Lorenzo Bueno’s first solo show in NYC, “Pointless,” is an architectural proposal to Boston Properties, the property owners and managers of the former Citicorp Center. The project calls for Boston Properties to construct a scale replica of the building and install it upended on the original structure. The matching angled roofs are to cleat onto each other and suspend the copy atop the original.Read More

Dylan Kraus is an artist who I can always have a passionate and genuine discussion with about nature. He is someone who I’ll walk away from thinking, “Wow, I love art so much.” Kraus’ passion for art is contagious and it is evident in his latest body of work, entitled: Night Light, a show of small paintings, depicting scenes from nature. He is able to translate the complex, yet simple feelings that come with surrounding oneself in nature; and in doing so, finds the quiet within.Read More
Opening Saturday night at Entrance in the Lower East Side is Night Light, a show of paintings by the New York-based multi-hyphenate artist Dylan Kraus. New York by way of Ohio, Kraus is an outlier of the highest order: a psychedelic shaman with a stick 'n' poke flash sheet; a Rorschach inkblot that looks like Alfred E. Newman; Fragonard on extra-strength Blue Dream. Sure, it’s a downtown art opening on a weekend, so you can fully expect “emperor’s new clothiers” to be out in droves—but you’re not going to an art show for the people... are you? Either way, you’re likely to meet a lot of characters in New York, but you're not gonna meet anyone who doesn't believe in Dylan.Read More
If you're feeling like a freak in need of some tripped out camaraderie, look no further than the self-woven universe of New York-based multi-media artist Claire Christerson. Evocative of early film pioneer Georges Méliès, her surrealist, vaudevillian tableaus are charming and wonderfully imaginative. Shoddy after-effects animation turns Christerson's models into doll-like mannequins, D.I.Y. props and backdrops shimmer with glitter, face paint is liberally applied and voices are pitched to helium-inhaled highs. The resulting effect is that weird, cool, punk-ish attitude reminiscent of Ryan Trecartin but much sweeter and less net-arty. Christerson's work has been featured on Dazed Digital, I-D Magazine, Purple, Artnet and Vice. She has also shown at Miami Art Basel, New Museum and Image Gallery. Her upcoming show titled "Daisy Chain Heart Ecology" opens at the new Entrance (48 Ludlow Street) on September 9th. According to the press release, the show is set to be the artists "most comprehensive and personal exhibition to date."Read More
