A collection of alluring works depicting young Japanese girls are currently on display at a Chelsea gallery in a show titled Shinchishirin by Ai Yamaguchi. For her second solo show in New York in 12 years, Yamaguchi focuses on feminine beauty with a strong emphasis on the thick, long, silky, hair of girls and women. [...]
Biblical figures are currently being featured in the form of small, porcelain sculptures in Paradise, the latest exhibition of work by Mary Carlson. In this show, Carlson depicts a heavenly kingdom with several variations of characters such as Adam and Eve, Mary Magdalene, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Catherine of Alexandria, and also includes sculptures of [...]
The key to understanding Craig Norton‘s work at Jim Kempner Fine Art might be in answering why all these old people are so happy. Indeed, at the show my big question was how everyone my own age could be so miserable and stressed out while these older folks seemed so serene and fulfilled. And, [...]

If I am not mistaken, before the arrival of the Highline Park, there were around 300 art galleries in the Chelsea neighborhood. With the arrival of the Highline came a building boom of upscale hotels and residential units which [...]
Large, colorful paintings of legendary animals by Walton Ford are currently on view in Chelsea in a show titled Watercolors. For this show, Ford focuses on connections between human culture and the natural world, drawing upon inspiration from folklore and historical studies. One work called Rhyndacus features a 10-foot tall snake and a flock [...]
The act of self-expression inspires and motivates me. The ’action’ or the physical outpouring of one’s inner self becomes a connective force. This raw but intangible energy is what I attempt to convey onto canvas.
