Losing Our Figures: Abstract Opening In The Lower East Side

 

artiholics-cojo-lesalondartNew York City – Tuesday, November 19, 2013

On the heels of my showing last month in Bushwick I was invited to have a solo show at Le Salon d’Art in the Lower East Side for a show I titled Losing Our Figures A line artist’s journey into abstraction.  After a few weeks of intensive painting and drawing I pulled together a solid body of abstract works on paper and a few new works on canvas which were to be the start of a series I am currently working on of the visualization of synapses firing (the visualization of what it looks like to have ideas pop to life).  IMG_3078

With very little time to promote the opening I managed to design postcards, send out facebook and email invites, and round up my creative friends for wine, socializing, and small talk surrounded by some of my new abstract work, as well as some pieces representing my more cartoonish figurative work.  IMG_3208

Half of the gallery was more cartoonish and the other half abstract.  I tried to make an interesting mix of fully rendered, fully colored pieces, and minimalistic black & white and monochromatic.  The following photos were taken by Reginald Thomas from Cryfoto.  (I also took pictures of the reception myself and am simultaneously posting them in a separate article on ArtSucks.com- READ.)
