Hope your 2015 is off to a great start! As usual, New York’s art scene is actively thriving and has a great upcoming exhibit. Starting on January 10, acclaimed filmmaker and artist, Ryan Piers Williams will be presenting his first solo exhibition called ‘Monsters and Landscapes,’ which examines the duality of humans and nature. Inspired by his desire to discover and understand his own monsters and landscapes, Williams’ art serves to connect and reflect on the opposing forces that shape our world and our individual beings. ‘Monsters and Landscapes’ uses paint and photography to convey the different behaviors that humans and nature exude, whether they be beautiful or destructive. The exhibit is comprised of 4 themes, and one of them is called The DON’T MOVE series. This series is a detailed examination of our current society where there is a constant fear of being “shot down” both literally and figuratively. ‘Monsters and Landscapes’ is open to the public January 10 through January 16 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily at The Garfield Building on 142 Henry Street.
