Gallery 151 presents John Platt for his second solo exhibition at its newest location in Chelsea, 132 W. 18th Street. This dynamic painter fuses together a world of abstract meeting realism in his latest series INTERCHANGE, creating a visual drama based on color, theme and gesture. A large part of his work is rooted in photography, fashion, architecture and film. We can look forward to Platt revealing his portraits of friends and family members, painted with an exquisitely sensitive eye, yet interchanged with his ideas on abstraction. Platt gives us a crisp sense of electricity and movement through his use of paint, something in which is both elusive and confrontational, much like the modern world we live in today. The artist uses our world to influence this new body of work. http://www.gallery151.com/  Photo and review courtesy of NY ART BEAT. http://www.nyartbeat.com/event/2011/A1B1
