Showing: Paul Wackers – “New Alphabet” @ Alice Gallery

New Alphabet, a solo from Paul Wackers will be showing through the rest of the week in Brussels at Alice Gallery. His imagery is almost collage-like in the way he puts together everyday objects, plants, and abstract shapes into one cohesive composition. Along with his signature color-filled paintings that can be seen as a modern take on still life portraits, he also produced some pieces that were in black and white.

Openings: Stella Im Hultberg – “Stranger” @ Spoke Art

At the beginning of the month, Spoke Art in San Francisco introduced new works from Stella Im Hultberg (interviewed) in her first solo in four years. Entitled Stranger, the very floral new body of work encompassed many different mediums including oil paintings, loosely rendered watercolor, india ink sketches, as well as sculpture.

She further explains – “There was a lot of ‘heaviness of love’ that I felt since becoming a parent, […]

Openings: EGO & Grady Gordon – “The Time is Never” & “Been Seeing You Around Lately” @ Flatcolor Gallery

Befitting the month known for ghouls and ghosts, Flatcolor Gallery in Seattle welcomed in EGO and Grady Gordon to exhibit new works earlier this month. EGO’s The Time Is Never features characters with enough charming personality to overcome their stereotypical spookiness. Symbology used in several pieces, along with star fields, lends an alien or sci-fi mix to the show. Just up the stairs, Grady Gordon’s prints in Been Seeing You Around Lately offer a look into a mythological world governed by shadows. The less-than-conventional method of […]
