Last spring, Sam and I curated an exhibit of paintings of uninhabited man-made spaces. So I was naturally interested this post from Jonah Lehrer’s WIRED blog, suggesting (indirectly) that you would have been better off if you’d gone to see the show (or at least taken a morning off to go for a walk in the woods).

It’s been kind of an unexciting summer, in terms of opportunity to see new art, but that absence of supercharged blockbuster does lend itself to finding the truly-present, easily overlooked charms in the slightly less assuming exhibits around. Christopher John Bostwick’s Do You Need a Friend to Go With? is a small show in a small gallery of slightly washed out works on paper, drawn with delicacy and authority, minus conspicuous mastery that I admit I’m kind of a sucker for. More Christopher John Bostwick.
