We recently had the pleasure of visiting the painting studios of Brooklyn based artist Michael Kagan as he was preparing for his show at Joshua Liner Gallery. As it turns out, the final product was even more pleasing than we would have hoped. Entitled Thunder in the Distance, this exhibition focused on space travel and its various key components which make this seemingly impossible task of existing (temporarily) in space possible. Using inspiring brush and paint techniques, Kagan brings to life a subject that is constantly in the imaginations of millions. A very promising showing for an artist’s first solo in the United States. Check out a detailed look below.
