Marc Straus’s infamous 3-floor gallery on a Sunday evening launched the showcase of 3 intriguing artists; namely, Jong Oh, Florian Schmidt and Chris Jones, whose precise minimal abstractions employed vinyl acrylic, canvas, wood, cardboard, Plexiglas, thread, chain and metal rods.
Chris Jones’ solo exhibit on the second floor truly struck me, as did his words. Using magazine, book images, […]

AF: Thanks for taking your time to talk to AF. Can you talk about your background in the arts?
EDB: I’ve been painting since I was a child. Using text and lyrics in my work dates back to when I was a pre-teen, though my current word blocks did not come into existence until 2005. […]
My friend Ekaterina Lishmanova brought the work of Gregory Hayes to my attention and I wanted to pass this work on through Arte Fuse so that it can have a similar effect on you that it had on her (and me). Indeed, I would encourage you to drop by the gallery in person to see and […]
