Adam Stennett, who’s previously brought us meticulous marvels Underwater Mouse and Girl In Bathtub (NSFW), has a new painting in the “In Standard Time” group show at the Ana Cristea Gallery, opening tonight. Featuring ten young artist with internationally shifting residences, the exhibition seeks to find ground in the fluid, scattering state of our time. Painters address the ever-epic (historical antecedents, East vs. West), while Michael Brown contributes commentary via vinyl discs melted into utilitarian objects and Joe Diebes’ video art interprets critical music change. Come to closer leer at the details in Adam Stennett’s Soothing Syrup with two Poppies. It looks so pleasant, so very pleasant… (I WANT!)

“In Standard Time,” Feb 25 – Apr 3, Reception Feb 25 6-8pm, Ana Cristea Gallery, New York
