Central Park in a No Vex Cave

“The Wall” and Andrew Kuo “You Say Tomato” at Marlborough Chelsea
April 4 – May 4
Opening: April 4, 6-8PM
545 West 25th Street
The Wall brings together a group of works that acknowledge and contend directly with the conventions of gallery architecture by breaching, puncturing, picturing, mapping and sculpting from the uprights of the near-sacred and truly ubiquitous white cube.  This group exhibition features work by: Sebastian Black, David Brooks, Ara Dymond, Sam Falls, Brendan Lynch, Anna Plesset, Davina Semo, and Clive Smith.

Also opening at the gallery is Andrew Kuo’s show “You Say Tomato,” featuring a new group of chart paintings that look calculated and cold, but actually draw from a self-reflective, emotional, and hyper-aware place.

Zach Harris: “Central Park in a No Vex Cave” at Zach Feuer
April 4 – May 4
Opening: April 4, 6-8PM
548 West 22nd Street
In his latest body of work, Harris continues to experiment with new configurations that explore aesthetic issues such as periphery, illusion, scale, mathematics and color theory.  Harris values the act of painting for its exploratory and responsive quality, using it to render visionary worlds that function as a counterpoint to the actual relief carving that surrounds them.

Kenny Scharf: “Kolors” at Paul Kasmin Gallery
April 4 – May 4, 2013
Opening: April 4, 6-8PM
515 West 27th Street
Ten new paintings and three large-scale sculptures make up this show that takes inspiration from Color Field masterworks. The never before seen sculptures are of a few classic-Scharf characters, while the new paintings seem to look more to the future, rather than the past, with scenes of biomorphic, cosmic-dwelling, cartoon forms.

Conical Intersect


Nabil Nahas at Sperone Westwater
April 5 – 4 May, 2013
Opening: April 5, 6-8PM
257 Bowery
Nahas will show a new group of paintings that explore “process and perception.” Using very thick layers of bright paint mixed with pumice, these new works continue the artist’s three-dimensional painting style and add in new elements of exuberant lines, swirls, and organism-like forms that add a whole new level of energy.
