Gifting NYC with joint solo shows along with Andy Kehoe (covered), Gary Baseman offered up a more somber and personal body of work at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery last Saturday night entitled Walking Through Walls.  Experimenting with combining his painting techniques with collage, silkscreen, and found photographs from his collection, Gary built a show that centered around the notion of “walking through walls – moving through the different divisions of society, challenging expectations, and finding freedom.” The new works also featured another common theme of […]

Preview: Sas & Colin Christian – “Sas + Colin” @ Opera Gallery (NY)

After being teased by the Nefertiti sculpture from Colin & Sas Christian (interviewed) for their upcoming show, we were hungry for more and hope you are too. The new body of work set to be unveiled on March 10th at the Opera Gallery in New York is entitled simply “Sas + Colin”, which is telling because this show was a collaborative effort from the husband and wife team. We’ll be bringing you coverage from the opening of course, but for now, take a look at […]
