‘Fruit Vendor’ by Ryan Flores @ Moskowitz Bayse

Posted on November 26th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Ryan Flores presents us a quintessential idea of cornucopia with his Fruit Vendor opening at Moskowitz Bayse. The ceramic media plays with the idea of vegetation, and the kind which nourishes the body with vitamin richness. This richness is demonstrated with the playfulness of the colors the artist can bring out, as well as […]

‘Arrangements’ by Tony Matelli @ Nino Mier Gallery

Posted on November 19th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Meanwhile, at Nino Meir, we have a similar sculptural exertion in the botanical, this time as a remedy of doldrum vanity in Mr. Tony Matelli’s Arrangements. For what else is floral décor but a means of imbuing a vacuous space with vacuole splendor? And yet, does plant life display a means or an ends? Shouldn’t […]

In Your Arms I’m Radiant 1: Rakuko Naito & Tadaaki Kuwayama @ Shoshana Wayne Gallery

Posted on November 6th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

In the discourse on solids in the arts, we have a splendid demonstration of elegance, grace, and nature in the works of Ms. Rakuko Naito @ Shoshana Wayne Gallery. Juxtaposed to her ensemble of cosmically-woven textured papers, Mr. Tadaaki Kuwayama has positioned his artwork toward a serious meditation on the idea of space. The totality […]

‘Long Distance’ by Martin Boyce @ Tanya Bonakdar Gallery

Posted on October 29th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Long Distance by Martin Boyce invites us to appreciate an industrial elegance with the media he employs in most of his exhibition pieces at Tanya Bonadkar Gallery. The sense of brutal with metal, due to its hardness in form, is alleviated by a sense of delicate appearance in the telephone communication device consistently presented in […]

‘Ripple Effect’ By Dan Lam & Jan Kalab @ Hashimoto Contemporary

Posted on October 21st, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Ms. Dan Lam and Mr. Jan Kaláb present to us a healthy medley of scintillating sculpture and canvas with a preciously meticulous treatment of color in their dual opening at Hashimoto Contemporary. The reflectances, specifically from Ms. Lam’s waxy-fun, provides an interesting juxtaposition to the austerely planar yet nonetheless curvilinear treatment of colors by Mr. […]

Jeff Hirst @ Addington Gallery

Posted on October 7th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Jeff Hirst presents us with a meditation on certainty in his staunchly thickly-wooded compositions at Addington Gallery. His examinations on the essence of structure gives us tremendous elasticity in the idea, from the gradients of paint thickness to the boisterousness of certain shapes in the composition. Yet it is from this thought of boisterous […]

‘Through a Different Lens’ by Neil Goodman @ Carl Hammer Gallery

Posted on October 4th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

The daring simplicity of Mr. Neil Goodman at Carl Hammer Gallery informing the perceiver with transcendental forms which provide substance to balance in achieving the idea of solid is a profound truth to the world-idea of the visible form and its necessity in achieving naturally healthy perceptions of the world, or an ideal correspondence to […]

‘Desert Sanctum’ by Debbie MacCafee @ Craig Krull Gallery

Posted on September 25th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Debbie MacAfee’s artwork represents a beautiful idea of nativity in the media she has created and is now exhibiting at Craig Krull Gallery. The discernable airiness in the thinness of the material, and harmoniously earthy color tones, gives us the impression of lightness, of a natural goodness which is far removed from anxieties of possession. […]

‘The Case for Beauty’ by Alex Weinstein @ Leslie Sacks Gallery

Posted on September 16th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Mr. Alex Weinstein provides a triumphant exhibition of rapturous Natural forms which extend into the appropriately fantastic with his Case for Beauty art opening at Leslie Sacks Gallery. His sagacity is in providing us with a florid of imaginative color to imbue our senses with something more than than an ocean-time memory, but one of […]

The Oracle w/ Eran Barnea @ TAG Gallery

Posted on September 9th, 2022 by Joseph A. Hazani

Eran Barnea presents us a confrontation of vanity in his welcomed exhibition as part of the Fall Reception at TAG Gallery. His aim at representing, though certainly in a mischievous manner, the haloed self-gratification of personalities creating their own electromagnetic vortices of grandeur, requires one to openly examine the health of such a now normative […]
