Nick Baxter & Fred Harper at Last Rites Gallery
This Saturday, February 6th at 7PM, NYC's Last Rites Gallery will present two solo exhibitions: one featuring the work of breakthrough tattoo and fine artist Nick Baxter, and the other of comic art wunderkind Fred Harper.
In these exhibits, the artists will show new paintings, works that lean towards shadowy and sinister. It is Last Rites after all. Gallery Director Andrew Michael Ford offers more:
"Harper's large, loose, darkly humorous depictions of female cyborgs and the like have a sickly sweet quality that both attack and embrace the viewer at the same time. Baxter, on the other hand, works on small surfaces in tight, intricate detail, made up of wet skin, gleaming blood and sharp metal objects throughout. Although there styles are vastly different, they share the same intense desire to show the fine art world what they can do when they're not rocking their respective industries."
The show runs February 6th through February 28th, 2010 at Last Rites Gallery, 511 W. 33rd Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues (3 blocks from Penn Station), 3rd floor, New York. Saturday's opening will be from 7 to 11PM. I'll see you there.
