Thursday January 10th marked the first serious art crawl of the New Year, and what better way to kick it off than with a visit to Bold Hype Gallery on West 27th Street for their new group show, Far Away, So Close. We always have a blast at Bold Hype’s shows, so this was a special treat to have so many of our favorite artists exhibiting all together! Here’s some of what we saw: Continue reading Far Away, So Close Group Show at Bold Hype Gallery
On one of the rainiest Thursday nights in recent history, Geoffrey and I got soaked to the bone splashing through ankle-deep puddles and dodging the deluge while gallery hopping from Chelsea to Soho. Urban Art Safari! One of my favorite exhibits that we were fortunate to make it to that night is Jason Limon’s Blood/Nectar, currently on view over at the Bold Hype Gallery, which is a must see for fans of surrealist painting. Jason paints in acrylics on canvas and wood panels as well, with his subjects incorporating fusions of organic matter, such as birds that have evolved to be part plant or part machine.
His paintings are really cool and remind me a lot of one of my other favorite contemporary surrealist painters, Greg “Craola” Simkins. Jason Limon is getting added to my list of cool artists to pay attention to. Check his stuff out while you can!
