Showing: Brad Downey – ‘Souvenirs’ @ Ruttkowski;68

Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne, Germany recently opened a new solo by American artist Brad Downey. Titled Souvenirs, the show features short videos and a series of everyday objects and utilitarian materials juxtapozed in a new context creating a novel meaning. The work raises issues about everything from identity (with his flags drawings), privacy, to self destruction. His series of works with keys touchbase on the notion of access and security. With his techniques of détournement and re-contextualization, Downey reinterprets banal objects to create revelatory artworks. These act as ‘souvenirs‘ as […]

Publications: JR for NYT Magazine Walking New York Issue

Fashion: Bäst, Paul Insect, and Rostarr for Cocurata

Artists Bäst, Paul Insect, and Rostarr have recently collaborated with a new fashion label, Cocurata, on their inaugural collection. Bringing an urban sensibility to the design, the new line entitled Extraction is a nice start to the company, founded by George Gorrow and George Benias. Their idea was to arrange a “direct exchange between artist and artisan – a street artist working with a jeweler, a sculptor collaborating with a perfumer or a painter creating bespoke, ready to wear pieces – that would result in artwork […]

Upcoming: Joram Roukes – “The Great Beyond” @ StolenSpace

Coming up on May 21st, Joram Roukes will be opening a solo at StolenSpace in London witha new body of work entitled The Great Beyond. The fresh series of surreal oil paintings explores ideas of exploration and escapism, perhaps inspired by the move by the Dutch artist from the Netherlands to Los Angeles in 2013. His style is almost collage-like with complex layers and juxtaposed composition, drawing viewers in with their own interpretations. Discuss Joram Roukes here.
