Brian Calvin's stunning figures retain the feeling of early teenage angst-ridden figure drawings, but with a sophisticated polish. His portraits convey serious attitudes of awkwardness that we can't stop looking at.

I confess, I'm a huge fan of Jonas Wood's paintings. I was first attracted to his life-sized reporductions of obscure baseball cards, but became even more fascinated by his unique and original take on still-lifes, portraits, and paintings of what appears to be average suburban living rooms. Simply put, Wood does the everyday in a very beautiful way. This month, Wood opened his fourth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery in NYC, featuring portraits of friends, tennis, news rooms, pets, and rooms.
