Last week Hi-Fructose swung by Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City to catch up with Oliver Vernon, who we last saw on the cover of Hi-Fructose Vol. 17. Vernon’s recent relocation from Brooklyn to Grass Valley, CA encroaches upon the new work, much as the natural greenery of the paintings do their geometric and cerebral landscapes. Showing alongside Vernon’s ‘Sprung’ is the debut New York show for British artist James Roper, who’s vibrant acrylic paintings serve as the perfect compliment to Vernon’s latest masterful body of work. Get a look at both shows, now on view, here on Hi-Fructose.
