Taking your temperature: Judith Supine in Dirt Mansion at English Kills in Brooklyn. (All photos by C-M.)
Street art madman Judith Supine opened up his latest show, Dirt Mansion, at English Kills Gallery in Brooklyn over the weekend. Every available surface was covered with Supine’s over-sized collages, many of which went floor-to-ceiling. There was also 3-D installation work, including some trippy looking birdhouses, and one piece which included a small pool of goldfish. (They were delicious!) The show is up until June 8th.
