    We're All in Here by Halley Zien at BravinLee ProgramsIn Halley Zien’s current work at BravinLee programs, she uses a combination of collage and painting to create small spaces, packed with people, where the presence of others only seems to engender conflict and psychological discomfort.

    What is an artist without his muse? Can there be a wellspring to create art if there is no source of inspiration? Is beauty subject to a certain aesthetic or will it translate with a seismic shift of emotion? These are the questions that come to mind and at the latest solo exhibition…

    Amazing Social Satire: Future Tense by Alex Gross at Jonathan LeVine GalleryWhat if Abbie Hoffman had been cryogenically frozen after his suicide in 1989 and was then brought back to life again now?  I’m pretty sure this icon of counter-culture idealism and integrity would simply kill himself again, and Alex Gross’ amazingly engaging and sardonic paintings at Jonathan LeVine Gallery would help explain why.  Branding seems to be the focus in this show and branding has…

    Twisted Figures by Ian Hughes at 532 Gallery Thomas JaeckelA Dada-inspired artist, Johannes Baader, once ran into a church in Germany and yelled: “Jesus is a sausage!”  I am still trying to absorb this koan-like adage, but perhaps the work of Ian Hughes sheds light on what exactly a ‘Jesus sausage’ might look like.  Indeed, we may all be Jesus sausages (or have the capacity to attain to Jesus sausageness) without even knowing it.
