As anyone who's spent any time here at Erratic Phenomena will know, Dutch painter Chris Berens fascinates me. His unique, self-taught technical excellence and acknowledgment of the Old Masters exalt his vision of an extraordinary universe which he views as if through the distortion of an ancient optical device.
I'm thrilled to announce that Chris will have a small show at Jaski Gallery in Amsterdam, opening on June 20. Less than one month later, 13 of his paintings will be installed at the Netherlands' Noordbrabants Museum for his first museum exhibition, which runs from July 12th through the end of August. His New York debut is scheduled for December 16th at Sloan Fine Art.
