Riusuke Fukahori Liner AM 25

Openings: Riusuke Fukahori – “The Painted Breath” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

Last month, the Joshua Liner Gallery in Chelsea presented all new works from Yokohama-based artist Riusuke Fukahori in his New York solo debut. The self-described goldfish fanatic keeps many of them around his studio for inspiration as well as considers them a metaphor for his life. Utilizing a resin technique that took over 8 years to perfect, the layered pieces almost look too real to be paintings, especially when presented in containers that are often associated with the fish in real life. Take a look at more photos as well […]
AJ Fosik Levine AM 15

Openings: AJ Fosik – “Against The Infinite” @ Jonathan LeVine

A couple weeks ago, AM stopped by the Jonathan LeVine Gallery to check out new works from AJ Fosik collectively entitled Against The Infinite. Inspired by The Denial of Death, a 1973 Pulitzer Prize-winning work of psychology and philosophy by Ernest Becker, the new sculptural works explore the idea that humanity has an “inherent struggle between its dualistic nature—a physical self and a symbolic self.” Along with free-standing works, there is also an installation piece from the Portland-based artist that is comprised of 30 individual animal faces […]

David McCracken – “Diminish and Ascend” @ Sculpture by the Sea

In Bondi, Australia, at the annual Sculpture by the Sea festival, David McCracken had a piece on view entitled Diminish and Ascend. The steps made from aluminum jut out on the side of a hill facing the sea and plays with perspectives to make it look like a never-ending path into the sky. Take a look at photos of the piece in different lighting and at various angles below… Photo credit: Paul David (front image), the rest specified at the bottom of image. Via My Modern Met.

Daniel Arsham Pharrell Standard AM 20

Openings: Daniel Arsham x Pharrell Williams @ The Standard East

Just this passed September 11th, New York-based artist Daniel Arsham and music producer Pharrell Williams unveiled their first collaborative endeavor at The Standard East Village Hotel in New York City. The result of their joint venture materialized as four re-creations of a Casino MT-500 keyboard, which is the first instrument on which Pharrell ever created music on. Like previous work that Arsham has done, the sculptures (made from different materials which included crystal, volcanic ash, and steel) are created to look like found artifacts that […]

Openings: “Potse 68″ @ Circle Culture Gallery

Berlin’s Circle Culture Gallery recently opened their third gallery space, in addition to its other two venues in Berlin (Mitte and Hamburg). After “twelve years of fusing fine art with pop art and subcultural art,” expansion to a new, 560 sqm former warehouse on Potsdamer Strasse was a logical next step for the gallery. To celebrate this big event, they put together a huge group show featuring works from their impressive list of represented artists such as Katrin Fridriks, Maya Hayuk or Aaron Rose, with the addition of […]
Julia Chiang Bill Brady KC AM 05

Openings: Julia Chiang – “That Side, This Side, No Side” @ Bill Brady KC

Hailing from New York, Julia Chiang immerses the Midwest this fall with her work via Kansas City’s Bill Brady Gallery. Upon entry to the showspace, you are welcomed by several large “burst” paintings (seen in our studio visit) drawing you directly into the voided spaces within them. Chiang also shows off some new pieces consisting of large scale “fence” paintings alongside her more familiar glazed ceramic “drops” surrounding the space like altars. Julia keeps your attention and eyes confused with “A Word, Your Word #1,2” where she […]
