NY Art

"Untitled" by Tara McPherson
Tara McPherson is an NYC-based artist. I'd go into more detail, but her website sums it up pretty well: "She has created numerous gig posters for rock bands such as Beck, Modest Mouse, and Melvins. Her array of art also includes creating toys with companies like Kidrobot, Dark Horse, and Toy2R, painted comics and covers for DC Vertigo, advertising and editorial illustrations for companies such as Wyde and Spin Magazine, and teaching a class at Parsons in NYC." Personally, I just love that she uses a lot of redheads in her art.

"Untitled Sculpture #4" by Matt Wycoff
Matt Wycoff is a Brooklyn artist (woo Brooklyn!) whose work is currently on display at Hogar Collection in Williamsburg April 17-May 18. As L Magazine puts it, "He engages a playful dialog with American minimalism, updating its claims of pure formalism with tilted, lop-sided and propped-up structures." F*ck symmetry.

and we're back!

So I've been gone for a while. Sorry about that. For those of you who don't know already, I've been living in NYC since mid-January! Unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to check out art shows--a problem that I will remedy starting this weekend.

Quick rundown: I lived on the Lower East Side in Manhattan for two months then moved to Bushwick in Brooklyn. I work for a non-profit in Harlem. I graduate with my Master of Public Health (MPH) degree last weekend. I am currently looking for a full time job in the public health field. I'll move pretty much anywhere.

That's it. Artsy updates to come.
