The large-scale figures in Maciek Jasik‘s series “Bypassing the Rational” were originally inspired by Post-Impressionist painting, and the images take viewers into an endless sea of color. The fine-art and editorial portrait says that with this series, “I am knowingly retreating from the details which draw and entice us, and which allow us to judge.” Jasik’s first solo show, scheduled to open November 1 at Daniel Cooney Fine Art in the Chelsea section of Manhattan, was put “on hold” as a result of the flooding and power outage to the building and the neighborhood during Hurricane Sandy.
Gallery owner Daniel Cooney reports that the show is up, and when the building can reopen, the exhibition will be extended after its originally scheduled closing date of December 22.
Like many gallery owners in lower Manhattan, Daniel Cooney continues to be in touch with collectors and artists. His online auction also continues: www.danielcooneyfineart.com/online_auctions.html
