Showing: Ian Francis – “10,000 Years From Now” @ Lazarides (Rathbone Place)

A couple weekends ago, London showgoers had the opportunity to enjoy a selection of new paintings from Ian Francis (featured) at the Rathbone Place location of Lazarides. 10,000 Years From Now is a pretty incredible new body of work featuring the Bristol-based artist’s masterful blend of the photo-realism & the abstract while touching on imagery that included seductive characters & ghostly landscapes utilizing a beautiful palette and intriguing titles. For those interested, also take a look at a studio visit we did leading up the […]

Showing: Michael Page – “Elan Vital” @ Shooting Gallery

Showing through tomorrow in San Francisco at the White Walls Gallery is Michael Page’s (interviewed) solo show Élan Vital. Tackling issues of evolution, the development of organisms, spirituality, and the infinite variations of consciousness, the locally-based painter has created a collection of works that bring viewers into his dream world featuring an explosion of colors and a melding of protoplasmic energies. More photos from the show taken by John Casey after the jump…

Showing: “Vinyl Revisionists” @ Warner Brothers

The art of the album cover has a longstanding cultural and historic impact, both on contemporary society and new contemporary art. From the psychedelic album covers of the sixties to the gritty urban photographic hip hop album covers of the 90s, few mediums have been as unheralded yet impactful as these visual interpretations of the defining sounds of each generation. Warner Brothers Records in Burbank has recently opened a group show inviting artists to reinterpret their favorite albums and covers from the label’s expansive catalog. […]

Showing: Nicola Verlato – “How The West Was Won” @ Jonathan Levine

Recently at Jonathan LeVine in New York, Nicola Verlato opened up his solo exhibition entitled How The West Was Won alongside a solo from EVOL (covered). The series of new oil paintings from the Italian-born, Los Angeles-based artist show a talent for dramatic compositions and attention to detail that remind the viewer of old master paintings but remixed for modern time. The work follows a thematic tone that “refers to the culture clash between monotheism and polytheism throughout human history, a battle that the artist believes to […]

Showing: Gregory Euclide – “Nature Out There” @ Nevada Museum of Art

Currently at the Nevada Museum of Art, Gregory Euclide has a collection of works on display collectively entitled Nature Out There. Reminiscent of another artist regularly covered here on AM, Adam Neate (interviewed), Euclide has progressed his work to where there is an added dimensionality to the paintings he creates. Blending natural and found materials with his rendered scraps, the Minnesota-based artist creates encapsulated worlds where “pristine notions of landscape meet the reality of our current environment.” More photos after the jump…

Showing: Kelsey Brookes – “Meditations on Symmetry” @ Compound Project

After a showing in the UK and a refreshing vacation in Hawaii, Kelsey Brookes (featured) has returned to Cali to work on a fresh set of paintings. The new body of work is currently on display at Compound Project in Malibu and is entitled Meditations on Symmetry. Although the pieces still maintain the vibrancy and love for patterns seen in previously, Brookes seems to be exploring a more abstract side of his oeuvre. More photos after the jump…

Showing: Armsrock – “Stedfortrædere” @ MOHS Exhibit

A couple weeks ago, AM dropped by MOHS Exhibit in Copenhagen to take a look at a new collection of work from Armsrock (interviewed) for his latest show. After previewing some of the paintings in his studio recently, it was nice to see his artistic vision realized on the walls of the space alongside work from Sif Itona Westerberg in their joint show entitled Stedfortrædere (translated to Delegates). The exhibition ends April 21st, so you still have plenty of time to check it out yourself if […]

Showing: Ron Ulicny – “New Works” @ Spoke Art

Earlier this month, the Spoke Art Gallery opened its doors to a solo exhibition from Portland-based artist Ron Ulicny. His collection of New Works feature familiar objects that have been modified in novel ways to give new meaning to the pieces. The show included sixteen new sculptural creations, each challenging the viewer to find new purpose in the transformed items while showing off Ulicny’s humor and wit. More photos after the jump…

Showing: Claire Hind & Gary Winters – Kong Lear @ Bar Lane Studios

AM stopped by Bar Lane Studios in York to take a look at Claire Hind & Gary Winters’ collaborative installation and exhibition entitled Kong Lear. The title, and also the subject matter is a juxtaposition of imagery from the celebrated tale of King Kong interwoven with texts from King Lear, and also includes new writing. Add to the mix a dash of Freudian ‘slips’, and you find yourself firmly in place in the world of Kong Lear. Gorilla Mondays have been staged by the artists […]

Showing: Armsrock – “Should The Light Not Take Us” @ Galleri Profilen

At the Galleri Profilen in Denmark, Armsrock (interviewed) currently has a new body of work on display entitled Should The Light Not Take Us. Continuing to develop his gallery repertoire, the thoughtful street artist is working again in the same large-scale that impressed us during his showing at the Vejle Museum of Art back in November. More photos after the jump…
