Gary Hume: Destroyed School Paintings

The exhibition features sixteen new paintings and five new sculptures.The paintings were inspired by news photographs of schoolrooms destroyed in recent conflicts in the Middle East.

6. STUDIO 525 NYC

HUE


HUE is a celebration of color. Each of the 5 artists included in this exhibition employ color in a way that directs the eye around the form of the work. Adam Lucas’ geometric shapes of color have direct the eye all around the works, darting back and forth. Chellis Baird’s colored lines of fabric create a more organized eye pattern, as the eye follows the darker hues created by the shadows of the works.

On View September 12 - 15
