Nick Fagan: The Moving Spirit or An Appreciation of Labor

June 11 - July 25
Undercurrent, 70 John Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

The Moving Spirit or An Appreciation of Labor is Nick Fagan’s first New York solo show. According to the artist, his work is a material reaction to his experiences with mental health, disability, religion, and labor. The result is wide-spanning, unexpected, serious, and funny; it creates a tornado-style penetrating path not only into the artist’s mind but also slices through contemporary obsessions such as banality, spirituality, abstraction of language and symbols, formal hermeticism, openness, playfulness, ritual and transformation, class and…

A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

Sculpture, mixed media collage banners, and small paintings stand in the gallery as embodiments of the artist’s spirit and early memories. Throughout the show, Azara balances instinctive mark making against more considered decisions. She ultimately arrives at a dynamic interplay between deliberate manipulation of materials and image and the operation of chance, engaging intuitively with journeys of the spirit, reflections on the passage of time, and the primal essence of womanhood.

A three-dimensional layered painting installation by interdisciplinary artist Evan Paul English, who currently works and resides in Brooklyn. His current series of paintings, titled “Viewfound,” employs the use of vintage American floral textiles.

Through layering, distortion, enlargement, visual and spatial immersion, a new experience with a familiar motif arises, making space for contemplation and revelation.
