I stumbled into a small gallery down below Canal street last night that has some beautiful paintings in it. The piece above was my favorite and large (4x5) with the most luminous glowing color and abstract branches. There was a lot of work on the wall, much of it as lovely as this one, all varying in scale and price. The gallery is worth a visit before this show comes down at the end of the month. Alex Schuchard is the artist and the owner of the gallery. He just opened in May. This show of his work will be replaced by a group show that he is mounting in July. More of his work can be seen here - //spacebgallery.tumblr.com.
