Backslash is proud to announce Surface, the first solo show by Dutch artist Boris Tellegen—better known by his DELTA tag—to be held at the gallery. His installations, wood and paper collages and photographs take the visitor on a journey into a constructed universe where the intersection between the real and the conceptual is anchored in a geometrical style based on reversed perspectives.

We had the pleasure to be visit the opening of the most recent exhibition of Stephen Powers, aka ESPO, at the Joshua Line Gallery in NYC. A Word is Worth a Thousand Pictures is a wonderful translation of Powers' love of sign-painting, images, and colors. The pieces are made of enamel on aluminum with type, graphics and bright pigments, where Powers constructs a unique personal language that speaks to all.

The exhibition featured meticulous, two-foot colored pencil and graphite drawings to towering ten-foot works on paper; from tiny sculptural interventions to massive three dimensional arrangements.

May 2011 cover artist and Los Angeles based fine artist, Eric Yahnker is set to open his first NYC solo show, Virgin Birth 'N' Turf, at The Hole tonight, September 4. One of the most talented drawers we can think of, with meticulous details of some of the most innane pop-culture topics, Yahnker's notes his new works "provides a mad lab where I get to swab the inner-cheek and place under a microscope a petri dish of the contemporary American experience in the shadow of another blisteringly contentious Presidential election..."
