Last night I went to a few gallery openings here in Chelsea. I was struck by one watercolor art installation at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. Artist, Santi Moix created collaged watercolor painting that illustrate a dark interpretation of Mark Twain’s Adentures of Huckleberry Finn.
What I personally love about the work was the Paul Kasmin Gallery’s installation. The framed paintings themselves are hung salon style and the artist chose to sketch images directly onto the walls in charcoal (floor to ceiling.) As the room fills with viewers, the illustrations smudge and smear, ghosting the images and visually creating the presence of energy and movement. Fantastic!
If you are in the NYC area, ImageThink recommends swinging by 27th Street and 10th Avenue to check out Santi Moix on Huckleberry Finn: Watercolors and Wall drawings at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. January 5th – February 11th, 2012
