On Saturday night, AM was on hand to experience the surreal sculptures of Kris Kuksi as Joshua Liner Gallery hosted the opening of his latest show the “Beast Anthology.” As seen in our preview of the show, the show looked like a literal monster, but nothing prepared us for seeing the work in person. The physical intricacies of his craftsmanship coupled with the fantastical stories unfolding in every piece held the packed house in a unique trance that we’ve rarely experienced from an art show in New York.

AM recently had the pleasure of visiting with Tat Ito at the Queens, NY, studio that he shares with his assistant Yuyu Yang. Readers may remember that we thought that Ito was one of the standout new artists included in Joshua Liner Gallery’s excellent summer group show (covered). Well, Mr. Liner must have agreed with us, because Ito has a show with the gallery scheduled for February 2010, and from what we saw during our studio visit, it’s going to be a stunner.
We can’t be EVERYWHERE at once. Fortunately, AM has friends who enjoy art as much as we do. Last Thursday, Josh Liner played correspondent for us and trekked up to Boston to attended “Sacred Monsters” (previewed) at Tufts University Art Gallery. The show showcases some “young guns” of the Japanese art scene – Mr., Chiho Aoshima, Tomokazu (Matsu)Â Matsuyamaâ€™s (interviewed), Oscar, Kenjiro Kitade, Tokyo Kamen, Mahomi Kunikata, Nobuhiro Ishihara and Saito Oiwa. These eight notable mid-career artist have tackled numerous mediums with much success and Tufts […]
On Saturday night, Evan Hecox premiered his first solo, “The Last Thousand Years,” (previewed) in New York. Joshua Liner Gallery was filled with fans eager to get a glimpse of his work. The Vietnamese themed show dazzled onlookers as Evan took the time greet and draw for many of his fans with his book “Urban Abstract” in hand. We even spotted his fellow peers – Matzu and Molly Crabapple hanging out. Overall, the show clearly showcased the talents of Hecox’s architectural abstracts and his ability […]
This is a show that weâ€™ve been waiting patiently for. Evan Hecox is finallyÂ visiting New York and taking over the entire Joshua Liner Gallery. Only Tomokazu Matsuyama (covered) and AIKO (covered) has been bold enough to create a large enough body of work which utilizes the entire gallery space. Known for eye-catching urban landscapes of various locales around the world, Evan has a knack for bringing even the most mundane places to life. For his first solo with the gallery, Evanâ€™s focus will be of […]
Saturday night, AM attended the opening of Joshua Liner Gallery’s summer group exhibition, which collects solid works from a very strong roster of artists, some of whom the gallery has shown previously and others of whom the gallery is working with for the first time. From the show, it is clear that Liner is actively evolving and maturing his gallery. And from the response from collectors and others at the opening, it seems that what he’s doing is working.

The upcoming summer group show (teased/previewed) at Joshua Liner Gallery is packed with heavyweight artists with whom frequent AM readers will already be familiar, such as Dave Kinsey, Joe Sorren and Greg Simkins (interviewed). However, the show will likely be many people’s introduction to several up-and-coming young artists. One of those whom we are particularly interested in is Canadian painter Tristram Lansdowne.

Here’s a little snapshot from Yumiko Kayukawa from her upcoming show “Higashi No Kamisama – God From the East” show at Joshua Liner Gallery which opens July 11th in NYC. If anyone is wondering if she’ll be attending the show, the answer is yes. She’ll be there in person (just like for her M Modern show), so mark your calendars. Discuss Yumiko Kayukawa here.
Here’s a little preview of two artists which have shows opening at Joshua Liner Gallery next weekend. Both their artistic styles look to stretch the imagination of the viewers and challenge their intellects. Heidi Taillefer’s (above) bizarre yet fantastic paintings throw our senses into a strange world where the nature and science seamlessly integrate. On the other hand, Mike Davis (below) has works that makes us ponder the numerous themes and symbolism that are represented through the subjects and objects that are showcased in his […]
Last week when Aiko opened her dynamic show “Love Monster” (covered) at Joshua Liner Gallery, we noted a great installation created out of hand painted, stenciled and collaged spray paint and gallon paint cans.Â Since the doors opened, there have beenÂ numerousÂ inquiries and requests, butÂ these little gems were unfortunately not available for sale. Well, fans are now in luck because Aiko and the gallery have decided to make theseÂ hand created originals available. The price on these gems is a steal: the spray paint cans are $120 and […]
