Brian Batt: GREENHOUSE // Christina Arza: Women & Flowers
Artist Brian Batt will debut his latest works – all part of his new ‘GREENHOUSE” series—at Foley Gallery (59 Orchard St) on New York’s Lower East Side. Open from November 8 through November 19, the pop-up exhibition will feature 21 original works – paintings and drawings— created by Batt over the last two years. Also on view: “Women & Flowers” is a series by New York-based photographer, Christina Arza.
Batt’s style, comparable to that of Chuck Close, invites the viewer to ingest life through a kaleidoscope of color, depth, and shocking precision. Until recent months, Batt has mainly focused his molecular creativity on world famous icons, such as Questlove and Pete Townshend, or city landmarks, such as Katz’s Deli. Now, with “GREENHOUSE,” Batt offers an escape from bright lights and urban sprawl to the lush beauty, inspired by quiet moments in his Brooklyn rooftop garden.
A perfect foil for “GREENHOUSE,” Christina Arza’s “Women & Flowers” draws inspiration from classical painting and photography portraiture. The images were shot on medium format and each capture women with a flower of their choice in an intimate environment.
