He’s already an art star in his native United Kingdom and now artist Chris Moon has taken a trip across the pond to debut his first US exhibit, an Armory Week related popup show entitled “Carousel.”

The exhibit is showing at 164 11th Avenue, one of the last pre-war buildings to be used as an art studio in Chelsea.  The building will be torn down shortly after the exhibit. Moon lived and worked in this building for 3 months creating this exhibit.  The carousel located in the neighboring Chelsea Piers appears repeatedly in the paintings – a symbolic gesture of Moon’s ability to incorporate his surroundings into his work.

I encourage you to click on these pictures to see clearer images, because there is a lot of detail that is not necessarily readily seen.  I spent quite a while looking at his works at the opening night reception, and upon each glance, I kept noticing different things.
