We are excited about this one, as the show has a lot of our friends and artists we admire at the moment. Joshua Liner Gallery presents All Types of Characters, a group exhibition curated by arts and culture digest The World’s Best Ever. Showcasing over thirty contemporary artists based in Canada, Denmark, and The United States, the exhibition highlights the presence of characters in each artists’ work and their function as a means to explore identity and ideas of beauty as a social commentary. All Types of Characters will open with a reception on Thursday, June 18, 2015.

We are very excited to get a first look at Christian Rex van Minnen's work for his upcoming "Glazed and Confused" exhibit at Gallery Poulsen in Copenhagen, Denmark. Featured in our recent April, 2014 issue, van Minnen explores the techniques and styles of Old Masters' oil painting while seeking out opportunities within the traditional layers and glazes of paint to create a confused stratum of form, content and meaning...

One of our favorite artists that we learned about last year was Rhode Island-born, Christian Rex van Minnen.

We just saw some of his newer works, and wanted to show them today.

"In my work, whether stone and oil, metal and wood, or cardboard and papier-mâché alchemy and automatism are linked together in the cognitive creative process. Intention becomes line, line becomes shape, shape becomes form, and form becomes content. In my work I find myself either suppressing or indulging of my own desire to associate personal narrative to the raw visual information inherent in the material and process."
