Openings: Alex Gross – “Future Tense” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/openings-alex-gross-future-tense-jonathan-levine-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/openings-alex-gross-future-tense-jonathan-levine-gallery/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 23:14:40 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=264115 Alex Gross Levine AM 25

Earlier this month, Alex Gross (interviewed) presented a new body of work at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York, site of his last showing in the Big Apple in 2012 (covered). As we saw in our studio visit with the Los Angeles-based painter last month, much of the new work continued to delve into mankind's present course in history as we have become inundated with advertising, propaganda, and new technology. As has often been seen in his work before, the beautifully rendered portraiture often featured layers of repeating motifs like Candy Crush candies, organic elements, and floating heads, as well as symbols of commercialism in the products being used or consumed. Rounding out the show were more additions to his cabinet card series where he cleverly modifies the original photos to recognizable characters of pop culture and history. Discuss Alex Gross here.]]>

Upcoming: Katrin Fridriks – “Stendhal Syndrome” @ Circle Culture Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/upcoming-katrin-fridriks-stendhal-syndrome-circle-culture-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/upcoming-katrin-fridriks-stendhal-syndrome-circle-culture-gallery/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 19:48:34 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=264164 kf_berlin2

On the 21st of November, Katrin Fridriks will be opening her exhibition with Circle Culture Gallery in Germany. After a successful London show with Lazarides (covered), being included in a big The 20th Century Masterpieces exhibition in Seoul, and taking part at recent Istanbul, Vienna and Paris art fairs, the Icelandic artist is back in Berlin for her first solo there in three years. Titled Stendhal Syndrome after a series of works which are named and inspired by this unusual psychosomatic disorder, the works created for this show are focused on an almost infinite macro aspect of her works. As such, the main installation Perception of the Stendhal Syndrome comprises of one of her large-scale paintings and a custom-made sculptural magnifying glass, giving the observers a chance to explore and experience her work at a whole new level. Also, seen from the teaser photos the artist and the gallery have been sharing on social medias, the exhibition will include a lot of monochromatic works, including her first b/w Riding Awareness installation, as well as some new pieces on reflective paper. The works will be on view for 3 months, until February 14th 2015, when Fridriks will participate with a major installation at the Venice Biennale 2015, in the context of the Global Art Affairs Foundation at Palazzo Bemb .

Known for their big scale murals (they're just finishing their latest one on a eight story building in Rome), the artists created mainly large canvases for this show.

The new body of work will also include several new drawings by Sainer created with pencil and white crayon. Discuss Etam Cru here.]]>

Continuing their ongoing art program, Urban Forms Gallery in Lodz, Poland recently invited in Nunca to add his mark on the city. Traveling a long way from his native Brazil, the street artist painted some tribal figures peaking through the foliage, rendered with his signature crosshatching strokes. If you take a close look, you can see him taking advantage of the architectural cues by incorporating a window into his mural. Photo credit: Michal Biezynski. Discuss Nunca here.]]>
