Contemporary Art: Visiting Art Galleries In Chelsea, New York, March 2015

(Drivebycuriosity) - Being a resident of New York`s Lower East Side I enjoy the ubiquitous art galleries in my neighborhood. But sometimes I go to Chelsea which has a cluster of New York´s largest and most ambitious art dealers. The other day I revisited some galleries there to see what it is new. I reported already about about the exhibition "Empire of the Senseless @ Friedman Benta (here ) and photorealistic paintings @ Stricoff Fine Art (here).

In this post I show some images from 3 more galleries:

Bertrand Delacroix Gallery ((535 West 25th Street bdgny) is catering their usual bunch of fine artists. On top of this post you can see an installation picture followed by Peter Martensen`s painting "The Surveilance" (oil on canvas) and "Style", by Francois Bard (Oil on canvas).

Above this paragraph are 2 more paintings @ Betrand Delacroix, who`s creators I cannot identify.

                                                       History Belongs To The One Telling It

The gallery Thomas Jaeckel  (532 West, 25th Street   532gallery) has an exhibition with works by Cuban artists. Above you can see "History Belongs to the One Telling it" by Duvier de Tago (2014, watercolor and ink). Did Fidel Castro father a daughter?

Does Armando Marino`s "Father and Son" (2011, Oil on canvas) refer to the nepotismus of Cuba`s leadership?

Did Reynerio Tamayo`s militaristic "Baby Carriage" (Watercolor and pencil on paper) belong to the Cuban revolution?

The Gagosian gallery empire shows at their dependency @ West 24th Street (gagosian ) sculptures and installations by John Chamberlain & Jean Prouvé. Majestic as usual.
