    Blanket Gallery presents Beige Infinity, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Brian Kokoska (10).

    A palette all together garish, gloomy and vivid elaborates a simultaneity of figurative and pictorial elements in which figures seem tied down, trapped or forced to pose, but are mystifyingly true to life. Kokoska's modestly scaled oil paintings explore the surreal, the fantastical, but are at the same time an uncanny reflection of youth culture; its underlying tension and its chaotic, distracted language.

    Upcoming solo shows are to be held at Preteen Gallery, Mexico City, Styx Projects, Hamburg/Berlin, a two-person show at Vox Populi, Philadelphia, and a group installation at Art Amsterdam 2012.
