Sixpack Projects at Phantom Galleries Long Beach

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
SixPack Projects is pleased to present the work of large-scale painters Eric Jones and Kevin Stewart Magee. This collaboration reveals similarities between the two artists as well as their singularity. Jonesʼ breaks his subject into fragments creating a psychological portrait that both reveals and conceals; Stewart-Magee depicts his subjects holistically, imbuing them with a sense of spirituality and power. Through scale, color and style, Jones and Stewart-Magee offer two different approaches to the human condition.
