Ford continues to explore the visual and narrative scope of traditional natural history painting with his monumental watercolors, chronicling encounters between human culture and the natural world. Several pieces in this exhibition will expand upon Ford's longstanding practice of incorporating written marginalia in his work, and feature for the first time musings penned by the artist from the perspective of his animal subjects.

Rebranding an iconic and historical institution is perhaps a dream job for any creative, especially after seeing Sagmeister & Walsh's brand new execution for the New York Jewish Museum. Based on the Star of David, the entire system is drawn on a grid, from the word and logo mark, to dozens of patterns, icons, typography, and illustrations.

April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer will be returning to Mondo Cane in NYC with his third solo show of new and previously un-shown paintings and drawings on Thursday, May 1st. The "Meet Me Later" series transports us to seemingly familiar street corners, interiors and subway platforms populated by characters caught in frozen moments of furtive activity. The work has a timeless quality which seems to draw from influences as diverse as Léger, The Italian Renaissance and even the narrative economy of Raymond Carver. Ambigiuous narratives connect the work, while Rementer's use of bold colour, street signage, and textile pattern create further layers and stories of their own.

Ed. Varie is pleased to present Neverending Index, a solo-exhibition of recent work by artist Anna Sörenson, with opening reception on Thursday April 10th from 6-9pm. Neverending Index is a conceptual project that began in 2010 exploring the ideas of painting with water based media, collage, and text. The work explores a narrative that is more than an ordinary scrupulous examination of one's consciousness but also a reflection of Sörenson 's process and the relationship between mediums.
