TI's art correspondent Mr. Briscoe (our man on the gallery scene) was very busy this weekend. Here is his short report on the stops he made while gallery-crawling.

We started at a group show at Thrust Project. At Thrust Lisa Hamilton give space and dimension a mood with neutral colors... Elizabeth Cooper's abstract painting spoke volumes with style and design...Guild & Greyshkul offered a defiant group show full of outlaw attitude...Amanda Ross-Ho DEFIES!...Smith& Stewart's Kerstin Bratsch & Adole Roder gave me a kind of sexual healing!

The E. 64th Street Chanel store threw open its doors last Thursday to Katherine Bernhardt and her vivid paintings which filled the luxury emporium from door to column to wall. Katherine's fun circle was out in full force to celebrate including our art correspondent Ghurron Briscoe and fellow artist Jayson Keeling who nabbed these snaps with his mighty Leica. Despite the very strong drinks that night. To see more of this rising painter's work contact Canada, her NY gallery. After the Chanel stamp, Katherine's sure to be sizzling among the fashion industry art heads.

TI's always elegant art correspondent Ghurron Briscoe swung by the Chris Ofili opening at the David Zwirner gallery and made Mr. Ofili's acquaintance. The David Zwirner gallery issued this press release regarding the event.
Opening on September 20, 2007, David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by artist Chris Ofili, who lives and works in Trinidad. This will be the artist’s debut solo exhibition at David Zwirner and the first to unite his work in painting, sculpture, printmaking, and graphite drawing. A fully-illustrated catalogue will be published by Steidl/David Zwirner in conjunction with the exhibition.
The exhibition title, Devil’s Pie, is derived from singer-songwriter D’Angelo’s 1998 lyrical meditation on temptation and retribution, reaffirming the artist’s longstanding relationship with music, especially hip-hop sounds and culture, as well as his continued exploration of Biblical themes. According to the song, the ingredients of this metaphorical dish include “materialistic, greed and lust, jealousy, envious/bread and dough, cheddar cheese, flash and stash, cash and cream.” While addressing specific aspects of the black urban experience, the song maintains a universal significance, questioning the nature of sin, desire, and redemption. Similarly, in its diverse references and inextricable dichotomies, Ofili’s work functions as a magnet for viewers’ own meanings, ideas, or arguments and encourages them to disagree freely, even with themselves.
