Openings: “Three-Handed” & “Smother Your Mother” @ Jonathan Levine Gallery

This past weekend, AM caught the opening of the Date Farmers, Eric White (interviewed), Nicola Verlato and Fulvio Di Piazza at Jonathan Levine Gallery. The two shows were unique as it touched on both ends of the spectrum in terms of dimensions with all the way from large scale museum size works to a cornucopia of medium to smaller size pieces. First, we saw the immense paintings from “Three Handed” which featured Eric White, Nicola Verlato and Fulvio Di Piazza. Eric’s breathtaking piece “Massacre of the […]

Really rolling up their sleeves, Armando and Carlos were focused on creating an environment that grabs at the viewers, from Yoda, Prison Shanks, and their trademark symbols on found material, […]
