New Work

A solo exhibition by Craig Costello

Minimalist, experimental, intellectual and primal. Black and white abstraction. Formal and yet technically avant-garde. Vibrant, refined, gestural - in and out of control. Arrested motion. Perfected through repetition, but never perfect. The work of Craig Costello is all about equilibrium. Surface, movement, paint, application and reaction.

Craig Costello, born 1971 in New York City, USA, lives and works in Brooklyn, USA. Recent exhibitions include Beyond the Streets, New York, USA, 2019, Fundamentals, Rouen, France, 2019 and WHQ, agnès b. Galerie Boutique, New York, USA, 2017.
