Arrested Motion http://arrestedmotion.com "the aim of every artist is to arrest motion..." -Faulkner Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:00:55 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 Streets: Pejac (Istanbul) http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/streets-pjeac-istanbul/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/streets-pjeac-istanbul/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 20:00:55 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=263437 pejac_istanbul8

Spanish artist Pejac (introduced) was recently in Istanbul where he created a triptych of pieces in Uskudar, the Asian part of Istanbul. The idea was to create an "eye trap" that will emphasize the strength and the illusion of the works by creating a sort of physical bond between them. Titled Lock, Poster and Shutters, the works where made between October 5th to 10th, using acrylic, sand paper and graphite. These signature artistic tools when modifying the given surface and creating such mirages. Always being focused on the urban context of his works, and the ways of distorting or altering its reality, the artist painted familiar architectural elements of the area, while adding a surreal twist to them. With windows and locks symbolizing barrier or connections between spaces, these visual interventions are literally connections between Pejac's witty imagination and the real world they are created in. Discuss Pejac here.]]>

Showing: Thierry Noir – “LA Retrospective” @ Howard Griffin Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/showing-thierry-noir-la-retrospective-howard-griffin-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/showing-thierry-noir-la-retrospective-howard-griffin-gallery/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 16:00:43 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=263460 Thierry-Noir-Los-Angeles-Exhibition-Howard-Griffin-Gallery-7

Thierry Noir, one of the true pioneers of street art in Europe, is currently showing his works with Howard Griffin Gallery at their pop up location in Los Angeles. This show presents a retrospective of the life and work of the French artist that created miles of illegal murals along the infamous Berlin wall in the 80s, sometimes literally risking his life for the sake of art. The exhibition includes new works created especially for this show, shown alongside rarely seen photographs, interviews and films, documenting his legendary murals. By painting his signature portraits, and simple, bright color characters and symbols, the artist ridiculed the deadly symbol of cold war. He started painting in 1984, and continued doing so for the next five years until its fall, never aiming to embellish the hated structure, but to demystify it. Noir's style strongly relies on line work and simple forms, which was a result of painting quickly in a hazardous environment. His vivid murals and iconic style are a "personal response to the oppressive environment and the timeless nostalgia for the 80s Berlin."

Upcoming: Maya Hayuk – “Light Heavy” @ Cinders Gallery http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/upcoming-maya-hayuk-light-heavy-cinders-gallery/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/upcoming-maya-hayuk-light-heavy-cinders-gallery/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 01:07:28 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=263456 mayaHayuk_glistener

After a successful solo show in Cologne (covered), Maya Hayuk is following that up by opening her first solo show in Manhattan on October 30th. Titled Light Heavy, this will be her third solo with Cinders Gallery, this time at their pop up location at Mulherin NY (124 Forsyth St). The title of the exhibition comes from the feel of the works created for this show - large and textured, the works feel heavy, but the bright colors make them feel light. As seen from a teaser piece above, "the complex conversation between light, color, and space has further evolved" with these new works. Symmetric and strict in composition, Hayuk's paintings and murals feel very lively and energetic at the same time, through her imperfect symmetry and drippy thick lines. This dichotomy is the main idea behind this show, as it symbolizes the eternal and universal balance between good and evil, light and dark. Discuss Maya Hayuk here.]]>

Highlights: Frieze Art Fair (London) http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/highlights-frieze-art-fair-london/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/highlights-frieze-art-fair-london/#comments Sun, 19 Oct 2014 16:15:09 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=263469 33

One of the leading international contemporary art fairs, Frieze London, returned to the heart of the UK’s capital, London’s Regent’s Park, for its 12th edition. This year’s event brings together 162 of the world’s top contemporary galleries to the UK and features exhibitors from 25 countries. New York based artist Kaws was heavily present at the Perrotin Gallery, from his giant Companion sculptures to colourful canvases. Artist Carsten Holler transformed the Gagosian booth into a giant and fun playground Kinder Garten, with oversized dice and giant scrabble, where visitors were invited to squeeze a plush octopus, much to the children's delight. With a price tag of $300K, Jamie Lee Byars created a pink silk Hat for Ten for the Michael Werner Gallery. Ten participants, all dressed in black, interact and collaborate in a form of contemporary dance, all connected through the hoods. Sunny smiley objects from Takura Kawata, Jayson Musson and the Smile Face Museum adorn the walls of the New York gallery Salon 94  with a canary-yellow floor, bringing a happy face to the visitors. Brit artist Mark Wallinger selected works by different artists in order to recreate Sigmund Freud's Hampstead study for the Hauser&Wirth booth. In the corner, oblivious to the dialogue between the conscious and unconscious, is Christoph Buchel's Sleeping Guard. And for 80,000 Euros you can buy the concept, not the man. The most expensive price tag goes to Damien Hirst at the White Cube Gallery. The two part work of fish in formaldehyde from 1993 Because I can't have you I want you sold for £4 millions within the first 15 minutes of the VIP opening. Colour is also a big theme for several galleries, from Yves Klein and Jason Martin at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, to Steven Shearer & Lothar Hempel at Stuart Shave/Modern Art.  Photo credit: Butterfly.]]>

Previews: Ryan De La Hoz – ‘Shadow of Death’ @ SoMA Yacht Club, San Francisco http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/previews-ryan-de-la-hoz-shadow-of-death-soma-yacht-club-san-francisco/ http://arrestedmotion.com/2014/10/previews-ryan-de-la-hoz-shadow-of-death-soma-yacht-club-san-francisco/#comments Sat, 18 Oct 2014 10:09:30 +0000 http://arrestedmotion.com/?p=263378 4

This weekend Bay Area artist Ryan De La Hoz opens his latest solo exhibition Shadow of Death at SoMA Yacht Club in San Francisco. The show will feature an all new collection of work across a variety of mediums we have come to expect from this versatile maker.

De La Hoz's highly graphical style utilises recurring motifs in his work such as television static and ancient Greek imagery in commentary of how the past affects the future. Each of his works involves an element of destruction; a cracked face, a fragmented bust, broken vessels, distorted flowers within his contemporary re-appropriation of classicist imagery.

De La Hoz is very much an analog image-maker, using traditional studio practices with an emphasis on the hand-made. His traditional methodologies and cut-and-paste techniques are blended with new technologies and media such as laser cut sculptures and reassembled jigsaw puzzles to communicate his nostalgically charged aesthetic.

Take a look at a few preview images below courtesy of the artist.

This weekend Bay Area artist Ryan De La Hoz opens his latest solo exhibition Shadow of Death at SoMA Yacht Club in San Francisco. The show will feature an all new collection of work across a variety of mediums we have come to expect from this versatile maker.

De La Hoz's highly graphical style utilises recurring motifs in his work such as television static and ancient Greek imagery in commentary of how the past affects the future. Each of his works involves an element of destruction; a cracked face, a fragmented bust, broken vessels, distorted flowers within his contemporary re-appropriation of classicist imagery.

De La Hoz is very much an analog image-maker, using traditional studio practices with an emphasis on the hand-made. His traditional methodologies and cut-and-paste techniques are blended with new technologies and media such as laser cut sculptures and reassembled jigsaw puzzles to communicate his nostalgically charged aesthetic.
