Tabs on the floor and tabs on the wall as well as everywhere in between was the theme of the opening of Alice Hope's new show "Tab" at Ricco Maresca Jennifer Landes photos
The artist added back light to her amalgamation of tabs to create forms evocative of sea life or some strange mystical ectoplasm.
Alice Hope shows Ashton Farrington the tab tattoo before she applies it as Carol and Lee Farrington look on.

Red tabs attached to tiny metal ball chains that are attached to a box spring make for a dynamic sculpture.
