"The way Vittoria Benzine eloquently described my work made me feel as though she had been with me throughout my life in art. She accurately portrayed my style and influences, and brought out a sense of distinction to my process that normally is hard for me to explain. She definitely impressed me and made me feel like I'm much closer now to describing my work, and to be able to expand into the next level of my career."  CZR PRZ, Chicago-based muralist and Partner/Creative Lead at Ava Grey Creative Agency & Production House

Kerry Irvine: Shifting Spaces

Kerry Irvine, The Bullfighter and Ballerina, 2020. Oil and mixed media on paper, 50 x 84 in. Kerry Irvine’s paintings beg to be plucked and savored straight from the bough. The New York City-based abstract expressionist seduces her classically discordant style into something juicy, scintillating and luscious.

Future Novel, Jack Mernin’s debut NYC solo show at Trotter&Sholer

The first time I walked into Future Novel, Jack Mernin’s debut NYC solo show at Trotter&Sholer, a flash of color caught my eye and set my stomach on a freefall. The red and brown hues provoking my sickness didn’t come from a canvas, but the cover of a book. For this show, Trotter&Sholer partnered with Book Club Bar “to bring viewers into conversation with Mernin,” according to a press release. Several works of literature sat stacked at the gallerists’s desk, each one an inspiration to the artist

Trotter & Sholer’s LES Debut – Anak Dara: A Solo Show by Azzah Sultan

The new normal looks nothing like I thought it would. A disparity which makes me realize how impossible it is to predict anything. Suddenly I’m acutely aware of my own mortality, a sensation akin to the first time I realized adults were people too. The new normal looks nothing like I thought it would, but it exists without a doubt, and it has an excitement of its own, as society cobbles together a path through the COVID-19 pandemic. New leadership has started to take shape, driven by forces for

Iris Scott’s The Big Wonderful

For the past six months, renowned finger painting maestro Iris Scott has been working in a quaint shack outside of a little town called Coyote, New Mexico. In New York City, Scott established a strong reputation among critics like Jerry Saltz and Anthony Haden-Guest — as well as a significant social media following — for her dizzying use of color in painting scenes of startling intricacy using only her be-gloved hands. Now, near Coyote, once proclaimed “the toughest town in the West” by The Chic
