Previews: Eric Yahnker – “Alternative Fiction” @ The Hole (Art Brussels)

After a showing at The Hole in New York last year (covered), Eric Yahnker will again be the gallery’s focus when Art Brussels opens tomorrow. As evidenced by the work that will be on display, the Los Angeles-based artist has not lost his sense of humor as he continues to navigate political issues, pop culture, and memes with ease (sometimes his best paintings are a combination of these themes). Take a look at more preview images below… Discuss Eric Yahnker here.

Recap: Clare Rojas – The Inexhaustible Middle” @ Alice Gallery

Alice Gallery in Brussels recently had a solo from Clare Rojas on display entitled The Inexhaustible Middle. Continuing her move to abstraction and color study, the new works from the American artist distill her folk art-like imagery into patterns, geometric shapes, and linear forms in her distinctive palette. Along with presenting her latest works on canvas and paper, Rojas also performed songs in her “folk-bluegrass” style under the pseudonym of singer-songwriter Peggy Honeywell.

Previews: Emily Mae Smith – “Tesla Girls” @ Rodolphe Janssen

On October 13th, Rodolphe Janssen in Brussels will be showing for the first time the works of American artist Emily Mae Smith. The concept of Tesla Girls was inspired by Christopher Priest’s 1995 novel The Prestige and the idea of a faulty teleportation machine that creates nonidentical duplicates of a person. With this idea in mind, Smith is continuing her signature series of female portraits recognizable by round glasses, sharp hairstyles and lack of distinguishable features. These images render the female body as a blank canvas, open for interpretation. With the […]

Showing: Isaac Cordal – “La Comédie humaine” @ La Médiatine

Currently in Brussels, Isaac Cordal’s show entitled La Comédie humaine is on view at La Médiatine. The series of sculptures and installations continues to document the lives of the little cement businessmen that the Spanish artist is known for, mirroring his work on the streets. It’s always interesting so see how the sculptor from Galicia uses the indoor space as he is able to expand on his public art with larger scale installations that further explore his satire and commentary on politics, bureaucracy, power, and environmental issues. Discuss Isaac […]

Previews: Clare Rojas – “The Inexhaustible Middle” @ Alice Gallery

Clare Rojas will be featured soon in a solo entitled The Inexhaustible Middle at Alice Gallery in Brussels starting September 15th. Along with presenting her latest works on canvas and paper, Rojas will perform songs in her “folk-bluegrass” style under the pseudonym of singer-songwriter Peggy Honeywell. With this new body of work, the San Francisco-based artist has been working with patterns while utilizing different compositions and colors. Because she was “letting different visuals reveal themselves, within one work, through variations,” her “main concern was just having the work feel balanced.” Using a limited palette […]

Upcoming: Maya Hayuk – “Grow Room” @ Alice Gallery

On 3rd of March Maya Hayuk will be back at Alice Gallery in Brussels to open her third solo with the gallery – Grow Room. From the few preview images we’ve seen, the show will include more complex compositions from the Brooklyn-based artist. Through intricate patterns and lush colors, Hayuk creates paintings and murals that recall traditional Ukrainian crafts, airbrushed manicures, and mandalas. Both rebelliously psychedelic and strictly symmetric, her works balance between creating a visual illusion and reusing orthodox weaving patterns. The new pieces look to be further experimentations, […]
