Marianne Boesky Sunsets AM 08

Openings: “Sunsets & Pussy” @ Marianne Boesky

Last week, Marianne Boesky Gallery put together a hot (NSFW) group show just in time for the warm weather to hit New York City. Entitled Sunsets & Pussy, this show brings together three generations of artists – Ed Ruscha, Lucien Smith, Betty Tompkins and Piotr Uklański. Each artist contributed works that explored two classic themes of summer wonder. Some tongue in cheek and some a little more subtle, this showcase features some interesting and creative take on the creative theme. Check out a NSFW look below.

Streets: Raymond Pettibon – “No Title (Safe he called…)” (New York)

Joining an illustrious list of artists (see some of the others here) commissioned by The High Line to design a billboard, Raymond Pettibon chose to use his 2010 drawing No Title (Safe he called…). The scene at home plate features the American artist’s characteristic imagery and text which references characters known well to those in New York like The Notorious B.I.G, Jackie Robinson, and Robert Moses. Stop by next time you are taking a stroll on the famed pedestrian walkway (through July 1) and plan to be back when his […]
Israel Lund Eleven Rivington AM 12

Openings: Israel Lund @ Eleven Rivington

Last week, Eleven Rivington (11 Rivington Street location) unveiled a new body of work from Brooklyn-based artist Israel Lund. This intriguing exhibition showcases Lund’s interesting viewpoint and technique. His creative process often starts as an image of nothing, which he then repeatedly silkscreens and forces ink onto the null area. He then manipulates the image by enlarging, degrading or distorting it systematically thus eventually creating something out of nothing. Through this process, Lund extrapolates a unique yet repetitive aspect for each series he creates. Utilizing the CMYK colors, […]

Studio Visits / Previews: Brett Amory – “Twenty-Four in New York” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

As a followup to his showing last year, Twenty-Four in San Francisco, Brett Amory (featured) brings this conceptual vision to the East Coast.

With this as a reference, he produced a total of twelve pieces for the show (six daytime & six nighttime) opening this Saturday night (June 29th) at Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Take a look at some studio shots from Shaun […]

Upcoming: Pose & Revok – “Uphill Both Ways” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

This Saturday night (June 29th), the Jonathan LeVine Gallery will be presenting a two-person exhibition (cureated by Roger Gastman) from Pose and Revok. Uphill Both Ways will bring together the two MSK-affiliated graffiti artists in a show inspired by “legal persecution and loss, as well as general themes of the human struggle.” The Detroit-based Revok will bring with him his abstract geometric panels (seen above), formed from found materials sourced from abandoned structures in the city while the Chicago-based Pose will be showing his cartoonish, fragmented portraits […]

Jeff Koons – “New Paintings & Sculpture” @ Gagosian

Entitled New Paintings & Sculpture, this fresh body of work exemplifies the appeal of Koons and his ability to draw […]
