Booth Gallery in New York is currently hosting a hauntingly beautiful group exhibition this season featuring one of the biggest names in the art world today.

Curated by art critic Donald Kuspit and gallery director Casey Gleghorn, Booth Gallery’s current exhibition “Sensuous & Pensive: At Odds & Overlapping” is a visual feast and conceptual journey through contemporary and imaginative realism. Featuring works by nine artists — some represented by one work, others by multiples — “the exhibition takes a fresh look at the ‘conceptual’ label in contemporary art,” the gallery suggests. “The collection of works is a varied perceptual feast. Visitors are invited to contemplate both the pure visual experience (sensuous) versus the intellectual experience (pensive) elicited by each piece. What is revealed is that the exhibited works convincingly activate both categories of perception.”
