20150322162836-plat_6 Private and Confidential  
by
Mark Stammers at AE Contemporary Art Gallery > London
June 27th - July 11th
Posted 6/30/15

This exhibition is called Private and Confidential, the pieces are beautifully framed prints, that vibrate with luminous colour and luscious brush strokes, these seductive effects give a warm and enticing atmosphere to the imagery, but underneath is a certain and sudden shock as the mind realises the figurative imagery that challenges the imagination and beckons satire and paradox, and the cartoon, these seem to rent through the surface of appearances.....perhaps to comfort the knowing viewer wi...

I have been looking for the right space and group of people to share my work with for the last 2 years. I have now found that space and am excited to share a new body of work that includes, the beginning of many new series of works. The planetary series, The Vision Quest series, the Lazer series, new miniature art books and of course some of my classics, Pixel Perfect, Angel Hearts and if time permits perhaps a new mermiad and new ballerina. The clock is ticking - Namaste. [more]

20150528072328-s Will Benedict's Sordid Americana  
by
Will Benedict at Bortolami Gallery > New York
June 11th - August 1st
Posted 6/29/15

The thematic centerpiece of Paris-based artist Will Benedict’s solo show at Bortolami is The Bed That Eats, a six-minute animated video with music by Michigan-based noise duo Stare Case. The soundtrack opens with electronic scrawl, an aimless bass melody, and occasional shakes of a maraca. The video, meanwhile, portrays an undressed bed, hyperrealistic and monochromatic, in an empty windowless room. When Stare Case vocalist Nate Young’s voice pierces through the hitherto sparse, inst... [more]

20150518151720-kg-177 City, Garden, Whatever: Kim Gordon and the Search for "New Stuff"  
by
Kim Gordon at 303 Gallery > New York
June 4th - July 25th
Posted 6/19/15

"Let me introduce you," sings Kim Gordon on 2002's "Sympathy for the Strawberry," "since you saw my shadow self / living underneath you." What's underneath the artist's new pieces at 303? Humps of rigid canvas painted with unintelligible words and manicured faux-hedges sit on the gallery floor, while a sparkly crumpled canvas or two hangs on each wall. Indeed, all of the objects create shadows; they look as though they're hiding something, the sole representational piece (a close-up photo of th... [more]

International artist Tom Estes has been invited by curator Rebecca Feiner to act as Honorary Mayor of DEN-City1. Estes describes himself as a “Sci-fi inspired Carnival Sideshow Conceptualist, combining a bare-bones formal conceptualism with an eternally adolescent, DIY comic-prank approach”. Organised with Middlesex University, DEN-City1 is part of The London Festival of Architecture, a month long celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice. I’ m sure I... [more]

at SFAQ [Project Space] > San Francisco
April 24th - April 25th
Posted 4/29/15

I entered the small, unassuming gallery space as a bearded head popped out from the back of the room and said, “Are you here to get your MFA?” “Yes!” I replied cheerfully. Because I was. I read that I could get an MFA in just one day at the Tenderloin Institute of Art, hosted by SFAQ, and I was immediately on board. If showing up was the application process, I was already excelling with flying colors. The man introduced himself as Dean Jeremiah Jenkins, and together... [more]

Adel Gorgy's work in Issues at Arts Guild New Jersey Contemporary art and social activism often swim in the same waters. The connection crosses borders and decades, as creative individuals—in art and literature, performance and song—have given voice, sometimes the only one, to victims of turmoil and iniquities. Issues, an exhibition in which a group of contemporary artists respond to political, social, racial, gender, and economic issues facing the world in recent years opened M... [more]

ABEYANCE Paintings and Works on Paper by Babak Emanuel abeyance (ǝ bāy´ ǝns), n. temporary inactivity, cessation, or suspension. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, Second Edition) There are many layers of meaning and material in Babak Emanuel’s art. His large-scale paintings in this exhibition combine various modes of image making: their first layer may be a field of precisely ruled vertical stripes, painted in surprisingly animated brushstrokes – an odd juxtaposition of predetermi...
