YOU PEOPLE by johnwilkes The Fairman Family at ARTHOUSE1
August 1st - August 28th
It isn’t often that you get the chance to look into the workings of a family of artists over three generations, laying themselves open to scrutiny and speculation on their relationships. With the age of the artists ranging from the mature seventies to the youthful twenties, the work is bound to be wildly diversified; from the skilled and honed creativity of one generation to the enthusiastic optimism of another, with all sharing a dedication to, and love of, the arts, each exploring and de...

They call it “Marbs.” Some of them do, anyway—not the real deal money; not 'Tony' and 'Mel' Banderas-Griffiths, whose beach-front palace’s lease, quite tragically, outlived their marriage—but the ones who are there for an earthier breed of bacchanal: the drunks, the San Tropez tanners, the motor-mouthed swimsuit babes, the rutting Croyden bucks—and so on, and so forth. Breasts as buoyant as puppies; pectorals as tight as spinster's mouths: the strip on Puerto... [more]
God first spoke to me when I was 8, while sitting in a wooden church pew in a sanctuary that was outfitted like a synagogue. I recall it was during the part in the "Jewish" ( I cannot verify this is actually a traditional Jewish practice, as I have never seen it happen in any subsequent standardized "Jewish" services) service when the Torah is brought out and everyone is singing and holding up their hands in the air reaching to touch the holiness. God's voice came through the retro woofers ( no... [more]

It’s late on a Friday and the Studio Door Gallery on 30th is still going strong for the opening of its national Comicon-inspired show, “Strip: Caricature, Satire and the Funnies.” The caricature artist is working on a couple who looks thrilled to be getting mildly caricaturized and someone is busily adding lines to the communal canvas off in the corner. She is concentrating so hard she barely notices people looking over her shoulder.
The Constitution of the Republic of Korea Article 1 Section 2: “The sovereignty of the Republic of Korea shall reside in the people, and all state authority shall emanate from the people.” Through representation and the re-enactment of narratives from the media, I create paintings, drawings, performances, and videos that criticize the hidden bureaucracy and corruption that disregard the Constitution and limit the democratic freedoms in my home country, South Korea. My artworks make commentar... [more]
