Contemporary painter Henry Asencio has emerged as one of the most intriguing young artists working today. Avant-garde in execution, his work blends the classical ideals of figurative painting with a unique, contemporary style revered in his art.
The artist states, “Painting for me is very cathartic and is the most articulate way for me to express my passion and internal dialogues.”
Merging introspection and visual spectacle, Asencio’s personal investigations of femininity, spirituality and abstraction possess the power to transform today’s ideals of elegance and contemporary sensuality. 12-5pm

Gemini G.E.L. is very pleased to announce 'Reversals', an exhibition of ten new Paintstik works. The exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, April 11 from 3-5pm and will be on view through Friday, May 22. A survey of Serra’s collaborations with Gemini will concurrently be on view.
Serra’s 'Reversals' are comprised of two sheets of handmade paper to which a Paintstik and silica mixture is applied by hand. These sheets are then framed as a single work. In his signature style, Serra uses black Paintstik to build bold, densely layered forms that absorb light, creating a strong sense of gravity, weight and mass.
Serra has long been acclaimed for his challenging, innovative work and his large-scale, site-specific sculpture. Employing industrial materials, he explores the dialogue between artwork, environment and viewer. Since 1972, Serra has collaborated on over 250 editions with Gemini.
