Last month at Art Stage Singapore (covered), our attention was drawn to photos of this exquisite sculpture from French artist Fabien Mérelle shown at the Edouard Malingue Gallery booth). The piece entitled Pentateuque features a man bearing the weight of the world on his shoulders (in the form of an elephant),  a translation of a drawing by the same artist into a three-dimensional form. The sculpt was created wit resin, paint, hair and fabric, and stands only 30 x 27 x 12 inches. For those who liked this work, […]

Later this month, the ARCOMadrid fair will see Eli Ridgeway display all new works from Matthew Palladino (interviewed) at their booth. The SF-based gallery recently hosted Palladino’s solo show in 2012 (covered) as well as repped him at the Texas Contemporary Art Fair in 2011 (covered), so they are well aware of the hypnotic quality of the NY-based painter’s work as well as his intriguing plays on perspective. This latest set of paintings is not any different as they all feature clever distortions of reality and oftentimes plays on pop […]

Another booth we enjoyed at the main fair this year during Basel Week Miami was the work on display from Paul Kasmin Gallery featuring an eclectic mix of artists like Ivan Navarro (above), Kenny Scharf, Walton Ford, David LaChapelle, Erik Parker, and more. In particular, we enjoyed the special section from Navarro which included a set of optical illusion-based works from the Impenetrable series (made from fluorescent lights, resin, mirror) that mesmerized viewers as they peered down into the “depths.” Discuss Basel Week Miami here.

We’ve touched on the work of Kazuki Takamatsu before here on AM in a couple group shows, but seeing an entire series of works at the Gallery Tomura booth at SCOPE Miami (highlights here) really piqued our interest. The Japanese artist based in Sendai combines the use of computer imaging with traditional techniques to create eerie ghostlike characters through the medium of acrylic and gouache. The use of depth mapping generates a topographical effect to the portraiture (with some similarities to the the work of El Mac) […]

During our stroll through the seemingly endless array of booths and artwork during Art Basel in Miami, we were stopped dead in our tracks by the solo from the late Jiro Takamatsu at McCaffrey Fine Art. The influential Japanese artist was known as a writer, sculptor, painter and printmaker with this showing focusing in on his famous shadow pieces. Although the booth was dominated by his large-scale portraiture, we were particularly drawn to his smaller works like the key shadows hanging from a hook as well as a dollhouse […]

As you saw from our coverage and cover image for CONTEXT Art Miami, we were quite taken by an artist new to AM – Jorge Santos. Showing with 101/Exhibit as well as Evan Lurie Gallery, the American painter takes inspiration from the political turmoil and struggles of his formative years in Angola and Portugal to create surreal and brooding scenes, a seemingly frozen snapshot in some fantastic story. With his works overflowing with intriguing characters and details, we found ourselves continually discovering new things as […]

After posting up the photos from Amy Sol’s (interviewed) solo during this year’s SCOPE art fair in Miami, it’s now time to share the other artist featured in the Thinkspace booth – Brian Viveros. We caught an early glimpse at the new body of work, entitled War of the Roses, during a studio visit last month, and now fair-goers were able to enjoy what we had experienced – femme fatale portraiture with a Spanish twist and plenty costumed goodness. Take a look at the rest of the photos below… […]

The only thing you need to know about Matthew Marks Gallery is that it represents Jasper Johns, (arguably) the greatest living artist in the world. Looking further, you will see that the gallery also represents other top artists as well. Its booth at Art Basel this year includes an orange, two-panel painting by Ellsworth Kelly, new sculptures by Charles Ray and Katharina Fritsch, three recent paintings by Paul Sietsema, new sculptures by Darren Almond, as well as pieces by Willem de Kooning, Luigi Ghirri, Thomas Demand, […]
