Logan Hicks and Beau Stanton have been working diligently for their coming two person pop up show that opens tomorrow night at the Highline Loft in New York’s Chelsea art district. Curated by Lori Zimmer & Natalie Kates, the show entitled Calm Before the Storm takes inspiration from classic nautical superstition, flood myths, historic compositions of life changing events and even references the modern issue of rising waters of the world’s waterways. Both artists have created new paintings and multiples, along with a site-specific installation of a reconstructed ship.
The show’s opening reception is October 17th from 6-9pm, but there are more events coinciding at the pop up location. On October 22nd, 1xRun will be taking over the space for a special print release event. When the show closes on October 28th, there will be a costume party for the “Sailors, Sirens and Sea Hags.” So dress up in your favorite maritime 0utfist to partake in the festivities. Check out a quick look below of the paintings to come from both Logan and Beau’s studios.
