Openings: Brian Adam Douglas (Elbow-Toe) – “How to Disappear Completely” @ Andrew Edlin

Last month, AM paid a visit to the Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York to take in a new solo show from Brian Adam Douglas (interviewed), otherwise known as Elbow-Toe. Utilizing a painstaking process involving shards of cut paper in place of brush strokes, the resulting art works are amazingly textural and complex. These new pieces deal with the aftermath of natural catastrophes and the rebuilding of life and purpose that must take place. In addition the collage pieces, Elbow-Toe has also included some drawings in this new body of […]

Streets: Elbow-Toe – “Tastes Like Chicken” (New York)

It’s been a while since we caught up with Brian Adam Douglas, a.k.a. Elbow-Toe (interviewed) – the last time probably being in 2011 when we watcheuphill work on the streets as well as open a solo at Black Rat Projects (covered). The Brooklyn-based artist recently surfaced to paste up this new piece entitled Tastes Like Chicken in his borough. The style mimics the time-intensive collage technique he uses for his cut-paper works some of which you can see in March at the Andrew Edlin Booth at The Armory Show in NYC […]

Sketchbook: Elbow-Toe

It’s time to once again revisit our sketchbook feature. This time, we highlight some of the drawings of Elbow-Toe (interviewed) who we recently caught up with in London.  If you remember he was in town for his Black Rat Projects show (covered) and also found time to get up on the streets. Looks like besides his more complicated self-described “cut paper paintings,” the NY-based artist also has some traditional drawing skills. Take a look at more of these studies after the jump that he worked […]

Streets: Elbow-Toe in London

Brian Adam Douglas, a.k.a. Elbow-Toe (interviewed) was in London a couple of weeks ago for his Due Date solo exhibition (covered), currently on at Black Rat Projects.

We were able to witness the joys of trying to […]

Last December, Brooklyn-based Elbow-Toe (interviewed) took his wonderful “cut paper paintings” to the Warrington Museum in the UK.
