. She could be a discarded muse thrown from a nineteenth-century portal by Renoir’s equally non-amused wife. Or a wayward Cylon ejected from the base ship for some petty crime like, say, the love of a human. Someone has not done her right. She hangs amid a group show of portraits at Eleven Rivington through Friday.
