Preview: Colin Christian – “Inner Space” @ Opera Gallery (London)

It looks like Colin Christian (whose art was recently featured in Kayne West’s concert) is planning to go big with his upcoming show in London at the Opera Gallery. “Inner Space” will feature Colin’s full-bodied sculptures of luscious girls in what look to be tight latex suits – completely understandable as he used to make latex clothing for fetish stores around the country before he started creating his own art. It also looks like he’ll be going large scale with his signature head sculptures (seen […]

Openings: The LOST Underground Art Show @ Gallery 1988 (LA)

AM stopped by earlier this month to check out the “LOST” show at Gallery 1988 (LA) only to be confronted by a long line of fans that lined up overnight as well as a media frenzy that ensued. We did manage to get inside and snap some pics of the artwork eventually for all to enjoy. It was nice to see many of the characters we love remixed and reinterpreted into paintings that were often subtle and well conceived. Take a look after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Joshua Liner Gallery @ Scope

One of the booths we were really impressed with during Art Basel Week was Joshua Liner Gallery’s showcase at SCOPE. It was a diverse group reflecting some of his successes this year from represented artists such as Matsu (interviewed), Kris Kuksi, and Evan Hecox. In addition, the show offered a sneak preview of the tremendous talent in stored for the coming year with works by Dave Kinsey, Dave Kassan, Tony Kanali, Tiffany Bozik, and Travis Louie (interviewed.

Video: Dzine @ Bass Museum of Art

Vernissage TV was on hand to document one of the shows we enjoyed during our visit to Miami for Art Basel Week. As we previously mentioned, Chicago- based artist Dzine brought his sculptures, paintings and installations for an exhibition at the Bass Museum of Art with a custom chandelier and “ghost bike” being some of the standout pieces. Take a look as he walks through and explains his work. Discuss Art Basel week here.

Showing: Cai Guo-Qiang – “Hanging Out In The Museum” @ Taipei Fine Arts Museum

Currently showing at the Taipei Fine Arts Museum is a major exhibition from gunpowder artist extraordinaire Cai Guo Qiang. As you can see in the video above, Qiang demonstrated his explosive technique by creating some of his signature pieces (also seen in the “Stages” show) in person. Far from a one trick pony, Qiang brings with him a body of work similar to what we witnessed at the Guggenheim in New York last year with his “hanging car” installation, “headlong rush of wolves” installation, “sunken […]

Video: Kris Kuksi – “Plague Parade: Opus 2”

On a return trip to take in Kris Kuksi’s show “Beast Anthology” (covered) at Joshua Liner Gallery, we decided to take a quick video of one of the pieces to give you a better perspective of how incredibly detailed his work is. The piece we chose was “Plague Parade: Opus 2,” one of the larger pieces in the show at 42 x 62 x 16 inches. Take a look at all the mixed media assemblage goodness of this piece in the recorded footage above. Discuss […]

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Gladstone Gallery

Gladstone Gallery, one of the most prestigious galleries in the United States, led by Barbara Gladstone, probably the second most famous art dealer next to Larry Gagosian, had a power-packed booth at Art Basel.  It featured photographs, paintings, and sculptures by some of the best artists in world, including Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Elizabeth Peyton. See more images from the booth after the jump…

Basel Week Miami ’09: Aqua Fair

This year’s Basel Week Miami wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Aqua Art Miami fair in the Wynwood district. Chock full of visual goodies from galleries we know and love to some newly discovered ones that are now on the AM radar. It was treat to experience some great art at this fair. Check out all the images including several pieces from Jin Young Yu (interviewed & seen above) after the jump.

Basel Week Miami ’09: Pulse Fair

Sometimes, it takes stepping out of your comfort zone to get a fresh perspective on the way one views art. That is what Pulse did for us in Miami. From the moment we entered the fair, we noticed many galleries and artists that we weren’t accustomed to viewing. We constantly found ourselves stopping and asking more questions about “what is that?” and “who made it?” than any other fair during Art Basel Week. A truly rewarding experience. Check out all the visual nuggets we dug up after […]

Basel Week Miami ’09 – Jen Stark @ SCOPE

The AM crew stopped by the SCOPE Fair to take a look at the geometric paper sculptures by Jen Stark during Art Basel Week. The Miami-based artist was showing off her eye-catching pieces of what appear to be precise paper cutouts at the Carol Jazzar Gallery booth. Even after staring at her work for a long while, we still could not really figure out how she was able produce such complex creations. See for yourself, after the jump…
