Collaborative creativity and biogenetic cells turned art signal a new horizon for art in Chelsea. AF visited one of the galleries bent on pushing that very tenet of new and something different for all to enjoy. “Abiogenesis” by Sarah Doherty Heinrichs blew the lid off everyday molecules and its awesome power to replicate or group themselves into cells. Her paintings are windows to a microscopic world to celebrate the beauty and infinite power of these miniscule building blocks of life. On the other side of this gallery’s universe are the multiple panels of surrealistic whimsy by the collaboration between Linda Storm and Pablo Perea for “Two Views, One Vision” as part of Summer Highlights II. Their works are clever derivatives of Salvador Dali, Marcel Duchamp, and Rene Magritte. Each panel is a portal to their view of humanity and what it means to them as artists. It most certainly has opened a new window on the horizon indeed for this century in art. Now don’t get caught sleeping the century away and get off your butt to see some art!
