New Project: Adjacent to Life


James Himber, The Blue Chair, oil on canvas, 40" x 30"

TINSQUO is moving beyond the digital screen to a space adjacent to Life. In fact, that's what it's called and it begins now!

Adjacent to Life: a curatorial project of launches today. The “freaky sad" paintings of James Himber inaugurate the proceedings.

His exhibit, Existential Shipwrecks, portrays castoffs and waifs - misfits struggling to locate their place in the world and on the canvas.

The show resides at Ninth Street Espresso (341 East 10th Street at Ave B - "10-B" for regulars). Drop by for some intense espresso with art to match. It's on view through February 9.

For more on James' work and the curatorial project visit Adjacent to Life, the blog ("follow' and 'like' us on Tumblr).

Art Is Relevant

At Occupy Lincoln Center Philip Glass mic-checks Satyagraha's final lines after the close of the Opera's run. The text from the Bhagavad-Gita:

"When righteousness withers away and evil rules the land, we come into being, age after age, and take visible shape, and move, a man among men, for the protection of good, thrusting back evil and setting virtue on her seat again."
