ARTSY. NET article 12 artists in Group Shows who Deserve Solo Shows features Tommy Kha currently showing in DISCURSIVE SELVES in Westbeth Gallery

Conventional wisdom holds that the bonanza of New York summer shows is little more than a sleepy pause before the fall season kicks into gear. But it’s also a terrific time to scout group exhibitions for the lesser-known talent on the cusp of wider recognition—artists who will, with any justice, soon be given their own solo-show spotlight in the city.
But don’t despair if you’ve been hiding out at the beach for the past two months: we’ve done the hard work for you. Below, we take a look at 12 discoveries—including a painter of video game aesthetics, a photographer of Elvis impersonators, and a sculptor inspired by seaweed—that the art world will be buzzing about before long.

“I have always tried to make paintings that are beautiful and arresting. Paintings that stop you in your tracks. Whether by the use of color and composition or odd juxtaposition of subject matter.
The idea is to make the viewer do a double-take and then get drawn in and perhaps ask questions.

These new paintings are motivated by the current political climate. As Joe Strummer once said: “If you want to tell the truth, you’ve really got to be specific”.

I AM BEING MORE SPECIFIC!

The total disregard of human rights via the increasingly militarized police force, immigration policies, and environmental prospects our planet faces leads me to realize that in the US and globally, we have a conflict of interest.” – Stephen Hall
