After sharing the first set of photos from Urban Nation for the 8th phase (curated by StolenSpace) of their public arts program featuring Shepard Fairey, D*Face, Cyrcle., and Word To Mother painting four columns of a building, we now turn our attention to Maya Hayuk.

A little while ago, we published an article with Kai & Sunny where we sat down for an interview ahead of their showing in San Francisco at the 886 Geary Gallery entitled The Matter Of Time. We now have photos to share from the London-based duo's exhibition as well as shots of the work from Ryan De La Hoz who showed jointly with them. For this show, Kai & Sunny focused on the passage of time while De La Hoz had dissent as the major theme of his pieces. Discuss Kai & Sunny here. Discuss Ryan De La Hoz here.]]>

You may remember awhile back, we shared a video from artist John Knuth and his unique form of markmaking. By feeding houseflies pigments and then allowing them to run through part of their life cycles on canvas on site at the David B. Smith Gallery in Denver, the Los Angeles-based artist was able to create some abstract paintings through his little assistants' labor. Nothing Without Providence, a reference to the Colorado state motto, runs through July 10th.]]>

Openings: Masakatsu Sashie – “Blind Box” @ KP Projects // MKG http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/06/openings-masakatsu-sashie-blind-box-kp-projects-mkg/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/06/openings-masakatsu-sashie-blind-box-kp-projects-mkg/#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 19:18:49 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=279404 DSC04068

Just this last Saturday night, Masakatsu Sashie was at KP Projects / MKG presenting some new works in the project room, complementing Jeff Soto’s exhibition in the main space. Entitled Blind Box, the series of oil paintings and drawings centered on the Japanese artist's striking spheres of manmade objects. The suspended orbs are beautifully rendered and are overlaid over urban environments speaking to ideas of globalism and universality. Take a look at more photos of the opening below...

Previews: Jonathan Yeo – “Exposure” @ Circle Culture Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/06/previews-jonathan-yeo-exposure-circle-culture-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2015/06/previews-jonathan-yeo-exposure-circle-culture-gallery/#comments Tue, 30 Jun 2015 17:30:13 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=279393 jonathan_yeo5

Opening on the 10th of July, Exposure will be Jonathan Yeo's second show with Circle Culture Gallery and the first time he is showing works in Hamburg. The exhibition will primarily consist of his infamous Leaf Works, created using the artist’s distinctive form of pornographic collage. Yeo started the this series in 2008, displaying them in New York and Los Angeles, but this show will be the first, and possibly the last time these pieces are shown together as a coherent body of work. The idea behind these works is to explore the "representations of the body and the proliferation of pornography in the media" with the series starting with a portrait of the former American President George W. Bush in 2007. The Leaf Works constantly play with viewer’s expectations and perception through transformation of form and subject. While innocent at first, the falling leaves on closer inspection reveal themselves as fragmented genitalia and sexual acts taken from pornography magazines. This concept comments on pornography’s place in society, the ways imagery is read by the public, and how it is affected by it, while continuing to explore Yeo’s fascination with representations of the human body and identity.

Just closing over the weekend at the SFAQ [Project] Space, the gallery space of the magazine, was a show entitled Highlights From Past SFAQ [Projects] 2012–2015.

These eleven artists are Alexandre Arrechea Arrechea, Chris Burden, Amy Franceschini, Paul Kos, Tom Marioni, Sean McFarland, Mark Mulroney, Barry McGee (seen above), Guy Overfelt, Rafael Rozendaal and Tom Sachs.
