Dana Powell, “Closer Things”

Intimate, enigmatic still lifes of fruit (bananas, apricots, pears, pumpkins) serve as the artist’s metaphors for decay, sex and desire.

Alex Da Corte, “A Man Full of Trouble”

Da Corte’s rambling installation of pop-cultural castoffs takes issue with American exceptionalism by looking back to the Founding Fathers who managed to reconcile slavery with stirring rhetoric about individual liberty.

Theo Triantafyllidis, “a mountain made to look like a person holding a knife”

Referencing both art history and computer graphics, the Greek artist presents videos, digital prints and 3-D–printed sculptures that offer a phantasmagoria of images reflecting on the relationship between virtual reality and the physical world it tries to emulate.

This publication is totally missing out on  the best Artist in America, I saw this artist work at Wichita State University of last year, this artist took recyclables and woven them like Rumpelstiltskin did with straw, in other words taking trash, and turning it into works that stir up a persons desire on site, and demands your attention. If Time Out of New York ignore this guy, you're truly missing a rising Star.

Won't be looking to TimeOutNY's laughable, trend-following dilettantes for gallery recommendations anytime soon.
