Anagnorisis Picks | February

Anagnorisis Picks  |  February

Yikes – it’s almost February.  What happened to the first month of 2011?!  Lots of snow and cold is what happened.   Please don’t hide away in your homes during this weather – come out to see art!

Besides our own opening reception for James Moore’s Rebirth Control on Friday, February 4th at the White Rabbit, there are a couple notable shows you should most definitely attend.  I’ve already recently posted about Bill Viola at the newly renovated Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, and the closing party in Philly this Saturday with artists Jeremy Hush, Paul Romano and Mike Wohlberg at Masthead Gallery, but you also shouldn’t miss these two:

Robin Williams | Rescue Party | P.P.O.W.

Cabbage Patch  |  2010, oil on linen, 44 x 72 inches

I love the dreamy quality of Robin Williams’ works.  His paintings remind me that I should relax: summer will eventually return.

This exhibit will be up from January 27 – February 26, with a reception on February 3, 6-8pm.  P.P.O.W. has apparently moved again (?) and is now located at 535 West 22nd Street, 3rd floor.

Ray Caesar  |  A Gentle Kind of Cruelty |  Jonathan Levine

Calamity | digital media on panel (UltraChrome print on Epson Luster paper, mounted on Dibond) 40 x 60 inches

If you missed the opening, you can still catch this exhibition of Caesar’s work which will be on view until February 19th.  Caesar’s use of lighting and color, mixed with a Rococo spirit, are a feast for the eyes.  Almost belying that spirit is the digital medium Caesar employs to explore reoccurring themes of, “fantasy, escapism, human cruelty and disguise…”

Jonathan Levine Gallery is located at 529 West 20th Street, 9th floor.
