Opens Dec 1, 7-9p: “Powder of Light” DALeastJonathan LeVine Gallery, 529 W20th St., NYC (9th Fl)in association with Sara & Marc Schiller of Wooster Collectivea series of new works on canvas by Chinese-born, South Africa-based artist DALeast, in what will be his first solo exhibition in the United States. Works in Powder of Light combine acrylic, ink and spray paint on a background texture of tea-stained canvas. DALeast paints animal figures in his signature style using a swirling vortex of organic black lines with white highlights. He creates a ribbon-like effect to form sinuous creatures that vibrate with kinetic energy. Horses, eagles, camels and rams leap off the picture plane, their shadows trailing behind them. Some appear to unravel while others merge together or attack one other. The artist draws inspiration from dichotomies such as the material and spiritual world, human emotion and animal nature. - thru Dec 29
