Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present Pagan Pop, a new exhibition by Juxtapoz featured artist Nicola Verlato.

This past December 2012, we featured the works of Nicola Verlato in our print magazine. Because he was so articulate and detailed in his expression, we asked him to interview fellow Italian artist Fulvio di Piazza for our April 2013 issue. Because he was so good at that, when Verlato sent us a video of his process for creating the magnificent painting, Burzum, we want to show people how a painter really gets down.

The end of year brings us to our closing issue of 2012, and who better than London-based Conor Harrington to grace the cover for a second time (scoring at home, October 2008 was his first cover).

Merry Karnowsky Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Nicola Verlato entitled Zero Gravity. Painting in the hyper-realistic style he has become known for, Verlato exercises his virtuosic hand and classical eye to produce masterworks of choreographed chaos.

The other morning we showed you a preview of Nicola Verlato's Zero Gravity work at Merry Karnowsky opening on August 11, and Vonn Sumner will be opening striking new works on the same night at MK's space in LA. Sumner’s characters are isolated, absurd, engaging, and somehow quietly common-place.
