AM recently brought you a glimpse of Matthew Feyld’s installation coming together at his two concurrent solo shows in Sweden at Krets and Neon.

Both shows have since opened, and as we suggested may happen, Feyld was let loose to assemble a large freestanding installation at Neon.

Check out a preview of Christina Empedocles’ latest body of work, titled “As Evidenced”, to premiere this Friday at Denver’s David B. Smith Gallery. The charming works by Empedocles lures you in with a 3D feel created by her technique of rendering everyday objects on paper.

The show opens this Friday […]
One of the finest galleries in Los Angeles, Regen Projects, recently opened a show of “New Paintings” by Lari Pittman. The vibrant, bright, vivid, and colorful paintings include a mixture of abstraction and figuration, each one intricate and expertly painted.

Check out the show for yourself before it goes down Oct. 23. More after the jump…
