A select exhibition in a private gallery
Greg DraslerBetty Cuningham Gallery, New York
Greg Drasler’s new paintings provide a trip back in time, presenting seemingly straightforward studies of steamer trunks, 1940s automobiles, and the interiors of buildings and homes. The contemplative scenes, mostly emptied of human figures, inevitably recall the work of Edward Hopper. But the mood is altogether more vibrant, and Drasler seems to relish the chance to render bright art deco forms and the polish of leather and chrome. Carefully capturing the repeated patterns of checked linoleum floors or the curves of men’s hats in a crowd, he summons a feeling for the past without stooping to nostalgia. Through June 27, 541 W. 25th St. Prices range from $15,000 to $40,000.
