The Vibrant Paintings of Andrew Kuo Hone in on the Tender Side of ‘Quantitative Aesthetics’

Among the slate of early winter shows this year, Broadway Gallery’s “Me, Lately,” an offering of new paintings by Andrew Kuo, was a highlight amid the downtown scene. The vibrant and cerebral offerings span the artist’s sense of humor, affinity for cultural references, and propensity for self-reflection.

Tucked below the paintings with layers of jagged circles, the viewer finds that they are, in fact, looking at pie graphs. In the work Things I Could Be we see several slices: “optimistic,” “pessimistic,” “right but sad,” “wrong but happy.”
