Openings: Robert Lazzarini – “(damage)” @ Marlborough Gallery (Chelsea)

Do not adjust your browser – nothing is wrong with the settings. It’s visual distortion at its finest and this is what Robert Lazzarini intends. Last week, AM attended the opening of (damage) at Marlborough Gallery’s Chelsea location in New York to check out a series of works that takes Lazzarini’s mind-bending technique and incorporates the concept of “damage.” From a vault and its unhinged door to a broken window, Lazzarini demonstrates a warped perspective, but also its integrity and utility (or lack thereof). Our favorite is a […]

Upcoming: Robert Lazzarini – (damage) @ Marlborough Gallery (Chelsea)

This Thursday (January 10th), the Marlborough Gallery in Chelsea will be hosting the opening of Robert Lazzarini newest solo – (damage). The New York-based sculptor is known for his mind-bending works that take everyday objects and distorts them, leading the viewer to try to wrap their brain and eyes around the creation – oftentimes failing. For this exhibition, it sounds like Lazzarini will be twisting a window (above), safe, chain-linked fence, liquor sign, padlock, and motel door to disorient the audience, evoking an unsettling reaction.

Benefits: RxArt 2011 Gala

AM recently attended the annual RxArt benefit gala. The non-profit organization dedicated to placing original fine art (see Jeff Koons) in patient and examination rooms of hospitals have long garnered the staunch support from some other big names in art such as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Yoshitomo Nara, Marilyn Minter and Ed Ruscha. This year the silent auction was once again filled with impressive original works from notables such as Nate Lowman, José Parlá, Matthew Brannon, Aurel Schmidt, Terry Richardson, Ed Templeton, Tim Barber, Robert […]

Details: KAWS x Robert Lazzarini – “Distorted Companions”

In case you missed it yesterday, KAWS put up for sale his latest release – a set of collaboration figures with Robert Lazzarini. Unfortunately, they quickly sold out. But lucky for you, AM ran down the delivery man in order to provide a detailed look into the “Distorted Companion” figures (previewed). These jaw-dropping works blend KAWS’ iconic Companion with Lazzarini’s signature distortion treatment. The three figures were released each in three different colors: brown, gray, and black. Also, each Companion received a unique mold to […]

Openings: “Postermat” @ The Hole Gallery

AM recently attended The Hole Gallery’s latest show Postermat. The group exhibition was a little different than the typical group show because they went all retro with it. Imagine going back to your childhood and rummaging through mall shops for your favorite posters of sports, rockbands, singers or even comic books – almost everyone had a cheap but cool poster that was maybe mass produced, but meant the world to us. In the same spirit, the good folks at the Hole and Levi’s, got together […]

Releases: KAWS x Robert Lazzarini – “Distorted Companions”

Wow, what a stunning collaboration between Robert Lazzarini, well known for his distorted sculptures, and KAWS in what we like to call the “Distorted Companions”. Lazzarini, who you may remember recently exhibited his twisted brass knuckles alongside KAWS’ work at the It Ain’t Fair exhibition (covered) by OHWOW during Art Basel Week, is a fellow Brookylnite and seems to be a natural partner for the re-engineering of the iconic figure on its 10th anniversary. Early word (which may or may not be accurate) on these […]
