LOCATION: 560 WEST 24TH STREET, NEW YORK, NY 10011, USA
REFLECTION OF DREAMS
Opening Reception: JULY 10, 6-8PM
The exhibition consists of seven new large-scale and two new smaller-scale oil paintings. His provocative, hyper-realistic style together with his meticulous attention to detail create a sense of immediacy that is textured and visceral. A deeper look at his work reveals a fascination with intimacy, a kind of personal and private experience, conjured by an inflaming of the senses. His paintings, though extremely sensual, go beyond the erotic, towards an exploration of self-awareness and love, and a reinvigoration of innocence, genuine emotion and sacredness.
Mike Dargas’ solo exhibition is presented in conjunction with a group show featuring artists from Field Projects, as part of C24’s ongoing series of partnerships with non-profit and artist-run arts organizations.
