1. In his new body of work, Joseph Staples’ focus has changed to where the image has become less important than the line made by cutting. With the image gone, the trace remains of process are what have become significant at Leo Koo Gallery
2. Lucy Mink’s work is an abstract diary that illustrates how she is consumed daily by combinations of color and form.at Fred Giampietro Gallery
3. This new series of pieces addresses the concept of a false beginning, with the paintings’ support envisioned as faux sculpture at Gregory Lind Gallery
4. By delving into the paradox of realism via the use of linear one-point perspective to derive micro/macro observational representations of the universe, there is the credible sense that Pedro Barbeito is exhibiting palpable and computational realizations of space, time, and matter at 101/exhibit
5. Gerald Collings breaks down the Renaissance ideal of the perfect representation of human figures and landscape through mathematical knowledge and puts it through a blender at Envoy Enterprises
6. Having always been attracted to painting and drawing, Emilio Perez’s unique practice is a back and forth conversation between the two mediums at Galerie Lelong
