Upcoming: Osgemeos- “Artist in Residence” @ Mattress Factory

Hard at work in Pittsburgh, Osgemeos are well on their way to creating one of their signature immersive installations for the Mattress Factory. If the Brazilian twins’ past work is any indiction, expect a floor to ceiling kaleidoscope of sculptural forms, paintings, and murals featuring their yellow-skinned characters – inspired by hip hop and graffiti culture. The duo’s work will be part of the Artist in Residence fall exhibition opening on September 21st at the museum, which also will include installations from William Earl Kofmehl III, Laleh Mehran, Karina Smigla-Bobinski, and Christina […]

Previews: Jose Parla – “Echo Of Impressions” @ Ben Brown Fine Art (London)

Echo Of Impressions is set to open on October 3rd at the London branch of Ben Brown Fine Arts, a new solo show from Jose Parla. The new large-scale abstract paintings and sculptural pieces from the New York-based artist continue his practice of documenting his observations of the urban space, referencing these memories to create works that mimic the textures and colors of the cityscape. Parla’s work goes deeper than just exploring the “physical impressions left around the city by time and passers-by” as he also taps into […]

Previews: Erik Mark Sandberg – “Interlude” @ Stephanie Chefas Projects

A week from today (September 7th), Stephanie Chefas Projects in Portland will welcome in Erik Mark Sandberg’s Interlude. The Los Angeles-based artist’s work is quite distinctive, an obsession with overly hairy adolescents bathed in various tinges of color acting as his stand-in’s for the evils of our consumer culture. Sandberg’s technique is quite complex, involving a broad range of natural and synthetic materials, producing a difficult to describe catalog of portraiture over the years – refreshed for this show with a focus on the automotive interior including […]

Previews: Luke Chueh – “ANTHROPOMORPHUCKED” @ Corey Helford Gallery

Luke Chueh’s (interviewed) first major show in Los Angeles in over three years will be opening a little over a week from now on September 8th at Corey Helford Gallery. Entitled ANTHROPOMORPHUCKED, the new exhibition will be his most eclectic to date as the locally-based artist has had time to prepare some pieces that have been on his mind for some time now. Along with some of the expected painful situations he puts his cartoonish animal characters in, Chueh also explores some more personal, cultural, and conceptual […]

Previews: Paco Pomet – “Melancholia” @ Richard Heller Gallery

On September 8th, Richard Heller Gallery in Los Angeles will host the opening reception for Paco Pomet’s latest solo show. Entitled Melancholia, the new body of work from Spanish artist once again is built on vintage photos as his source of inspiration which he then alters with some surreal twist. This time around, Pomet plays around with the different effects and affects of light, incorporating the sun and moon into his landscapes with some impossible scenarios. He further explains – “Since my childhood, the observation […]

Previews: Horacio Quiroz – “Polarities” @ Booth Gallery

On September 7th, Horacio Quiroz’s show will open at Booth Gallery in New York, featuring 12 surreal new works on canvas and a large installation with 34 works on paper. Entitled Polarities, the stateside debut exhibition from the Mexican artist introduces his grotesque imagery to art fans in the US, a selection of tortured portraits that hint at the struggles within. He further explains – “My work is a reflection on the human condition, linked intimately to my psychological and therapeutic evolution. I view the body as […]

Showing: Alicia McCarthy & Group Show @ V1 Gallery

For her second showcase with V1 which opened recently in Copenhagen, Alicia McCarthy created a fresh body of work featuring her iconic waving patterns and rainbow-like creations. Painted mostly on found and repurposed objects or faded paper sheets, these hypnotic creations are done using a variety of uncommon art techniques. Often leaving an obvious or hidden personal mark or note, the Mission School stalwart makes unorthodox, personal pieces that expresses her raw urge to create as it relates to her experiences. McCarthy also used this opportunity […]

Previews: Soey Milk – “Inflorescence” @ Corey Helford Gallery

On September 8th, Soey Milk’s second solo show (see 2015) with Corey Helford Gallery opens in Los Angeles. Collectively entitled Inflorescence, the vibrant new body of work features over 20 paintings and drawings (which served as studies for the paintings). The new pieces serve as markers for significant moments in Milk’s life, made all the more personal with her friends as source material (as well as what looks to be some self-portraits). The exhibition also sees the locally-based artist continue to explore the use of embedded objects as a medium, with […]

Upcoming: YESNIK x Jaybo – “For Better or Worse” (LA Popup)

From September 7-9, YESNIK and Jaybo will be holding a joint popup exhibition in Los Angeles at F-U (For the Unconventional). The two artists have collaborated in the past before (see Amsterdam 2017), sharing a background in 80s and 90s underground street culture and design and now taking similar artistic paths towards an increasingly abstract aesthetic. For his part, the San Diego-based YESNIK will be presenting new pieces from his recent series of suggestively figurative compositions, created from textures, colors, and shapes taken from the natural […]

Showing: Javier Calleja – “Fake is the future” @ Galerie Zink

Currently with Galerie Zink in Hamburg (Barlach Halle K), Javier Calleja has a show on view entitled Fake is the future. Including canvasses, works on paper and mural paintings from the Spanish artist, the solo features cartoonish portraiture certainly inspired from his time working under the tutelage of Yoshitomo Nara. Open to the public for a few days only, the exhibition sees Calleja put in some time adding spheres of colors to the walls that match up with the backgrounds of his paintings, visually merging them with the space. Photo […]
