Dan Colen: “The spirits that I called” at Oko
May 15 – June 15
Opening: May 15, 6-8PM
220 East 10th Street
Dubbed “the Miracle paintings” by the artist and inspired in part by Walt Disney’s celebrated 1940 animated film classic Fantasia, Dan Colen’s latest canvases depict non-figurative and relatively empty landscapes that quote the movie’s overwrought visual elements of magic and fantasy. These paintings are oriented around arcs of shimmering fairy dust – effects referred to by Colen as “miracles” – with trope l’oeil surfaces achieved through suspension of dry pigments in viscous paint and varnish.
