WHAT'S UP IN NEW YORK CITY ART, MUSIC, & FASHION
CULT EDITOR'S TOP EVENTS TO HIT THIS WEEK
ART EXHIBITION: DAVID SALLE - NEW PAINTINGS
NOW - JUNE 27th at Skarstedt Gallery, 550 W 21st St, New York, NY 10011
Skarstedt is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by American artist David Salle at their Chelsea gallery this April. The exhibition will feature all new work from two recent series: the Late Product Paintings and the Silver Paintings.
The exhibition as a whole extends the idea of juxtaposition even further: one group of pictures is intensely colorful, extremely various, and organized along complex diagonal rhythms; the other is restricted to black and white, with a single subject, and composed along a vertical/horizontal axis. And yet, the two series have a clear reciprocity and point of intersection; together they seem to mirror each other with an oscillating sense of place.
