Another Findysz Opening

...as if John Findysz hasn't had enough openings in this town...


This Saturday, April 24
620 1/2 Warren St, 2nd floor
6-8 pm

Here's the press release:

*************************************

The Waiting is over. Standing, a show of works by multi-media artist John Findysz, is a break-out event. The painter brings his explosive abilities to bear on both original and appropriated images. The results are startling and mysterious. Figures about to speak or move forward are married to violent, evocative, bold, delicate, sexy, careless, calculated, and subtle paint application. The act of painting itself overlays each identifiable image, and reveals a careful commingling of the representational with the abstract. Fashionable and pretty boys, aliens, athletes, and figures without faces are treated as substrates, or subjugated to theoretical musings. Findysz’ art explores the complex interval between the thought of action and action itself, and the interstices between image and expression, thus visually describing what cannot be seen. The works in Standing underscore art as a shamanistic enterprise.

************************************

Do you want me to translate it for you?

Blah, blah, blah, PRETTY BOYS, blah, blah, blah, ATHLETES, blah, blah, blah, FREE WINE.

What? You didn't see the words "free wine" in the press release?

That's because FREE WINE is the "subtext" for all these art openings!

You can call yourself an art critic, but I know you're a cheap-ass alcoholic looking for your next (free) fix.

Hey, I'll be there!

See ya,
Trix
