AM recently took a visit into Bedstuy’s Brooklynite Gallery to hang out and see their latest show “Surface Tension”. The exhibition comprised of works from two artists whose works seemingly take different directions. David Walker’s brighter palates and literal/photo-realistic portraits are created without a single brushstroke; in fact, only spray paint is used. The faces seemed to come together between the metallic and bright hues.
On the other side of the coin we also enjoyed Guy Denning’s darker and deeper figurative painting. Utilizing oil and turpentine, then blasting with a fire hose, Guy scrapes character into each piece. This show was definitely something that needs to be enjoyed in person. (Especially the awesome mural in the outdoor gallery.) If you’re in NY it should be one of your stops as it runs until July 10th.
