ARTPIL / Prescription .071
Inferno nel Paradiso

 

Fires in a town call Paradise in California take over 70 lives to date and counting, and still over a thousand missing. Trying to reason it all, a tragedy in every sense, unmitigated by the gaffe of the soulless hedonist calling it ‘Pleasure’ and passing blame… Pray for the rain. Pray for the day to end…

This is our .071st edition of Prescriptions. This is our review of the week in the arts.

 

Christopher Anderson

Bleu Blanc Rouge / Christopher Anderson

The dynamic between movement and stillness resembles a series of stills from a never-made movie, distilled from a larger narrative, a mosaic of different lives, stories and captured moments. Christopher Anderson, on view through December 8, 2018 at Ravestijn Gallery.
