Just opened this past Friday at Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York is a solo show of paintings by Joshua Marsh entitled As If. The paintings vibrate with glowing hues and simplified still life shapes, functioning both as representational images and distinctly formal fields of color. "Strong color and the play of light dominate Marsh’s paintings, slowly revealing simple objects. Color functions as form, while objects and their surroundings border on dissolution."

It's no doubt that the Rockaways in New York faced some extreme damage during Hurricane Sandy, and right beside the site where the boardwalk once stood, MoMA PS1 has constructed and rebuilt a large geodesic dome as a space to percolate thought, host events, and create an exciting exchange of various kinds. We are eager to see what results. It will be officially opening this Friday, March 29, 2013.
