Returning to the site of his last solo show (covered), Dave MacDowell (interviewed) presented a new body of work over the weekend at the Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City. Entitled Project Mayhem, the exhibition certainly caused some damage that as MacDowell targeted anyone and everyone with his special form of caricatured satire – from religious, to political figures, and pop culture icons. Take a look at more photos from the opening below… Photo credit: theonepointeight for Arrested Motion. Discuss this show here. Discuss David MacDowell here.

Last month, besides hosting Jacub Gagnon’s (interviewed) joint show with Yosuke Ueno, Elements and Oddities (covered), Thinkspace also presented the work of master satirist Dave MacDowell. As he intimated to us in an interview before the show opened, the new body of work, Lowbrow Love Letter was a lighthearted riff on the entire movement’s imagery and artists (you can see his Mark Ryden and Chet Zar inspired paintings above). The show has now closed but you can take a look at more opening shots after the jump…
This Saturday night, master satirist painter Dave MacDowell will be opening a new show at the Thinkspace Gallery. Collectively entitled Lowbrow Love Letter, the new body of work tackles some stereotypes of the so-called lowbrow subgenre with a lot of “big eye girls, monsters, and depressed naked girls” all the while utilizing his brilliant wit and eye for celebrity and pop culture. Take a look after the jump at some questions and answers as we sit down for a chat about the upcoming show and […]
It appears two things motivate Bay Area residents with a vengeance; Halloween and Wes Anderson. The effects of both were on full display during Spoke Art’s Bad Dads: A Tribute to Wed Anderson (previewed) group exhibition. Curated by our friend Ken Harman, managing online editor over at Hi-Fructose, the event served as the best excuse humanly possible to break out the cowboy hats, track suites, headbands and Zissuo red beanies in honor of one of the finest writer/directors of our generation. Despite the excellent costume […]
