This past weekend, AM caught the opening of the Date Farmers, Eric White (interviewed), Nicola Verlato and Fulvio Di Piazza at Jonathan Levine Gallery. The two shows were unique as it touched on both ends of the spectrum in terms of dimensions with all the way from large scale museum size works to a cornucopia of medium to smaller size pieces. First, we saw the immense paintings from “Three Handed” which featured Eric White, Nicola Verlato and Fulvio Di Piazza. Eric’s breathtaking piece “Massacre of the Innocents” measured 4×16 and is the biggest piece he’s ever taken on.
The Date Farmer’s show, “Smother Your Mother” (previewed), took a different approach. Their large body of work consisted of over 50 smaller sized pieces utilizing their signature pop reference symbolism and found materials to overtake the viewers.
