Painting of the Week: Lucky (Mr. Torso)

Andrea Champlin, “Lucky (Mr. Torso), 2010, oil and acrylic on canvas, 18-1/2 x 18”

This week, wandering around Chelsea, I was struck by Andrea Champlin‘s gutsy little painting in Vivid,” an exhibition at Schroeder Romero & Shredder that celebrates a “post-everything” sensibility, embracing painting for painting’s sake. Let’s hope to see more of Champlin’s work in 2011.
