Previews: Gehard Demetz – “Introjection” @ Jack Shainman Gallery

Tonight (April 27th) at 524 West 24th Street location of Jack Shainman Gallery in New York, Gehard Demetz will be opening a new solo show entitled Introjection. The new sculptures from the Northern Italy-based artist are created in his signature fashion of assembling the works from small modular units of wood, kind of like building blocks. Inspired by the title of the show, a psychoanalytic term for when a person unconsciously takes on behaviors or attributes of other people or of the surrounding world, Demetz has created a intriguing selection […]

Showing: Haroshi – “GUZO” @ Nanzuka gallery

Nanzuka Gallery in Tokyo recently opened the long awaited solo by local artist Haroshi (featured). After many successful shows worldwide, Guzo is the first major exhibition for the artist in his hometown. For this showing, the Japanese artist worked on a new concept and created a series of over 20 figurines carved from salvaged skate decks. After trying several different techniques of repurposing old skateboards over the years, Haroshi went back to the original concept of compressing multiple boards together and then using the resulting solid wooden slab as carving material. Through […]

Showing: Aaron Johnson – “Gone Fishin'” @ Joshua Liner Gallery

On 20th of April, Aaron Johnson opened Gone Fishin’, his first solo with Joshua Liner Gallery. For this showcase, the Brooklyn-based artist prepared a whole new body of diverse work that includes his unorthodox approach to painting and creating art work in general. The idea of the exhibition is to take a different approach to the traditional image of Americana and leisure lifestyle that goes with it. From fishing and hunting, all the way to America’s favorite snacks, Johnson pulled the stereotypical imagery through his own recognizable […]

Showing: Mitar Matich – “Encaustics” @ Galerija Juraj Klovich

Named after the ancient technique of hot wax painting, Encaustics consists of mostly medium and large size works depicting wildlife caught with camera traps. These pieces are the continuation of the Croatian artist’s constant experimenting with different techniques and approaches to creating work. Though not very popular nowadays, encaustic technique was used extensively in the past from Egyptian mummy portraits all the way to works of 20th-century North American artists, to artists in […]

Previews: Kelsey Brookes – “Position” @ Library Street Collective

On April 27th, Library Street Collective will be presenting new works from Kelsey Brookes, his second solo with the gallery in Detroit.

The new pieces investigate both neurotoxins and the Fibonacci sequence, one which is harmful while the other a pattern of perfection in nature, all expressed with his abstract virtual language. Take a […]

Showing: Jamian Juliano-Villani – “Sincerely, Tony” @ Massimo De Carlo (Milan)

Currently showing through the end of the month with Massimo De Carlo in Milan is an exhibition from Jamian Juliano-Villani. Entitled Sincerely, Tony, the new body of work from the American artist, who isn’t shy about appropriation, continues her voracious practice of gathering source material from things like as pop culture, TV, magazines, movies, and art, then filtering them through her mind followed by a collage-like approach of rendering them onto canvas into eerie and surreal compositions. Rounding out the exhibition is a site-specific installation that looks […]
