For the inaugural opening of 10 Corso Como at Avenue L, Kris Ruhs has conceived a monumental grouping of imaginative figure paintings to celebrate the event.
Each painting catching an aspect of the exuberance and lightness of a day's outing. The fanciful animals and masks share our experience of surprise and delight as we engage them and each other in a wonderful adventure of exploration.
Ruhs here uses a minimalist palette of black, white, reds and browns to create these fantastical beings.
The simplicity of colors and shapes, and the direct expressions brought about through these deceptively simple renderings, strips away our own masks and cause us to enjoy the party with them.
