DARINA KARPOV

The Russian-born, Brooklyn-based Darina Karpov is another artist who exhibits at Pierogi Gallery in Williamsburg. It’s a good fit, as her paintings and drawings on paper are just the kind of dense, process-driven psychedelia that Pierogi is known for. (Her show ends today.) Karpov blends the figurative and the abstract into fantasy-like dreamscapes. Her muted tones...

FEATURE: ATI MAIER

A few months back, an unexpected text popped up on my phone. German-born artist Ati Maier invited me to her studio near the East River in Greenpoint to view a newly-finished painting—an abstract landscape titled Entre-Temps. Maier was set to leave for Munich in the morning, with plans to hand-deliver the approx. 60”x48” artwork to its patrons. When...

Grey’s...

REY-ZORRO

Rey-Zorro (nee Claudia Rey) spent the last thirty years deconstructing popular modes of communication and has now arrived at a new expression she calls “disinstallation.” At its heart, disinstallation takes cultural signifiers—advertisements, logos, superheroes—and removes them from their native context. If it sounds like Pop-Art Mach 2, the Brooklyn-based Rey gives the style a makeover that accounts for the conspiratorial...

VERS

If you’ve seen a mural by Brooklyn graffiti artist Vers, you’ll never forget it. Not only is his style easily recognizable, it also towers above most works being done on the streets today. Tagging mostly his own nom de plume, Vers bends and twists the fonts into cyberpunk shapes that evoke  the futurism of transportation and recall, at...
