Disturbing, melancholy, troubled, maddening, intimate. These are a few words that come to mind when one comes across a painting by Alexander Yulish. His work has been compared to Picasso, Pollock, and a hint of Francis Bacon.
The best art works on many levels. Gisela Colon's recent solo show, entitled Pods, at Ace Gallery reminded me of this fact. Her bulbous vacuum-formed plastic wall sculptures are painted with a mysterious, pearlescent glow.
