Kool-Aid Silkscreens and Bee-Emulsion Photography


Artist Matthew Brandt will have his first solo show in New York starting tomorrow. Look for Taste Tests in Color, a series of multi-layered silkscreens made with edible inks of cotton candy, Kool-Aid, mouthwash, and pills.

Also keep an eye out for Honeybees, for which Brandt collected hundreds of dead and sick bees on the coast of California and photographed them using a nineteenth-century gum-bichromate printing process. Brandt’s show opens tomorrow and runs through July 20 at the Yossi Milo Gallery in Chelsea.
