Michael Angel HOME

GOBBI FINE ART is pleased to present HOME, a solo-exhibition of paintings by Australian-born artist Michael Angel which will be on view January 9th – 14th at 195 Chrystie Street. A reception for the artist will be held on Thursday, January 11th from 6-9pm.

In a series of eight new paintings, Michael Angel explores domesticity through portraits that were primarily inspired from photographs dating back to his youth. Although far from the total abstraction of some of his earlier works, the canvas scraping of his palette knife technique is still present and serves here to obscure and distort in order to distance the figures and unsettle a narrative of comforting home life.

On View: January 9-14, 2018
Artist Reception: January 11th, 6pm-9pm
195 Chrystie St, New York, NY 10002
Gallery Hours: Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-6pm
