The Cacciola Gallery on west 23rd Street currently features Bronx painter Valeri Larko’s new show.
Valeri paints urban scenes. I met her while shooting a building she was painting.
We see the same things. The composition is uncanny.
She painted and I’ve shot pictures of the Elder 6-train trestle bridge, too.
And her painting of these rusty storage tanks is almost a ringer for my own picture, taken in February 2010.
It’s an art school maxim that an artist’s eye can see composition and know intuitively whether it’s good or not. Valeri and I seem to agree on a lot.
Fun show! Thanks Valeri.
