Walked Through Chelsea
Hoping to see some exciting new work, and I was in luck! A wide array of paintings, photographs, and sculptures captivated me.
Trudy Benson: Actual/Virtual at Mike Weiss Gallery
included brightly colored, dense, and textured paintings. This is definitely a must see
Olaf Breuning’s life size photographs of "Art Freaks"
at Metro Pictures
: Now on view at Mary Boone
, displaying his absolutely stunning “Soundsuits” made of objects such as; rainbow dyed hair, woven rubs, and jewels. They’re really quite bizarre!
Grotesque, yet beautifully executed paintings by Aaron Johnson
can be seen at STUX
Lastly, a large yet intricate sculpture of a dollhouse by Do Ho Suh
at Lehmann Maupin
