In March, NY Coo Gallery will hold an exhibition "Paved Paradise" by Mark Bischel and a group exhibition of Japanese artists curated by Fugetsusha Gallery.
1) Mark Bischel: Paved Paradise
Mark Bischel sees poetry in the empty spaces of New York City. In the series Paved Paradise, he focuses on stark, open parking lots that are being filled in slowly by the mechanisms of overdevelopment. These once maligned gaps created by tearing out the urban fabric, have become precious spaces of light and air. Ironically, these spaces are now being filled back in by developers speculating on soaring property values. Bischelfs work is not only a homage to this vanishing feature in New York City but a meditation on the unexpected beauty and mystery of the humble parking lot and their solitary attendants who inhabit small shelters in the context of a larger space filled with light and shadow. Beyond the silent presence of the individual attendant is often a glimpse of a larger world, beckoning and just out of sight around the corner.
