Shelley Reed’s In Dubious Battle

Recently on view at Danese Corey Gallery in New York, artist Shelley Reed’s mural-sized paintings evoke the work of realist French or Dutch paintings from a bygone era—although at a slight removal given their monochromatic palettes. Each section foregrounds exotic animals juxtaposed with still life scenes and set against expansive landscapes, which are dotted with Rococo and neoclassical architecture. The indulgent paintings are an amalgamation of art historical tropes, bringing to mind a myriad of references. - Nadiah Fellah, NYC Contributor

Revisiting NAP Issue #1

At the very least, our design teams have come a long way! The content, however, although receiving face-lifts every so often, has been the same. We have featured artists from all over the country in our magazine achieving greater exposure for their work. As it states in the first publisher's note, "...this publication can act as an open studio for artists across an entire region, whether they work in close proximity to other artists or work alone in the woods...This book represents the launching of a new idea in art publishing, a new opportunity for emerging artists, and a new market for collectors."
