Opening: Dain, Various & Gould @ Brooklynite

Last night, AM visted Bed-Stuy vanguard Brooklynite Gallery for the opening of Time Machine, featuring work by artists Dain (Brooklyn) and Various and Gould (Berlin). Dain’s offerings consisted of his characteristic colorful images of 1920’s glamour girls. Although similar to his posters wheatpasted throughout NYC, the gallery work is more ellaborate than previously seen, with more layering and detail. Various and Gould collaborated on silkscreen prints on canvas, wood and paper of chimeras of celebrity facial features superimposed with stereotype words. These IDENTIKITS are meant […]

Teaser: Kukula @ Copronason

Judging from an early look at Kukula’s body of work for her upcoming show at Copronason, perhaps we will be seeing more of the softer side from her (which we first noticed in her works for her last solo at Thinkspace). Gone are the carved out organs, gimp suits, and tortured stuffed animals… Sounds like her work was quite morbid in the past…maybe it was, but if you have ever seen it in person, you would agree that no matter the subject material, she has […]

Preview: Andy Kehoe @ Black Maria Gallery

Andy Kehoe’s work initially caught our eye because of his masterful creation of desolate yet beautiful landscapes that capture the essence of human loneliness.  Seeing his creatures in the isolated environments prompts us think of how tiny we really are compared to the vastness of nature.   What makes his work even more interesting after the first glance is that his seemingly peaceful scenes are contrasted by the undertones of unease and violence in his characters and their actions. A three-person show called “The Wonder” opens […]

Openings: Tim Biskup @ Addict Galerie

Last Saturday, Tim Biskup’s show “O/S (Operating System)” opened at Addict Galerie in Paris (previously posted). Although no stranger to international travel, he appeared to be excited to be exhibiting in France when we talked to him at Baby Tattooville. The works turned out pretty amazing… continuing his “pixelated” style and pairing each painting with a custom pedestal. Priced at $6500-$15,500, we believe some of these are still available for purchase. Check out all the photos after the jump.

Preview: Lola @ Corey Helford

“The Wondermental” is the title of Lola’s upcoming show at Corey Helford Gallery on October 25th. The theme for the show is an “enchanting visual adventure about a young boy’s journey into the unknown.” Perhaps inspired by experiences as a mother, her paintings always feature children in various fairytale settings. To fully appreciate her shows, one must take in every painting as piece of a puzzle that when put together form an intricate story. Her attention to detail is amazing and inevitably our attention is […]

Preview: Aya Uekawa @ Kravets/Wehby

New York-based Japanese artist Aya Uekawa opens her latest show tonight at Chelsea’s Kravets Wehby, entitled It’s a Really Small World. What Uekawa can do with pattern and composition is truly amazing, making it no wonder that so many collectors are keeping a close eye on her career. The show is up until December 6, 2008. More pics of Uekawa’s work (from the gallery’s Web site), after the jump.

Openings: Ai Yamaguchi @ Robert & Tilton

We were wondering what the large wooden installation (previously posted) was that Ai Yamaguchi was working on for her Roberts & Tilton show. Well, the photo you see above is the mural inside which could only be accessed by climbing in the structure (“shoelessly” we might add). More photos of the opening after the jump.

Teaser: Faile @ Vauxhall, London

Looks like the Faile collective is working on something a little different for their upcoming show in London. They will be taking over an abandoned schoolhouse (seem to be a common Lazarides tactic nowadays) in Vauxhall for a ten-day project with the opening planned for November 7th. Their show, entitled “Lost the Glimmering Shadows” will be incorporating some Native American imagery along with their distinctive torn poster look. This image as well as the one after the jump show them hard at work…

Teaser: KAWS @ Gering & Lopez

Looks like KAWS has gone back to work after his successful Miami exhibit because we noticed a new painting on the Gering & Lopez KAWS exhibition page. This painting is entitled “Perils” and is a pretty large at 68″ x 86.”  Since it hasn’t appeared before, we believe this piece will be at the upcoming November exhibit in New York.   We can’t begin to imagine how much a painting of this size would command (or what they would price it at) considering we know […]

Preview: Shepard Fairey @ Irvine Contemporary

Continuing with our coverage of Shepard Fairey’s pending trip to DC, we now have the images that will be exhibited at the Regime Change Starts at Home show at the Irvine Contemporary Gallery.  Shepard will have 9 new paintings and collage on paper pieces for the exhibition.  Included is the LAST of three unique hand stenciled collaged portraits of Barack Obama’s campaign icon: “Hope”. The show opens October 18th  (6-9 pm) with an afterparty by invitation to follow (10-12 pm) with all 3 artists: Shepard […]
