Jules de Balincourt, the artist known for his figurative paintings, opened his first solo show at the Bowery space of Salon 94. The exhibition centers around six large paintings which illustrate the artist’s attempt to “address the uncertainties of contemporary human life.” The crowded gallery scene at the opening included the likes of new age futurist Daniel Pinchbeck, who arrived to peruse the suitably transcendental paintings, as well as art world stalwarts like Bill Powers of Half Gallery and the artist Huma Bhabha. The artist hosted a private party following the opening at his studio in Bushwick, requiring a fleet of buses to whisk the gallery crowd including Lily Kwong and artist Sebastian Black to and fro. Partygoers dined on a sumptuous pig roast feast prepared by Verde Coal Oven, accompanied by libations from Bushwick’s perpetual favorite, Tandem bar. Below are some shots from the nights festivities.
