Tom Burckhardt’s “STUDIO FLOOD” is a tour de force artwork with a willfully scruffy, DIY look.
He resists institutional notions of what an abstract painting can be.
It must be summer. There are group shows galore all over Manhattan. This is when you get to discover new artists, get enthusiastic, become disenchanted, fall in love, fall out of love, all of the above, and none of the above, in one day, and still have time to sit back and read a book of poems in the evening.
If you see lots of work by different artists, you are going to make your own connections.
Tom Burckhardt just keeps getting better and better.
Pierogi is a Williamsburg, Brooklyn art gallery, and one of its longest-running traditions turns 20 this week: Brooklyn Gravity Racers.
