I keep seeing knockout paintings by Keltie Ferris. She shows at Horton in Chelsea, and I think she's one of the most interesting younger painters out there.I'm always struck by the balance she achieves between structure and improvisation, and the beautiful surfaces she gets with such a direct process. The paintings buzz with ecstatic energy that is both primal and playful. Images from Horton website.
