Michael Berryhill "Incidental Western" at KANSAS

James Kalm is cruising the lower, Lower East Side, when he drops by a gallery he's been intending to visit for months. Kansas is presenting the opening of Michael Berryhill's "Incidental Western" and your reporter is impressed. Constructing his pictures from a m?lange of early Modernist and Metaphysical styles representing the nescient phase of Surrealism, Berryhill scrapes and overworks the pictures until the have the luster of scrimshaw. Imagery is a tangle of representational forms verging into abstraction and back again, and a love of the painter's craft, a melodically high keyed palette, and the history of painting is evident. A musical introduction, recorded live under the "Arch" at Washington Square Park, is graciously provided by "Eight Two" http://www.eighttwomusic.com/. Their CD "You're Too Wonderful" is available from Amazone, check it out folks.
