New York!  If you get the chance before May 18, 2013, you should definitely head over to Flagg Art Foundation in Chelsea because they are currently showing two great exhibitions.  The first (on the 10th floor) is by Hilary Harkness and one floor below is “Issue” by Tom Molloy.  Both exhibits require extra viewing time as there is so much detail in both.  For me, the highlight of “Issue” is a panel featuring tiny replicas of various people protesting.

As you look through the multitudes of miniature protestors, you will find yourself forming your own view on many of the things that these people take issue with.  Some of the issues include anti-Marijuana, “Lady Gaga Leads Hell,” “Stop the killing in Kashmir,” “Who’s Afraid of Twitter,” “Stop the Religious Bullshit,” “My pension is my pay” and so on.

When you first gaze upon Hilary Harkness’ paintings which are now showing at Flagg Art in New York, you’ll find there is a lot going on in them.  Many compartments, many people, many scenarios.  As you take a closer look, you’ll find all sorts of subversive activities going on in her works.

You definitely need to see these paintings in person to fully appreciate the detail and the numerous actions that are happening simultaneously in her paintings.  These people are having a party and you are invited… to be a voyeur!

This exhibit reminded me of “Inside Out” by In Sook Kim which has a similar premise, except his art is photo based.
