There’s a sort of spiritual and spooky element to Laura Castellanos’s work—it’s as if her paintbrush is divining some message from a god(dess) who is at once benevolent and strange, gaudy and all-seeing, lover of both bright green and blood sacrifice. Castellanos is turning ArtXchange into a giant interactive “bodega,” partially re-creating her truly legendary studio space inside the gallery. The exhibition will include everything from paintings to hand puppets, fine art to toenail clippings (just kidding on that last one). I’ve heard there will be some budget-friendly pieces, so save up and bring a sturdy bag!
