Just Opened: “Happy Little Accidents” Coke Wisdom O’NealMixed Greens Gallery, 531 W26th St., NYCOn October 29, 2012, O’Neal’s Red Hook studio suffered total destruction from Superstorm Sandy. Tools, books, completed artwork, and unfinished pieces were ruined. And yet, as the floodwaters receded, a series of old family slides emerged reborn. Instead of accepting them as lost, O’Neal rescued the slide sheets to scan and print. Once-crisp images are now cloud-like watercolors, often with distinguishable central details preserved. Air bubbles result in a fish-eye effect recalling the colorfully foggy nature of nostalgia and O’Neal’s compulsion to save the past.  - thru April 20
