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.
