Christian Rex van Minnen’s oil on panel (seen above) is a painting created for the upcoming group show Ducks, opening on October 24th at Greenpoint Terminal Gallery. Curated by Ryan Travis Christian and featuring a very diverse type of works by over 80 artists, this show is built around this thought – “I hate how you’re just born out of nowhere, forced to go to school and get an education so you can get a job. What if I wanted to be a duck?“
