Showing: Kenichi Yokono – “The New Suburbs” @ Mark Moore Gallery

Currently at the Mark Moore Gallery in Los Angeles, Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono has a show on view entitled The New Suburbs. The new collection of painted wood carvings are a continuation of what he presented with the same gallery back in 2011 (covered), and are fine examples of Yokono’s modern take on traditional woodcutting. Sourcing the grotesque and mundane from his native country’s culture, the intricate pieces deal with “notions of globalization and consumerism with the overwhelming cuteness (or kawaii) found in popular Japanese […]

Showing: “Positivilly Marvillainous” @ Eric Firestone Gallery

Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton is currently hosting the Positivilly Marvillainous group show, a title borrowed from the smart word play of George Herriman, the creator of the Krazy Kat comic. The power of comics and cartoons, and the way they represent characters and tell the story is the main theme of the show. The idea that “still, simple and sophisticated characters tell our stories better than a complicated plot,” resulted in an exhibition that champion the character itself. The show features works by established and up and […]

Art Focus: Adam Lupton

For this edition of our Art Focus feature, we present to you the work of Canadian artist Adam Lupton. Painted in oils, his portraiture oftentimes features multiple visages blurred together in a fragmented reality that seems to reflect the different struggles his subjects have with identity. Examples of this include different glimpses of a man dressing in drag and snapshots of another person putting on different masks. If you are in Vancouver over the weekend and are interested in seeing his work in person, he has […]

Rewind: Jun 15 – Jul 6

As we share another Rewind feature with you today, you’ll notice the collection of art related videos headlined by a trailer for documentary titled Tim’s Vermeer (via Colossal).

Then, the premise that Vermeer used mechanical means to assist in his paintings can be put to the test. Take a look at the intriguing video […]
