1xRUN Presents ASKEW ONE’s “Entropy” At Inner State Gallery.

Join us in welcoming New Zealand artist ASKEW ONE to Detroit on August 23rd from 7-10pm.

 Through this new body of work Askew One further refines his unique method of painting portraits where the medium becomes the metaphor for a much bigger conversation. 

The portrait is the device used to represent immense entities of barely contained energy that have reached an entropic state only moments from a cataclysmic event. It is a discussion about existence and more specifically the fragility of all things – our incessant quest for balance and harmony when all things eventually deteriorate or revert to a state of chaos.


”Detroit started this whole train of thought during my first visit in 09. I think the metaphor of Entropy extends to Detroit as well. The Entropy in Detroit’s case was Human expanse and industry. This work is optimistic though, like Detroit. It’s about new beginnings.” –Askew
