The Independent previews Mikel Glass The Discarded in today's edition: "Contemporary artist Mikel Glass specializes in realist painting, but his subjects are not as classical as his style.
"I like to paint the things that nobody wants," says Glass from his studio in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan.
"Throughout his career, the 46-year-old Glass has represented the "outcasts and discards of society," a sobering set of muses he finds beautiful and honest. They provide the basis for his solo exhibition at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Mikel Glass The Discarded, a three-tiered show, features sculpture, painting and a site-specific installation, and opens this week.
