Oh Henry! an exhibition of new works by Nicholas Kashian will be opening reception Thursday, May 19th from 6 to 8pm at Dead Project Gallery. This is the first solo exhibition in New York and with the Gallery. Kashian will be presenting current paintings and collages made in Berlin where he has relocated from Chicago since 2009.
With this exhibition, Kashian takes you to into a visual experience of being in front of a real situation all the while being confused about what is taking place on the canvas. He challenges the viewer to follow our senses instead of our cognitive instinct. The imagery is diffused, the gestures of lines, brush strokes and shapes are random and unrecognizable. However, the use of color, shapes, lines and surfaces make us feel comfortable enough that we want to scrutinize every area of the composition.
