Ironing Opens @ Metro Gallery

Okan and Brian's show, Ironing, featured new (and very different) work by the two boys. Okan's large, abstract paintings move away from his stylized illustrations, so much so that I thought they were Brian's at first glance. Brian, however, featured process pieces, building an old plane from a kit, and a contraption with levers and buttons that corresponded to lights and sounds. As friends, their influence in each other's work is apparent, but doesn't distract from their unique visions.
