  • Brian Yates: The New Anomie & Kinga Czerska: New Works
    • "Brian Yates uses old player piano rolls in his paintings and sculptures. The rolls reference a grand romantic past, but are brought sharply into the present by their manipulation into objects that look eerily like bombs or explosives. His work contains elements of the unexpected and an apprehension which resides in a wider context of the contemporary American present." "Kinga Czerska’s paintings are both beautifully made objects and complex investigations of the intricate webs of patterns that make up our structured environments. Pulling influences from architecture, engineering, and science, she uses rhythm and contrast to play with the flow of a straight line and the fluidity of usually rigid elements."
    • Kasia Kay Art Projects, 1044 W. Fulton Market
