Preview: Josh Keyes “Sprout” @ David B. Smith Gallery

He’s back – after a sold out showing at Ambach & Rice last year, Josh Keyes moves to tackle the Rockies at the David B. Smith Gallery in Denver. As hinted in our studio visit, the new show “Sprout” deals with the ever present tension between nature and the urban landscape. Josh’s new body of work draws on themes from Alan Weisman’s book “The World Without Us,” which illustrates Mother Nature reclaiming the Earth’s man-made structures and locales. The show will feature the largest Keyes painting (seen above) […]

Preview: Heidi Taillefer & Mike Davis @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Here’s a little preview of two artists which have shows opening at Joshua Liner Gallery next weekend. Both their artistic styles look to stretch the imagination of the viewers and challenge their intellects. Heidi Taillefer’s (above) bizarre yet fantastic paintings throw our senses into a strange world where the nature and science seamlessly integrate. On the other hand, Mike Davis (below) has works that makes us ponder the numerous themes and symbolism that are represented through the subjects and objects that are showcased in his […]

Openings: Andy Kehoe – “Living Twilight” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Andy Kehoe opened his first NYC solo “Living Twilight” at Jonathan Levine Gallery alongside Souther Salazar (covered). Through his style of detailed majestic landscapes and rich autumn hues, Kehoe was able to capture the essence of twilight. We also enjoyed his customary detailed man-beasts isolated in his beautiful serene locations. Kehoe’s “fantasy-esqe” style also gave us a sense of a storybook childhood nostalgia. After the Saturday opening of both shows, AM joined Andy and Souther for the official after-party in classic Levine fashion! Check out the pics and a […]

Check the hot pictures that Molly Crabapple sent to us after the jump…

Openings: Souther Salazar – “Last Year’s Man” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

Souther Salazar opened his show “Last Year’s Man” at Jonathan Levine Gallery last weekend with a huge body of quality works. We were completely overwhelmed by the various mediums/media that entranced our senses. Known for his melancholy characters that seem simple at first glance, further inspection reveals a veritable “world within a world” complexity. Souther seemed to have the audience in mind when creating his works, as there was literally something to appeal to almost every art enthusiast. There were large wood panels, a video […]
