For those amongst us who’ve shared visions of angels, they’ve often taken the form of birds. Winged and weightless, whether they’ve descended to impart a message, or remind us there are greater bounds and reaches to this existence—the visit is always brief—before they’re once again headed skyward into the liminal and indescribable. Robert Nava, a Brooklyn-based artist, has recently encountered angels, but it would appear they are of his own summoning. The Mexico-born painter is currently enjoying his first solo show, Angels, at Vito Schnabel Gallery in New York City. And the work? Well, it’s taking flight of course.
