Brooklyn-based artist, Jason Bard Yarmosky, is having his first solo show with Lyons Wier Gallery in New York City on Thursday, May 3. Elder Kinder builds on Yarmosky's earlier works, exploring the notion that age doesn't prevent or limit life, but defines and provides it. Yarmosky's work is so well-constructed and mastered, the figures in the paintings, inspired by the artist's own 84-year old grandparents, seem to come to life before your eyes. Outfitted in clothing from younger years, the figures exude a light-hearted sensibility, despite the shroud of darkness.
