Openings: Samuel Lowder – “Time Machine” @ Shooting Gallery

Last Saturday evening, Shooting Gallery hosted the opening of Samuel Lowder aka Freprs’s exhibition entitled Time Machine. This ex-90’s graffiti artist has fully transitioned into creating pop art pieces incorporating layered stencils, with hidden details to be picked out when viewed closely. Time Machine takes the viewer back around 70 years with a cinematic feel with a colorful twist. Discuss Samuel Lower (Freprs) here.

Openings: Aiko & Junko Mizuno @ Merry Karnowsky Gallery

Opening alongside Samuel Lowder’s show (covered) several weeks ago was the work of Aiko and Junko Mizuno. The feminine-styled stencil work of Aiko, from our point of view, was the bridge between the two artists in this joint show forming a cohesiveness between the bodies of work. Mizuno provided her signature cute yet violent imagery dubbed “Gothic Kawaii” or “Kawaii Noir” in a series of paintings and drawings. More pics after the jump…
