New York artist Evan Gruzis is known for his mastery of creating deceptively photo-like ink paintings. In his first solo exhibition at The Journal Gallery, he steps away from his previously used stark silhouettes and graphic contrasts to present “A Touch of Grey,” which was inspired by his recent trip to Florida. He manages to stay far away from the usual stereotypes, and focuses on the side of Florida that is rarely seen. The result is a strikingly tragic view of the Sunshine State. Drawing inspiration from the kitschy images sold to tourists and the landscape of the state itself, Gruzis explores many aspects of Florida, from foreclosed homes to sunsets. The exhibit opens on May 8th at 6 PM, and will be at the Journal Gallery until June 8th.
