Contemporary Art: Density, Saturation & Energy @ Galerie Richard, New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York City is a global magnet for people, capital and art. No wonder that international galleries want to be present here. Galerie Richard, an ambitious French art dealer, is one of them. They chose New York`s trendy Lower East Side (121 Orchard Street galerierichard ).

I have seen already a row of interesting exhibitions there. Now they display abstracts by the New York based artist Jordan Broadworth. The exhibition is called "Terra Incognita" (through August 28, 2016).

Broadworth`s "paintings convey the density, saturation and energy that one can only experience when living and working in New York City", claims the press release.

The press release further explains: the artist  "constructs his paintings with a tight pixel-like grid. The grid accompanied by a screen-like smoothness and back-lit glow positions the work within a our time of digital distraction. These works are created working “wet into wet” within tight parameters of production that include working blind, opening the work to spontaneity and chance" (presse).

But let the pictures speak for themselves
