Preview: Jonathan LeVine @ Scope Miami/Aqua Wynwood

After not participating in art fairs for a while, gallerist Jonathan LeVine decided to double-down this year by showing in not one, but two Miami fairs. At Scope Miami, LeVine will be exhibiting a solo show by GQ Artist of the Year, Shepard Fairey. And at Aqua Wynwood, LeVine has two booths: one showing works by Ray Caesar, Xiaoqing Ding and Adam Wallacavage, and another with a solo show of WK Interact. The above pics were all that AM was provided with, but we’ll be […]

Preview: New Image Art @ Aqua Hotel Miami

Like last year, LA’s New Image Art will be down in Miami to participate in the Aqua Hotel fair. The intimate and accessible setting of a hotel room is a great place to chat art with the gallery’s knowledgeable owner, Marsea Goldberg, and to peruse works by her impressive roster of artists. This year, New Image will be showing Bast, Kelsey Brookes, The Date Farmers, Judith Supine, Anthony Lister, Neckface, Swoon and Deanna Templeton, among others.

Preview: “Looking Glass” @ Basel Miami (2008) – Part II

Andrew from Thinkspace has sent over some more images for part II of our preview for his “Looking Glass” show during Art Basel week. We would have to say the crown jewel would have to be the piece that Audrey Kawasaki posted on her blog last weekend. This piece was part of her installation for her “Drawing Room” show but was not completed at that time if you remember. See more pieces from the show after the jump … and check out part I of […]

Asbestos @ Safehouse Gallery

Dublin based street artist Asbestos’ newest show at Safehouse Gallery features portraits of boxers from the Ligoniel Amateur Boxing Club in North Belfast. His works are reminiscent of JR’s recent show which also featured photorealistic images on found objects – well, obviously for JR since they were photos but these works from Asbestos are combination of photography and painting. His moniker is explained in his words “street art is a little bit like Asbestos. Asbestos is all around us (in the walls and in the […]

Preview: Joshua Liner Gallery @ Scope Miami

Joshua Liner Gallery was nice enough to send us some images of works that the gallery is showing at this year’s Scope Miami art fair. Liner has a strong bill for Scope, showing Aiko, Kris Kuksi and Matzu—all artists who have already reached some level of success, and whose art will no doubt be well-received by the throngs of art collectors from around the world. From the preview pics, it looks like Aiko and Matzu have each contributed several bold, large-scale paintings; images of Kuksi’s […]

Preview: Chris Berens @ Roq La Rue

Like something out of a lucid dream, Chris Berens’ paintings are as enigmatic and imaginative as they come. Both from a technical perspective as well as an aesthetic viewpoint, there is something wonderfully amorphous and endless about his work. His art appears as sinister as it does beautiful, teetering that fantastical line between foreign yet familiar, gorgeous yet grotesque, bizarre yet natural. With certain elements appearing crystal clear and others blurred, it’s as if they were representations of a person attempting to transcribe the images […]

Openings: Travis Louie @ FUSE gallery

Travis Louie’s first solo in New York was as good as the Adams Family was strange and boy was it strange… err good… umm… well both actually. Uniquely hidden away at the back of a hip East Village bar, the FUSE Gallery premiered Strange Neighbors (previewed/interviewed) to a crowded and energetic group. AM was on hand as Travis presented a bountiful 15 piece show (which is more than his usual for any show). Each painting was beautifully executed and well crafted. Each character was accompanied with a […]
