“Journeys to Recover Your Future”
By Andy Cheng
Thru Dec. 10
It’s farfetched to say that the title of this event (“Journeys to Recover Your Future”) correlates its context, because while it may sound deeply philosophical, it’s just a painting with a large frame containing four different colors in rows. But don’t take my perception for it, because this event features the esteemed artist David Leapman, whose painting is an 8×28 foot canvas of colors meshed together (one man’s high school doodles are another man’s artworks). Leapman is a winner of John Moores 19, John Moores 20 and the Abbey Award Fellowship in Painting at the British School in Rome. His exhibitions have been reviewed by major publications such as Shark Infested Waters and Young British Artists—Saatchi Decade. The abstractness of his artworks, much like those of other artists of this era, are so good it’s incomprehensible.
