The debut show will feature three new series of work from the New York-based Dan Colen: Canopics – sculptures cast from the negative space formed by roadside guardrails mangled by car accidents, Rainbow Paintings – inspired by Disney’s Fantasia, decontextualized backdrops minus the animated characters, and Psychics (Interstellar Medium) – a sound piece of recorded psychic readings with the original […]

Showing: Brad Downey – ‘Souvenirs’ @ Ruttkowski;68

Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne, Germany recently opened a new solo by American artist Brad Downey. Titled Souvenirs, the show features short videos and a series of everyday objects and utilitarian materials juxtapozed in a new context creating a novel meaning. The work raises issues about everything from identity (with his flags drawings), privacy, to self destruction. His series of works with keys touchbase on the notion of access and security. With his techniques of détournement and re-contextualization, Downey reinterprets banal objects to create revelatory artworks. These act as ‘souvenirs‘ as […]

Openings: Patrick Martinez – “FORBIDDEN FRUIT” @ New Image Art

Last week at New Image Art in Los Angeles, the versatile Patrick Martinez unveiled new mixed media works with a show entitled FORBIDDEN FRUIT. The fresh work combines his signature neon light technique with sculpture & painting, taking inspiration from things like hip hop and minority culture. Examples include guns mingling and appearing with common place items like fruits highlighted by neon lights, or imagery products are placed on the wall like strange hybrids – all giving insight into Martinez’s artistic vision.

Dabs Myla x MTV Movie Awards

The Australian husband and wife duo took it to another level with the some of the branding of the show as well as creating on site installations, murals, and sculptural elements much like KAWS did for the VMA’s back in 2013 (covered). The set design was inspired by the artists’ travels and the cities they have visited, but the recreated city was meant to bring up memories of any major American […]
