JIM D’AMATO

JOHN O’CONNOR

I’ll just say it right out: John O’Connor is one of my favorite contemporary artists in New York. I haven’t had too many chances to write about his work yet, but hopefully that will change soon. Getting to the point, O’Connor has a few new works in a group show in Soho that opens this Thursday...
