The first time we saw a piece from Jason Bard Yarmosky‘s Elder Kinder series, we were stunned. It was a fall afternoon at Lyons Wier Gallery in Chelsea and Yarmosky’s “Horse Feathers” (part of a group show) hung right near the gallery’s entrance, greeting visitors with its queer playfulness.
The elderly woman’s seemingly surly demeanor matched with the frolicsome motif created a brilliant contrast that made the painting beyond memorable. Once we discovered the rest of the series (close to a year later), we found that this brilliant contrast was no flash in the pan.
