Joe Sola will paint six paintings inside Tif Sigrid's ear canal gap.

Artist Joe Sola will exhibit his microscopic paintings inside of gallerist Tif Sigfrids’ ear, placing the six tiny oil portraits in her ear canal gap while seated at a desk in the middle of an empty space.“Portraits: An Exhibition in Tif Sigfrids' Ear” places the focus on the gallerist, namely that visitors should (metaphorically) look inside the mind of the gallerist in order to see the art.

Sola is known for his atypical approach to his profession. In 2005 his Studio Visit project saw him jump out of a second-story studio unexpectedly during a meeting, only to gage the audience’s reactions, thus creating on-the-spot art.
