Sarth Reader Find

By Sarth in New Art on Friday 15 February 2013

There’s just not enough surrealism in the world, which makes Robert Lucy’s paintings extra important to me. I believe he refers to them as ‘figurative’, but I’ve never seen dolls like these before. Maybe they are magical realism. I first got turned on to his work at an open house in Bushwick, Since then, he’s […]
