REVIEW: ST. VINCENT

If there are saints among us, St. Vincent, led by the renowned Bill Murray, has earned it as far as films go.

“Between Words”, a solo exhibition by Kyle Stewart happens in the back gallery. Stewart, one of the winners of Parlor’s Juried Exhibition curated by Jonathan Levine in 2013, will present eight new oil paintings which continue the exploration of his memories of nature, the details of which are transformed by the passage of time, sentiment and his urban environment. The figures that now appear alongside organic forms represent the disconnect with nature the artist feels when painting landscapes from far removed memories. This will be Kyle’s first US solo exhibition.
