Next to Nothing is proud to present Plush Paintings: please do not pet, caress, fondle, an exhibition of paintings by Susan Carr, Osamu Kobayashi, and Jason Stopa.

Painted in a style that initially presents the artwork as abstract before belying their more technical aspects, the presented bodies of work are revelations of pure texture that show the best there is to see of paint.

With a palette of primary colors and occasional pastels, Carr, Kobayashi and Stopa’s paintings are rich with the patterns of their medium, a balanced composition of the thinnest strokes of a paintbrush to the thickest glob of paint, straight out of the tube.
