Tues Noc 15th - NYC: Matthew Stone at The Hole
Matthew Stone has been consistently unveiling recent works at regular intervals in London which I have been featuring on here. So I'm dead chuffed that I was in the right place at the right time to see the culmination on a grand scale which has been planted in another city. Matthew's first show in New York has just opened at The Hole at the new premises on The Bowery which has been used to display a plethora of new pieces. I love the bright block colours integrated into his photographic prints soaked onto wood-board in addition to the pastel hues that have previously set off the flesh tone anatomical portraits. This is a must-see show for followers of the latest British movement in image makers redefining YBA art. It answers intellectual approach but serves the purpose of a beautiful object you actually wish to have on your own wall to while away time enjoying looking at and absorbing the optimism the artist is capturing and promoting.
