Showboat Gallery is pleased to announce Silk Degrees by Dan Monick, co-founder and photographer of Masculine de La FEMME. Silk Degrees is a personal account of life in Los Angeles. The still lifes of ordinary objects, windows, sidewalks and coyotes weave together an energy that is so special to the city . Part photography, part sculptural, and part installation, Silk Degrees is the neon nights and cooked days in the city Monick calls home.
