This weekend Souther Salazar opened his much anticipated solo show at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York. Entitled “Last Year’s Man,” the exhibition exploded with a menagerie of paintings, sculptures, and mixed media installations in Souther’s signature style. From intricate line drawn empires to utopian cityscapes, Souther has unleashed the inner workings of his imagination and sprinkled in hints of social commentary. Personally I’m constantly enthralled by the detail in each piece finding it difficult to tear myself from the diverging narratives and charming characters. On view until June 16th, “Last Year’s Man” is a must see if in the NY area.
