So as stated in my previous blog, you would be in for a treat… Here I present to you an exhibition I was invited to attend by ‘Dan Colen’ named ‘Sweet Liberty’ at ‘Newport Street Gallery’.
For those of you who don’t know who Dan Colen is, he is an American artist. Those who are really fascinated by art and based in New York or even New Jersey may be even more aware of him, as he grew up in Leonia. However, he is based in New York but exhibitions his art around the world for all of us to see his creative, painted images, sculptures and at times installations of his paint work, especially within London.
His talent with paint in my opinion is epic and always for seen as bright and colourful… For example, his artistry within ‘Gasosian’ – ‘Let’s Have War’, do google the image and you will see beautiful paintings of flowers he has created on bleached Belgian linen. However, to others they may not see it as flowers just messy art. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Anyway, back to ‘Sweet Liberty’.
Dan Colen has gone beyond to create large installations, from my photographs these are based on American subcultures of individualism with crafts, technology and transformed powers of art using materials and so I shall not divulge any further within my blog post. Instead I shall make you see my photography from the exhibition for your own eyes.
