Reclusive Norwegian stencil artist DOLK emerges from the shadows to showcase a new collection of cutting imagery. Often monochromatic with one precisely placed color, DOLK crafts strangely beautiful story-lines into his work, infusing a wry sense of humor into such wide ranging topics as celebrity, religion and societal pressures. AS a whole DOLK’S new body of work conveys a bit more cynicism than in the past, with most figures displaying enigmatic expressions as well as the inclusion of one key prop that at times will leave you scratching your head . . .
Look closely at a satellite picture of the earth and you just might see an M-CITY mural. Listen to the echoing sounds of metal forging, pistons firing, and air compression as M-CITY, Poland’s most prolific artist working in the public space, erects yet another large scale mural on any number of continents. Using his graphic brand of stencil artillery that includes images of smoke-stack factories, cogs and gears, steam ships, and repetitive city blocks, M-CITY redefines the Industrial revolution. That same crushing imagery is transferred seamlessly to his deliberate. grey-scale canvases which could easily be passed off as Cold War propaganda.
Thank heavens half the space at BROOKLYNITE GALLERY is outdoors — quite conducive for these two addicts of outdoor activity who also plan on leaving many gifts to the propel of NYC !!”
