Openings: Anthony Lister – “Power Tripping” @ Jonathan LeVine Gallery

The many faces of Anthony Lister (art mutant, street vandal, superhero activist), turned up with a couple hundred handfuls of adoring fans for his latest solo show in NYC at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery, appropriately titled Power Tripping. If you are a fan of the Australian artist and his fairly constant parade of off-hand social shenanigans, then you’re in luck, as there were no shortage of them at this opening. There were more then a few costume changes throughout the course of the evening, including some social satire […]

Upcoming: Kelsey Brookes – “Sleep: The Science and the Mystery” @ Library Street Collective

On July 25th, Library Street Collective in Detroit will be hosting new works from Kelsey Brookes collectively entitled Sleep: The Science and the Mystery. Drawing on his past life as a biochemist, the San Diego based artist paints chemical and molecular structures with loosely defined abstract shapes and patterns. The resulting psychedelic swirls can put the viewer almost into a trance-like state if one stares at the work too long, mesmerized by the vortex of vibrant colors. Discuss this show here.

Openings: Chie Yoshii & Casey Curran – “In The Darkness of Mere Being” & “Indeterminate Apotheosis” @ Roq La Rue

In The Darkness of Mere Being, Chie Yoshii’s first solo show, opened at Roq la Rue in Seattle on July 3rd. Titled after a quote from the great Carl Jung, the art explores many of the Swiss psychotherapist’s hypotheses about the psyche and our subconscious – rich colors emerging from the darkened forest to subjects bathed in moon light. Individuality was a large part of Jung’s work in psychology, and is represented here by a different animal in each piece. While some are bold and dominant, […]

Previews: Interesni Kazki – “Inter Arma Silent Musae” @ Studio Cromie

Ukrainian art duo Interesni Kazki are currently in Italy where they are adding the final touches to their newest body of work for the upcoming Inter Arma Silent Musae show with Studio Cromie. The show opens on the 12th of July. The turbulent situation in their homeland caused the artists to put their works on hold and literally stop creating new art. The strong tension during the revolution and the pre-war surroundings just stopped their creative energy, and forced them to put down their brushes and paint […]

Showing: Kenichi Yokono – “The New Suburbs” @ Mark Moore Gallery

Currently at the Mark Moore Gallery in Los Angeles, Japanese artist Kenichi Yokono has a show on view entitled The New Suburbs. The new collection of painted wood carvings are a continuation of what he presented with the same gallery back in 2011 (covered), and are fine examples of Yokono’s modern take on traditional woodcutting. Sourcing the grotesque and mundane from his native country’s culture, the intricate pieces deal with “notions of globalization and consumerism with the overwhelming cuteness (or kawaii) found in popular Japanese […]

Art Focus: Adam Lupton

For this edition of our Art Focus feature, we present to you the work of Canadian artist Adam Lupton. Painted in oils, his portraiture oftentimes features multiple visages blurred together in a fragmented reality that seems to reflect the different struggles his subjects have with identity. Examples of this include different glimpses of a man dressing in drag and snapshots of another person putting on different masks. If you are in Vancouver over the weekend and are interested in seeing his work in person, he has […]
