This week’s choice gallery picks look at human nature and the divine with a playful hand.
* * *
1. Sarah Coleman’s most recent work addresses Illusion while delving into society’s obsession with screen time and mobile devices. With layers of mirrors and glass, she creates three dimensional paintings that use the mirror’s reflection to mimic an internal, back-lit, light source – the screen at George Billis Gallery
2. Merrill Steiger’s compound pictures celebrate our spirituality and our urge to give that spirituality a concrete form, paying homage to their process with her meta-pictures at Walter Wickiser Gallery
3. Dylan Egon’s American Holy Relics at Jonathan Levine Gallery
4. Michael Kagan paints man-made objects and machinery – a rocket, a racecar, a spacesuit, the cockpit of a space shuttle – in this exploration of humankind’s ability to achieve something outside of their physical means at Joshua Liner Gallery
5. An exhibit of photographs, paintings, and mixed media, capturing the modern and classic world of games, including card games, board games, video games, mind games, erotic games at bG Gallery
6. Dan Hernandez’s ”Genesis 2014” references not only the biblical Book of Genesis, but also the video game console Sega Genesis that was a defining moment in pop culture, especially for those in the artist’s generation at Kim Foster Gallery
