Heather Morgan and Paul D’Agostino: Foofaraw & Spleen

131 Chrystie Street. (212) 627-7221
Opens: 05/10/17, Closes: 06/11/17

Quirky personal relationships to literary themes are the unifying factor in this joint show of two, markedly distinct artist friends. Morgan’s trademark gutsy bravura brushstrokes are usually focused on the artist herself but in this instance stray to literary heroes from the romantic and existentialist canon – Artaud, Baudelaire (pictured). D’Agostino, best known for his jokey personal riff on Suprematism, shows another side of his artistic personality with diaristic pages of humorous text narratives accompanying watercolor images of flowers and produce.
