April 28 Puzzle, Puzzle on the Wall

A puzzle within a puzzle in a garage.

Cherry & Lucic is a gallery in a garage created by Eleanor Ford, John Knight and Kyle Raquipiso. They have very occasional shows by regional and international artists.

Tonight they open a show by artist project Henry Codax. The three garage Codax are accompanied by mono prints.

They are large monochrome canvases, mining Les Arts Incohérents monochromes of 130 years ago. Henry Codax is an anonymous artist rumored to be a collaboration between Jacob Kassay and Olivier Mosset. Both artists have denied a connection to Codax. Their artist representative has seeded the unsigned work into international galleries. Some have been purchased. Some have been, or have attempted to be, flipped on the auction market, perhaps on the speculation Kassay, at age 28, has had auction sales at 1.8 million. Puzzles.
