Streets: Isaac Cordal (New York)

Last month, Isaac Cordal was invited to participate in the Residency at Vyt (Art Students League of New York) for a month. While there, the Spanish artist continued his series of Cement Eclipses works by creating more sculptures for placement on the streets. Scattered around New York City, the urban interventions are metaphors that reflect on politics, bureaucracy, and power – something to think about during the holidays. Discuss Isaac Cordal here.

Openings: Erik Parker – “Undertow” @ Paul Kasmin Gallery

A couple weeks ago, the 297 Tenth Avenue location of Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York hosted the opening reception for Undertow, Erik Parker’s new solo show. Drawing from a wide range of influences, the locally-based artist arranges these elements into complex compositions that become greater than the sum of its parts. The highly saturated palette as well as shaped canvases further accent his imagery, a commentary on the “world’s current political, social, and economic landscapes.” Discuss Erik Parker here.
