    The individual works of art in “What a World, What a World” hold together in such a seamless narrative that walking into the exhibition felt like dropping into a world ready-made.

    Saturday, February 4, 2017

    Steve DeFrank is a painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He unapologetically embraces all the formal skills of object making that engages old-fashioned, soul-baring individuality with absurdity, acknowledging the pleasure, pain, and awkwardness of being human.

    An Interview with Janet Goleas – Christopher French creates minimalist abstractions infused with memory, light and a degree of perception that extends beyond sight. His radiant geometries reference a landscape of light and shadows in precise compositions. Layering pigment in thin veils, French crisscrosses shafts of color as they traverse the image field in crystalline tonalities.
