In celebration of Bushwick Open Studios 2016, The Buggy Factory will host a sampling of greats from nearby artists interspersed with artworks from creators located just outside the geographic demarcations of this universal conversation. This sun-filled, historic carriage house will be installed with works that, at first pull, seemed like core emblems of the amazing talents on offer from these seven artists. Further looking revealed several shared or simpatico through lines including a varied exploration of the human form, a focus on vibrant and lustrous color, and an interest in the tactile qualities of their chosen materials. The title, taken from the Wim Wenders art house cinema classic, alludes to art's gentle ability to permeate membranes of separation, establishing connection and inspiration independent of distance, time, or space. ... oh yeah, and angels. There were angels in the film and as it happens, we’ve also a few.
