Last night I had the pleasure of attending an opening at Paul Kasmin Gallery of some astounding new work by artist, and long time friend Walton Ford. If you aren’t familiar with his work it is best described as James Audobon with a level of social commentary and graphic sexual undertones. His new paintings titled “I don’t like to look at him, Jack” which are giant 9 foot by 12 foot watercolors capturing the emotions of King Kong. The detail of these pieces and the rendering of the facial expressions is exquisite. The show will be running through December 23rd if you are in New York City you should pop over to Chelsea and check it out.
