Last night saw the opening of “Chasing Castles”, a showing of new works by Conor Harrington and Chloe Early at Kinsey/Desforges Gallery in Culver City.  Five striking oil on canvas pieces were displayed by each artist, as well as several charcoal works on paper.  This is the first time the two Irish artists have exhibited together in the US and their efforts were well received by the crowd that attended the show.

Here’s a picture of Conor, who kindly posed in front of my favorite painting, “The Power of the Ring”.

This beautiful piece by Chloe is entitled “Boundary”.  Says the artist of her work, “the characters seem to languish in a forgotten dream world of innocence, excess and desire haunted only by the possibility of knowledge that their dream will fragment.”

These charcoal works on paper by Conor are entitled “Cycle” and “Cannon”.
