Showing: “SWIM 1″ @ New Image Art

On July 11th, New Image Art hosted the opening of a large SWIM 1 group show. Put together by young curators Yarrow Slaps & Auguste Somers from SF & LA, this show features a wide array of over 40 artists with vastly different backgrounds – from up-and-coming artists and creative individuals with a strong urge to capture their reality, interests, or life, to legendary Mission school representatives like Barry Mcgee, Alicia Mccarthy, Chris Johanson. While on the surface, the event was a group exhibition at an art gallery, […]

Basel Week Miami ’13: Pulse

One of the long-time satellite fairs we always check out during Art Basel Week in Miami is Pulse. As in previous years, the fair was held at The Ice Palace, just south of Wynwood, and consisted of a wide range of domestic and international galleries, including New Image Art, Martha Otero, Yancey Richardson and Mixed Greens. Visitors were greeted outside by installations by Tim Biskup (seen directly below and Brandon Vickerd, and when inside, they were treated to a dizzying array of intriguing contemporary works by young as […]

ArtPadSF ’12 – “Highlights”

ArtPadSF hosted its second annual boutique art fair over the weekend, which coincides with ArtMrkt and SFFAF. Unlike your traditional art fair with booths, this one takes over the Phoenix Hotel in the heart of the Tenderloin District in San Francisco with each gallery taking up their own room in the hotel, which gives a more laid-back pop-up gallery vibe. Throughout the weekend, various programming (lectures, music performances, panel discussions) took place in the courtyard as well as in the bar of the hotel.The fair […]

Openings: Judith Supine – “Ladyboy” @ New Image Art

“A crazy fun and visually arresting experience” – that’s our take on the opening night of New York-based Judith Supine. As previewed, the exhibition at New Image Art entitled Ladyboy touches on an intimate encounter that the artist once had in Bangkok. Using his signature hypercolor and collaging techniques, Judith transformed the entire space (from floor to ceiling, covering every inch) into something resembling a corner of his unique mind. The gallery was packed from opening moments as fans and a parade of “ladyboys” came […]

Previews: Judith Supine – ‘Ladyboy’ @ New Image Art

Ladyboy, a solo exhibition by collagist Judith Supine, opens at New Image Art in West Hollywood on Wednesday, 13 April. It’s already been three years since the 2008 Dirt Mansion installation — the artist’s first solo effort at English Kills Art Gallery in Brooklyn. Wooster Collective described the show as their favourite of the year and AM can separately confirm that, quite frankly, it rocked. With Ladyboy, we’ve been promised another real spectacle including giant woodcut sculptures measuring up to 14-feet high. It sounds like […]

Basel Week Miami ’10: New Image Art

Last night, New Image Art took over South Beach’s Cafeina for a group exhibition (teased) that should prove to be one of the more compelling events of Art Basel Week. As is often the case, Sao Paulo street art sensations Osgemeos stole the show with their heartfelt interpretations of their Brazilian countrymen, always dressed to impress in colorfully patterned attire. A selection of giant canvases, executed flawlessly with spray cans and incorporating the playful imagery and vibrant palette that has become patented by the Twins, […]

Preview: Cleon Peterson – ‘Daybreak’ @ New Image Art

The art of Cleon Peterson has never been for the fainthearted. Like Pieter Bruegel the Elder‘s painting The Triumph of Death, his unapologetic, graphic depictions of acts of brutality are both disquieting and strangely captivating. Daybreak is the artist’s latest solo show opening this Saturday, November 20th at New Image Art Gallery. The exhibition, which draws inspiration and its title from Nietzsche’s Daybreak: Reflections on Moral Prejudices, marks Peterson’s powerful return with another morally ambiguous and beautifully composed orgy of violence. See our preview of […]

Interviews / Opening: Richard Colman “Keep Out The Light” @ New Image Art

After six months of studio time, and a week in the gallery prior to the opening installing his latest exhibition, Richard Colman opened his “Keep Out The Light” exhibition at New Image Art recently. We have been watching out for updates on how the show was coming together, as Colman’s shows are usually very installation heavy, and always exciting. Richard was pounding the tools until the early hours each day with the install, and the scale & intensity of this show certainly doesn’t disappoint – […]
