Last week, Mark Jenkins (interviewed) premiered his debut solo show with Lazarides Rathbone entitled Moment of Impact. For his fans in London, the American artist has assembled a selection of provocative mixed media canvases and hyper-realist sculptures. Some pieces like his masked full-size figures are direct translations of his street interventions while others are produced for the gallery setting like the leg which seems to be bursting through a canvas or arms committing seppuku. Enjoy more photos below… Photo credit: Nathalie Thery & Lazarides. Discuss Mark Jenkins here.

From candlelit backrooms to small forest clearings, Incantation sees Roq la Rue Conjuring up a group show based on ritual and mysticism. Occultism is often seen as heretical to mainstream society, but the beliefs and practices are centuries old and firmly rooted in nature and our surroundings. The exhibition features artwork from over a dozen artists, including a few sculptural pieces like Mandy Greer’s black feathered Huldra Adornment. Other artists took the opportunity to bring the subject matter out of the darkness like Jeff Jacobson’s Opulent Hex and Redd […]
AM recently joined the masses at Robischon Gallery for the January 15th opening of Christian Rex van Minnen’s Golden Memes. The show is a homecoming for the New York-based artist, who brought his grotesque re-imagining of the Dutch Golden Age to Denver. The exhibition includes ten pieces of new work, most large in scale, making the bizarre imagery even more powerful. The show will be on display until March 7th, so stop by for a look yourself if you are in the area. Discuss Christian Rex van Minnen here.
Along with Nick Farhi’s solo (covered), Neochrome Gallery is currently showing another show, Surface of Venus by Jamie Sneider, her first in Europe. With a MFA in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in NY, BFA from New York University, and two well received solo exhibitions stateside, this over-the-pond show is a new landmark for the Boston-born artist.

Neochrome Gallery in Turin, Italy, recently opened the first solo show in Europe by American contemporary artist Nick Farhi. The show title FILA: Falling In Love Again, can be seen as kind of a humorous nod to famous Italian sport gear brand that is featured on two of the works, but even more, a reference to his romanticized subject matter. For this exhibition, New York-based painter showed a vast range of different works, highlighting his talent and versatility. Using oils as his basic and primary technique, […]

Coming up in February, the New York City Ballet will be collaborating with their third artist – Dustin Yellin (also see Faile & JR) – in series of special shows. Bringing sculpture into the arena of dance, the performances will feature the Brooklyn-based artist’s signature “window sandwiches” featuring the human form created out of collaged elements. The new pieces, which are extensions of his ongoing Psychogeographies series, will have his subjects put into motion, a nod toward the dancers and their craft. The NYCB third presentation of their Art […]
