[Painting of Aaron Warren by Karen Aragon]
We've seen a lot of show reviews in our day, and normally it comes down to one thing -- the photos. We stopped reading the "reviews" long ago and tend to just focus on what the vibe looks like and how we imagine it would've looked had we been there in person. Then we saw these beautiful paintings of the Black Dice show last week at Le Poisson Rouge, and now we're kind of hoping there are more Bob Ross wannabe's out there who can present shows to us this way.
In all fairness, we assume Karen Aragon's hair is better than Mr. Ross, but we think her renditions of Aaron Warren and Eric and Bjorn Copeland deserve their own public access show. This painting of Mr. Warren [above], along with two more of the brothers Copeland ran last week on Impose. You can see the rest of Karen's paintings and full show review here.
