Marcy Brafman explores the properties of One Shot Oil Enamel, a glossy fluid pigment usually employed by sign painters. Brafman uses it in tandem with all sorts of spray paint (pearlescent, fluorescent, krylon) and sometimes even melted Crayolas. "These are paintings born of Jackson Pollock, the end of nature, comic strips, cartoons, rock n roll, black ops insignia, John Singer Sargent and a long toxic immersion in the living billboard of electronic and digital life."
Pearlescent opens May 31 and runs through June 27, 2011 at 532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckelin New York.
