R. Nicholas Kuszyk @ Cinders

I first noticed R. Nicholas Kuszyk's spellbinding robots on an amazing mural outside the Bagel Store on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. I then was captivated by his work on canvas when I saw it at McCaig-Welles. Today we went over to Cinders Gallery -- one of my favorite spots anywhere -- just as he was getting ready for tonight's opening. It was great to meet the artist --who is as charming as his characters! The installation is stunning and beautifully executed. Entitled "Superconcious Futureritual," it continues at 103 Havemeyer through March 12th. (Later in the afternoon, I discovered a children's book of his at Spoonbill & Sugartown. Wow!)
