Press Release

Anita Rogers Gallery will exhibit a selection of new work from painters Tristan Barlow and Robert Szot this summer. The work will be on view July 18 - August 31 at 15 Greene Street, Ground Floor in SoHo, New York.

Both painters will present large-scale explorations of color in oil on linen. Each painter approaches this traditional medium with boldness and confidence in his mark-making. The artists both emphasize materials, continual self-editing and an intuitive understanding of color and line, but have distinct visual languages.

Barlow (b. 1990) studied at the New York Studio School with Carole Robb and University of Southern Mississippi before receiving his MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. The artist was awarded the Red Mansion Art Prize 2014 and the Barto dos Santos Memorial Award 2015. He has been awarded residencies at the Chautauqua Institute of Art, Vermont Studio Center, and the Red Gate Residency in Beijing, China.  His work has been included in the John Moores Painting Prize Exhibition in 2016, Creekside Open, Selected by Lisa Milroy in 2015, and the Red Mansion Art Prize Exhibition in 2015. The artist lives and works in London.

Szot (b. 1976) has exhibited his work in many galleries across the United States from New York to Los Angeles and Texas. Szot's paintings have been exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery in London and, in 2014, the artist was invited to participate in the Whitney Museum Art Party. His work is in public collections, including Credit Suisse, and numerous private collections, such as Beth DeWoody and the Bass Family. The artist currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
