Armory Week ’14: Armory Art Fair (Part 2)

One of the unique aspect of the Armory Art Show during  Armory Week is the fact that it’s spread out over two piers (92 & 94) on the west side of Manhattan Island with each pier themed differently. Pier 92 housed classic works from the Modern art period. Art from the history books were on display in this focused section of the fair, while the pier 94 housed works from the current contemporary era showing alongside a newly debuted Focus: China area where select gallerists from the […]

Studio Visits: Michael Kagan – “Thunder in the Distance” @ Joshua Liner

Known for painting with oils, Kagan employs an impasto technique which utilizes thick and deliberate strokes. From upclose, the paintings seem to be almost coming apart, but take a few steps back and it appears to re-form tightly into a […]

Videos: Judith Supine Scales the Queensboro Bridge

We just received this exclusive video from Judith Supine‘s camp, showing some behind the scene action that took place the other night in NYC. As street art lovers already know, Supine has been known to put extra effort to place his public work in some of the most unusual places reachable. So, following his stunt from 2007, when he installed one of his pieces on Manhattan Bridge, the other night he climbed the Queensboro bridge in order to display one of his collages from the Golden Child […]
