Last week, Amsterdam-based artist Chris Berens made his New York debut with a brilliant solo show at Sloan Fine Art. Chris has been working hard on this show and came through with 39 detailed pieces to show for his efforts. As mentioned in our previews (here & here), Chris utilizes a mixed technique blending his heritage of studying the “old masters” with his unique brushstrokes on photographic paper to create a dream like effect. This beautiful hazy effect is something that is further illuminated by seeing his art in person. Many well known peers of Chris was on hand to catch the opening – Eric White (interviewed), Joe Sorren, Travis Louie (interviewed) and Kirsten Anderson (Roq La Rue) to name a few.
