FLASHBOOM

Amoebas is an original light installation created by FLASHBOOM for the performance space Friends and Lovers (641 Classon Ave. in Crown Heights, Brooklyn). FLASHBOOM is Sabrina Braswell and Andy Miccolis, whose tagline reads simply: “We create things of light and sound.” They are part of a growing trend in lighting design that blends experimental stagecraft to the...

WARREN PARKER

Warren Parker‘s work is deceptively modern. He makes watercolors of ballet dancers, bullfighters, and women of the night, lounging in opulent bedrooms. There is a 19th century vibe to all of it, including Parker’s own self-portraits.

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...
