Gilbert Hsaio is a terrific painter who I met about a year ago when we both hung work in a show called Presentational Painting 3 at Hunter College. He's gone blog-happy, launching blogs about Op painting, Baroque Painting, Mannerist Painting, Tintoretto, and his own work. Another Blog about Sienese painting is in the works. Go, Gilbert, go!
Gilbert's going to be in a show called The Optical Edge at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery, opening March 7th. This looks like it's going to really good; I'm planning to write about it here after it goes up.
