Preview: Tin @ Copro Nason

Tin’s already near sold-out show “Tainted” is slated to open on November 8th at Copro Nason. We bring you some preview images of this new body of work from this talented artist. Most of these works were the usual pastel on sennelier la cart card (like the one above), but there were also some works in oil (something new he has been experimenting with). More after the jump.

Openings: Lola @ Corey Helford

Lola’s show “The Wondermental” (previewed) opened last Saturday at Corey Helford Gallery. Her paintings looked even more amazing when intricately framed. You just don’t appreciate the size of some of them until you see them in scale. More photos after the jump.

Teaser: Nicoletta Ceccoli @ Richard Goodall

San Marino based artist Nicoletta Ceccoli has sent us some exclusive images from her upcoming show at Richard Goodall Gallery in December.  We have been anticipating this show for quite a while since her job as an illustrator does not allow her time to exhibit as often as her fans would like. Her fairytale-like paintings have been described as a having a Ryden-esque feel to them yet softer and more delicate. In particular, we like the clever way in which her characters are painted such […]

Openings: In Language of Angels @ Ad Hoc

With the DJ spinning and the hipsters of Williamsburg crowded about on Friday night, Ad Hoc Art opened their new show “In Language of Angels”. The six artist show was a nice compliment to the diverse Brooklyn crowd. Seen in the exhibit were: the Manga-esqe Camilla d’Errico, the bold Lisa Alisa, the entrancing Sarah Joncas, the embroidery laced layouts of Simone Maynard, the digitally detailed Mijn Schatje, and the dynamic illustrations of MIA. This was a great show for AM to attend as Ad Hoc […]

Teaser: The Drawing Room @ Thinkspace

Looking forward to this show at Thinkspace on November 7th not only because Audrey Kawasaki is in it, but also because she is curating it. It seems that artist curated group shows (others that come to mind include Luke Chueh and Travis Louie) usually include some very good names from their genre for some obvious reasons. Audrey’s assembled cast is no exception – Stella Im Hultberg, Amy Sol, Kukula, Brandi Milne, Brian Viveros, Catherine Brooks, Mari Inukai, Nomi Chi, Lauren Albert, Jessica McCourt, Julia Sonmi […]

Preview: Joe Ledbetter @ M Modern

Palm Springs will play host to Joe Ledbetter’s solo show “Hunters and Gatherers” tomorrow night at M Modern Gallery. His usual cast of characters play out the multiple stories and interactions that he creates for them. He seems to have moved away from the lighter faded linework that he had been experimenting with in previous shows and again is painting with stronger silhouettes. Some selected pieces after the jump.

Preview: Liz McGrath @ Iguapop

Artist and musician Liz McGrath is opening a show tonight in Spain called “Tears of the Crocodile.”  Her grotesque yet beautiful sculptures have always been eye-catching and strangely fascinating.  Her show at Iguapop will feature many detailed works that must be looked at closely to fully appreciate their intricacies.  Examples of this after the jump.

Preview: Nate Frizzell @ Cerasoli:LeBasse

Nate Frizzell’s “Put on a Happy Face” opens November 8th at the new Cerasoli:LeBasse gallery. He took a little time to talk with us about his first solo show. “With this show, I’m trying to convey the mixed emotions that people have from day to day. Some may be depressing, some happy, some scared, and some brave. I feel like for myself, my mood is constantly changing, and I act accordingly. I put on a different mask to let people know where I stand at […]

Preview: In the Language of Angels @ Ad Hoc

This Saturday, Ad Hoc Art will be opening “In The Language of Angels“. With six young and extremely talented artists from around the world: Sarah Joncas (Canada), Camilla d’Errico (Canada), Mia (USA), Lisa Alisa (Russia), Mijn Schatje (France) and Simone Maynard (Australia), it should be exciting to see each of them display the softer “angelic” side of Pop Surrealism.   We’ve gathered some special preview images of the pieces that will be on display at the show after the jump.
