With his most recent work, artist Ben Grasso continues painting landscapes hovering between the abstract and actual. Inspired by the observations of Danish public placemaker Jan Gehl, the Brooklyn-based artist doesn’t let “arbitrary boundaries get in the way” of painting places where “hurtling parts of man-made structures freeze in midair and mingle with nature.” Tonight, Ben Grasso opens Clearing, a solo show of his latest paintings, at Thierry Goldberg Projects from 6 to 8 PM. The exhibition is on view through through June 7 at 5 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side.
