Traditions Remixed went to Fourth Wall Project

I had the pleasure of attending the private reception at the Fourth Wall for the All City. The show featured the works of John Brewer, Thomas Burns, Rob Gibbs, and Ricardo Gomez. For some of the artists I have seen their work before in various venues, however it was more then a pleasure to see it up close and personal. The work in the show had personalities of their own, however they lent themselves to one another. John Brewer has an amazing way of capturing time and the essence of his subject, where as Rob Gibbs (ProBlak) uses his understanding of relatistic painting to portray his figures. Gomez always continues to amaze me with his choice of materials and excision. This was the first time seeing Burns' work, he manages to fuse raw excision with realistic interpretation.
