Obsessed with interiors, painter Greg Drasler creates rooms that refuse to leave the viewer’s mind. Through these large-scale illusionary images, Drasler poses the question: inasmuch as we make and reinvent our surroundings, is it not ourselves we are seeking to organize and know? The installation at Grand Central Art Center will feature five paintings on hand painted wallpaper style installation walls. The series featured is titled Tattoo Parlor. A publication is being produced for this exhibition.
