An exhibition of twelve new oil paintings on canvas by Joe Sorren opens at AFA Gallery in SoHo on March 5th. The works explore new forms and palette, highlighting the tender faces and gestures of Sorren’s signature figures.  Joe Sorren allows his artworks to evolve naturally and subconsciously. His fluid and expressive brush strokes convey deep care; his compositions are soft, soothing and invite the viewer to explore deeply emotional subjects within hazy and dreamlike landscapes. Joe Sorren’s work has been called dreamy, tender, surreal, and enigmatic. He is one of those artists with an ability to create a story of endless interpretation.

Velvet & Zoer

Zone Autonome & Perpetuum Mobile

Opening: March 8


56 rue Alexandre Dumas, Paris

On March 8, the Openspace gallery in Paris will present the work of longtime friends and collaborators Velvet and Zoer. This is their first solo exhibition at Openspace gallery in Paris and will run until March 29. Velvet and Zoer first met while training to be designers. In love with the object and graffiti, they founded the CSX crew (Unemployed without experience). Creative complicity overtook rivalry, and each saw the other as presenting an opportunity to evolve. Sometimes working with two hands, sometimes four, their dialogue helped them to develop an inimitable style within themselves.
