Updates: Alex Gross Cabinet Card Paintings

Fans of Alex Gross (interviewed) will no doubt know about his special interest in cabinet cards, a style of mounted photography widely used for photographic portraiture after 1870, with the latest produced up to the 1920s. From the dates, you can probably guess that these are collectibles, of which the Los Angeles-based painter has been acquiring for a while now. Gross shared some of his collection with us when we visited his studio back in 2014, so it’s always fascinating for us to see when he paints over […]

Openings: Alex Gross – “Future Tense” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

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 […]

Openings: “Art Truancy – Celebrating 20 Years of Juxtapoz Magazine” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The year was 1994, Pulp Fiction was ruling the box office, The Beastie Boys were blasting Sabotage and a group of artists out in sunny California were brainstorming on how to start a Kustom Kulture magazine, that (unbeknownst to them) would eventually go on to be the most widely distributed and influential art magazine in the world. Famed painter Robert Williams (originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico) was riding a California wave, while collaborator, Fausto Vitello, was ripping with his Thrasher Magazine success, and with some key […]

Openings: Alex Gross – “Product Placement” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Opening alongside Victor Castillo last month at Jonathan LeVine was Los Angeles-based artist Alex Gross (interviewed). Entitled Product Placement, the show presented a new series of paintings that expands on the themes from his prior work such as Consumption, Branding, Celebrity, Love and Mortality. Using refined strokes and techniques, Gross skillfully rendered mundane objects and mixed them into a world where luxury brands are the common focus of his alluring subjects. It’s also interesting to see the typographic examples of foreign elements in his compositions. We especially enjoyed the […]
