CHRISTINA RAY is pleased to continue its summer group show series with an exhibition of new work by New York-based artists Brian Leo and Don Porcella. In an installation of paintings and sculpture, the artists take on contemporary culture with humor and post-ironic wit. The exhibition opens on July 7th and runs through July 31st. A reception will be held on Thursday, July 7th, 7–9pm at CHRISTINA RAY, located at 30 Grand Street in New York, NY.
Leo and Porcella share an interest in locating their subjective realities within the larger contemporary experience. News stories of pop culture and political scandal mingle with artistic imagination to create scenes ranging from Porcella’s alien visitations and disembodied creatures to Leo’s environmental disasters and animals with iPads. Leo presents new works on canvas and Porcella – exhibiting with the gallery for the first time – offers encaustic works on panels and sculptures created with colorful pipe cleaners.
