DARK STAR M****RF****R by Jim Krewson Opening Reception
7:30 PM // FREE
Presented by Basilica Hudson and The Hudson Eye
in the Basilica Gallery Building
With sounds by Thee BunnyBrains
Basilica Hudson and The Hudson Eye are proud to present the opening reception for Jim Krewson‘s exhibition DARK STAR MOTHERF*CKER. Join us for refreshments & sounds by The BunnyBrains. This new series of paintings seeks to visit a psychedelic landscape completely oriented by the imagination, heavily influenced by the Krautrock movement of the early 70s and the Japanese band Acid Mothers Temple.
With the use of black light and fluorescent airbrush paint, artist Jim Krewson invites the viewer to escape reality and hopes to help subvert the bland moralizing of much of contemporary art.
He describes the paintings as “the cosmos you visit when you close your eyes too hard”.
Freak out. Have fun.
Jim Krewson has been using airbrush as his main instrument since the age of 14. He hails from Bucks County, PA and is an art school dropout.
Currently living in Catskill, NY, he did a previous residency with Basilica Hudson in 2018. He has shown with Zack Feuer’s Retrospective Gallery, Gavin Brown’s Enterprise and Andrew Kreps among others.
