PLUSH PAINT

Osamu Kobayashi / Jason Stopa / Susan Carr

December 13, 2018 - January 20, 2019


Next to Nothing is proud to present Plush Paint, an exhibition of paintings by Susan Carr, Osamu Kobayashi and Jason Stopa. Painted in a style that initially presents the artwork as abstract before belying their technicality, the presented bodies of work are revelations of pure texture that show us the best there is to see of paint. With a palette of primary colors and occasional pastels, Carr, Kobayashi and Stopa’s paintings are rich with the patterns of their medium, a balanced composition of the thinnest strokes of paintbrush to the thickest glob of paint, straight out of the tube.
