The “Watercolors“ show, curated by Kristin Sancken, Phillips de Pury featured abstract and figurative works by a diverse group of artists. It included emerging young painters like Annika Connor, Andrea Mary Marshall, and Alexis Rockman as well as such heavyweights of the art world as Eric Fischl.

The show’s breadth was impressive as it attempted to examine the perception of watercolor as a fine art medium and the issues of value (art historical, economic and aesthetic) surrounding the medium and its relationship to oils.

The exhibition was held at Phillips de Pury’s Chelsea location. Video snippet of the opening night featuring my work from the “That’s Where You Need to Be” series.

The show’s breadth is impressive as it attempts to examine the perception of watercolor as a fine art medium and the issues of value (art historical, economic and aesthetic) surrounding the medium and its relationship to oils.
