On Thursday, Evan Hecox made his return to Joshua Liner Gallery for his second solo exhibition. Entitled Dark Island, Hecox focuses his new body of work on New York and its renowned five boroughs. With a diverse range of mediums being explored for this show Рfrom works on vintage New York Times from the 1800s to his detailed canvased works Рthe Denver-based artist made it a point to exercise his detailed style and incorporate site specific inspirations from the Big Apple. We especially noted the text-based slant that he brought to the forefront of this show. It was interesting to see him explore various fonts to give the audience a flavor of the specific borough and/or neighborhood.
