Most galleries at the Armory choose to show pieces from several of their represented artists. However, others go for an all-or-nothing approach by highlighting only one artist. Such was the case with Clearing, who hosted a solo booth of photographs by Brooklyn-based artist Ryan Foerster. And we were glad they did, as it gave us a chance to focus on the work of this very interesting artist. Typical of Foerster’s process, the unframed prints on display were weathered, some covered with dirt, and unceremoniously attached to the walls. The end result was a striking display of textured and vibrantly colored abstract works, which appeared more painterly than photographic.
