Preview: Stella Im Hultberg – “Fragmented” @ London Miles

Next Friday night, March 11th, Stella Im Hultberg (interviewed) will be showing alongside Scott Belacastro at the London Miles Gallery. For her first UK show, she’ll be bringing a collection of paintings entitled “Fragmented”, which looks to feature a return in a way to some of the floating heads she has painted in the past as well as an obsession with hair. We are looking forward to seeing the body of work in its entirety, but for now, take a look at some more preview […]

We should see more from these two Italian artists as the weather heats up and outdoor painting season starts again. Discuss Blu here. Discuss Ericailcane here.

Teaser / Setup: Armory Week ’11 – Jim Houser (Jonathan LeVine booth @ VOLTA)

Showing with Jonathan LeVine at the VOLTA satellite fair (also see Mark Jenkins & Richard Colman) at this year’s Armory Week will be Jim Houser. Judging from all the setup action we see, attendees can look forward to very nice installation which is typical for the Philadelphia-based artist (ie last year’s Subliminal Projects show).  AM loves his quilt-like blocks of imagery and look forward to seeing new symbology added to his lexicon.

Teaser: Kris Lewis @ David B. Smith Gallery

We last talked to Kris Lewis (interviewed) at last year’s Grammy group show which he co-curated and also in 2009 before his show at David B. Smith Gallery. Time flies as he’s scheduled again for a solo exhibition in May at the Colorado showspace with a new body of work; the piece above being the first piece we have seen.  If that is any indication, we are in for a great show.  We’ll have more to follow as the show draws nearer.

Preview: INLE @ Gallery 1988 (Melrose)

Next Thursday, March 11th, the highly anticipated INLE group show will open at Gallery 1988’s Melrose location. Curated by Greg Simkins, the exhibition has been a long time coming for the LA-based artist as much of his work references his childhood favorite, Watership Down, a book that has had a profound impact on him as an artist. Featuring one of the best lineup of artists we have seen in a long time, this is definitely one show you don’t want to miss. Take some time […]

Openings: Clare Rojas – “Inside Bleak” @ PRISM Gallery

Last night, AM attended the jam-packed opening of Clare Rojas’ solo exhibition at the PRISM gallery with what appeared to be the rest of young Hollywood. The San Francisco-based painter and musician impressed with her folk-inspired murals, paintings, wall panels, and the sheer breadth of her work. Filling the expansive architectural space is no small feat, but Rojas did it by further exploring the abstraction she recently started as well as increasing the detail in her figurative work.
