Opening this Friday, June 1st, at the Stranger Factory Gallery in Albuquerque is three solo shows, the first of which is from Chet Zar. This new series of works is entitled Le Petite Mort and features 11, 5″ x 7″ oil paintings, each with a hand-cast resin frame. While these works are smaller, they show how a skilled painter and craftsman such as Chet Zar can make art of any size incredibly intense, detail rich, and most importantly continue to show why Chet is one of the best dark artists working today. Take a look at the preview images, and then keep your eye on the galleries webpage for the full show. If your in the area, the reception is June 1st starting at 6pm.
