Recap: Inka Essenhigh – “Comet Dust & Crystal Shards” @ Jacob Lewis Gallery

Jacob Lewis Gallery recently held it’s inaugural exhibition with New York artist Inka Essenhigh. Entitled Comet Dust & Crystal Shards, this new body of work was created over the span of a calendar year with the focus of seasons as inspiration of each composition.

Showing: Nicoletta Ceccoli – “Sweet & Low” @ AFA (New York)

Almost two years after her last show in New York, Nicoletta Ceccoli (interviewed) has unveiled new paintings at AFA NYC. Entitled Sweet & Low, the fresh body of work continues the exploration of her delicate female characters in a land of dessert. As seen commonly in the San Marino-based painter and illustrator’s work, the innocence of the setting is balanced by an undercurrent of dark themes seen when her imagery is examined more closely. Discuss Nicoletta Ceccoli here.

Openings: Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, Damon Soule – “Momentum” @ Space Gallery

Arrested Motion was on hand for the Saturday, November 8th opening of “Momentum”, the three person show featuring Mars-1, Oliver Vernon and Damon Soule  at Space Gallery in Denver, Colorado.  The highlight of the exhibition was a 10′ by 23′ piece that was a collaboration of all three artists (called The Furtherrr Collective when assembled), a piece so large and powerful in texture, color, and size that it feels as if a riff has opened up and the wall has become a worm hole into […]

Recap: Esao Andrews – “Epilogues” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

Jonathan LeVine Gallery recently closed a successful solo show by Esao Andrews titled Epilogues. Being his second show with the gallery, the paintings continue and revisit the imagery from his previous exhibition and form a coherent body of work when taken together. Burnt hot air balloons, fabric patterns, flocks of crows, snakes, are just some of the recurring elements that can be noticed in more than one painting. The main focus of these pieces was the ongoing narrative in Andrew’s work, and a challenge to give some sort […]
