Zokosky is a painter who delights in short-circuiting the accepted evolutionary order. In his canvases humans regularly divest themselves of their skins, exposing the flayed musculature beneath, whilst still maintaining classical poses.
Few painters wed representation and abstraction as astutely as Daniel Dove. His works depict cryptic landscapes-from decaying factories and urban streetscapes to eerie outdoor scenes-which often serve as backdrops for boldly abstract elements at their center.
One of the works... an untitled, wall-bound bronze, resembles the surface of glazed ceramic, though the metal is practically untouched from the way it emerged from the foundry-somewhat unusual for an artist known for his painstaking finish work.
